REMINDER! If you encounter any issues with Enscape (e.g. crashes, installation problems) or your subscription please reach out to our dedicated support team directly through the Help Center or by using the Support button as detailed HERE! Thank you for your understanding.

    Also the option to change color of the tree leaves in the material editor would be great, since usually the original color is way too saturated and needs to be dealt in the post prod.

    Hello,


    I'm trying to render dichroic glass surface with Enscape and I'm not sure what would be the best way to do it. If you have any good ideas about the workflow and the texturing, mapping or the material settings, please share your thoughts! Thanks in advance! :)


    My first thoughts were to create multiple stacked opaque surfaces with different color tints and the play with transparency settings and maybe add a some kind of albedo texture, but well see how it works.. I will start doing this by trial and error, so If I find a good way, I will share it with you!


    Here is more information and pictures about the dichroic finish: https://www.goldrayglass.com/products/dichroic/

    Hey thank you for super-fast reply, impressive Damian !


    I was thinking the same about the gpu and the fact about RTX being the best choice of the above.


    But is there any information about how Enscape would run with Nvidia Quadro P2000 or NVIDIA Quadro P3200 / Intel UHD Graphics 630?

    I tried to get some information from the forums and around the web about a good laptop for rendering and designing, but I need a bit of advice. I work with various sized projects (parks, roads, city squares, vegetation) as a landscape designer. The programs that i use the most are Civil 3D, Sketchup, Enscape (ofc:), Infraworks and Photoshop. With Enscape I mostly render images, but from time to time videos aswell. VR is still bit of mystery, but I see a slight need for that in the future.. Because of my company policy, I'm not free to choose any model that would be the ideal choice. So here I have some alternatives:


    Choice 1. (IT-departments recommendation)

    - HP ZBook Studio G5 Mobile Workstation - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i7 (9th gen). 9750H / 2.6 GHz (4.5 GHz) / 12 MB

    - 32 GB DDR4 (2 x 16 GB)

    - Nvidia Quadro P2000 / Intel UHD Graphics 630

    - 4 GB GDDR5 SDRAM

    - 1 Tt SSD NVMe


    Choice 2. (Little bit better than first one, is it yet enough?)

    - HP ZBook 15 G6 Mobile Workstation - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i7 (9th gen). 9850H / 2.6 GHz (4.6 GHz) / 12 MB

    - 32 GB DDR4 (2 x 16 GB)

    - NVIDIA Quadro P3200 / Intel UHD Graphics 630

    - 6 GB GDDR5 SDRAM

    - 512 GB SSD NVMe, TLC


    Choice 3. (Could get if I can justify the need..)

    - HP ZBook 15 G6 Mobile Workstation - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i7 (9th gen). 9850H / 2.6 GHz (4.6 GHz) / 12 MB

    - 32 GB DDR4 (2 x 16 GB)

    - NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000

    - 6 GB GDDR5 SDRAM

    - 1 Tt SSD NVMe + 16 GB SSD cache (PCIe (NVMe)) (3D Xpoint (Optane))


    Choice 4. (Might be too expensive... but could get if I can justify the need)

    - HP ZBook 15 G6 Mobile Workstation - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i9 9. sukup. 9880H / 2.3 GHz (4.8 GHz) / 16 MB

    - 32 GB DDR4 (2 x 16 GB)

    - NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 / Intel UHD Graphics 630

    - 6 GB GDDR6 SDRAM

    - 1 Tt SSD NVMe


    Choice 5. (Not sure if it's possible to get a Dell's laptop, but RTX would be great?)

    - Dell Precision Mobile Workstation 7540 - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i7 (9th gen). 9750H / 2.6 GHz (4.5 GHz) / 12 MB

    - 16 GB DDR4 (2 x 8 Gt)

    - NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000

    - 6 GB GDDR6 SDRAM

    - 256 GB SSD


    Choice 6. (BONUS! Not sure if it's possible to get a Dell's laptop...)

    - Dell Precision Mobile Workstation 5540 - 15.6"

    - Intel Core i9 (9th gen). 9880H / 2.3 GHz (4.8 GHz) / 16 MB

    - 16 GB DDR4 (1 x 16 Gt)

    - NVIDIA Quadro T2000

    - 4 GB GDDR5 SDRAM

    - 512 GB SSD


    Thank you in advance! It turned out to be quite long list!


    Edit: This turned to be in the Revit-forum, so this might not be the right place for this post.
