Merry Chistmas Everyone,

I had a bad case of Procrastination with this show. I wanted to do more...

The video was made with three slightly differrent loops:
1. 101_Basic
2. 101_Basic-Animated-Snowpath
3. 101_With Music

The got it all just turned off or not animated, except the PhotoShow.

The Photoshow is a BT show but is also avaible as standalone to be merged (CTRL+M) into any 101 show it is called
The snow level on the brickroad can be animated with the FX clip position in Layer 11 Landscape-Snow-Lights best between 0.35 and 0.2 where 0.25 is a great in between setting.
The Mirror effect (Layer 18) can be made Visible in any 101 show, to speed things up while editing.
The Santa Reindeer Sleigh (Layer 355) can also be made visible in any 101 show.
The Music (Audio Layer 19) makes all layers jump that are set to "Stand in Landscape", all trees (Layers 7,8 and 10) and two Snowman (Container Layer 146 and 174) are in all 101 shows set to this. When you add a layer to the show from for instance Bixpack 18 or 21 make sure you set Stand in Layer before positioning because it will change.
You can turn this music effect on in all 101 shows by adding a audiolayer into show and change in Landscape-Music-Displacement (Layer 12) press F9 and select colourmap layer under Displacement Map Texture 2.
That leaves one snowman unaccounted for, this Snowman (Layer 160) is not jumping to the music but is mellow bobbing without an audio layer because it is set to "Float in Water", when you deselect this then look up because there is the snowman now high in the sky.
All Layers set to Float on Water will be bobbing.

Oh, the Landscape Displacement texture was made in Photoshop with clouds filter and not in a complex 3d terrain builder app.

Have fun, and have a good and nice Christmas Time.

Great present komies, i like the ambience, all BT is in these shows, very clever and i saw you favored EPS rather than models even if that multiplies layers, smart!
Merry Christmas and Happy 2017 to all.

Virtuoso! If the average show is a pop song, yours are symphonies!!!

Thank you for this Christmas present. I'm super happy it runs at a good framerate on my machine. So many tricks to learn!

Merry Christmas and a happy 2017!

@Vincent, EPS is for me easier to make in less time and see the result instantly in Blufftitler.

This show was made to use as 3d living background for other smaller shows, I just didn't get around to that. You can use it as a screensaver :) just find a place in time you like rotate the camera towards it CREATE KEY and delete all other keys in the camera layer or set duration to 5 second and remove from and beginning now PLAY FULLSCREEN.

When you stop playing the show at any given moment all movement will continue.

Like the snow keeps falling, the trees wave in the wind, the moon clouds anims, the fire keeps burning, the smoke will rise, the bobbing snowman will keeps moving. Even the snowmen keeps jumping if you add audio even with a like 10 second show played in loop then the music will continue playing still the end of the song and then start all over again.

The landscape was made in Photoshop with layers 1. the cloud filter layer, 2 the path layer with holes for the braziers, 3 the lights on snow reflection colourmap, and 4 the tree location map to attach particle layer trees by launch colour.
