    Show your YouTube Videos!

    Me and my wife last year decided to start a youtube photography travel channel and I was wondering if anyone here also has one? We've both been microstock contributors for about 10 years now and wanted to try something new. If you're a youtuber have you any tips or questions? Share your channel on this thread Here's our latest
  3. We are excited to announce that as part of our ongoing site upgrades, approved video clips will now be visible and accessible via the Catalog Manager. This will allow you to perform all the functions currently available for images (sorting and filtering), except for creating Sets. We plan to introduce Sets for video clips later this year. Clips that are pending review and that were rejected can still be viewed on the Approval Status page. Improvements for the Approval Status pages are also in the works and will be coming shortly -- stay tuned!
  4. Shutterstock doesn't display the tech info about files from the preview pages. Now I have sales support people writing to me to ask if files are for sale in ProRes. ProRes is the file format I've used for all clips on Shutterstock. Shutterstock can and should display this information on the file page, especially if customers are asking.
  5. Rejected tab is now Reviewed tab By popular demand we’ve replaced the "Rejected" tab with the "Reviewed" tab. Your rejected and approved content from the last 21 days will now be in one easy place to find. As an added bonus, you also have the ability to filter for just Approved or just Rejected content! Keyword Suggestions for Videos We also want to introduce the auto keyword tool for videos. Suggested keywords can be applied to videos you are submitting, or to your previously approved clips. Whenever you create or edit metadata for your content, remember to keep in mind our Title and Keyword Guidelines.
  6. Hello! For about 3 years, I uploaded video on the Shutterstock with the following parameters: File Format - QuickTime .mov Frame Rates - 30 Resolution - 1920х1080 Channels - RGB+Alpha channel Codec - PNG Until October 2018 there were no problems with these videos. For almost 2 months now, when trying to upload such videos to Shutterstock, they do not appear in pending, but an error message appears: "We do not currently support the codec of your video. Please re-export to one of our accepted codecs. Learn more about our technical requirements." I did not change anything in the render settings of my videos. And on all other microstock this files are uploaded without any problems. I tried to upload those videos that are ALREADY in my portfolio, but nothing changes. Video does not appear in pending, and I see the same error. I have contacted Shutterstock technical support 3 times already. I am constantly asked to read the technical requirements that I know and do everything in accordance with them. When I send details with screenshots about how I make videos, they tell me "I would like to inform you that your case has been escalated to the concerned department on priority basis and I will get back to you as soon as I get the update and assist you further." And this is all - further silence and ignore. I sent an example of such a video to tech support so that they could tell what technical requirement was not met. But there is no answer and probably will not be. Why am I sure that the problem is on the side of Shutterstock: 1 - I uploaded these videos for about 3 years - no problem. I haven't changed anything in settings since then. 2 - Even previously approved similar videos are not uploaded - the same error. 3 - There are no problems with all the other leading microstocks (Pond5, Adobe, Videohive, 123rf). I just want to ask if anyone has encountered this problem? If so, maybe you solved it somehow? Thanks
  7. Hello. I've been experiencing some problems with uploading my video clips. The video files are less than 1GB, however, it takes more than an hour to upload them lately. It used to be quick, like just 15 minutes or so before. So I'm wondering why it becomes so slow. Moreover, even an hour later of uploading the videos, I receive error messages on the submit content page. Somehow some video clips failed to be uploaded or were uploaded twice at a time. So it seems like something is wrong with the system. When I upload the same files to other websites, there is no problem. I hope you could help me solve this problem. Kind regards.
  8. Most popular tab for video shows Crossroads portfolio on first pages, if you use keyword "man" then in first places you can see Crossroads footages on the top (even drone footages without people)

    Excuse me, what does the CSV file mean? Is it mandatory to insert it?

    My footage

    I have 65+ videos in my port and have never sold one. Can you edit footage keywords afterwards. Any other suggestions would be welcome.
  11. Just a question. How do I submit my video content to my profile listing?
  12. I am new to video upload. I'm using FileZilla to uploading my videos. Video is 6 seconds long (3.5megabytes). When the video is uploaded completely I refresh the submit content window. But my videos don't show there. I'm using Adobe Media Encoder for Encoding my files. The settings are H.264 3860x2160, 60fps, Progressive, CBR 240, No Audio. I need to know how to properly upload? Is there anything wrong with my settings? How do I fix this Problem? Thanks.
  13. Hey everyone. I submitted 7 clips in MOV format about three hours ago. They all were transferred successfully using the ftp.shutterstock.com connection, using Filezilla. None of those files are appearing in my contributor dashboard in the "Submit Content" section. Am I doing something wrong or is it the wait time that is very big until the video files show up for tagging and submit? It's the first time I'm trying to upload videos so I'm not sure if I'm doing everything correctly. Do I need to upload the files to a specific folder in the FTP server or is the root folder the right one? I uploaded to the root folder but I noticed that there is a "release" folder there also. Should I upload there instead? Any tips would be very appreciated, thank you! Best regards Rui

    4K video compression?

    I have 4K footage I want to upload to my portfolio but not sure if I should compress them using H.264, Apple ProRes 422, or Uncompressed 8-bit/10-bit ? Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi, the link to the "Active videos" page in dashboard only redirects me to search on SS video library. That separate page where only my active videos are shown is for me no longer accessible. The link to "Active images" is fine, only the link to "Active videos" is somehow wrong. I can only see the videos overview in Catalog Manager. It is only my problem, or is it a bug in dashboard? This is a link to Active videos: https://www.shutterstock.com/video/gallery/196128110?language=en and here I am always redirected: https://www.shutterstock.com/cs/video/search?contributor=Pavel Rumlena Edit. Now I noticed that if I want to look at anyone's video portfolio, the same thing happens and I'm not able to see only the videos of that particular author. There is definitely a bug in the system.

    GoPro footage questions

    I mainly come from the stock PHOTO side, but recently acquired a gopro hero6 and may look into adding extra clips purely for stock. Any advice for using the gopro/video for SS? For example.. - Should I shoot in 4K? I am not sure if the 4K is "good enough" but I imagine a resized 4K to 1080p also looks better than native 1080p? - Is high FPS (slow motion) content valuable? Is it even supported on SS? Appreciate any insights or advice you guys may have!

    my videos are gone

    I cant see my video. i actually only have one but its gone. any one else having this issue or is it just me?
  18. I read somewhere that reviewers get paid based on the number of rejections. If that is true, than it is really bad.

    Video Collections / Clipboxes

    I created some Collections / Clipboxes on my video portfolio a while back. In the interim, I've shot loads of content which I'd like to add to their respective collections but I just can't seem to figure it out, either from the SS landing page or the Contrib page. Can't drag and drop, no "add to collection" option / button while editing footage or after approval. It seems that once a collection is created it can't be added to. Using Safari & Chrome on Mac if that makes any difference. Video seems to be the poor relation in SS world - still no location tags on video sales, lots of bugs when trying to organise, share, promote content. Anyone experiencing the same? Tips appreciated

    Medium term revenue from Shutterstock images

    Hello to all fellow Shutterstock contributors! I've been submitting images to Shutterstock for a couple of years now, here and there and have a small portfolio of 500 or so images. These earn on a monthly average, about $10-15 or annually, I earn around $0.45 per image / per year on average (this has gone up from an average of $0.40 / per image / per year. Much of my portfolio is Editorial. I do very little Commercial model-released stock, though around 50% is wildlife and landscape images. I'm just curious as to how those with larger portfolios and a longer track-record with Shutterstock are doing? Especially those who have a fair bit of Editorial stock in their collection, as it helps me plan how much time I devote to Shutterstock in the future. To be frank, Shutterstock has a fair volume of sales, but I find that $0.25 and $1.88 licenses don't really supply me with enough money to cover the high cost of producing stock images. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who is making reasonable returns with a 50/50 editorial/commercial collection similar in subject matter to my own. Thanks in advance and look forward to reading any replies!
  21. This query is for the experts and anyone who creates video tuts for youtube etc. I'm looking for decent screen capture software for the PC. It would be awesome if the software included things like highlighted cursor, etc.If it posted shortcut keystrokes onscreen as it went that would be awesome although I'm thinking its likely no one has that. Any sharing of your knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hey guys, does anybody know how to customize the video thumbnail? It seems i can't do it anymore.

    Videos larger than 4 GB

    This is the question mainly to SS Staff. Some of longer 4K footages (50-60 seconds) in your preferred format (MOV, PhotoJPEG, 75% quality), are larger than 4GB (but less than 5 GB). What solution do you advise in such a case? Submitting the MP4 file in the best quality (always smaller than 1GB)? Making MOV in lower quality? Cutting the footage into 2 shorter ones? I presently submit MP4 files, which are also accepted. I’m fully conscious, that clients usually use shorter clips, but as my footages are usually aerial flyby, approaching or revealing videos of big tourist attractions, I prefer to leave a customer the choice, which part of the video best fits his/her needs. BTW, What about extending the file limit to 5GB, like in some other agencies?
  24. Hi everyone, Can anyone recommend a software that can export 4k at 60fps and HD at 180fps, something inexpensive if possible (no subscription). I don't have much to edit, just trim and mute audio, then export in the same format (MP4). I was using Premiere elements 15 for lower framerate but it can't handle more. I saw on YouTube that there is a workaround for 60fps but too complicated for me. Thank you.
  25. Hey guys, have any of you noticed a difference in your video clips being purchased at a higher rate if they've been color graded or left flat? Thanks
