I find it EXTREMELY frustrating to find some amazing AE files that seem to fit perfectly for my video work. But 99% of the time, the duration of their placeholder dont match the duration of my videos. Here, there are usually around 3 to 10 secs max…while my videos range anywhere from 15 to 60secs long !
You can always ask the author to make a custom version of the project for you, other authors (like myself) are good people to ask too. Of course that will cost you some extra money.
Good critique though, it’s very nice to hear back from buyers.
