To be honest, I really don’t know. Work with Envato got pretty busy, and life outside of work got hectic as well. I used to use my down time to play around and make files, but I kind of ran out of that downtime over the last few years. I haven’t really touched AE (creatively) in a LONG time. What’s funny is I was just looking at my old items, and realized how terrible they are now, comparing them to current design trends and styles.
I should make files again though..
I’ll have to shoot her an email and see where she is, didn’t know she’s on this side of the pond.
Hahah, if only it was that easy.
In the middle of a reviewing session at the moment, it’s raining pretty hard outside, and just feels like one of those blah days. Need some entertainment/conversation/anything. Who’s around?
Hey Milicom, sorry for the delay, support might be backed up. I’ve changed the category for you. Please reply to the ticket email and let them know that it’s been resolved and the ticket can be closed.
I personally like the random notes or funny things I come across during review. Can’t speak for all reviewers but I enjoy them. They don’t sway the review in either direction though .
MarkBrodhuber saidMark thanks for clarifying, I’m sure a lot of people are not aware of this, while here on Videohive they may get their items removed and a warning (I guess this is the way it works) they might also get some more serious legal troubles with Videocopilot, so everyone should be well informed about this risk (maybe somewhere in the upload page). I understand that pre-renders are not allowed in AE templates, otherwise no one would buy Element 3D anymore, but I find the motion graphics limitation pretty aggressive… however this is the way their license works
Rendered elements cannot be uploaded as motion graphics animations, nor can rendered E3D elements be provided in projects.
It was something we discussed in pretty great depth when Element 3D was first announced. At one point Andrew Kramer joined in on the conversation. The full thread is here: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/important-information-regarding-video-copilots-element-3d/69149?page=1
It’s also mentioned in this guidelines page as one of the first points: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/435/0/element-3d-submission-requirements
As far as the motion graphics limitation, its only due to Video Copilot’s licensing. We have to comply with the license they put out.
An oldie but goodie
NeuronFX saidI build the scene in Cinema 4D, and export to Octane. In Octane you build the materials & lighting…it’s the most amazing render program out there (with Arnold at the top as well), not expensive, and render amazing results in a very high speed.
How does octane render works out for you? I heard some things about it, but never head the chance to work with it…
And it works well? When I looked at their site a while ago I saw it say the C4D version was “coming soon” so I just assumed this could not be used for any C4D work. Didn’t realize you could still utilize the standalone render app.
If you don’t mind me asking, what exactly is the difference between using this (or any other) rendering tool rather than just using the one built into C4D or any other 3D program? I’m a bit dense when it comes to detailed 3D knowledge, so I’ve always been curious to know why someone would pay extra to use a different rendering tool.
