Selling 3D Animations

(1/8) > >>

JohnTravolski:
I've been making abstract 3D animations (purely as a hobby) for about five years now, and last summer (July 2019) I became interested in submitting them to the various stock sites. Currently, I submit them to Adobe Stock, Shutterstock, Pond5, iStock, and Dreamstime. With around 320 videos I've probably earned about $1000 over these past nine months, with most of my sales on Shutterstock. I've found these types of videos tend to sell somewhat often on Shutterstock but extraordinarily rarely on the other sites. I'm not sure why.

I was wondering if there were other non-exclusive sites that some of you may have had luck with when it comes to submitting video. I know that not everyone here does 3D, but I'm just curious to hear your perspectives.

Do you keep your prices relatively similar to Shutterstock and Adobe's pricing? Or do you sell them for a lot lower? It seems like most stock footage on Videohive is being sold for a lot less.

Videohive is a joke. $11 (or less) for a 3D render? Yeah right, one week of rendering and you can earn pennies? No way, I'll stay with Adobe.

with Blender Eeevee or Element3D, render time is always under one hour, if we talk about 3d abstract or conceptual renders.
With Cycles (if you nees realism), about a couple of hours or a bit more.
15/30 seconds 4K, on a 16 cores i9 cpu, rtx 4000 quadro laptop.
I think that a week is a bit too much!
What engine are you using? and what are your pc specs?
