    In 2d or 3d? If your looking for 3d animation tools then have look at these:

    low to mid range budget:

    Bryce 3d - corel.com
    Truespace - caligari.com

    Big budget:Lightwave 3d - newtek.com
    Maya - aliaswavefront.com/
    3d max - discreet.com/

    it is by far , the BEST . But it is also by far one of the most expensive and also requires you to have other 3D applications or ideas about them beforehand . Flash and 3D Max combined and you have a by-product in SWIFT 3D

    Oh there's also Alex for interactive web 3d stuff. Computer Arts recently had Alex 1.0 for free on their november cover cd.

    I might even do some simple stuff on it this month to see how it goes.

    from what i can tell it is. But you can also use Metaballs, which are pretty cool, but wierd.

    With Bryce you should be able to create your worlds, building tanks and planes but it isn't the best way of creating complex characters. An easy solution would be to get yourself Poser and then integrate your poser characters into bryce. This combo can be very effective if you put a bit of effort into it.

    Poser is up to version 5 now and that version includes cloth and hair effects but if your on a tight budget then version 3 or 4 will also do.
