What's the best way of showing a crowd? - I have tried creating lots of characters and then duplicating them as a "group" but I got a fatal error....so how would anyone else give the illusion of a large crowd?

How many characters in your group ?

you can shoot a "group" with a green screen, export a movie and import in a backdrops (with transparency background).
Do the same with a second group...........maybe ?

Yes that would work if imported as a still png image with transparency. You can't import video with transparency... Unless you use crazydaves new method

Hi Quoling,

Could you tell us a little more about the fatal error that you got? How many characters had you created when it happened? Were the characters actually in a Group or had you just selected a lot of them at the time? Thanks.

I couldn't actually select characters and add them to a group - so I created two, duplicated them, selected the four, duplicated them etc - when I had about 10 characters I just got a long dialog box with "fatal error" - didn't take much notice of the description as I closed that and then Muvizu stopped working.

I am currently creating a Queen "live" movie (just for Emily) - part of the set - looks over the ground and therefore I thought it would be good to have a "crowd" instead of just empty spaces - I may look for images to see if I can give the impression of crowds...that could work really well actually....
