-\\ +Parts of the first BakeRender scene, created in 2005. It used 510 textures (one per surface) reduced to 66 maps (one per object) by using Rhino's packed texture coordinates for Polysurfaces. A default gamma of 1.0 was used for baking to export the final scene into a famous game editor. Most of the materials are free darktree shaders. Click on the image for a larger version.
