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.

  • Note that shadows are a weakness for billboards from high up angles (where you can see the shadows clearly). With careful attention to lighting and positioning, you can minimize the issue.
  • Sitting Billboards require particular attention to use as the billboard must be placed to interact with a chair. For example, imagine the sitting woman billboard facing away on a chair. Her legs need to be behind the chair but her derriere needs to be on top of the seat and behind the seatback. By being creative you can make it work but not all angles will work in this case. Also, it is helpful to change the scale of sitting billboards to make the feet and derriere align with the chair.
  • Since this product uses encrypted scripts, it cannot be used in versions of Daz Studio below 4.9.3.166.
  • Compatible with the https://www.daz3d.com/billboard-nodes-plugin though it is not needed for the Now-Crowd Billboards product.
