Made it at first pretty quickly: 85 . Did it again 15 minutes and one cigarette later: 11 ! Just take your time while you do it to get decent results.

After all the authors will be gone eMvato will be probably worth just a couple of thousands $, i just hope that Bhuval will buy it and bring it back to commissions!

You are right Creattive we only need to hear that Envato is the seller and we are paid through commissions, which is basically what 4millions member has always thought since 8 years. I would suggest to Envato to take his own responsabilities and leave everything as it always has been, if authors will be paying because Envato is getting greedy then good luck Envato, you will witness a mass exodus of authors and is going to be way too late when you will realize you were wrong.

Am I the only one here who doesn’t see at all a bright future for Envato?

September has been a rollercoaster but still it’s the best month ever in terms of sales and earnings after my previous best month ( AUG 2014). Compared to sept 2013 earnings are doubled, hope this trend keeps on going every year!

Good news! Till now I always had to include 2 clips into one because the lenght was below 10sec so this is a good thing! How much will be priced a 5sec clip instead?

1 hour drive, 2 hours hiking till the summit of the mountain with heavy equipment and survival things to carry on my shoulders, find the right spot, waiting for the right time at sunset, set the camera to shoot 3 bracketed photos in full Raw (26mb each on a 5dMarkII ) to blend in HDR, calculate interval and how many shot i wanna take, finally push the button to start taking photos while watching mother nature’s show. After 1 hour sun has set, it’s getting dark and I’m in the middle of nowhere, pack my stuff again, walk down to my car with a torch trying to don’t fall down, reach my car and start driving back home. Get home, download my 1300 full raw photos for 30Gb on my computer, start the batch process to blend in HDR which normally takes 6/7 hours for 5k resolution, I do it overnight, so I can go to sleep. Wake up the next day with 400 hdr photos, deflicker, color correct and fix them as I want, render the HD 1080 video again in another hour and finally, after basically no effort because i just had to push one button, I can watch my 5$ clip!

EmericLB, I understand your frustration.

Hey Panda,

I don’t own a Red so that’s not a problem for me. :)

If I work with Videohive is simply because the revenue I make is proportional to the effort I put in making my videos, despite the price is so ridicolously low.

I agree with you when you say that one should find another marketplace if you wanna sell at higher prices, that’s also the reason why stock footage quality on videohive is so low: because 95% of filmmakers out there are not going to invest their money and time in producing videos priced at 5$, it’s a matter of pride and dignity plus, we need to make a living too, so unless you are a stock agency like Pressmaster or XnitroX you can forget to make good money in here.

I’m ashamed to tell people that I sell videos at 5$ because their first reaction is laughing, and for the same reason Videohive has already lost Mwilson, who deleted 90% of his portfolio from here and decided to work with a marketplace that gives him some dignity.

That’s what I’m saying, this pricing is making great authors leaving rather than joining this community.
