new pay component sites

a couple of new pay-for-component sites have entered the market, and both of them are looking for developers to supply content (developers get paid either outright for their work or by a commission on each sale).

by the fontsforflash.com crew, this site currently has a single component only--a scrollpane that supports pixel fonts and has some features not offered in the flash mx scrollpane.

by author scott hamlin, backed by well known clip-art provider, art today. sports hundreds of canned animations, buttons, components, and other ready-made flash assets. works on a subscription model...1 month for US$29.95 up to 12 months for US$129.95.

should be interesting to see how the pay market works out, particularly with the amount of free content available at other sites (http://www.flashcomponents.net/, http://www.flashcomponent.com/, and the macromedia flash exchange, just to name a few).
