In Sketchup, I can take portrait screenshot by turn on synchronize views button with the aspect ratio < 1 (use thomthom camera tool). Then use create view button, your Aspect ratio setting will save when you load your project again.Sometimes, Synchronize views can't match with SketchUp viewport when I use Pan tool in two-point perspective mode
prg.tojei I'm able to reproduce the behavior. The proxy gets invisible in SketchUp Pro 2018 but is displayed in Enscape. The component box remains visible in SketchUp.
We'll have a look at it. It may be an issue of SU.
Please open Sketchup+ivy ceiling .skp file and see the issue in Enscape viewport. The leaves are not matched coordinate in this scene.
I have just tested the material editor in Sketchup with my latest project.
Here are my results. Only capture camera in Enscape, no photo editor.
I think v-ray is better for the parameter feature, GI, and lighting. But it is old, slow and supported poorly the graphics card.
And finally, workflow in V-ray and Enscape is more different, such as you compare between in a camera and your eyes. In Enscape, you can walk around your model, simulate your building; in V-ray, you like an artist hold your camera, waiting for better lighting for beautiful capture.
I think you need to focus modeling and material. Did you hear Arroway Textures?
Some model was painful and out of control when I use plugin random scale or rotate (not use scale definition) like Canvas by Renderiza , Spray by thomthom, Ivy
You can check this component. I think scale definition can fix component coordinate. But it's too lag when using for the plant like ivy because the model has too many objects.
Here are these files contain my issues.

prg.tojei Have you tried the preview version yet? It does not give you back the number input, but the rotation slider should work much faster.
I have tried Enscape-Setup-184.108.40.2064-ga01813f, the rotation slider work much faster as you said. The old version I use was lagged when I rotate the huge HDRI.
However, I like the parameter input combined with the slider is useful. Please add this to the new preview version.
If I understand you right you need a constant shown photo at the background? I would like to use this. For example a nice gradient could be set.
That's exactly what I think.
Styles option in Sketchup is interesting and powerful for ArchViz. If Enscape can sync watermark in rendering, this will be so amazing.
This is the example video:
I think slide-bar in settings so useful when we change the parameter in material for testing. But sometimes, like when loaded skybox from bigger HDR file, rotation setting has been lagging while drag mouse in slide-bar.
I think to apply input number parameter feature like older version can fix this problem.
Do you want to simulate a studio backplate? Cause you could have placed it outside your model with a bigger scale to avoid a shadow. Or if you have 360° images you can insert them via the skybox function.
Usually solid bodies/geometry cast shadows.
I will forward your request for a shadow control to our developers.
I think we need two features:
-Ability to affect cast/receive shadows per entity as we discussed.
-A back-plate like add watermark images in Styles Sketchup option. Sometimes It will be useful if we want to create shadow catcher in minor scenes or sync style in this scene. But I don't have more knowledge how to add this option to 360° images.
I want to create a backplate make my scene more realistic.
But my model was darker after the shadow casting from my backplate...
Please add an option for turn off cast shadow and receive shadows in next version. Thank you.
The video can't be see without a google acount?
You can watch my video without a google account because I share shareable address link.
Nice! Looks like a screen capture, you could also use the video function for such timelapses. Would look a bit sharper then!
Thank you for your advice. I don't know how to record full time of daylight. That's why I record my screen.
I have switched Thea Render to Enscape Render for Archviz. This plugin works faster.
My vision has changed about The Real-time Render, and now my GTX Card not only works for gaming but also for rendering.
Your standalone walkthrough exporting file is fantastic, but some customer wants my client to create a showcase video. Their pc is not supported 64 bit, that's why they can't open .exe file.
I create some scene in SketchUp for make animation. When using Enscape, I synchronize view but your plugin can only make two scenes for setting position. This video is short and can't combine multi video.
I think your client need update some features like:
- Synchronize multi scenes in Sketchup to create multi position for making video. ( can reorder position)
- Preview video feature can save multi-setting or camera path to create a batch-mode render. (I don't want to wait for processing video and set-up next video after finishing,...)
- A list-box for manage video (like panorama video feature) for combining or splitting video.
prg.tojei Thank you for your feedback.
Which file format do you want to export in and what information should be contained in it?
The import of .fbx files got your upvote.
Thank you, I have upvoted this feature.
Not only export file type, but also Enscape can import or open file like .BIP in Keyshot, or .LS in Lumion.
I want to reduce file size in my project. After create a building or house, I only need to load an exterior scene template to my project for render.
Here's my example:
Enscape supports and integrations more CAD software, and we need this render engine can save as another file type format like Lumion or Simlab to create a template. After that, we will open a file and synchronize only building, house, ... putting on our template to reduce working time.
Revit and SketchUp can't import .fbx file to create animation. That's why I think Enscape better with standalone import .fbx file from Speedtree or 3dPeople,...
Thank you for your reply. I hope they will improve this plugin in Sketchup soon.
I use Archvision and Sketchup for visual some project. But RPCs're worked only in Revit.
Here's my issue. Please fix this bug. Thank you.
