Composer animation - What is too much?

What is to much for Composer to handle?


I am researching animation tools and we have reviewed Composer with the help of our VAR. They animated a machine for us and it looked really good. I understand what Composer is and the documentation portion of the software is something our Automation department would use it for. But I need it for the animation portion.

The ultimate goal is to follow the birth of our part to when its packed up in a box. What we do here at Berry Plastics is make consumer products out of you guessed it "Plastic". We do Bottles, Caps, Containers, Lids, specialty stuff and many other items. I will be putting together an entire plant assembly of a mold machine with a multi-cavity mold, conveyor system, to another process, then off to packaging.


I need to know if Composer is going to be able to handle something of this magnitude?


Using Composer makes it much easier for making the animation, since it brings in SW files natively and that is a huge plus for us and it ignores mates. Otherwise I will have to learn more advanced animation software, which I don't have a problem with, but nothing I have seen supports SW files or if it does it does not import them well.


Thanks in advanced on any help on this.
