Computer-Based Animation Software

These are a limited number of computer-based animation software programs available for developing 3D animated videos. Animation software running locally is an alternative to using animation creation websites, and is generally more powerful than web-based animation development platforms. Two programs are featured on this page.

  • Blender.org – Free open-source multi-platform high-definition 3D animation development platform for Windows, Apple, Linux. Creates feature film quality animation with higher detail.
  • Movizu.com – Free Windows-based software for creating 3D animated videos. Creates cartoon-like videos that are similar to video game quality graphics.
