[Nick Toth] "I've earned a decent living doing video production and editing for nearly 30 years. Very rarely has a client been overly concerned with many of the issues that the professionals on these forums talk about. In my experience they just want the job done reasonably well within their budget and time constraints. They don't otherwise care if I were to use a pinhole camera and stop-motion to get it done."

I think it depends on what kind of client is hiring you.

End clients are results-only.

For agency or production company clients, both results and processes count.

I recently lost a bid for some 3D animation work because I use Cinema 4D and the agency wanted native Maya work. Could we have achieved the same end results with C4D? Of course, but that would have only met one of the agency's needs. They also needed to know that the work would fit in their client's pipeline without any issues if they needed to repurpose it.

From their perspective, even though we have a great relationship and they knew that we'd deliver the results they needed, I would have been the wrong choice for the job specifically because of the tools I use.
