    Yes, because strangely enough, we're learning how to use PoV and
associated programs ALL the time - in my experience, a LOT of
experimenting* goes on before I'm even happy with what I've got, and
then of course, you have to think of 'how' you're going to implement
it in your scene.

  *For instance, I've only been using Wings for about a month now, and
my Wings folder is 243Mb's - that's 42 Wings files and other
associated files - and that boils down to 4 images, 2 completed, 2

    You're right of course, and that's also what I've been failing
with. Imagination plays a big part, (and I have a good imagination),
but sometimes you're limited with what you can do in a scene because
of the 'experimenting' that goes on. I have to say though, that I do
like the idea of knowing a topic in advance simply so that you can
'chew' on an idea - if you cock it up - well, that's you're own fault
