Bought some pizza on an app called Grubhub. Best pizza I’ve ever had. I don’t know if it was the pizza or the fact that it was with my very first earnings. I’m thinking the latter. :)

1. Particle Spark Logo was reported fake by numerous authors 2. Previous threads regarding this issue were locked and staff encouraged authors to contact support 3. ? Support did nothing I guess ? 4. Original author uploaded project again

The original file was named “From Emptiness”, and can be found on webarchive under GrandTerr’s profile if you go back about a year. I’m not sure why Envato didn’t at least cease all sales from the other project until investigation was complete (if there ever was an investigation).

My point was being that Videohive has grown so much in these past few years, there’s obviously not as big of a problem in rejecting files without going in to the specifics as you guys are making it seem to be. Again, most of the time if your project is hard rejected, a simple “short” form isn’t going to do the trick. Even if this is filled out, your updates may not be good enough for approval the second time around, which will then result in you needing MORE feedback, and the cycle repeats. Actually, this happens quite frequently with the people I’ve helped. At this point the reviewers will be, “holding your hand” or “teaching you” as others have stated before.

Here’s the real kicker: You guys have been at this for many months now. Envato has an entire website with currently over 200 pages of detailed tutorials dedicated to improve your quality. You have thousands of projects on here that can be used for tutorial purposes, and you have authors who are willing to take the time out of their busy schedule to help you on your journey. A few notes from a reviewer seems very minuscule compared to the ample amount of resources that are given to you all around.

Anyway, that’s all I have to say on the subject. I wish you guys well in your journey and success no matter where your projects reside. :)

Lol within the year I’ve been here videohive has grown ALOT, so I highly doubt rejecting templates without going into specific details will be its destruction, especially since more and more projects have been approved lately. You guys keep comparing other sites qualification but bottom line is this is videohive, a community that’s growing in both quality quantity.

Usually they reject your project because there’s more than 1 or 2 main things wrong with it, so even if they were to list just those 1 or 2 things, there are still a long list of other things they feel are wrong.
It is very simple to write professional reject, not automated message.
There are few evaluation criteria:
1) Technical bugs;
- Project collection error (absent files, wrong paths, etc.);
- Preparation error (no help files, bad archive, bad folders structure, no fonts, etc.);
- Bad quality of graphics (banding, aliasing, etc.);
2) Design bugs;
- Scene and objects lighting issues;
- Texturing or masking issues;
- Motion or timings issues;
- Color combination issues;
- Quality of models or shapes;
Voila! With these criteria I can write accurate reject that will help author to improve template;
For example: “1) Help instructions must be improved; 2) Motion speed must be improved; 3) Your 3d model too simple and have wrong light and shadow combination”. That’s all! Nobody asking for teaching, we are asking for accurate reject reasons in a e-mail.

1) Everything you just stated are for projects that are usually soft rejected files. Things that are technical errors such as broken links, small technical issues, are brought up in details during a soft rejection because those are light fixes.

2) Again, if you were hard rejected it’s due to a NUMEROUS amount of issues. Even if they were to choose just one or two of those issues as you’ve listed above, they’ll still reject you for those other errors that wouldn’t have been mentioned and you’d be right back to being confused, angry, and posting on the forums.

VH requirements are quite clear to see. check this for examples of what they accept for sale http://videohive.net/category/after-effects-project-files
It is the latest accepted templates. I can find a lot of bugs in accepted templates and I do not like some of them. Please check the list of quality requirements of Shutterstock (for example).
But this isn’t Shutterstock, it’s Videohive. Different standards.


I think that you are not accepting the critics as you should, it is not easy to critic a work that someone post here, but it is very helpful. That is why there are low number of people doing it, because they are trying to help and in much cases they are receiving rude replies.
The reason why people are getting rude towards reviewers is because they don’t tell you what is wrong with a project they deem to reject. An artist can’t improve or correct something if they don’t know what the problem is. This is one of the problems that for me is a real sore spot that actual Staff employed by Envato can make it a rule that the review team needs to give a rejection reason, not list Evey single problem with a project but 1 or 2 main things. If the review team does not like rude replies or rude responses then they should give a reason PERIOD! A hard Rejection with a standard auto reject they have been spitting out to authors for the past decade is meaningless to an author it tells you nothing and is NOT CONSTRUCTIVE!

Usually they reject your project because there’s more than 1 or 2 main things wrong with it, so even if they were to list just those 1 or 2 things, there are still a long list of other things they feel are wrong.

Add some camera movement, maybe dolly out? I also don’t like the font used for, “easy to edit” but I seriously think it was rejected because the camera is static.

No sales in the last 24 hours. Just released a new project and all of a sudden sales stop. How backwards.
