Obviously we won't know until someone gets their hands on it
Yeah I agree. From the looks of Invision Studio, I think it is going to disappoint in what I hopes it would be. This looks more closely aligned to what I am wanting from a UI tool.
If Framer had components that would be awesome, but copying from one file to another is the old school of doing things.
makes me a little skeptical. Studio played coy too which made people think it's a lot more than it is.
This whole waiting for a roll out thing is just to build hype. If they build to much hype around something it more than likely will fail to meet expectations.
@jshmllr so framer's plugins are called modules? I didn't even know this existed.

The video doesn't do it justice. I'm the type of person that typically watches the vid then moves on unless it really peaks my interest. At first glance it just seemed like it does everything Studio is doing... but after reading the article it really seems like they are taking a thoughtful approach to it. I really liked the point that elements should have states and having pre-defined page sizes is kind of crazy when you think about. Thanks for sharing @chriscarterux

@bryn 's point about every tool trying to be a "faster" sketch is exactly why I haven't been that hyped on new tools. The only axis they improve on is speed and workflow efficiency with basic tools. There's no improvement on creative output.
Could be why there's a lot more work looking the same.. less evolution. Try to do something _new_ in Sketch and it suddenly gets 5x more difficult/impossible.
We need more powerful tools, with more creative options and that let us explore more. Taking time to get to solutions isn't a bad thing. It looks like Phase is paying SOME lip service to this.
Still nowhere has reached the level of power of illustrator / photoshop but with the efficiency of Sketch. Meaning we're in a highly efficient, creative stasis. And constantly moving along that. I realize it's all up to the designer, but since there's all these tools I'm just sharing what I'd like to see.
