Introduction to Texture Baking

Learn how to bake flawless maps for your game models with this ultimate introduction. By the end of Introduction to Texture Baking, you'll know how to bake every kind of model you'll encounter professionally. The techniques you'll learn are used by every game studio, from small indie studios to big AAA productions.

Perfect Bakes Every Time

We identify what kinds of textures we can bake, why we may want to bake them, and possible use-cases for each later down the pipeline. While baking allows us to capture a significant amount of detail, knowing what certain textures do and how we could use them is important.

Professional Techniques

Learn techniques normally reserved for the big studios in Introduction to Texture Baking. We cover ray cages, mesh linking, hard and soft edges, high and low poly, duplicated shells, exploding meshes, floating geometry, normal map formats, and much more! You'll also learn how to fix bad bakes, a skill every professional needs to know. Included are also exercises for you to do in order to get perfect bakes every time.

Charlie “Chunck” Trafagander is a Freelance Game Artist, Indie Dev, Tutorial-Maker, and in general a curious mind. Having worked for a few Indie developers, he has been able to touch most roles in game development, which he also likes to break down in various formats on his YouTube channel “Get Learnt”.
