Thanks, the result of 51 years since my first film for money.

I think probably today today today I should make the big decision, today (!), and actually BUY the program.... gads, again, and gulp. :shock:
I just finished up a music certification, it consumed 2 years without end (it seemed), so now it's time for animation to consume my life :-)

Is that the same thing as a 2yr AAS degree - intensive and focused?
Congratulations! and where will you be taking this new expertise?

Yes, pretty much! I focused specifically on film scoring and orchestration... ultimately to be making my own independent films (animated, of course).

Wow I think this is great. The indie films are the best things out there, even if they make it to mainstream - which I hope yours will.

The pen tip "tip" for the Cintiq drag issue from my nephew, who says: "The felt tip insert works the best. You can buy them separately if ebay package doesn’t have them."

I don't know which tip I am using, it's a black one, it is one of the standard tips. It took no time at all to get used to drawing on the slippery surface. A lighter touch helps, too.

To return to the topic of this thread, I recommend reading this article in today;s New York Times:
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/14/arts/ ... ube&st=cse" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It is beginning. Interesting times to be a filmmaker.

I hadn't really noticed how much Youtube changed... I guess it is pretty different. Oddly enough, my son, who is autistic, adjusted very easily and without complaint to the change, and he's not one to typically adjust to changes in things he's used to.

Thanks! It's an iPhone sketch, in Brushes, if I remember. Very freeing, working on something so small. No fussiness.

I didn't notice, either, but thinking along the lines of "interesting times to be a filmmaker" commercialization seems to be the "new" evolutionary imperative.
We, as a species, are, perhaps, doomed to grab a thing that is perfectly fine and wrest every last penny, creative energy and freshness out of it. :?
But we do keep creating new and sometimes wonderful things, as well. 8)
