Object movement in animation?

  • Definitely adding my upvote too for animated objects. While the quality of Enscape animation is outstanding in my opinion and with creativity you can do without moving humans, things like moving trees and video materials (for TV scenes) will definitely add to the value of the software.

  • Looking forward to see this happen in a 2.X Version

    My idea would be to have create animation by using native parameter, for example Door with Door-Opening-Parameter. then we can set on Frame 0:30 <0°> and on Frame 0:40 <110°> so that the door will open in the Video and we can create more realistic videos.

    this will also work with all Families, we need something like a Storyboard, where we can add Families and Parameter should be changed during the Renderingprocess


    dreeming about this possibilities in my homeoffice :)

  • heinrich.boldt Good idea, but consider that it should be applicable to all host applications. If Enscape does allow animation, I hope it is more generic in nature. That way, the same steps that we use to rotate a door on its z axis x degrees starting at frame 10 to y degrees at frame 40 could be applied to any object. This would a) make it more universal for host packages, and b) make it flexible to be capable of rotating any object in the scene.


    While I hope Enscape will eventually allow for this type of animation I won't hold my breath. It will take significant effort, and this type of functionality exists nowhere else which indicates it may not be feasible.


    As a workable, interim approach I suggest the following.....


    .... there are already free animation packages out there (ie blender) and export formats that allow animation to be included (ie. fbx). Why not simply allow us to import that animation data? This same process could also be used for animated cameras.


    If we wanted to make it easy to access for less experienced users an imported animated asset could be controlled within Enscape to start its "animation" at frame X. This would make it possible for either Enscape, or others, to offer "animated" library items, such as doors, which could be "controlled" inside of Enscape with minimal UI requirements.

  • +1 from me as well.


    I work with conveyor systems, and while the Enscape renderings, panoramas, and walk-thrus have been a HUGE hit, there has been such a big demand to see boxes moving on the the conveyor. For so long I've looked for a real-time renderer like Enscape and I'm so excited to finally have something like it. Being able to move boxes or totes on a system would make it a complete dream-come-true software for me.


    In the interim, my company is using Demo3D for this visualization. Demo3D is a wonderful software, but visually, it does not hold a candle to Enscape.

    Lumion has a (relatively) robust animation system built into the engine. It allows for translation/rotation/scaling of objects over time based on their internal origin/axis. It can be a bit of a pain to use sometimes but it definitely works.
