    It would be great to have built-in normal map baking. The normal map would be calculated from a high poly model (>100M), mapped on a simplified low poly model (<1M). UV unwrapping would be shared between the diffuse and the normal.

    Anything like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normal_mapping ?

    Yeah exactly. Even just normal maps would be beneficial. It's difficult to get any baking software to accept giant meshes... And to decimate a mesh before even baking it is less than ideal.

    Amen. High on the list, indeed.

    Noticed in https://www.facebook.com/groups/CapturingRealityArena :

    "For nicer rendering in Sketchfab: export high res mesh, simplify and texture, load high and low res mesh into XNormal and create normal, ambient occlusion and/or cavity maps. I usually upload to Sketchfab while XNormal is doing its thing. Tweak the 3D settings in Sketchfab and then load the extra maps when they're ready."

    Google XNormal - "is a free tool to bake texture maps ( like normal maps and ambient occlusion )"

    Don't know if this helps - way beyond me!
