Integrates seamlessly into our design process

Great tool and super responsive team in their company. The support team helps you whenever you need a tip, the forum is great for exchange and their roadmap is spot on for what we need.

Pros

I don't want our architects to spend time learning a new tool, Enscape just takes what's there and makes it presentable to stake holders (internally and externally)

Cons

If you want super nice animations (moving people etc), Enscape is not the best tool. But we don't need that a lot, so it's fine.

Reasons for Switching to Enscape

Fast and Quality GPU Renderings right inside Sketchup

Enscape creates awesome looking results in very little time, GPU rendering and Ray tracing are the future and this engine leverages this. There are a couple things I would improve (see Above) but they are doing things that almost no one has been able to do in terms of SketchUp Integration.

Pros

First, the all-around awesome integration with SketchUp is the best thing of this software. There is a scenes, material and all settings work together seamlessly. Also, geometry doesn't take too much time to generate, so reviewing your scene in real-time while making changes is possible. Ray Tracing Brings another layer of realism to Enscape, and accurate reflections. The Asset Library is also very complete, and soon will have the option to edit materials. Tethered VR Support

Cons

I have a couple of points that I did not like. Stitching when creating VR 360 Renderings, currently they come out with Artifacts. Not sure if this will be fixed soon. No way to do Batch 360 Renderings or Animations. It is VERY hard to calculate exposure in 360 images. It depends on where you are looking at when the 360 Render starts. So It can be different every time. Creating Overexposed or underexposed images. WebVR is very laggy and does not look as good as the offline renderings/ tethered experience you can generate with Enscape, light baking integration would solve this. Textures cannot read Relative Paths, so they get broken a lot.

Reasons for Choosing Enscape

Render Quality, Speed, Ease of use and Ray Tracing, VR support.

Instantly see how your projects will look in real life.

High quality renders are a must when coming to sell your idea to a client, and Enscape totally helps you with it. And if you want to take it to the next level, you can do a walkthrough video of your project.

Pros

I use Enscape with Revit and it is super easy to use, just in two clicks you will have the life-like version of your project with no effort at all. How you move through your project is just like a video game (WASD) and makes everything way much simplier. It also comes with 1,000 + high quality assests for you to use in your project.

Cons

The only downside I see with Enscape is that, sometimes, when you try to add artificial lights in a dark ambient, they won't render in a correct way and it will look kind of blotched, so Night modes with light aren't their strength.

Rendering in real time

The workflow of the software was different than I expected.

Pros

It has a lot of features to do a really professional digital image and great videos.

Cons

It needs a computer with good components and it is a bit expensive.

Easy to a certain point

Overall it’s pretty easy to use which can save a lot of time but I am not as impressed with the quality output even if a lot of time is put into it, compared to other programs.

Pros

This is easy to use when plugged in to your revit central model - you can add materials while you are modeling in that area of your model. Certain materials come out really great with this program, for example carpet, and you can spend very little time inputting just a few elements to get a decent walk through model to show clients the space. I also appreciate when it is plugged in to your model that it is easy to turn off certain linked models or other elements that will not appear well in the enscape view, and I don’t have to export every time I can just switch to that view to see something in enscape

Cons

I am not a fan of the built in materials that come with it and have had a hard time with some pretty simple materials that are common building elements - maybe it is user error but sometimes it seems like my renderings are just kind of weird or off with enscape compared to other programs.

A great rendering program without much need

Pros

I love its ease, it's a great rendering program for when you want to finish quickly or don't have a large-capacity computer.

Cons

Poor rendering quality, you can't get more than what it offers no matter how much you edit.

impressing

Pros

Well, I would like to take a min and talk about their policy... I needed to do my project for school and I needed this program, but It was too expensive for me. (as I am studying) I discovered they have a free version for students! I was so surprised, thank you so much for the possibility!

Cons

Everything was just fine, no bad sides :)

Enscape Review

in general, love it. its quick and easy but looks great and integrates into your fav softwares.

Pros

i love how nimble this software makes rendering. you can zoom around your model in Rhino, Sketchup, or Revit (your pick) and see all the time what things look like in 3D. on top of that, you can hit 1 button and render the image you are currently looking at for presentations/collaboration. not only is it great for everyday use, but it can also be used to create more polished renderings. there are material ID and object ID channels that you can export to make post production a breeze. another great feature is the ability to save your views, so you can always go back to the same view if you need to (god forbid) re-render the frame.

Cons

one thing i don't like is that with a recent update, they changed how the view settings are stored and saved in a Revit project. if one person adjusts a saved view setting, they "own" the whole view settings element that was created. this means that other team members cannot modify that view setting until the first team member synconizes.

Enscape for people who are just starting to learn rendering softwares

Enscape for me is one of the best rendering softwares currently, i use it when i dont have enough time to spend on other software like v-ray, it gives me a very good results for the time i work, and also this software has plug-in for the most popular 3D modeling software like sketchup, Archicad, Revit, Rhino, etc.

Pros

With enscape you can create renders with very good quality, its easy to use and you can learn it quickly, i think Enscape is the best program for people who are just starting to learn rendering softwares, it has a great library of assets, where you can find a varety of furniture, vegetation, etc. It also has a good material editor, where you can insert PBR textures for greater realism

Cons

Enscape is a real-time rendering software , so you need to have a computer with good specs to make it work 100%, otherwise you have to lower the quality of the render
