The subscription price is high. Make it $16 a month and unlimited downloads. There will be more buyers and authors will receive more profits.

Generally, subscriptions lead to extremely low amounts being paid to contributors. Not happy (especially with regards to 4k videos which normally command vey high prices.) Though I guess it wouldn't be as bad as SS who offer cents per video download.

Overall, the stock video situation continues to get worse across all agencies. I wish it was like the old days where every video sale meant big dollars.

This is pretty disappointing tbh. I have already had a bunch of 4K sales at $2.80 in December, so they must have been trialling it then.

Hi Everyone,

Adobe Stocks 4K video clips will now be offered alongside HD clips for licensing as part of Adobe Stock subscriptions. This change will simplify the offering for Stock customers, allowing them to license HD and 4K video content as well as standard images, templates, 3D, and audio tracks using their subscriptions.
 
There is no change to the current royalty rate. For information about compensation, please visit our Royalties page.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward

Is there any difference in how many HD or 4K videos buyers get for subscription?  Is HD and 4K clip treated as the same price for subscription?  If so, I would only upload HD clips.  I deleted all my videos in May, but uploaded a few clips recently.  I'll delete 4K clips and upload them in HD only if I don't get at least 2x for 4K video sub.

I re-uploaded about 20 videos recently, but I just deleted all 4k videos.  I'll re-upload them in HD only to avoid my 4k videos getting snatched for a few dollars.  I make $120 per 4k video sale on Pond5 Exclusive.  Got to protect my price.

This is actually part of my business plan as of late: only submitting HD clips to subscription agencies.

But it's starting to get hard to find an agency that doesn't have a subscription option these days.

That makes sense.  If they want a 4k clip, buy at Pond5.  Only crappy HD clips will be available for video subs from me.

Yes, I think I may start removing my 4K clips too, and not submit future ones. The subscription model really only benefit the company, not the contributor.

That's been my strategy on SS for a very long time - only submitting HD clips and sending 4k clips elsewhere. It's unbelievable that I may be forced to do the same thing with AS.

You are ahead of us!!!   We should all submit only HD clips to Adobe Stock now because they don't give us extra for 4k clips.  That's disgusting.

It would be nice to have an option for contributors to allow/prohibit the sale of 4K by subscription. Or pay for 4K by subscription at double price.

Isn't the solution to start uploading 8k for the pros?

I mean it is the way things evolve, while hd is still usable, many now prefer 4k, Adobe is reacting to that by making 4k the mainstream choice.

I am not a video pro, but my personal opinion or choice would be to focus on the higher quality for the new situation.

I am still uploading a mix of 4k and hd, but as soon as I can afford a simple 8k camera, I will focus on that.

Or is that a silly idea?

Adobe doesn't sell 8K though.

I don't know if it makes sense in the microstock market.
Maybe highly professional video recording for TV commercials but that's a different league.

I think the same could have been said for images years ago.
The pros should just buy a 100mp Hasselblad for 10k and then it's the solution. No it wasn't. It's like cracking a nut with a sledgehammer.

They should have just limited the subscription model to small resolutions years ago. Most of the content is used online anyway.
What is happening again is simply a price war on the backs of the contributors in order to gain market shares.

I had first considered entering the video market, but that no longer makes any economic sense.
Good videos are much more expensive and take longer time to be produced than pictures.
In max. 3 years, videos will be also sold for 99 cents everywhere. If AI video generation is well developed by then, I would get in, but not before.

"I had first considered entering the video market, but that no longer makes any economic sense."

There are only 60?? 100 million ?? videos over all agencies compared to 1 billion stock images.

The video market is still wide open and especially with editorial selling well and being safe from ai, you are leaving a lot of money on the table. Especially if adding a few quick video clips, even with a smartphone, can easily be done while shooting regular photos.

Yesterday I sold two editorial videos, one for 37.82, the other for 5.07. Both were handheld editorial clips taken with my iphone a few years ago.

Your choice, but I think to maximise income video is the easiest thing you can add to the mix.

Correct solution!
But as I already wrote, your subscription is very expensive. In order for your subscription to generate good income, go to the pricing scheme of envato or storyblocks.

What is the sub price now for HD and 4k video?
 
Is there a difference?

I couldn't find it.

Wow you seem to be a real pro economist. So I suppose you upload all your images to Unsplash and receive unlimited money in return? Or are you just an image buyer trolling these stock contrib forums?

storyblocks and envato are being regularly noted as the by far best selling video agency for many.

But it is difficult for amateurs to get in.

D'accord. It only makes sense for extreme power contributors with already produced 100k+ videos.
Then the sheer mass outweighs the low price.

But if I'm a creative amateur starting from the scratch, then I need enough revenues for new in-demand props, models, travel locations, better equipment, etc.

Otherwise, it's a loss-making business right from the start.
