Quality. Not Quantity.
Well Done Simon.
Here’s wishing you many happy sales
It’s so much nice to see that level of quality on VH is rising. In last two weeks every fifth template was great, amazing and unique in his own way. Bet that reviewers have trouble to decide which one to earn right to be weekly feature So just wanted to say one BIG well done to the authors that continue to make great projects and keep this place a live. best, nemanja
thanks for the nice comment, nemanja_reMAKE
yup same thing happened to me – Reviewers sometimes need 2nd opinion as to ‘which category it falls into’ or ‘how to be priced’ etc.
I wouldn’t worry about it. At least it’s not a rejection.
In general for videohive products… I always rate the product 5 stars the moment I buy it… Since you get what you see, and when I buy I only buy the products that I really like and think are really well made. Thus, obviously deserve a 5 stars right away.
but what if you buy it, then realise the AE programming, development of layers, scripting is messy, clunky, badly designed and costs you extra time and effort to modify than you anticipated?
For example – you may have to change the ‘YOUTEXT’ 25 time sin all 25 different layers, because the author hasn’t thought of an easier way to make users change ‘YOURTEXT’ once, then link it to all layers.
Would you still rate it 5?
Hey, I got a couple of questions that I want to ask you: 1)What about using some popular song lyrics in textholders? Is it legal? What’s the general situation with song lyrics, are they somehow licensed? 2)What about re-creating movie intro/outro title sequences? Not a complete copy but taking a general idea and making a template. Thanks!
As a published songwriter, and music copyright practitioner, may i answer your question
1) Yes – if the song lyrics copyright has expired or is in public domain. For example, i can create, reproduce and sell my song composition of ‘Happy Birthday’, Wish You A Merry Xmas, and ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’ .. but i can’t do the same for ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’.
But there are all kinds of permutations whether you are using them for commercial purposes or not. It would help knowing what type of song lyrics you wish to use in your textholders? (also depends on country as well).
2) Again, you can take ‘inspiration’ and pay homage to movie titles (typically such as Saul Bass), but it all depends on end use. If you are Paramount pictures and you are doing this? you will be sued heavily. If you are Joe Nobody film productions, doing a small you tube video that pays ‘homage’ to a great movie intro, then it will probably be overlooked.
Again – specific examples of the work you want to do, will yield specific answers.
Oh, and it is happening with Microsoft Office too, who are watching this VERY closely.

While we’re on the subject,is there a official Envato / Videohive channel on YouTube? Because there really should be!
actually, come to think of it, i’m not sure. if there isn’t then it’s a really good idea that should have been done years ago. And if Envato haven’t, then that lays the door open for people to create Youtube Channels like this ‘Best Project AE’ channel – and for them to personally capitalize on the referral links. I might just do the same myself.
I wouldn’t call him a thief.This is perfectly fine and good for the marketplace and authors. If i would have to say something negative,it would be the “spammy” approach of these channels.Large quantities of .flv’s ripped and uploaded without proper descriptions.
Yeah true. Once again, this isn’t meant to be a negative thread – just a discussion of this practice. Who knows – this Best Projects AE youtube channel could really become a highly-viewed channel in the future. Good luck to him i say.
