Any time there is a recognizable human face in any marketplace item, you must submit a signed model release form. If there are multiple people in the shot, you must submit a signed form for each person.

But really. What’s wrong with including ‘4k’, ‘loop’ and even ‘logo’ in your titles.

Yes they may/may not be filtered. but if i was a new as a buyer, looking for Fluffy Clouds in 4k. I am going to type Fluffy Clouds 4k in the search. And i want a list of all 4k fluffy clouds that describe this clearly in the title. I dont want to waste my time filtering.

As it stands now, if i type Fluffy Clouds, i get a thousand items, and have to spend my time searching for those that are 4k…. All because Envato refuse to allow authors to use the words 4K in the title.

Lets us put the actually descriptor in the title!!!

Actually, you can see the resolution of the clip in the short description right next to each search item in list view. It may not be displayed in the most visually appealing manner, but maybe the only issue here is presenting that information in a more digestible format so that it’s easier to scan with your eyes to pick out the clips that you’re looking for.

Or, maybe it’s possible for the devs to allow for a separate resolution filter option that will show clips that are of a certain resolution, therefore removing any doubt what the resolution of a clip is. If you want to search 4K clips only, you could click a “4K” filter and see only clips listed as 4K. Just an idea…

The Author Knowledgeable is currently being updated to include a list of words we don’t accept in the titles, however, in the meantime, we’re trying to weed out the submissions that do contain these words.

off course this is not your job (how the marketplace interface/website works) but I can’t visit that knowledge database very often and read everything each time just to check if something had been updated/changed/removed.

We need a better system

I agree with you that the system could be better and more automated (it would certainly make things easier!), but I do know that there are certain limitations inherent within the current system that is in place.

I completely understand that you can’t or don’t want to check the Knowledgebase frequently. But that’s partially what the reviewers are here for… to make authors aware of changes or things that we do and don’t accept.

We aren’t saying they’re not important, we just don’t accept them in titles. The search results aren’t based on the text in the title alone.

A title such as “Clouds in a Blue Sky” is much cleaner and more professional looking than “Clouds in a Blue Sky 4K Time Lapse Looping Dolly Shot” :)

Adding those terms to a well-written item description and to the tags is just as important – if not more important – than adding them to the title.

savastgfx, you’re now aware of the rule :)

The Author Knowledgeable is currently being updated to include a list of words we don’t accept in the titles, however, in the meantime, we’re trying to weed out the submissions that do contain these words.

Again, small things such as this will unfortunately slip through on occasion. An issue of whether we miss a “4K” in the title has no bearing on the quality of its content or the number of sales an item will generate.

The titles have been fixed, thanks for bringing them to our attention. As stated earlier, shot descriptors, resolution descriptors or technical attributes such as “close up”, “dolly”, “macro”, “loop” “4K”, “HD”, etc. are not permissible in the titles.

Instead, they should be placed in the item description and/or tags.

Sometimes things like this do slip through (we aren’t robots, which might surprise a lot of you!), but part of our job as reviewers is to educate authors on what we are and aren’t accepting so that these sorts of things happen less frequently.

MotionRevolver what if it is stock with animation applied to it. Like in example some real shot modified to look interesting and fit into some special theme like finances or real estate. Is it motion graphics or stock footage ?

Stock Footage is usually the better category for that type of stuff, since it’s technically video with composited animation.

You’re correct in thinking you shouldn’t upload 50 separate items. We accept bundles/packs of 10 clips or less, so it would be best for you to upload 5 separate packs of 10 files.

If they are animations created with a computer then yes, please place them in the Motion Graphics category. If the clips were filmed with a camera, please place them in the Stock Footage category.

The specifications should always be made in the item description and tags. As you can imagine, allowing descriptors in titles could get out of hand, such as: “Clouds Time Lapse HD 4K Wide Dolly Shot Loop” :)
