Author Topic: Save File Size  (Read 597 times)


Is it a bad thing for me to do these simple steps below before saving the project in order to free up my disc space?

1- Clean the project (File > Clean)
2- Set All materials' size to 512.
3- Bake All texture sets with 512 resolution.

I am prety sure first two step is ok but not sure about the third one. When I re-open my file, I just redo the whole process in reverse order with higher resolutions.

Thanks for the help.

Yes, bakes take up a lot of space in the file as they are stored in uncompressed 16 bits format, so lower resolution bakes will heavily impact the file size.

Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.
