ActionVFX just introduced the first two VFX collections in the new Crowd category: Sports Crowds and Concert Crowds. Industry productions will no longer need to film individuals on green screens while bringing hundreds of other extras to create a massive crowd. We’ve done the work for you. This creates a safe environment for your set and crew as we navigate an uncertain world rattled by a pandemic.

Both Crowd products will have 330 clips, our biggest collections to arrive on our website. The vast amount of clips will allow easy replication of crowds with different variations, crowd reactions, and talent. The collections also come with 15 different angles, giving artists unlimited amounts of creativity to implement digital crowds into any scene, no matter the perspective.

The variations in the clips include:

  • People with different skin tones, body types, ages, and heights.
  • Each person performs different actions that you would see at a sporting event.
  • There are sitting and standing versions of each person so they can be used in a variety of different settings.
  • The clothing being worn is different throughout the collection.
  • All clothing was chosen specifically so that the people could be duplicated without any one person standing out.

Here’s a blog post with more details.
