Exercising your own brains in optimizing work, per shot, is far less robotic than conforming to a system.Unfortunately, everyone works in their own way and in a production environment, you need consistency. If you don't, chaos is bound to happen when assets move downstream or need revision (by someone else). A good pipeline helps guide the artist, give them clear direction, provide clear information and ensures that their work will play nicely with other departments. The pipeline shouldn't handcuff the artist but empower them ... they don't have to think about naming schemes and directory structure ... just concentrate on "making pretty pictures." :) In the end, this makes the artist more efficient which leads to fewer hours. My two pennies. Cheers, Rob
