I just got LW8 today so I'm exploring it. In Modeler on the Map tab there is a button I'm unfamiliar with: Normal Baker

What does it do and what is it used for? I looked it up in the inline help but I'm still unclear.



"Normal Baker (Map > General: More > Normalize Map)

Normal Baker will store the (normalized) point normal for each vertex as three numbers into a VMAP called PNT_NORMALS. The values, starting with the first, represent the X, Y and Z directions of the vertex's normal."
