  1. Hi everyone, it's been a while since I noticed that after uploading my videos on SS I see them with an ugly green cast in the non yet submitted page. Why? The original color grade is correct in Davinci Resolve and also after exporting them to my hard-drive. Thank you.
  2. This contributor has several of my videos in his portfolio. For example this ... https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-1063378141-stack-gold-bars-bullion-precious-metal-investment My original videos were HD and this thief converted them to 4k. This is my original video https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-5057402-gold-barsingot-loop-finance-3d-animation Please look, maybe your videos are there too ... And the second question! Why is my video footage visible in search results? My Video Portfolio has been disabled since November 2020... And obviously I will ask the
  3. Hi Friends, I purchased i phone SE and started shooting videos in 4K mode and SS already accepted almost 100 of footage. As I am a newcomer and quite new in the area of Videos,I am little bit anxious about selling the footage in SS. Can any SS Friend tell me regarding the sell and revenues from footage in general form? Does 4K sell? Partha Pal from India
  4. hello everyone im wandering about exporting some stock footage as HDR just not sure if SS would accept that kind of footage
  5. Hi I want to add my short animated subscribe buttons to my portfolio. I would like to offer a few together as one collection, is this possible? I just don't think it's fair a customer would have to pay as much as a full clip at 4k for one single animated button, but it seems this is the way others have done it. Could I create a video file with a few of the animations running one after each other so the customer can trim to the clip they want to use easily? Many thanks

  7. In a few months i will start uploading PRORES because it is a pain both storage and uploading speed. So, for now, i just want to know how do you export h264 actually to get the higest quality. For this example i have a original clip 4K UHD in h264 100mbps from a sony a6400 8 bit camera. So, my export settings in Premiere after do all edit process will be: check Render at maximum depth Profile: High (i have just discovered this parameter that seems important) Level: 5.1 Bitrate: VBR, 2 pass - target: 110 (here I like to add 10 mbps more than the orig
  8. The problem with FTP uploads: since May of this year all of the footages in the 4K quality ( 100 - 300 Mb of each) at the side of Shutterstock account come with an error "We can't read what's in your file. Please re-save or re-export your file, and try uploading it again." These have been several attempts with a total of over 100 files. (!) Same footage in HD quality uploaded successfully. * And from the Shutterstock technical support side, I get the impression, that I get answers from artificial intelligence but not from a real person, who can understand the essence of the problem.
  9. Is the quality of video produced by a phone like the Redmi Note 8T (48MP camera) or Redmi Note 8 Pro (64MP camera) likely to be acceptable for submission as stock footage? I have mirrorless kit I use for images and could put this on a gimbal and I think I would have a chance of capturing some acceptable 4k video. Putting a Redmi Note 8 on a much smaller and lighter gimbal would give me something that was a lot easier to carry, but I can't see that the quality would be anything like as good. It could be a complete non-starter for stock footage. An example of 2160p@30fps footage on a R
  10. What is the most usable composition setting for an after effect motion graphic project as a footage here in shutterstock?
  11. Hi! Due the quarantine of the coronavirus, I've been working on my old footage clips to submit. Thing is, Shutterstock doesn't recognize the IPTC data on the files, when I upload them, the description and tags are blank, and I have to redo all the work. I'm uploading via FTP, but I've tried on the web uploader and it's the same problem... Anyone knows how to fix this? Cheers
  12. Hi All, I am fairly new to Shutterstock and I have been trying to upload footage to Shutterstock for some time, but I seem to encounter the same problem every time. I succeed, on a grand scale, by uploading the same clips repetitively until I stop it. Last night I had a queue of about 12 clips in FileZilla. The first two clips in the queue uploaded a total of 23 times and none of the rest uploaded at all. I cannot figure out why. I use FileZilla in the same way for other uploads with no problems. This is killing my available data (I can't get unlimited at the moment) and the only
  13. Why is H265 not supported. We are in the 4k age now, yet you only support outdated codes like H264? This forces us to encode using prores, which increases bitrate by 400% (adding in bitrate that doesnt exist in the original clip) even on the lowest setting. This increasing file size by 4X, which increases upload time, wasting bandwidth, increasing download time for your reviewers, increasing review time. The benefits are clear but I dont see it on the list? http://www.shutterstock.com/contributorsupport/articles/kbat02/000006587 All because you don't have a tech team that follows
  14. When submitting footage, the hardest part seems to be keywording and metadata entry. Does anyone have a good workflow for simplifying and making this process less painful? Keyword generators (for ideas, not for copy & paste), metadata apps, file organization, etc? Currently I'm just kind of making it up/thinking it up as I go and not surprisingly, it's not very efficient at ALL.
  15. I keep hitting a 3600 second (1hr) timeout during upload, a main reason I'm considering ditching my current internet service provider for a fiber based (and, incredulously, cheaper) offering. Would anyone provide an average Mbps, especially if you have fiber internet? Straight off your FTP, please, rather than a Speedtest result - I'm curious about which side has the bottleneck. Thanks! Related: I live in Raleigh, NC, a point of the "Research Triangle" and we're pretty spoiled with web access. How are folks with slower connections submitting footage files?
  16. Hi everyone! I live in Peru and I’m working with a company that have eco lodges in the national reserve of tambopata, Madre de Dios. It’s a pristine undisturbed place to see a loooot of wildlife, And filming wildlife full time is my gol. So I’m thinking about stook footage as an income and doing what I love. I have a good relationship with the founder and owner of the lodges and we are evaluating a company option. He will finance equipment, flight tickets to tambopata, food, transport, lodging, permits, etc. In exchange I will put my time as camera man, editing the clips and upload
  17. I posted a video with lemming and was surprised to find that the video with lemming is not here. Although I got very modest shots. But I had to wait about an hour to photograph them. On other frames that I did not post, he only shows his head. Apparently lemming is a very careful animal. But I thought the drains already have everything. PS: And this animal is very beautiful, I saw him for the first time. He looks like a slender guinea pig, and his movements are beautiful.
  18. Hello guys Which fps is better to shoot videos? Will the fps will affect my sales ? how and why ?
  19. Is Shutterstock still the most cost-effective for photo and footage sales among other image stocks? Which stocks are between your leaders in sales figures?
  20. Hi, Has anyone contribute footage both in SS and iStock? Any earning gap? Thanks
  21. Hello friends, I shoot photos for about 20 years, i don't think I am a pro but I am somewhere about that more or less. BTW i am very new to videography. I shoot video by a dji spark drone and with hd DSLR - gimbal equipment. I just invested on a 4k mirrorless to make better quality footage. I guess my equipment is enough at least to start. I uploaded some footage but no sales yet. Are they too bad? Subjects too ordinary? What are your advices to make my footages to sell? Thanks in advance ...
  22. I have only recently started with videos. Admittedly without much idea. I don't have a "real" video camera, but I make the clips (except from the air) mostly with the Sony RX 100 VI. Which usually leads to rather dull results. That's why I edit the videos in a similar way to my stock photos. So correct exposure, adjust highlights and shadows and usually a little more vividness or saturation. Now videos are used differently by the customer than photos. I suspect that often different clips are put together. In such cases I think that the post-processing could be rather harmful and the c
  23. Hi, I'm new to shutterstock! I've uploaded several video clips, but I can't seem to be able to change the titles after they were uploaded. Is there some way I can do it I haven't found yet? Can you do it after they are approved?
  24. Hallo everybody, could anyone answer me how it is possible to resolve a problem with a wrong link not referring to my footage portfolio but to a general one? I've asked for weeks to resolve this issue, for days and weeks, to a variety of contact and addresses here on SS, but I've received every time not more than a polite answer like 'We'll try to do our best to fix it'. Weeks go by. I do not know what to do more. Anyone could help me to understand how can I obtain a solution? I have a footage portfolio but no one can reach it...really sad. Thanks in advance everybody and all th
  25. Hi Friends, I submitted footage through ftp but don't see it appearing and so I can't make it ready for review. It seems to be stuck in the ftp and not processing. Anybody else has this problem? Is there any another way to upload videos ? thanks
