I am submitting videos to various different agencies. Unfortunately, they do not all have the same max size requirement, which means a single export cannot suit them all, unless I settle for the same lesser quality file (smallest in size) being also sent to the agencies that would otherwise allow bigger files than that.

Generally, in order to suit all agency size requirements, shorter files can be exported in these two codecs: ProRes 422 HQ & ProRes 422 (422 for those few agencies that find 422 HQ export too big), while longer ones have to be exported in ProRes 422 & ProRes 422 LT (LT for those agencies that find 422 export too big).

I don't want to export all files under 3500 Mb in size, just because Dreamstime for instance does not accept bigger files than that. For contrast, iStock allows 5000 Mb.

Is there any way I could export 2 or 3 versions (covering the max size requirements by the agencies), then have Stocksubmitter automatically send the best quality file available to each agency, based on their limitations?


SUMMARY / TLDR:
Can I provide Stocksubmitter with several versions of the same project (differently encoded), then have it automatically submit different files to different agencies based on their size/codec limitations, while stile have it count as the same file in StockSubmitter library of submissions (for future metadata editing and tracking purposes).

Thanks!

Unfortunately, there is no automatic way to do so.
I would recommend keeping videos of different quality in different folders and send those folders to different sets of agencies.
If you would like to copy the metadata between those different copies of the same footage, you can just copy the JPEG files from one folder to another: as long as filenames match the program will be able to use metadata from them.

 Thank you for your reply Niakris. Maybe an idea for future development. Ability to select several versions under the same submission (like you have for releases) and have stocksubmitter (or even us, manually) chose which version gets sent to which agency. You could even add this extended functionality as an in-app purchase to warrant the development...

We do not charge extra money for any additional functionality of the StockSubmitter app besides the normal subscription fees :)
However, priority of developing a feature depends on how many users would benefit from it and I didn't hear anyone requesting this feature so far so I cannot promise any estimations of how soon could it be implemented.

That's the problem with microstock really... most people don't care much about the technical quality of their submissions, as long as they get accepted. I understand what you're saying though. Thanks for a great product!
