Hi Rodney and all.
I have been a user since the software was called apprentice and ran only on amigas. I have been banging around the lists a good while too.
Currently I am an animation professional working in the L.A. area. I have dabbled in and played with Animation:Master over the years and had a lot of fun and now I think it would be good to really get a mastery of 3d animation. To that end I am going through TAoA:M and then Boot Camp.
It's been slow going but I am restructuring my time use and should see better results. I would like to be completed by the end of the year.
Yours in 3D,
