    bake cycles and any other rendering engine

    hi everyone, i'm working on a script for bake cycles rendering lighting and any other render engine, it creates an orthografic camera and moves it through every polygon on the mesh , it's very slow but it produces good results, i didn't found how to convert the mesh polygons to triangles so it only works for triangle meshes ( it renders each polygon how many times as triangles has the polygon when it should render the polygon just a time)

    since it's based on the current rendering engine, it has to access to the render result image pixels, there is not a direct way for do this so it first saves the render result then reload it from disk for all polygons , so it's very inefficient, being the main problem the massive number of E/S operations

    sorry for my bad english hehesample.png

    Great idea and interesting approach! I'm sure some people will find this very useful. Cycles is a slow render engine as it is, so people are used to waiting I'm impressed

    This is actually a very cool approach to baking lightmaps. It's not very efficient but maybe it can inspire some other people to improve it further. It is truly a very exciting find, thank you so much

    I say: 'Wow! Brilliant stuff!'.
    Because, in V-Ray has that function with GI, but if you'll make it on Cycles then it will be great. So please, stay on your this idea! Best regards.
