And no, Adobe was very clear. This is the EXACT text of the message:
The text said:
Quote from: Adobe
You've got X eligible assets that could earn up to X upfront if seltected for the free selection.
No one expect you thought he'd definitely get the possible maximum amount, not for photos, not for vectors and not for videos.
1. We are not in court.
2. This marketing stunt greatly offended the authors who agreed to participate. If Adobe initially planned to accept 0 or several videos from people, you need to write about it. Then most of the authors would have responded by refusing to participate in the program.
3. Are you an Adobe lawyer?

Yes the stunt was offensive, but only because they thought we contributors love to give stuff away for a measly $8 to be featured in a free collection... Oh, that's not what you meant?
No, that's not what I meant at all. I meant that it's one thing to give away 1-10 videos for $8, and another thing to give away 200-1000 videos for $8. So it makes no sense to give a few videos, but there are 1000, because. 8x1000=8000 dollars.

If 1000 videos cannot gather at least 36 downloads of $28 in a year, then yes, giving them away for $8 is an okay deal. But then you probably have some quality issues with your portfolio to worry about.
What is the size of your video portfolio? How many videos do you sell per year?
You probably did not know, but adobe takes into its free collection only the video that has not been sold even once in the last year.
Perhaps you want to say that all your videos are sold within a year. Which I highly doubt.

While they did say that, I had videos eligible for nomination that had 0, 1 and 2 sales.

me too...even videos that had 3 sales and videos uploaded within 6 months that we can consider brand new videos with a good chance to have a sale soon...
I think that adobe wants the free collection to be appealing to the viewer that's why the choose only good staff....

I have 500+ videos. And about 100 video sales I think, 7x 70, 40x 20-28 range and many below 20 all the way down to 2.80.
So they definitely did not all sell, I have a couple of strong sellers and many duds, but Adobe also nominated strong sellers that have been sold at least once this year. So giving up those videos would be a bad choice.

If out of 500+ videos you only sell 10-20 videos, and the number of these sales is 100, then 480 videos are not of high quality. It if to argue following your logic.

Will there be any new additions to the collection in December? Program closed?

I'm guessing that...

2. Is that all, or will you also choose next month? How many more months will the selection last?

Plus

I do not anticipate more selections being made this round.

Plus no new updates, and it being the 29th of December... means that's almost certainly a no. I'm sure you'll be informed here, and/or via email, if that changes.

This work devaluation only happens once a year, man!
You are really desperate to sell your low demand items!

Today I received an email that about 30 of my videos have been added to the free collection. Adobe pays me money for this, but I still dont see an increase in the amount of income in my account.
It's strange that suddenly in June Adobe decided to post a my new video.
Why not every month then?

Thanks for calling this out @Stoker2014. Yes, the Free collection team has selected another wave of video clips from the files you nominated in October to fill gaps identified in the collection. The email you received went out before the move into Free has happened. We expect the selected clips to be switched soon. Once done, the payment of $8 per clip will be automatically added to your account balance. I'll post an update here when that process is complete.

Thanks again,

Mat Hayward

When that happened? I had no notification about video. I did nominate photos but had no idea video is nominated as well. Was that at same time with photos and on default is it nominated or i would have to swich it to nominate all option ? Looks like i missed Video nomination...

I've got some money to my account yesterday but no email notification.

Should I expect the email to come? I'm completely in the dark what I'm being paid for. Is it for photos I nominated at the beginning of June? Is it for videos? No idea.

Anyone else with the same situation?

If you received money yesterday, then they came for the nominated video. This program opened and closed in October 2022. Adobe does not decipher which videos were selected. If you didn't receive money yesterday, then your video was not nominated.

Yes me too. I received a nice sum of money yesterday but no email notification. I went through my spam and trash but I didn't receive any adobe email. It would be nice to know how many and which clips were selected just out of curiosity.

What do you mean October 2022 ? You mean they picked videos year ago and just now adding them to free collection ? I thought it's new campaign. Have no recollection what videos of mine got picked year ago...

Yes exactly. In the letter, they wrote that they decided in June to select more video from what was agreed with the authors in October 2022. Nothing new, everything old. And in October, they nominated far from everything that they chose.

Same here. Checked everything, no email notification anywhere, including mail server of my mail host. Just got money yesterday with no notification whatsoever.
