Hi Joshua
we want a question regarding most wanted after effects scripts
if only 4-5 members participate in this contest, than what happen?
Winners announced or not?

Yes we will announce regardless. That said, all prizes may not be rewarded depending on submission quality.

Hello! I want to participate in this contest.
You wrote “Post your approved entries in the forum thread” - where and what exactly I need to post?

Great! Post a link to your approved submission in this thread. Also don’t forget to fill out the submission form:

I really like the idea that my customers first test the product and then decide if they want it. So I want to create a main component/script which will be free ,it will have let’s say 10 animation presets so the customers can try it and sell the rest of the presets on videohive (exactly like Mister Horse with his Animation Composer and animation presets) .My question is if i do so for this contest it will be judge only the presets uploaded on videohive or the judges will take into account the main component too (which is free and can be downloaded by everyone on my site).If I do so I decrease my chances to win a prize ?
Thank you

This contest is for scripts only not presets I’m afraid. We will not be able to take into consideration a script offered outside of VideoHive free or otherwise.
