iClone 3 is a relatively simple-to-use 3D animation program that you can use to create simple 3D films, whether that’s for standalone projects or to add to other video sources.
Pros: 3D animation is tricky stuff, and iClone does a fairly good job of making it as simple as it’s possible to be. The cheaper standard version ($146) has fewer elements for tweaking animations, and a very limited free version is also available.
Cons: There’s only so much complexity you can strip out, and getting things working is still a slow and sometimes tedious process.
Verdict: An interesting creative tool with great possibilities.
