Hey Folks,
Here's Video #2, week 2 of my insane project.

Lo-poly is on purpose.
Flicker is an accident but i like it. I've learn the GI rendering file since and I use it sometimes...
Poor antialiasing is my mistake. It was too late to go back, I hope you'll forgive me !

Youtube is definitely washing out some details. I'll have to find a solution for that...

So, here it is. Comments, feedback and criticism welcome of course !

Hah, used this way the flickering and low detail actually work. Cool!

We had a lot of trouble with YouTube and our latest video, Hannes' tornado. YT was compressing the hell out of it. One fix was to upsample in post and then upload a 4k version to YT. The other option was to use Vimeo, which preserved the quality much better.

Hey, cool you like it !
Indeed itís the kind of situation where it has to be either top quality, either Lo fi  on purpose. The inbetween here didnít work. Itís nice to have a positive feedback because people around me were not convinced by the lo poly thing !

Yeah Vimeo is way better. I may switch. On the other hand YouTube is a better place to be seen for a musician. I think iíll try to oversample, thanks for the tip !

Welcome to the forum and what a cracking start! Loved the music (thought you might be Jean Michelle-Jarre). Animations are great with the music following the terrain - very compelling!
Every problem is an opportunity, but there are so many opportunities it is a problem!

Hi there,
Here's a new one. The music is slightly different this time.

Still lo-fi. I'm considering going HD but I have 12 more landscapes that are already rendered... I dont know yet.



By the way, Shouldn't I post in TG Animation rather than Image Sharing ?
