    Didn't want to leave an overly long comment in the first place, but now I know that could fit your requirements we can nerd out!

    2 things that I loved in AE you do in Principle. Key-framing and LayerComps.

    Key-framing is an obvious one, but some tools I have used you just have to say how things animate over time. Where as in Principle you go to the part of an animation and push your UI into the write point. But instead of key-framing over time, you are setting the animation based on distance moved by scroll!

    LayerComps make AE awesome. Make a shape animate it, then replace its content later once you have animated it right. In Principle you can drop in a shape/picture and animate. Once you have done the animation you can simply swap the image; put new elements within the image (images can become groups on the fly) or anything. And that retains the animation/motion.

    I found one dudes video on youtube and was able to build a nice prototype. Then I found these videos that made using Principle a breeze: principleformac.com/tutorial.html
