    it should be possible to copa paste "attributes" from one view to another, like camera, sun, or the linked style


    also, it makes no sense at all to have view management which includes sun, time of day etc, but not the actual camera properties like fov and dof?!


    its cumbersome to navigate the settings in enscape

    Thanks for your feedback!

    The previous mirror in mirrors rendering worked only if they both were in screen space (and thus they were also not entirely correct). We removed that to have more consistent lighting results in mirror reflections, but we'll evaluate adding additional mirror bounces before the release. ;)

    uff :) .. well, i must say this should not be subject of evaluation but instead is more of a must have!

    what if we have large scale glass facades mirroring other glass facades? then we have clay rendering inside the "mirror" ?! come on guys :) no no no crank it up

    hi there,


    i absolutely love the fix of indirect lightning in mirrors! super! finally


    now if you could bring back some additional bounces for mirrors in mirrors we are there :)

    i think that in older versions there where more bounces for mirrors in mirrors, or?


    edit: just noted then when switching quality modes, while updating/refreshing the mirrors inside mirrors show correctly, its only when its "done" final image that the correct reflections vanish !?


    i hope you can this soon :)

    hi there,


    question, i have moved all my models, textures etc onto a NAS and i have mapped the nas drive as a network drive to "z"

    now i also have put the "offline" models on this drive - does this make sense or would it be better to have the assets offline one each pc OR will the speed of the online asset library be increased so far that it makes no difference using the offline library?


    and when downloaded, can i force enscape on the others pcs to use this allready downloaded library`? or would i have to download it on each machinen and overwrite the stuff on the network drive?

    ... just as info -

    the black shadows are a project related problem...


    with new files/projects the shadows are not black :/ dont know what caused this but anyway... can be closed

    hi there,


    when there is an map "exchanged" inside the enscape material editor the uvw mapping is lost inside sketchup :/ this is bad

    hi there,


    sorry to bring this up again, but what is the status on relative file paths?

    it would be super if it would be supportet and if enscape offers some "help" when maps went missing... maybe it could iterate down the file tree of the current component/proxy location looking for the files?!


    anyway - i hope to get some good news on this one since we operate on different machines and networks and it makes no sense to have duped and tripled...



    >> if anyone has a good workflow or file management for custom models proxies and mateiral - lat me know :)

    hi there,


    currently the sun shadow in the web standalone is pitch black...

    this makes no sense at all and looks very strange...



    best would be an optional slider so we can adjust sund shadow opacity...


    and by the way - when will there be gpu powered high end rendering in the web as a streaming service?!

    most if not all of our clients have zero competence when it comes to hardware and often only have laptops and tablets or very underpowered and old desktops... for these people

    it makes so much sense to provide the web thing as a streaming service from a high end machine - im sure there are many users willing to pay for this!


    thx

    hi there,


    i think its about time to ask for a special enscape light lister that gives quick access to all lights and emissive materials and their settings so we can easily switch and alter groups of lights on and off...


    this would be a great help and reduce the cumbersome workarounds needed at the moment to the "right" light scenario for each shot


    merci

    hi there,


    now that there is made a start with the asset placement, please consider to add a random scaling for the vegetation objects and also please add an option that allows "overlapping" or not


    thx

    best, franz

    hi there,


    in the realtime and in the web application it would be super if we could also change the date, not only the time of day.....

    for sun studys and evaluating the light over the cause of a year this would be a huge plus if we could directly alter it in enscape rather then switching back to the host apps..


    thx
