Hi - maybe due to my lack of English I don't really grasp exactly what you recommend here especially:
#4 - "change all your complex textures in Photoshop ... you do not step out of the line with the gradations"
#6 "...forget my tips"
English is not my mother tongue either. I will try to explain a bit
4. Some of the textures I used were not the default ones from Archicad. Take the facade tiles for example. I added the texture in Archicad, but Enscape made the texture look to dark. So I had to adjust the levels of the texture in Photoshop. I basically brightened it. Most of the textures have to be adjusted (brightened from what I've seen) in Photoshop.
6. I tried to suggest you forget all my tips as soon as Enscape comes up with a material editor for Archicad.
It would also be nice to have a bit of diversity when placing the same type of plant.
I attempted to make a somewhat more detailed exterior rendering in Enscape. I have the following suggestions:
1. Use HDRs. They work great with Enscape.
2. Tweak the HDRs until the lighting of the sky looks credible.
3. Change all the plaster materials to about 15-30% grey. This is the white we see everyday.
4. Change all your complex textures in Photoshop (concrete, stone, etc) and make sure you do not step out of the line with the gradations.
5. Create an Archicad template with all your tweaked materials basic materials.
6. Wait patiently for the Enscape's material editor and then forget my tips.
7. Use complex profiles, articulations and small seams/gaps between materials. Enscape's lighting works really good with them.
I have never achieved to change the texture mapping orientation in Enscape (in order to show as in does in Archicad).
Feel free to C&C.
The reflection of the light sphere object seems to be rectangular somehow and I do not understand why.
Did anybody else experience this?
In the General tab you have a slider called field of view. Just move the slider at about 50mm and distance your camera from the model.
Yes, I can, @Simon_Weinberger.
1. In Archicad the lamps have an intensity slider and also you can select the shape of the light. The slider settings are not that sensitive in Enscape.
2. In Archicad I have the IES Light option. The shape of the light does not change in Enscape.
3. In Archicad The lamps can be 360° or less. Enscape does not recognize these settings.
4. The light coming from the sky (skydome, heliodon, etc), cannot be tweaked in Enscape.
5. If the sun is covered by clouds, the light would look softer in Enscape. Maybe it would be nice if we had some slider in Enscape in the Sky Orb Brightness that controls the heliodon intensity.
It would be great if Enscape could regard the Archicad light settings. Now the lighting control is very poor and do not reflect the settings in Archicad.
Hi, In Archicad 21 enscape, there is no Create View button, how to save the view, please help me
You can save all your views in Archicad as cameras or as view maps. You will always have the saved angles and layer combinations doing so. Than just sync with Enscape. It works great.
The bump mapping in Enscape+Archicad would be a great feature. I would definitely switch to Enscape for all my project types.
Enscape is just awesome! It would be great if we had realistic materials from Archicad! Cheers, development team!
