Author Topic: Problems baking with substance painter versions 2019.2 onwards  (Read 3027 times)

So I am having trouble baking in substance painter versions 2019.2 onwards. Below are 2 images of the same file one was saved a few weeks ago and baked perfectly fine, the other marked with red ink is when I try to bake the same file now. So the file opens fine but when I now press bake mesh maps I get these new errors.

I have tried downloading versions of substance painter before version 2019.2 and that baker still works great. So I'm assuming its an issue with the new baker. My graphics cards are up to date, i have 2 GTX 980 gpu with SLI, i have tried turning off SLI mode for substance painter still have the errors. Sometimes when I bake it will skip the normal map altogether and be black, sometimes it will bake parts of it and you can see on the UV space that there are square chunks missing.






here's the log file after a bake

Can you try the following steps and see if baking works again ?

(I can't see your images by the way, you may want to attach them to your post as well.)

tried turning off those settings, still not working, I'll try and work out how to upload the images on here

These are your image URLS:





Sometimes the site will attach a image but forget the "https://forum.substance3d.com/" part in front but put this instead: http://attachments/images/b92b57c037d96fa5e164080b958630f5.jpg

Hmm, that's odd indeed. It looks like the baker is missing your mesh which result in empty areas filled with the soft gradients.
Can you check just to be sure that your low-poly and high-poly meshes overlap properly ?
