URL Hacks - Quick Actions - Something in between?

I work for a wealth management firm, and we use many URL hacks for starting new records with near 50 fields (trade order instructions, opportunities to new accounts, etc). Is there any other way than using a quick action to make it lighting ready? It's absolutely tedious to have to add all those fields into an action, not to mention the layout is then completely different than the record type/layout of the applicable object. I noticed that when attempting to use a preexisting URL hack in lighting, it does still pull up a window for creating the correct object, with all the fields and the correct layout, just nothing populating. Is there anything that combines these two functions that is lighting ready? This seems like such an obvious issue.

You literally didn't read my post. I understand Quick Actions can technically do it, but I explained multiple reasons as to why it doesn't work well for us.

I tried using that tool, but it didn't find any of our URL hack buttons.
