In my opinion,it all depends on the freebie.Nobody’s saying that you have to give out your best stuff for free but something like a script,cool expression driven animation or a Particular preset can be a great way to get noticed and drive people to check out your other (commercial) work.
Good discussion going on here,i know i will think twice in the future what to give out for free and what it might lead to.
Maybe a bit too early to say…but what do you guys think about the title.CINEMATIC bundle would suggest that the bundle focuses on cinematic style files,instead of being a “all around” videohive bundle.
Which one would you rather see? A one that focuses on specific style,or an all around bundle with all kinds of files?
Congratulations RZDESIGN ! You have some very original,quality designs and it’s great to see you get the recognition you deserve
Yeah thanks for the heads up! Can’t wait to see it.
Seems that Inlifethrill and his files are gone. What happened?
I’m not completely sure i understand the question.Yes you can build your project in a way so that it easy for a customer to just drag and drop the audio in there and the timing is correct,but like said…the original file or any parts of it can not be sold with your file.
You are not allowed to re-sell or distribute the audio files.Using them in your preview video is fine,but you can’t include them in the final project file you send to videohive.

In my opinion these cross-marketplace promotions are fine.”Shameless self promotions” are usually pretty easy to spot.
cyzer makes a good point though,but if a videohive author with 40 projects and 1 audio file comes in here asking everyone to check out his music..it’s a pretty easy call
