Now in Fashion Alley -

A new product by Apparition/Alley called Casting "Extras".  Never since "Citizen Extra" by Reallusion have we seen low poly characters that can help to fill up your scene that can use all the standard iClone animations.  However, with Casting "Extras",these avatars not only utilize all iClone motions, but they can be facial animated as well!  Best of all, the poly count is around 9,000 per character.

Our first grouping is the "Military" Theme, and is the first of many to be released.

The Casting "Extra" Military is being released as three packages - please see below.  For a limited time, you can purchase all three packs for the price of two. 

Green Camo - Available HERE.

Brown Camo - Available HERE

Grey Camo - Available HERE

And the 3-pack Combo - Available HERE

I must acknowledge this idea came about by Alley's intuition and marketing understanding. Her experience about the iClone user needs is invaluable, not to say her ability to create very realistic and artistically conceived textures.

I have worked dedicated to achieve the best possible LOW POLYGON COUNT mesh, which would still perform correctly.

Characters are truly 2 layer, and some others ready to be presented are 3 layer as well! We decided to use the earlier head design from G3 characters, because those heads use a substantially lower polygon count, still being able to perform all the Puppeteer motions, LipSync to audio, Morphing and Facial alteration.

This of course means if users want to create custom faces for their Casting EXTRAS, they will do better using iClone 4. Surely iClone 5 can be used to characterize the heads but it will increase the polygon amount by more than 3000 extra polygons. There is no need to do that!

Iclone 4 faces are good, mainly when Extras are supposed to work in the background or doing very short appearances in a scene.

Another important fact is EACH Casting Extra has his VERY OWN CLOTH MATERIALS! This really means they can be characterized independently, providing total differentiation between extras. By simply changing the material characteristics of each avatar, like Hue, Saturation, Brightness, etc. each avatar can be made to be an original in itself!
Users able to work with Photoshop can also alter each individual to his particular interest by adding texture overlays or doing painting changes! And these changes will not propagate to other members of the crowd! Of course Alley will also release more textures for each pack, expanding the Cast versatility!

No more empty scenes with few actors! Apparition-Alley Casting Extras are full fledged actors and actresses capable of doing all things normal resolution avatars do!

Enjoy and don't miss this new addition to your Casting Resources!

Next in the series of Lo-Poly characters of "Casting Extras" is Medieval.  These characters are around 10,000 for male and 9,000 for female.  The hair poly has been reduced, as have the hat accessories to make these characters as efficient as possible.  And, there are 11 assorted female and 11 assorted male characters (children, teen, older).

Remember that all can be fully facial animated and use all standard iClone motions.

Casting Extra "Medieval" by Apparition & Alley - Available HERE

I commented in another thread yesterday about working on a medieval project and Voila!

RL released a special price on the 100 years war content pack awhile back and I didn't buy it. It didn't make sense trying to produce battles scenes with regular poly characters, horses, props and stuff.  The iclone 64bit may change that, but it hasn't yet.

Your low poly characters open up a whole new area for producing casts of thousands.. LOL

22 medieval avatars and the look very good, good enough for not-so-close camera shots even if they are low poly.  I'm not talking about close ups of course, yet they may be better than I realize. 

I like the fact you included some kids and old people too.

I like these avatars...and I likey de pricey.  BigGrin (smiling chinaman) 91 cents apiece.
