    "Wonderful free 3D modeling and animation software. The learning curve is VERY steep but there are a ton of YouTube videos you can watch to learn how to use the software. Learning how to use the keyboard shortcuts is really beneficial. "

    "DAZ Studio Pro offers a lot of great features and seems to be free after registration. After I registered and downloaded I realized none of this was free and I was expected to upgrade my service as soon as the program booted. Not free at all! "

    "Animation and editing software these days can come at a hefty price and so Maefloresta TupiTube would be a good option to try out if you are starting out and would like to have a hand in experiencing the basics. Beyond that, however, you would probably need more advanced software in order to fully experience everything that comes with animation and editing. "
