Well, digitalscience one day (hopefully on the 22nd) you’ll lol at yourself and can’t believe how gullible you were. So yes, I bet you’ll feel more “enlightened” after the 21st
You’re right. That similar items feature is broken since the day it was introduced. Some people’s items dominate these results.
Just out of curiosity, is the price or the fact that it’s allowed the bigger issue? Meaning, if it were much more expensive, would authors be happy?
It’s not a pricing issue at all. For the VH author to profit, the AJ author has to loose. There’s no fine line in this. Raise the prices and it won’t be feasible for the VH authors. Similarly, lower the prices and AJ authors will opt out of the extended license (which many of us already did, at the expense of loosing the “legitimate” extended license revenue).
In short, I don’t need to compete against another stock author with my own item. Please disallow it.

Yes, but it’s again in your DAW ’s domain. In FL studio, there’s a top menu on the Kontakt vst wrapper, you click on it and select “browse parameters”. Then Fl studio lists both normal midi controllers (mod wheel, sustain, etc.) and the other assignable parameters of that Kontakt instance.
It might be totally different in your DAW , though.
Yes, it is. On the left side panel, there’s a “auto” tab at the top menu (Files, Libraries, ..., Auto). Click on it and you’ll see parameters listed as “not assigned”. You can drag and drop any of those controllers on any instrument knob. The rest depends on your DAW . You’ll need to browse parameters to find the one you just assigned on a knob.
I’ve given it some thought and had to opt out of extended license. This is not necessarily about videohive authors. With these terms, authors from other video marketplaces over the web can buy top AJ tracks and include them in their after effects projects and sell unlimited number of copies elsewhere with whatever price they wish. What will happen to AJ then? Am I missing something here?
As an exclusive author, opting out of extended license is not a desirable solution as well but looks like we have to do it. I don’t like this at all.
The only restriction concerns templates and software applications :
if the Work is a template or software application you can’t sell it as a tool, template, stock item, or have the source files included.
It doesn’t say anything about music, so according to these terms one can use AJ music in video templates.
Hmm. I always thought “the Work” referred to the larger work but looks like i’m wrong. In that case, there’s nothing preventing VH authors to include AJ music in their projects with extended license.
"The larger project is usually not a template or stock item." In this sentence, i don't like the word "usually". It's open to interpretation. After all, the actual license agreement might be more binding then this explanation.
