in the end i think it's not about the software really today, it's more about the artist / user who defines / creates the work.


Just wondering where you read that 3dsmax is dropping Animation support?

i dont disagree blender and 3d max are good, but as a newbie artists in 3d modeling i prefer cinema4d its easy to use... straight forward same command keys as Photoshop runs fast on any rig even if its old... and has the power Maya has... minus some render parts... but as well as blender and other 3d modeling software they got their own plugins and effects i suggest take a look at it.. and oh not to mention cinema4d key frame system is so easy to work with and skeletal animation :X i purely recommend it for people new to 3d modeling.(2.5 d is still made in 3d unless u want to spend 1000 hours on developing each frame and angle)

2d has a few extra constraints that you have to take into consideration.
You can't shovel in hundreds of frames and expect the engine to perform flawlessly.
8 frames for 16 angles for each animation as a low example.
Walk, run, idle, attack, bla, blah, you get the idea.

Btw it doesn't have to be 3d to be 2.5d.
