Default Re: Best 3d animation software?

3D animation programs:

None free, but trials may be available:

3D Studio Max (Of course)
Lightwave,
Cinema 4D

Free:

Blender,
Anim8or ( http://www.anim8or.com ) (Probably the best free one, and is more like 3D Studio Max, so its rather easy to swap between them)

As for textures, Photoshop is probably the best. Find a trial here:
