I used states in ICE with geometry instances to do this. The scene contains about 50K rigged characters containing 550 triangles each with many shadow lights. I could have doubled that easily but that's all I needed :) Special thanks to my colleague Stephen here at Softimage support for the ICE advice.
I am now very happy, very, very to the point where I can not be described, and I want to offer my highest consideration and respect for the creative artist's

thanks , is nice to see there are some new tutorials , i always thought softimage laked in learning material and production quality examples.
At work we already have been asked to do stadium crowds several times; i'm sure this tutorial is going to be very handy at the right time.
