Description differences between Videohive and Envato Elements

I am not exactly sure where this post should exist but I have a question:

I have a Envato Elements yearly subscription, which I love, but I don’t understand why there is such a gap between Videohive and Elements?

I was looking for an AE slideshow template that I could use for a memorial service. I found this one on Elements: Photo Slideshow Gallery, Video Displays ft. cinematic & holidays - Envato Elements and there is barely any useful information about the project. No mention about the # of media or text placeholders or general features.

The same template is on Videohive here: Photo Slideshow Gallery, After Effects Project Files | VideoHive, complete with the info that I was looking for and more.

Why do you not provide the same information in both places?

Different marketplaces. Not everyone on VideoHive ( VH ) on Elements and it’s subscription model that most of the authors are not interested in as well as the items on the Elements are mostly for promotion/free demo and has limitations, if you like the item, you could purchase it from the author directly.

The difference is, when you’re paying ~40$ per month for everything you could download, the item is listed for 24$. It’s most likely you get what you pay for. If you pay 24$ per item, you’d get more features along with support
