Animated leaves

  • Could you implement animated vertex leaf shader?

    I don't know what you use for materials but in Unity its a very simple shader:


  • I'd prefer animated vertex maps too - for leaves rather than dedicted libraries. Although animated proxies would be cool, but not sure how that happens out of sketchup.


    I would prefer not be reliant on a libraries from enscape, it will end up looking like lumion :o(

  • I think the strength of Enscape (over Lumion) is that it allows us to use our own content, and make it as we please :-) Shipped content is therefore not a big deal for me, but i would love to be able to use proxies from different file formats, and with different features! Being able to drop FBX and OBJ files directly as proxies would be awesome, and support for stuff like Speedtree with animations would be a dream :-)

  • It is on our agenda for our next release, first for Revit as it has currently the worst solution.

    We want to release it around October.

    What about Sketchup? Next next release?

  • I just want to bump this request since I believe animated leaves is essential to more realistic animations.
    It just doesn't feel alive when every plant is totally still.

    Having the option to animate the vertices on our own plants would be a great addition.

    Please, please, pleeeease!

    We wanna start with animated vegetation, move to animated people and then also provide the ability to make cars/people for example travel along a pre-defined path, which is kind of the "ultimate" goal in the end. This is all something which will be implemented in future releases of Enscape and we also want to make all of this as perfect as possible, so thank you for your patience in that regard too.

  • Thats all good, but you havent confirmed you will make it possible for custom models to have animation.
    Both Import of animated FBX and some animated vegetation shader so users easily can apply some minor movement to their own plants.

    It's not planed, for now. But I'll still forward your feedback accordingly, and I can tell you that the ability to import/create your own animations has been requested before too, so there is a feature request filed for this subject already.

  • Did this ever happen? You were mentioning October of last year for being able to use our own proxies out of Revit. Which as far as I'm aware is still a no go.

    We're sorry about that... in this case we spoke too soon - as of yet this has not been implemented, but it's not a forgotten topic at all.
