I’m workin on a render of a guitarist on stage overlooking a crowd at a concert. As this will take months for me to do, I’m looking for shortcuts. Does anyone know how to simulate a realistic crowd without having to duplicate the same 5 people over and over? right now, I’m working on the guitarist himself and this will take a while.

dupliverts maybe.

yeah, um i tried that and it seemed a bit too random. any help?
