Author Topic: help needed with AO baking...  (Read 567 times)

Hi, I was wondering if anybody could help answer a few questions i have on baking an AO map?

I found it surprisingly easy to get my normals baked - I exploded my high and low poly to do this. However when I try and bake an AO map nothing ever happens :(

Should I bake the AO map using the same exploded meshes of should i bake using unexploded?

Also, I'm not quite sure what the best AO/common settings would be to use. Ive tried tweaking them all slightly but to no effect :-/

thanks for any help you can give!
