I was wondering what yours is? I am almost hitting 6 months now. After a 7 year nonstop run, i decided to try some other directions and just taking a break from it all.

Is this something i am not alone in? Did some of you also stopped with it for a while? Would love to hear that i am not the only one :D

And yeah i know, 6 months is more then a break. But i have no plans of stopping with motion design. I just hit a brick wall that i can’t seem to break. Creative and inspirationwise.

I still have a break now for 5 1/2 months, because I have to work for school.

Motion graphics and After Effects are not necessarily synonymous.

A break is a good thing. Not sure the longest break I’ve taken from AE. A good few months, I’d guess.

A week on Christmas -> New Year. I was in vacation trip in Germany :) This was a biggest pause in 2 years I think!

Usually I’m taking a break from After Effects only while sleeping :D

Breaks! us buyers cannot take breaks as we are too busy taking notes and adding new and exciting projects to our favorites with the view of then potentially purchasing them later.

cannot even imagine going back 10 pages or so, to catch up with projects we may have missed. Far too busy for that!

but holidays and time away from the computer are an exception!
