How can Chaos’ Connected Workflows help collaboration?

Chaos connected workflows

The interoperability of Chaos tools with Connected Workflows allows designers and architectural visualization artists to easily connect Chaos’ visualization tools like Enscape, V-Ray, and Vantage. This feature helps streamline workflows by enabling a smooth transition from real-time visualization to photorealistic rendering. By integrating these tools, Connected Workflows makes working across different software platforms easier, promoting efficient collaboration.

How do Connected Workflows work?

Chaos uses a standardized file format, .vrscene, to improve compatibility among its visualization tools. This file format contains all the necessary information for a project, including models, assets, lights, and materials. It allows designers to transfer their projects easily between various CAD applications like SketchUp, Rhino, Revit, and DCC software, as well as 3D design software like 3ds Max and Cinema 4D.

Thanks to this interoperability, you can take advantage of advanced visualization features in V-Ray, speed up architectural design, and enjoy smoother collaboration across the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. This means you can start a project in a CAD application, refine it in 3D design software, and then create photorealistic renders with V-Ray—all without losing any information or functionality.

Effortlessly transfer scenes from Enscape to V-Ray

In the following video, discover how easy it is to move data from Enscape to V-Ray. This streamlined process lets you refine and add intricate details to turn real-time designs into sophisticated, high-end visualizations. You can keep your original design choices and maintain continuity from concept to final render, allowing you to focus on bringing your creative vision to life without losing valuable time.

Connected Workflows for Architectural Designers

Elevate Your Render Quality

Real-time rendering is great for continuous design and quick iterations, but it often comes at the expense of render quality, with limitations in lighting accuracy and complex material effects. Achieving higher-quality renders beyond what real-time engines offer can be difficult because of locked visualization data.

With Chaos’ interoperability, architectural designers can:

  • Access advanced visualization by transitioning from the real-time solution Enscape to the photorealistic V-Ray within popular tools like SketchUp, Rhino, or Revit.
  • Improve your scenes with accurate lighting, realistic materials, and over 4,500 high-quality assets from the Chaos Cosmos library.
  • Easily export a .vrscene file from Enscape, using the vrscene (Beta) export feature, and send it to a visualization expert without losing any design details.

If you prefer real-time rendering but find yourself limited by scene size or need ray-traced quality, Chaos’ connected workflows offer a seamless transition to more robust visualization tools like Chaos Vantage.

Speed up workflows while maintaining design intent.

Artists often spend a lot of time converting data from other projects into their visualization tools. This typically involves dealing with multiple software platforms, leading to tight deadlines and interruptions to their creative process.

With Chaos’ interconnected visualization tools, artists who use V-Ray, a photorealistic solution, can:

  • Collaborate more easily with Enscape designers and support their visualization efforts.
  • Save time spent recreating designs and focus more on creativity.
  • Use the .vrscene importer (Beta) to import complete Enscape models into 3ds Max or Cinema 4D without losing visual accuracy.
  • Further enhance the project with V-Ray, adding creative touches without changing the original design concept.

For V-Ray users seeking an immersive experience and quicker design iterations, Chaos Vantage is the perfect addition. It provides high-quality real-time visualization, eliminating complex setups and ensuring true lighting and rendering with 100% ray tracing.
