Kickstarter bans 3D renderings

The popular crowd-funding service Kickstarter has banned all 3D renderings and animations…

“Product simulations are prohibited. Projects cannot simulate events to demonstrate what a product might do in the future. Products can only be shown performing actions that they’re able to perform in their current state of development.”

“Product renderings are prohibited. Product images must be photos of the prototype as it currently exists.”

  1. I guess you have to show what people are actually funding, rather than what they might (if it all works) be funding. Makes sense, I suppose, and probably stops them breaking some regulation or other about raising investment on the basis of false promises.

  2. But I still don’t understand; does this mean I can’t put trailer there (with actual scenes from animated pilot episode of serial I need funding)? Based on what will anyone be interested to give me a billion or two?!

  3. I think you’re right. An artist’s rendering is for things yet to be developed, so it probably caused a few problems if those features or whatever didn’t work out.
