For the World Cup we improved our crowd tools. Restrictions in camera movements are no longer an issue with this full 3D method. Less extras are needed on set, so the shoot takes less time.
During the post-production the crowd can be directed in detail with our Maya plugin, the possibilities include supporters who do the wave or jump enthusiastically at a goal. New actions can be added, if the script requests this. The demo uses people filmed for a greenscreen, but it is also possible to use animated 3d models.
