When situations like these happen, I’d like to ask you to create a support ticket and send examples of files from a set that were approved, to compare against the files from that same set which weren’t.

Merry go round. Support -> Forum -> Support. So i’ve send ticket and been advised : “If you’d like advice or suggestions for your item, you may want to visit the forums…” So i did, http://videohive.net/forums/thread/yet-another-hard-rejections/150272 and got one reply, cos none read. Next step is to brake the rule and post somewhere with high traffic. Mark, this is not personal, on contrary i remember you as very supportive and one of rare who actually join discussion.

Thank you for reply Jvb, even though am not really sure what’s your suggestion. Beside that, this is an excellent example how following rules can be turned wrong. By asking question and getting one reply in Item discussion, encouraging me to post in “videohive” section and if one do that, it will be closed and suggested to post it here. Merry goes around ….Sigh

Modeon clearly show us particle footage with black background. This file could be saved as quicktime / photo jpeg, which is best file size / quality option and alpha channel could be achieved by selecting add, screen or whatever in mode option in AE. Why would anyone use png with alpha channel? Question was how to reduce file size and if you are about to say that quick time / png with alpha is smaller in size, this discussion is over :)

What kind of Videohive template that would be, so you have to avoid using amazing “alpha matte” or even modes to down the file size? I’m really curious, could you please elaborate it? Thank you.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Now, if you have black or white background, use mattes / modes…you don’t need additional file to get alpha channel. So your file will be even smaller. In other words, snow flakes with black background.

How to put this in few words… Never use png quick time, your file would be even bigger. Png by default saves alpha channel and this is not what you want (in this case). You can save your video as quicktime/jpg and use mattes. You can also save as quicktime/jpg + additional file, which you will use as matte mask. I hope this make any sense?
i have rendered my footage with quicktime with alpha channel (png) and it is smaller than h264 without alpha channel… sooo
  • Quicktime / png = rgb + alpha
  • Quciktime / h264 = rgb only + alpha only
Have you tried quick time / photo jpeg and use mattes and modes? You would be surprised with file size.

Edit : Tea colors can be changed as well, most of the backgrounds and lights…Even last scene with 8 cups, each one of them can be changed. So, it’s either so trashy and can’t be salvage or all those customization options are just not enough. Anyway, waiting to hear from you, thanks.

https://vimeo.com/112818347 (it’s not hd/full hd preview)

Let me quote “The reason this was rejected before was because the footage is great, but the overlay graphics and customization options that make this an After Effects projects just aren’t up to our quality standards.”

I really do appreciate even this single line of reviewer explanation for being hard rejected, but in few words, anything that moves, wiggle, wipe…can be customized, just anything that is not video footage. On top of that, there’s extra pictures that can be replaced, full HD preview for each of sequence with details…

I’m not giving up on this one, but i just don’t get it. Any thoughts?

Speaking of number of sales is like lift boy counting money in front of customers. So i’ll skip numbers as i take it as inappropriate on top of that my account is 2+ years old, but my 1st item was uploaded roughly 1 year ago, so i don’t really have anything to compare with. But as for marketplace in general, i believe it become hugely overcrowded and that might be main reason for all ups and downs (downs mostly). Beside that, time we live in it’s not the same as it was few years ago. Personally, i spend less money than i did even last year. Somehow i feel i have to save it for…something.
