    Not sure how many here have seen this show yet as it has just been released on Amazon Prime, This is the previs animation done for the Vought headquarters, Vectorworks, Sketchup and Enscape, an early version at least 18 months ago, Enscape is way better these days.


    The animation is only to see how the set will look once built, I am working with another show at moment but could not use Enscape due to lack of video textures, too bad as it's a huge title show.


    Thank you for those fantastic palms and potted tropical plants, I was in a rush to get animation story boards for an upcoming reality show based on an island and decided to see what was in the asset folders which I never really looked at as I use my own made assets. I needed palms and anything tropical, was I happy to see what you had, made my week.


    Thanks, and once I can show you , after it airs, I will.

    I am almost certain I have seen this request on Trello, I would really like to be able to have layers work with animations (hide and unhide).

    Is this something that is possible in a future release? I ask this I I'm trying to set my expectations.

    Ah, user error, I indeed did delete it, well actually just moved it to a new HDD, Restored it to my Documents folder and it did not show up, oh dear, I may have screwed myself. A system restart fixed it, phew! Thanks.

    You're right in that regard, I apologize for that Solo , for the mis-judgement there and for in accurately pointing to past problems, i was definitely mistaken. I was also probably a bit harsh. But I stand by my initial point that I think its inappropriate to lash out at the devs who work very hard on this product because a feature has not been implemented yet.

    No problem, I understand, I have been on so many software forums for products I use or test and I do have a lot to say and problems I report that it's easy to assume by my earlier post that I am an abrasive member, my tone was out of line I must admit now that I look back and I apologize to the devs for lashing out.


    so,.... when can I expect my animated textures? :p

    So does the animated water seem like a gimmick too?

    Constructive posting? from what stand point a user or a developer? It's not like I get this program for free and just whimsically asked for a cool feature, I need this feature and would even be willing to pay someone to develop it, or pay more for it, if I get my needs so do many users, that is how development works, you should know. I am vocal as my livelihood depends on this software, it's important to my business, sorry you feel so offended, I'm not sorry for my actions and will still push for this feature.

    You used to do this in the V-Ray for SketchUp forums too. If a feature request you made or comment you posted, wasn't responded to fast enough for your liking you would get bent out of shape. You're not the only one who does this kind of stuff, but your comment caught my eye today.

    Ted, please show me where I did this, I do not even use Vray, never owned it, only tried it as a trial more than 10 years ago, I was using Podium and Vue at the time, you may have me mixed up with someone else, or remember me as a global moderator at Sketchucation where many users were frustrated at Vray at that time.

    Animated textures is not really a unique feature, pretty sure many users would like to have a TV playing in their videos, some may even need a real fire in the fireplace. I have many uses for this feature. Communication regarding this would have been a lot better than just constant acknowledgement and no action is my whole "hissy-fit" point.

    Solo you just hit the nail on the head when you said "...something my workflow desperately needs". Your workflow is not every bodies workflow and while this would be a great feature to have, its clearly not a high priority for the dev. team who is developing for a community, not you alone. I think you need to adjust your expectations for all software, not just Enscape.

    This is going to sound terrible and self serving but my "hissy-fit" as you call it is all about MY workflow, this is a feature I need, I even started this self serving thread, all I needed was some sort of indication that my request was not inline with the development plans and I'd have accepted it and figured something else out, but I have been hopeful for over a year only to hear it's not happening. "you need to adjust your expectations for all software, not just Enscape" what does that even mean?

    You're always welcome to go use another product if you don't like the direction this one is headed. Throwing a hissy-fit in the forums because your feature request hasn't been completed yet doesn't help anybody.

    I use several products daily, I'm a production artist, previz, story boards etc. you may feel i'm having a "hissy-fit" but to me this is a critical feature that is available in Lumion that I also have but then i lose my fluid workflow that Enscape clearly has an advantage over Lumion. I'm upset as I feel that we have been waiting for something my workflow desperately needs and hoping for over a year that maybe, just maybe it will be included in the next release only to find out that it's not even on the radar, which had I known I could have adjusted my expectations.

    Well then, I see no point in making requests, I have been waiting for a year, you could have said something a long time ago. pretty shitty that y'all kept lying about noting another plus one, what for? you have no intentions to add this anyway, wasting my time.

    So, it has been well over a year since this request and many users agree that this is needed. Has the Enscape team done anything beside acknowledging?

    Is this actually being implemented? to some users this will be a "nice" added feature and others it's a must have, I'm the latter and need to make decisions when renewing licences, so please can I get some sort of indication about this feature?
