Not sure where I should post this...
I need to build a couple of little animated movies, to place within real world actors in videos to make complex subjects appear to be simpler than they are. Yeah, I know sounds ridiculous, but that's what I need to do. Using real actors is just not a best fit, because the audience is grade school level, and the content to explain is high school or early college level. Holding viewer interest is important, and by having animation it should make the viewer think... if it's a cartoon I can understand it.
I've been searching the web for animated movie maker software, which is what I think is needed. There are some free online things, but they aren't a best fit because they are too cookie cutter. Also, I'd say most are so simplified they aren't interesting for lengthy presentations.
I may not have made it clear enough. I need to use animated actors in the little skits. I guess I need something that renders pretty well, and is easy to create actors and their movements efficiently. I don't want the complexity of building 3d games. I just need to have a software that lets me take some 3d quality actors and scenery from a library and poke it altogether. Guess I'd also need some ability to either transcribe text to sound or create sound with human voice and dubb it.
Maybe someone could suggest a software.
