Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Thanks for your time :)

If the end product is a commercial, it is linear/non-interactive. If that's the case, there is a royalty exclusion under the EULA for all linear/non-interactive media.

What if the product is linear but has the most minor element of interactivity? Most VR films, for example, may require subtle interactivity that the audience isn't even aware of (such as delaying action until the viewer is looking in a particular direction). Thanks!

We're pretty strict on that point; even a little interactivity counts.

Thanks, So the "linear/non-interactive" criteria is "And" not "Or"? It's written ambiguously.

Yes, linear and non-interactive

Great, thanks for the clarification.
