It might also be in combination of your project file, make sure it is nicely setup and easy to use for the end user. Precomps hierarchy’s are important. I think it is the combination with the end result that made the decision, i could be wrong of course.

Best thing is to learn from it and try again. Good luck!

It’s important to know what’s been uploaded to Videohive recently and to make sure that your work looks nothing like it. There has been a spate of work in that style recently and I think that if you make something that looks to all intents and purposes the same, but doesn’t have the same design, animation, quality or finish, then there’s a good chance your work may get rejected.

From the reviewer comment, it sounds like several things didn’t make the grade. Have you downloaded any other authors projects… free file of the month for example, to see how the projects are arranged and structured? If you want to look at some user guides, you’ll find most of mine linked on my item pages.

Good luck.

Thank you all for the answers,but the structure of the project is like all my approved projects,pre-comps in folders and Video tutorials. I have to admit that I hadn’t see all these projects,I might try to uploaded it later,or else,it will end up as a freebie in my website X_X

I think that every week many not-unique projects are approved and some of them are rejected, for example all these epic trailers…

I expect quite a few epic trailers get rejected too. I think the key thing is whether you’re bringing something new to a category that’s well covered. If the answer is no, maybe or not sure; there’s a danger that your file’s going to be rejected.

There are masses of ideas that no-one’s had yet, avenues that no-one’s explored.

Why not do one of those instead. With a copy, the most you’re going to get is a handful of sales. Having a new idea is a higher risk strategy, perhaps, but you at least have the chance that sales of your file will really take off.

So what do you suggest me to do from now on with this project? I really worked hard on this one…

My advice is to try not to look at videohive too much, but try to create your own personal style. It’s definitly not easy, but I think trying to develop your own style will not only help at videohive, but in your future works, if your planning to do this till the rest of your life :)

agree with generator, the look and feel, heck even using identical shades of blue and paper texture, looks far too similar to the original work.

it’s not fair to people who come up with original ideas, to create something that’s very close to someone else’s original. in my industry, my competitors often try and copy me, it bothers me off a lot, but in the end, I win because people see me coming up with new products/sites that have my own “look” which the competitors cannot keep up with. so creating your own unique “look” and brand is important for long term success.

felt’s points are exactly right.
