Project Geppetto is our early-stage research project that explores making it easy, fast, and fun to add crowds to 3ds Max scenes. Project Geppetto, a data-driven animation system, offers high level control of plausible human motion using simple geometric shapes and paths. The technology preview comes with a set of animations for use in common settings like sidewalks, hallways, lobbies, and plazas.

It's nice to see it in action and described with such ease.
People watching is alive in the lab.
