    Pivot Points!



    Huge thanks to Strider for allowing me to continue the whole business! From now on, I shall be responsible of moderating the thread.

    Welcome!
    The whole aim of the Pivot Points business is giving you some extra satisfaction from animating. When you complete an assignment, you will be awarded with the corresponding amount of PP.
    More PP equals bragging rights, so make sure you're at the top of the leaderboard!
    To submit an assignment, simply post your animation in this thread.

    Got complaints, suggestions or simply questions? I'm all ears!




    Update as of 12-Jun-2013:: I'm back into moderating the thread. Sorry for the absence. Hope to see this thread's activity kickstart again.
    -----
    The following assignments have been taken down/balanced due to the Pivot 4 features:
    Skinless - Taken Down
    Next Dimension - Balanced (from 5 PP to 3 PP)
    Sticks Are For Casuals - Balanced (from 5 PP to 3 PP)

    NOTE: Just so I won't spam the thread, from now on I'll post less so often to acknowledge the animators that I have added their points for the submissions. Therefore, check the leaderboard frequently! I shall be updating it as soon as it is humanly possible.




    *Pivot 4 is going to be the default version used by every animator who posts an animation on this thread;
    *ANYONE can participate!
    *It is not allowed to enter the same animation for more than one assignment; if you do, the assignment with the lowest PP reward is selected;
    *Posting old animations is not allowed, nor continuations of old animations;
    *It is generally not allowed to do the same assignment more than once, though there are a few exceptions;
    *You can overwrite an old assignment with a new one, if you feel the new version could earn you extra PP;
    *Quality over quantity!

    I'm sorry, you have already posted this in the previous thread.
    A run loop shouldn't be that hard anyway, so you may consider animating another one.

    But it never got accepted, the thread was locked... Can I still claim originality points?

    If you can only fulfill the assignments once what happens once you complete them all?

    Re: Pivot Points!

    Then you have all the points? Good luck finishing them all, especially when you can't finish multiple in a single animation.

    The whole Pivot Points thingy is still under major development, hence there aren't too many assignments. And since one man can't do it all on his own, there's the "Contributor" assignment.
    In any case, I doubt anyone will ever complete them all.

    Then that's it, you become the undisputed king of Pivot Points, until more challenges arise.
