iClone would crash while baking IBL at 4096x2048 and more...
Bugs:

So it would crash baking IBL at 4096x2048. Worse yet, the registry values OnlyShowDiffuse and OnlyShowSpecular would stuck on 1.

Most users would not know that, while any project opened after the crash would not properly render and displayed in view-port until values are set to 0 manually.

In addition, some texture would appear extremely dark (almost black) rendered in an IBL bake. I am sure that is not how it is supposed to be.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion:

Since the IBL bake is radically different from the normal view-port display (most of the time it is darker), it is hard to understand how to tweak the project lights, GI, shadows, Ambient for the best desired IBL baked output.

So I suggest to enable IBL bake view-mode as one of the options in Real-Time drop-down box.
I can emulate that by setting those 2 mentioned registry values to 1 and restarting iClone.
But it would be nice to have it as an option, so that users can view baked result real-time and do the necessary tweaking to the scene for the best desired baked IBL output.

Hi Molly, 

No, iClone does not crash lately on anything (and I am working past week extensively on some mid-sized project). Only crashing with IBL baking images over 2K. It works sometimes, but most of the times it crash. I just made this quick video:

Hi 4u2ges,

I have got your file, Thanks for your help.

We can't reproduce your problem. Did iClone crash when you only Bake IBL no any other operation?
