Okay, so I'm asking this here, because I don't have an account on any other question site, and I'm far to lazy to make one.
I have decided that I really REALLY wanna learn how to do 3D animation. Like, badly. But the programs are of course insanley expenssive. (I've seen a few places to get them for free, but I don't ACTUALLY want my computer to get some virus and crash from that).
Now for the most part, the programs I've looked at seem to cost anywhere between $500- $2000, not including any extra bits that the program doesn't already come with. So of course, because I'm a 17 year old girl, I don't just carry around that kind of cash. I'm looking for a job currently to pay for that because I refuse to ask my parents for that kind of money. (Well any money, I've never even asked them for $5)
Anyway, my question is, that because those softwares are so expenssive, I don't want to just drop $1000 on something that turns out to be complete crap. So if any of you have suggestions as to which would be a good program to get, I would really love to hear it. <3

There are some good free ones and you don't have to worry about getting viruses as long as you get it from the actual site. I'd stay away from sites like mediafire those are ticking time viruses or anything shady.
What I usually do is I'll type in the name of the program on google then type in a space and after the name just type in wikipedia. Those software programs should have a wikipiedia page and through wikipedia it will direct you to the name of the actual website.
I go this from yahoo answers
okay so lets say one of the names of the programs on there was anim8or then you would finds its wiki page and on the right hand side it tells you its legit website where you can download it.
I hope this helps sweetheart <30
