Exporting animations to .3ds


Is it possible to export animations to the .3ds format?

I can get blender (2.5) to export the model itself, but the animations are left out.

I need the model and animations in .3ds to create 2d sprites in SpriteForge: http://www.d-grafix.com/?page=spriteforge

I am new here, so I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong forum or if it has already been covered in another post (could’nt find any).
