enter image description herehi ive just recently installed version 2.73a and i am trying to bake my normal maps. I am doing it the same as i have in previous versions but now i keep getting the same error, as circle on attached picture. Can anyone help me with this or direct me to a current tutorial on baking normals?


According to your screenshot you're using cycles, the workflow is different.

In Object Mode

  • Select your object RMB
  • Add an image texture node with the image selected.
  • Press Bake

enter image description here

To bake from one object to another select two objects and tick the Select to Active option.
