     Yes, I did. ;)  There must be some inherent coders' problem with doing 
it the other way around, because believe me, if Colin could, he would.

    But, it's still two months. Basically, it's just a matter of getting 
used to it. As I said, I have no problem with this system because if 
everyone works like me, (and I'm sure they do), then not a lot of work is 
done in those first two weeks anyway. Yes, experimenting, a little modelling 
here and there, checking what type of lights you might need or want, setting 
up a story-line, etc., goes on, I'm sure. But this need not hinder your 
present project, and in some cases it may even help your present project 
because you may discover that a different lighting set-up is better than the 
one you presently have for example.

   And then, when you have uploaded your work, you have all the time in the 
world to comment and vote on ALL images and animations, producing a much 
fairer result.

     Thank you Markus. :)
