Hey wanted to ask when is After Effects CS6 templates going to be implemented as choice in the Uploading and will be available as AE projects version.
My guess is a year and a half
videohive doesn’t accept cs5.5 yet or c4d r13

I’m going to guess that CS5 .5 isn’t accepted because no one’s quite clocked that it’s a different piece of software… i.e. not backwards compatible with CS5 – and perhaps because it doesn’t appear to offer a lot of stuff for template makers that CS5 can’t do. That’s a quite different matter with CS6 and if VH takes that long to get on board it’ll quickly start losing out to those sites that do take it on quicker. CS5 was accepted quite quickly after release.
As for C4D R13 … probably because C4D section’s not big enough to matter yet. Maybe the reviewers have only got R12 … It costs nearly $1000 to upgrade the full edition of C4D . Until the connoisseur C4D buyers come on board, they’re probably not going to care too much.
I sometimes get the feeling that Videohive is being a little bit overlooked. It’s got to be no.4 in terms of revenue behind ThemeForest, CodeCanyon and perhaps Photodune though. Unlike Photodune, Videohive is pretty much the market leader.
Well R13 has backward compatibility with R12 right? One could still load and save the file to R12 and upload it. Is that correct?
I’m now using CS5 , i guess a lot of people use CS4 right now.
It’s hard to know. People used to hang onto the same version of a piece of software for years and cling dearly on to the concept that they “own” it. Maybe because it was so expensive to buy and maintain software back then. But software gets cheaper and cheaper. You can now upgrade Ae for $175. Around 2004 a copy of After Effects 6.5 pro (yep – there was a standard and a pro version back then) cost £1650 if memory serves. Factoring in inflation and doing the exchange rate as it was back then, that comes to a pretty heavy duty $3750.
So you see? After Effects is waaaay cheaper than it has ever been and with Creative Cloud there are so many different ways to work it now. I think as subscription services like Cloud start to take off, the idea of being a few versions back might start to feel very outdated…and I’m guessing that Adobe software at least will continue to get cheaper and more widespread. These guys are really going for it.
I always thought that CS5 .5 is not on upload page because templates made in CS5 .5 can be saved as CS5 .
