6 Seconds.

Believe it or not, in the animation world six seconds is the average monthly workload for an animator working at production level. In production houses like Dreamworks, Pixar* etc the average scene time renders at about 27 seconds per animator. There’s a formula the animation team uses that generally it will average about a hundred frames a week (that’s 4 seconds of actual screen time). Also, it depends on how many characters are in a shot, the difficulty of the shot, interaction with a props etc. I spent a whole day cleaning up the graph editor alone. This is also my first time working with After Effects and compositing. I must say that after diving head in to Maya, After Effects and Adobe products seem like training wheels.
