This article provides information for Videohive authors regarding attributes for Stock Footage. It’s important you provide accurate and relevant information when uploading Stock Footage, which will help buyers find your items and in their buying decision.
The Category field determines specifically where your file lives within the Stock Footage parent category and is also used during a search request. It’s important to always select the bottom-most descriptive sub-category to ensure buyers are able to easily locate your item. Leaving your item located within the parent category “Stock Footage” is strictly prohibited.
This field allows you to explain if your file includes an alpha channel. We accept videos with embedded alpha channels as well as alpha or luma mattes. If your file includes an alpha channel or matte to make an area in the video transparent, you should select “Yes” for this field. Otherwise select “No” or “N/A” (when an alpha channel is not applicable).
This field tells your buyers if your video is structured in a way where it will loop seamlessly when the video reaches the last frame. The option “Yes” should only be used when the loop is seamless and no discernible break in the action can be observed.
The following situations should not be uploaded as a seamless loop:
- Videos that contain too many frames at the end, results in a loop that does not restart seamlessly.
- Videos that reach the end of the animation and immediately reverse the playback to simulate a loop.
- Videos that contain a noticeable crossfade during playback to transition back into the beginning of the original video clip. This is a common method for creating a loop and if the crossfade is not recognizable, it can be accepted.
