    Hi guys,

    Long time no see, hope you're all well. I run a little gaming website and I want to create an animated logo to add to the start of our YouTube videos. I don't want to spend much on software (preferably freeware) but most importantly I want something that isn't going to take me 6 months to get my head around. Can anyone suggest and good 3d animation software that would help me create some kind of animated logo (including text)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Perris,

    Thanks for posting. I looked into SketchUp but as far as I could see it was just for static 3D images, mainly of buildings and plans. I'll look into it again now though and see if I can use it.

    I guess you could do panels and then run them in frames

    or, do two or three images and then run the morph bringing them together, though I don't know of a free morphing program

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for the delayed response. I'm not sure if a GIF animator is quite as advanced as I need but I'll give it a go :)
