Wow. I didn't know Enscape was so... desired.
Good luck.

Good luck.

For architects it's really popular for it's connectivity to Revit. And together with what I assume Chaos brings to the table in form of quality ray-tracing and Chaos Vantage, it might be a dealy combo.

Probably my lack of understanding; but a merge? I thought Chaos would eat Enscape for breakfast?

Different perspectives based on one's field. Some people I know had to google what Enscape is, but they are definitely bigger in the design and architecture (not arch-viz) spheres. Overall Chaos and Enscape currentl come out as roughly equals.

That’s mind blowing considering Enscape was founded in 2017. Which also speaks for how badly viz workflows are/have been in the AEC field compared to the demand for them!

Archviz is a small field ;)

There is probably a startup somewhere for fintech/cloud/AI founded 6 months ago that has higher valuation than our new joint company.

My bad, I’m sure I read 2017 in the press release or an article article about the merge. Still impressive.

And to clarify what I wrote about workflows for viz in AEC, I don’t mean Max and Corona. I mean that it’s been hard for a long time for architects to get a proper view of what they are actually proposing inside their own tools.

Do you know if it will be corona or vray as the main engine powering Enscape now?

Enscape will continue using its engine because of its unique capabilities - being realtime and working on wide variety of hardware. We are currently working with the Enscape team to figure out if adding offline rendering capability makes sense as an alternative.

Interesting. Yeah hardware is a big variable. Definitely a marked difference between architecture and viz in terms of investment and performance there in my experience.
