Dear Enscape team,
I would like to reiterate the concern for the Face-me component self shadowing problem. In April of 2019 one of your software engineers reported "self-illumination faceme/billboards are not supported, as there was basically zero demand for it, so it was not worth the added complexity.".
I think that maybe the solution for face-me self shadowing might not be self illumination, and that making this request might be too specific. But, I do want to suggest that there are many people who are in essence asking for the same thing regardless of the actual solution.
The following are requests/threads for essentially the same fix;
Enscape for Sketchup-"Face-me" Components Mar. 29 2017
Sketchup Material Updates June 7 2017
2D Billboards improper color/shading Oct. 5 2018
Face me Exposure Components Problem Feb. 6th 2019
Face me Components do not work April 8 2019 (in which I contributed to Solo's inquiry as well)
Sketchup-Faceme Components-Self Illumination Oct. 4 2019
Emmisive material doesn't work on a Face Camera Component Jan.17 2020
Enable Disable Shadow/Casting/Receiving, Compositing tag Feb. 10 2020
Enscape for sketchup "Faceme" components Feb. 26 2020
I imagine that there are others that I did not catch. But my main point is that I don't think I am alone in saying that this is a very pressing problem. I can say that in our workflow we now dedicate several people, countless man hours, to replacing all of the forground trees in our Enscape renders with very tedious Photoshop work.
At the very least I think there is more than 0 demand for the self shadowing fix.
We love your product, it is truly a godsend, I would like to love it even more!
