As stated, I am baking feathers onto a bird's body but the result when baked looks like pure chaos.
I thought this would work out because it worked great on the wing. The feathers baked great to the 2d plane. I attempted to replicate this problem by using one face of a cube, and I noticed that the feathers bake straight through to the back.
I don't see where to correct this either and it may be part of the problem. I thought this would work but clearly I'm missing something or baking just doesn't work like how I thought it should. Any advice would be much appreciated. If yall need more specific info just ask. (hoping one of you can identify my error with just this)
