I took a break from my lip syncing practice and experimented with some scenery/background composition. Remember my old animation? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTyjbc1n6Lg&t=34s
So I decided to make something similar but more complex with the following limitation: no raster textures but make it look like it was a raster animation (e.g. warm colors, blurs). So I did a quick test you can check out here: https://youtu.be/ErsRC63CZj0
It was pretty easy to make but VERY hard to render. Rendering process took the whole week. I threw in this so many blurs, distortions and noise gradients that Synfig can barely handle this at 640x480. Not sure if I completely satisfied with the result, but seems to look OK.
