Videos are probably the most effective tool for conveying design intent in architectural industry. In today’s busy and complex world, we need tools that are both powerful and easy to use. Enscape makes the whole process of developing and editing a video quick and easy. The way in which this functionality was implemented into Enscape allows it to work in Revit, SketchUp, Rhino, and ArchiCAD identically.
Seeing a high-quality video can be comforting - because of the natural sense of motion in the 3D visualization that Enscape creates. These videos can also be used as a powerful marketing tool for architects, designers, and their clients.
Enscape makes the whole process of developing and editing a video easy. It only takes a few clicks to add any number of keyframes. The keyframes allow options like morphing the view direction or duration between keyframes. Once the path is defined, the video can be previewed or exported in a short time.
The Enscape video features make it possible to fine-tune the project. The shaky camera option simulates natural movement similar to that of a handheld camera, while the easing in/out option starts and finishes the video at a nice slower speed along the camera path. Timestamp is especially useful for adjusting the speed of the camera for each keyframe or for the whole video. This allows the user to speed up certain individual keyframes or let the camera glide slower. With the option Time of Day it's possible to create a timelapse effect or to adjust the time of your animation.
Field of View creates a zoom effect. You can use this to determine the angle of the camera lens, to capture the whole scene or zoom in on a small portion of your model.
With Depth of Field you can adjust the focal point. This feature is useful for creating an emphasis on a specific part of a scene.
Due to its software architecture, the Enscape engine enables architects and designers to export a video in a short period of time. There’s no longer any need to wait overnight or put much effort into post-production.
You can find some of the best user videos made with Enscape on the company’s website.
