Support for recording or "baking" shading and lighting
results into texture maps using -bake command-line
and/or new statements.
The baked texture maps can be used for accelerating
software rendering or for real-time hardware rendering.
Almost any feature can be baked: color, opacity,
position, normal, tangents, programmable shading,
indirect illumination, ray tracing, soft shadows, caustics,
filtering and anti-aliasing etc.
Bitmap can be recorded at 8-bit, 16-bit.

Thanks,

MaxG

    does the new baking in 1.7.3 / 1.7.4 work for you?

    Looks really good! I don't have tried yet these routine. It
    would be nice if you can provide an executable to allow to
    automatize these routines (like SiTex Graphics BakeAir).

    There will be support for this in the next release - though it will involve using
    bake3d, and then rendering out the texture in a second pass. So it's two-pass,
    and you will need to modify your shaders to bake out.

    Cheers
