Hi everyone, We have made a small update to the VH review process. You no longer need to add watermarks to the preview files for the AE, Apple Motion and Cinema 4D categories with immediate effect.

We’re aware of the extra time and step it takes for authors to watermark their work and we are continually looking to ways we can help speed-up the file preparation process for you.

We hope that by removing the watermark requirement on these categories we can make the review process easier for you. If you have any questions about this change, or have any other suggestions on how the file preparation process could be streamlined, please feel free to add them here. Thanks!

Yay! Now as a buyer I don’t need to have a watermark distorting part of the video!

I can see a better quality representation of what I am purchasing :D

Will I get rejected if I add watermarks? Nope. This is just an option to make things easier for authors. If you have one that you worry could get stolen without a watermark, you’re more than welcome to add one.

Please educate your reviewers about this, people get soft rejected because they use the watermark.

While the transition still happens, it’s hard to determine who is not aware of this change and who is leaving watermark purposely. If you have applied watermark purposely – please add a simple explanation in “message to reviewer” box and you will save yourself from a possible rejection.

that doesn’t really make sense to me. You could just write a message to the user with the link to this thread but not reject him. This does only add confusion and adding the watermark should make no harm so no need to waste the authors time rerendering the preview.
