So, is it OK to upload 4k versions of already accepted HD or UHD clips?

Hi everyone,

We are pleased to announce that 4K video content is now available at Adobe Stock. 4K clips cost $199.99 and your commission rate is 35% (approximately 70 credits). Customers now have the option to purchase the 4K version of your clip for $199.99 or they can purchase the HD version for $79.99.

This is a great time to submit new content as we are working hard to get your work in front of the millions of creatives around the world using Adobe software. We are looking for 5-60 second clips.

Nice!

One question - will you accept 4096x2304 - that's a common "real 4k" resolution (16:9 ratio) and all of my 4k work is in that resolution.

@Zero Talent, you can't have two copies of the same clip online. You would need to delete the HD clip, then resubmit the 4K version. Be sure to put a note to the editor explaining what you did and include the id number of the deleted version.

I will be happy to help you with that @Freedom. The Reader's Digest version is that once your account is validated at Fotolia, you can upload your clips using ftp (login and password information is in your account). You would then add your title, keywords and necessary releases using the indexing tool followed by submitting the file for review. Once reviewed, if the clip is approved it will be posted in your portfolio at  both Fotolia and Adobe Stock simultaneously.

More details can be read here: https://us.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors

Feel free to send me an email if you run into any obstacles.

I think most people can read the page.

The question was presumably because the page doesn't answer the questions that anybody shooting video will have. That page gives preferred specifications - I think the question was whether you accept 4096x2304 - for many the answer will mean the difference between contributing and not. Also the "preferred" codec - h264 is really a consumer codec that many won't use either - do you also accept any better editing codecs? 

Are you creating 1080 versions of any 4K clips that are uploaded?

Is the Minimum on this page - https://us.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors/Royalties/Videos - the minimum price or the minimum commission? Is the 35% really a percentage of the actual sale price or a percentage of a re-calculated fictional Fotolia-land price that works out to much less as was the case previously?

There's many video contributors that don't submit to Fotolia due to how dismal they've been in treating contributors in past, a little bit of certainty about these things wouldn't hurt before going through the application process.

Hi Mat,

Sorry, but I didn't found a standard price for 4K and UHD on the site! There is only price for extended licence - 200 credits,  which is the same like HD resolution! Do you mean that the 4K will be available only extended with the same price as HD?

Also, there is no filter for 4K and UHD and I couldn't found my files through the search engine!

I just sold a 4K and I received a $17.50 commission.
There's is a new 'Subscription Video 4K' option.

$17.50 for a 4K clip is a new low.

If this isn't changed I'm deleting my port.

Mat, seems you have forgotten to communicate on subscriptions, which are probably majority of sales.

Please give us an update on what your subscription prices will be. And if they are really that low, please give us an opt out.

You know it is much better if we hear it straight from you. Otherwise, this looks like a trick invitation, the illusion of 70 credits while the real sales are subs...

We have done this dance before, lets avoid problems before they start...please...

Adobe doesnt want to have Fotolias old reputation, right?

If video is being sold on a subscription I'll have to stop uploading.  That's why I stopped uploading video to fotolia years ago.

Another concern is an extended license is being included at the $199 price! Shutterstock sold a clip for me last month where my take was $180! You don't have to give all the additional rights away. Extended rights should be an added cost on top of the $199 price.

Giving extended rights along with the price of a 4k clip is essentially a price cut! Please don't do it.

I've seen the page, that's why I'm asking if you will accept 4096x2304 or not? I don't plan to transcode my entire library just for this. So that's a very specific question which needs a very specific answer.

Also, what's up with subscriptions? Is it true that contributors get as low as 17.50 credits for a 4k clip? If so, count me out.

I can see my 2304p clips on ft and adobestock but i have no idea whether this format is properly supported from a technical standpoint.
FT displays them, so does adobestock, but adobe converts clips (and downconverts? ) and i have no guarantee that the h264 conversion will be technically sound for 2304p files.
After all you either support a resolution, or you dont, and you support that decision from your end,in between a lot can go wrong or perhaps nothing at all (by sheer luck) , but that's hardly professional.

Also i would like to point out that regarding fotolia i was told by some of your staff months ago that the encoder would be improved and the previews would load and display properly,but it doesnt seem to be the case yet.
Doesn't fotolia think that being able to display video in it's intended framerate is paramount to a business aspiring to sell video to a professional audience?
These are VERY basic stuff here and these problems dont exist anywhere on the net since a decade ago let alone a professional agency that sells media.

And what about the 4K subscription price someone mentioned?Is that really happening?As far as i know (and looked) i couldn't find subscription credits or any other deals regarding 4K video or video in general.
Maybe that 17.50usd was a downconverted 720p sale or a reduced commission (due to foreign tax holding) for a 1080p clip?

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for the great questions. I am at PhotoPro Expo in Kentucky right now so I apologize for the gaps between my communication. I will continue to check back here as often as I can. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

"One question - will you accept 4096x2304 - that's a common "real 4k" resolution (16:9 ratio) and all of my 4k work is in that resolution."

Yes, we do and will continue to accept clips at 4096X2304.

Also, what's up with subscriptions? Is it true that contributors get as low as 17.50 credits for a 4k clip? If so, count me out.

No, this is not true. At this time, 4K clips sold at Adobe Stock can only be purchased for $199.99 and the commission rate is 35% which is approximately $70.  I will be sure to communicate in MSG if any changes to this price structure take place. The $17.50 commissions that have been referenced were more than likely the result of internal downloads during testing that happened before the release of 4K to the public. I am not able to verify this through anonymous posts so if you have received a $17.50 commission for 4K through Adobe Stock, please contact me directly via email:
mhayward@adobe.com and I will be happy to look into this for you.

"You know it is much better if we hear it straight from you. Otherwise, this looks like a trick invitation, the illusion of 70 credits while the real sales are subs..."


No tricks. Of course, anything we offer is subject to change in an effort to entice more customers and to drive sales for you. I will continue to do my best to communicate information that impacts the world of Fotolia and Adobe Stock contributors in as timely and transparent a manner as is possible.

I cannot connect to the server via ftp. Which port should I use?

I use Filezilla and it is set to Port 21 by default which works for me. Be sure to check your login and password information here if you haven't done so already: https://us.fotolia.com/Contributor/UploadContent/Ftp

Are you creating 1080 versions of any 4K clips that are uploaded?

Yes


Is the Minimum on this page - https://us.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors/Royalties/Videos - the minimum price or the minimum commission? Is the 35% really a percentage of the actual sale price or a percentage of a re-calculated fictional Fotolia-land price that works out to much less as was the case previously?


Yes, 35% is the commission based on the actual price paid. With photos and illustrations, that price varies based on the quantity of images that the customer commits to purchase. Right now at Adobe Stock the only price available to customers for 4K clips is $199.99. As mentioned before, if that changes or deviates I will be sure to communicate with you as quickly as possible.


Sorry, but I didn't found a standard price for 4K and UHD on the site! There is only price for extended licence - 200 credits,  which is the same like HD resolution! Do you mean that the 4K will be available only extended with the same price as HD?


It sounds like you are looking at Fotolia. Do a search for videos at stock.adobe.com and you should see the price options for HD or 4K clips that are available in 4K. 4K clips are only available through Extended licenses at Fotolia right now. I will let you know if that changes.

I think I have touched on all of the pending questions that are open at this time. If I missed yours, please let me know and I'll get back to you asap. As always, you are all welcome to contact me directly via email: mhayward@adobe.com

Have an amazing day!

-Mat

Hi Mat,

thanks for the quick reply, I really appreciate it.

We are all tired of second guessing what the agencies are really planning to do with our content, we had so many bad experiences.

So, Ill upload with confidence :)

This is something that should be adressed as soon as possible! I've uploaded 4K with the idea that it would be offered as a downsized-to-HD clip at Fotolia. The Extended License should be HD as well, instead of 4K, if the price is "only" 200 credits, aka the same price as a 4K with a standard license!
You could then offer a separate option of buying a 4k without extended rights for 200 credits and a 4K with extended rights for, say, 500 credits.

Please look into this ASAP, because now you're giving away too much rights basically for free.

Mat, thank you very much for your help!

I have more questions if you or anyone can help me with:

1. If I make some video clips exclusive, what are the advantages?

2. Does FT accept editorial video clips? If not, if the clip is the skyline of a major city such as New York City, where some buildings contain corporate logos, will FT accept it as RF without property release?

Thanks again!

My 4K videos are uploaded ok, but than they are occasionally declined because of "upload problem". It would be good to know about any upload problems earlier, so that we can reupload before the files are reviewed.
