Need help with my model, the normals that i just baked have theses funky artfiacts on them and i don't know why.In maya.
they look exactly the same.why the fuck are you baking?
>>522075So, That my lowest subdivision level that is about 300 has the detail that my 5k model has.
>>522070>>522071I agree with:>>522075They look the same. High poly != low poly + subdiv. I would lose those cuts on the low poly (see image) and let the normal map fake that detail.As for the artifacts looks like the renderer is confused about which face it's hitting. Are your UVs mirrored?
>>522083I can upload the meshes if you want to check? But they aren't.
>>522082>5k you are doing this wrong.
>>522083How do you mirror UVs on a cylinder? It has 1 seam down it's length, or you're doing it wrong.
>>522085OK have a look at:http://wiki.polycount.com/wiki/Normal_mapIn particular:http://wiki.polycount.com/wiki/Texture_Baking#Solving_IntersectionsShould have the info you need.>>5221212 seams: 1 on either side - split the cylinder into 2 shells. That way if you wanted a logo or something on a barrel you don't have to duplicate it in the texture - plus 2x resolution.But yes this would create 2 ugly seams, so not always ideal.
Those two models look the exact same. One might have shit load more polys but it doesn't make a difference if you don't add any extra detail to the high-poly. Add some detail to it, make sure your low is properly UV mapped and make sure your envelope covers the entire high, and that they're both inside one another.
