Are there any plans to review the licensing options for motion graphics clips at some point? There used to be an extended license, but then they got rid of it. Most other categories across the marketplaces have an extended license, why not motion graphics?
I’m minding my own business one day and I get an email through my website, where I post a bunch of my stuff. There’s a lady asking about some of Mars clips and asking how she can license them. There’s a link to each item on the site, but still, I send her some links via email.
She gets back to me saying thanks, you’ve got some great stuff, you really should charge more for them. I explain that Envato set the prices, but she was more than welcome to buy multiple licenses as they’d make excellent gifts for friends and family. She didn’t for some strange reason. But anyway, she did buy half a dozen or so single use licenses.
Turns out they’re making a documentary on Mars that is going on a new paid subscription video site that was set up by the dude who set up the Discovery Channel. Lovely. But if there was an extended license then rather than paying X, they would have paid X times by 3 or 4 or 5 or whatever. Sounds like they would have been happy to pay that based on her comments.
But anyway… music, website, graphics, AE templates… they all have extended licenses, some considerably higher priced than the standard licenses. Why no love for motion graphics?
