I’m writing today to announce the latest iteration of the VideoHive Stock Footage & Motion Graphics watermark.
The existing watermark has served us well for many years, but with the growing number of Stock Video submissions we quickly realized our watermark was not ideal for all situations. The existing watermark didn’t work so well when placed over the top of light colored or bright footage. We have always allowed authors to invert the watermark in these cases, but there’s never been clear instructions about how and when the inverted watermark should be used and what the acceptable tolerance level is.
The new watermark should remedy this, allowing for one standardized watermark to be used for all situations. The new watermark will remain visible for both light, and dark videos. A small example can be seen below.
The new watermark can be downloaded via watermarking instructions article and can be used immediately. Starting August 25, 2014, this new watermark will be required for all Stock Footage and Motion Graphic submissions. Any files not using the new watermark on or after that date will be soft-rejected and asked to use the new watermark instead.
Thanks for understanding and for your cooperation!
