1. This is an re-render of the same Director project used to make the video at vimeo.com/191269471.

    However, this was made in Director v0.0.17, which has more features. In this version, the features that primarily enhance the images are shadows and depth of field, and an increase in the sampling quality in PRMan.

    The only change in the data was to correct the focal distance of the camera towards the end of the animation, so that the majority of the snowman's face is still in focus.

    Still rendered in PRMan 19.

    Focal length is set larger than usual, to create a shorter DoF.
    Focal distance on the animated camera is animated to switch focus on the different characters.

  5. Animated in Director v0.0.8 (more keyframes needed to smooth out the bounce).
    Rendered on a MacBookAir with PRMan 19, with a single directional light and raytraced shadows (enabling shadows is not a feature exposed in Director v0.0.8, but will be in a future version).
