So I've just kicked off a job that's been a bit of a struggle to do in the deadline (really satisfying, very happy stuff, re-creating Robert Hooke's notebooks from when he was secretary of the Royal Society).

Bopped F10, opened a very well deserved beer, and suddenly I've realised that I've been running on adrenaline and caffeine for a fortnight, haven't had a weekend in that time, and am blimmin' knackered.

Does anyone else experience this sag-and-flop when the render's started and there's nothing else to do?

Not quite... only when the job is _really_ out of the door... I've had too much sh*t happen after the F10 to be able to relax ;)

It looks like this year I just stumbled right into the next job after the F10, no break at all...

Cheers,
Mike

Been that way here, too. Bloody marvellous! :D

Sometimes I get that way after completing big projects (in anything). Its why I have so many hobbies.

On an unrelated note: Bog, I like the new avatar

Yes, it's like nothing I've ever seen before.

Ditto! Still recognizable, but very different!

You smell that.... that smelled like sarcasm. :devil:


For me, it is a love/hate relationship with F10. Love when I am finally finished with a scene. Hate to wait 15 hours for a 300-frame render. :thumbsdow

(At first, I thought your post was referring to having postpartum* depression after modeling a certain fighter aircraft - heh)


EDIT: Ya, postpartum… We all know that pushing out a 3D model is similar to birthing a baby.

I'm nothing if not original.

*BAMF*

Oh, bugger.

No sense in changing once you've reached perfection.

Actually, I'm pretty happy with this:

Nooooo,borkus, that's the writings of a chap in 1678. It's not a font. Though maybe it should be.

Most of the time there's too much to do after f10. Comp'ing it all together, cutting, encoding and uploading or burning and sending it via mail.
The relief sets in with the upload or with the sent dvd. I once worked from Monday to Friday and only slept 5 hours in that time. hmm..I dunno how often I took a nap during f9, but it was not more than 5 hours real laying-in-bed-sleep.
Like most of you I've seen my part of f10 aftermath... things can really go ugly if your deadline is at the frontdoor and the last renderjob was a result of a dizzy mind that forgot a checkbox and went to bed... hehe
