Short description of error
Cycles baking doesn't work, gives "Problem baking object map" message

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
It's not file related, fails in every test here, i also tried factory setting but gives same error. Few days ago build works.
I'm using CPU:

  • i created a new texture in Image editor,
  • added a Image node in material
  • selected the newly created blank image in the above node
  • tried baking and fails.

@lopata (lopataasdf) It is unwrapped of course.

Not specific file fails, there is the version working and the one which doesn't in the description.
Anyways here is an unwrapped cube to test:

Broken: blender-2.70-47e9057-win64-vc12
Worked: blender-2.70-a351ff7-win64-vc12

Can't confirm it marco

Testing your uploaded file.
It works.

Thanks michalis, will try a newer build as soon as available.
Just to be clear, the file I posted works for me with a older build, but not in the latest I mentioned in the report.


nightly build blender-2.70-30361a7-win64-vc12 now works.

Baking still fail on that particular build, i.e: blender-2.70-47e9057-win64-vc12. But now seems solved.

Marco: I am not sure what the result is now, is it fixed or not? :)

Hi Thomas, there is that particular build not working, but recent buildbot works, so if there is no need to investigate or others are not getting problems, let's close it I'd say.


If recent Buildbot works, let's assume this is fixed.
