Why does it take forever to bake out any kind of texture even ones as small as 512. I left it over night on a 2048 texture size no radiosity. This morning it had only reached 10%. Any other program would do this in les then 5 minutes. am I doing something wrong or am I right in thinking it's rubbish?

Forgot to add that I'm baking one surface made of about 25000 polys (quads) with just three area lights.

It's not just you. Surface baker is a joke.

Well hopefully the new bake camera thingy in 9 will be good. Actually I'll try it tonight and see.

I've only got version 8 at work so I'm stuck with baker pile of poo, done it in max in the end, took about 4 minutes.

Fozz how are you un employed? I've seen loads of work of yours all over the place you should have people falling over each other to get you to work for them.

If you want a job in the UK I can get you one but to be honest I'd rather stay in Sweden .
