I could recommend a very good movie: The Departed. Have you watched it?
I have, and loved it! I actually just watched the first episode from that new Vice TV show on HBO. Pretty good watch, looking forward to more of it. Although I don’t have HBO and was lucky enough that they posted the first episode for free online. A new one airs tonight, so I’m gonna have a friend DVR it for me.

Thanks for the link! As much as I love Bob Marley, I’m not too fond of dance/house music . But yep, I’ve got some of my own music playing as well right now.
How many files do you need to review per week or day? Is it hard?
There really is no set number and it varies depending on the types of files. Footage files are must faster to review because there’s a lot less to check. BUT there’s also a lot more volume in terms of submission numbers. Sometimes you’ll get 50 files in a row, all footage and it’s easy to get in a rhythm and blast through them, but other times I’ll get every category type sprinkled in and it slows things down a bit.
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..
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.
