We are pleased to announce that Adobe Stock is now selling HD video content, providing you with the opportunity to reach Adobes large audience of video users. Starting today, HD video files are available to Adobe Stock members for $79.99 USD.

The standard royalty rate for all Adobe Stock video sales is 35%. Those of you that are ranked Emerald or above prior to November 23 will receive a rate of 40% to reflect your past achievements and contributions. As with all Adobe Stock sales, your commissions are paid directly into your Fotolia account.

There is high demand for video in the industry. We are looking for 5-60 second clips of lifestyle/people, sports, aerial, nature, and general b-roll.

Clips will be sold through stock.adobe.com as well as directly through After Effects CC and Premiere Pro CC. Users will now be able to search for and license videos directly in their libraries panel, making for the most streamlined and efficient purchasing experience in the industry.

Some of you have noticed a change in the language of your sales emails regarding subscriptions vs. on-demand. Currently, the system is set up to report all Adobe Stock sales including videos as though they are part of a subscription even though they are not. The language in the emails has been changed, but the stats in your "my sales" page are still going to be shown as subscription sales for the time being. Please note that the engineering team is working to fix this and the issue should be resolved in the next several days.

As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions, comments or concerns.

Mat i see some of my clips offered at 4096X2304 at this price.
Actually only the hd clips show up on the adobe search but the 4K clips can also be found below  if you click on them at the "More From This Series" space below the main preview clip.
Are they for purchase as well at this resolution or adobe only offers a downconverted hd clip?
If yes why not display them as well in the main search results?

Well I haven't sold a single video file yet! Just kidding, great to see our stuff on Adobe Stock. When do we get a discount on Adobe Creative Cloud?

It would be awesome if we could sell footage from our Adobe Stock portfolio directly through our Adobe Portfolio / Behance site.

Great news, thanks Mat.

Just one question: why is there such a big price difference between US and EU sales, could you please explain or confirm?
In the email I received it reads:

Quote
The royalty rate for footage licensed at Adobe Stock is 35%, exceeding the royalty rate for stock photos. HD video files at Adobe Stock will be available for 59.99 in Europe.
Fotolia contributors currently ranked Emerald and above (as of November 30th) will receive +5% higher royalties (40%) for videos sold at Adobe Stock to reflect your achievements and contributions.

I can't access the US site of Adobe Stock to check the pricing but according to your statement above:

If
1$ = 0.94 (today)

79.99$ = 75.19

So we receive:

35% of 79.99$ (US sales) = 27.99$

vs.

35% of 59.99 (EU sales) = 20.996 = 22.336$

Is that correct or I do miss something?
Thanks for the answer!

Mat, I see my 4K content for sale on the stock.adobe.com site for 59.99 Euro.

Not cool!

I only uploaded 4K stuff to Fotolia recently because I saw the 4K resolution offered at the Enhanced License price for 200 credits.

If 4K stays at 59.99 Euro at Adobe Stock I will remove my 4K content.

Please advise.

Mat: The UK price is 39.99 the US price is $79.99  This is a big difference.

As I am based in UK would I get the US price if a buyer buys in $ in US?

Thanks for any clarification.

4K clips for $79.99 - Not cool.

Shame on you Adobe we were expecting more from you.
Looks like we're screwed yet again  :(

Ok i think im screwed here.59euros is 63 hd.
If that's the price for 4K as well fotolia should confirm and explain asap so i can delete my port there and get on with my life.
Enough of this crap.

Thanks for the clarification,yes in that regard all is fair i guess.

-But still what happens to files that have originated from 4K?Can someone purchase them at all?

-If they can't be purchased why are they showing in search results even if only as relevant clips (if they show up by luck that is) .

-Should we wait or reupload in hd?

Mat,

I'm confused.

In the US 4K clips (3840 x 2160) are available to purchase for $79.99

There is no mention of a HD 1920 x 1080 format if the clip was only uploaded to Fotolia as 4K.

Are you saying that even though the Adobe website says 3840 x 2160 the customer gets 1920 x 1080 ?
If so, that's very misleading and extremely confusing.

Please clarify.

I have uploaded 4K clips (4096x2304) which were automatically downsized to HD (1920x1080) and offered for 60 credits, although when you buy an Extended License (200 credits) , you (apparently) get a 4K clip.

Please clarify whether or not these 4K clips are 'accidentally' being seen as an HD sale in Adobe Stock, as it certainly appears to be the case!  >:(

Mat, can you tell us yet what the 4k pricing will be?
Yes Mat, please push for this information. I assume, as we are not allowed to double upload our clips, each in HD and 4K, to be able to delete 4K later if Adobe decides to keep the price at $79.99 or in that area, I would have to hold back all of my uploads now until pricing for 4K is set.

Otherwise it would be great if we could upload HD files that could be replaced with the 4K versions later to maintain clip IDs.

Thanks.

(...) prices are $79.99 USD or 59.99 EUR based on where the purchase is made.

This could be taken as yet another sign for the European market to be a rather hard sell for video. Lots of other info suggests the exact same thing anyway. Still interested to see how this goes, good news in so far! Thanks, @MatHayward

Oh, and it's 59.99 -- please put the euro sign where it belongs: preceding the numerals, just like you do with dollar signs.

so I take this to mean that "common" Fotolia accounts are included with this? (That question hadn't been addressed by existing answers here.) Would be glad to know before I bother uploading new clips...

Thanks.

@Mackie, All Fotolia portfolios are mirrored at Adobe Stock. When you clips are approved at Fotolia, they are made available for sale via Adobe Stock also.

I just received a $1.74 hd subscription video commission.  I remember opting out of video subscriptions years ago.  I don't see an opt out button anymore.  Is anyone else having this problem?  Is there still an opt out?

The only one i see is to opt out of DPC.
Strange, i would swear there was one for subs too until a few days ago.

They could do much more.  No idea why they didn't start a new site instead of buying one that has so many things wrong with it.  Lots of us saw an enormous fall in sales compared to other sites and mine haven't recovered at all since Adobe took over.

I guess I just had my first video sale through Adobe, since my commission is $28 for an HD clip, instead of the usual $25.
35% x $79.99 ~ $28

Where on FT does it describe video pricing?  On the indexing page, I see V_S Price (12-12) and V_X Price (200-200).  What does that mean?

And why can't they read the meta-data in the file?  No description or keywords come across.

Sean, Google is your friend: https://www.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors/Royalties/Videos There you will see the prices and commission.
No idea where you are submitting your footage but it's not uncommon for footage sites to not read the meta-data. Many support CSV files though.

And what bugs were you referring to earlier in this thread?

Thx.  I know SS doesn't, but Pond does.  How hard can it be?

The bugs about 4k and other things.

Even CanStockPhoto, a small site with virtually no major work done on it in years can read the meta-data out of video's uploaded there.

I am simply amazed the big guys haven't bothered with that yet.

This is a great news!

Just noticed that all my HD Fotolia videos appearing in the Adobe stock but still 4Kvideos are missing. When this will be fixed?

It is a shame that adobe stock is not separate from fotolia. You should really get your csv/xml batch meta import feature worked out instead of building new website under different names.
