Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to know about gallereplay’s licenses?
All stock video loop licenses that can be purchased directly via our website are non-exclusive. There are neither geographic nor time-related restrictions (we grant worldwide rights in perpetuity), however each license is only valid for one-time use. If you would like to use a video loop as part of several different projects, you have the option of purchasing an Unlimited license. If you require exclusive rights to a video loop, it is possible to negotiate a Market Freeze for a set period of time - please write us an E-Mail with the details to receive a quote.
For a more extensive overview of our licenses, please see §5 of our Terms and Conditions.
What does royalty-free mean?
All of gallereplay’s licences are royalty-free. We offer video loops for a fixed price, based solely on the size of the customer’s company and the type of medium. The license holder has the right to single use, worldwide and in perpetuity. If the “unlimited” option is selected, the cinemagraph can be used without restriction in various media.
How does your pricing work?
All our stock video loops are priced consistently. Prices are determined primarily by two factors: the size of the company that you are licensing for and how you will use the video loop. On the purchase page of any video loop you’ll find two drop-down menus. To calculate what it would cost to license a video loop, select the options that correspond to your project from these two drop-downs. Remember to tick Unlimited under the Extended Options if you would like to use the video loop for more than one project.
How are the video loops delivered?
Once your payment has been processed, you’ll receive a download link via E-Mail (usually within a few moments), which is valid for 48 hours. The downloaded .zip file will contain .mp4 and .webm versions of your video loop, delivered in three resolutions: Full HD (1920x1080px), a mid-sized resolution (1280x720px), and a thumbnail resolution (576x324px). All resolutions are compressed to a small file size to ensure they load quickly on websites. Also included is the original, uncompressed file with a high bitrate, which is sometimes available in 4K (you can check the available resolutions on the purchase page of each video loop). Furthermore, you’ll find .jpg and .gif fallback files.
How do custom productions work?
We work with professional video loop artists on 6 continents to create custom visuals for brands and enterprise clients. Our “gallereplayers" specialise in a variety of genres, so no matter what kind of video loop you’re after (food, sports, children, nature, etc), we have a specialist who can bring your vision to life. Typically a video loop or series of cinemagraphs can be turned around in 2-4 weeks. The stages of production are as follows:
1. In a phone call or meeting we discuss your needs, concepts, plans and anything else related to the visuals and their use.
2. Based on this conversation, we will create a detailed briefing, which we’ll ask you to approve.
3. We select and brief a fitting artist from our roster to produce the video loop.
4. Together with the artist we organise anything required for the shoot, such as studio space, models, props, wardrobe, etc.
5. The artist captures and edits an advanced draft of the video loop, which we send to you for feedback.
6. If necessary, the artist makes corresponding edits and we format the final video loop correctly so that it’s ready to go and optimized for your needs.
Prices depend on the complexity of the visual, the total number of video loops you are commissioning, and which license you require. For a custom quote, please fill out the form on our Custom Creation page.
