 How much does 3D cost? How much will it cost?
Good question. As you can imagine, the answer is “it depends”.

There are many, many factors that affect the final price of a 3D Animation, 2D to 3D Conversion or 3D Architectural Rendering. Some of these factors include:

  • Timeline and Deadline
  • Variety and Complexity of processes
  • Types of Illustrations required

So, until we have more information about your project it’s pretty difficult to come up with even a “rough estimate” cost.


 How much does 3D cost? What’s your hourly rate
3D Film Connection doesn’t normally work on an hourly basis. We prefer to provide a firm, fixed-price quote for your project. Each project typically involves five or more illustrators, editors, stereo engineers, and managers, and each has a different “hourly rate”. If you have a compelling reason to hire us to work on an hourly basis, we will definitely listen and consider your project.


 How much does 3D cost? How does the process work?
To get started, we typically create a rough outline for the project and, with input from the client, establish an estimated quote. If the client is satisfied with the estimated quote, 3D Film Connection’s management calculates the labor required from the illustrators, editors, stereo engineers, and managers to complete the 3D illustration or conversion. The labor requirement is combined with any necessary travel, software, and hardware costs required and based on this information we determine a final price.


 How much does 3D cost? What does it take to get started?
Usually our clients issue a standard purchase order. If you prefer, we have a standard client agreement to use instead.


 How much does 3D cost? How long will it take?
Much like the price, schedule is dependent on many factors. We will do our best to meet your schedule within the limitations of our resources. One factor that often impacts our schedules is customer reviews. You can help us deliver the final product on a timely basis if you review drafts and return any revisions promptly and succinctly.


 How much does 3D cost? What about travel?
Typically our quote will include the cost of one or two trips to a client’s facilities for collection of source data, in-process reviews, etc.


 How much does 3D cost? What sort of software do you use?
We use a wide variety of software within the professional Adobe and Autodesk collections as well as our own proprietary software to remain on the absolute forefront of 3D technological abilities. If  your request requires specific software it must be purchased to fulfill the work order.
