    We are already having a look at this. But it is quite tricky on our side. As we are trying to render an image with ray tracing, it needs to be very close to physical reality. For light beams that would mean that we either create thousands and thousands particles in space where the light would be reflected and spreaded (which would be veeeeery performance heavy) or we make an exception from our usual approach and create a special object that is treated differently (which could cause followup problems).

    No decision so far which way we will head but we would definitely like to find a solution that suits your purpose but does not affect our performance too much.

    We had a chat about this topic with the Vectorworks developers a few days ago. This behavior will not be implemented on our side as it would be too CAD specific. But there is a way to implement it on the Vectorworks side and they are willing to tackle it. But I am not sure about the timeline.


    Thank you two for the feedback. We will have a look at the other points and come back to you if we need clearification.

    J0 - what about support of image props - this is. the first request and then we can see whether Vectorworks will solve the problem of embedded image props...

    I use Vectorworks Landmark and Spotlight and have been teaching others to use it for the past 25 years!


    Main features that I would like to see integrated with Vectorworks and Enscape are as follows:


    • Image props are objects that always face the camera. They are often used as plants and trees in Landmark. Can we have them supported such that they face the camera in Enscape too
    • Clip cubes and sectioned models are not supported at the moment - it would be brilliant to have them supported to show cutaways and true internal sectional elevations
    • Visible light beams would be really useful for Spotlight users and those doing exhibition design or show lighting.
    • We use Renderworks backgrounds in Vectorworks which equate to Skyboxes in Enscape - can we have an automatic transfer to Enscape?
    • Your assets don't work when embedded in Vectorworks objects like groups and symbols. If an asset like a tree could be embedded in a plant object or symbol then it would integrate well with normal Vectorworks workflow
    • Can we have 360 videos like Twinmotion and Vectorworks itself can render
    • A quick way of integrating the enscape rendering to a viewport on a Vectorworks sheet that updates when the model is changed.

    I think that is it for the moment!


    You have created a great product which gives almost the same quality as Renderworks but in real-time!

    More integration Vectorworks current workflow is what we are after!


    I did a webinar last Thursday which was well received - here are a couple of images from it:






    (apologies - I put this post originally in the wrong place!)
