is there any free animation software out there? I already own Pivot 3, and was wondering if there were any other good free animators.

Blender is pretty good for 3D animation.
not on par with stuff like Maya, of course, but they've made movies with it, it's pretty damn powerful for a freeware program.

Actually I find video tutorials much more helpful.

also, maybe you could get a cheap book about blender via ebay? that's always a good idea.

But like any 3D program, Blender has a very steep learning curve and you WILL get frustrated while trying to learn it. If you know someone who works with 3D programs, ask him to help you and to show you some things, that would be a HUUGE help.

THE only way to get good free animation software would mean you would have to become a PIRATE in order to keep the authorities at BAY.

well for 2D animation software, just download a flash trial and crack it or something, it's pretty much the best 2D animation tool around.

or, you could do it the old fashioned way and scan pencil drawings.

for 3D, Blender is the best thing you can get for free.

EDIT: the movie they made with blender was called "Elephant's dream" or something like that. it looks totally awesome.

I used Blender in this class I had at school. It was a bitch to use, but it was still awesome. Man, I miss using Maya
VERY METAL!
