That’s not a video. it’s a static picture! from a point and shoot camera….. oh wait. did i see a man jogging by? finally. some life!

Actually, joking aside – there is a defined point I’m making here. Rather than just point a picture at a building and shoot – think of the whole composition. making beautiful footage that draws the viewer into a scene uses the same principles as good photography. Try taking different angles. get down low. get off angle, shoot peering through the branch of a tree. change the perspective.

DON’T shoot at Midday – when the sun is brightest in the sky, it washes out colors, makes blue skies look really bleached flat and pale and uninteresting, and most importantly, gets rid of shadows which add badly needed contrast to your composition. Also, NEVER shoot against a blank sky. Your shot will look bland. Always try to get some lovely cirrus or cumulus clouds if possible.

Have you tried shooting this scene at 6am in the morning first light? or just before dusk? Better catch that golden light babe, because shooting ancient stone buildings at 6am will cast a luscious golden sandy glow to it – like the Pyramids or something.

your Torre de Hercules 02 is a bit better…

You said: ‘Well, I shooting video for directly upload to VideoHive, I almost never edit the footage’

I’m afraid you couldn’t be more mistaken. you need color correction to pull out those greens and those blues. You need to balance the contrast to really make the photo ‘juicy’. Think about it – if you photographed a bowl of fruit, you’d want to add non-intrusive color correction to bring out the deep purple in those plums and grapes…use Color correction – make your footage ‘pop out’ and appear more juicy and appetizing.

The framing looks still. Looks like you shot it on a tripod – which is great. But was your pan and tilt head broken? why not introduce a slow, ramped pan from behind the trees to make the shot more interesting?

Finally – i’m going to talk about filters. Use one! – look up ND Grads, Polarizers… With a bit of practice you’ll get there.. but i’m afraid the Reviewer is right – this item needed rejecting because any cat can take this with an iphone.

Good Luck !

Aside from the Power/Elite… is there anywhere authors can buy an envato t-shirt?

I think this would be a good thing for envato marketp[lace – branded bags, t-shirts and baseball caps

it’s REALLY sad when i hear buyers making this kind of mistake. Then they rate it a 1-star, and never buy from Videohive again – all because they failed to read before they buy.

Estebanc14 – i feel sorry for yuou – buying both the normal version AND the extended version thinking you could edit it – perhaps put your own video in those world map placeholders…

ah-ah :( – should have read here:

Perhaps Vhive should have a quick ‘buyers’ guide to initiate newbie buyers the difference between AE, Motion Graphics, Stock Footage, etc.

But i can’t blame the buyer entirely – Looking at this Digital Tactics item, it does seem like you should/could be able to edit it. And i would say the Author is slightly to blame here because he could have made it a bit clearer in the preview and the item description that it is non-editable motion graphics.

But you know as they say – Buyer Beware…. Who knows – perhaps it was meant to look like an AE project… perhaps it was a ‘Digital Tactic’ to get you to buy it ;)

As someone who works in music licensing, i would say that AudioJungle got this 100% spot on.

And this multi-licence model is permutable to videohive too.

We all remember when a famous TV advert used part of a Videohive Template!

And there’s also been feature blockbuster films that have used H.U.Ds, infographics and gadgets from AE projects sold right here on the ‘Hive.

So about time the big commercial end users cough up! at the very least, (as someone here rightly said) Videohive should have at the very least, a different licence for use on You tube, and use on Broadcast TV or feature film
