:sunglasses: WOW ! Only now see that I am in top! Cool! With compare in year ago, this november was a less sales, but little more earnings, because probably few new files I have now. Some numbers:

November 2010 409 Sales $1,6k

November 2011 361 Sales $1,64k

Its Great! But all the rest months in year is very low sales due to my seasonal animations. With lower sales tendency soon need to change my profession.. Retrain to night stricter and learn html5 probably? Ohh, I am too old for this.. Future is foggy..

Well, the dream for me is to sell enough of – whatever – to enable me to give up the freelancing and just design/build stuff for online sales. I’ll learn simply whatever I have to to achieve this goal. I was so excited last February or whenever I discovered Envato (purely by accident), but I have to say that all the talk about Flash sales dropping and people painting a bleak future for Flash has kind of soured the program for me, although I will probably continue to release the odd file, while learning and doing other things.

Like Kontramax, I sometimes feel like I’m too old for this :D

PS. Kontramax, if you need a bit of inspiration for learning AE, I’d recommend watching some of Andrew Kramer’s tutorials over at videocopilot.net. He was the guy to get me into AE, because he’s truly a master of his art and it’s also really entertaining watching his tuts too.

Thanks for the link, Mannequin!

Thanks tsafi, really nice of you to say so. It took awhile, but I’d always wanted do something big combining the 3 programs – they are my favourites :) I’ll probably have to do a bloody Wordpress one as well now! ;)

No, I can’t see it being easy either and I don’t intend to try just yet – still got a lot of study to do :)

Thanks for the compliment also, Kontramax – but I don’t want to hijack your thread ;)
