All my "friends" were anti social twats who cant be bothered to do anything or talk to me, so for the past 2 years i've had no one to talk to. I've never had a girl friend and rarely even found myself in the opportunity to even meet any. And now im in a fucking hateful job with long hours, i feel as if im spending every waking second there and i havent been able to find anything else. All i do is work and breifly go home.
I wish i could get a dog but i cant where i live. I wanted to do volunteer work at animal charities but none or local...

And its been like this for over 2 years of desperately trying to get out of it.

A least you have a job, your own home, and don't need to rely on others for survival. Shut the fuck up. From the information given, you don't have a single good reason for wanting to kill yourself.

It sounds like you need a change.

Move.
Fuck everything and just move somewhere else.

If you don't have the money, then work your ass off with the end goal of being able to move from that place and find a new place to call home.
Do what makes you happy. If working the same boring job isn't good enough, then save up money and quit.

I guarantee you, moving to a new area with different job opportunities and new people will make everything much better. Even if you have to get a restaurant job; You could probably pick up 3 part time jobs to replace the single job you have now.

Ahhh, yeah i guess thats why those in store packages cost hundreds, i assumed it was for one program in my noobishness
And that shouldnt be a problem if i do decide to subscribe fortunate (the only benefit of the job im in at the mo -_-).
Any tips for my actual idea?

Sorry for not giving many tips on Animating.
It's all dead simple.

Start with character in position A, slowly move specified parts until character is in position B, etc.

Gif related, it's one of my 'best' pivot animations.

Just try to work on smoothing. That's the only real thing you'll have trouble with.
It will take tens of frames to make something decent. You'll get better with time.
And Lip-Syncing animations is pretty tough; People normally create templates of character mouths in certain positions sounding out different vowels/ consonants and different combinations and just apply the templates to different frames.

If anything, you could try using Pivot for a while and see what you can make.
Pivot is easy since each item in it is an entity, and instead of re-drawing everything each frame, you move the entities around.

Heh, the in-store packages have the combined cost of the monthly payments.

Not sure what you mean in "if you do decide to subscribe fortunate."

As far as tips go:

Quality over Quantity -- Even if it means pouring 2+ weeks of time into a video. Don't release the video if it isn't 100% perfect.

Do something Different -- If people wanted to watch something like what Markiplier does or something that PewDiePie does, they'd go and watch Markiplied/ PewDiePie.

Short and Sweet and to the point -- No intro longer than 3 seconds; No build up longer than 40 seconds to get to the main content. IE, if you're trying to show a glitch in a video game, just show the few seconds before the glitch and during the glitch. No one will wait 40 seconds for a 2 second glitch.

Quick. Everything in the video Must be Quick -- Same as the one above, but more direct. Example: www.youtube.com/user/CGPGrey

Aaand animating:
Don't be afraid to backtrack and re-work previous frames
Always remember that there will be multiple things going on in any given scene, try not to focus too hard on animating one thing when there's other things to animate in the scene. Hence the "Don't be afraid to backtrack and re-work previous frames" -- Even if you forget to animate a character, you can ALWAYS go back and animate him.
Something must always be moving; Capturing the attention of YouTube is like capturing the attention of a child. Something is always moving on kid's TV shows. Never is the scene still. Even TV shows like Archer do this, although they shift camera angles to compensate for the lack of character animations on the bodies.

When I think of more, I'll post them here

Holy crap thats a lot better than i thought. I dont think i've ever needed to buy a program before but i noticed software in stores which were hundreds of pounds for a program which turned me off.
Could do with photoshop aswell.
I'll give the free trial ago.

#135417 - Nameloc (05/26/2014) [-]
Definitely.
Just note that the Monthly packages include a 1 year commitment, and canceling out means you pay 50% of the remaining payments. (After the first month, that is.)

Personally, I would totally own the $49.99/ month package, but I'm too uncertain about my financial future to go through with such payments.

Here's a list of all of the Adobe packages:

www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/buying-guide.html

The first one, for $49 a month, includes all Adobe programs.
Alternatively there's the $19.99 a month, that allows use for a single program of your choosing. Which can be Flash.

Just note that Adobe's support is piss poor.
I once spent 19+ hours in support for something a YouTube comment helped me remedy.
