The Lightmapper


The Lightmapper is an addon for Blender that implements lightmapping and denoising capabilities for global illumination texture baking with support for 32-bit HDR Lightmaps. Baking is done through Cycles, and includes automatic material setup, automatic UV setup, encoding options, format options and advanced postprocess filtering. The setup is object-centric, meaning that you can customize the settings for each individual object, providing you with the easiest and most versatile lightmapping solution for Blender.
