When working with multiple 3D layers or “3D text / logo” the Motion Blur is a HUGE resource hog.

I did some testing some time ago with a 1 second long composition in 1920×1080 resolution. 10 Layers of 3D text with some camera animations and the results were pretty staggering.

Without Motion Blur – 40 seconds.

With Motion Blur – over 7 minutes.

I’m not familiar with the Elegant Extrusion and i’m sure Motionrevolver will help you every way he can,but in case the Motion Blur is turned on you could try turning it off.

My advice would be to save up as much money as you can before going full time on Videohive.

There will be months when you won’t sell that well and it takes a lot of the pressure off from feeling forced to create stuff if you have several months of rent etc saved up.

Thanks for sharing the stats guys.Some very impressive numbers there and definitely proves that once you nail down the right focus group,you can get some great “registered” results.

I take referrals / marketing very seriously.Have tried a bunch of different things with different results and actually share the same 0.8% percentage on clickthrough – registered.

If you are just starting with referring make sure you have your links in these places :

Adobe Exchange – Number one source for referrals to all my files according to the envato analytics.

YouTube & Vimeo – Adding your video previews here generates some clicks and also have landed me several freelance jobs.

Without spending a dime you can get 1000+ clicks per month.

I have also ran some banner ads on different sites and the best results came from places which are completely focused on After Effects – No surprise there.General design / freelance blogs might give you more impressions for your money and good amount of clickthroughs,but the interest in depositing and actually buying a file seems to be low.

Here is a month i advertised on AETUTS +

July 2010 4579 Clickthroughs 65 Registered Members 24 Deposits

And here is when i had two banners on general design / freelance blogs (illustration,photgraphy,photoshop,animation etc.)

January 2011 19332 Clickthroughs 29 Registered Members 20 Deposits

The difference in clickthrough – registered ratio is pretty huge.So IF you are ready to spend some money on advertising,make sure you pick a place where After Effects fans hang out.

As far as how much to spend on a banner,i have now drawn the line at 125$

Hope this helps.

Very disappointed to hear something like this is going on.Only the buyers who have used the file have the right to give negative feedback.I think constructive criticism from fellow authors is very welcome,just try to keep a positive tone with it :)

Yes Inception should definitely get some love,enjoyed that one a lot.Christopher Nolan scoring the Oscar for writing would be nice.

Also in the documentaries section is a pretty interesting movie : “Exit through the gift shop” by Banksy and Jamie D’Cruz – It’s about street art and is very entertaining.

During the recent months i’ve been watching a lot of movies and usually haven’t cared about the Oscars too much,but this year i’m pretty eager to see who wins.

Any big movie fans out there? What are your predictions / who do you think should win?

Going to start off with Leading Actor : Colin Firth – no doubt about it.Stunning in King’s Speech.

Natalie Portman was great in the Black Swan,i think she deserves it.

Haven’t made up my mind about best picture or direction yet.

...and just to get the RAGE going i hope Social Network leaves empty handed…i just didn’t get the fuss and all the hype…very disappointing movie.
