I’ve been wanting to learn 3D animation for over a decade, but never took the plunge. I’ve thought about using Blender with free tutorials, then thought about Animation Mentot that I see advertised all the time, but it was pricey.
One thing that has always stopped me from going through with learning the process is that I hear rendering 3D animations take forever. That something like a thirty second animated video could take a month to render. But then video games render there graphics on the fly, from what I understand.
What’s the truth about this? I understand it’s going to vary greatly from Pixar level animation to a more basic student video, but is there some sort of ballpark understanding of how it works that you guys can tell me.
I really want to learn it, I have such a passion to create things, but I’m definitely not patient!
Thank you in advance!
