How to credit author for portfolio?

I recently used a AE template from the Envato marketplace through video hive. This template was used for an animated short I created showing how my company’s product works. The animated shots are all 100% my work, but the title slides/transitions by the Envato Author are obviously not.

Now, I have read everything on how to credit the Author in certain cases, but didn’t see anything about portfolios so I would like to ask the community the following:

I would like to showcase this animation/video in my personal portfolio website to show my animation skills, but want to make sure that I am not claiming the author’s work as my own. How should I credit this?

Thank you

There is no requirement to provide credit. Just don’t resell the assets alone, especially as your own product. (But you can sell them as part of a bigger project)

:slight_smile:

Don’t just take my word for it though, see the actual license details for yourself –

Thank you for your reply but that didn’t answer my question. I read the licensing information and know that it’s not required to give credit, but as an artist to other artists, I am asking how I should present myself properly here so I am not taking credit for their work.

I want to showcase these animation videos because it shows off my animation skills, but I want to word it in a way that doesn’t give the assumption that I created the titles as well. Do I credit the Author by name?

If anyone has this experience, I would love to know what you did with regards to crediting the author when adding these projects to your professional portfolio. Thanks
