The features included

Whatever stage of the design process you are in, Enscape comes with a range of tools to help you develop your scenes and create wow-worthy visualizations.

As Enscape integrates into your design application, no syncing of models, importing, or exporting is required – it’s one seamless design and visualization workflow.

Included in this initial version of Enscape for Mac for SketchUp 2021 and 2022:

  • Real-time visualization: See your project render in real time as you model in SketchUp.
  • Real-time walkthrough: Walk and fly through your rendered project from an array of perspectives, including two-point and orthogonal.
  • Export options: Export and share your visualizations easily. Choose from still renders, 360-degree panoramas, panorama tour, and web standalone files.
  • Visual Settings: Perfect your scenes by adjusting atmosphere, image, capture, effects, and rendering settings.
  • Material Editor: Use height maps and adjust textures to raise the level of realism in your visualizations.
  • Synchronized views: Have the Enscape rendering window show the same view as your project.
  • Enscape Asset Library: Choose from +3,000 high-quality, low-poly 3D models to drop straight into your project.
  • Manage views: Create saved views to easily refer back to and seamlessly present your project from the best angles.
  • Batch rendering: Render your views in batches to save time having to render them individually.
  • Language support: Enscape for Mac is available in English, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish, French, Polish, and Dutch.

You may notice that some features not listed above are grayed out in your Enscape toolbar. These are features that we are working on and hope to provide in future versions to improve your design visualization experience on Mac.
