PC Building Guide for 3D Animation & Rendering
Published by Arthur Whitehead on Jan. 6th 2021
At this point I've had so many people ask me about what PC parts or what laptop to buy for 3D animation and rendering that I had to make this post for everyone.

There are people that keep up a lot more with the updates and trends when it comes to building PC's for GPU rendering and video rendering work than I do. So instead of giving my 2 cents I've linked their video directly for you to watch. This video was created by 
Motion Designers Community and they helped me a lot when I was really into building the best PC I could and pouring money into it for 3D. So shoutout to them

These are my current specs for what I use on a day to day basis, these days I work 100% off my laptop but I used to link to my workstation and use it for a lot of the bulk rendering.

I've explained a lot of my workflows between the two how everything was setup in my free guide a lot of you have received through email.
