Todd is right as usual. And if you had to do extra re-renders because of new client input or changes, you should charge.


It's a separate discussion, one we've had multiple times, on if you want to charge a lower rate for rendering unattended, compared to your time spent actively creating and supervising something. My personal sense of it is, if the render job takes the equipment out of production for anything else, then it's not out of line to charge one standard hourly rate. If it's an overnight unattended render that doesn't interfere with other work, you could choose to discount that render.

If you feel guilty learning on the client's time while trying something new, you could pro-rate or discount a few hours off the total and not say anything about it. But the work we all do ultimately is all based on our giving our time to the project. The hours are the expression of the effort to make the product. If the product is gorgeous or "just okay", the hours are still the hours.

Calculate your hourly and day rates and try to stick to them as much as you can, regardless to extraneous factors.
