I was following along this anvil tutorial, and I was to make a normal map of the mesh I made. I had sculpted it, and was ready to bake the sculpted, hi-res mesh with the low res mesh. When I followed the directions and baked, the normal map came out strange. The blue is there, but in the center are these weird stretches, and a lot of purple in the bottom. Shown here: Stretching across the center

I am not sure as to what I have to do to fix this. I went back to sculpting and smoothed out some stuff, and it did fix half of it, but the stretching was still there. I flattened the middle of the anvil, near the base. I am not sure if it is because of my sculpting. Maybe I sculpted too deep or too much. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ There are no streches with Plane.003, It works fine. You probably used a low poly mesh with a bad UV map. $\endgroup$
