The following is just an idea, you can follow it or not i cannot unfortunately guarantee that if you do decide to follow these tips that your file will be accepted.
Your animation ends on 4 seconds and is static for the following 10 seconds, maybe try to slow the animation down and show more detail with some slow camera animation fitting the music on the particles?
Change the particle sprites to little hearts if you can?, slow down the animation and zoom in with different cutscenes to the spawning particles with a slow camera move with dof etc ( let the camera follow the tip of the spawningpoint as an example) from different angles maybe. Make sure the camera transitions are smooth and slow like the music is.
Finish it off with cutting to the endframe you have now while you still see half a second of the heart coming together with a smooth camera animation this is all personal preference.
You could also make a couple more shapes in the same style/subject with the same camera moves to make it a more diverse file.
But like i said, this is all up to interpertation i have gotten my share of hard rejects so maybe it shouldn’t be wise to follow my words
Works supers smooth ! Thank you!
First of all, after a couple of months the search engine still doesn’t show any details when it comes to addon’s, unlike the rest of the items including motion graphics on Videohive, i wonder when this will be looked at.
Second i noticed a change, don’t know how long it has been implemented already but the ’’Works with’’ details seem to have changed. You can choose works with CS3/CS4 etc but not individually anymore, i don’t know for sure but when you create effects in CS4 you can’t expect them to work in CS3 can you? So if my effect is made in CS4 i can’t select that option since it also has CS3 included in it? Is this a little detail that is overlooked or am i completely wrong here?
Hope to hear your thoughts.
I wish i could witness the beauty of the beast but i guess my eyes are not one of the chosen ones .. yet
Average/good month but the last 3 or so days didn’t get any sales. Yey for randomness !
I am very sorry to hear about your negative experience with the review team, it’s never fun to get rejected but we have all been there, i hope that is some sort of comfort, even the best sellers have had items rejected.
The time wasted is a shame, i also don’t agree with the first soft-rejected for a small detail change and a possible hard reject afterwards either, if it’s not suited for the marketplace we should hear it at the first submission, not after we made the requested changes/edits since it actually can cost some of us allot of time. Anyway if i look into your portfolio i can see some very creative and nicely designed work, don’t let the rejections get to you that much, it’s not worth it ( talking from personal experience ).
Ps. The file you link to is from 2010, 4 years has gone by and the quality standards are rising as ever, if you look into my portfolio you can see some very dated work as well that would never get accepted today.
Very sad news Misel i hope you and your family will be left unharmed. Stay safe!
Very good news! Thanks for finally implementing this in our marketplace <3!
I’m still waiting for another one of those ’’out of the box’’ contest, we had one few years back and it lead to some amazing submissions. Would be inspiring to see at least.
Congrats Ben! We are all super lucky to have you here on the forums sharing your knowledge. Well deserved!
