Our slogan when it comes to uploading your video to www.RevoStock.com is, "Only upload the best." Upload video shot with the best lighting, composition, framing and color. Only upload your very best shots.
VIDEO SOURCEAt RevoStock, we are looking for broadcast quality video. For the most part, we accept video shot on cameras that are "Prosumer" or better. A prosumer camera is semi-professional and typically costs $2000+ and cannot be bought at a local consumer electronics store. However, with the advent of higher quality consumer video cameras we will review video on a camera to camera basis and if the quality stands up to a prosumer/broadcast level we may make an exception.
We will also accept video from Digital SLR cameras that shoot pro quality video.
QUALITY REQUIREMENTSCamera acquired video uploaded to RevoStock should have the following characteristics:
ACCEPTED CODECSIt is important to make sure your video is encoded according to our standards. RevoStock currently accepts video in 3 codecs:
LENGTHRevoStock accepts video/backgrounds/FX/Transitions up to 30 seconds in length. Please remember, every shot does not need to be 30 seconds though. Most video edits are typically less than 1-2 seconds in length. Please make sure that there is a good reason for your shot to be the full 30 seconds. Buyers aren't looking for long videos, they are looking for good videos. Aim for 10-15 seconds for best results.
Minimum Length Requirements:
RevoStock sells the following video sizes/formats:
REVOSTOCK ACCOUNT INFORMATIONYour RevoStock profile/account information MUST BE accurate and fully filled out. We need your full and correct phone and address information before we will be able to approve your account. You may be receiving a verification call from our address/phone verification service.
ROYALTY PAYMENTSRevoStock only makes royalty payments via PayPal or MoneyBookers. It is free to sign up with either of these services.
Your royalties are collected until you choose to withdraw them and receive payment. For instance, you may want to wait until your royalties reach $100 before withdrawing them. To withdraw, click on the "Withdraw Royalties" link under Producer Tools in the left-nav bar. There you may either choose to withdraw these royalties or convert them into credits and receive bonus credits. Royalty withdrawals must be made on or before the 8th of each month. On the 15th of each month we do a mass payment to paypal and MoneyBookers which submits all the royalties for payment at one time. If you have any questions please contact us.

OWNERSHIP:You must be the individual that recorded the video with your camera. If you were not the original videographer, then most likely you are not legally allowed to upload and sell the video. If you are submitting a motion background you must be the creator of that motion background. If you are submitting video that includes some type of artwork, you must be the one who created the artwork, unless it is so old that copyright law does not apply. Typically items created before 1920 fit in under this category.
RE-TOUCHED VIDEO BACKGROUNDS ACQUIRED FROM OTHER STOCK VIDEO SOURCESYou may not purchase video from any other stock video source, re-touch it or change it, and then upload it to our website for sale. This is very important. If you do so, you will be liable.
LOGOS, ADVERTISEMENTS AND COPYRIGHTED GRAPHICSFootage submitted to the Royalty Free Collection may NOT contain any recognizable logo, advertisement, copyrighted graphics, images or artwork.
MODEL RELEASESWe encourage you to submit footage using a model(s), but it must be accompanied by a signed model release. When you upload your footage you will have the chance to upload your model release. Print out the model release, have it filled out and signed. Then scan it, or take a picture of it and upload it when you submit your footage using our model release page. If the person is a minor, you must have a parent or guardian sign the release. If your footage has any recognizable face without a model release, it will be given a re-submit notice. You will then be asked to supply a Model release or to re-categorize it for the Editorial Collection.
EDITORIAL FOOTAGERevoStock also accepts "Editorial" footage. Editorial footage may have recognizable faces without a model release, but must be footage of news-worthy, social, cultural or political events and scenes.
PROPERTY RELEASESProperty releases are typically a bit more complex. Recognizable footage of private property usually taken from the inside or on the property itself requires a property release. While property typically refers to buildings or structures, it could also refer to autos, boats or collectibles. Shooting general footage of the outside of a building from a public place is typically ok.
The key in this case is how uniquely recognizable the property is. For example, general imagery of a building is ok, but if the exact address is shown you would want to get a property release as that property is now uniquely identifiable. Some famous structures are trademarked. It is best to so some research before submitting footage of them.
