I am baking a normal map in Cycles and keep getting strange results, I do not know what am I doing wrong.

I tried baking in Cycles in tangent and object space, tried baking in BI in tangent and Object space. The resulting map looks OK as far as I can tell, but I keep getting either completely or partially black render.

I tried all possible space options in Cycles material normal map node. What am I missing?

  • $\begingroup$ no, you just overexposure objects. $\endgroup$ – Crantisz Sep 18 '18 at 14:33
