apparently there’s a term called “Summer slowdown” a friend told me about yesterday (most of you probably heard about it already)

So after a bit of google this interesting post came up: http://www.c2m2a.com/2012/05/4-Tips-for-the-Summer-Slowdown-How-To-Pick-Up-Sales/
and this one too: http://www.buildingkeystones.com/2011/05/dealing-with-summer-sales-slow-down/
Its nice to know we’re all in the same boat and this is a very common phenomenon for people who work in online marketing of any type.

Vimeo certainly converts the videos that you upload, so its almost impossible to get the exact color range of an uncompressed quicktime, The easiest way for me is to export an Animation codec from after effects, then open the file in Quicktime Pro 7 (or adobe media encoder) and use the x264 codec which you can download free here: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/20273/x264-quicktime-codec

Its a bit better for me when it comes to gammas and such, there are more options to fiddle with, and the file size is usually smaller than the regular h.264 - give it a go and see how it works…

Since this thread had started, the project we’re talking about sold over 7 copies (have to keep the exact number hidden to avoid pointing fingers) Funny thing is, he even copied the same grammar mistakes (“he haven’t heard about…”) which makes it obvious Lets ask ourselves this question: Should this be encouraging to new authors? is this the message we want to receive? that if we come up with something original and someone copies our script word by word it will be approved by staff and start selling?

What happened to copyright infringements? to that lovely authoring quiz we all had to take? is it forgotten already? Here’s a reminder http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/112/9/an-introduction-to-the-marketplaces-for-authors Copyright infringement fellas, its right over there, The item must NOT be based on any other item.

Ok, each one is allowed to think the way they want to, excuse me for trying to impose a personal opinion.

There are many copies in this world which was made much better than the originals.

Really? care to share some with me? It’s just like saying you can imitate a person better than himself which is a paradox.

Once its a copy, a rip off, a replica – it’s impossible to be better than the source, of course you can exaggerate the source, and add another flavor to the mix – but then you’re already creating something new which makes it somehow original.

originality is unbeaten cyzer, you being the original skilled author you are should know it better than anyone :)

then it must be a server issue, for some reason youtube or vimeo videos stream way faster for me… Thank you for your input.
