    Thank you SO much for posting this workflow - I was just having this problem in an enclosed room with matte materials, yet there was color glow on nearly every surface... even with a white background and using the "ultra" rendering setting. The workflow helped so much to know the right adjustments to make.

    Reflectivity issues have been solved through changing material applications - instead of creating and applying materials through Flamingo, I applied materials just through Rhino's material editor. No more reflections!

    Updated sample/progress image below: the flooring and wall seating textile have been updated, and no longer have reflections. For comparison the orange seating is applied through Flamingo, and still has reflections.

    It would be nice if Enscape could communicate with the Flamingo plugin for materials - there's a larger file of automatic materials that Flamingo offers, and it's easier to create materials through Flamingo.

    I wasn't able to figure out the workaround, which just may be a lack of technical skills on my part - that may work, but I just couldn't figure it out.

    But so long as I've got a resolution currently, I can make it work :)


    Thank you for the replies! I can try using Rhino materials only, rather than going through the Flamingo plugin, and see how that reacts.

    Micha: thanks for the workaround suggestion! - I'm not super familiar with that process (or Vray), but I can see what may work along those lines for Flamingo.

    Update: I did also test renaming my materials, as I know this can be a factor in how Enscape renders reflections/textures etc. Renaming had no affect - I'm still seeing high levels of reflections on materials that should not be reflective at all.


    I'm a student, new to using Enscape. I am trying to use Enscape through Rhino 5, with the Flamingo nxt plugin for materials.

    Some of my materials are showing as highly reflective, even though Flamingo's material settings in Rhino do not have any reflective properties. Any ideas?

    I've attached a sample image below - the space is still being developed, but I wanted to test out materials.

    The specific issues are the wood flooring showing reflections, and the seating along the left wall that should be a dark blue textile but is showing as purely reflective and glossy.

    Any help on reducing reflections would be greatly appreciated!!
