some minor good news:
a) one of my sites was until yesterday still running an earlier 3.x version
b) I tried testing the vulnerability to wpconfig.php w/code line found at http://blog.sucuri.net/2014/09/slider-revolution-plugin-critical-vulnerability-being-exploited.html
c) my wordfence security plugin successfully blocked my test attemptso you may want to install free wordfence and check https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/
great idea, with faster jump-cut editing nowadays I seldom hold any shot longer than 5 seconds anyways when editing promo videos
p.s. of course for models in bikinis type footage you’re welcome to shoot longer, lol
great idea; topseller microniches are ones like:
+ fitness + diets/cooking + marriage/wedding services/videographer + financial services + stock/forex trading + internet marketing + restaurants + nightclubs + retail stores + coffee shops
the list goes on…
very well written comments by felt …
I think $18 for a track is cheap enough for small business uses – even if you have to pay it five times for five projects. It’s more than a good value – it’s a steal.
not compared to virtually all your competitors. Google ‘royalty free music’ and compare licenses. I spent thousands on rf audio, just not here. that’s why.
as a guideline, for projects that feature physical products, like DVD covers, rather than undignified spinning-around ones, I’d recommend camera shots like that used in cyzer’s excellent logo project (which i’ve bought, thx):http://videohive.net/item/glossy-video-reflections-logo-or-title/841725
the reason is, when you’re trying to sell a project, close-up “hero” panning shots like this are a great way to emphasize the product being sold…make sense?
that’s a good commercial photography/ae tip for any product-for-sale related project, is have both wide-angle far shot as well as closeup panning over it…because that makes it easier to sell product, which makes your ae project likely of more interest to us buyers
It’s important to note that overly restrictive licensing (like envato’s current single-use restriction) makes it noncompetitive with virtually Every other royalty free audio place buyers like me buy tracks from.
Normally if a small business owner like me buys a royalty-free music track from an established place, like all the ones that are in business from long before aj was, we can use it in unlimited of our own projects. I will typically just want to use a track in up to 3-5 of my own projects, so not a lot, but I don’t understand why Envato restricts royalty free usage to a single application.
Google ‘royalty free music’ and look at everyone else’s licenses. One competitor changed to single-use after envato started doing that, but not most others. Many places offer bundles, eg 8-10 tracks of which 2 or so are very good, w/unlimited use for a bargain price. And that’s from very large well established royalty-free audio places w/bigger catalogs who’ve been in business longer.
On behalf of other buyers, I’d urge Everyone to google ‘royalty free music’ and carefully check license terms and pricing elsewhere. I spend 1000s on rf audio, but not here due to the single-use restriction. How about opening that up to say 3-5 uses for ones’ own projects, as the standard license, Envato staff?
Example one top company’s RF audio license reads in part “grants to you a perpetual, non-exclusive…worldwide right to display, use, reproduce, publish…in an unlimited number of projects, in whole or …”... but not Envato. Why would I buy here with a “you can only use it in one project” license when bigger competitors offer top-quality audio w/unlimited use license?
(this doesn’t apply to PRO/broadcast/film/movie usage; I’m talking about the other 99% which is us small biz owners that want to use a track in a couple of promo free videos as backing etc)
that brings up a slightly offtopic point, eg as videohive/envato changes their license structure, it’s important to remember that at least here in the USA, the buyer’s rights are for what the license terms were when the license was at the time of purchase. that’s a good point not just for envato but for anything you buy, is remember to download and save the license that was in place when you bought an item. I always in my browser file/save as to c:/licenses/ from original web pages when I buy something, so I have legal proof/documentation.
Otherwise companies could sell under a reasonable use license, buyer buys something, then 2 years later completely changes/restrict usage… in that case, the license that was in effect originally when buyer bought, is what the agreement is between buyer/seller.
