Animating - is it hard?

I’m kinda new to blender, I’ve been building some basic things. But I really wanna learn animating. I know flash pretty well. Is this like way harder? Does somone know somwhere that has a basic animation tutorial of just how to get started? That would be very cool. Thanx

Animating in 3d is very different from animating in Flash.
In flash you have to build the character and seperate it into different elements and animate them seperately.
In 3d you have to build the character (model it), build a rig for it ( a skeleton), and skin it ( attatch the model to the skeleton).

Enough of the talk, here is a tutorial that can help you get started:

I hope it helps.
