Use After Effects features on Linux with Natron

Today we are going to tackle a hot topic through Diolinux contacts, many people who migrate from Windows and Mac OSX find in Adobe's stand a perfect nook for their productions, especially visuals.

My goal with the article is not to suggest that the popular Adobe package is simply dispensable, I fully understand who adheres to the software and the integration that they provide, but coming to Linux won't leave you without tools to work with.
