Of course, I agree with everyone, but try to be little less harsh. There is a possibility that someone made something the same by coincidence. It can happen.
After all, there are 10930 after effects projects on videohive.

NO it can not. I don’t believe that. They use even the same camera postitions. Trapcode Form is so powerful, that you can create so many different Styles and Project. maupa
Maupa has a point.
Suppose a project only had 5 creative elements and each creative element only had 5 choices of how to go about that creative element. Even in that very simplified world, there are 3125 possible ways that project could be created.
In a world where a project has 30 creative elements with maybe 10 ways of going about each, there’s a one in several trillion-trillion chance of any two projects being alike.
I saw the preview video as well and my instance reaction was, how in earth a reviewer could possibility aprove this? ( It was very similar ) however the reviewer should have had this discussed with the team at first place before approving it so none of this would have had happened.
It’s not uncommon especially if you’re using a software (I assume Trapcode) that is specifically designed to do this.
People think more alike than they are willing to admit.
I don’t think the point is whether or not someone meant to rip off another file or not. It’s not about punishing an individual. It’s about respecting the rights of the established file/author that’s already on the site. Even if I come up with something “accidentally” that is very similar to another author I would absolutely expect to get rejected… no matter how the look was achieved or how much time I spent. That’s part of the risk in this type of business.
Also, if I felt like one of my files could easily be ripped and accepted I would lose a lot of confidence in Videohive and go elsewhere with my files. This is a big part of the trust we have for the Envato staff and it’s good to see them stand their ground.
