***Compositing Software/Tutorial/Info Links***

People are asking questions about what software should I use and stuff like that so I'm making a permanant info page to help out everone so this kind of information is more readily available.

This is a works in progress. I'm still working on it now but I thought I would post what I have so far. I will be periodically adding things to this. I also have a thread were I want people to give me additional links to add to this document.
