@MotionRevolver, same thing crossed my mind, but it’s way too complicated for envato I believe. The best they can do is to make the rating with commas instead of rounding.
I agree. Envato is so great because of how simple it is. I suppose I was just listing those things as a “wish list” sort of thing, but implementing any of my suggestions would really just hinder the friendly user experience.
This might have been mentioned earlier in the thread, but since Envato already has the rating system for individual project files, maybe they could have a rating system for authors… kinda like eBay?
If an author has a rating of “4.7 out of 5” based on the quality and support of his files, that author could be considered to be a reliable author.
What a great, inspirational story! Congratulations on all of your success, Yo, and I wish you much more success in the future.
As a new author to VideoHive, to be even half as successful as you have been, I would be elated!
And even more importantly, congratulations on the birth of your child!
Without getting too deep here, its amazing how the Envato marketplaces are bringing artists around the world together into one location. It’s such a great experience to communicate and collaborate with people who are oceans away.
Although I’m new to the marketplace, I think a more detailed reviewing system would be highly beneficial to the artists who go above and beyond to make their project files and motion graphics stand out from the rest.
I don’t mind the star system though. It’s very simple and easy for buyers to interpret whether a file or animation is worth looking into.
In the instance of AE project files, it might be worth while to have a few categories listed such as “Ease of Customization”, “Project Flexibility”, “Documentation/tutorial/support”, etc. as well as a space to write a short paragraph reviewing what is good and/or what could be better about the project.
Although, I feel that it’s already difficult enough to get buyers to rate the items they purchase in the first place, so adding complexity to the reviewing process might be a hinderance.
I do think that one of the easiest steps to make would simply be attempting to get as many reviews from purchasers as possible. It seems as though maybe only 25% of people who buy files actually rate the product.
Does Envato send follow-up emails to buyers who purchased a file, asking them to rate their purchase? If not, maybe they should send a quick email a couple days after a buyer makes a purchase, asking them to rate 1-5 stars on the product.
And maybe that can buyer rating be accomplished within the email, so that the user doesn’t have to come back to the Envato marketplace to rate specific purchases?
I’m rambling now… but those are my thoughts!
Are you getting any sort of error message when the render stops? If the render stops at the same frame every time, you’ll have to figure out what is going on at that exact point. Any big compositions or 3rd-party plugins being used at that point in the animation?
One thing to try, is restart AE to make sure you’re starting fresh, and render the animation as a PSD , TIFF or PNG sequence (I prefer PSD ). Sometimes rendering an animation frame-by-frame as a sequence helps AE process it easier.
Give it a shot and let us know how it works out.
Hey everybody. Motion Revolver is the brand I’m building, but my real name is Tyson Frantz.
I just joined a couple weeks ago and I’m really excited to be part of the community. The reception has been phenomenal, and everyone here seems extremely talented, nice and helpful, so I’m proud to be part of such a great group of artists.
I seem to have a break in my schedule in the coming weeks, so I’ll have more free time to create content for VideoHive. I’m hoping to build my portfolio quite a bit over the next several weeks.
I’m looking forward to getting to know each of you more, and thanks for the everything so far!
