WebAnimate vs Blender

Hello all,

I’m new to 3D animation, part of a small team trying to product an ‘Indy’ 3D strategy title. I’ve heard good things about WebAnimate but was also considering Blender.

WebAnimate seems to product some high-quality output and has some useful features (auto-retargeting, auto-rigging etc.) but Blender seems to be waaay more popular. Can anyone who has used both give a comparison? What are the advantages of Blender vs. WebAnimate? I don’t really want to learn two tools.
