Does anyone know which 3D animation software package the futurama art guys (Rough Draft Studios) use?  I'm thinking of buying some 3D software, but want to find the best.  Sounds kinda stupid...but hey...  big grin

Are you ready to spend upwards of $1000?

To clarify for anyone curious, we use Softimage Toonz for 2D ink&paint/composite, and Alias|Wavefront PowerAnimator and Maya for 3D

Because Maya costs a load of cash (even if you're a student), there's a free version of Maya available called "Maya PLE (Personal Learning Edition)" - all the features of full blown Maya, but just with watermarked rendering. Useful if you want to find out how usable a package is before buying it.
