It depands on what are you creating? If you creating something that is not complex 1-2 days if you are creating more complex project 3-5 days.

I was making this 4 days: http://videohive.net/item/trajanus-titles-epic-trailer/110008 Most of my time i lose to recreate optical flares GRID

This few hours: http://videohive.net/item/3d-credit-card/103825 Here i lose 1 hour to create that small golden chip :)

This iwas done in 6 days: http://videohive.net/item/color-grading-hd/103476 Most of time i lose watching movies, tv spots, commercials etc. To recreate color correction and grading.

Well I just started learning After Effects, so I haven’t had huge projects. I have only submitted one thing but still waiting for approval.

Usually a video that goes for 30 seconds takes me around 1 whole day. But longer ones and more complex ones takes longer. Usually I get distracted though :D

1-2 days usually does it for me if I have the idea all figured out. If i dont – 3-4 days. It also depends on your skill level and techniques you use to optimize your work. All this in the condition you are in perfect state of mind and you are all into working!

The creative part for me is usually done in a day or so. The time consuming bit is building in a solid level of customizability and keeping it easy to use. I find doing the help files quite time consuming too. Perhaps I overdo them, but I think it’s part of a good customer experience.

I guess a big project could be as much as 5 days all in. A small one, like a logo sting 2 days including all the help stuff.
