    This is unbelievably good. Flawless, more than you ever asked for baking.

    One of the best baking tools for Blender! Very stable, feature rich and simple to understand. I bought it just when it came out and now, years later, with updates it has become even better!

    Would not recommend this addon to anyone. This addon is not actively cared for. There is an automatic update feature built in, but in exchange, you'll be harassed with updates a few times a month that appear to have added content, but truly is just there to create the illusion of progress. Most addons on Blender Market push updates 10 times the size with new features at the same rate, without constantly reminding you with a big red panel that there's been an update.

    One of many problems I have with this addon is that the color management settings are applied after image information has been baked in so if you alter the scene exposure in any way, the outcome is skewed, sometimes entirely white or black if your change is more than 3 exposure levels. I created a support ticket on February 3rd explaining this bug and messaged the developer multiple times after, and only got a response on March 15 after I threatened to escalate to admin. This is the response I got: "I don't consider it a bug, it's more an unimplemented feature. You have suggested a good enhancement, however, I have a long list and it's not possible to please everyone. "

    So here I am, leaving "whatever kind of review that you want to". The fact that a lot of people weren't able to download the addon from Blender Market and that problem persisted for a long time should tell you something about the developer and the attention they give to this addon.

      So... you are accusing me of updating SimpleBake too often with fixes and enhancements, and having a convenient automatic update system? You got me! I plead guilty!! What actually happened here is that you wrote to me rudely demanding a change that you (and only you) wanted, and then threw a massive tantrum when I said I'd consider it for the future. People can judge for themselves how much SimpleBake is "actively cared for" here -

    Great addon, simple to use, and quite stable. Development is quite active too. A must have!

    I would love to review the product, but it seems the Blender 3.0 download is currently missing for some reason. I hope it is fixed soon.

    Really smart addon that just makes baking... simple. The one thing that's missing for my workflow is the ability to 'mute' certain materials, i.e. telling the addon to ignore certain material slots on objects (for instance to work with leaving some materials procedural). Other than that, this addon is fantastic and saves a tonne of time and effort.

    Essential plugin for Blender if you ask me. Cheap price considering the time it saves you.

    I never managed to make a correct bak of a complex skin texture in three days, I had to spend more than ten hours there to test all the possibilities. I watched all the tutorials on youtube but each of them does not present the addon with the simplest objects which I reproduced without problem.

    I really regret my purchase.

    It's amazing how easy it makes a normally painful task into a near pleasure.

    Saved me huge amount of time. Can't describe how convienient and reliable this addon is. Worth every penny
