Hello, coder and developer ninjas. I have created few websites using PHP, MySQL and HTML, but i would consider myself a total beginner in this field. Instead video is my occupation and ever since I saw Facebook LookBack video project I’ve been thinking about tech behind it.
Can you share some guesses or potential ideas how they made it possible to take raw image material and render in a nice video authomatically. Could something similar be used to work with AfterEffects templates? Would it require some custom made rendering engine or could it somehow communicate with Existing After Effects or Adobe Media Encoder on the server to do the job? I know there are third party services that provides video encoding services through API. Would something like that be possible with video rendering?
As you see I’m clueless about the tech side, but I’m interested to hear opinions from people who knows the ins and outs of web coding and might shed some light in the process.
I doubt ThemeForest reviewers would ever check Item Discussion subcategory of VideoHive. You might want to repost this to a correct category under ThemeForest to get more qualified response either from reviewers or suggestions from fellow authors.http://themeforest.net/forums/topic/item-discussion/26
First of all this is old thread you are bringing back to life. His item been approved almost month ago.
Secondly – as I explained in the original thread you are linking to – this is obviously the case when author is not aware of the requirement change. He is not rejected because he tried to protect his rights by applying watermark.
LanceSnider saidPlease educate your reviewers about this, people get soft rejected because they use the watermark.
Will I get rejected if I add watermarks? Nope. This is just an option to make things easier for authors. If you have one that you worry could get stolen without a watermark, you’re more than welcome to add one.
While the transition still happens, it’s hard to determine who is not aware of this change and who is leaving watermark purposely. If you have applied watermark purposely – please add a simple explanation in “message to reviewer” box and you will save yourself from a possible rejection.
Hi everyone . One question. Can i use google pictures in my after effects projects? For example: I downloaded cloud picture from google pictures , then that picture i am imported to project,d? some changes: color correction, masking .... Can i do that ? Thank You.
Google doesn’t create pictures. Google finds and lists them. they come from different sources, but source is not the key thing in decidig whether you can use the image or not. License is.
Please check the license for each image that you want to use. You need a license that allows commercial use to use a particular image in your preview video. To use image as an asset, cut out parts of it and resell the final outcome with your project you need a license that allows commercial distribution. For example you can find images on Flickr. When you do a regular search on the top right corner “Advanced search” link will appear. Then check all 3 checkboxes down at Creative Commons: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p2z736abdeea87w/Screenshot%202014-03-27%2009.08.31.png
If you take some random unlicensed image and cut out parts, adjust it or do some other manipulations with the image – it doesn’t change it’s license. You might feel that you have created unique result from the original image, but if it wasn’t allowed to manipulate it in the first place – you’re not allowed to use the final outcome, too. Your task is not to make the image different than source and hope that you will get away with it, but use it according to the license.
If you can’t find license – contact author to ask for it or consider it as not licensed for any manipulations or commercial uses.
I’ve seen this several times and we’re actually trying to understand if it happens because authors provide some specific non-standard file format or is it something on our end.
Normally we don’t download preview videos. We use the same on-site player to watch the preview on the review backing so problem is not local to reviewer’s computer. Sometimes when i encounter this problem I download the preview and locally it plays back fine, but neither Videohive player nor mp4 encoder server is able to handle the preview.
If you face this problem again and you’re certain that FLV you provided is standard – you might want to open a support ticket and they will try to pinpoint the problem.
Here is a detailed beginners tutorial in case you want to lay some foundation for After Effects software: http://cgi.tutsplus.com/series/welcome-to-after-effects--ae-28707
Hello Nissim ,, I will send 200 dollar to my payoneer account from envato in 17th of the month ,, how can i send the card to my address via dhl And how it cost to send it to me? Thanks
It’s not a good idea to use public forum for specific, private and sensitive information. You might want to contact Payoneer support or Nissim personally through his e-mail.
Before this, I used reference video Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in my preview file. But they said “You’re not allowed to use music videos or celebrities in your preview video”. And I removed them. Some other items in VideoHive use this reference video and pass !, like this item, but I’m not allowed, i dont know why ?Thank you bilalmarri.
What i meant with accusation is that you’re giving false witness. Here I collected some screenshots from your preview to illustrate it:https://www.dropbox.com/s/p77iur31vuigh5m/Screenshot%202014-03-10%2009.43.16.png https://www.dropbox.com/s/sf3w23g15hvhum2/Screenshot%202014-03-10%2009.43.45.png
