Your Say: The Final Dogs or Cats Knockout

Punch to the Face by Ninja M.

It’s on again! We asked before. We surveyed the team in detail. Now we’ll make it official with a poll. What’s more popular in the Envato community? Dogs or cats?

Pets seem to be very popular around here. And controversial. But I think the dog-lovers are going to win anyway. Let’s find out.

Of course dogs and cats aren’t the only pets you can own, so I’ve added a few more options. Tick as many as you have. If you answer “other”, please let us know exactly which pet you mean in the comments.

And may the best man… ah, man’s best friend… win!

An AudioJungle Track Used in a Short Valentines Day Video

Niemierko Valentine’s Party, Spencer Hart from FX Films on Vimeo.

Here’s a video that uses music from AudioJungle in the backing track. It’s a short account of the Valentine’s reception held at Tailors Spencer Hart a couple of weeks ago.

In this case, the track used is Funny Neighbors by soundroll. The track is described as a “classic swing jazz band playing fun music. There is nice melody playing on piano and guitar. Features brass/horn section (trumpet, trombone and saxophones). It is a fast piece. I can imagine this music on family comedy or sitcom.”

Richard from FX Films, the creator of the video, thought it was exactly what he needed. In fact, he uses the Envato marketplaces more and more – AudioJungle without fail, and often VideoHive. He has discovered that marketplace files can be used together to create compelling videos.

Have a listen to the track on its own:

A huge congratulations to soundroll. It’s great to see how your work is being used!

Last week we covered how you can place Watermarked Previews from the Envato Marketplace into Item Previews. Today I wanted to point authors to a few Creative Commons resources for getting beautiful 3D Renders. Continue Reading
