I know this is not the optimal type of question. Sorry for that. However I think it can be answered by listing some alternatives.
So I want to make videos about travel and I am looking for a tool for making animated maps.
I use Magix Video Pro X8 for editing my videos. It has a "travel animation feature" included, however I think it is too cumbersome to use, some of the features seem to be no longer working and it does not allow me to do more fancy animations (like just showing the shape of a country and the main cities)
I also tried to use QGIS with OSM data, but again it seems that there has to be an easier way.
I found the geolayers plugin for Adobe After Effects, but it is just too expensive for video editing being just my hobby. Also After Effects is only distibuted as a monthly subscription which I don't like because I only do video editing once a month.
I think the following videos show approximately what I want to achieve, especially the third one:
What tools could I use to achieve similar results? (I am using windows)
