Whether interiors, exteriors, landscapes, airports, hotels or country houses, Enscape quickly and reliably produces the best renderings from any environment.

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 3.1.

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.

Enscape 3.1 makes it even simpler to design and create beautiful renderings and visualisation experiences.

With the newest version of Enscape, users of all abilities can bring their designs closer to reality thanks to a new Material Library, an improved Material Editor, support for NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) Support, a Panorama Gallery, simplified assets, ray-traced sun shadows, and other great new features and enhancements.

Materialise Your Ideas With Enscape 3.1

NEW: Material Library

A simple way to improve the realism of your projects is to use the right materials. With Enscape’s new Material Library, you can choose from predefined high-quality materials that are ready to use within your projects. Over 200 materials have been created to get you started and additional materials will be added to the library with future releases.

Materials such as wood, fabric, brick, and tile can be found in the new Material Library. These materials can also be imported into the Material Editor, where you can edit various elements to get the look and feel you need.

This new feature will save you time searching for and creating high-end rendering materials and makes it easy to improve the quality of your renders with very little effort.

NEW: Material Editor Overhaul

The Enscape 3.1 Material Editor comes with not only a new interface but also new features and improved functionality.

Now it’s quicker and easier to identify materials with a colour and material type indicator in the material list. There is also a new self-illuminated material type, new icons, controls, and map tabs for improved usability.

Additionally, you can import and export material packages from within the Material Editor. This is particularly useful for individuals and teams who want to access certain pre-prepared materials from other projects.

NEW: Support for NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling)

Enscape 3.1 comes with NVIDIA DLSS technology, which automatically improves performance. The deep learning-based upscaling technique renders internally at a lower resolution but outputs a clean and sharp high-resolution image for both high-quality videos and high-performance virtual reality walkthroughs.

With NVIDIA DLSS enabled, video rendering time decreases, and quality increases. You can enjoy improved real-time performance of walkthroughs and higher frame rates with much lower GPU requirements. This latest technology is available to users with an NVIDIA RTX graphics card.

With Enscape and NVIDIA DLSS, take advantage of the latest generation of high-res VR headsets and enjoy higher quality virtual reality experiences.

NEW: Panorama Gallery

360-degree panoramas created from within Enscape are a popular way to showcase a design. They allow clients to independently navigate their way around a project from a web link or even a QR code.

To take this functionality one step further, we have introduced a Panorama Gallery – which is one of the most requested features from Enscape users.

With the new Panorama Gallery, you can group and share multiple panoramas at the same time – perfect for showcasing multiple rooms or to compare different variants of a design. This can be managed via the Uploads section of the Enscape License Center and allows consumers to access more than one panorama at a time via the web browser.

NEW: Material Editor for Revit

To help improve the Revit and Enscape material workflow, we have introduced a basic Material Editor for Revit.

This editor will support the ‘General’ material type, allowing you to apply video textures, self-illuminating materials, and displacement maps within Enscape itself. No more workarounds required!

This is just the first phase of the Revit Material Editor project. We are now working on providing better accessibility for future Material Editor features in Revit – so watch this space.

NEW: Simplified Assets

We have an exciting Enscape Asset Library update for you – we have launched a range of simplified assets that are low poly and come with a simple, white appearance.

These assets are ideal for use in early design phases to give clients and colleagues an idea of your vision without distracting them from the core elements of your design. They provide the perfect placeholders to give context, but without any complexity or specificity.

Within this initial batch of simplified assets are people, buildings, vegetation, furniture, and vehicles.

NEW: Ray-Traced Sun Shadows

NVIDIA RTX ray-tracing technology has been part of Enscape since 2019 version 2.6.1. It provides users with fast and accurate lighting and reflection calculations.

And now, with Enscape 3.1, you can enjoy even higher-quality renderings and realism with new ray-traced sun shadows.

Sharper and more accurate shadows will enhance the quality of your renders and can be enjoyed in any exported image, panorama exports, and rest mode in walkthrough.

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.

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 currently provided for the following software:

Revit (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022)*
SketchUp (2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021)
Rhino (6.0 and 7.0)
Archicad (21, 22, 23, 24, and 25)
Vectorworks (2020 (Service Pack 3), 2021, 2022)
*Revit 2018 does not support the Enscape Material Library or Enscape Material Editor. Additionally, Revit LT is not supported at all by Enscape.

The Enscape plugin will be installed for all of the above CAD’s unless otherwise specified during the installation process. This means you do not require a dedicated installer specific to each individual CAD, and you can specify which CAD or CAD’s you want to install Enscape for during the installation procedure.

Note: There are conflicts with two other Revit plugins: Colorizer 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.
