    V-Ray for Revit, Anyone Using?

    I currently use a Revit to Max/Vray workflow and was ready to add Enscape to the mix for the interactive and walkthrough capability. The release of V-Ray for Revit has caused some hesitation. It has a lot I like except walkthrough/flythrough (it may be there in a future release, don't know).

    I *think* I would like the flythrough capability of Enscape but not sure if it's particularly useful for day to day work. I do see the benefit for exporting out for a client. The interactive rendering would be the more useful functionality for my needs I think.

    Those of you using V-Ray for Revit and also Max/V-Ray, is it a worthwhile add? Is not having walkthrough ability a deal-breaker for you?

    Let me give you my view on this question, from the developers perspective.

    I consider the two as separate use cases right now. For the maximum realism, I'd go with VRay. For generating presentations (e.g. design review) or generating videos or other deliverables (video/panorama) within seconds, I think Enscape is the way to go.

    Our vision is to also reach the photorealistic quality combined with the benefits of a realtime renderer, we're getting closer with every release.

    Thanks Thomas. Enscape fills a bigger hole for me at the moment so that's where I'll start.

    @Thomas Schander: We are using Enscape here at Kay Elliott Architects, and it is very good indeed. As a comparison, we also have Lumion, but we only use it for animations, rather than still images. Enscape works well for quick renderings and accept Revit electric lights pretty well.

    One of the issues we found is that we work a lot with walls with applied graphics (images), and we had to split the model in two because Enscape was not able to handle all the graphics added on each wall, which were all different (96 in total!). We also found some materials were missing when using Enscape v1.7 on one of our computers. We uninstalled Enscape v1.7 and installed 1.6 to rectify the issue which may or may not be an isolated incident (we're still looking at it, and we notified you guys as well).
