I've spent the past week and a half working on a tool to speed up and automate the process of baking models. I call it AutoBakerrr.

Typically, depending on which bakes they bother with, an artist may spend as long as half a day (maybe more) setting up and performing bakes and setting up their textures. Since very often the bakes and the setup is the same, I decided to have a go at making a tool which made the whole process.

With the tool installed, the user can set up their bakes in almost no time at all and queue them all up to run (typically only 40 minutes). Since the settings are pretty good, the bakes are likely to be quicker too, and theres less room for human error.

There aren't many settings to get lost in, and I've included a  pretty user guide too.

It's not quite ready for public release yet, I'm going to wait for feedback from beta users to see if there are any improvements which can be made, but in the meantime, take a look at a preview here:
