There are several reasons why your frame rate (fps) might be low, resulting in single frames being strongly noticeable when moving in Enscape.
Your computer’s system specifications are too low
Your project is too large
Performance issues can generally be improved by adjusting the Rendering Quality, under the Visual Settings window – Main tab, to a lower value. We recommend setting this to High if you find performance sub-optimal. This will boost performance by turning off some of the more expensive rendering features.
Setting the Rendering Quality to Draft will give you the best performance, but at the expense of losing reflections.
This will boost performance by turning off some of the more expensive rendering features.

Enscape provides further options to enhance performance such as and these can be found under the General Settings – Rendering tab:
NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing – In cases where RTX is causing memory issues. RTX is enabled by default and a restart of Enscape will be required when toggling this feature.
NVIDIA DLSS – Deep Learning Super Sampling is an RTX technology that uses AI to boost frame rates, meaning high resolutions can be used whilst maintaining a solid frame rate (Auto Exposure needs be enabled in the Visual Settings when DLSS is activated).
NVIDIA Denoiser – Uses AI to guess what the image should look like without the noise.
Ray Traced Sun Shadows (for all images) – Enabling this will enable ray-tracing for shadows instead of using shadow maps and will provide a higher level of shadow detail.
Grass/Carpet Rendering – When disabled, a slight performance increase can be had, but carpet and grass will geometry will not be rendered.
Restmode – When enabled, animations will stop a few seconds after you cease movement in the Enscape viewport.
Further Perfomance Options
For some projects, Enscape’s initial loading time can take a few minutes whilst it loads all the information required.
Loading time is also determined by how quickly the CAD software can communicate the content of the project. The more complex your project is in the CAD software, the longer it may take for Enscape to load. To shorten loading times, try the following:
