yeah, it does animation, I've got it myself. Its great, but far too advanced for me. I dunno about you, but as far as I'm concerned, it'd take you ages to find out what everything does. If anything, its too advanced to start animation on really, but you wont run out of stuff to mess around with

despite the difficult and advanced form of the rendering etc, the animation is actually quite easy, in some ways it is easier than other programs that I use such as Flash (I know its only 2D). I dont know much about any others, so I can only really tell you about Maya, but I think its a good place to start. Apparently Max3Ds (or sommat like that) is quite good (never used it myself) so maybe try that out.
