Use SketchUp Scenes in Enscape Video Paths

  • "Wouldn't it be great if..." (and I hope I'm not making a rookie error and this feature already exists!!)


    I have a couple of scenes in SketchUp; 'Scene 1' showing a door open, and 'Scene 2' showing it closed.


    These scenes work fine in Enscape in View Management, and show the door open 'Scene 1', or closed 'Scene 2' respectively.


    What I'd like to do is have those 2 Views on my video path, so as the camera pans down the room you see the door transition from open (view 1) to closed (view 2).


    Is it possible? It would be so cool to be able to 'switch' geometry elements in this way. I've tried quite a few methods, but the video path seems to favour one scene setup or the other, and can't find a way to switch between both scenes.

    Thought I'd ask the question before posting a new feature request. :)

  • Hi,

    Yes that's right - all in one video!

    Guess I was hoping to be able to use a View as a keyframe, then I could set 1 keyframe as a view with door open, and the next keyframe as the view with the door closed.


    I realise it wouldn't be a smooth animation, but it would let us show two geometry positions in 1 video.

    Hope that makes sense?

  • It's a shame, because switching between the 2 Enscape Views in View Management kinda does what I want.

    There's just no way to use an Enscape View as a keyframe in a video path.

    Maybe I'll post a new feature request.

    Please indeed forward it to product management through our portal. It only takes a few seconds basically. :)
