I just uploaded my first video file to ss. It is a 3D animation that contains some sound effects and it got rejected for the following reason: "Audio: Clip contains unnecessary audio or audio that is potentially copyrighted." I don't know which of the two possible issues is the actual reason for rejection.

Do they reject every 3D animation that has audio or should I just try to prove that the audio file I used was created by me?

In most cases they reject anything that has audio. You can submit release forms or question the rejection if you want to, but it might still get rejected. Probably easier to just upload without.

Audio is often only accepted if it's integral to the footage/animation, but even then it really has to add something special to the clip. Otherwise it will be rejected. Probably because of copyright reasons, but also because most editors will likely add their own soundtrack, voice-over or sound effects anyway.

The question is: is the audio absolutely necessary for your clip, of just added for the sake of it? If it's the latter, just remove it and reupload.

Out of roughly 1000 video clips I have online, no more than maybe 10 have audio.  In each case, I felt the video was useless without the audio, and in each case I included " - with sound" in the title and description.

All those clips were accepted on all agencies I have submitted to.

If the audio is not really critical to the video, then drop it and export "video only."  If it really and truly is needed for the video to be useful, then state so in the title. That seems to carry a lot of weight. (as another example, I have submitted photos with "blurry xxx in background/foreground" and had the photos accepted, where they had been rejected until I adde that to the title)
