1st Sale In 5 Days & Some Thoughts About It

So, it is my 2nd project after a long break and it took it 5 days to get the 1st sale, even that it’s a quality work. It even got a “Trending Item” mark.

Anyways, I don’t know what could be the reasons, but I’ve realized 3 things:

  1. People wanna get AE project templates for their photos, videos and messages. Apparently, in most cases it is about something they took with their phones. So, the templates have to be about showing that and helping to show that. From average people to average people.
  2. It gets harder to get exposure for the new ones. This might be helped by collaborating with big daddies and bringing something really useful and fresh, probably.
  3. You have to have constant updates.

Yet, my plan is to stick to some more trailer projects. And then will see.

The Identity

So, I’m kinda back and I’ve decided to start from a little rebranding.

By now I’ve updated some stuff on my VH profile page and made this little intro.

Also planning on making lots of free templates, because..
..which is pretty not bad.

Youtube also confirms that..

PS. Changed my mind a little bit about the final look of the identity video. And probably there’s gonna be more, because all those flares get “dirty” after different compression methods on different sites, including the Videohive.

Polygon Table

Will definitely need this in my future.

Layer Styles

After checking this post and its project file by Andrew, I realized that I have never used those layer styles in After Effects. In fact, I did even use effects to generate text shadows.. or even glow instead. Gosh..

That was a little surprise for me.
