3ds Max.
That's all I know, when it comes to animating.

3ds Max occasionally messes up the animation. I've got the Maya trial, and it's a breath of fresh air. I'm not sure if there is a .jms exporter for Maya though.

Gmax does not have the physical power to suck.

3ds Max for Halo, but pay.
Gmax, its free, but there are not many tools to be used in animating.
Maya and Blender wont work, because there is no exporting to Halo from those programs.

Actually no.

Max now has softimage CAT which makes it 4 times better at animation than maya.

Get a new computer. ^^
If it can't run Gmax, it can't run anything.

Basically, you want 3ds max 8, that is the best max for halo :)!

And if you can't afford it, your poor, and screwed for the rest of your life....
