3- Create the 3D animation itself, this step requires a specialized 3D studio or it may be called a CGI studio (Computer Generated Imagery).

The first step is always making the 3D model of the product, this step requires an accurate and detailed 3D artist to start mimicking the product and try as much as possible to be like the real product.

Then 3D product visualization starts, using high-end tools and specific programs that are physically accurate and simulate how the light reacts in real life.

3D product animation videos are then rendered and this requires some computers that are more capable than average computers. As 3D rendering requires much processing power.

4- the final step is adding music and sound effects to the final sequence, sometimes this step requires special studios that deliver high-quality sound effects that are relevant to the scenes.

How much does a 3D product animation cost?

The price of 3D animation is a very wide topic and there are a lot of things that should be considered in order to set the final price
One of these factors and probably the most important one is the length of the video

Because 1 second contains 24 frames (24 images needed to be rendered to form 1 second) and each frame may take about 3-5 minutes according to the complexity of the scene, but some frames may take more than 30 minutes and it also depends on the hardware used for rendering.

Examples of some 3D product animation videos:

There are many examples that you can use in your campaign to boost your sales.

From these examples is to use some simulations to show off some specific features, for example, if your product is waterproof then you can show this by using visuals showing the product in a water tank for example.
