    Hello Katie, this would depend on your phone. We currently don't have a mobile based Pond5 or an app, so we would recommend you download the clip through your account on your computer, and then transfer it to your phone if you need it on there.

    Hey emdotcollins, I see that you purchased an After Effects file. Please know that Adobe AE software is required in order to edit this file. If you have this software installed to your desktop, there should be nothing preventing the file downloading.

    Are you using mac or a windows? If you are on windows, (which doesn’t have codec prores required), you will need to instal quicktime player. Quicktime player is an official programme from Apple, which you can download here --> 
    Once downloaded, restart and try opening the template again and your software should be able to read the mov file.

    Any other questions, please get in touch with our support team and we'll be happy to assist!

    Please can you 'adjust some settings at your end' for me so I can actually download my purchase?? I see that I am not the only one, a lot of people need you to 'adjust some settings' for them so that they can presumably do what the website should do all along. This is not a very nice customer experience, and will not encourage repeat business. I have contacted you at the support email to please set up a wetransfer for me to get the file. Please action this ASAP as I am in the middle of the project now, I was not expecting to have to wait for assets, I got them instantly from other sites. Thanks!!
