It depends on the project if adding placeholders is simple. if they are placeholders that just have single item in them it’s one thing. but if there are pre-comps in those placeholders with shared comps in them that means every comp that will have different content has to also be duplicated.
i have a workaround for this using a script called true comp duplicator. it’s not rocket science, it just takes understanding of how nested comps work, but for new people it’s not easy to get and if there are a lot of things in a placeholder it can be difficult to do.
the only viable way I could see it being used is to only use that attribute on slide shows. and many that I have purchased were created with several render comps. each with a different number of placeholders. it made it VERY easy to work with.
Now the truth is I don’t have a problem with this now, but when I was first starting it wasn’t easy to do if I had to duplicate a comp, and the pre-comps inside, and the content inside of those. if that makes sense, and this is an issue i had more than I thought i would. True comp duplicator handled it for me, but newbies aren’t going to know what that is.
So to me, as a buyer, I’d MUCH rather see an attribute and a project with the number of placeholders. if the project was built with multiple render comps that could be specified too. but really it can only be effective with slideshows i think. Other things it would get too complicated too quickly
Dumb question but how to do i get to a page that shows someone I’m following on audiojungle? i can’t seem to find where i’ve set my following stuff
lol thanks. added yours.
I don’t even know if anyone uses these.
where can you find a list of public collections?
EDIT: never mind, i found them. i’m guessing showing up at page 1300+ and not at all sorting by date pretty much negates anyone ever seeing it.http://videohive.net/collections?page=1335&sort_by=name&utf8=%E2%9C%93
might be time to purge that? 68,000+ collections?
edit: wups, forgot to reply to comment
I don’t actually know where people go to find public collections. lol I’ve always made mine private, for my own use.
but i put together a collection of videohive projects for anyone looking specifically for Christmas templates.
hope someone finds it usefulhttp://videohive.net/collections/4764645-great-christmas-projects
nope i didn’t. I figured I’d ask here, I mean honestly I could do the changes, and additions I need, it’s not a matter of knowing how, it’s a matter of time. My billable rate makes it hard for me to justify how slow I am working on video.
It actually surprises me that there isn’t more security focused stuff. I mean that’s the biggest, fastest growing sector of the web right now, I honestly thought there’d be a lot more, but after searching i find that’s not the case at all.
