what do you mean web animation?

Most movement you see on the web is either built with javascript or Flash. If you use javascript you don't need a special program. Flash (versions long before 10) is animation/interactivity software.

If your looking for movie style animation (embedded video) most people are using After Effects or something similar.

GIMP or Photoshop are really only capable of creating animated image sequences and real animation tools have come a very long way from that.

To answer your question there's usually a right tool for every job. I frequently use some combination of After Effects, Flash and Javascript.

For a simple web animation for a site you can use Photoshop + Flash. Adobe Creative suite could fulfill the creativity that you want for your site.

For professional animation you need maya, 3d max or after effects [ with plug-ins]

Simple gif animations can be created using the programs you mentioned, but they are only gif and a bit past it

I respectfully disagree. In the ancient times professional animation was done on paper and/or transparencies, meaning you can use any drawing app to create professional animations i.e.; Photoshop, Illustrator, ImageReady, Flash, Gimp, etc. You don't necessarily have to have a 3D app. Todays software just make work flow easier (matter of opinion) and saves time by removing repetitive processes. With that being said, I use Illustrator, Flash, and After Effects, and occasionally, papyrus, lol.

I like 3ds 2009 it works nicely and gives you a lot of formats to save your animations to, including gif
