I see people cheating the thumbnail :D Right now you can’t see the diference, if browsing in grid format. Here is an example: \\
OMG, already? Some people are way too fast to “hack” the system… :/

Thanks so much for catching and sharing that, smartik / urbazon. Just a note/reminder that this is prohibited. I just updated A step-by-step guide to the upload process to make it more clear. The update says:

Thumbnail > “You are also not permitted to artificially add any official Envato Market graphical assets to your thumbnails, e.g. community badges or trending assets. This is considered “gaming the system” and works against our terms and conditions.”

While we hope this helps clarify guidelines for all authors, please don’t hesitate to contact Support (not in the forums please) if you see/hear of any authors breaking this guideline. I will also personally see to it that they go to bed without any supper. ;)

Are you looking for totally free, or are you open to purchasing a font? Here are a few similar fonts you can purchase and use commercially (this doesn’t mean give the font away to anyone else of course). Always check licensing for yourself before purchasing:

Calvin Medium:

Lionel Text Diesel Regular:

Air Factory Bold:

Celias Medium:

Good luck font finding and with your next project!

Was this change made live? Is the progress bar removed? I haven’t uploaded any file this week and I was wondering if envato still made the change. I still hope that envato will change their mind considering all the authors before me who considered this “fix” as not a viable solution.
Currently it’s still in place, but not for long though.

Our announcement was posted 7 days ago, we said that it would be released within 2 weeks, and it looks like it is currently scheduled for deployment next week. So no delays to report yet from our anticipated schedule but we will of course provide updates along the way if anything changes.

Andrew!!!! You have no avatar! You can’t post on the forums without an avatar!!! :D
That’s his actual picture – he is gray and doesn’t have a face – don’t judge him :)

WebSmacker is absolutely right. We actually took a picture of Andrew yesterday at his desk while he wrote this forum announcement. Here’s the proof, can you spot him busy at work at his desk?

Lets say, I have a video clip and i want to add alpha channel on it, so it would be saved as *.mov (png squence) with alpha channel. Size of that file would be rather huge and one could have more than one in zip archive, and that would probably exceed upload size limit. So instead, video files could be saved as *.mov (photo jpg) sequence plus another file which would be used for “lumma matte” to artificially created alpha channel on our *mov (photo jpg) sequence. I hope this make any sense? :) Question is, do we add both files to total number of video clips, or just one? This question might be irrelevant, but when customer ask “why did you say 2 clips and there’s just one inside” or vice versa its wont be funny anymore. Pics as example Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Hi 3eka,

I think I understand the main question there: Again, the number of “clips” we’re asking for pertains to unique items/clips in your .zip. So as you appear to be talking about an extra, supporting file for the main/original file, that’s not what we’re interested in for the “clips” field. “Clips” is looking to obtain the number of unique clips (on VideoHive) and unique sound effect files (on AudioJungle).

So for example, on AudioJungle, an author could submit a sound effect of a door slamming shut, and 3 variations of the same sound. That would be one unique clip as it’s one, ultimate sound with multiple variations.. Another author could submit a pack of 3 sounds from around the kitchen – a food mixer sound effect, an ice maker sound effect, and toast popping out the toaster. That would be 3 clips as each sound is completely different.

Hope this example helps!

so if i make a bundle of original, 30 seconds edit , and 60 seconds edit. it counted as 3?

Hello waiwai,

The key word is unique. So if all those edits are from the same, original item, then you only have 1 unique clip. Variations are not considered separate clips.

Hope this helps! :)
