New Sports & Concert Crowd VFX | Make Crowd Replication Easier & Cheaper

New Sports & Concert Crowd VFX | Make Crowd Replication Easier & Cheaper

You can implement digital crowds with over 650 clips of real actors filmed at 15 different angles.

As productions all around the world were canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw the landscape of what we considered "normal" completely shift. Now, we have to be more careful than ever when being in large groups, which can hinder industry productions.

When attempting to place large crowds in the backgrounds of shots like concerts, sports games, and other large venues, we knew productions would be hesitant to bring in hundreds of people and film them on a green screen.

During the pandemic, we saw a chance to propel the industry forward in unprecedented times. Following our governing authorities' guidelines, we got to work. We hired real actors and actresses to safely visit our studio to film crowd plates that can be easily replicated in post, so you don't have to!
Introducing Sports Crowds and Concert Crowds VFX Stock Footage, two new VFX collections ready to change the game.

Sports Crowd VFX Stock Footage

Sports Crowd Specs:
  • 330 clips
  • 15 Angles: Straight on, high, and low
  • Delivered in 2K and 4K
  • Formats: 12-Bit ProRes 4444 with Alpha
  • Color Space: Rec.709

The Sports Crowd collections will allow you to replicate sports venues like arenas, stadiums, and more with ease. With 330 clips and 15 variations, you can multiply our clips to fill out even the largest of sporting events.

There are multiple skin tones, ages, heights, and body types. They wear different apparel for easy duplication without people standing out with the same clothing. There is also a team color of blue that can easily be changed in post.
Each clip has multiple actions that a sports fan would do. Everyone performs the same actions in the same order and for the same amount of time.

This will let artists to easily place multiple people into their shot and adjust the timing of the clips all at once to choose the appropriate action. This also allows for studios to build out a database for an easy population of large crowds.

Actions performed:
Sports Game Sitting
  • Sitting and light cheering  
  • Sitting idle (watching the game, looking around at others)
  • Sitting to jumping and intense cheering
  • Sit back down
  • Missed Goal Opportunity (some people stay seated, some stand up)
Sports Game Standing
  • Standing idle (can be looking around)
  • Standing while light cheering
  • Intense cheering and celebrating
  • Booing and giving thumbs down
You also get the transitions between those actions so that you can create shots such as a crowd jumping up out of their seats for a winning goal.
