Right now we do make exceptions for files that are clearly in need of a higher maximum limit. If it’s noticeable to the reviewers that you’ve made attempts to get the file size down, using good compression methods and proper placeholder support, we’ll approve it. But if you’re just providing a few assets in full, uncompressed animation formatted videos, we’ll usually soft reject and ask you to work on the file size.
Two side-notes.. When you do plan to upload more than 500MB, use the FTP uploader as you may end up spending a lot of time waiting on the web form only to find out it broke somewhere along the way. And also, we’re looking at increasing the size across the board. More info should be provided in that department soon .
Just a quick note about the support system. Whenever someone responds from our end, the ticket technically gets “closed”, and if you respond back again, it opens back up. Did support staff say “we’re closing this now” or did they just respond and now you’re seeing it’s status set to closed?
Regarding the issue though, my personal suggestion would be to send another take down request to YouTube, but also send it to the file sharing site as well. And when you prepare the take down, you may want to create a proper DCMA take down. You can download and use a generic DCMA take down template using a google search. Or you could try this app FreshKiller that a TF author FreshFace built to help out with the process.
I don’t think this is something we’d ever implement. Since we require certain specifications within our preview (watermark, format, resolution), allowing embedded previews from elsewhere would make it impossible for us to enforce these specs. Anyone would be able to upload a video with the watermark showing, and then later on just replace it to not have the watermark. In all cases the watermark is there for your protection, but you’d be surprised to find out how many people hate the watermark and would rather not use it.
In terms of streaming issues, it could be caused by a server hiccup. But then again I’ve only experienced slow loading times on VH previews maybe three times since it’s been live. And all of those times were actual bugs in the system that were fixed pretty quickly. But on the flip side, I have a 50Mb down connection and I’ll sometimes visit YouTube videos and have trouble getting them to load more than a few seconds in the beginning.
Its just that it seems like the barrier of entry is a bit less steep for C4D . And it’s one of the most common programs used for motion graphics. While I’m sure just as much, if not more, could be accomplished using Maya or Max, it may not fit our current buyer base.
If Cinema4D continues pickup up steam it will be easy to build a case to start integrating other programs down the line. However the most obvious next choice would probably be something like Blender as it’s free and pretty capable.
Yep agreed. I’ve started a conversation within the team to try and better outline what’s permitted and what isn’t to remove as much of the subjectivity as possible out of the equation. Hopefully then we won’t have these issues of double standards, even between two different marketplaces.
Hey guys, I thought it was necessary to comment in this thread. The thing is we have always taken a “family friendly” stance on content. When we make a statement like the intention is simple, but in reality things can get a bit fuzzy. The line in which content breaches the family friendly area and moves into “adult” content is not always clear. Also it’s one of those things where each person could have an opinion on what is too far.
What’s making matters worse is that in some areas we may accept material that shows some skin, but then in others we’ll reject for that very reason. It’s not consistent and it leads to a lot of confusion.
Unfortunately I don’t have a clear answer for you guys at this very minute. But I will talk with my team and try to get some official policy created that spells out exactly where the line is.
I made the jump into the Creative Cloud subscription and got AE 6 along with it. Haven’t really had a chance to test out the new features, but it seems pretty solid from the little I have played with. Unfortunately I can’t really make use of the raytracing stuff because my GTX 290 is not supported. Whats funny is it’s just one model away from being supported, as the next card up is fully supported .
Our sister site CodeCanyon has a bunch of video players for sale. I did a quick search for MP4 , and the results include a few players that support MP4 playback as well as playback of content from other sites.
Or you could also check out some outside offerings like Sublime Player or JWPlayer which are also pretty good. Not sure about pricing for those though.
For me this is not an option. Customizing jobs are one of the good side effects on the envato marketplaces. Actually for me the only reason why I sell templates for just a few pennies. Of course I only customize my own templates, because I do not want to steal any business from anyone else. So am I the only one who thinks that the business idea presented here is based on work of other authors and takes assignments away from those to where they belong?
Well here’s a few things to keep in mind.
- The license that all projects are sold under here on VH completely allows this practice. So long as anyone doing this buys a new licence of each project file for each customization job they get. And they make their clients aware that they’re charging for the customization of the project. The client owns the license to the project, not the person performing the customizing.
- If a person was on here, advertising their services in your item’s comments, I’d understand the thought that they may be taking your work from you. But if they’re advertising their services on their own, outside of VH and then buying a license of one of your projects for a customization job, it very well may be a customization job that would have never been offered to you to begin with. Heck, you probably would have never even gotten the sale for the job as there’s a good chance the client may not be aware of VH, or picked your file if they were aware. So a good way to look at this is a possibility for increased sales on your items, rather than looking at it like it’s lost work.
