What does a 3D animation cost?

3D animations are popular. And that's not surprising; this modern technology has many advantages over other types of animations.

Thanks to the three-dimensional image, a hyper-realistic animation with many details can be created. However, this also means that developing a 3D animation is a fairly labor-intensive process, which means that the cost is rather higher on average than for other types of animations. Are you thinking about developing a 3D animation? In this article, we discuss what you can expect in terms of costs.

What does the average 3D animation cost?
It’s not possible to give a clear-cut answer to the question of exactly what a 3D animation costs. The price depends on many different factors. However, you can assume that the average cost of developing this type of animation is higher on average than for other types of animation. That's because developing it is a labor-intensive process, which generally takes several hours. On the other hand, the result is also a lot more attractive and more professional, so the animations often pay for themselves quickly. If you want to be sure of exactly what the animations will cost you, it’s a good idea to request a quote. This way you won’t get any surprises and you might be able to compare different agencies with each other. Prices usually start at around €2,500 per video, rising to as much as €10,000 (depending on your specific needs).

Factors that influence the price
Several factors affect the final price. In general, very labor-intensive animations also cost more money, simply because more hours have to be paid for. This means that the length of the video has a major influence on the final price. A 30-second animation movie obviously costs a lot less than a five-minute animation movie. The complexity of the design also influences the price. Complex movies will take more work (and therefore cost more money). The more movement there is in the movie, the higher the price will generally be. And finally, of course, the desired sound influences the price. For example, do you want a professional voice-over? That will also cost extra.

What is a dewatering method? If you think about the words you're reading you might be able to guess what it entails, however you will not have a full understanding of the ins and outs of this technology. This is where the visual impact of a 3D animation is most clear. The extra levels of understanding this creates for your (potential) clients is something that cannot be expressed in monetary terms.

Returns from a 3D animation
Despite the fact that the cost of a 3D animation video is rather higher on average than, for example, a 2D animation video, more and more people are opting for this animation technique. This is because a 3D animation has a high ROI (return on investment). This means that this type of animation video generates a lot of revenue on average. After all, modern technology ensures a realistic and detailed image. It also gives your company a modern, professional look. And you can use the animation video for various purposes: you can share the video on social media, put it in emails, upload it to YouTube and use it as an interactive sales tool. You can also use images from the animation video as individual photos. You can also edit and update an existing video if something needs to be changed. For example, one animation movie can be used in many different ways, so that you get the maximum return from your investment.
