Hi bilalmarri,

Before this, I used reference video Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in my preview file. But they said “You’re not allowed to use music videos or celebrities in your preview video”. And I removed them. Some other items in VideoHive use this reference video and pass !, like this item, but I’m not allowed, i dont know why ?

Thank you bilalmarri.

What i meant with accusation is that you’re giving false witness. Here I collected some screenshots from your preview to illustrate it:

I see where your confusion comes from. A comma or “and” is missing in rejection reason. That sentence should sound ”...doesn’t meet our current minimum technical AND quality requirements…”

It’s a good thing to get input and comments from fellow authors. We strongly encourage to do that, but please be honest and don’t accuse reviewers by giving half true information to your fellow authors. Bieber and Redfoo has nothing to do with Victoria’s Secret show.

To answer your original question – Wording can be tricky, but the point is that quality requirements are pretty much the same across all categories so resubmitting the same file to another category is not going to be a solution. In fact quite the opposite. Resubmitting without improvements is not allowed and you can get your account banned if you keep doing it. To resubmit a previously rejected item – it must be significantly improved such that it qualifies as a new item.

I can see how having a discussion without staff input might lead to controversy and interesting theories, but most of them are not true. I’ve been following this thread since it appeared. I’m not authorized to give any official responses and I’m not aware what the official response would be, but I’ve done what I can to draw attention to this problem in management level.

in my opinion the biggest problem is, that there are too many items on every plattform and i canĀ“t get visable – only with new items for some days…

Do you think:

a) buyer comes to Envato with 20$ in pocket thinking where could i spend my money? Oh let’s buy something from front page.

b) buyer comes to Envato with need of something specific and uses search to find it.

Personal brand and recognizability is important, so does follower base, but most important is quality, targeted items, with optimized previews and descriptions so that it’s easy to find them.

Can u change payoneer accounts on one envato account. My friend used to withdraw cash but now he’s unable to do that so in order to get money out we’ve ordered another payoneer card, but when u withdraw via payoneer it says ur account is already setup. Can you change that ?

It’s not something people on forum could help you. Please contact support

I only know of placdarms who included the audio for one of his files shortly before it got forbidden.

In fact I did it shortly AFTER the license change. I made an agreement with the author that I will be purchasing extended license + Mix the audio with my own sound FX so that no one could use it outside of my project and he was OK with that.

It’s a requirement that every project file has to come with included Help File and we review them to make sure they do. Help files mostly deal with project structure and explain where you can change those things. Most projects are set up in a way that you only need to drop in your logo/footage, edit text end you’re done. However you would still need to have the basic understanding of importing assets, draging/dropping them, rendering the final output etc. If this is your very first time with After Effects you might need to get some basic training to understand the project panel, timeline and other project windows.

I would suggest that you give it a try and in case included help file doesn’t cover some basic software usage aspects then check this free beginners course: http://cgi.tutsplus.com/series/welcome-to-after-effects--ae-28707

Hello guys , I wanted to know if Videohive accepts After effects CC projects ? Thank you !

Not at the moment. It should happen sometime soon. Not sure if there will be any big announcement when that happens, but you can keep an eye on that attribution window on the submission page where software versions are specified. When you see CC in there you will know that the day has come. So far some have mistaken the old AE 7.0 as new CC because CC comes after CS6, but i guess those are guys that hasn’t been around long enough to experience CS4, CS3, AE 7 and older versions.

There is not such thing as hard-rejection and a very hard rejection. There are 3 possible choices – Approve, soft-reject or hard-reject. If file is on the edge one reviewer might see it’s potential and put it on the side of the edge where soft-rejection lies and another reviewer see it on the other side. There are quality standards that reviewers follow, but they are not and can’t be lined out till the smallest detail that applies uniquely to every situation. So some parts are left to personal decision which might differ slightly.

I just read your rejection message and I believe it’s very encouraging and even explains what to do if you want to keep improving this file. So don’t get upset. Work until you’ve made the best you can and give it another try.
