dear Suguru, probably you wont belieme me but Im still thinking (from your first crash reports while ago) how to help you, my few ideas:
1. it might be some kind of heavy or special geometry in Sketchup (if its ok with you, not breaking some kind of NDA or rules, you can send me test file on email email@example.com|
2. it might be some kind of plugin in Sketchup (it might help to have proper clean install of Sketchup- but I expect you tried it)
3. it might be some kind of other installed software
4. some special monitor setup (I use macbook pro in clamshell mode conected via USBC/thunerbolt to one 27'4K monitor) maybe you have some 8K ultrawide or so or multiple monitor setup
5. some kind of settings in MacOS (maybe some accessibility, or security settings)
6. maybe internet connection (as far as I know Enscape keeps (pinging packets via net to check license or assets or something else)
7. or Im totaly wrong
if youre not living too far I can sent/bring my macbook and you can try it there...
hope you will find the solution soon...
dear suguru, honestly I do understand your disappointment. Im not sure if Enscape is industry leader and I dont know what future brings after merging with Chaos, now it seems like we might get different pricing system based on integration with Vray and trying to sell bigger SW packkage, but thats another story...
I bought basic Macbook air with M1 just after realease (12/2020), installed beta of Enscape for Mac when it was ready and started to use it almost everyday, but still haveing Win workstation, then 05/2022 I bought Mac studio M1 max and install Enscape for Mac (full realease) and use it everyday for all my/our rendering jobs and never used Win from that time (I sold it in late summer), after few months I decided to sell Mac Studio because it was power overkill for my needs and bought Macbook Pro 14 M1 almost basic config and Im useing it till now. I have installed just programs which I realy need (Autocad, Sketchup with very few plugins, Enscape and Affinity suite) nothing more, I always keep my MacOS uptodate. I dont want to say that Enscape didnt crash but at all, but its really not more then few times per month. I cant remember the last time. I know that Im not power user (mostly 4K stills) and my models arent heavy (obviously up to 200MB sketchup file) but I did several hours of videos during that time from pretty heavy models (almost 1GB sketchup model) and really dont remember crashes. Im thinking that it might be some kind of combination of MacOS and SW and maybe SKetchup plugins which causes your crashes...anyway I keep fingers crossed for you and hope that your problem will be solved soon.
Thanks a lot for the report - We'll look into why the "Check for new version" button may not work properly on Mac, I appreciate the input!
thanks Demian, maybe. its just my problem...seems like alot of changes were made in new Ventura...especially in terms of "security"....
thanks Phil, I know about this source, I was just surprised that there is
- Version: 1.1.19+921
and on my Mac was version 1.1.19 +1458
but seems like its the same version...
Hi guys, I have Macbook Pro 14 M1, 8core CPU, 14 core GPU, 16GB memory...MacOS Ventura 13.01...seems like verything is working fine for my size of projects...the power of the machine is enough...the only question I have is that it seems to me like the "link" Check for new version is not working...now i have version 1.1.19 +1458 is it the last one...the newest?
thanks...this workaround saved my project...
I really wish that the trial countdown is counting days till the final release...
Wait. Or buy a faster Windows machine for 1/2 the price and invest the difference in APPL stock.
thank you very much for your answer, well maybe its my personal problem, but I don't want to switch from Mac to win that often and also the win workstation is bit big, sometimes I need to carry it from office to home office and so on...I expect that Mac version will have some limitations, but I think i can forgive it to have the ecosystem....anyway thanks again and I will consider it.
Hi guys, I want to make final decision what kind of new Mac to buy.
Do you have some experience with
1. Macbook Pro M1 pro
2.Macbook Pro M1 Max
3. Mac Studio M1 max
4. Mac Studio M1 ultra
5. Or wait for M2 /pro, max, ultra/?
We are not working on large scale projects, now Im testing with base MacBook Air M1, its is workable, but significantly slower then our RTX 3070 machine...
I don't need to have portable machine...
Please let me know any kind of experience, or advice...thanks..
Hi Demian, we have the Windows version for one year /freshly renewed/ is there some kind of "crossplatform" license, or do we have to buy another license for Mac...we don't plan to use Windows license any more /after the official Mac version will be released/...
I use both laptops for business (and Enscape):
- MacBook Pro (16", Late 2021) Apple M1 Max / 64GB RAM / 2TB SSD / $4203.13
- Razer Blade (15" Advanced, Late 2021) Intel Core i9 / NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 / 32GB RAM / 1TB SSD / $3230.26
As soon as the Enscape MacOSX beta allows for batch rendering I'll post benchmarks and SketchUp source
Guys, just a simple question. What to buy? M1 studio max 32gb and 24 core gpu? Or 32 gpu? Or 64gb ram? Or should we buy Mac studio with M1 ultra? ….re are doing middle size jobs, almost no videos….thanks for advice
Hey, yesterday I've tried, with no success, to install Enscape on my MBP13 M1. I've tried it on a freshly installed Sketchup Pro 2021. The enscape toolbar doesn't show up anywhere, not even in the extensions panel. Am I doing something wrong?
I have to struggle in the night...but did it this way...install fresh Sketchup 2021 /im using 2022 on the same machine M1 air/, then clean the plugins folder, install Enscape and its running...sometimes the loading is bit slow...but this solution works for me.
Well, I don't know where was my problem. I unistalled all plugins, reinstall just the Enscape. And it WORKS....I didn't try some big projects...but I only have MacBook Air here on a trip...
ANYWAY...THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH ENSCAPE...I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER
Some points to all:
1. do you have some experience how to switch between projects? I can open more projects in Sketchup but I can have just one project opened in Enscape...my workaround is to work with just one project at the time...when switching to another project I quit Sketchup and start again... Do you have other workarounds?
TODAY its like Christmas for me...now I can order new Macs for office...
Well I have downloaded the Sketchup2021, installed the Enscape...could not to go to sleep...and then it crashes...tried everything...now Im not able to even start the sketch with plugins...Im on the road out of office...so my specs are pretty basic MacBook Air M1 8GB RAM...is there someone who has "working version" of Enscape with M1 chip?
Hi tomankubik ! Have you been able to test the beta yet? How is your machine handling it?
Now that the beta is out I hope we can get more precision soon from Enscape / Demian Gutberlet about "minimum requirement" and "recommended requirement" (what CPU/GPU/unified RAM?). That would really help find that sweet spot between capabilities and cost
Dear Fran I have no information that the beta is out….I have been applied to beta program but nobody send me info. So hopefully they will react at least at this threat….I willing to buy also Mac studio just to try Enscape…we will see what happens
Any news about launch of a beta? Planning to buy a Mac but literally waiting for the beta.
we are in the same situation stopped the order for 4macs till beta
Hi guys, do you have some experience with Playstation VR connected to PC and using Enscape? Is it worth to try?
MacOS support is not yet released - Please stay tuned for further info we'll share here and through other channels once there'll be any official announcements. You can also keep an eye on the MacOS Forum section here in general, although there isn't much we're sharing there ourselves just yet.
thanks...I thought so...it was just try from my side...hope it will be soon...Im waiting for it to upgrde whole office with Apple computers...
