Do you think it's worth re-uploading already accepted videos, with better post-processing. I'm talking especially about files that haven't sold before so their search placement won't be hurt.

Here's one example before-after. I know that stauration in the second example is maybe a little bit over-done, but you get the idea.

First one looks better, but still... not sure I'd bother if they've not sold already. It's not like boosting the saturation and making the background a bit bluer is going to turn it into a best seller! No offence... it's a perfectly decent shot, but if people aren't buying it then they're not buying it, a slight change in colours isn't going to change that in my opinion.

Of course I'm not offended. I appreciate your opinion. Actually this one video sold once at Fotolia. It was just an example of re-postprocessing.

Probably not worth it. For your example, they're different, but I don't know if one is really better than the other.

If you have lots of time, OR, believe it will generate sales, go for it. Otherwise, I'd move on, because it's pretty time consuming.

BTW, I admit I like the second one better. The deer is more the focus/subject of the picture.

It's an interesting thought...........but Don't bother.
 
Any editor who thinks the clip needs more colour can do it in an instant. You are much better shooting more clips than tinkering with ones you've already submitted - remember content (and quantity) is king, not a bit of saturation here and there.

That would be my thinking too. However, I recall someone on this forum stating that the clips that sell the most have been colour graded.

The first one is much better. It has a natural look. Perfect for nature.

You would rarely want a nature/wildlife clip to be graded, just color corrected.

On the other hand, a cinematic sequence of a fashion model in slow motion might benefit from a graded look.

I think you're all right. I re-processed only few of them, which had most off white balance. I'm not sure if I'll reupload them thouhg.
