 Maybe you gotta buy Maya or Softimage. {Or do it by hand}

 I don't really see it as amateurish. I do see it as different. It is pretty
precise {just like it was when it was in Main Actor}. Maybe it's just that I'm
not used to that sort of thing... I prefer a standard timeline.

} I'm planning on using K-3D & the Gimp to create art for CD covers. :-)

 I'm planning on using a whole bunch of different stuff to do musical
animations. ...Blender for the most part. Probably Flash when it ports...
Maybe Moho in the meantime. I really need a good editor seeing as I
already have enough footage to do probably a hundred hours of video.

 One thng about linux is that it has all sorts of ways to do short
experimentalish stuff. ...That's exactly what I need at this point.
