Mightybake is a cross-platform and very straightforward piece of software that allows you to swiftly and effortlessly create texture maps for your games or other 3D projects.
Comes with support for the most widely-used 3D engines
Before we begin, you should be aware of the fact that this app only works on computers with performance-orientate GPUs, namely those that come with support for OpenGL 3.0 or higher.
To start off with, you need to know that this competent texture map baker supports high and low-resolution poly meshes, as well as envelopes, with the following formats FBX, OBJ and FBX.
Things are also looking good in the supported engines department with Maya Viewport 2.0, Unreal 3, Unreal 4, Unreal, Unity 3, Unity 4 and Source being present on the list.
Easy to install and even easier to get along with
Mightybake can be deployed on your computer with the least amount of effort on your behalf, mainly thanks to a no-frills installer. Upon launching the app, you are met by a modern-looking, black-themed user interface that stacks all the features right on display.
Working with this app is exactly as its interface might suggest, quite easy. In the first part, simply load the high and low poly meshes, the envelope and then choose the map settings.
To finalize the baking process, tweak the output settings and hit the ‘BAKE IT’ button from the lower part of the main window. It is at this point that we should mention that the output images can be either 8 or 16-bit TIFF, PNG and EXR formats.
Well equipped to handle powerful texture map baking
Of course, Mightybake is the type of application where all the magic happens under the hood, without you even knowing it. Therefore, it would be a shame not go through some of the specs and features that make this app shine.
For example, the app’s engine is well-equipped to handle fast texture baking processes, using whatever number of CPUs your computer disposes of to produce high-quality 8192×8192, 16-bits resulting maps.
In addition, the app comes with support for multiple UV tile baking, super-sampling up to 8×8 and gaussian blur up to 8 pixels.
Render complex texture maps with the help of this reliable app
Evidently, the main ‘selling point’ for this app is its ability to bake high-quality texture maps for some of the most widely-used 3D engines without forcing you to undergo complicated procedures in order to do so and without having to rely on third-party apps or plugins.
Keeping in mind everything that has been said above, Mightybake is probably one of the most efficient and most user-friendly software solutions for rendering high-quality texture maps for your games or other 3D projects.
