My daughter has recently graduted with a fine arts degree specialising in animation.
Given the difficulty of getting employment in today's market I want to help her to become self-employed in the field.
To this end she wil need a professional desktop set-up.
Problem is that I don't know where to start and I have no idea of budget (perhaps given the circumstances that will have to be what it takes).
She wants to be able to work on animation, backgrounds and video as well as perhaps some game design work. I'm given to understand that rendering can be a problem and can be time consuming without the right kit (rendering farm?) you can see I know very little about all this.
So to the questions:
1. What specification should I be looking at for a professional desktop set-up?
2. What budget should I set to pay for?
Many thanks in andvance for your help/guidance.
