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.

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.

Will definitely need this in my future.

That was a little surprise for me.

Quicktime Issue In After Effects: The Solution

picture: Quicktime Issue In After EffectsSo I had this issue for awhile. I couldn’t render using .mov format. The render process simply stopped in the very beginning and After Effects crashed after some moments.

I ran through tons of Apple and AE forum threads, searching for the solution. Ones said that it has something to do with CS5.5, others said that there’s a problem with the latest quicktime update version.
