I am asking around for advices as I am quite lost in this situation of mine. I am working in a CG industry where I first started out as a Roto Artist.
After my first annual review, I was given the opportunity to work as a JuniorTechnical Artist (basically someone who troubleshoots and maintain all the other tools used in Maya, Nuke etc..), as I told them (my bosses) that I have an interest in the scripting since my real interests lies either in Rigging or in those FX stuff (in which both requires the knowledge of knowing Python/Mel)
FYI, my current boss is actually from the RnD dept and he is currently acting in place as our Dept Head until a new replacement comes in...
Just to let you all know, (I did told my bosses too) my last coding background is like 4 years ago in C++ (basic to above average skill and truth to be told, I have almost forgotten it)
And hence, after working for about 6 months now, I am pretty lost as I feel that I am not really up to the position. Reason being that I am struggling with Python and Mel, not to mention that as my company are using their own 'modules' to code and used in softwares. Also the very fact that whenever I am tasked to troubleshoot a problem, I could hardly manage and I would have to ask my boss
So my question would be: Is it a wise idea for me to pop this question telling them I am not suitable for it, or shall I wait for my coming annual review which is due in end Nov/Dec? And if I am telling them this early, will it be a bad impression?
