    Don’t know what to include in your readme.txt? Here is a template text file for you to download and use. Just replace and edit the information.

    Remember to rename the file to readme.txt before bundling it with your template!

    Template's video preview – what can you use?Video previews are the first point of contact between your template and your potential buyers. They are the ones that will attract, entice and convince buyers that your template will be useful. Show how your template will look as an end product by filling in the placeholder images and adding music in the video preview.

    But what can you use? The 2 simple rules are:

    1. you should use only assets that you own or you have the license or rights to, or
    2. you can use watermarked Elements from our MotionElements stock video and stock music marketplace, as long as you credit the Elements’ Contributors in your template description and “read-me” file.
