Author Topic: Substance Painter 2018 Crash While Baking AO  (Read 2719 times)

Hi all. I am having problems while baking texture maps - specifically the AO during which SP freezes and stops responding. All other maps have been baked without a problem.

This problem occurs while working on this tutorial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk_YRkDsJrQ).

Everything has been set up as per the video.

Attaching some pictures for troubleshooting. Hope you can help out. Thank you!

1. AO baker settings: imgur.com/a/mrjRe
2. imgur.com/a/2a4SF (SP is reporting problems with mesh normals)

Rig:

i5 4570
16 GB RAM
GTX 1060 3 GB RAM

I also set the TDR as per official Allegorithmic tutorial.

Hi,

We have an issue on the AO baker that is causing Painter to hang on the AO bake with some meshes. We have a bug fix coming soon that resolves this issue.

I am having similar issues when I am baking and it crashes the entire program. I've already filed a bug report in regards to this crash and it is repeatable... I am baking out a normal map and the program just crashes without warning.

The new 2018.1.1 hotfix release from this morning should fix baking issues.
