Nice work, man.
I've fooled around with Cinema 4D here and there (nowhere near at your level) so I know how labor intensive a video like that is.
As for YouTube compression, I pulled Talking Head Games (a comedy web series I did a few years back) off of YouTube and Vimeo and just host it locally on my website using MediaPlayer's css and simple html5 tags. I'm getting significantly better quality because what I rendered is what I get versus it being processed yet again through their own render engines.
Happy to share code snippets in a DM if it would be of any use to you. Not much to it, really.
Thanks Chris! I know how to code websites so no need though. Probably won't make a site for this for now, way too much going on with just my day job plus running the label on my spare time.
Blender made my life hugely easier since there's so many ways of doing stuff procedurally. Like the ocean waves and most landscapes were just a couple button presses to do. The time to get into 3D animation is now.
Blender does 2D too now!
