This one took a little longer to prepare for uploading, because I edited some parts more heavily relative to my other work.
I think it has improved the quality of the video, but if you are annoyed by something do tell so I can improve!
– If you are unreasonably annoyed by it, here’s a link to the (unlisted) version of the video with no editing
It also had an additional 24hrs of delay due to Youtube Content ID having an aneurysm.
It blocked the upload worldwide for audio from an artist I’ve used many times beefore.
When I uploaded just this same audio on a still image, nothing got blocked.
Content ID still recognized I used this audio, but this time no blockage.
I reuploaded this multiple times (@1hr each) to isolate the cause of the block. Seems to be if I credit it in the description?
Note that it couldn’t bee a manual claim, as it’s been “unlisted” with 0 views every time.
I contacted the original artist of the music to ask if he had a different content policy than I thought he had (can use, cannot monetize),
and if YouTube had somehow failed to detect me every time besides for this video.
He’s currently looking into this with his licensing company (Creative Music Group).
Long story short, if it says the video is unavailable to you, let me know. Youtube is being inconsistent & wonky.
I’m rendering a version that replaces this audio currently, intended for uploading if I get blocked again.
After that i’ll probably find a nice bridge to jump off. This has been a very confusing experience.
Due to my rambling on YT content ID in this post i’ll keep this short.
Check the video description for a longer edition.
All in all the run went great.
Getting to solo the encounter was a major pain and due to requiring multiple attempts this run took 6+ hours to arrange.
The Crystal Worm Mother went better than expected, and allowed me to have more of a buffer for failure further down the line.
The final phase of the Crystal Entity went godawful, and the extra bit of heals remaining saved the run.
Being the final part of the run, I was experiencing some pressure to finish it off.
This shows by way of a few minor mistakes in this phase until about the halfway point.
at that moment, I rapidly took stacked shots I didn’t anticipate at all. This sudden rapid health loss threw me off balance a lot.
As a result of this I walked into the “fractal” attack, further testing my resolve.
In the end I nearly choked but pulled through at the cost of elegance and all my HP pots.
You’ll see what part I’m talking about once you get there. I’ve tried to convey my experience of this final minute through the editing.
All in all, I really hope you enjoy this! It was one of the more challenging runs to complete.
EDIT: forgot to include the link. big brain.
