Normals won't bake for me?
Hi I'm new here and having trouble making my normal map.
Ok so i'm experimenting with making normal maps so I've made a basic bridge with just some planks and i'm wanting to bake them onto the low poly mesh, which is a standard flat rectangle.
I've followed this guys tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-hoCUjn1wA which seemed very straight forward. however when i click generate maps it just renders out a flat purple plain with no detail from the high poly mesh. the "high" poly mesh is actually quite low poly, but i just wanted to do something simple to make sure it works well for me but so far it hasn't. I've uploaded an image of my result when trying to create the normal map.
Any help would be really appreciated.
