hi. im trying start a new project that needs human animation. i have not enough budget to use a motion capture. there are some programs that work with kinect or some special cameras like iclone but they have lots of  limitatons and dont give enough quality. are there any programs that let simulate animations easy and doesnt make you animate frame by frame. for begining ijust want it for animation system and not for cinematics. what is the best choice for me? thank you for helping

Hi,

 

In my opinion, if you want to stay with custom animations made by you, then there is nothing out there which is both inexpensive and easy.  Custom animations take money to make them easier, otherwise you must make them manually.  Some software allows you to create paths which avoids much of the frame by frame work, but if you want things easier across the board, then that takes money.

 

Blender is probably the best no cost way of animating, but many find it not so easy. Mixamo/ Mixamo Fuse is one of the "easier" ones and has nice quality, but it takes money.  Look at the license - perhaps they let you use the free version if you don't include it in a sold product of yours - I don't know.  There are no cost student and/or indy developer versions of 3D softare, but here again that takes effort on your part to create art.

 

Real artists are those that make things themselves rather than taking others' work and claiming credit as an artist, just as food for thought.  Sorry but there is very little out there that is both easy and no cost.  No free ride to glory exists as far as I know in the animations area.
