Astana enhanced, part 15 - site G + deer process

(Astana was a hurried video project where a camera flies through 1300 acres of property. Now, to answer my question, "what if we'd been given more time," I'm enhancing the entire neighborhood.)

As usual, dynamics and animation were devised by studying videos. In the 1940's, Disney Studios brought in live animals for the animators to study. Today, we have YouTube, where thousands of animal videos are available.

This is the last site (G) for the Astana project, but I still have a few more weeks of clean-up, animation tests, render processing and audio editing before it's finished.
