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.

    Hoping someone at Enscape can help. Our Autodesk Vendor, ImaginIT, has add-in tools, one of which is an Excel Schedule importer. With Enscape loaded on computer, when trying to run excel import it causes Revit to crash clean out, no error codes, just vanishes. It actually doesnt matter which tool of theirs i use, any of them with Enscape loaded causes the crash. With out Enscape loaded on pc, the utilities work fine. Our IT manager assures us it is not a rights issue, and ImagineIT says its Enscape....

    Can i start a ticket to investigate this issues Enscape has?



    New people assets. NOT a single person handicapped! After spending a large portion of design time making sure buildings are ADA accessible would be nice to actually show it being used by the handicapped.

    just sayin.

    Hmmmm, very interesting... i get the concept of a video placed on a surface, but in thinking about what they want, they want it to light up the area under a skywalk, and im guessing it doesnt actually cast any real light.. or does it?

    if it does, how did you get the video you wanted?

    I have a client that has asked me to create a animation with neon lights along a building that will change color as the camera moves along the building...

    Can Enscape do this? if not, is this something that you would be working on? real time light color and intensity variations would/will/is very desirable.

    Well, honestly if it says "synch view" it should match identically... and it doesnt. The use case is, I want to use the saved views via sketchup then just set that tab open enscape and grab the render. no setting and saving views in enscape... why duplicate. Honestly after hours of working on your model, looking and working at it from all angles, placing your view exactly where you want it in sketchup, save view or update view, open enscape save render and leave. THAT is your work flow.

    hope I'm not too late to add my two cents...

    Alot has been said that i agree with, usually don't know what I'm looking for other than catagory... tree, people, cars, etc.

    being able to set preview icon size would be nice, either all of them or if nothing else a selected item enlarged preview..

    one of my pet peeves is it always defaults to placing multiple items of the same item... well in general you don't want more than 1 item in a scene, (ie person, car, etc.) ...maybe having check marked a number of items for a multiple individual insert would be cool....(like a list)

    upon placing the item having it prompt for rotation would be nice (or at least the option to do this). An auto jitter/scatter would be a nice item for vegetation..

    like random size, rotate, and displacement when placing trees. Fuller (denser) trees and bushes are needed. definitely more shapes and sizes of bushes.. cant get enough.

    and as stated above, being able to change color/material for an item would be nice.. for example there is a very nice illuminated bollard, but cannot adjust light intensity, and color makes it less than useful.

    all your vehicles look the same. i bet there is at least 12 cars that if placed side by side would look rather identical. having more range in types (make,model,year) of vehicles would be nice. more trucks, suvs, etc. almost all are small round nosed cars.

    maybe even a drag and drop mode from the palette into the model would be great. that would speed up import. quickly grab, drop and move to the next.

    really need more handicapped people... half the time spent on plans is too meet ADA codes (stairs, ramps, counters, etc.).. might as well show it being used.

    LOVE they way you ask for your users input.. keep up the great work.

    paul, surely you dont render 4k with enscape... anything over HD settings and enscape crashes for me... tho in podium i could max out with no problem, just took 30 min. plus.

    as far as upscaling apps i have heard the new Adobe can also do this very well... have yet to try it.

    my home pc is in need of a vid card update and i may try a geforce rtx and do some comparisons my self... ill let you know.

    ok, so i was under the impression that a workstation graphics card would be the better way to go, i have a Quadro RTX 4000....

    is this not true? if not i WAAAY over payed for a suitable card... does it matter?

    Version 2.9 has turned out to be very buggy.... has crashed on exporting images and rendering videos at least 5 times today alone.

    Hopefully my reports are helping identify where the problems are and a 2.9.1 patch to be issued quickly.

    Also i think you may have buried the lead, with the implementation of displacement maps... something many have been waiting for!

    Oh and the offline asset library... THANK YOU. .... btw after placing the asset you should be able to rotate it before returning to the library.

    Been working with this a for awhile now, and quite frustrated with how it works. At some point when creating a path you either want to add or remove time between keyframes but keep timing the same between other keyframes...this could easily be accomplished with a Ctrl feature. Hold Ctrl while sliding keyframe and that will either push or pull trailing keyframes when moving the current keyframe, keeping their time between frames the same.

    the Initial Timeline has no way of seeing where each keyframe is in the time line (ie its actual timestamp)

    so if a path is 1 min 30 sec. how much time is between keyframe 1 and 2? cant tell unless you click on the keyframe.

    for example if you stop and rotate about the z axis you want to slow this down so you can see things smoothly and not get people sick. but if you already added trailing keyframes this becomes very tedious.

    the whole video editor dialog box should be movable (ie to another screen), streatchable, hideable.

    also would be nice if you could grab the camera and and slide it about with ctrl and alt features that lock axis's. (ie sketchup)

    these are some of my early thoughts, many ideas to improve program.

    i do want to say tho, that Enscape is outstanding, and keep up the great work. Let your Dev team know of the great work they are creating.

    Keep listening to clients and improving it and you will eventually be the Leader in Rendering Software commanding great market share.

    Animation, (cars, people, lights, objects) is a must addition to this program. With timeline improvements this can be accomplished.

    like being able to turn lights on and off during a walk thru... requires much finer control in the time line.
