+1 … but to ensure variety, I’d prefer that column list to be a “Top New Items” of that particular category, otherwise it will probably look a bit like a duplicate of the main list.

Cool stuff all around. :) I have a suggestion for the Waveform Audio Player that I think would save a lot of time: have a “Download Preview” button appear on each search result, and give that download file a useful and relevant filename such as “[author]-[title]” instead of “preview.mp3”.

This would streamline immensely the process of downloading a number of preview tracks, to see how they fit with other media.

Because right now, if I’m looking at the search results and there are 20 tracks that I’d like to hear together with a video (to find which one fits best), I have to open 20 item pages and click the download button on each one, and then rename each one to insert author and title to differentiate them. Far from ideal, right?

Hello, there seems to be a bug in the “Number of Clips” field. I just edited a bunch of packs of items (simply added a new image on the description) and after clicking Save, the “Number of Clips” field reset to to “1” on many of them. This has happened before, but I wasn’t sure if it was my error. I suggest anyone who has packs of clips to check if that field is OK.

Cheers

Seems the original issue was fixed but the other one I mentioned in my post wasn’t. Since I think they may be related and I’ve seen other authors mentioning this, here goes a screenshot from my profile page:

Hello, thanks for reporting the issue. As I have been unable to replicate could you provide me with the URL you are seeing this on and the web browser you are using.

This is happening to me too… I was almost sure a while ago this was also happening on IE and Chrome, but now it only happens on Firefox. Just go to any Popular Items page on Firefox and that will happen. Also seems to affect Profile pages: I have two 306px wide images side by side, and the second one will move down… this didn’t happen before the background color update. It also only happens on Firefox. EDIT: this last behavior of the image moving down actually happens on Firefox and IE, Chrome is fine…

Damn, mine didn’t even make the highlights list… Guess no one at envato likes espressos to start a rainy day ;)

I kid, congrats to the winners, it was fun creating a cinematograph!

Eh, this just reminded me of a thread from… apparently, a year ago… time flies: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/can-upload-the-preview-video-in-fullhd-1920x1080/110216?page=2&message_id=900231#900231

I don’t remember seeing other stock footage marketplaces with bigger preview videos than videohive… but they do seem to have a higher bit-rate encoding which gives a better looking image. One of these other marketplaces has a “View Full Frame Still” which is a good way to judge image quality, on stock footage at least.

The difference with those sites are that they were all planned and designed from top to bottom to account for content, spacing and the white background.

Yes, completely agree… I was just mentioning how strange it was that everyone (even if half joking) was suddenly blinded by the white background, even though many other high-traffic sites also have it.

For what it’s worth, to me the envatomarket doesn’t look coherent, these visual patches that keep appearing seem devoid of any final goal and feel like changing something just for the hell of it.

I’m gonna play devil’s advocate, but sites like google, reddit, wikipedia, apple… they have (by default) a white background… no one’s gone crazy over it yet. And like someone mentioned, most themeforest items have a white background. This is a strange backlash… yes, its bright as the sun, because we were used to the grey… which to me didn’t need to be “fixed” but I guess those polls said otherwise.

Now, what really bothers me are these text changes…
