Thanks! I think il try to get it ready to upload for next year. It’s been getting a lot of really good feedback from my clients and I’m sure as lot of people on here would want to be able to add their own company branding to it.

Happy Christmas!

Normally I find myself behind everybody else with their mail out Christmas cards but this year I have made an extra special effort to make the time and have been working tirelessly to have an online Christmas card that is actually worth sending out.

I hope you all like it!!

I just bought this and it was being customised for me by explainervideotoolkit at gmail.com which was listed on the template as the go-to place to get customisations done. So I never bothered downloading the actual template. I’m waiting for a reply from him to reply as I’ve already paid him for the customisations. No news yet. Getting worried though.
I don’t think that’s allowed is it?
What exactly?

That the author is offering the customisation service without the customer having to buy the item. i.e. they are selling the template to the customer outside of the Envato network. I was under the impression that wasn’t allowed?

Blade Runner, Total Recall, Running Man, Tron (the original)

I’m a fan of the older generation of Sci-Fi although Moon totally did kick ass!

I’m assuming you have contacted the author? Did they include a tutorial? Please be aware that if they are not responding then they might be on holiday. For the most part authors on here are individuals who do not have a support team to back them up when they are away.

If what I have suggested is not the case and the author is not actually offering any support or refusing to help you then this may be reason enough to leave a comment in the comments section to warn other potential customers.

james@smudgethis.com if I can be of any further help.

Envato should get rid of 5-star rating system and implement smth like Facebook “like” or Google “+1”. Everything rest(negative moments) should be discussed in comments(which can be also with “negative” mark). That way authors will be informed, why clients are unhappy. IMHO

+1 to that… !

I still think the rating system has merit. It works on iTunes, amazon and trip advisor but it helps that on those platforms you can single out the negative reviews just to see what was wrong (in the customers opinion) with the template.

As the church is one of the richest institutions in the world, I am curious to know what a church’s budget is? :)

On a serious note, hello@smudgethis.com. Feel free to get in touch.

Kind regards James

I think (and I might be wrong) that you can render an alpha channel using the Prores codec in final cut.

If I am right then you could take your 1.8gb file, import into fc and then render a pr version that should be much much smaller.

Let me know if I’m right as I’m curious to know (I don’t have fc on my system).
