This is almost exactly how I feel about it. I'd love to support these guys. I got on the Sketch bandwagon pretty early on almost entirely because they were going head to head with Adobe. I liked that. The fact that their tool was superior to Photoshop for my workflows was almost icing on the cake at that point.
I LOVE the idea of a CAD approach to design software. But at $300/year... Its a tough justification to make this early on in the game.
I really regret not backing it on Kickstarter back then... I spent quite a few years as an Architectural designer before making the move to digital. I was spoiled by Building Information Modeling tools like Revit. Design software is so far behind the curve and I feel like Subform's approach is a real promise to get us to where we need to be.
Regarding price, I'd be much more willing to drop the cash on it if there were even an 8 hour free trial. But I totally agree that these things take money to build.
How much money did Bohemian turn down before you decided to build your own tool? ;p I've honestly been anticipating an InVision / Sketch merger for a while now. Studio is big news.
Seriously though — I'm excited for this. InVision has been an invaluable tool for us when it come to communicating with engineering. The idea that the process will be seamless now is very exciting. And I agree — January can't come soon enough.
Interesting that they didn't choose to increase the storage options on their Professional plan. Not much of an incentive to upgrade from the Plus plan.
