– Physically correct baked lighting. All results were compared against Mitsuba offline renderer.

– Performance: uses GPU for ray-tracing.

– Can take advantage of (but not requires) RTX hardware.

– Uses NVidia AI Denoiser to remove noise, powered by deep learning.

– Fixes common baking artifacts, such as lighting leaks and UV seams.

– Global Illumination (supports custom shaders).

– Sky lighting (HDRI or color).

– Emissive textured meshes.

– IES Lights.

– Directional, point, spot light sources.

– Materials: supports albedo, emissive, opacity.

– Can produce both complete and indirect lightmaps, or even mix both per-light.

– Can produce shadowmasks.

– Supports directional baking (bump/specular) with 4 modes: dominant direction (compatible with most shaders), Radiosity Normal Mapping, per-pixel spherical harmonics, as well as simply baking normal maps to diffuse.

– Light probes.

– Can bake 3D textures as well.

– Automatic atlas packing.

– Supports Mesh Renderers, Skinned Meshes and Terrains.

– Supports LODs.

– Supports baked prefabs.
