Features

Manual

The workflow is very simple:

  1. Prepare the object so that it's ready for a normal single frame baking (unwrap and assign an image to the uv-layer, set wanted baking settings).
  2. Save the image you just assigned with a "template name", for example "image.png". This filename and path will be used as a template for the animated bake results, i.e. "image0001.png", "image0002.png" and so on.
  3. Set the desire frame range in the bake panel.
  4. Start "Animated Bake" and follow progress in the console.
