Hi,I was asked to look into outsourcing our visualization works and was just wondering how much you guys think the work in this quality is worth ( per scene) ? Given it is done by a company in S/E Asia region where I know for the fact that the minimum wage is 9-10 $ / day and an architect grad earns somewhere around 400-500$ a month.Thanks
depends... Some companies pay tens of thousands of dollars for visualization work done by firms like MIR or Pixelflakes. While I'm sure some pay people on fiver.com $5 to have a few renderings http://www.fiverr.com
and they ask why architecture firms are losing their value.
Smells like an "Outsource to China" kind of thread.
But to answer your question, visualisation work like the one you've posted as example can be made with 1-2 hundred bucks on sites like Freelancer oDesk Elance etc, but usually, you get what you pay for.
Thanks for the comments. You get what you pay for ... could not agree more on that. I would have thought somewhere around 200-300$ too / seems to be the price that most firms in that region are offering afaik.
Firms like MIR charge $4500 per image, regardless of whether it is a birds eye view or a eye-level one.
Most CG firms in China will charge about $800-$1200 for a Birds-Eye, and about $500-800 for eye-level shots...
My firm charges clients upwards of $1500 per rendering.
It would be interesting to associate some images, quality and speed of work with the price tags, IMO.
