The effects in this video, while not unusually difficult, were very time consuming to do as it involved a lot of rotoskoping, which is tedious work. But it was worth it, as I believe the effect it yielded was pretty good.
Despite being the fifth Age of Empires 2 video we've made, this one actually takes place first chronologically. I decided early on that we wouldn't necessarily be making the videos in the order they take place, instead laying down some foundational elements and then filling in around them. I think this method, while not suitable for everything, is interesting to try and works well here.
