Title: Variable HD Prices Again???
Post by: uvox4 on October 10, 2021, 13:52
I just noticed that the HD versions of some my 4k clips have various price ranges. I aways have the same price for 4k so the HD version will be half of it. Some are higher and some lower. Have P5 been changing prices again?

That happens to me all the time, some at asking price and others well below.  The negotiate with bigger clients for cheaper pricing nd we agree to that when we upload.  They also will lower your price to the lowest of other micros if your content is found there.  And sometimes you get more than your asking price based on negotiated rates and, I assume, how the image is used.

Thats not what I am saying. I am aware of this. The HD footage should be set at half of the 4k clip when you edit them. But when I looked at some clips for sale recently, the normal selling price is different and has changed. Has this happened to anyone else. Unless you go into the edit tab on the Upload tab you will not see the HD price.

Yes, they change your pricing. If you price something at $79 and it is priced at $59 elsewhere, they will change your prices. Itís happened to a lot of my footage.  However, if your pricing on P5 is as low as anywhere else, then I donít have an answer, but itísmworth writing them to find out.
