ActionVFX Launches New Crowd VFX Footage

Use ActionVFX Crowds to fill out composites with people quickly.

ActionVFX launches a new product category in Crowd Stock VFX Footage. If you’ve never needed to fill out a composite with crowds of people, the crowd collections will make that whole process of sourcing assets much more accessible.

The first two collections offer sports and concert crowds with more collections to follow. Both Crowd products have 330 clips and offer multiple angles, clothes, and multiple actions per clip.

ActionVFX Launches Revolutionary Crowd Stock Footage

Johnson City, TN: The VFX and filmmaking industry has taken many hits as the world adjusts to the impacts of COVID-19. Many productions were canceled, from feature films to TV shows, due to social distancing and following quarantine guidelines that have become our new norm. While these productions of all sizes were unable to meet, ActionVFX got to work.

Following the social distancing rules set out by our governing authorities, we safely began bringing in real actors and actresses to film for our Crowd Stock Footage. This new VFX category will revolutionize the way people create virtual crowds. This not only allows creatives a chance to do crowd work more quickly, but it will be a much cheaper, affordable alternative.

Both Crowd products will have 330 clips, our most extensive 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.

“We like to say ‘real is always better’, so the idea of capturing real actors performing real actions in a way that allows VFX artists to convincingly comp them was intriguing to us. We met with many studios to find out exactly what their needs were when it came to crowds and used that feedback to make these collections production-ready on Day 1. We definitely were not expecting to have 330 clips per collection when this project first started, but seeing the flexibility that

having 15 angles of each actor brings, it was completely worth it,” said Rodolphe Pierre-Louis, CEO of ActionVFX.
