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.

    The problem I have with my 3D Connexion Spacemouse is that Enscape works the opposite of what I have set in Sketchup. So I have to check or uncheck all of the 'reverse' buttons whenever moving between the two programs..(very annoying). I dont really navigate in Enscape anymore because of it...I just sync camera and navigate through sketchup during presentations.


    Is this regular behavior or is its some kind of bug? Probly something to take up with 3D Connexion, I reckon....

    Since it's been a year since I first commented/upvoted on this, I figured I would check back in. Any progress on this (saving the Enscape setting with individual sketchup files)? If not, could I please get another upvote added for this?

    Update:


    Digging through projects I noticed the glass artifact problem started for me somewhere between January 25 and 30th.


    While troubleshooting, I tried combinations of old drivers & Enscape versions (going back to November) along with the lastest versions. old/new, new/old, old/old, new/new. None of those combos fixed the problem.


    Disabling one of my GPU's so I was only running a single RTX 2080 fixed the glass artifact problem for me.


    Something interesting that could possibly help the devs: while reviewing log files, I did notice a several windows updates on January 28th. Have you looked into the possibility that windows broke something? (we all know how much windows updates tend to 'help' things) ;)


    Screenshot of windows updates that coincide with when the glass problems started on my machine:


    BTW, if anyone has any pointer on how to fix this and can get back to me quickly, it would be much appreciated. I have a huge meeting starting in an hour at 10:30am Eastern, and was hoping to use Enscape. :)

    Any luck with disabling GPU's? I just tried yesterday's (Feb 25) Enscape preview release and still getting the glass reflection artifacts. I've attached a screenshot showing my system's graphics drivers. Anyone tried older drivers or older Enscape version combinations to get rid of artifacts?


    Also, what is the best way to go about 'disabling all but one card'? Device manager? or do you need to unplug the card?


    Thanks!


    Again, running Windows 10 Pro, Sketchup Pro 2018 with the following GPU setup:


    Cool beans. Figured I should check with you before I gave up. Appreciate the quick reply, as usual. :thumbsup:


    That was my next question about the web based solution. We've already collected deposit on this project and went to deliver VR exe....and then found out the client only owns Macs....until then it hadn't even occurred to me that there may be a compatibility issue. (I try to live life cut off from apple products) :)


    We're currently trying to figure out shapespark so we can still deliver something to this client. But it would definitely be cool to have a way to export Enscape to web for the 'Mackers' and even clients that just don't have powerful enough specs to run Enscape. The less programs we need to use, the betterererer....


    Cheers!

    Yes! Laubwerk support would be so helpful for quick viz. I was a bit bummed when I couldn't get the full mesh to render, only the Laubwerk low-poly proxy. Definitely put down a vote for me! :thumbsup:

    Hello,

    Just checking to see if there has been any developments in exporting VR for people to run on Mac? (without a boot camp windows installation...) Or if anyone has found a workaround?

    I've ruined / had to redo settings for a few more projects since posting here. I even erased or saved over another projects settings accidentally while trying to save save settings. Would really love a solution to this similar to other engines, where settings are saved automatically when changed and pertain only to that file. Ithink still being able to save settings will still be very handy, so you can quickly change from say, day to night settings on the fly. I' ve also noticed I have the same problem with camera paths ...i cant remember to save them and lose all my animation. - I think it might be good to treat those in the same manner. Maybe even a camera path 'lister' where you can manage multiple camera paths in the same file....? Dont want to sound like im complaining too much. Enscape is exceeding all my expectation so far....just want to give constructive feedback. Thanks!

    I have problems on all my models with 'light leaks'. The Skp model is definitely modeled perfectly..(I did it myself) ;), I find that I need to go back and add extra geometry to 'seal up' the model and keep unwanted light leaks at bay. Seams to be light leaking in anywhere there are seams or even a group meeting on the ceiling face. Is there a setting I dont know about that can tighten things up a bit and get rid of light leaks?


    Thanks!


    Wow...so glad I came across this post. I've been searching near and far on the interwebs trying to get more info on matterport and how to create matterport style VR experiences from 3D models/renderings. We do a lot of new construction, but I'm loving how your product is looking for renovations. thanks for sharing! I have a lot more research to do now. :)


    Oh, I should also add, if anyone has some advice on creating matterport style walkthroughs from enscape panoramas, Im all ears. (or just point me to other threads on here where it has already been discussed.) thanks!

    +100 for me.


    I'm loving Enscape, but settings not being saved with each file and having to save/load presets for each file seems very arcane for how innovative, forward-thinking, and....just how plug n play the rest of Enscape is. It has messed me up many times so far. I'll get a scene set up perfect, then work on another project, and when I get back around to the other project I find that I totally screwed up the first project. This might be ok for people working on 2 projects at a time, but when you are working on 10-20 at a time this is just unrealistic.. I couldn't imagine if it were up to me to save my Vray settings for each file... Being able to save presets is great. Its nice to set up deafault interior/exterior settings to have an easy way to start a project. But I would really love that if I hit save on a sketchup file, I knew that Enscape saves everything exactly how I have it set up at that moment for this one particular sketchup file, and will not effect any other sketchup files I'm using Enscape with. Really impressed with Enscape so far and can't wait to see how you keep improving the program.


    Thanks!

    Thanks,

    Yes, when i first read that article I somehow missed the fact that you don't necessarily need a 'cross' format skybox, you can use a regular 2:1 panorama. That will be easier to make, just basic Photoshop panorama stitching.
