Use the View Management button via the Enscape User Interface (UI) to manage your Views.
You can create, rename and link a View to a Visual Setting Preset in Enscape itself. Deleting Views must be done in the associated CAD you have installed Enscape for.
You can also mark a View as a Favorite View, which is designed to be used in both the Enscape Virtual Reality Presentation Mode and the Enscape Standalone Executable files.
Favorite Views will help you and your clients navigate quickly and easily to pre-selected viewpoints within your projects.
To create a Favorite View you need to have first of created a View. These Views can be either the actual 3D Views / Scenes / Named Views from the respective CAD, which can be created in the CAD itself using its own native view creation methods, or by setting up your View in the Enscape viewport and then by clicking on the Enscape Create View button which is found in the View Management panel.
When you want to create a View using the Enscape ‘Create View‘ function, you will need to have the Enscape viewport running, as the function is embedded in the UI within the Enscape viewport.
Click here for a full overview of how to Create and Select a View in Enscape.
Once you do have Enscape open, move in the Enscape viewport to the View you would like to create and then click on the Create View button.

Once you have clicked the Create View button, you will be prompted to give that View s Name. Once you have named your view, you can also mark it as a Favorite View by clicking the star symbol (so it turns from an orange outline to a solid orange color), and then you can click Create for that View to be listed in the View Management list under the respective projects category.
This will also create new scene inside your SketchUp Project.
Name the View
Back in the View Management list, click the Edit button that will appear when mousing over a View to return to the Edit area, where you can click the orange star to add / remove the View as a Favorite. You can also rename the View here, if desired.
The newly created View
Once done, click the Save button, which will return you to the View Management area where all the project’s Views are listed.

To update a view with a new, click the Edit Button on the view you would like to update:
You should now see a section called Camera. This is where you will have a section for the X, Y, Z , Orientation, Pitch and Yaw
*Pitch = degrees up and down
*Yaw is the degree in rotation
Once you start moving around in the Enscape window to the new desired position, you will see all these values updated.
*If you want to undo this, simply click the undo button and it will revert back to the original position.
Once you are happy with the new position of the view, simply click the Save Button at the bottom of the menu and the new changes will be reflected in your design application as well.

To Batch Render a set of Views, whether marked as a Favorite or not, click the Batch Rendering button in the Enscape UI.
The Batch Rendering button
This will open the Batch Rendering list which shows all Views contained in a project. Select the Views you want to Batch Render by marking the checkbox next to each View name and click on the Render Images button.
If you have a Default Folder specified in the Visual Settings – Output tab, then Enscape will automatically begin the batch render process. If this is not specified, then when you click the Render Image button, a dialog window will open asking you to select the location to save to.
If a View is connected to a Settings Preset, then the Settings Preset will override the global settings. This means you can potentially batch Render individual images out to specific locations.
If Automatic Naming is enabled in the Visual Settings – Output tab, then each View will be appended with the name of that View. Again, if a View is linked to a Settings Preset, this may be applied individually.
Clicking the arrow next to the Render Images button reveals the Render Mono Panoramas and Render Stereo Panoramas buttons. These will export panoramas from Views. These Panoramas then become available in the Upload Management – Panoramas dialog.
The Batch Rendering list
If you want to delete a View then this must be done under the SketchUp Scenes panel. Click on the minus in a circle symbol to delete them.
