2. Settle with teams rather than individual freelancers
Nowadays, it’s fairly common to come across freelance 3D artists who offer 3D rendering services to small and medium businesses. Although their services are more affordable most of the time, you can expect several risks compared to working with 3D studios.
In some cases, they may suddenly disappear while working on your project—and so will your money and time.
This only means receiving an unfinished project, which could be quite disastrous for your business.
Moreover, most of the freelance 3D artists are newbies who aim to obtain experience and grow their portfolio by offering 3D services at very cheap rates.
On the other hand, 3D teams are a lot more experienced. Also, they’re willing to work with you on a long-term basis.
Working with freelance 3D artists runs the risk of your project being abandoned halfway. Since they are self-motivated and work without any supervision, there might be instances where they stop working simply because they don’t have the motivation to proceed.
Stronger Rendering Power: Lastly, teams in a 3D architectural rendering studio have access to stronger rendering power. This allows them to render large files in just a few hours compared to a freelancer who will often take a few days to complete the same type of work. Render farms are quite expensive and are only available in successful 3D studios.
For example, we at Faraday3D invested around $50,000 for a local render farm, something which an individual freelancer won’t be able to afford. Since 3D studios have access to larger resources and more powerful systems, not to mention they have a wider variety of software licenses and skilled artists, they will be able to provide you with more possibilities for your 3D project.
