Over dinner with industry friends last night, I was reliably informed by a senior partner of an international firm that if our firms don't 'adopt the new ways of generating fast high-quality renders for our clients', we'd be left behind. The packages that are widely used now are ENScape, Twinmotion, Lumion and Vray. For a VW company like ours, who uses Vectorworks on Mac, these are the limitations: (1) ENScape >> Works with ArchiCAD, Revit and Sketchup, but NOT Vectorworks (2) Twinmotion >> Works with Vectorworks, but NO direct synchronisation like it does for Revit and ArchiCAD (3) Lumion >> Does not support Mac (4) Vray >> Works with Revit, ArchiCAD and Sketchup, but not work Vectorworks. (5) Vectorworks (Renderworks): Quality of render simply is nowhere like the packages above In conclusion, if I was to apply the conversation about being 'left behind by the industry' based on speed and quality of visualisations, Vectorworks (and to a lesser degree, Mac) is becoming a hinderance for us to compete against the companies that uses Revit, ArchiCAD or even the basic sketchup program. Our industry is quickly evolving, and as operators, we don't have time to wait for Vectorworks to take years to implement integrations (when others have working integrations already). Swift action is required from Vectorworks to help Vectorworks-based companies, and the Vectorworks package itself, to stay competitive. Following is a link from August last year, and I wonder if anyone can provide some update on conversations with Chaosgroup? Or if the engineering department has made progresses and inroads for integration with other rendering packages? When can VW get direct Synchronisation with TwinMotion? Would Vectorworks get integration with ENScape? How quickly can all this happen?
