Animation of a conference room audience

Good Morning All,

I’m quite new here, so first of all, I’d like to say hello :).

I’m working on a project that’s about creating a 3D room with the audience & I’m looking for some tools names within Unreal Engine 4, tutorials that might be helpful. The task: animate conference room Audience for a small room (1st scene / around 30 people) for a big room (2nd scene around 500 people).

Some standard animations to by applied like: clapping, stand up, around 10 looped animations to be applied to characters that seats on their chairs. - all the actions to be started on key press. I’m not expecting any AI, just having a control over the crowd by clicking a shortcut on a keyboard.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
