Baking Normals with Ray Casting


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get the process in this video to work:


Here's a screenshot of the lo-poly and hi-poly objects I'm trying to bake to normals




I followed all the instructions, but I keep getting weird aberrations. I even tried a cage mesh to make sure there is no intersecting geometry, but still no dice. The first render is the hi-poly version, the second is the lo-poly mesh with the baked normal map.
