    Hi Simon.


    No point thanking me for my understanding when clearly I totally disagree with your approach and policy, your comment "Our goal is to provide the same level of quality and usability in all our supported products" is clearly not true, if so why are you working on additional "new" featured before ensuring that all supported products have the same level of quality and usability!!!


    Any way it looks like my comments are going no where here as you fundamentally don't understand my argument. So i will leave it there and look forward to a fully featured Archicad plug in the not to distant future.


    Still annoyed Nuge

    Simon,


    Fantastic thanks for replying, I certainly don't want to hold you back from the development so perhaps someone from enscape management should be engaged with customer communication


    While i understand where your coming from i cannot agree. don't forget that i am a paying customer of your product (and i expect a fully functioning product for the price i am paying - are sketchup user paying an extra fee for the enhanced functionally they have?), all of the discussions leading up to the release of the archicad plugin its been clear (to me and other users) that we could expect the additional channels (bump / normal etc) to follow quickly after the initial release (you your self indicated that very clearly on the forum). It now appears that we "might" get those features sometime in 2019. very disappointing.


    Enscape needs to change its approach develop an idea/feature (ie water control) and them implement it throughout all of the plugins, not we can get this done for sketchup or revit and maybe we might do it for the other plugins some time in the future (maybe)


    So from a paying customers point of view this is how i see things have evolved


    Enscape want to attract new customer base

    Provide archicad plugin

    promise that it will be fully featured

    provide incomplete plugin

    release promo video stating (just after introducing archicad as a new plugin) "and make use of all known functions"

    tell customers they now have to wait an unspecified amount of time to get the same features that other plugins have (for the same money)



    I was truly excited about you bringing enscape to archicad, you have a fantastic product and it works well within the archicad workflow but your development policy leaves a lot to be desired.


    Most annoyed

    Enscape


    No response, that's disappointing.


    Can you please give archicad users some hope that they will have a fully functioning plug in some time soon.


    Simon as you know i was one of the few that provided feed back during the beta testing and i love that we have enscape for Archicad, but i really thought that the development that you have been putting into sketchup would be transferred thru to the other plugins.


    I have been following the Trello enscape development board with interest but it appears to have been abandoned by enscape as none of you staff seem to be commenting anymore. is it still a true reflection of what you are working on?. If it is that those items will be nice to have additions to the software but not at the cost of basic functionally


    Please,please put some work into the archicad plugin so that it at least compares to whats on offer in sketchup and keep all of the plugins on a similar development cycle.

    Simon,


    thanks for your reply but that's a really disappointing response to a rather basic function that the other applications currently have and to say that you have higher priority's is a bit of a slap in the face for archicad users that just want what is being advertised ie to be able to use a bump channel. not something to difficult i would have thought.


    Enscapes future direction regarding material editor really needs to be debated with your client base as i see a general trend on this forum of discontentment with your current approach

    further to this you posted in 2nd July 2018


    "Multi GPU support is on our agenda and received a further upvote through your message. Thanks for your feedback!


    ArchiCAD lights should work without issues, but be aware that we currently don't support the following: parallel lights, sun lights, window lights, cube area lights and hemisphere area lights. Maybe some of these lights were used?


    Regarding bump, we'll support the cinerender-materials soon, but we'll also have to look into what is possible to render. There might be a material editor in the future, but for now it's not something which is planned."


    has something changed that your not now going to support this?

    Yes i have to agree with Marten,


    We have been promised the cinerender integration from the very beginning and its one hell of a surprise to see your response. your current policy of having different features for the different applications is ridiculous and something that you need to address quickly. having a basic bump or normal option in archicad is an absolute must.


    quote from Simon Weinberger in the Archicad early access forum May 29th 2018


    "We are planning to support (part of) the cinerender parameters. Perhaps we will use the keyword for things like grass and water. But right now this is not implemented yet. "

    Can you please give us an idea when we could expect to see bump/normal features within thew Archicad add on? ( i.e pulling the information from the cine render settings for a material)

    I think a better option would be to make Enscape use multiple GPUs. I render on octane with 7 GTX 1080s and i wish i could use all that horsepower in enscape!
