Revisions on fiverr are far more different from what they actually mean in corporate world.
I am still trying to figure out what does a revision mean on fiverr.
[details=Entire Story]For example : I create whiteboard videos. This buyer came to me and ask for a video. He never mentioned anything about custom drawings. When I delivered the video he messaged me this :
[details=Revision1]"00:17 Can we use some other image for this? Image with more clarity maybe.
00:26 This image forms nicely without showing the outline. Please create all images like this in all the videos going forward. Please correct all images that are first showing outline.
00:35 You can write “Delegate” in Green. Adding colors here and there would make videos more interesting.
00:40 You can add some colors here. Maybe to some of the papers on table or the boxes.
1:02 add some colors here too. Maybe to the cups
Rest all seems good!"[/details]
I made all these annoying changes. Annoying because most some of them are custom drawings.
I delivered it and he vanished for 3 long days and when this order was about to auto-complete he came again with these revisions :
00:06 The image starts with a rough outline sketch, which we do not want. We don’t like this style of image formation. Please change all image in this video that form like this…
00:26 All image should form like this. It is not outline, but proper sketch from 1st stroke.
There are more images in this videos that need such correction. Please see the video and you will know.
00:16 Change this image of the Ball. You may use someone playing ‘Bowling’ to represent this part.
00:34 The color of ‘Delegate’ is not nice. Either use ‘Blue’ colour or use the Yellow in ‘LevelUp’ logo.
1:03 Just use color on the coffee mugs. Remove other colors… Plus, choice of color for coffee mug could be revised.
1:11 This image should go out, and then Craftmtcv logo should begin…This was Jai’s suggestions for all future videos to make this transition better. Currently it looks abrupt…[/details]
I was like “WOW” all new changes. Everything was “Rest all seems good!” during the first revision.
So, I spent nearly 5 more hours including the 2 hours of rendering and got a message withing first two hours “Awaiting Video! ”
He then asked me for 2 another formats .mov and .webm along with .mp4 and these too in fullHD.
Anybody who creates fullHD video can understand how much time does a single render take along with the file size and conversion to the other formats.
I politely asked him to order extra with a “smiley”.
[details=His Response]This is unacceptable. I have other sellers who will do work for me.
Let us stop everything.
Cheers to your smart business[/details]
My question is simple :
How many revisions did he ask for 2 or 10 ?
