    Pivot Grading System

    The purpose of this thread is because, all the nubs are saying stuff like you are low beginner, to a med inter. So yes they must learn. This is at SPP. I think it should be here too. Note, I thought of every word here. So those from SPP, please don't be like "OMGAH JOO STOLEZ THAT!!1!!"

    The grading system is also known as the "Rank System," all it does is tell what you are. There are four main ranks, five including nubs. In order from worst to greatest it's: Nubs, Beginner, Intermediate, Veteran, and Elite. More information is below.

    Sub-Categories
    The sub-categories are:
    -Nubs
    -Beginner
    H-Low-Beginner
    H-Med-Beginner
    H-High-Beginner
    H-Borderline-Inter
    -Intermediate
    H-Low-Inter
    H-Med-Inter
    H-High-Inter
    H-Borderline-Vet
    -Veteran
    -Elite
    These are really just checkpoints. They are non-purposeful otherwise. Don't ask if you are "med-beginner" yet. Those threads get annoying. Also another thing about these sub-categories, is that veterans and elites don't have them. Don't ask why.


    .:Beginners:.
    -They have major to minor choppiness.
    -Starting to grasp the basics.
    -Learning basic effects
    -Generally very short animations.
    -Physics are like the moon or like some place with a lot of gravity.
    -If they have backgrounds it is usually not moved and very simple.
    -Note since this is beginner you should probably post in the beginners section..

    .:Intermediate:.
    -These are the people with almost no choppiness in their animations.
    -They have the basics down.
    -These guys/girls have a good grasp at basic effects and are starting to work on harder effects and good particles.
    -Almost perfect physics.
    -Animations vary in length from long to short.
    -Animations with many backgrounds. The backgrounds don't always flow with each other.

    .:Veteran:.
    -Practically smooth as a babys ass with a little bump here or there on occasion.
    -Long animations with a story and some short tests.
    -Physics that match what they are trying to animate perfectly.
    -Perfectly eased movements.
    -Very excellent grasp at effects, and are starting elaborate effects.
    -Moving more elaborate backgrounds more often to meet the animations needs.

    .:Elite:.
    -The best of the best. Not many can challenge them.
    -They have perfect stories to follow up flawless animations.
    -Perfect physics, effects, and movements.
    -Perfect flow of backgrounds, they always match with the animation.

    Beware
    At this "level" of animating other Elites will nitpick all flaws in the animation. Even if it was just something so minor it was almost invisible on the first five times watching the animation. The Elite compete to be the best in the world.

    Sticky this plox?

    Seems pretty pointless to me, most people know what rank they are and why. Plus, staff decides who is moved up and we already know what rank should do what, and that isnt bound to these rules.

    Quite a bit of time was put into this.
    It's ok, not pointless. Might help people realise what the need to move up.
    CHEEZ IS COOL

    I think that this tutorial is incorrect, especially in the Intermediate section. as you said that Intermediates have the basic effects down, and almost perfect physics? Well I'm a Veteran, I'm still trying to learn the basic effects, and I'm still working on perfecting my physics. Intermediates still have choppy animating problems, and the background is DEFINITELY wrong, I almost never use backgrounds, except the special occasions like a DD collaboration, or an important competition.

    Veterans:
    "-Practically smooth as a babys ass with a little bump here or there on occasion."
    I can agree on you with that one.

    "-Long animations with a story and some short tests."
    Not really, I normally do average length animations with 100-300 frames, thats not long.

    "-Physics that match what they are trying to animate perfectly."
    That can be true at occasional points, but it's never always.

    "-Perfectly eased movements."
    I 90% agree with you on that one.

    "-Very excellent grasp at effects, and are starting elaborate effects."
    I do not agree with you here, I can't do effects, and only a few is able to grasp it as you're saying.

    "-Moving more elaborate backgrounds more often to meet the animations needs."
    I also disagree with you here, only a few has trained themselves in backgrounds.


    As you see, a lot of what you're saying is wrong, I only agree with you on the Beginner and Elite part.

    Basically, I don't think people that is Intermediate or lower should make tutorials on how Elites and Veterans animate, and how to access that particular area.


    Well, good try though =P

    Like what Pheonix said, I also don't think this tutorial is right.. Pheonix gave all the examples on what's wrong so I'll just say I'd give this tutorial a 7/10, helpful to very few people. A little helpful to me on what I need to improve on though..

    If what you said about inters is true, then I must be inter.

    Yes, I believe you are Intermediate.
