I’m currently a 3D animator to be honest. for you guys who dont know, animating is a insanely heavy job to do, and I’m a senior (Sr.). But as a CG worker I cant help but notice the power and uprising trend of programming and Artificial Intelligent. So I need your help to have a overall picture of this industry.
A Sr. Animator like me can earn pretty much equal to a normal IT staff. But I see that programmers, or developers as Sr. positions can earn much bigger (in here they can earn around double my wage lol). So I’m wondering if should I start over as a fresh programmer? Is the chance of career high? I know as a fresher I cant expect the salary will be too high, but if the career is promising, with higher wage in the long run, it’s worth to try isnt it?
And are there many opportunities of programming jobs out there? I heard that developers in China are in deep stress because the chance of work is getting harder and smaller by time.
And I’m, also curious about AI as well. Is it a bit late now in 2019 to start learning AI (like I’m a fresher with no knowledge of coding at all)? AI’s indeed a really promising tech, with various of abilities. I’ll be really happy if I can be part of the show!!
