    Everybody knows as wonderful Enscape is. Of course!

    But its animation module is simply 'nothing'; it is not worthy of Enscape. And it is a shame.

    I worked around 'archimovie' since 1986-87... I've tried to make something good by camera tracking sw. But the render engine was so slowly...

    Some time ago, I tried (and bought) CamTrackAR for my iPhone. Now wo can get a fully camera tracking in REALTIME.


    Change speech.

    What is the most important rule to achieve a photo quality animation?


    1) modeling

    2) texuring

    3) lighting

    4) ?

    what's the fourth?

    Let's go don't be shy...

    Ok, I'll tell you.

    The 4) point is camera movement

    The whole animation production is so booooring... same pan: left to right, Down to Up... same movement in or out...

    No, that's enough !

    So, we have one of the most beautiful render engine and we cannot produce a photo quality animation.

    It's sound very sad!

    Here's the answer .

    As you can see, I record a few of second using CamTrackAR then I did import the fbx file into Blender, run the script generated by CamTrackAR and that's all.

    Then, saved the file (just the camera track) as .abc (Alembic) and import it into C4D, and here's the result.

    The whole model is a joke, of course, the render is very rough but the result seems to be quite acceptable, just because the camera movement.

    Now, I might think about writing some lines of code to import the path file... but the roll axe is locked,

    Ok, my friend, it time to revamp the EAS: Enscape Animation System

    Thank you




    In your homepage, there is this picture. What does it mean? I could an exe with several solution?

    If yes, please, let me know how...

    Thank you



    Thank you for you help!

    My question was about the case of I've forgot to remove the license key; so I have just only machine (Mac or PC)...

    Vectorworks, when you run it on a machine, check if there is another another machine with the same license number.

    So we can run freely w/o any worries about the license.


    I strongly hope In the future it will be more easier.

    Thank you again.



    As usually, I work on a WS Dell RTX quadro 5000 mobile.

    But, when I'm abroad, I work on my MacBook M1 Pro 16/16 + Vectorworks 2023 (Sketchup 2022)

    Now the question:

    how to run Enscape on my Mac without having access on my Dell.

    Can I switch my SEAT license on Mac and return back ob Dell automatically?

    Thank you for your help!


    Hey Toscano

    The only way to do that is by naming the views you select for the batch render process accordingly. If you have further ideas for a more detailed naming system, please feel free to share them directly with our product management team here:…bs/17-under-consideration

    Thank you!

    Hi Kaj !

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'm sorry, but it doesn't works. The way you wrote, works with the picture not with panos.

    I've already check for that.

    Anyway, thank you again. Hope to hear from you very soon.


    Hi guys!

    I've a win license. On my NEW Macbook M1 pro (16/16), I can work only in demo mode.

    Could I use the same license of window machine? and where I could download the workable app? Or it's the same and I've just to add a license number?

    Thank you.


    PS Under M1 pro 16GB 16 GPU, works fine, although it isn't a speed daemon, of course, but it does works.

    Maybe you don't know an iPhone app, called CamTrackAR. Well, it allow you to track in realtime your rec and export tracked data in several format, csv included.

    I've tried to import camera coordinates from c4d via Python code and works quite well.

    I say 'quite', because of Enscape camera roll is locked.

    Now, is there a way to unlock the roll camera axis and save the animation?

    In fact, I'm can save a 'rolled' picture render, but not any animation...

    Thank you


    P.S. I'm writing some code to import .csv data from CamTrackAR, but it doesn't make sense if I'm unable to use roll axes

    Some realistic animations

    depends from camera motion
