Nope, iS is artist exclusive for RF.
Getty is image exclusive, in general at least.

Does space stuff just not sell at Shutterstock or haven't you uploaded much there?

I know you sell lots of After Effects templates, are you only including FOOTAGE earnings from Envato or templates too? Would make quite a big difference. Do you have templates also at VB?

Apart from two small templates I uploaded a few months back, all of my After Effects templates have been uploaded in the last month, maybe two. Envato was still my best seller before that. I can't upload those same templates to VB as they're on my exclusive account... so I'd have to remove them from Envato first.

As for Shutterstock, I've been uploading all my non-exclusive stuff there, and have also deleted a dozen or so from my exclusive Envato account so I could upload them there, and a bunch of other sites, but nothing to write home about with regards to sales yet. Fingers crossed!

Even if I don't include templates in my sales, this month so far, Envato exclusive sales have been at least six times more than Pond5. Motion graphics stuff does pretty well there.

Good to know. I'm doing lots of motion graphics right now, but I think I'll wait until they allow author pricing so I can match the other sites.

Selling music has taught me that being non-exclusive always means more $$$ if you like keeping track of 20-50 accounts so I don't want to lock in renders just at one place, since they can take quite a while to do.

The most disturbing thing I've learned from this thread is how many people still submit to iStock, even with all the crap they pull and the insulting smallest % in the industry they pay out. Yes, I realize this means they're a "top 5" income generator for so many, but at what cost in the long term? They're crooked, lying thieves, and perpetuate the weakening of our role in the partnerships we have with the stock companies. Anyone still submitting to them is contributing to the demise of all of our futures, doing what we do.

Ha ha, that's a bit overkill!
In my case and I'm sure for many others too,  99% of my portfolio is in the signature collection and the royalties and price per clip is one of the most expensive in the industry. It's the smaller sites with HD clips for $10 and 4K for $25 that scares me.
OK I'm not uploading content to istock now as your right the cut for non exclusives is shite, but I think they are changing this soon for the better.
