View Full Version : A good cheap animation program?

07 July 2002, 10:39 AM
I'm looking for a good 3d animation program for under like $300. I heard Animation:master was good, but are there any others?

CharacterFX seems promising.. it has weighted verts and IK, but I really haven't taken it for a spin. It costs, erm, $30?

If u got $300 bucks to spend I would buy Bryce, Vue Esprit, Amorphium Pro or Animation master. All are good and quite powerful.

If you're a student you can get Lightwave for $395

My brother currently has Animation Master with some training tapes. He is now looking to go to LightWave. If he does I'm sure he'd sell you A:M and the videos for a great price. Let me know, here is my e-mail:
