Awesome, I’ve been waiting for this feature for a long time! Nice to have it finally implemented
Very interesting thread! I was also deciding whether or not to make the switch from mouse to tablet due to hand pain at the end of the day. Will probably switch in a few days after doing some research on the different types.
AE cannot save projects older than one version before (at least natively). CC will save to CS6, CS6 will save to CS5.5, etc. What you are asking isn’t possible with AE at the moment, so your only solution is to work in CS5 or lower if you want those compatibility. I know some authors who save as CS5.5 from CS6, open it in CS5.5, then save it as CS5. You could do that if you have those AE versions installed.
OpenSesame is a great script, but just know it’s limitations. You can’t export stuff that can’t be accessed with expressions like Hue/Saturation as mentioned in the info page. From what I know, very few authors use it, it’s much easier to use an older version.
Personally, I use CS5 for all my VideoHive projects and it works completely fine.
Very happy to see VideoHive updating their player to support HTML5, never liked the slow flash player. The performance so far is great and am looking forward to the H.264 upload option when it’s released! Finally, no more exporting .FLV.
I wish they would do away with the watermark though, I can’t see it helping them that much. Authors usually upload non-watermarked versions to YouTube/Vimeo anyways. If anything, it just makes the preview look uglier Now for AudioJungle, I can understand why the watermark would be essential. Maybe that’s just me!
felt_tips saidLove this idea. As an active user of scripts, I know that sometimes a demo video isn’t enough. People like to try out and test scripts on their specific project before purchasing, as some people may use scripts for a different purpose other than what’s outlined in a demo video. But I do realize there would have to be adjustments to the site to accommodate, plus script authors would have to write/modify all their scripts to support trials.
Also, how about offering a limited trial version of a script? “Buy before you try” is something that users are really not used to in the realm of software and plug-ins.
Scripts/plugins are definitely an interesting category on VideoHive. Just out of curiosity, how many authors here know how to write scripts/plugins for AE? Also, a lot of VideoHive buyers are not active AE users. I know a lot of my buyers can replace and edit text/logos, but that’s where it ends. I can’t imagine a lot of these users using scripts.
It definitely will be interesting to watch this category grow and expand, especially to see the level of quality and pricing of these scripts and plugins.
I was thinking the same last night. We could expect new 2d/3d software from Andrew Kramer.
Watch him call it “Atom” I mean he already has a great 3D “system” in Element and a great lens flare environment from Optical Flares, he’s not too far off from creating his own 2D/3D software! I think the next thing the VC Team will make is a truly dynamic particle system like RealFlow/Particular etc.
Yes, definitely upgrade that RAM , 4GB is extremely bare minimum. It’s also the cheapest to upgrade
