Thank you for your message! We plan to deliver Enscape for Mac for all supported (Mac compatible) host software packages eventually, but there is currently no timeline we could provide. A little patience
Thank you Kaj.
I'm a Mac user and VW since it's called Minicad 3.4 and Stratavision (for Mac).
In time, I switch to C4D as render engine and, lastly, c4d+Octane. Until, may 2021 when Enscape become available for VW.
At the moment, I work on a Dell ws using a RTX Quadro5000 mobile, but in my mind, I cannot wait to return back on a Mac.
I'll wait, Kaj, I'll wait...
Please, let we know about it.
Thank you again
I wonder if there will be the VW version...
It is very, very important to me...
Ok Julian, but it looks like a spot... If I were you, I'll try to review it.
But, of course, it's my opinion...
Anyway, thank you again for your 'support': I do appreciate so much. It makes me feel not alone...
Hi Julian !
Thank you for your reply.
Ok for circular and generic shapes... doesn't matter, but rect area should behave like a rect area light... As you can see, it seems generated from a circle.
Thank you again
Grazie Phil !
Thank you so much...
You gave me the answer I'm waiting for: so I can't get under consideration any M1 pro...
ciao e grazie
I seems, we (VW users) are... Children of a lesser God!
I know that sketchup is the preferred sw, but I'd like silently remember that I bought Enscape because of Vectorworks platform should be available...
Hi to everyone Mac users!
I'm too, since 1984. So, you could imagine how happy to come back to my Mac using Enscape.
But there is a little problem: my machine is too old to run the newest OS. In fact I can't go over High Sierra.
Now, what I ask you is: please, could you tell me about your machine? Processor and RAM, OS and model.
In that way, I could buy the right Mac.
I'm looking for a 14'' macbook because when I'm at studio, I could use my 28'' Samsung, but when I'm on the road, I do prefer a small computer; I think you could do agree. But I'm in trouble with the CPU/GPU: M1 pro? max? 16 GB? 32GB?
I know: the more is better, but not for my wallet!
I'll appreciate so much every sharing experience and configuration of your first bite to Enscape MAC.
I have the same problem using Vectorworks. Try to put some area light to the windows that fit exactly the window hole.
So, please, take a look to here:
I tried to fix putting some area light to the windows and it seems to works well. Maybe it's a GI issue...
Thank you Demian!
I'd like if you were add an Eyedropper to pick a specified material into the scene...
I think it could be very useful. Isn't it?
I do suppose you debug it on a Mac. Can I ask you which processor do you use? M1?, M1 pro? M1 max?
SandyCohen desktop standalone (exe on Windows, something similar will be on Mac) runs the same Enscape engine as CAD plugins do, so the quality will be the same as you see while using Enscape with Sketchup.
Ram? 32? 64? Of course the more RAM, the more performance... Isn't it?
Well, after several days waiting for some helps from the forum and the DEVELOPERS, I, finally, reached a good result, that I WANT to share to the community.
I've tried to render the models that were giving me problems and this trick seems to works fine.
Have good renders!
P.S. Are there some Vectorworks users? It seems not.
This forum has a very low cooperation spirit!
Ok. Nobody answer... Is that a good company?
Anyway, go head!
It seems that Enscape has problems in low-light situations...
Here's some pictures. A very simple scene with a slim window so as to reproduce the problem.
The internal box is shining, but if I enlarge the window, that effect is less noticeable.
If I put an area light near the ceiling, of course, it works fine. Not the same if I put the area light outside the window: what I get is unacceptable as you can see.
I've also tried the same scene using Sketchup and the result was the same.
Now, what can we do? It seems that fix this bug, will take a long time... so, I need your help (to the forum) to put a 'patch'... some tips or tricks or advice to overcome this impasse.
From left to right:
enlarge the window
area light near the ceiling
I can't believe that!
My patience is almost ending.
I'm an engineer and know how difficult is MAKE. Make anythings.
People only knows how to criticize everything, because they know everything!
They can't imagine how difficult is...
So, I don't want criticize nothing and nobody, but it's time to spend some words about that issue.
I ditched my VW and c4d (octane) workflow to switch to Enscape, but I think Enscape isn't mature yet. And this I am very sorry!
My first post is 21st January, 5 month ago!
I'm told that it was a GI problem and that it would fixed in the version 3.3.
Anyway, just because I'm an engineer (civil), I've tried to UNDERSTAND the problem.
So, after this issue, I put an area light to the ceiling and it seems to works. I've no more that issue.
The problem is that I can't put the area light without artifact in the scene. I've also try to put sole arealigth out the windows, but the result is the same.
Now the question is: could you manage this issue or I have to switch back?
Please, tell me something even that I'm stupid. This silence does you no onor.
I still believe in you...
I've had to switch to the last 3.2 release.
