Forum: stock_footage Subject: About sound and the Derive function!

Hello, I just wanted to make an observation about sound and the Derive function within the Archive. When I first started posting stock footage clips, I noticed that silent clips would not auto derive. All that would show was my original version. I started adding a small sound byte to the beginning of each clip and the auto derive function worked great again. I decided sound was needed to trigger the automatic derive function. The derived versions of the clip are very useful. Derive is a great function since it makes a version of the clip that allows streaming of the video without a full download. I suggest that if you wish any clip you post here to auto derive, that you may need to put some sort of sound to it. A simple "Bing" as the clip begins might be enough. Of course. the staff of the Archive may correct me on these observations. There is probably a better way to do this, I just haven't figured it out. I just wanted to share this simple observation and possible fix with the other people on the Forum.
