View Full Version : 3Ds max Baking NORMS with holes
03-29-2011, 09:55 AM
3Ds max is starting to do some crazy stuff... i baked a NORM map for a model im working on and this is how it came out.
Any idea why it doing this??

I'm not sure what the deal is with the white speckles all over the normal map, but some of the problems on your edges and cylindrical objects might be caused by size/shape differences between your high and low poly meshes.
Take a look through this thread, it might help you fix some of the issues.

crap... now i need to redo all cylinder parts -.- pffff..... oh well.... thanks... still dont know why it baking the norm so weird...
Super Happy Cow

Erm...Might try fixing this problem before you fix the cylindrical errors. They might be caused by the same thing.
This is some crazy shit btw.

tell me about it... i have no idea what`s going on here... hope i dont have to reinstall 3Ds... although i bought a tutorial video from Eat 3D The Dozer and i rendered the model the same way the guy shows useing Mentalray.. could it be that mental ray is doing something to the bake?? i did switch back to standard scanline... but still the same...

try sticking a push modifer on the low and pushing it out by a tiny amount.
The wiki is great, you should check it out.

wow... loads to read thanks r_fletch_r
I also see that some rays are missing, how does your render window look like in max? Do you get a lot of reds? How does your cage look like?

To get rid of the black speckles I think you need to press 9, click Renderer, Turn off (or on) Global Super Sampling.

ok turining Global Supersampler off works... but the quality is still crap... map size is 1024 x 1024 -.- why it doing this to me!!?? damn thing don't like me lol
03-30-2011, 09:51 AM
if its the supersampler perhaps changing the sampling method would help

well i tried to bake it in xNormal and this is what the NORM Map looks like
Anyone have any idea now?? lol this is weird
