Author Topic: Normal map artifacts - that I can't see on the model  (Read 823 times)

Hi All,

Any thoughts why I may be getting artifacts appearing when baking the normal map of my model? Also I hope that I can fix this in some way, whether in C4d or Painter?

Substance Painter


Any input really appreciated. Thanks


Just as a quick update, I've noticed that it coincides with other cut in holes on the model...but I still hope for a solution if possible!

Hi Froyok,

I've sorted it! It was the 'Relative to Bounding Box' check box in the Bake mesh maps section. I unchecked it and it corrected the problem. From then nothing came through to the outside.

Thanks for your reply though!
