How to animate model with element 3D(After Effect)

I have Video Copliot's elemet 3D plug-in with Jetstrike pack. I never learned 3D modeling.
I use element 3D for importing 3D models easily, but I thought it's impossible to apply complex animation on models with element 3D. When I need little animation on model, I use group function of element 3D to detach moving parts from model, and rotate or move each group separately. This method has limit.

Recently I saw video using element 3D. He said he used 3d max to make animation, and used element 3D to import it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBhv89o2980
So what I want to know is how to animate model with element 3D or import animation with element 3D.

I mean, when I import 3D models on video(ordinary live video or motion graphic video whatever) with after effect, I use element 3D for efficient but it's hard to animate models with this plug in.

I just found that Element 3D is possible to import obj Sequence file :O
So there was no actual 3D animation function on element 3D... but can import animation by importing obj sequence file....
Anyway thanks for comment. I never heard about free Blender, I will check it.

I thought Element 3D can't animate 3D models by it self, and that was true, but can import animation by importing obj sequence file from 3dmax
