    While I'm not sure how many python programmers show up here check out the BlODEd thread in the python area for an interesting look at physics animations.

    currently there is no user friendly way to use it but we're working on it.

    some techniques outlined here (that's a XSI book) are also transferrable to blender, e.g animating/deforming via spline, general character sets etc.

    just swap Y and Z.

    Nice links. Looking at the cvs, the current animation refactoring is going to make animating in Blender a lot more easier and powerful.

    Hee hee. I'm taking animation classes from Tony White, the guy who wrote that last book, "The Animator's Workbook". Anyway...

    Muybridge's books are invaluable for animation reference:

    The Human Figure in Motion
    Animals in Motion

    Or the complete three-volume set of his work:
    Muybridge's Complete Human and Animal Locomotion: New Volume 1 (Reprint of original volumes 1-4)
    Muybridge's Complete Human and Animal Locomotion: New Volume 2 (Reprint of original volumes 5-8)
    Muybridge's Complete Human and Animal Locomotion: New Volume 3 (Reprint of original volumes 9-11)

    They're old (late 1800's/early 1900's) but they're still 100% relevant and useful.

    Since applegrew seemed to have trouble, the link to all of comet-cartoons' tutorials is here.

    I've also found a really great list of animation tutorials and resources:
    http://www.carlosbaena.com/anim_material.html

    Edit: Another site: http://www.navone.org/HTML/Links_3D.htm

    Keith Lango released another FREE tutorial

    Yep! Like the title says, so head over http://www.keithlango.com/wordpress/?page_id=281

    About the other tutorials not working, his website has been redisgned since. So maybe the other tutorials are somewhere else on his website.

    I've downloaded/ payed for one of his tutorials. I must say if you have the cash to spare and you are serious about animating, then you SHOULD subscribe to his VTS (or buy individual chapters). Excellent tutorials!
