    "the great thing about blender is it's animation features. This software is not a good source to me because of its difficulty to understand. I think that this software will be more for someone that is advanced in their knowledge dealing with graphics design. "

    "Wow, thank you so much for letting me know about Maya! As a student, I really needed something that i was going to be able to really learn with and hone my animation skills. This program fit the bill perfectly. It first gave me a free trial for 30 days, which was great, because when your a college student, you don't always have that money to just throw down on something that may not work for you. Then I found out that they offer an educational license for free for 3 years! The software works perfect for what I need."

    "I like how it's versatile enough to be accessible to anybody regardless of experience level, even a newbie like me. It's an excellent way to bring my shoddy 2-d stick people to life. I had no idea I was so creative."
