How much to charge for rigging?
show user profile  Jollabollathan
A student from the uni I studied at has contacted me asking for my services to rig her character for her current project. It seems fairly straightforward, the model's a human, I'll use Brad Noble'sskeleton rig for the body, and morph targets for the face. We're in discussion about whether there'll be any clothing that needs specific rigging rather than just skin-wrapping (going to meet with her tomorrow). My question is what sort of amount should I charge? Bear in mind I'm not a high-end professional, I only graduated last year, and rigging isn't realy my speciality (one of the reason's I'll use Brad Noble's rig). I don't intend to break her wallet as she's just a poor student. It shouldn't take me more than a couple of evenings (conveniently I have this next week free anyway).

Also, I'm in the UK, with the currently broken pound.

I can think of several methods she can use to "pay her dues".

If it's a college project then she should be doing it herself.

Since she's doing 3D stuff and can't even figure it out herself... ask about 150 quid?

First let's look how much time you're going to spend on this... then multiply that by 20 quid.. and add something so it's a nice round figure. 140 = 150 in this case.
