The process of planning and executing a marching band field show can take an incredibly long time, but since 1994, marching band directors have had Pyware to help them. Pyware is an advanced tool for constructing and visualizing both formations and movements for field shows, drum line competitions, and color guard productions.
Pyware has always been great about releasing new versions and updating their existing software to continually improve the user experience. The newest versions have a ton of great new features to help plan and visualize your field show.
Pyware has been working hard to make the visual aspect of their software more and more realistic. They have added a plethora of new realistic poses and animations for the simulated members of your color guard, including, but not in the least limited to, Bent Wall, Windmills, and Figure 8 Carves. There are also new instruments, props, and locations. You can simulate a full pit with new Gymnasiums for indoor shows and different settings for outdoor shows. Wherever your show is taking place, you can simulate it on Pyware.
The new versions also clean up the process of planning a field show and create an improved user experience. You can now make custom yard markers and delete camera movements with one button. Camera panning has also been improved to move in counts rather than in seconds, giving your simulation a more realistic look. There are also new printing options for thicker grid and yard lines to make it easier for your ensemble members to learn their sets.
