EnVision Visual Performance Design

Write drill and see it come to life on your computer screen, with Box5 Software’s EnVision Visual Performance Design program. This new product creates 3D renderings of your show, with instruments and even customized uniforms.

“You can really capture your ideas in this program, translate your vision and show it to your students and staff members,” says Emile Mclean, director of marketing and business development. “You can use interactive camera movements; the uniforms and flag equipment are very powerful.”

Mclean and his partners, William Lee and Nick Klawitter, all have many years of experience marching and teaching with Dutch Boy Drum and Bugle Corps and other groups. Klawitter went on to work in the video game industry and Lee as a drill designer and artist.

“One of our features is that we really wanted to make the experience very easy to use,” Lee says. “The other programs have very small buttons and need a lot of clicks. We tried to streamline the whole process. We have an extensive undo system, which is pretty standard in most computer programs but not implemented in most drill writing programs.”

Box5 worked with various drill writers and show designers and attended a Boston Crusaders camp to get input from students and instructors.

“The software innovations from EnVision put their product head and shoulders above the competitors,” said Brian Murphy, drill writer/designer for the Boston Crusaders, in a press release. “Their 3D modeling gives me immediate real-world perspective and feedback that until now has been impossible to replicate outside of the actual performance. This is a game changer.”

Instructors can also send out the show for students to view on their own computers.
