I think everyone would like animation tools for AC3D.

Poser is ridiculously easy to learn, and it's very cheap compared to 3Ds. It's about $250 US for the latest version; I got mine as a promotional upgrade for $100.

Honestly, pirating 3DS hurts the independent game and film industries. It damages the market for affordable mid-range alternatives that small studios rely on.

I hear ya'! I always prefer to try software before I buy it, too.

Here's the link:
http://downloads.smithmicro.com/us/u...e.php?cat=1349

If you're into freehand drawing at all, Manga Studio on that same page is pretty fun, too.

Well, last I heard it boils down to this:
The way AC3D is set up right now is incompatible with animation, and that to add animation to AC3D would require pretty much an entire rewrite of the program, from scratch.

Least, I think that was the explanation, last I heard.
Not that I wouldn't shell out for a separate sister program to do animations in (sort of like how JASC had Paintshop Pro and Animation Shop as two different programs).

we should start a rally, if every memeber kept pestering the developers they might eventually give in, like shawshank redemption

Yes, because constantly annoying him is a *GOOD* idea...
Throwing presale offers at him, on the other hand...
