    Dear Forum Community,


    We've just released our latest Enscape 4.1 Preview 1!


    NEW:

    • New EULA Acceptance Window
      EULA must be reviewed and accepted by each end user. Therefore, a new EULA window is shown on start per system account after silent installation or per machine installation executed by a different account.
    • New Glass Material Type
      This new material type provides a streamlined version of a glass material and supports textures for colored shadows.
    • Colored Shadows: Textures and Ray-Traced Artificial Lights
      Colored Shadows have been updated and now support textures for spatially varying tint. These can be set when using the new glass material type. Additionally to being enabled when ray-traced sun shadows are used, colored shadows are now also available for artificial lights when the Ray-Traced Artificial Lights (Beta) option is enabled.
      Known Limitation: Colored shadows with ray-traced artificial lights in reflections are not yet supported. This will be supported at a later date.


    UPDATE:

    • Removed -acceptEULA Command Line Argument From the Installer
      This parameter is redundant after the introduction of the new EULA window.
    • Removed "NVIDIA Global Illumination Denoiser" Rendering Option
      The Enscape Renderer will always use NVIDIA Global Illumination Denoiser.
    • Added Confirmation Prompt Whether to Continue Site Context Import When Elevation Data Is Currently Not Accessible

    BUGFIXES:

    • Custom Overlays No Longer Show up in Reflections When Exporting a Video
    • Error When Changing Projection Mode After Closing CAD Document
    • Material Editor - The Transparency Type Was Grayed Out When Switching Between
      Foliage/Self-Illuminated and Generic Material Types
    • Renderer Asset Library - Delete Button Was Always Disabled
    • Video Editor - Selected Keyframe Was Not Highlighted
    • Archicad -Changes to Adjustable Assets Require Full Export
    • Revit - Error in Material Change Save Is Blocking UI
    • Revit - Undoing Hiding of Element Breaks Camera Sync
    • Revit - Log Spam When Using Autodesk Doc Texture Paths
    • Revit - Log Spam When Placing Assets
    • Rhino - Resizing Rhino When Camera Sync Is Enabled Switches to Orthographic Rendering
    • Rhino - Always Synchronizing Views Regardless of Synchronize View State
    • Rhino - Roughness Values Are Not Transferred Correctly When Switching Types PBR to Enscape


    KNOWN ISSUES:

    • Rhino – Enscape Material Created Through Rhino Layers Menu Not Showing In Material Editor
    • Vectorworks – Material Resets After Modification In Enscape Material Editor For Face Override Materials

    Tim , we have found a possible workaround, at least in SU 2024, that you can try if you like. We noticed that turning off the setting "automatically fix problems" in SketchUp seems to prevent this from happening.


    Please use at your own risk, since as of now we've just learned this. But if you decide to try, please let us know if this helps.

  • Love the new glass material, applied the Difuse to the bump and gave me a nice uneven refraction. Completed a church a few weeks back I wish this was available then. Also the ray traced artifitial lights is a game changer for me. As a lighting designer acurate rendition of ies files is of the highest importance.

    I still randomly crashed on SKP 2024 and 2023; I have an entire team of interior designers working on the interior concept of the college building, and we need the light issue to be resolved ASAP. ANY ETA ON THE SOLUTION?. THANK YOU :sketchup:

    Unfortunately it doesn't work either.
