Since Alan told me about rim-lighting, I thought it might be a good idea to include some of them in my renders since then and, to tell you the truth, they've turned out much better than I anticipated!
These images appear brighter than they really are, however. I'm not exactly sure why.

Alan enlightened me yesterday on how I can use referencing to 'import' large numbers of character rigs without, in a way, actually importing them. I used that technique for the large numbers of civilians after animating 5 separate rigs. I then imported those five different animated civilians into one scene, moved them about into a small group, saved it, then referenced multiple copies of that small group into the scene. Because of the large number of rigs in this scene alone which all ready makes the whole scene's FPS drop like a comet, this playblast won't include playblast lighting or textures.

I cannot thank Alan enough for showing me how to clean up my files to lower their size. There was so much stuff cluttering my scenes--no wonder they took so long to save and load up. "Optimize Scene Size" does wonders... and so does saving them in Binary instead of ACSII! Looks like I was pretty much doing everything wrong. Anyway, here's my first playblast since optimization.
