Hi everyone, I am new here and I am considering getting into stock video. I was curious what the typical standard size is for video clips selling as stock? I know it varies based on subject, but I am trying to get a feel for the length that video buyers are mainly looking for. Is it somewhere between 5-10 seconds? Or perhaps less or more? And is there sort of a general limit as to a maximum on how long you should make a video clip? I assume if clips are too long buyers may not want them as well. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Look at the site you are interested in, and see their maximum length.  Buyers are not going to want to pay premium money for video for 5 seconds, when they can get something similar for 30.

Thanks. I am considering iStock at the moment, but I notice many videos on there are that have sold well in the range of 5-10 seconds. So would you say there is an ideal length for iStock?
