  1. Holy crap! Thanks everyone for the responses to this, even though this thread is pretty old. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their input. Hopefully, this can help some people out at some point in their careers that might have the same thought process. I guess I'll give an update. I tried the dev life and it was ok but once I got into the day to day, I really missed working in C4d and AE. I found out I liked designing and animation a little more than coding but I did learn Javascript which was actually a nice skill to pick up. So I'm doing more animation again and designing some user interfaces which is a nice change of pace. So being wiser, a little older and a few whiskeys deep. I'm just seeing where this work will go. thanks again
  2. This just sold me on switching over. I've been on the fence trying to justify sticking with Apple but can't do it anymore. Was going to go 5k iMac with eGPU but now, hello custom build.
  3. Thanks for the responses. Chris you nailed it. I'm taking a step back and going to clear my head make the decision I think is right, I still want to do motion graphics but to what extent I guess that's what I need to decide. When you brought up age and end game, those are the two things that have been on my mind a lot and kind of what sparked this thought. I'm turning 30 in a couple months and I'm probably just having a freak out because holy shit it's 30, but I know it's not that big of a deal.
  4. Are you rendering to the same OS? I remember when I was reading around about Net render that going from mac to a windows or vice versa might cause some color difference in the way the algorithm renders out the colors.
  5. Hey guys thanks for the feedback. Lately I've been doing a lot of editing as well so I think that really ads to the dislike at the job. To answer your question oeuf right now I'm prefer web work, just because it's new to me and I'm making a lot more progress and its fresh and I really don't have a any real responsibilities with it just to learn. The standard stuff is what is kind of wearing me down at the ol'job and just seeing friends transition pretty well in there development careers is another thing that has triggered this debate. In my mind interactive designer would probably be perfect do some code and still be able to animate. I'm going to throw a new reel together and see if that triggers the happy back into my life. Thanks again everyone for the responses and checking out my work. Sorry for the rambling.
  6. Hey Everyone, Longtime lurker first time poster. Just recently I've started getting burned out and just feeling stuck at work. I get home and try and force myself to do personal projects and can't stand the glow of my computer screen. I'm having an internal struggle on if this is what I want to keep doing. I came from web dev/flash background and once I learned After Effects it was on but now after about 5 years I'm getting more back into web dev and I'm at the point were I'm trying to decide how to delegate my time. I know if I try to do both they both will suffer and the work won't be good. Just seeing if this has crossed anyones mind and some opinions. here's a link to some of my work just for reference: http://goo.gl/FtzTkc
