Election 2016 and Farm Puppets Content Packs

Post by Víctor Paredes » Thu May 05, 2016 8:57 pm

Hi everyone,
Today we are releasing two content packs for Anime Studio:
Election Pack 2016 and Farm Puppets

I was in charge of the Farm Puppets pack. It's designed to be easy to use, specially for kids and new users.
Even when it's not the most complex work I have created, there are some little tricks on them I know you will like.
And there's one detail I like a lot: All the characters share almost the same bone structure. That means you can copy and paste keyframes between them, so if you make an animation, you can easily reproduce it in all the characters you want.

The Election pack was designed by Jim Mills (who you probably know) and it's great and I totally recommend it. The character design is funny and well done. Also, the way he creates complex vector drawings is great to investigate. If you are an advanced user looking for inspiration for your own content, I totally recommend you to take a look on it.

I hope you like them.

I did buy the election pack. The licensing regarding copyright seems to allow personal use only. I interpret this to mean commercial use is prohibited.

Are you allowed to sell animations made using this product? (I don't think so.)
Are you allowed to post a video to YouTube (or anywhere else) ? (I don't think so.)

Thanks for the heads up regarding the usage rights Rocky53204! Perhaps such details about usage should be part of the product description for any and all content packs.

They look great :)

I do agree, EVERY product on the site should have a section to describe their usage restrictions... I have a feeling though that it mainly concerns resale? Creating your own animations for youtube or even a commercial client (as stock) shouldn't really be restricted in my personal opinion, in all cases it should be clearly layed out on the product page before purchase.

OK, asked about this and:

- You are free to create and sell videos made using the content of the pack.
- What you can't do is to re-sell the files from the content pack (.anime and other).

If you have any other question, please don't hesitate to ask.

It says what it says... " The ELECTION PACK 2016 are protected by United States and international copyright laws and treaties. All rights reserved."

A verbal simply won't do in a copyright situation.

I bought this expecting full rights of re-use which Smith freely grants. This package comes from a different company.

The rights to the content are reserved, it doesn't become yours but you're free to use it (just not resell it)

With great respect to both of you I agree to disagree... that may have been their intent but my interpretation precludes such use.

"6. Copyright & Trademark Notice
All title and copyrights in and to the ELECTION PACK 2016, including without limitation, its graphics, photographs, animations, video, images, text, design elements, and any materials used or downloaded (excluding any third party materials and third party materials downloaded from any third party linked site) from the ELECTION PACK 2016, in any form (e.g., downloaded, print and other media), are proprietary to and are exclusively owned by MARKET FIVE (and their respective applicable licensors). The ELECTION PACK 2016 are protected by United States and international copyright laws and treaties. All rights reserved.


If a vendor intends to give you commercial rights to your rendered animations they should clearly say so.
Rather than beat this subject to death I withdraw... This is my last posting on this issue.

I have to agree with Rocky. That EULA is missing the critical Licensing of Use section that explicitly states what lawful use the user can make of it. The only thing this says is the restrictions on use, which does include "for personal use only". I would not use this in commercial work until Market Five corrects this, and if they seemed unresponsive after emailing them (address at the bottom of the EULA), I would demand a full refund.

Just like they seek to protect their work, the end user must also protect the commercial work (or even just YouTube revenue) made using their product.

OK, the EULA has been updated to be more clear about what you can do with the pack. This updated License/EULA for the Election Pack will be also incorporated in the download file.
Thank you everyone for pointing this issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
