Hi all,

Today we’ve added this feature to 4 more areas of the marketplaces: Popular lists, Portfolios, Favorites and Collections!

Thanks for all your great feedback so far :)

Good news :)

Btw, I’m curious: does it mean that you’ve moved those parts of the sites to the new search engine? We’re eager to get some more functionalities on the Portfolio pages, and if I’m not wrong, I’ve read somewhere earlier that that’s what’s stopping you.
Not yet unfortunately! We wanted to get the add to cart feature on these pages as quickly as possible so we added it to the old code. Updating these pages with the new search engine and features will be a bigger piece of work.

Okay, thank you for the explanation ;) I just hope you do plan to update these pages with new search engine and finally add features we’ve been suggesting for many years now. :)

Just be aware that, when you use search to find item in your portfolio, “download” link disappears :/

Ok, onda cu se potruditi da osmislim nesto zanimljivo za okupljanje u Nisu – osim u slucaju da se predomislite za lokaciju :)

Ali, tome cu moci tek za mesec-i-nesto da se posvetim, zbog nekih drugih obaveza. Taman da dogovorimo nesto za kasno leto, pocetak jeseni, kad ne bude previse vruce :)

Ljudi, da li je neko raspolozan za zvanicno Envato okupljanje? Pricao sam sa nekolicinom autora da na jesen organizujemo neko druzenje, a da prijavimo kao zvanicni Envato dogadjaj.

Posto sam ja iz Nisa, jedino tu sam u mogucnosti da organizujem druzenje, na primer u nekoj kafani.

Da li ima zainteresovanih da dodju na takvo druzenje u Nis? Ili, mozda, nekog zainteresovanog da organizuje druzenje tog tipa na nekoj drugoj lokaciji? :)

I am also experiencing very low sales in the past few days, even for weekend+Monday combo. I thought it had to do something with me editing old items and search engine not picking them up… But I guess it’s just a dry period, eh? :)

Thanks to this awesome tool, I managed to go through my entire VideoHive portfolio (3600+ files!!!) and set recently introduced attributes – in just 3 days!

Too bad single author can’t be voted Community superstar twice, because SchwartzSound definitely deserves it! :)

Oh, and also – wouldn’t it make sense to add “Underwater” option for the “Setting” attribute?

Hi @Urbazon – thanks for the suggestions related to additional settings. We had a lot of discussion internally about the Setting attribute. We initially had a lot more options included, but found that the list of possible options kept growing as we thought of more specific settings (e.g. urban, rural, coastal etc). We decided to go with a reduced set of options to make it very specific about whether the footage is indoors or outdoors. Other attributes/descriptions for setting or environment can then be captured in the tags/keyword list.

Having said that, Underwater definitely makes sense to add – technically underwater is either outdoors (ocean) or indoors (swimming pool) (just kidding :) ) but it makes sense to add this option in, so thanks for the suggestion!

I’m less sure about the vehicle in motion option – this feels more like a description of the setting of the shoot rather than a technique for movement of the camera itself. Happy to be overruled on this though if authors feel it is worth adding in?

Remember the aim of these attributes is to improve discoverability of items for your buyers. If you feel that your buyers would specifically want items that are shot from a moving vehicle then it makes sense to add it in. If this is a very rare requirement, perhaps it makes sense to keep this information in the tags and description?

Well, swimming pool can be either indoors or outdoors; however, fish tanks tend to be indoors :)))

Joking aside, I think that “underwater” definitely stands out from others you mentioned (urban, rural, etc…) because it is definitely different setting – physically, not just thematically :)

Regarding the “vehicle in motion” option – I actually initially asked for help to define which of the available options to use; I am not sure either whether it should be added or not as a separate option. More so because there are different kinds of vehicles – at least, it’s not the same for land vehicles and aircrafts… It might have sense for buyers to demand these kind of camera movement specifically, but I see how it can complicate things…

But, that said, if this option will not be added, can we at least discuss about which of the available options to use? Sometimes, the camera is mounted on the vehicle itself and it might be considered as a lockdown, but since the vehicle is moving, the camera motion is introduced – hence it’s not a lockdown :) Or, if the camera is handheld, or stabilized (steadicam) or even on a tripod, where possible, there is still vehicle movement which creates different end result than using mentioned options on still surface – the camera movement is different.

Maybe it makes sense to add just a single general option “vehicle in movement”, but without going into details (boat, car, train, etc…). We do have “aerial” for aircrafts, after all :)

3 days to go and no entries at all?? Is it possible to hope for an extension of contest time?

Jeez, you almost got me there :))) :P

Deadline is 11th of June, not May :)

I would like to point out something: there is already confusion between “crab” and “dolly” movement types. I was also doing it wrong, but after digging around the Internet I finally found some texts which explain it clearly. Just look at the VideoHive library and you’ll see that many people use “dolly” for crab shots.

Maybe you should consider creating a quick guide after all…?
