Why is everyone so cut up about istock??? you have videohive selling clips for $6 and Getty selling clips for $1000's

The market is complex and no one can control it. We'd like to think we can but we can't.

We have low budget bloggers buying on videohive and film and TV companies buying on Getty. You need the cheep and the expensive.

istock are just middle of the road.

A'd say get over it and move on. The industry never stops.

When someone goes big and starts manipulating whole market with new prices, you'll understand how disturbing is any new price dropping and cutting comisions of contributors.

And people say VideoHive is bad... there you'd get $9 if you're non-exclusive, and $12.5 to $17.50 for a 4K sale!

Yes, Spacey, it is very bad because on P5, I get $37.5 for non-exclusive HD clips. Let me add: sometimes it is "low-hanging-fruit" type of clips.

Somehow I don't think istock are in that league.
I've been in this industry long enough to realize that I can't control things that can't be controlled. If a stock agency does something awful and people think the world will end some other agency will pick up the pieces and things move on. It's a forever evolving cycle.

Fruit is fruit, no matter where it hangs. I'd rather have some low hanging fruit rather than none... in conjunction with my mid and high hanging fruit.

If gutter royalties are okay with you then why did you start this thread?

I wanted to confirm that 4K was meant to be the same price as HD. I thought that was pretty clear, obviously not.

You better hurry up.
Soon 4k will be half price than HD

when companies make certain behaviors:

- restricting the number of files you can upload
- removing copyright notices
- having the same pricing for multiple formats or sizes
- etc

it is a sign the stock footage company is going through financial hardship. istock has always been slow to adjust to changes in the marketplace.

Are you sure about that? Maybe not the same pricing bit... but how do they get more money by removing copyright notices and restricting the number of files you can upload? Maybe they just got fed up of all the s**t that keeps getting submitted, and though... "Right, I think 10m is enough for anyone... how about we now focus on quality rather than quantity?". I'd say that was evidence of a good business strategy rather than of financial hardship.

We just have to look at what happened to the photo market to see what kind of future is cooking for video.

Right. And it's already happening.
