Avast ye mateys! Sail the Seven Seas in search of gold and glory with the new Now-Crowd Billboards - Sailing the Seven Seas . All we need now is a fast ship and a good crew. I canna help ye with the ship but I've found the best crew to ever sail the Spanish Main with these 'ere billboards. Fill your cargo hold with treasure and your sailing ship scenes with a large crowd of scum, sailors, villains, and buccaneers, the perfect backdrop for the main action that you add!

Now-Crowd Billboards, Sailing the Seven Seas is the LARGEST billboard product ever released by RiverSoft Art, with 40 Billboards!

Billboards are a fantastically quick and resource easy way to add background crowds to your scenes. These pre-rendered elements are great to play the background characters in your scene. The Now-Crowd Billboards improves on standard billboards by providing 72 or more different views for every billboard figure. Change a billboard figure to 12 different horizontal angles and 6 different vertical angles. When your camera moves, the Now-Crowd Billboards can be changed to match!

There are also great scripts to make these billboards easy to use! There is one script to turn the billboards to face the camera and another script to change the billboard figure angle based on a horizontal and vertical orientation. Finally, there is a script that pushes your billboard directly away from your camera view or pulls it towards you.

For Iray and 3Delight

No figures are included with this product.

No other products are needed to use the Now-Crowd Billboards - Sailing the Seven Seas.

Note: Now-Crowd Billboard products are large (greater than 10GB) because of the many textures (at least 72 images per figure x number of figures) and so can take a while to download.

Sitting billboards can also be difficult, requiring creativity with their positioning, angle, and even scaling to get looking right.
