    What's the best affordable 2d animation software these days? I want to make cartoons about 5-15 minutes long and will do my own voiceovers. I'm not a great artist and I want to be able to do other styles than just Manga. It would be useful to be able to put my own sound effects into it too.

    Is 3d very hard to learn and do you have to be a reasonably good artist to use it?

    Any help/experience/opinions greatly appreciated.


  • There's GIMP and Paint.NET (if you're on Windows) for 2D, and Blender and POVRay for 3d. All are free.

    You can use Microsoft Movie Maker to create the animation. It used to be free but I don't know if it is still available.
