Detailed Description

Baking functionality.

The MPxBakeEngine class is a way for users to override the viewport representation of shaders. Users can provide their own baking engine to bake advanced shading properties into a texture. This texture is used by the viewport to represent the shading properties.

Member Function Documentation

void MPxBakeEngine::setNeedTransparency ( bool  t  ) 

Set whether the bake engine needs to produce an image with transparency.

[in] t whether transparency is needed

void MPxBakeEngine::getUVRange ( MFloatArray  minUV,
MFloatArray  maxUV 

Tells Maya the UV range the baked texture should cover.

[out] minUV the minimum UV value
[out] maxUV the maximum UV value

MStatus MPxBakeEngine::bake ( const MDagPath objectPath,
const MDagPath cameraPath,
const MPlug samplePlug,
MImage result 
) [pure virtual]

Bake the texture Maya will use to approximate shading properties.

[in] objectPath the object the texture will be applied to
[in] cameraPath the camera that should be used for baking
[in] samplePlug the plug being sampled, ie baked
[out] result the texture
MS::kSuccess if a valid texture was created, MS::kFailure otherwise
