    I want to ask you about your opinion in this subject.
    For the last game i developed (A battle-based samurai styled game) I buyed an animation set because i had no idea how to work with 3ds max and other 3d modeling programs and I don't have access to them.
    I had very satisfactional results but i don't know what's best for a indie developer, spent money buying some limited resources to a company, or spent more in software licensess and in learning how to use these programs?

    Greetings
    Pablo "Nefablo"

    (pd. i buyed my assets in a webpage called gamjadoriho.wixsite.com, maybe for some it's useful, they have a good quality-price relation)

    If you need to save money, the best thing is to learn 3d animation yourself or hire someone to do it for you; it is more efficient than buying a specific animation set. But if you don't have time and/or have a lot of money, buy some assets. Though I'd rather go with the other routes.
