What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Plan V is still in development, and some features might need polishing. Early Access presents an opportunity for us to get additional feedback.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Plan V is expected to be in Early Access for at least 3-5 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are currently figuring out the best the way to publicly distribute those tools.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The base version of Plan V can be used as a viewing tool to block out action for pre-visualisation. Users can adjust lenses, aspect ratios, save camera positions, etc...”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“If you would like to expand your project beyond the capabilities of the stand alone app, our dedicated Plan V team is able to develop new and unpublished tools which will adapt to your needs! Just get in touch via our webiste (”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The user feedback and feature suggestions will be directly sent to our dev team for review. This will allow us to refine our goals while improving the app.”

About This Software

Part of these tools are now available as a Unreal Engine plugin, check out Plan V Tools on the marketplace (Link).

From hobbyists to production professionals, Plan V is a virtual visualisation software. Plan V gives the user a sense of scale and immersion previously unattainable with traditional pre-visualisation tools. The software has been developed for Windows desktop platforms, with a Mac application coming soon.

Plan V improves the design process between script writing and set building. It allows users to jump in, iterate and see results immediately. This in turn reduces costs whilst increasing production efficiency.

Plan V comes packed with a wide range of functions and settings, allowing users to experiment in real time with different lenses, cameras, animations, lighting and many other options without extensive knowledge of 3D modelling software.

This process was conceived on Black Mirror (Netflix) and has successfully proven itself during the production of His Dark Materials (BBC/HBO).

Powered by Unreal Engine ®.
