  • Hey Kaj,


    I work for a full service firm in Seattle and we are constantly working with our Landscape team to get the most accurate representation of landscape and the building together. Often times this means screening back the transparency of our landscape Elements so we can see the building beyond but still understand the landscape context around. We typically work in Revit 2019, Sketchup and Rhino on occasion during the early stages of the project.


    That being said, I wanted to follow up a post that you made back in 2017 about RCP transparency and see if there is was any development on this thread. (see link to original post below)Can you give an update?


    Transparency of RPC families, shopping window effect - how to?


    If not, I am curious to see if you have a better/simpler workflow than my current one which is a bit of a headache.


    Since we work in Revit I start by putting all my "trees/entourage" on a workset or phase so it is easy to filter on/off. From there I end up exporting a landscape/people only image with material ID and Depth Channel as well as a Building Only file from the same view with the Material ID and Depth Chanel. The issues with this, is with this is that with the building workset turned off, their are trees that end up floating on the inside of the building, or floating in the sky. This results in having to bring all 6 of these images in Photoshop and begin masking out regions. While this works, it would be great to just be able to toggle the transparency directly out of Revit using the materials properties saving a lot of time and headache during post processing.


    Thanks for you time!

  • Hi Kaj B.
    where do i get mateiral to study enscape for archicad?

  • Hi Kaj. I have a problem witn a curtain wall from revit, it is created with glass panels of 30cm in order to look like an uglass facade. My main problem is that grids between panels appear in the revit model but they disappear in enscape, what can I do?
    My other issue is that I want the uglass to look like steven holl´s building (frosted and traslucent) and I can not manage to put the proper material in revit, it appears or completely transparent or solid...could you please help me with these two problems? Thanks a lot!

  • I've just installed Enscape for Revit and installed Oculus Rift app but I can't get it off the Oculus home screen to switch to Enscape, Am I doing something dumb?
