Can I use several videos to make one longer final video out of them?

I suppose technically you could, but I’d be tempted not to do this. Remember that you’re demonstrating how your music can be used and synced alongside a single VideoHive project. Viewers and potential buyers may get confused with more than one VH project rolled into one, especially as you have to include links to the corresponding VH project. I’d say just create one track of music specifically for one VH video, and promote that.

For longer pieces of music (more suitable for film, for example), you can search for Creative Commons Attribution License video footage on Vimeo, and use that to sync your music to (check my post here on how to find that on Vimeo). This is what I’ve been doing myself on my own YouTube channel, and works pretty well.

Ableton Live 9 user here. Been using Live since it’s early days in 2004, after spending many years previously using hardware sequencers and workstations. Back then, the whole realtime ‘clip’ performance way of working was it’s biggest attraction, but these days I’m almost always working in it’s more traditional, linear ‘arrangement’ view.

Ironically, I’ve actually recently reintroduced hardware step sequencers alongside my DAW (the Elektron Analog Keys, TR-8/TB-3 and Korg Volcas) when producing more EDM orientated material, in an attempt to ‘break out of the box’, as it were. Coming up with loops and sequences on actual bits of outboard kit gets you thinking differently and possibly more creatively, and is definitely a welcome break from staring at a 2D, rinse and repeat DAW all day long.

My body is 37 and ¾, but luckily my mind is still stuck at about 20 :bigsmile:

Hi AlumoAudio,

That some great info but acordding to the second link you gave in your comment – You’ve got premmison to use the watermarked file only in Envato marketplaces, and not in Youtube,Viemo Etc.

And what I understood from your post that you actually can use it on Youtube, correct me if i’m wrong about this, I’m also a bit confused ^^ Tnx:>

The first link is just an updated version of the second article. It mentions this if you scroll down on that second article.

As long as the preview file has a link and credit straight back to the original item on Envato Market, then there shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, this is how many people take advantage of Envato’s affiliate program, by introducing new customers to Envato Market and earn referral income in the process (myself included! ;) )

Hi Miranda,

You may want to have a read through these articles, to get a better picture of how this works.

As long as you correctly link and credit the media back to the original video project on VideoHive, you’ll be fine. Remember to add your referral codes to any Envato links you use, so you can earn referral income, should any viewers follow the links and go on to buy the items (be it your AJ item, or the VH item).

Also, you’ll be able to download the preview file via the item’s ‘Video Preview’ button, (seen in the image below), which you can use to sync with your own music and promote outside of Envato Market, such as on your own site, Vimeo, YouTube, etc.

Hope that helps. :)

It’s more important to draw people from soundcloud to audiojungle, not vice versa. ;)

Of course, that goes without saying.

But some people, buyers included, do prefer to use SoundCloud when following music feeds by their favourite composers, rather than having to log into their Envato accounts.

It’s so easy for them just to follow you and your uploads on SC via your AJ profile now, at the click of a button. That way, if they like your music, they’ve got a direct (referral) link straight back to your music here. It’s a simple addition that gives access out to yet another huge networking and promotional outlet. In the long term, that may be more important than you may think ;)

Hey guys, just thought I’d share the great news from Ronja on this thread that our SoundCloud profiles can now be added to our marketplace profile pages (via the ‘Your Social Networks’ tab in your account settings).

Just enter your SoundCloud username, save and you’re done (no need to enter the entire web address).

A feature much requested over here on AJ and good to see it in action. Cheers Envato! :)

Thanks for the great feedback everyone!
Any chance we could have Soundcloud added to the list of social networks?

Great idea! We added Soundcloud as a new option today :)

Whilst on the subject of the social network links on our profiles, I was wondering if an update to the Google+ icon could be possible?
Nice pick up, AlumoAudio! We updated all icons visually today, so they look up to date :bigsmile:

Thanks for this Ronja! Looking much, much better! :D

The folks over at AudioJungle especially, are going to be absolutely over the moon with the addition of SoundCloud, as it’s an often much requested feature. Good work and thanks for listening and acting on our feedback! :)

Adagio series by 8dio (I have violas and cellos). :)

+1 That would be my choice too. Also using 8Dio Adagietto to layer up with.

Matt is doing a lot of fine work behind the scenes for all of us, so how about buying him a beer or two for that by buying one of his tracks now ?

+1 and done! (from his Exclusive account)

Thank you for all you have done for me Matt!

Paul

Hahaha thanks so much Paul! Way too kind! :bashfulcute:

Again very nearly got caught off guard with that sale. Although I have to say that the 5 star rating and ultra positive feedback kind of gave the game away! ;)

PS….I intend to monetize the heck outta that great track! :)

Monetize away! You’ve got the license for that now at least! ;)
