Customize Enscape

Overview

The Enscape Customization and Preferences options allow the user to adapt the Enscape Viewport window to be more project or company specific, as well as options to pin the Enscape window on top of the host application and enable sound. The Customization options that can be adjusted include the window’s Title, Icon, Loading Screen, and any Watermark you would like to apply to your exports. These changes take affect on any exported Images, Video, and Standalone Executable files (but will not affect Web Standalone exports).

To access the Customization or Preferences settings, start Enscape and in the Enscape Viewport toolbar click on the gear icon that’s associated with the Enscape Window Settings dialog where the Customization tab should be shown by default.

How to customize the Enscape window

You have various options to adapt your Enscape window:

Loading Screen

Select a file (png, jpg, tga) to be used as Enscape loading screen, see example.
The recommended resolution is connected to your current screen resolution and aspect ratio.

If you have a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, we’ll recommend the same resolution for the used file.

Watermark

Use the Watermark option to first select a file and then also select from a set of nine predefined positions the image will be set to in the Enscape window. This could be your company logo and the name of the working architect, as seen in the example. Additionally, the overlay will be contained in Screenshots, Videos, Standalone Executable files and Web Standalone files that you create.

Window Icon

Select a file to be used as the window icon instead of the Enscape icon. The file has to be an Icon File (*.ico).

  • This option changes Enscape’s window icon. It affects any icon related to the Enscape window, including
    • The icon in the upper-left corner,
    • The task bar icon,
    • Other Enscape window related icons.
  • It affects Enscape when used from inside your CAD software and the standalone alike.
  • It also replaces the standalone’s file icon.
