I just had a jackpot. Someone purchased extended license of my project using my referral link and I got all 100%

As always this is too good to be true. Well, I have to add that this happened right after a sale reversal of another project. :D

I’m a full time fiverr seller myself and I don’t sell any illegal content. Saying that fiverr is meant for selling illegal shit is just really dumb. There are very honest and creative people there and yes, also some rats that sell go and take the shortcut by selling others work.

I have a good connection with fiverr’s customer support and I can get any gig removed within 24 hours if you just give me the link to the gig, and the link of the original videohive template.

Kind regards, Jerome

Unfortunately there are so many illegal gigs and Fiverr policy is pretty encouraging for illegal stuff that they outperform any good gigs that Fiverr might have and most people on VH hates that place. Anyway. i just e-mailed you links to 18 gigs that are based on my projects. Good luck with taking them down. I wasn’t lucky enough.

I would never use Payoneer card for purchases. It’s way too hard to keep track of all kinds of hidden fees. When I first used the card I tried to withdraw money. Apparently my exchange rate calculations were wrong and I tried to take out more money than I had on the card. I tried once without sucess, then reduced the ammount by 10$ and tried again – no sucess, reduced by 10$ more and tried again. Still no sucess. Went home to see where is the problem and found out I was actually charged comission for each unsucessful attempt. That’s when i decided I’ll use that card as little as possible which were basically – take out all my money as soon as it arrives.

International money transfer is expensive. Don’t let them fool yourself believing someone could do that for cheep. They have their own methods to cover the expenses. If you are getting that for low price – then someone else is covering those expenses through all kinds of fees. Be smart and don’t be one who covers expenses for others.

Hello, coder and developer ninjas. I have created few websites using PHP, MySQL and HTML, but i would consider myself a total beginner in this field. Instead video is my occupation and ever since I saw Facebook LookBack video project I’ve been thinking about tech behind it.

Can you share some guesses or potential ideas how they made it possible to take raw image material and render in a nice video authomatically. Could something similar be used to work with AfterEffects templates? Would it require some custom made rendering engine or could it somehow communicate with Existing After Effects or Adobe Media Encoder on the server to do the job? I know there are third party services that provides video encoding services through API. Would something like that be possible with video rendering?

As you see I’m clueless about the tech side, but I’m interested to hear opinions from people who knows the ins and outs of web coding and might shed some light in the process.

I doubt ThemeForest reviewers would ever check Item Discussion subcategory of VideoHive. You might want to repost this to a correct category under ThemeForest to get more qualified response either from reviewers or suggestions from fellow authors.

First of all this is old thread you are bringing back to life. His item been approved almost month ago.

Secondly – as I explained in the original thread you are linking to – this is obviously the case when author is not aware of the requirement change. He is not rejected because he tried to protect his rights by applying watermark.

Will I get rejected if I add watermarks? Nope. This is just an option to make things easier for authors. If you have one that you worry could get stolen without a watermark, you’re more than welcome to add one.
Please educate your reviewers about this, people get soft rejected because they use the watermark.

While the transition still happens, it’s hard to determine who is not aware of this change and who is leaving watermark purposely. If you have applied watermark purposely – please add a simple explanation in “message to reviewer” box and you will save yourself from a possible rejection.

Hi everyone . One question. Can i use google pictures in my after effects projects? For example: I downloaded cloud picture from google pictures , then that picture i am imported to project,d? some changes: color correction, masking .... Can i do that ? Thank You.

Google doesn’t create pictures. Google finds and lists them. they come from different sources, but source is not the key thing in decidig whether you can use the image or not. License is.

Please check the license for each image that you want to use. You need a license that allows commercial use to use a particular image in your preview video. To use image as an asset, cut out parts of it and resell the final outcome with your project you need a license that allows commercial distribution. For example you can find images on Flickr. When you do a regular search on the top right corner “Advanced search” link will appear. Then check all 3 checkboxes down at Creative Commons: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p2z736abdeea87w/Screenshot%202014-03-27%2009.08.31.png

If you take some random unlicensed image and cut out parts, adjust it or do some other manipulations with the image – it doesn’t change it’s license. You might feel that you have created unique result from the original image, but if it wasn’t allowed to manipulate it in the first place – you’re not allowed to use the final outcome, too. Your task is not to make the image different than source and hope that you will get away with it, but use it according to the license.

If you can’t find license – contact author to ask for it or consider it as not licensed for any manipulations or commercial uses.
