    I'd like to learn how to do 3d modeling and animation for modern games. I can already make decent meshes, but I need a program that I can use to learn how to animate models.
    Does anyone know one that falls within these guidelines?
    <> Not really expensive. Preferably less then 200 US dollars.
    <> Not super complicated.
    <> Well documented.

    Thanks in advance. :grin:

    if you want to learn, register yourself on the Autodesk website as a student, this will allow you to download any of their programs for free ( non commercial work ) and get Motion Builder for one of the best animation programs.
