Sometimes with this sort of thing it’s simply the lack of knowledge of what to use. The other common issue is how to use it.

I’m very pleased to see Blender 2.6 Essential Training available at Lynda.com as of yesterday.  I consistently recommend Lynda as an excellent resource for learning a wide variety of applications, operating systems, techniques, and methodologies.  My Digital Media students use Blender to create and publish a short animated movie.

My Digital Media students did great with our limited time using Blender and would enjoy this.
