Referrals were solid right up until the algorithm changes on YouTube on the 15th.Now it’s pretty much dead.Very very frustrating.
Well now that explains the sudden drop on my views on a c4d video!! from 600/day to 15 :@ At least I know the reason now
EDIT : it’s funny how at the same time I posted this, an email from youtube support arrived to my inbox explaining exactly the same xD
I found the last ~5 days very unstable in terms of sales, just when I was starting to feel some sense of steadiness, but well I know this is pretty much the nature of selling anything anywhere…added the fact that I have very few items yet… I’ll just take it easy and keep on working
If I understood correctly, you should probably do a little research on lightmapping (bake lights to texture) and see if it applies to your case. There’s a lot of info at the C4Dcafe. Regarding the reflections, you can fake external objects/lights/sky by putting a map/texture in the environment channel of the object’s material. Hope that helps. Cheers!
I have a logo reveal in my portfolio that might be close as well. Hope you find it useful
How about a PNG sequence? or Quicktime Movie PNG (.mov). However, if you can’t get the transparency working, you can always make a green background and key it out inside Sony Vegas (as long as there’s no green component in the design)
Well, it seems like the origin of these flaws mentioned by Efekt is the lack of a specific style, direction, and purpose. Feels like you were trying to combine 3 of the most sold items into one single reveal. I think you should work more on planning and developing a style in order to keep your project consistent and functional. The rest are technical issues that will be fixed with practice and experience. Regarding the colors, you can use Adobe Kuler to pick or create a color palette and stick with it. You’re a great author with a strong attitude. Keep it up!
