This test compiles the animation and puddle effects we received this week from our animator (Aidan Merryman) and effects artist (Will von Jess). Additionally, I have created a lighting transition using a blend between two different lighting scenarios, night and morning, as well as a dynamic key light to suggest the passage of time. All of the lights are render on separate per-light AOVs, so I have full control of their intensity in composite and can key frame when the come on and off in post as Jessica and I see fit. This was a very exciting discovery and has certainly helped us more carefully direct the tempo of the piece. My most recent test can be seen below!
