Right workflow for baking a multi-object model where not all objects have a highres version?

When creating e.g. models for games, it is sometimes the case that some of the mesh objects which comprise the model as a whole need and have a high res version, but some not.

Can this be handled in a single "pass" by citing the _high objects in the High Definition Meshes list, but then also turning ON Use Low Poly Mesh as High Poly Mesh?

 

I'm hoping to convey the multi-mesh object model via .FBX.

Hi @tib_assetcreator,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

As for the naming convention, keep it consistent for all your objects and this shouldn't be an issue.

 

I hope this was helpful and have a nice day,

Thanks for the reply, Cyril. I don't think the documentation clearly spells out these implicit "rules", hence my having to post to try to get clarification: you might review the docs and see if you agree they could be clearer...
