software to create the needed animation videos

Hello,

I have a contractor animation project coming up where I need to draw a kiln cross-sectioned at various angles and animate its unique airflow. I have a lot of experience with Flash (mostly the prehistoric MX version from '02) from my medical illustration/animation days, so I'm thinking I should purchase a version of that. Once complete, I would likely have to use conversion software to create the needed animation videos format from the SWF, but it shouldn't be too hard. However, I wanted to ask if anyone recommends alternative animation programs over Flash. I want something that allows traditional frame-by-frame animation; however, I also rely on effects in Flash like shape/motion twening and masking effects that some software may not have.

I believe the client wants the video for his website. Are there other factors I'm not taking into consideration such as narration, resolution, or file formatting?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

All 3d software allows for traditional keyframe animation. You will have more options for camera and exporting.
