I've created a card game and wanted to make a video tutorial.

I have all the card images ready (as PDFs, which I can easily convert), and wanted to know what the best software would be to do this?

I don't need any people in the animation, just a table, cards, and maybe text but I can add that later.

It needs to be :

  • Windows 10 compatible
  • Free
  • Easy to learn
  • Publishable to video

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I thought Blender may be good but I'm not sure.

Blender is probably the best. Free, and it competes with top tier software like 3DS Max and Maya.

But if you are looking for an alternative, you could try Unity or Unreal Engine. While they are game engines at heart, they do provide a few animating toolset. Coupled with a physics engine, maybe they might be more suited to your use case.
