    A little theory

    I just thought, a lot of people here when animating get an issue with inspiration, but I just had the idea of if we forced our selves into a routine with pivot, we wouldn't need inspiration. People who animate and use CAD as a job don't get inspiration every day of their work, they have a task and they do it.

    For example, you are doing really well with your grades, but you don't get "inspired" to get a really good GCSE level do you? you just needed to try hard. Since you are FORCED to study in school, and many do so well, maybe if we FORCED our selves into a routine with pivot, the same thing could happen, anyone else think this is a good idea? Or am I making stuff up that makes no sense?

    The thing is that it's not our job.

    The thing about pivot is if you have to force yourself to do it, it's no longer enjoyable.

    Pivot isn't a career; it's a hobby.

    Obviously, it would be depressing to say to yourself 'Right 5 o'clock now I have to [s:88jt1zzr]revise[/s:88jt1zzr] do pivot'

    But if you didn't know what to do or had no inspiration, it could be fun/boredom busting to do an animation that someone tells you to do if you wanted to animate.

    Re: A little theory

    I disagree, there were plenty of times I was inspired to study throughout high school, especially in my last year. What inspired me was having the choice of what I want to do in the future, and how my life is going to pan out if I study.
    If that doesn't inspire you to study then I don't know what will.

    And like Mufasa said, forcing yourself to animate takes the fun out of it. Often I reminisce about the days when an idea would pop into my head and I'd animate it, albeit I was younger, and lowest of low beginners at the time, but pivot was fun. I found once I moved up the ranks, it became a chore, to try and out do my last animation and keep up the level that was now "required" of me.

    Not forcing yourself to animate, but wanting to animate but having no ideas/inspiration is annoying, so having someone tell what to animate, not when, could be OK. A bit like Elmo's idea thread.

    Not everyone is FORCED to study :|
    Like blot said, you can get inspired by thinking of your future.

    I know, but I'm talking about pivot, not study.
