Marching and grid outside sideline

Post by hifivisual » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:01 pm

I'm interested in having a group march 8 steps in front of the sideline using the perfect HS preset, but the charts only print a grid 4 steps outside the sideline. Any ideas on how to get a grid to print so the staff knows where those kids are supposed to be?

Hi hifivisual,

Unfortunately there is no easy way to do this within EnVision. I've tried for a couple days since you posted this to see if I could come up with anything makeshift and there are some options but they aren't great.

1. Firstly, the values that you are looking for are a available on the Dot Sheet view, so you can use that as a reference if you need to.

2. You could create props that are the same width as the yard lines and lie flat to the ground (height = 0), and place them in a way that it recreates a grid at that point. This obviously takes some effort but it should work.

3. Use a custom canvas to get the desired width. This is a bad option as it changes the entire structure of the field you are working on but it would allow you to have a grid out far enough.

That's about all I could come up with. In the future we'll try to add some options to expand the grid as far as you need it.

Have a great day!
