+100 I have to answer this at least once a month when dealing with motion graphic videos that have an alpha channel
during the beginning of the year the staff mentioned they were going to be doing price tests for specific items on specific market places. So hopefully they will/have tested motion graphics and stock footage prices and we see a price increase as well.
The reason why they have these contests is to generate files in a specific niche that is either up and coming(element 3d, cinema 4d, etc.) or often searched for without many results(motion graphic stock clip).
My guess would be there will not be another one for awhile. So maybe just go out and create what you want, thats what I do!
It all depends on file size for me. If I can get a similar to smaller file size out of ProRes instead of PhotoJPG then I’ll go ProRes every time.
Here is another one: http://videohive.net/item/internet-search-engine-screen-closeup/6546852
So since the standards for submitting things to videohive is high it seems a little weird that something clearly a stock video being accepted into motion graphics. [Link removed. Please do not call out items on the forums. Thanks! ^TK] I am going to hope that this is a mistake and not actually allowed since some of my motion graphic files are photo realistic and could be considered stock footage.
