It would be nice if we could add a text ( about the content ID – youtube thing ) to our files without uploading the whole zip folder.
Hey NoizMan, this shouldn’t be the case. The description/attribute edit form is completely separate from the file upload/resubmission form, so you are able to update your item’s information separately, without having to change or upload your item files.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to say that, I want to add a text file in the zip file explaining the process. I am editing the item descriptions as required but I don’t think that all buyers are reading the whole thing. A text file in the zip folder may take more attention. In this case I need to re-upload all my files. You may think about giving us an option to add/replace a text file seperately which will be downloaded automatically with the zip file when buyer hits the download button or Envato may add this text file ( or send an automatic e-mail ) to the items which are marked as ‘YouTube Content ID Registered’.

Ah you’re right, that would indeed require a reupload of the item.

If you do add a text/readme file to your items in this way, I recommend simply linking buyers to the YouTube Content ID Help Center article on Envato Market, in case anything should change to the process or details in the future, the information in your items will remain up-to-date and you won’t have reupload all of your files once again (e.g. if YouTube changes it’s clearance process, etc).

Hi,

I want to know: If I’ll not use content ID, my AJ’s account will not be blocked in future?

Content ID is an optional procedure. The main reason authors use it and AdRev is to track down illegal / un-licensed uses of their music. They then can choose to monetise the video with ads, or take other actions such as muting the content that is theirs.

Don’t worry, your account will not be affected whether you choose to use Content ID or not. That’s completely up to you.
https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/204484670?_ga=1.104351879.642403002.1430258065 While we will always do our best to give you the opportunity to remedy the situation, failure to follow the above guidelines may result in potential disablement of your item(s), or worst-case scenario your account.

it is not optional . A force and deadlines are clearly described . These dates will soon come to an end )

In the interest of clarity and a consistent experience for AudioJungle buyers, we’d ask that you do your best to update your items within one month’s time.

Hey folks, as JamesV said, whether or not you choose to register your music with YouTube Content ID is optional and remains up to the individual authors’ choice and what they feel is best for them and their music.

Regardless of whether you choose to register your music or not, we ask that you update your item attributes as soon as possible to ensure clarity for buyers. If you do not have your music registered, simply choose “No” for the YouTube Content ID Registered attribute.

That’s all there is to it :)

Hello. Am I allowed to create and animate iOS 8 default style icons like arrows, buttons, keyboard etc, and include them in the project file?
Hello, again. Can I get an answer, please? Can’t go further in production without it. Thank you! :)
Staff, please. It’s 3rd time when I ask. I can’t really do anything with icons without getting an answer. Am I ignored or what? :)

Hi Nullifier, please see this Help Center article:

Always remember that you can only use assets in your items that you own or have a license to use. It’s your responsibility to make sure you’ve used any assets in your items legally and only in the proper way.

You may wish to investigate this directly with Apple: https://www.apple.com/legal/intellectual-property/

I got all excited…until I saw ‘with vocals & lyrics’.

Personally, I think instrumental Indie Rock should be allowed for submission and the bonus prize awarded to the track with best vocals and lyrics.

By doing that will open the contest to everyone in our little community and not restrict it to a small minority here that are in a position to realistically pull this off. Just my thoughts!

Aw you can do it Alumo! Don’t think of it as a restriction, but as a challenge/opportunity. Plenty of time to collaborate or try something new :)

So, is it allowed to use vox loops?

Songs only using vox loops / vocal samples would not be eligible for this event. We’re going for actual vocals & lyrics here :)

Maybe Envato is searching indie tracks with vocals specifically; It’s interesting to know if tracks containing just “Heys, Uhs and Ohs” are qualifying for this contest. They won’t win the best lyric that’s for sure :)

We’re looking for music with vocals & lyrics with this event, so simple non-lyrical or background vocals wouldn’t be eligible here. You can of course certainly still submit songs like this to AudioJungle!

Fun competition guys. :) Probably a long shot, but what about indie tracks with spoken word vocals like this one – https://soundcloud.com/martinemes/musicality Does it have commercial potential? Would it be acceptable on AudioJungle?

Hey Toivo, we wouldn’t consider that track as having vocals & lyrics, so unfortunately wouldn’t be eligible for this event

Excited for this contest! But I do have to echo a few other people in asking—can you give maybe give some examples as a guide? Before I found out about the contest I was actually beginning to work on a project that could be considered Indie Rock, but borders on “Indie Pop”. I was sort of going for a Florence and the Machine type of vibe rather than something harder like Arctic Monkeys. Indie Rock seems to be such a wide genre, Arctic Monkeys, London Grammar, Florence and the Machine, The Fleet Foxes, MGMT, Bastille, Passion Pit, Of Monsters and Men, and Mumford and Sons; you get a lot of different styles. Some that are more pop, some that are more electronic, some that are more folk and some are more traditional rock, and some are just a mixture, but they’re all typically lumped into the Indie Rock category. So I guess what I’d like to know is if AJ is looking for a broad Indie Rock sound that embraces pop or folk influences or are you going for something more strictly rock?

Yep broader is fine. The only direction we have is essentially “rock with a bit of extra attitude, experimentation, quirkiness, and more alternative style”. I’d say to be “rock” it probably should use guitar in some way too. The rest is up to you :)

http://videohive.net/item/balloon-holiday-transition/9997331 Good luck guys! =)
Nice item! However per the contest rules:
“Only new items uploaded to the site within the contest time period are eligible.”
The contest is open through June 11th, so plenty of time to create tons of great new clips :)

Also please note the additional eligibility requirement as stated above:
“The video preview must highlight the transparency of the clip using the standard checkered background. The preview may also showcase it with other alternate backgrounds/scenes to help demonstrate compositing.”

Best of luck!
