Enscape™ 3.0 Fixed [Annual] Real-Time Rendering plugin for SketchUp

Enscape 3.0 is a Virtual Reality (VR) and Real-Time Rendering plugin for SketchUp, Revit, Rhino (now compatible with Rhino 7)  & ArchiCAD.  With Enscape’s real-time rendering technology your project will impress from every angle, even at different daytimes. Create instant visualisations and immersive experiences straight from your modelling tool.

There is no need to carefully adjust your perspective before rendering, just start Enscape and fly to the spots you like. It’s fully dynamic and: A lot of fun! Enscape will make your life easier and delight your clients after seeing their project! Create stunning renderings in seconds. If you can dream it, Enscape can render it. Whether interiors, exteriors, landscapes, airports, hotels or country houses, Enscape quickly and reliably produces the best renderings from any environment.

Enscape 3.0 UI overhaul brings a number of changes and improvements to the way you will use and experience Enscape, including:

  • Improved visual setting workflow management
  • Relocation of functions from the plugin toolbar to the renderer toolbar
  • A new structure for displaying information in the renderer
  • A new video timeline view and a change to video keyframes: V = video editor and K = keyframe

Introducing the new Enscape user interface

With previous versions of Enscape, certain features were accessible directly from the design software itself. To help improve your rendering workflow, we’ve moved a few commonly-used features to the Enscape rendering window for quicker access – exports, video editor, VR, and visual settings. Additionally, you can now create a view directly from the rendering window with 3.0.

Renowned for being a visualisation tool that can be used without prior specialised knowledge, this UI overhaul makes Enscape even simpler to use. Now you can spend more time experimenting, designing, and creating those WOW moments for your clients.

What else is new with Enscape 3.0?

Local assets

Our 3D visual artists have scoured the globe (well, the internet, since travel isn’t really happening right now) for inspiration and have created 333 new assets which focus on iconic or specific assets to local regions. These include vehicles, objects, and species of trees and shrubs to help you produce more authentic, regional experiences within your designs.

With Enscape 3.0, we improved the Asset Library yet again, from both a visual and a performance perspective. Some of the assets are performing 40x better than those from other providers, highlighting the quality of the ready-to-use assets you can find in Enscape.

Adrian Renner, Visuals Team Lead, Enscape

There are now a total of 2,470 assets for you to drop straight into your projects – choose from a wide variety of vegetation, people, furniture, vehicles, lighting, and even street props to enhance the level of realism within your project. And don’t forget that you can already import your own assets thanks to the Custom Asset Library that was introduced with Enscape 2.9.

Video editor improvements

The video editor has a new streamlined workflow. Now, all aspects of the video creation process is clearly visible to users, without the need for diving into sub menus. There is also a new timeline view for faster and easier video creation and editing.

The editor is accessible via the hotkey ‘V’, and keyframes can be added by pressing ‘K’ or via the new ‘+’ buttons on the timeline. Users have better visibility and control over the time of day, the camera’s focal point, and field of view, all of which are still indicated on the camera path but can also now be viewed on the timeline itself for increased usability.

Batch rendering for Vectorworks

Vectorworks users can now batch render a set of images, allowing them to render multiple images at once, significantly speeding up their rendering time.

Faster loading for textures

Enscape now supports simultaneous loading of texture images (used in materials), which results in significantly faster loading times.

Setting presets connected to 3D views

Previously, visual presets, including fog, cloud, or lighting settings, were only applied when doing batch renderings. Now, the visual settings are applied in real time when switching between views.

Enscape Features

Real-time Walk-through

With Enscape’s real-time technology, your project is visualised as a fully-rendered 3D walk-through, which can be navigated and explored from every angle, in any time of day. With the live link between Enscape and your CAD program, you can follow every update to your plan instantly. Add Enscape to your workflow to give yourself more time to create and innovate.

Virtual Reality

Explore your design in the compelling realism of virtual reality. Connect a VR headset like the Oculus Rift S or HTC Vive in a snap and get ready to walk or fly through your project. You won’t believe the extraordinary experience it will evoke.

Export Functions

Enscape offers a variety of options to share or collaborate with anyone; design teams, clients and other stakeholders can easily explore your 3D rendered design. And guess what: they won’t need any special software or super-powered computers.

Atmosphere Settings

Clouds

Get wind of Enscape’s cloud settings: adjust the cloud density and variety to perfect the ambiance and feel of your scene. Depending on your defined parameters, the rendering will appear brighter or darker, the clouds thicker or thinner. Adjust the time of day to see the clouds travel across the dynamic Enscape sky.

Workflow Tools

Collaborative Annotation

Whether it’s a change request, material suggestion, or problem, highlight issues directly within the project with the new collaborative annotation feature. Share progress, maintain context, and benefit from continuous communication with your team and external members.

Custom Asset Library

The new Custom Asset Library ensures you can add any and every asset your project requires. Whether it’s meeting individual needs or fulfilling corporate branding standards, you can include bespoke assets into your designs. This expert feature allows you to add special touches and create unique design experiences.

Orthographic Views

No project is complete without a floor plan or cross-section representation; in many situations it’s the clearest and simplest way to present the scope, size and intent of your design. One click is enough to create a two-dimensional view out of your three-dimensional project. Switch easily between several flat perspectives to create floor plans or side view section cuts.

System Requirements

Overview
Enscape uses ray tracing for its real-time rendering, and almost all calculations Enscape performs are being handled on the graphics card. For this reason, your computer should at least meet the minimum requirements set out below.

Required CAD Software
The Enscape plug-in is provided for the following software:

Revit* 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020
SketchUp Make & Pro 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020
Rhino 5.0 64 bit and 6.0
ArchiCAD 21, 22, and 23
Vectorworks 2020 (Service Pack 3)
*Revit LT is not supported

The Enscape installer provides the plugin for all of the above CAD’s, you do not need a dedicated installer specific to your CAD, and you can specify which CAD’s you want to install Enscape for during the installation procedure.

Note: There are conflicts with two other Revit plugins: Colouriser and Techviz. To avoid incompatibilities, please uninstall them before using Enscape

System Requirements:
Enscape performs its renders using your graphics card (GPU), but the graphics card has to have dedicated VRAM, and not shared VRAM as found with Intel Integrated Graphics chips. If your CPU and RAM are capable of handling Revit, for instance, and you have a capable GPU, Enscape should work. A good CPU can speed up Enscape’s loading times. The system requirements to run Enscape, as well as the Standalone Executable files that can be exported from Enscape, are identical.

It is also recommended that your internet connection is fast and stable, and that you should use a direct cable connection and avoid using a Wi-fi connection where possible, as this can slow down the Asset Library loading times.
