I've used Enscape for a few years now and I have also introduced other businesses to it as I found it to have a nice work flow, but on my last renewal I was 50/50 between remaining with Enscape and going elsewhere, and I remained due to my familiarity. However, I am regretting it now as my business competitors are all using superior rendering software that costs similar or less. I have suggested on every opportunity that there will be others like me who will be leaving, so they should be enticing us to stay with the news of what the Chaos Group have planned, but the recent updates are underwhelming and I can't afford to be left behind when I am a one man business enduring a recession.
Last chance Enscape, I'd love to stay rather than spend weeks learning something new, but unless there is a major overhaul v4.0 coming VERY soon then I am afraid I will be leaving and it is unlikely I will be back.
Enscape fixed seat license = £406.80
Main competitor 1 = £490.80 (with full Raytracing option and vastly superior asset/material library)
Main competitor 2 = £305.59 (with full Raytracing option, vastly superior asset/material library and built in post processing)
I was really hoping Enscape and V-ray would have merged into one software offering by now to remain competitive with others, but I've not heard any news since the corporate merger and this makes me think they will stay separate which is of course very disappointing.
Is anyone else feeling the same way? I wonder how many have already left.
Enscape, how much does one customer mean to you? Probably not a lot I suppose, but I'm voicing my opinion here because I'm certain from other forums I frequent that I'm not alone.
