Good idea Antonio.

At the moment I have no audio in my computer, but I just recorded a
video showing the basic of the layer/collection interface:


I had to use the Python API to create this file as it is (the nesting,
...). More videos once we have the UI fully operational and once we
get clay to use per-collection settings.

> As all developers don’t know the details of each change in UI for 2.8, maybe would be good idea that each developer adds a small video with the basic usage of the changes implemented (new layer system, clay render, etc). You could update video if something change “a lot” during development.
> A video or animated gif of few seconds would be enough and will help a lot to others developers to test new features. ( You could do a wiki page, but sometimes is faster a video as fast how-to use)
