There is a set of discussion threads in the section Bakes On Mesh Feedback in the SL Forum. If you have questions, check the posts by Alexa and Vir Linden. Also, Cathy Foil has been experimenting so she has good information. There are others that have some really bad information completely off track. They obviously haven’t been experimenting. They just want to be negative and seem to be basing opinions on what is possible from their imagining what Bakes On Mesh to be.

For those of you using Slink, check out Siddean’s SL Project Viewer – Bakes on Mesh.

Strawberry Singh has a good step-by-step on how to play with Bakes On Mesh now. If you use the Project Viewer, you’ll find it works everywhere. See Second Life Project BakesOnMesh. A video is at the end.

Strawberry thinks Appliers will be totally obsolete. But, that ignores Materials, which are not currently handled in this iteration of BoM. Strawberry mentions that.

Siddean’s article made an interesting distinction I find to be exceptionally true. Those that understand Bakes On Mesh are excited about it and looking forward to it. Those that don’t, aren’t.

Cathy Foil’s techier video is here Bakes On Mesh Introduction. The first 5 minutes is verbal explanation. After that Cathy goes to show and tell… 🙂
