  • Hey guys. I've just joined the community and have been trying the software since a couple of days.

    I am mighty impressed with the quick results and I would like to subscribe to Enscape.

    Just a quick question.....

    .................is there any difference between the trial version and the actual final version that I might subscribe to?

    ...........any at all ???

    Welcome to our forum. :)


    The standalone feature is the only feature disabled during trial mode - the reason is simply that too many architects would download the trial, export every single one of their projects as a standalone, put them on their website and not contact us afterwards.


    However, you can always have a look at our example standalone files on the bottom of our gallery, you can watch the export process in this tutorial on Youtube - or, if you'd like to try it yourself, you can always purchase a monthly subscription for only $47. In case you don't like it, you can always cancel it after that one month.


    Let me know if you have any more questions, or if there's anything else I can help you with!

  • Thanks for the quick response Demian.

    I was noticing that i could not get really nice light and material settings as shown in sample images. I guess I need more practice.

    Also i noticed there is not render image button in the tool bar. Every time I need to open the extensions menu in skp, go to enscape and then click render image.

    Is that how it is at the moment?

    It really boils down to a mix of more practice and inspiring yourself by the showcase renderings from other users, plus you can always schedule a dedicated screen sharing session with us here (click on the "Free Personal Demo" popup below on our homepage), and additionally you may also want to check out our knowledgebase articles here.


    Furthermore, to have the Enscape toolbars activated, simply rightclick anywhere where you have space in the SketchUp toolbar area, and then simply activate "Enscape" and "Enscape Capturing" - but in this case, have you perchance already done that and it's really one the "Render Image" button which is missing? If so, can you please provide me with a screenshot of that?

  • I found the Enscape Capturing toolbar and all buttons are there.

    Thanks. Also at the moment I am using a GTX 1080 ti.....I was wondering what difference would it make if I were to change the graphic card from this one to 2080 RTX ti? ......would it make a difference in the quality of reflections, shadows, occlusion, transparency etc.?

    Bhaskar Narula , the RTX 2070 will offer improved reflections and lighting most of all, you'll also be a tad more future proof, plus when you plan to acquire a VR headset to use it with Enscape you won't run into any performance problems.


    Also, you can acquire a subscription via our store. Afterward, a dedicated account will be created for you to manage your payment method, the license and such. The forum account is not connected to this license center account.

    I figured......and have subscribed. Thanks Demian.....looking forward.

    Also i tried uploading my first video in m4v format and it said the format is not recognised.

    Which format should I upload in if I want to?

    Thanks a lot for your question. In this case we generally recommend making use of YouTube and then simply pasting the link - this will allow you to upload videos no matter how large they are, and YouTube will also support most video formats.
