Hey all,

My first attempt at a template was a hard reject. I am trying to improve to the point where I can get something on this site.

I am mainly asking for opinions from more experienced authors if either of these have any potential to be accepted. If not, any advice would help!

Thanks!

Hi, are you using 3d prerenders or is this made using element 3d, nevertheless from what I can see the textures and the coloring overall are a bit off and not as sharp looking as it should be try improving the overall look and feel of the scene itself, maybe make it more realistic looking or on the other hand more motion graphics looking…thats just my humble opinion…hope it helps


#3

The scene is prendered from C4D with the text on top in AE. No plugins needed.

Is the issue with the CC in your opinion? The textures are very high res.


#4

Yes the coloring and the scene is a bit blurry and dark try making it more vivid


#5

Alright, you are talking about this one right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66n4jRmXd9c&feature=youtu.be


#6

Yes…try to brighten things up…:slight_smile:


#7

What do you think about my new item?


#8

Looks crisp. What are you rendering/working in?


#9

Element 3d is used in this project


#10

Do you prefer E3D over C4D or any other software? Just curious.

My only suggestion for the project would be to add something to make it a little more unique. Maybe some pre-rendered particles or alternative color options.

Hi let me put it this way, I cannot compare C4D with E3D, cinema is 3d software and element is only 3d tool inside after effects so I cannot say that I prefer element over cinema cuz those two are not comparable…

for my 3d work I use 3dsmax, cinema 4d and maya depend what result I want to achive and on what I m working on.

For motion graphics and for the market I mainly use lement for multiple reasons:

  1. It is making life easier when working on motion graphics that doesnt require advanced options that a 3d software provides.

  2. The buyer has all the options to change what he wants, to play around with camera to add or remove stuff to make their own unique scenes and on the other hand for beginners its super easy to customize the items.
    ( You cant provide that to the buyer with prerenders )

  3. Fast rendering

So if I look at the e3d as a tool to make more out of after effects for digital market items than I can say I do prefer it

But for big projects, productions and custom videos I prefer the 3d software plus after effects for post prosduction and da vinci for color correction.


#12

For your suggestion I agree to some point…but I did it without particles and without optical flares on purpose so that its clean cuz there are to much logo reveals especially done with element 3d with heavy textures and bunch of particles and flares…

I agree that it not unique but I think that it is supposed to be like that for this item specifically.

But I totally agree that maybe for the envato market its not something that could possibly be accepted or have good sales cuz there are so many different logo reveals and they are all basically similar.

The point was to do it in a clean and simple way because nevertheless I think that those kind of simple and elegant clean items are not so present on the market.

But we will see maybe I m totally wrong.


#13

And for the coloring options there are 3 already preset in the project but end user can easily change color of each material inside of a project that (how to included in the instructions)


#14

Interesting. I need to look into it for sure.

I made another possible intro for submission. What do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlJdpGRPRpc&feature=youtu.be


#15

That’s fair. Good luck with the submission!


#16

I also updated this. It’s a lot brighter now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXoRbA21cCM&feature=youtu.be


#17

Hi there, do not get me wrong but I do not understand what is your theme about. Is it supposed to be a logo reveal? What is the audience for your theme?


#18

It’s a logo or title reveal for surf/tropical themed content.
