3D rendering and budget

I just made a product animation for a company and not sure what should i quote them as i never did this kind of work before. Should i go for hourly rates of project based. :confused:

It depends on the intensity of the project, but it’s best to establish that before you begin the project, as well as having documentation written up and if possible, signed by both parties.

Without more details, like time spent, quality, your experience, and the companies projected sales of said project you will be hard pressed to get a straight answer here. What it comes down to is, what do YOU feel the time you spent on the project is worth?
