No, Enscape has it's own material system, does not adapt Vray materials, very simple and fast software to achieve animation and VR work

I've moved from V-Ray to Enscape recently for walk-throughs, and can highly recommend it!

The warning has to do with your GPU, I assume you are on a laptop with an Intel integrated GPU which is not good enough to work with Enscape.

On your system I doubt it, you would need a week to render it if indeed it was even possible, sorry mate but your machine is just not suited for such things.

Once again, I would suggest you take a look at Shapespark I think it might do what you are looking for. Yes, they have their own material handling as well.

Dprince,

Are you running Enscape on a Mac with BootCamp? Anyway if on a Mac see if you can select the GPU by turning off Automatic graphics switching in the Energy Saver settings. It will make the computer use a higher-performing card if you have one. Of course the card might still not be up to Enscape standards.

I do not think so. The output is for viewing in HTML/WebGL and VR.

This was an issue in the past with laptops. You still may have a graphics card Enscape can use. Try this https://enscape3d.com/knowledgebase/multi-gpu-issues/

VRay will render animation based on SketchUp scene tabs. For example I would make a scene tab for point A of my walkthrough, then one for point B, point C, etc.

Setup your animation settings in model info with Scene delay off and a reasonable amount of time for the transitions, so the speed is the way you like it.

Render using VRay with animation enabled and saving to a folder. VRay will save each frame out. Then use an application to combine the frames into a video file. I bet there are a bunch of free ones. Photoshop will also do this now.

There are plugins that can make the walkthrough smoother and with animation (doors open for example) but that becomes more complex, and you have to make sure its VRay compatible, but the procedure above is the fastest way to get up and running (pun intended).

Smustard had some nice path animation plugins a long time ago. I am not sure if they still work. Worth a shot.

The settings I would recommend are having a powerful CPU or using a render-farm.

Several years ago I rendered a animation with Vray 1.5 on one PC.
I believe rendering took 4-5 weeks 24/7.
I would NOT do it like that again. :lol:
With Enscape I rendered a 4 minutes animation in less than an hour.

If you're serious about rendering an animation with V-Ray, I would highly recommend looking at render farms, there are quite a few options out there.

You said in a PM you had $1600 to spend on a new laptop, this will get it done:

Considering you are usimg Vray 3.4 I assume you are not using GPU rendering, so the alienware will have more cores than the ASUS, both will work great for Enscape however

Here's a list from Chaos Group: https://www.chaosgroup.com/render-farms (not all of these have SU+V-Ray support, but if you narrow the list to just SU, it misses farms like Rebus)

And they have their own cloud: https://www.chaosgroup.com/cloud (I haven't used it so I couldn't speak to how it compares.)
