Ito lang sa akin, wag nyo na sana ipadama sa iba ang mga nararamdaman nyo. wag nyo din sana sisihin ang iba sa kalagayan nyo. you make your own decisions like I make mine. Kung successful ka man, good for you. at kung hindi na man, make it work. Lalo na if you are able and still strong. May bukas pa.

yun nga master cloud alangan ako lagi sa output na gagawin ko dahil mababa lagi presyo , kaya pinapakita ko talaga sa kanila kung ano itsura ng ganitong presyo ,before i proceed ,to be safe always and also to protect my name as a visualizer ,pero yun nga dahil sa passion natin sometimes di talaga maiwasan na napapaganda lalo na pag maliit lng na 3d job na kaya lng paikutin ng quad ko ...im enhancing my animation skills ryt now para sumabak na naman sa ibang market but i dont know whats the current pricing pa .. currently making a render farm for animation purposes ... sasabak na rin kami sa animation..

May nagpagawa sa akin ng complete set of drawings..CE siya, kahit alam natin na bawal na yun dahil nga sa bagong batas, wala din tayong choice, kelangan ko ng pera, sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, papatulan mo na kahit ano. Ni design fee wala akong nasingil, hanggang per page lang sa drawings, para lang akong ginamit para makagawa ng matinong design si client...pero, tagutom ngayon, kung di mo kukunin ang mga ganyan, wala ka na talagang kakainin.

Minsan frustrating din na tayong mga Pilipino hindi makasunod sa mga batas natin ng tama eh...

kaya, as long as hinahayaan lang natin yan, lahat ng professionals sa atin kawawa, mapa doctor pa man or lawyer yan, kaso at least sa kanila, di madaling magpeke ang abogado at doctor. ang madali ay yung may magkunyaring electrical engineer siya, yun pala, eletrician lang pala..or CE siya, yun pala, CE grad lang na nagdedesign din.

Kaya bukas, ilalagay ko na din sa calling card ko na structural designer din ako, at pumipirma ng structural with STAAD ng 25 storeys na bldg...ganyanan naman sa pilipinas eh..nyahahahahaha.... :evil:

Pero, naiintindihan ko din ang mga kasama nating engineer, kasi, ilan lang ba nagpapagawa ng kalsada, hindi araw-araw may tinatayong tulay sa Pilipinas, at para ka maging elligible na maging structural engineer, mag aaral ka pa ulit ng masters, kasi pag graduate ka lang ng 5 yrs, general engineering lang ang pwede sa yo.

Ewan ko lang kung nasusunod ito, baka meron din sa mga kabaro nila na nag-aapakan din ng paa ng kapwa nila CE, kahit di yung isang tao pwedeng mag sign sa ganitong docs sa structural ginagawa din. Kung ito nasusunod ng maayos, ibig sabihin, kawawa nga naman si arkitek...

Ang best option for those architects dabbling in 3d, or design is to move away from architecture, and probably try something else, like animation, be it character or archivz, or learn visual effects...yan ang ginagawa ko ngayon, and once makuha ko ito, iiwan ko na ang archi-field, kasi hindi level ang playing field sa construction industry kung dito ka lang sa Pilipinas.

You will have to deal with the masons, carpenters, contractors(na minsan criminology graduate pa), and even the architecture graduates, who also do your thing, because even though there are laws, this stupid country with stupid leaders, and with people comprising of 80% law violators, cannot impose or even properly regulate the different professional practices that we have.

balik sa usapan:

For complete set of drawings, madalas mangyari ngayon per page na, pinakamataas na nasisingil ko is 1,000 per page. As i've said, I am doing my darn best to uphold my profession, but the problem is, the client will force you to scrap provision after provision from your basic fee, just so the client can get your services at a much lower price.

Most Pinoys probably says "aanhin ko pa ang pagiging matapat at masunurin sa batas, kung gutom naman pamilya ko"....

I guess, as long as most of us are not well provided, as long as the way of living in this country is difficult, these scenarios shall never change.

As for me, ok lang...wala naman akong pinapakain, i rest my case here...if i am to gauge my race with how law abiding are we.

Sometimes, it makes me feel bad to be Filipino.

bokkins wrote:ito lang ang opinion ko sa 1,500 na yan.

a regular employee is getting 8,000 per month. that means 400 a day @20 days/mo. so 50 pesos per hour @ 8 hrs/day.

lets say gumawa sya sa office ng 3 hours. 150 lang yun.

gumawa sya ng freelance na 3 hours, 1,500 na yun. Sulit di ba. Murang mura nga. pro sulit na para sa isang regular employee na nangarap kumita ng mas malaki.

Kung sa client naman, sulit din, lalo na pag di naman gaanong mapili ang client. kasi overhead din yan eh.

Dyan na papasok ngayon kung san gagamitin ng client at kung may budget ba or kung pang marketing ba. So madami talagang pwede maging cost ang isang 3d. At dahil sa competition like any other business, bumababa tlaga ang presyo over the years. Law of supply and demand. Smile

Sir boks. Rebut lang ako sa statement mo.

1. Very rare ang 3 hours na final ang output. With revisions and all, that translates to about 1 view per day. Entonses, P400/view. Mas mahal, pag the next day me irerevise pa.

2. Most likely itong 3 hours na to, me mga preset models that shouldve been purchased (evermotion, whatever). So me unit cost yan. Pero very minimal so pwede natin i ignore.

3. Sa office, hindi ang empleyado ang nagbabayad ng rental, electricity at kung anu ano pang overhead to keep the business running. In my experience running a business in Singapore, 30% of a person's wage is spent on all these. So for a person who earns P8000 x 0.30 = me additional na P2400 na cost. This means in one month the company actually spends P8k (his salary) and P2.4k (his OH factor) = P10.4k. So by now - P65 / hour na siya. P520 / image na.

4. It never happens in a design office, unless mass production oriented company kayo (like a 3d viz co), na nonstop ang mga renderings na pinapagawa. There will be times na nakatambay lang ang mga yan.

I am not about to say P1500 is way low. Based on this - it seems like mas mataas pa rin ang P1500 / image compared to roughly P520-600 / image sa office.

Pero eto mga drawbacks:

1. Freelance is supposed to be higher simply because after office hours are like OT hours.. 1.5 dapat ang value. Eh since gabi or magdamag lang natin ginagawa ang freelance.. that means ang value of freelance work is close to P520x1.5 = P780.

2. Ang regular work is cheaper because me premiums involved na di natin kinoconsider - security is one, insurances, and other benefits like bonuses.

3. If the argument is a person earning P8k / month to a P1.5k / freelance image, then yes, IMMHO, I suppose pwede. Pano kung mga masters yan kagaya nina .... na kumikita ng P35k / month? This means:

P35k basic salary
P10.5k OH
=
P45.5k / 20 / 8 = P285 / hour x 8 hours = P2275 / image.

So - the price really depends on the skill and experience ng freelancer. P1500 is not bad - kung beginner ka pa or if you are doing this freelance thing fulltime. At that rate you will still earn more than working fulltime - imagine doing 20 x 1.5k images a month, P30k na un. Question is - ganun pa rin ba kadami ang ngpapagawa?

Now for someone like ... na super duper master renderer na, malaki pa sahod, eh lugi ka talaga sa P1500/image. Salamat na lang sasabihin niya sa cliente, irerecommend na lang kita ng iba. Pero for him - to do it at that price, is a waste of time, mas mabuti pa itulog na lang niya tutal kumikita naman siya ng P35k pesoses on his regular job.

We cannot control this pricing situation because in the first place, wala naman regulations since di naman considered na "profession" ang 3d / CG on its own - by that I mean wala pang professional regulation from the government na involved. And even if there was, look at architecture - ilang beses nang pinagpipilitan ng mga professors natin na "hoy, pag naging arkitekto na kayo, dapat 10% ng contract cost dapat ang fee ng architect" - eh wala rin, sila pa ang namimigay ng design nila for much less, and even for free in exchange for kickbacks from the contractors. (bato bato sa langit tamaan wag magalit)

Ito lang naman ang observation ko master Boks.

(To be continued. yosi lang muna ako, then sasagutin ko si master cloud.)

true. and consistency rin matters. di pwedeng pangit ung ibang renders mo kahit sa mga kuripot na cliente. that's a good practice - professionalism ang tawag jan buttrock

i underwent the same routine when i was in manila and when i was young(er). syempre atat magrender ng magrender, kahit pang jollibee lang kinikita, basta ung 3d mailabas lang, either for practice's sake, portfolio building, whatever. in the end ang value naman ng mga pinaghirapan sa dulo na minsan mararamdaman (wow that rhymes). buttrock

pero syempre dahil wais na tayo ng konti - ul get to be more discerning with who you work with. but yes, i admit this is only true because, like most OFWs, mejo mataas ng konti ang kinikita therefore, di na gano kelangan mag sideline/tabi. ginagawa lang yan para me extra pera pambili ng chogokin or lenses. (kaya ung kababayan natin sa japan bili lang ng bili ng pokemon eh.) mahirap sa atin, minsan ung freelance work nagiging basis for survival and that's when prices really go down kasi wala tayong choice.. survival mode na eh. well master cloud, like the rest of the guys here, i admire you for keeping ur feet firm on the ground and still maintaining that standard of the product. saka kung ang asawa mo ba naman eh kamukha niyang si sassy girl sa avatar mo, ok lang kumayod ng kumayod. Very Happy

btt: i mean most of us na nakaswerte't nakapagtrabaho sa labas would really be surprised at the rate. for the record - dito sa singapore ang isang view (a few years back) nasa S$250-300 (fr interior - exterior) and that's x 32 = P8k minimum! pero ika nga ni master boks - law of supply and demand - meron na dito na sumisingil na lang ng S$100/view = mapa interior man or exterior. dati chinese and indians lang ngayon pati thais and even filipinos are doing so. me ngkwento pa sa kin na pati taxi driver daw sa shanghai or shenzhen ba un.. eh me portfolio ang walanghiya, ng o offer ng 3d rendering sa mga pasahero.

pag ganito ang trend, soon matitigil na ang pagkolekta ng mga kababayan natin ng mga latest lenses at action figure toys. magiging kuntento na lang tayo manood ng wowowee instead of doing a sideline at that rate. duamdami mga renderer eh, konti naman projects - me mini 3D recession na mangyayari. pasalamat tayo at me alex roman na nag push ng standards. ngmukha tuloy tae ang mga ginagawa natin at sinasabi niya siguro sa cliente, "if you want this style of animation, you gotta pay up" sabay irap. so at least ang labanan ulit, pagandahan naman.

sa mga nasa pinas i guess it's really the sad reality. para tuloy nababalewala ang profession natin as an architect - 5 years natin binuno un (7 years for me, bulakbol eh) pero unlike mga kabatch natin na bankers, lawyers, engineers, etcetera - halos di rin sulit ung kinikita. me joke nga kami sa batch - wag mag architect dahil yan ang last na magpapatyo ng bahay - dahil sa grupo, kikita lang daw ang architect pag nagpatayo na ng bahay ang mga kabarkada niya.

which is quite true - our profession is the last to enjoy economic highs, and the first to feel economic lows.

anyway nadidigress na ko sa topic. my only point is - hmm wala, ngkwkwento lang hehe.

if you cant earn much from what you do, at least enjoy it.

nasa paligid ako ng mga chines dito sa amin where business is strictly for business kaya ako tuloy naging isip tsinoy na rin , most of my works really depends on the price pwera lng kung pinoy ang client thats why i do papogi points kahit barat kadalasan ,di ko kaya ginagawa ni master cloud ...i salute to the man!ako? just as mushroom said "give them what you are paid", well i can still do that here sa area ko... but sad to say jan sa area ni master cloud dami na talaga and di pa nya kilala ang iba ..dito sa min kilala ko halos lahat ,kaya nakokontrol pa presyo namin..may naririnig ako na bumababa sa amin , pinagsasabihan ko agad ...

thnks mushroom for your share ...

kahit sana dito sa cgp where halos ng mga cg "tirador"ng pinas ay andito ma regulate natin ang presyo or can we do something as members? before lumala pa ng husto ang crisis ... di na lng natin napapansin affected tayo lahat dito..mabilis ang communication sa net ... Very Happy

For sir Bokkins; the situation warranted that I illustrate the disparity of life here & of the life outside pinas. I only did so because the comment was made from a member who lives & works outside pinas. That is the only reason why I did so. And why the sidelines / lenses were brought up. To serve as points of comparison. Hell if I were working abroad & had the money I'd be riding a Yamaha 2010 VMax; not that my souped up 190cc Yamaha Mio isnt any good. But I wouldnt be scolding my fellow pinoys to shape up to save the industry if I myself wasnt doing anything but yakkety-yak. If the comment was made by one who resided here I would have just shut my trap. Personally I have never blamed anyone for my lot in life But when someone blames me for something that is not solely my fault you bet your ass I'll be reacting. When you get to my age & realize its always gonna be a crappy world youll see it through my myopic vision. If we don't tell others how we feel about the industry paano magkakaalaman nyan. It's gonna stay rotten.

For masteridol Celes; nahilo ako sa math but I commend you for staying objective & still nailing the proverbial nail on the head. You've covered all grounds extensively except for one thing; my wife doesn't look like my avatar, she looks like Jaclyn Jose. My girlfriend looks like my avatar though. Just kiddin folks lest i rile up the prudes.


Para sa heneral; you're lucky controlado mo grupo mo. Lipat kaya ako dyan. Dito josmioporsantoquebarbaridad laksa laksa ang renderer.Dun naman sa give them what they pay for; mahirap kase baka makita ng iba yun gawa ko tapos sabihin "huh??? gawa ni kalbo yan??? ang pangit naman??? ganun pala gawa nun??" or "parang minadali ni kalbo yan ah"...
Somethin like that.


Para kay kabalen Odi; oist at least naging catalyst ka ng pagbabago ng industriya dito sa pinas. Kung me pagbabago mang mangyari. Leche. Uwi ka dito me inihanda ako para sa iyo.


Para sa mag members na nasagasaan ko; no harm no foul.

Isa lang pahabol,

Yon pong chipipay na price at mahal na price ay may kanya kanyang market. Hindi lahat ng kliyente ay can afford kung sinong hudas man ang nag sabi ng leche hodang standard na yan. So if not all of them can pay - somehow, somewhere, someone's got to attend to them.

My last bottomline is - it does not matter how much you charge but be professional enough to deliver what you are paid for. Wag mo rin sasabihin na kaya mukhang scanline circa 1980 ang render mo ay dahil 1K lang ang singil mo.
If you charge 500 bucks for your renders and you are proud of what you do and your clients are satisfied - then you are in the right track. Pagbutihan mo pa at nbg makorner mo ang market na yan.

Price is not really an indication of a sunking market - its the quality you produce.

Now if I am to answer the original poster, how much I charge - I'd always say I charge what the client can afford. No standards.

I want a san mig na!

Re: how much do you charge???

Post by hans on Sat Feb 06, 2010 11:30 pm

For me ibabase ko ang singil ko sa rate ng isang 3d artist a day,
(syempre go sa pinakamataas na salary.)
if a 3d Visualiser has a salary is 25000-40,000 Pesos salary
then divide mo sa # of days na ginawa mo ang isang perspective.
so minimum mo is 25000/20day = 1250= ito yung rate per day (pinakaminimum na ito)
eh kung 40000/20days = 2000per day.
syempre varies sa country kung magkano sahod mo.

Another thing is may bayad ang revisions, maliban na lang kung iinclude mo sa payment mo.

The more tedious it get the more rate ang idagdag mo
"kailangan satisfied ka kasi di ka matutulog eh hehehe, "

And most of all.
It is important to have a written contract/proposal sa client mo stating the following;
General Arrangement/Aggreement
Scope of Work
Submittals (medium, file format,date of submittion etc)
Manner of Payment ( favorite ko itong part na ito).


Ito ang rule of thumb ko estimate.

I remember 4 years ago, i was commision to do rendering kaibigan ng boss ko ang may-ari isang commercial arcade para daw sa cover ng bulletin or brochure ata.. ginawa ko in autocad rendering P2,000 isang image lang after two days my pinarevised kc daw ang chinese ayaw sa itim na kotse, but it was done more on photoshop naman..libre na sana yon but then he added P1000 for the changes. Thats was the last time may nag render sa akin. Isa akon newbie sa 3d rendering at sa palagay ko mameasure naman natin how we will rate ou work without comrpromising your charges kc kung maganda ang quality ng trabaho natin then meron tayong karatan magtaas ng charge dba... Honestly di ko pa alam pricing ng 3d rendering until i join cgpinoy. For me dependi siguro sa scope of work lalo na sa akin more on OT ko gagawin, di bale na kung ibabarat lang kung talo manan sa tulog..

Whoa haba na pala..

Darn isa din ako nagsabi mababa ang 1500. Shocked pero sabi ko dati case to case basis..

Bago palang ako sa UAE more than 1 year palang pero back in pinas 1500 bayad din sa akin ng mga tropa ko hehe, Downpayment ang 1k tapos iinom na daw ang 500.. Not doing it frequently kasi di naman ako nag 3d talaga..

Lately lang ako nag sideline sa ibang tao,Minimum is 100 dollars per 1 basic rooms with 2 views...add nalang sya for cad drawings so 50$ pataas..

Pag exterior $100 pataas...pero case to case din kasi minsan Design ko+Cadd+ Special Site visit hehe...mostly sidejobs ito dito sa Midol east...

@All

Mahirap bayaran ang malayo ka sa pamilya, Hoping this will be my last year sa Abroad, kaso sa kalagayan ngayon sa Pinas hmmm might jo to other businesss nalang then sideline ulet ang 3d Viz. my 2 centavos...

OT: Naranasan ko kasi minsan or lagi na me 3d ITCH na kating kati kang mag visualize kahit luge ka pero gusto mong gawing maganda kaso yun lang, nagiging standard na. Very Happy

Yon pong chipipay na price at mahal na price ay may kanya kanyang market. Hindi lahat ng kliyente ay can afford kung sinong hudas man ang nag sabi ng leche hodang standard na yan. So if not all of them can pay - somehow, somewhere, someone's got to attend to them.

Price is not really an indication of a sunking market - its the quality you produce.

Now if I am to answer the original poster, how much I charge - I'd always say I charge what the client can afford. No standards.

I want a san mig na!

just to add up po, I totally agree to sir wrangler!!! NO STANDARDS! Always depends on the client's financial capabilities.

At yun nabanggit ni Sir Celes regarding sa on-going rate ng 3d render image dito sa Singapore. Just to add up again po, dito sa singapore, wala din fixed rate and the real thing is way back 2008 the company i was working into get a few extra rendering services from outside the office, interior renders... wanna guess how much per image??? S$50/image... wahh gulat din kaming lahat na pinoy sa loob ng office bakit ang baba ng singil nun local/chinese singaporean na 3d renderer... anyway my point is that equals the 1500Php nila sir Cloud, and like I said, it's never bad at all..

peace man inuman na

Post by v_wrangler on Sun Feb 07, 2010 2:01 am

On the business side of it , allow me to give ya all something to digest in addition to master celeste's post a while ago..

Like designer types, merong creative (di mo kailangan iexplain pa sa kanya dahil gumagana ang isip at pag-kacreative ng ganitong types) at robot designers (yong kung ano ang pinagawa o binigay na instructions, yun lang pagkakaintindi nya ang gagawin - yong tipong di na magkukusang punan ang kulang na instructions) ;

Meron ding tinatawag na good paying projects at not-so good paying projects. Di ko na ipapaliwanag ang good paying projects, i explain ko na lang ang ibig sabihin ng not so good. May mga pagkakataon na ang projects dahil sa kawalan ng budget ay daraan sa ranges na maaring katulad ng nabanggit na presyo ni kapatid cloud. Sa unang tingin, maaaring sabihin ng iba na ito ay masama sa industriya. Pero sa ganang tingin ng inyong lingkod - hindi ito palaging masama hanggat ito ay karugtong ng isang magandang relasyon sa kliyente o isang oportunidad para sa SUSUNOD na good paying projects. In my company, I do not hesitate to charge less than so called industry standards as long as I know that the client will be beholden to me and promise that the lesser price can be overcomed by a promise of a continous work or a much paying project.

Our goals as visualizers is to make the clients happy to come back (ewan ko lang sa iba). So we take the job not for the value of that particular project but for the positve benefit of the next project coming from the same client (at yung pagkwekwentuhan pa nila tungkol sa maganda naming serbisyo).

So thats it - if you live for the present, of course sasabihin mong mura, but if you live your life for the future and believe that your actions NOW will dictate your standing in the FUTURE, you'll do what most of us do, charge what your clients can afford now. Help them build their business now so they will come back and help yours as well.

Going back, maraming proyekto and dumadaan sa palad ko na malulula ka sa baba ng budget, pwede ko rin itong tanggihan pero mas nanaiisin kong ipasa ito sa ibang grupo na kayang gampanan at may workflow para sa ganitong level. At bakit ko naman gagawin ito? Dahil matutulungan ko ang kliyente (he'll be beholden to me) at may matutulungan pa akong ibang grupo na may maipapasweldo at maipapakain sa kanyang mga kapamilya.

Panghuli, hindi dahil si Designer A ay nakakatanggap ng bilyones ay karapatan mo na ring tumanggap ng bilyones (marami akong nakakasausap na ganayan) What Pedring gets does not mean Pedrito gets! Kung gusto mong makapareho si Designer A - do your homework, that is to exceed his level of quality or get stuck minding quantity.

One last factor to mind is overhead, this is relative to your location, standard and cost of living. So kung kayang punan ang murang trabaho sa Pilipinas - this will be totally different if you spend your life in Tokyo where you will die in minutes if you do not have the dough.

So the question goes back again, how do we save this industry? Learn if you are abroad and make your employers proud they hired you. If you are now in the position to juggle projects to the Philippines, send more jobs to the Philippines, support thy brothers instead of china or india (they already have their own doing the same thing!). If you are an industry affiliate or an active professional architect in the Philippines, band together and demand recognition for the craft.

For master Boyskan: It was all between me & master Odi; thats why I qouted only his post. Settled na din po yan halos magkapatid na turingan namin niyan; I owe this guy a lot...

For master Tony Falcon: "I do not hesitate to charge less than so called industry standards as long as I know that the client will be beholden to me and promise that the lesser price can be overcomed by a promise of a continous work or a much paying project."---natumbok mo agent X44. I have 7-year long clients. I give them what they need to get the contracts, they feed me. And i still got your vibrator to make you "beholden" to me, in a sort of devious manner. Brewskies will be waiting. Ride on your chauffeur driven vehicle you prima donna you..
