Enscape 4.0 is here! It marks a significant leap forward in real-time rendering and visualization, emphasizing a unified user experience across different platforms, notably including macOS alongside Windows for the first time.

This version is described as laying the groundwork for future developments with a reworked codebase that enhances performance and stability. The new Enscape version also introduces tighter integration within the Chaos ecosystem, allowing for more cohesive development across operating systems​.

What is the latest version and features of Enscape 4.0?

New people & animated vegetation assets

One of the standout features of Enscape 4.0 is its extensive array of new assets, including people and animated vegetation, which enrich the realism and vibrancy of visualizations.


NVIDIA Denoiser for capture exports

The introduction of the NVIDIA Denoiser for capture exports significantly improves image quality, especially in settings with minimal direct light. For Windows users, there are beta features like ray-traced artificial lights, which produce more accurate lighting effects, and improvements in reflections and global illumination for hardware that supports ray tracing.

Timeline Animations

For those working in collaborative environments, Enscape 4.0 introduces new tools designed to streamline workflows and enhance communication between designers, architects, and clients. Features such as Timeline animations and enhanced commenting tools facilitate real-time feedback and more efficient project development cycles​.
