Designing and coding… both are easy. :p If you like doing them, of course.

1st – 15th May 2015 compared to:

1st – 15th May 2012 – 20% drop

1st – 15th May 2013 – 30% drop

1st – 15th May 2014 – 30% drop

1st – 15th May 2015 compared to 1st – 15th April 2015 – 43% drop.

1st – 15th May 2015 compared to 1st – 15th March 2015 – 46% drop.
Here is my statistic:
1st – 15th May 2015 compared to:
  • 1st – 15th May 2012 – 53% increase
  • 1st – 15th May 2013 – 29% increase
  • 1st – 15th May 2014 – 40% increase

1st – 15th May 2015 compared to 1st – 15th April 2015 – 4% increase.
1st – 15th May 2015 compared to 1st – 15th March 2015 – 14% increase.

Something definitely wrong with the system… Why do I have such increase?!.. Because I create new item?.. But I always do… Or may be there is no any reason? May be it’s just happend. May be next 15 days I will have a big drop, and you will have big increase.
I never saw a person who post here about his increase and said something like this: “Hey! I have 40% increase, may be something has been changed in search system? Because, it’s not normal.” Funny right?

Just, try to be more positive, guys!

Can anyone tell us what is going on with the Sales, i have a drop more than 50% this was never happened before. I was making more money in 2010 when i was at the beginning with a couple of templates then now. It must be some reason for this.
+1000 The same here 80% drop
Anyone else? Can we count how many authors from Videohive are experiencing low sales this month?

Stable sales since November 2013. Had few times unexpected high sales, but it’s an exclusion than the rule.
Furthermore, my pageviews are also stable during this period.

But if you look at my earnings graph from April, you will be shocked:

Sorry for picking up this old thread. Just don’t want to start new one.

But where can I find Mortal Kombat trailer under CC3.0 license? Is it legal?
How could it past a review process?

I’m curious…and I really don’t want to see the situation where another really talented author will be banned like Victorica did before.

@AmigoProductions
Just think about one thing:
For example, person don’t buy your item in discount period. The reason is not so important. He thought for a moment and don’t buy it… But then, a month later he decided: “ok, I will buy it”. He goes to your item’s page and see that the price was change, there is no discount. So he think once again… And may be he will decide to buy new item with discount, because he already accepting that the price must be lower, he is tamed to have discount.

So you tell about Video Copilot… If I see a discount, I will never ever buy that product without discount (of course, if only I need to do an urgent work that I can’t make without it). I will better wait for another discount.

Yes, prices are low enough. I think for buyers it’s not big deal if your item will cost $20 or $14. If they need it, they will buy it.
But it’s only my opinion.

Can I purchase an item to use as a small element within a larger project that I plan to sell as stock or a template? For example, could I purchase a button graphic for a theme I plan to sell?
Use of items in larger stock projects is not allowed as the default position under the licenses, but there are exceptions.

Exception 1: When you purchase an Extended License and get written permission from the author. Keep a copy of the email giving you permission.
Example: A CodeCanyon author has a slider and gives permission by email to a ThemeForest author to use the slider, under the Extended License, in a theme.

Exception 2: When an author gives a blanket permission (in the item description) for the item to be used in other stock items sold on Envato Market, with the purchase of an Extended License. Keep a record of this permission if you use an item in this way (e.g. save a screenshot).
Example: A CodeCanyon author has a slider and states in the item description that any buyer is permitted under the Extended License to use this item in a larger stock item that will be sold.

Exception 3: When the smaller element is licensed as 100% GPL, you may use it within a larger project without needing permission from the author.

Hi, guys I’m working on a project where I d like to link the text value to a specific attribute, such as opacity.

It it possible to link for example the letter ‘t’ to 50% opacity, or a specific position, and the letter ‘b’ to an other value? So when the text layer is set to ‘t’ the opacity is 50% for example, and when it’s ‘b’ the opacity is 80%.

Thanks! :)
Try this:
text = thisComp.layer("TextName").text.sourceText.value; // Change the layer name
text = text.toLowerCase();
switch (text) {
    case 'b': 30; break; // Change 30 to have another value when your text = "b" 
    case 't': 50; break; // The same thing with 50 and text "t" 
    default: 0; // Default value
}
This expression works with both uppercase and lowercase letters (“t” and “T”). So the value on “T” will be the same as on “t”. If you don’t want this, remove this line:
text = text.toLowerCase();

Thanks Yahor! Very easy to follow. Works like a charm :)

Is there a way to specify the letter position in a word? For instance the source text will only take into account the third letter in a specific word? This would really be a time saver!
Don’t quite understand what you mean.
But if you have, for example, the text “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”. And you want to set specific value if the first letter is “t”. So you need to change this line:
switch (text) {
to that one:
switch (text[0]) {
The counting starts from zero. For example, you want to check if the eleventh letter is “b”. You put text[10], not text[11]
BUT if there is only 4 letters in source text you will get an error. Because there is no eleventh letter.

So first you need to check how many characters you have in text. Here is the whole code:
text = thisComp.layer("TextName").text.sourceText.value;
num = 10; // Put here the number of desired letter. Remember counting starts from zero
def = 0; // Set default value
text = text.toLowerCase();
if (text.length > num) {
    switch (text[num]) {
        case 'b': 30; break;
        case 't': 50; break;
        default: def;
    }
}else def;

...or maybe you need something more complex?
