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"

If the interaction is just for pre-sales / visualisation and not the actual product.Will i need to pay? We in our company are planning to switch to Unreal. and most of our work will be videos and very few interactive like mobile apps like car customisation apps and so on.Will you charge for it. If yes how much will it be?

I'm not sure that I understand your comments/question. So clearly if your product is linear non-interactive (like a movie), there is no royalty. If your interactive product is internal only, then there is no revenue so there is no royalty. But then you also mention interactive mobile apps so that kind of product can definitely have a royalty. How much of a royalty depends on the revenue.

Thank you, Yes our product will be internal only so as you mentioned there will not be any royalty charged. Thanks for your reply. :)

Hi Atypic, if the product is interactive, do I need to pay a loyalty?

Yes, you would.
