Pricing should never be based on how much time you spent creating it. — For example to build windows xp it took 50,000 engineers and 5 years, but still it is sold for $120

good example!

anyway, I have project called Retro Brand Show Promo, and I worked very long time to make it. it is all made in AE, all editable. While other 3D prjects are prerendered and there are just very few things that you can change. So.. and the price given to this project is 15$...

I see that the price for this project is 20$. They increased the price with 5$ after complaining?

Congratulate me for my bad english.

@ Krazy Kartoons… I think your work is the kind of work that doesn’t sell so well as stock.

That doesn’t mean it’s bad… in fact quite the opposite. You need to play to your uniqueness and build up a base of clients that appreciate what you do and are prepared to pay for that. Maybe get in touch with some classic animation studios.

Stock tends to favour quick, repeatable and generic. This is not to do Videohive down. This has always been the case. Some projects manage to rise above this, but as a general rule, I think this holds true.

So I don’t think it’s anything to be upset about. You just need a different audience.

And what’s more, as After Effectsy things become ever cheaper, more accessible, more numerous and more similar looking, I expect that the clients with the money will start turning towards more classical and perhaps more effort-intensive media to once again make themselves distinct against the background noise. This will take a few years, since many of them probably aren’t aware that this is even happening yet.

Felt_tips I guess it’s true, my VH items / productions are not really useful for most of VH audience for now, But don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining or anything. I’m not upset at all actually I’m very happy with Envato’s community, just wondered about it because one of my goals in VH is to make something useful and different then the regular everyday-projects, I think that somebody should bring something fresh from time to time and I would be happy to be that one, maybe in the future when I’ll have more items it will attract new buyers… or not ;)

BTW – I’m already the owner of a small In-House Production studio called: “Krazy Kartoons” for 2D Animation and Soundtracks since 2006 but only lately I’ve started to focus working with clients around the world.

Prices of our productions are not cheap at all and prices are very dynamic compare to the specific client. So when I compare the work I do for a fresh VH product it only made me wonder and that’s another reason for my thread.

I appreciate all the comments guys, Thank you for your time and support :)

I’d say that length of project has minor impact on price. I have rejected some 3-4min long slideshows because they were too boring to watch and couldn’t price them more than 10-15$ meanwhile there are some below minute priced at 25$ or more.

yes on paper sounds good but if u browse u`ll see that the reality is different
