Live Updates and View Synchronization_rework

Introduction to Live Updates

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

Live Updates are also available while our VR mode is activated. This allows making adjustments to a project and the person which is wearing the VR headset will be see the corresponding changes in real time.

Further, Live Updates are always activated by default. To deactivate it, please follow the corresponding instruction for each software below.
