Use the View Management button via the Enscape User Interface (UI) to manage your Views.
You can create, rename and link a View to a Visual Setting Preset in Enscape itself. Deleting Views must be done in the associated CAD you have installed Enscape for.
You can also mark a View as a Favorite View, which is designed to be used in both the Enscape Virtual Reality Presentation Mode and the Enscape Standalone Executable files.
Favorite Views will help you and your clients navigate quickly and easily to pre-selected viewpoints within your projects.
The implementation of this functionality in Enscape allows it to work in much the same way in Revit, Rhino, Archicad, Vectorworks, and Sketchup.
To create a Favorite View you need to have first of created a View. These Views can be either the actual 3D Views / Scenes / Named Views from the respective CAD, which can be created in the CAD itself using its own native view creation methods, or by setting up your View in the Enscape viewport and then by clicking on the Enscape Create View button which is found in the View Management panel.
When you want to create a View using the Enscape ‘Create View‘ function, you will need to have the Enscape viewport running, as the function is embedded in the UI within the Enscape viewport.

Once you do have Enscape open, move in the Enscape viewport to the View you would like to create and then click on the Create View button.

Once you have clicked the Create View button, you will be prompted to give that View a CAD View Name. Click the Create button when done.
Name the View
Once you have named your view, you can mark it instantly as a Favorite View by clicking the star symbol (so it turns from an orange outline to a solid orange color), and then you can click Create for that View to be listed in the View Management list under the respective projects category.
The newly created View
Click the Edit button next to the View to return to the Edit section, where you can click the orange star to add / remove the View as a Favorite. You can also rename the View here, if desired. Once done, click the Save button, which will return you to the View Management area where all the project’s Views are listed.

To Batch Render a set of Views, whether marked as a Favorite or not, click the Batch Rendering button in the Enscape UI.
The Batch Rendering button
This will open the Batch Rendering list which shows all Views contained in a project. Select the Views you want to Batch Render by marking the checkbox next to each View name and click on the Render Selection button.
If you have a Default Folder specified in the Visual Settings – Output tab, then Enscape will automatically begin the batch render process. If this is not specified, then when you click the Render Selection button, a dialog window will open asking you to select the location to save to.
If a View is connected to a Setting Preset, then the Setting Preset will override the global settings. This means you can potentially batch Rrender individual images out to specific locations.
If Automatic Naming is enabled in the Visual Settings – Output tab, then each View will be appended with the name of that View. Again, if a View is linked to a Settings Preset, this may be applied individually.
The Batch Rendering list
If you want to delete Views then this must be done from within the CAD.
In Revit, when you create a view, it not only gets listed in Enscape’s View Management list, but also in Revit’s Project Browser, where if you right click on the view you want to delete, a menu will appear giving you that delete option. The View will be automatically removed from Enscape’s View Management.
Revit’s Project Browser also lists the created views
It’s the same for SketchUp, where the views are listed under the SketchUp Scenes panel. Click on the minus in a circle symbol to delete them.

In Rhino, you can delete views by opening the Named View panel, click on the View and then click the red X, as seen in the following screenshot.

In Archicad you can delete a View by opening the Archicad View Map panel, and then right clicking on the View you would like to delete, and select Delete from that menu.
You will receive a warning message informing you that this process is not reversible and to confirm deletion.

In Vectorworks, you delete a View via Vectorworks’ Save Views panel, right clicking on the View to get the menu options.
