For our animations we currently use Blender to make them. Blender is a free software developed by the Blender Foundation and accessible to all.
How long does an animation take?
There is no set time for animations, the duration it takes depends on so many factor such as length, detail required, animation style etc. This mean the time varies between animations. However for comparison purposes, the Joel animation took between 80 - 160 hours to complete over a period of several weeks, while the armor of God animation took 100-200 hours over a period of 1-2 months.
