dtbaker saidThose that aren’t exclusive authors (and there are many) lose 70% of their money when they sale. While exclusive authors only get 50%... Do you seriously believe Envato doesn’t have enough money?
ClutchTrigger saidGotta work for it they’ve already increased commissions HEAPS , check the historical rates. When we started we were getting nowhere near the commissions they are handing out now. Envato has lots of bills to pay, if everyone got 70% they wouldn’t be able to sustain the marketplace.
Why not just give exclusive authors 70% commissions… Period.
When you count every single item + every single member that sales on this site and count the amount of exclusive and non-exclusive members… I think Envato gains more then enough, not to mention the ads they might pull on their websites.
This website is not maintained by Envato, it’s maintained by their authors that has nothing to do with Envato. We don’t have to be thankful for their small prizes, they should be thankful we are here selling our stuff. No offensive, just my belief.
I been working on 3D modeling as a hobby all my life. It isn’t my actual job, but I love the hobby! I don’t earn all that much (4 figures), but the extra cash is great at times!
hahahahahahahaha sorry for laughing out loud but this is really funny you don’t remember the password not only that you dont remember the email id from which you created the account
What’s so funny about that so I can laugh also. Are you that ignorant and immature little boy?
MarHen saidThe original phrase actually came from dismissing company employees with very high positions. Because their position was very high in the company, the employee was considered a very “tall” person so the original phrase was really; “Don’t hit the door on your way out.” Some time later the phrase was changed to; “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out”, which in a sentence doesn’t make any sense because of the fact that doors to not have arms or legs to actually hit someone or something. Which in little words, you don’t even know what you are typing. If you wish to be smart, we can be much smarter.
So whole Syndicate 3D team, we have a common phrase in my country which means something like: “do not let the door hit you on the way out”
Being over-sensitive never brings anything, nor is setting recognition expectancy too high on ones own work.
There is a big difference between being “over-sensitive” and knowing you just created the ultimate quality model. But if the reviewer can’t see this quality when he is the one that actually has the model in his very own hands and checking it in an actual application (I hope you people do this to “review” the items uploaded) then I don’t think your real quality models that deserves to be a weekly feature will even get in there. As you mentioned, even his price is at that of high quality models that really rank up on much higher polygons then that. If that wasn’t the case, the reviewer would of dropped its overall price but he didn’t. You also can’t come in here saying that the community decides what goes in the weekly feature because most of those models being sold don’t even have a comment or a purchase. Simply because no matter how good the models are, they are to simple and not very unique. And as DynastyWeapons said, how can a model with no turntable be posted as a weekly feature? The turntable is the main aspect of the model to show exactly what you are getting into.
And on that note, your weekly “Featured Author” is also not all that great. I noticed since I started selling on your site that you people place members with only like 4-8 models. What you should be doing is placing in the Featured Author members that have at least 50+ models, even better placing those with 50+ models who have a variety of different assets as in cars, tanks, jets, planets, texture maps, whatever, you get the idea… Now THAT is a featured author, someone buyers would really want to check up on. Give the buyer something to look at, not some person with just 1-10 models.
I created the generic Razor RZX -1000 super bike (http://3docean.net/item/razor-rzx1000/2289168?WT.ac=follow&WT.seg_1=follow&WT.z_author=Solair) so it can be in the weekly feature. Standing at an extremely low polygon count of just 2926 and using a single 1024×1024 diffuse texture map to show the full models actual details… I mean, I thought I outdone myself with this model and really focused a lot on it to make is as detailed as possible and fully game ready at the lowest amount of polygons. You just place this motorcycle in your game and your off. I see many models which make it to the weekly feature that have just like three images in it.. Best part is that most of the things featured in the 3DOcean section can be created in a matter of 2 hours or so, maybe even much less.So my question is what does it take to make it to a weekly feature, because if this super bike didn’t make it, I don’t think any of my models will. It is extremely disappointing.
Me being a person that focuses mainly on low polygon models, even I was impressed to see this model. But when I saw the polygon count on it, I remember telling myself; “No way!”. That was what made me just have to comment on the item. Very sad it wasn’t placed on the weekly features though, seems the things added are the things the reviewer likes and by passes quality+package simplicity.
MarHen saidWe sale at TS and they told us they have no problem with it.
Not even TurboSquid minds you selling your 3D models on websites you can prove to really own.
Yes, as long as you are not an TurboSquid-exclusive author. As non-exclusive you can sale your models on other sites (include your own) but the price must be at least 10% higher on these sites.As TurboSquid-exclusive author you can not sell on other sites(include your own), the same as exclusive author here on 3DOcean
tdubic saidNot even TurboSquid minds you selling your 3D models on websites you can prove to really own.
On one of the largest 3D market Turbosquid provide for non-exclusive 40% for exclusive contributors 50% to 60% If you use CheckMate Certification you can’t delete your models one year.
