    This addon keeps getting polished by a responsive dev who seems to understand what I need with baking maps. I've used it on a number of high profile projects & it's performed great. It saves a ton of time hacking around in blender. It keeps getting easier to use.

    If you create scenes in blender with huge amounts of objects to be used in a game engine this add-on is a huge time saver for packing textures. I want to give an applause to the developer for such a neat addon. The only thing missing is an atlas map creator for making uv packing more efficient, the smart uv option gives poor results and doing it manually is too time consuming, hope this feature will arrive at some point.

      Firstly, thank you for taking the time to provide this kind feedback. I really appreciate it.

      You make a good point about UVs, and I am taking it on board.
      While I cannot improve UV *unwrapping* itself (like all add-ons, I am more or less limited to the automatic UV unwrap methods that Blender offers – mainly Smart UV Project), following your suggestion, I am currently working on a new feature for SimpleBake whereby you can re-*pack* the existing UVs of all objects being baked to fit one combined UV map. I believe this is what you refer to as an “atlas map”.

      This new feature should be available in the next few days, I just need to finish some testing on it. It will come via a new version of SimpleBake, which will be available for automatic update within the add-on as usual. Look out for the notification in the SimpleBake panel.

      If this does not address your comment, please get in touch with me via Blender Market as I would like to discuss if there are any other ways that I can improve this for you. I am always on the lookout for ways to improve SimpleBake.

    Wonderful. It just works. Easy to use. I had an eevee character with several painted normal maps layered and connected to the principled normal input. Switched to cycles-baked normal map-switch back to eevee-plug in the baked image-done! (change the normal map node strength to 2)

      Great to hear. "It just works" is what SimpleBake is striving for! Hassle free baking.

    Mind. Blown. Spending a day or more baking out a scene literally takes less time than a lunch break now. Brilliant add-on.

    • Status451_CG 5 months ago

      Really, really happy to hear this! Thanks for the review :-)

    Brilliant add-on, I was literally dealing with the problem of making multiple maps 10 mins ago (big scene, many objects and complex shaders, I am not even half way through) and a blendernation notification popped up talking about his add-on... I find the coincidence hilarious :D maybe a sign of the universe, I didn't have to even think about it twice, jsut got it. Great work! Thanks!

      Thanks for the review. Great to hear this! Blendernation works in mysterious ways...!

    This tool is how Blender should have handled baking textures from the start! It's a must have for anyone working on games, real time rendering, or optimizing your models for efficient render times! It makes it really easy to bake your materials and use them in other applications. Lastly on a personal note, this addon really saved me a lot of heartache and allowed me to unwrap/bake the lighting data from multiple objects to a single texture. It wasn't something that would have been easy if I was doing it by hand! Well worth $10! Thank you so much for making such a great tool!
