The Bake command combines an object's textures and decals into a single image file and assigns that image as object's texture.


  1. Place textures and decals on an object.
  2. Bake the object.
    The object's textures and decals are combined into one image.

    This image is then assigned to a new material that material is assigned to the object using surface mapping.
    All the decals are removed from the object. As a result the object looks much like before.

The BakeMapping command creates a new texture image by mapping a texture from a UV mesh to another.

The texture of fruits is baked between two UV meshes of the same object.


  1. Select an object.

    The object must contain at least two mapping channels.

  2. Enter the number of the source mapping channel.

  3. Enter the number of the target mapping channel.

  4. Set the options for the image to save.

Command-line options

Fill pixels around <d>

The extra pixels surrounding the source UV mesh to be included in the baked texture.

Save an Image options


The dimensions of the baked image.


Maintains the ratio between the width and height.

Include alpha channel

Includes transparent pixels in the baked image.

Preset dimensions

Saves the baked image with one of the preset dimensions.
