I have connected all of my objects to a single object, giving me a single model with 3,062,829 polygons and 25 textures. I click on Objects > Bake Object…
My settings are Single Texture (checked), Replace Objects (checked), Supersampling 0, Pixel Border 2, Width 1024, Height 1024, Format PNG, Color Depth 8 bits per channel, and I’m saving it to my local drive.
When I click Bake, it takes forever. I stopped the process after 2 hours and received a “Not enough memory” warning. In the status monitor in the lower left, the green bar gets about 25% done and it says “Remapping groups…” and nothing else happens.
My computer is a Mac Pro 2013 with 64 GB memory and an Intel Xeon X5 2.7 GHz 12-core processor.
I’m using C4D R18.057 Studio (Build RB203954).
Is this amount of time normal, or should it be going faster but there’s some kind of error happening?
