Anything we missed?

How long can I use the Starter version for?

Good news. There is no limit to how long you can use the Starter version for. It is free. Forever. And we intend to add many new features and improvements for all. No credit card required.

What benefits will I get with a Professional licence?

You’ll gain access to some of our most powerful features including Forge Dynamics, Dynamic Rendering and Lottie Export. You can also render compositions at any resolution you like and benefit from priority email support. In addition, a Professional licence provides access to cutting edge beta features like the Layout Shape, Sound and Motion Stretch.

How do I upgrade from Starter to Professional?

You can upgrade at any time from within the Cavalry app or by simply purchasing a new subscription after logging in at checkout.

Does Cavalry require a subscription?

The Starter version can be used for as long as you like without providing any billing details. A Professional licence is only available via subscription to support continuous development and a regular release cycle, getting more features in to the application sooner. We publish our roadmap and invite input from our community via Discord.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription at any time via your Account page. Your licence will automatically expire at the end of the current billing period.

The SINGLE MOST EXCITING development to occur in motion design in the last 3 years: the developers of MASH are cooking up a new animation tool. Is this really happening? For really reals?

Essentially the way I describe it is, it’s a 2D tool. It’s designed to do a lot of the things After Effects does, but it’s built more like Cinema 4D where you create procedural systems and it’s really cool. It’s really fun to play with.

I could repost anything the @cavalry__app team is sharing at this point, just bonkers amazing stuff coming from them! So excited for this tool.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the early Cavalry beta today, and I’ve been having a blast messing around with it. It’s a fun tool to learn and use, and I’m really curious to see how it develops - feels like it’s got the potential to be a real game changer!
