> Basically it's very simple. Add a new transparent layer to your image.
Fill it with RGB Noise. Invert this layer, otherwise the snow is black.
Then, several times, duplicate this layer and offset it down by a few
pixels. For a smooth animation, have 30 layers, and change a little the
amount of offset down, adding even a small horizontal offset.
Finally, duplicate the background layer as many times as you have snow
layers, and merge the duplicate backgrounds each with a snow layer.
Your animation is finished!
