Drag-and-Drop Editing and Authoring

Customizable Training

The V-Author® programs (Standard and Pro) revolutionize training by placing training in the hands of the instructors who know their specific needs and locations. These programs allow instructors to create and edit scenarios customized to their agency’s training objectives, thus providing more freedom and less limitation in training.

 

V-Author® Standard

Create Your Own Scenarios and Drills

Instructors begin by uploading a panoramic image of a local high-risk location or by selecting a pre-loaded environment. After choosing the scene, instructors can drag-and-drop characters, visual effects and animated targets onto the environment.

Each V-Author character is programmed with multiple actions and can perform certain sequences when triggered by trainees, certain events or the instructor. To maximize training time, instructors also can edit VirTra’s pre-assembled, pre-loaded scenarios.

This easy-to-use application is capable of hundreds of thousands custom scenarios, targeting exercises and firearms courseware.
