Most of my recent work uses Carrara in some way or another, some basic modelling or manipulation of models, animation and rendering. For example the Flea Film uses Carrara Pro 5 and Poser via the Transposer application, it's also been used for making morph targets for the Ring Masters tail coat. Captain Correct has also used Carrara but it may be moved to something like Anime Studio.
The new functionality of Non Linear Animation (NLA) appears for the first time in Carrara 6 so I've been looking at using that for the film and have written a tutorial to get you started.
