Live Updates and View Synchronization

Introduction to Live Updates

When making changes to materials, lights, objects, etc. via the main CAD software being used, these adjustments are instantly recognized and automatically translated into Enscape. This functionality can of course also be deactivated when required.

Live Updates are also available whilst VR mode is activated. This allows making adjustments to a project which, when implemented, allows the user who is wearing the VR headset to see the corresponding changes in real time.

Furthermore, Live Updates are always activated by default. To deactivate this feature, please follow the corresponding instructions for each software set out below.

As long as Live Updates is enabled, you have the ability to click and access the Manage Views function where you can select a view, sun position, or time of day that gets created using the Create View button in the Enscape ribbon.

This functionality also allows navigation via the main CAD software only, without having to make use of Enscape’s controls.
