I have some free time on my hand and been learning spanish. But I still have quite amount of free time available. I would like to learn animation similar to what the society produces (or sub contracts out) with the caleb videos. I have about 10-15 hours a week available to invest in this hobby. Could anyone help me with suggestion of software that would be advisable for a beginner? My ideal platform is one that has a free or low price for home base use with the option to upgrade to commerical use with a reasonable price (something under $200 US dollars). I eventually would like to use the software I learn to use to have no copyright restriction once upgraded to commerical package. Also if you have any suggestions to websites on the topic that would help also.
