Enscape to V-Ray compatibility unifies archviz workflows for the first time

With V-Ray 6 for SketchUp and V-Ray 6 for Rhino, architects and designers can combine Enscape with V-Ray for faster, smoother, and more productive collaboration.

After joining forces at the start of 2022, Chaos and Enscape have worked hard to make the most of our combined skills and give AEC professionals new workflows that make it easy to create and visualize their designs.

Today, we’re excited to announce a major step in the combining of our technologies: Enscape compatibility with V-Ray. Available in V-Ray 6 for SketchUp and V-Ray 6 for Rhino, and coming soon to V-Ray for Revit, this technology enables hassle-free transfer of Enscape projects into V-Ray.

A perfect match

Now, it’s possible to make use of Enscape’s highly tuned real-time technology and then move your project to V-Ray’s Academy Award-winning photorealistic rendering engine in one super-smooth pipeline. Nothing will get lost in translation, time is saved, and architects, designers, and artists can be sure that their designs match their original vision — and then some.

What’s more is that users can now see most Enscape materials, light sources, and compatible assets within V-Ray, negating the need to duplicate or restart projects from scratch. Want to go high-res? Swap these components for V-Ray and Cosmos assets and you’ll be able to produce jaw-droppingly high-quality renders.

More time to create and design

This new compatibility frees up time for everyone involved in the workflow. The design team can make use of Enscape’s real-time functionality to make quick changes, then artists can immediately see these design decisions in V-Ray and polish the project for final renders. You and your team will save time, accelerate your workflows, and improve collaboration.

The future of visualization

At the moment, this bridge only goes in one direction: from Enscape to V-Ray. But our teams are working together to make the most of the exciting new possibilities that open up when you combine world-class real-time rendering with photorealistic ray tracing. Stay tuned for many more incredible announcements in the near future.

We hope you enjoy making the most of this giant leap in visualization technology. We encourage you to let us know what you think and share your ideas on our forum.
