I have a UV map where some faces overlap and some don't. The overlapping faces are overlapped on purpose.

Now, I want to do an occlusion bake on the non overlapping faces, but it seems to always bake the whole object.

Is there a way to only bake the faces I have selected?

Just place the unwanted faces outside the UV map before baking.

I don't know of any ways you can bake just certain faces. But, you can bake the entire object and create a separate material for the baked part. Then assign it to just the faces you want baked and leave the other faces with their materials, or give them a separate bake.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, no is the direct and right answer to my question. You cant bake only selected faces. But the solution was very simple... $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 5, 2014 at 2:26
