Ok i will say it…. we really need to do something about piracy.
I wrote about it here.
We need to start conversation with Envato. Talk about our problems. Not only few people but dozens. Because now nobody from Envato really care. Read their 2015 Roadmap. They want to focus on new unprofessional buyers, instead of brining back the old proffesional customers from warez sites.
The main problem is ignoring piracy. We ignore it because sending DMCA is a waste of time nothing more. Because there’s not much we can do. Envato ignore it because they like to ignore problems. But let’s stop this, group together and start conversation. Maybe we will find the solution.
What I really want to see on the road map, it’s some kind of protection from piracy. I don’t know about other markets, but on VH it’s became really huge problem. Only 3 – 4 sales and your file is free on dozens warez sites. It’s really bad. DMCA helps only in 60%, you lose a lot of time to sending those emails, but more wares links appear every day…
Thanks for sharing but I am really not sure what I read. There is not much of content (data) in there… it looks like a marketing brief.
Too many vague words.
Today, Envato isn’t always for ‘any skill level’. Pick up an After Effects file on VideoHive and unless you have the software installed and the know-how to use it, the template might not do you much good.What exactly is it mean?
You can’t open .aep files without Adobe After Effects. It’s a fact. So do you want to offer buyers a customization service? ...or… Do you want to oblige VH authors to offer customization? ...or… Do you want to create basic AE tutorials and offer free version of AE for each customer?... Maybe you want to close AE templates category?
So as you see it’s not quite clear what you are going to do. There are eight focus areas and I don’t think that I understand even one of them.
Looking at this thread I realize that we need to have “Like” button.
PS: This is a Thread of Spam.
Better to ask your question directly to the author of the theme.
You may also try to post your question on themeforest forum. But I think you will get the same answer.
It’s not looped. The start and the end is absolutely different.
Only Adobe can give us the solution. They can add the password protection function to AEP format in the newers version of AfterEffects. Protected AEP file can be saved without lost of protection and it can be opened\imported only if the password is right.
In this case pirates can include passwords in their archives. And this protection will quickly become useless.
We need something that from time to time connects to envato verify purchase code and write down the computer mac address. If there will be more than 20 (for example) different computer, the protection system lock file.
But still no one will stop pirate to copy or resave file, or some how remove protection…
In the world where you can duplicate any file 1000 and more times. Where it’s possible to share first 4 episodes of GoT, before they even were shown on HBO… In this world you can only leave with it, nothing more. Until Windows and Mac OS create some sort of protection that will not allow users to simply copy and paste files without special permissions.
DiegoMirnov saidTry this:
Hi Folks, I want to make a wiggle only in Y position, but my expression doesn´t work:
x = value ;
y = wiggle(20,20);
[x,y]What am i doing wrong? Thanks!
y = wiggle(20,20); [value,y]Your expression don’t work because wiggle in property with two values also has two values. So you need to put  or .
UPD: Sorry, I’m too slow
I think it’s not possible to create such script, may be a plugin that must be installed on buyers’ computers, too.
Pirates may simply unzip archive with their password, and zip it again without any password. So such protection will not stop them.
I think there is one temporal solutions for us.
Accept the fact that our projects is half-free. And put to them so many effort that deserve only half-free products.
Notice that all the time the same authors complain about low sales.
Look at “Recent Posts”, dozen posts about NO SALES. And of course, something wrong with VH.
Dear DOGmotion With all the respect…. have in mind that this is an official thread… and for sure the most popular in videohive forum. Some people do this in a professional way like a day job….. It’s not a game.
Of course I am worried for my sales…. in this thread I am expecting to see if my low sales are something that also other authors deal with.
It’s not a complaint about the way that videohive works…...
I find also a bit disrespectful from your side to point out “the same authors” with an ironic attitude.On the other side if you find this thread useless don’t post… and find the one that fit your taste.
Sorry. I didn’t want to hurt anybody.
I just don’t understand… What’s your daily job? Counting? Of course, NO. You are right it’s not a game. So respect yourself and stop doing accounting work.
And It’s nothing wrong when people from time to time make post that their sales are good or bad. It’s fine, good and interesting. But… But don’t panic, especially it’s looks strange when somebody panics every two month and has a huge drop of 50%. Today or this month you have low sales, next month will be better.
It’s a stock. For stable salary you need to work in the office.
Once again, sorry if hurt anybody. You all are free to panic and make conspiracy theories. I will not say anything more.
