help designing 3D animated video

Hello,

I am a beginner,how long would it take to do a 30 second animation vs a person that knows what they are doing?

I know there are a lot of things that will depend on the timeline of doing a 30 second animation like the amount of detail that is in the animation but just wanted to get an idea so I know what I’m up against. I went through many resources and also checked 3d animation video but not getting any idea .

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

  1. What type of animation are you talking about? This is a robotics forum, so I’m going to assume you have CAD of a vex robot and wish to animate it.
  2. This is not an easy task. If you already have CAD of a vex robot, you must import the CAD file into an animating program like maya or 3DS Max. Then, you need to add rigging and animate it, which is not super easy.

If you want to make an animation from scratch, Cinema4D is pretty easy and quick to use, especially for simple animations. If you have CAD experience, it makes it even easier.
