Hi firestarter, just for future reference, something like this should be posted on the “Item Discussion” page instead of the main Videohive forum.
As for your project, that type of animation isn’t something we typically accept anymore. We’ve moved beyond accepting simple extrusion projects and reject them most of the time due to marketplace saturation.
Take a look at the most recently approved items in the Logo Stings or Openers category for a better idea of what the current trends are.
Yeah, maybe it does lack the razzle-dazzle of a must-have AE template! I just thought it would be a nice tool for anyone making space videos. maybe I’m biased though I’ll have a think and see what I can incorporate it with, to make it more appealing/versatile.
You can certainly list and market this as a “planet tool” which would actually be quite useful. But you’ll have to provide more than just Jupiter, and it would likely make sense to provide all of the planets in the solar system.
The animation is nice and looks great, but it’s not typically something we accept to the After Effects category, unless you provide more value such as an entire pack of pre-animated, customizable planets.
There doesn’t appear to be anything customizable with the sample you’ve provided other than the motion of Jupiter’s atmosphere. Possibly adding text layers or other customizable features, as well as additional camera angles and fly-bys might help make this more of an acceptable item.
The performer on the stage in your recently rejected items was too recognizable. His face might have been blurry, but it was still identifiable. Please keep in mind that anytime you submit footage with recognizable people, you have to include a signed model release form for each and every individual.
Sounds like a good idea but its been hard rejected and therefore can not be resubmitted. plus it would make it extremely similar to other projects . i was not angry by saying I’m leaving Envato. I tried my best and it just isn’t good enough. My other templates have had poor sales, what is the point spending ages on poor quality projects that and not only that, its quite time consuming doing tutorials and getting template sale ready. then get rejected. i think Envato should allow preview videos uploaded before project files submit anyway thanx for your comment
It’s also come to our attention that the project in question was essentially copied from another project that already exists on our marketplace, so no, please do not resubmit it to the queue for further review.
And please, always create original works. Anytime you use another project as “inspiration”, it MUST be 100% different. Any likenesses or similarities will always be caught by the community and reported accordingly.

It might be an anomaly (at least I’m hoping it is), but this has been one of the slowest weeks in recent memory.
If authors would submit files that didn’t require soft-rejections, the queue would go much quicker! Hey-ooo!!!
