Enscape is currently what many architects use to create "final" renderings, but it would be great if there were visual settings that are better suited for preliminary rendering in the early stages of a project. Anything from sketchy styles to water color visualization would be great. Think along the lines of renderings from the early 20th century or hand colored landscape architects plans.
The visual settings would consist of a variety of options such as:
- Control the color and thickness of surface edges.
- Control the jitter or extension of lines for sketchy styles.
- Control background color.
- 2D silhouette people with a transparency adjustment.
The goal is to make preliminary design visualization quicker and with a result that doesn't look so polished. Clients prefer less polished renderings because they feel there is still opportunity to provide input and make changes. They feel more a part of the design process as well.
