SMAK 1.0 released!

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Sun Jan 09, 2011 9:02 am

SMAK version 1.0 is a multi-purpose 3d modeling utility. It can:

* Bake hi-res models down to lo-res with diffuse, AO and normal maps

* Bake AO maps for standalone meshes

* Load and save multiple file formats

among other things. The advantage of SMAK is that it's very fast and easy to use, and lets you preview the model as the map generates. The price is $30 and you can get it on the website:

This video demonstrates exactly how easy it is to generate maps with SMAK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw5Mt6mOmM4

I'd love to hear what you guys think about the tool, any feedback gets "fed back" into the development of the tool. Thanks!

Judging from the video this is a really handy piece of software, looks pretty impressive! I recall doing the same thing in blender and it wasn't anywhere near that easy.

I shall stray from 2D again soon and try the demo.

I think it's less powerfull than xnormal, which is a free software providing gpu AO baking.
