Great idea.

I think it would also be useful to know what version of AE people are running and which plug-ins they have.

Fantastic job. Really well done! And a great encouragement to new authors.

I remember my first sale – also $2 – back in Feb last. It was a great feeling.

Perhaps something like this would work for you: Amazing Stormy Night After Effects Project by juanmar00 (don’t think links are allowed are they?)
if I’m not mistaken it’s allowed as long that it’s not your own files or your own profile

Thanks – I’ll remember that in furture.

I’m sure the file I suggested can be found with Search (although it doesn’t come up for ‘rain’).

It’s very difficult to state a figure because every task is different and takes a different amount of time. That’s generally how I quote. Time * hourly rate = quote.

It’s obviously important to get from the customer exactly what they want before quoting, and then stating those things in the quote. Then, as often happens, if they come back later and say “can you just also do this and that” you can take a view on whether or not to charge them more.

For new customers I always ask for x% in advance; balance on completion (ie. before I return the project or the render).

@ dirtydeed – not sure what you mean?

If you tell us the problem – if the author can’t help – then I’m sure I/we’ll help you fix it. Usually it’s quite simple inserting a logo.

There are clients from hell … and customers from hell.

I’ve had a few shockers lately too – blackmail, general abuse, excessively negative comments…

Thankfully they are in the minority and will hopefully fade away from the community.

There is a saying: Garbage in; garbage out … so you can’t really improve quality when starting from poor quality. Like significantly enlarging a small image in Photoshop – quality is always going to suffer – because the image data simply isn’t there.

It’s always best to start with optimum quality (a lossless or ‘close to lossless’ codec) then render / encode to flv at various settings until you find a good balance of quality / file size.
