Default Modelling vs Animation

Once again here comes the good old question of pay. I'm not interested in how much they earn, but would like to know how the saleries of a someone employed to create models and someone employed to animate them. Do they earn around they same or does one earn more than the other? I ask because i've been doing a bit of both recently and don't have a prefference over which i'd like to specialise in.

I apologise for bad english as it's been long day of trying to debug a project i'm working on without success.

I don't know about the pay issue, just wanted to say that I think its a good idea to always be able to do a little of the other. A Modeler rigs and animates to understand what will be needed from there model as performance. A animater does better I think when they study shape and mass through modeling, and how it relatest to the motion they see.

I'm not saying don't specalise or even getting in to the merrits as far as job's. I'm just saying I think you will be worth more if you don't ever compleatly specalise in just one thing.

For the most part, animators make more.

Thanks, thats all i wanted to know.

I still would do a bit of both but if finally want a job modelling there's no point spending 3 years doing a animation degree. Apart from the whole getting used to deadlines part.

But what if your not sure what you wanna specialize in.

I wanted to do animation, and still do, but i also wanna give modelling a try.

That's me so i think i'm going with the animation degree as my modelling is something that can be self tought easier (i think).

Most schooling has a few months at the beginning where it's kinda generalized and let's you figure out what you like.
