So yeah, those are a few. The more expensive ones are probably not up your alley, but Anime and Anime Pro sound like a good place to look. It's made by the same people who made ArtRage and Poser, so they're pretty reputable. Another interesting product of theirs is Manga Studio
, but that's unrelated. All the same, though, I haven't tried it myself. I'm no good with animation, or at least, I'm not good at it right now. I'm intrigued by Anime, though, since it seems like it has a lot of features that make it easy to get into (skeleton-based animation being a big one).
