Our constant focus has always been to make it as easy as possible for anyone to start selling video straight to their audience. For the past two years, we’ve worked closely with filmmakers and publishers to create the best platform for direct internet distribution…and we were adding and designing as we went. Inevitably, it came time to simplify and optimize.
Today, we’re thrilled to launch a brand new Publisher Admin. Our creative director Chad Pugh says, “We were able to learn from so many smart filmmakers who helped us improve the whole experience.” We’ve streamlined the video publishing process and made it easier to navigate. We’ve integrated tons of help and guidance, because we’ve seen that education is really important for our users’ success. We’ve optimized for mobile so publishers can ogle their stats and sales data on the go. The new Publisher Admin is built for all types of publishers, whether they’re selling video, or just using free features — sending screeners, building websites, maintaining a mailing list, or otherwise.
"We built the new Publisher Admin for maximum dev and design efficiency, so we can ship more features, faster — and better — than before," said VHX co-founder Casey Pugh. "Which is good, because we have some seriously big new features in the pipeline."
I love my boy, but I’m also loving dontstaylong's 3D camera.
I made this Sterogram a little while ago and found it surprisingly easy to do! You can make a black & white Stereogram Mask using 3D objects in Photoshop by changing the scene style to "Depth Mask" - or swipe existing masks from the internet. Then just go to this site, upload your mask and find a pattern that feels most offensive. Here’s a couple Pro-Tips

We’re big believers in transparency and knowledge-sharing, and it’s time to put our
moneyrevenue stats where our mouth is. Today we’re launching VHX Stats, which will update daily, so you can watch the market grow as more people sell films and video content directly to fans.
The numbers that we’re putting out into the world so far are:
- Number of titles for sale
- VHX total gross revenue
- Number of total transactions
- Number of customers who’ve bought more than one title from VHX (something we want to improve)
- Sales by geographic region
…with more to come. Creators want to have a conversation about the economics of selling their work, and this is our small contribution. Take a look, ask questions, and help us make it better.
Just launched the VHX Stats page! Check out those #s, but focus on the SVG, gradient & globe animations @stevenbone and I got made http://vhx.tv/stats
