UPDATE : Contest is OVER ! See our WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT !

AudioJungle needs the help of some VideoHive superheroes and we’ve got some great prizes to give away if you can help in our Video Loop Contest!

Background Info

Posting music videos on YouTube is a great way for AudioJungle authors to promote their music. You probably know this already as VideoHive authors – it’s also a great way to promote your VH files. The problem for AJ authors however is that while their expertise is in audio production they might not have the knowledge, know how or the software to produce videos to accompany their music. So that’s where you come in in this exciting little mini contest!

What We’re looking for!

We’re looking for .mov file assets (NOT After Effect files) that AudioJungle authors can download and use as videos for their music when they submit them to YouTube and Vimeo etc… So ideally, it might contain the AudioJungle logo and some kind of motion graphic or animation that is loopable. Maybe some pulsating speakers or headphones. Perhaps some animated audio equalizers? Creative control is all down to you!

AudioJungle authors will ultimately be able to download the loop, drop it into say, Windows Movie Maker on a PC or iMovie on a Mac, add their own music file, adjust the length of the video to the length of their audio file, and then export and upload to YouTube/Vimeo.

While you might like to make the video as “generic” as possible (so that it’s suitable for ALL kinds of music genres), you are also welcome to create videos designed/styled to a specific genre. Electronica, Hip-hop, Cinematic, Motivational etc… it’s entirely up to you!

Requirements

  • Videos should be no larger than 1080p (1920×1080) although 720p (1280×720) is preferred
  • All files should be submitted as Quicktime MOV files and encoded with the H.264 codec.
  • Videos should be loopable.
  • Entries are made by posting a preview link to your video in this thread as well as a download link. We will ultimately download your video and host it on your behalf (after the contest is over)
  • Contest open until Midday (Central Time, US) on Friday, January 13, 2012.

Contest Rules

  • Open to all marketplace members EXCEPT Envato staff, reviewers and mods etc…
  • Members can enter as many times as they like.
  • AudioJungle members will be voting to decide the winning videos.
  • Only ONE prize awarded per author. i.e. Author cannot win all prizes, just either one of first, second or third place based on number of votes received.

Ok guys – some technical question.

I’m not pro AfterEffect user, but I’ve got some experience in 3D animation in LightWave and I think I’ve got some idea. Can you please advise me if I would like to create a loop animation that will be a PART of animation / picture – like an layer on the top. So … should I render on: 1. White background, 2. Black background, 3. Render a Alpha file

Cheers – Matt.

Sorry… but I really don’t understand what you’re looking for. At least, show us one example of this king of loopable video mov file. I think “generic” video will be look ugly. Only AE projects may look great I think.

An it’s me only who doesn’t understood it!.. :)

OK … let’s think that way: You’ve got like static background image in your new AE project. This will be very colorful image with nice … panorama view on sky scrappers. On the top of this image you’ve got nice rotating 3D logo – not created in AE but but in LightWave. In this piece of software you can generate something called alpha file which helps to cut out background of animation. Or … just render this 3D rotating logo on i.e white background and then use some AE options to cut out white background.

Cheers – Matt.
