Baking Lightmaps?Community Forums/Developer Stations/Baking Lightmaps?
| does anyone know of a way to bake a lightmap texture into a single texture, with the uv coords correct... is there a utility or tool out there that'll do this... something a lil cheaper than 3DSMax, or a util that'll take a B3d and create a single texture from multiple ones...|

I cannot believe you had to ask!!!!
Especially after telling you to use it last week!
| i dunno IP... must've got lost in the jumble that is crowding up my mind lately... sorry...|
| ..very interesting...hmmm |
| Maybe he's gay? who knows. |
| Just to mention it: Mark's own Maplet (available on this very site <g>) bakes .B3D lightmaps.|
Also I've used LightMapMaker from WindSoft (now AwingSoft) with decent results. I paid the ~$30 fee when it was charged for, but then they released that full version for free. It's available at:
Its baked lightmaps can be used with Blitz3D (I did some tests with 'em).
| Warning: The Lightmapmaker install file from the above webpage:|
LMMAKER039.EXE contains the following trojan:
At least that's what Antivir says. Damage potential is rated low to medium, more infos see here:
It may be a mistake, like eg. when it said moleboxed EXEs are all infected, because there has been one infected moleboxed exe. (Antivir used a molebox signature). However, be careful!
EDIT: I just scanned the file using the meta scanner from:
None of the scanners found something, but "Norman Virus Control" claims to have found "W32/DIYNet.A" that is not a alias for the "TR/Drop.Delf.fz.1.A".
If somebody can confirm this...
| Scanned it with Norton(latest version) and System Suite and neither found anything. |
| Ok, thanks. Nevertheless, I'd be careful with this. Avira (in fact Antivir sequel) just moved it to the quarantaine folder, so it may be harmful.|
Probably it was a temporary thing.
