Unigine::BakeLighting Class

Header: #include <UnigineRender.h>

This class allows you to bake lighting.

Warning
Backward compatibility for this class is not guaranteed! Although it is exposed to public API, it is mainly intended for internal use (inside UnigineEditor). If you use it, you do this at your own risk.

BakeLighting Class

Enums

LIGHTMAP_QUALITY#

Light baking quality preset.
NameDescription
LIGHTMAP_QUALITY_DRAFT = 0Ultra baking quality. Provides the highest iterativity with the lowest sampling quality and number of rays.
LIGHTMAP_QUALITY_LOW = 1Ultra baking quality. Provides low sampling quality and number of light rays.
LIGHTMAP_QUALITY_MEDIUM = 2Ultra baking quality. Corresponds to stable quality level which is good for most cases.
LIGHTMAP_QUALITY_HIGH = 3Ultra baking quality. Corresponds to high sampling quality and number of light rays simulated intended for release production.
LIGHTMAP_QUALITY_ULTRA = 4Ultra baking quality. Might be useful to get rid of even small inconsistencies. Intended for the release production.

Starts the process of light baking for all voxel and environment probes, shadow baking for light sources in static light mode and lightmaps baking for surfaces of Mesh Static objects in the given list.

Arguments

  • const Vector< Ptr<LightVoxelProbe> > & voxel_lights - List of voxel probes for which the process of light baking is to be performed. The order of nodes added for baking is not important.

  • const Vector< Ptr<Light> > & shadow_lights - List of light sources in static light mode for which the process of shadow baking is to be performed. The order of lights added for baking is not important.
  • const Vector< Ptr<ObjectMeshStatic> > & objects - List of Mesh Static objects for which the process of lightmaps baking is to be performed.
  • const Vector< int > & surfaces - List of surfaces of Mesh Static objects for which the process of lightmaps baking is to be performed.
    Notice
    The number of objects and surfaces added for baking must be equal.

  • bool env_probes - 1 to enable light baking for environment probes; otherwise, 0.
  • bool shadow - 1 to enable shadow baking for light sources in static light mode; otherwise, 0.
  • bool lightmap - 1 to enable lightmaps baking for surfaces of Mesh Static objects; otherwise, 0.

bool isBaking ( ) const#

Returns a value indicating if the process of baking is being performed at the moment.

int getBounces ( ) const#

Console: bake_lighting_bounces
Returns number of all bounces.

Return value

Number of bounces.

int getProgress ( ) const#

Returns overall progress of light baking.
Notice
If the process of baking is not being performed at the moment, 0 is returned.

Return value

Overall baking progress, in percents.

int getProgressBounce ( ) const#

Returns a value showing progress of calculating current bounce.

Return value

Bounce calculating progress, in percents.

float getVoxelSizeMultiplier ( ) const#

Console: bake_lighting_voxel_size_multiplier
Returns the value of the voxel size multiplier parameter. By default, it is equal to 1.0f.

Return value

Voxel size multiplier.

void setBounces ( int bounces ) #

Sets number of bounces.

Arguments

  • int bounces - Number of bounces within the [1, 32] range. The default value is 1.

int getProgressLight ( ) const#

Returns progress of light baking for the current LightVoxelProbe at the moment.

Return value

LightVoxelProbe progress, in percents.

float getTimer ( ) const#

Returns the time elapsed from the start of the process of baking.

Return value

Elapsed time, in seconds.

void setVoxelSizeMultiplier ( float multiplier ) #

Console: bake_lighting_voxel_size_multiplier
Sets the value of the voxel size multiplier parameter.

Arguments

  • float multiplier - Voxel size multiplier within the [0.0f, 8.0f] range. The default value is 1.

void stop ( bool save_results = false ) #

Console: bake_lighting_stop
Interrupts the process of light baking, if it is in performing state.

Arguments

  • bool save_results - 1 to save the obtained result; 0 to restore the previous content.

Ptr<Light> getCurrentLight ( ) const#

Returns an instance of the LightVoxelProbe being calculated at the moment.

Return value

Current LightVoxelProbe.

void addReadOnlyTexture ( const UGUID & guid ) #

Adds a read-only texture with the specified GUID.

Arguments

  • const UGUID & guid - GUID of the read-only texture to be added.

void removeReadOnlyTexture ( const UGUID & guid ) #

Removes the read-only texture with the specified GUID.

Arguments

  • const UGUID & guid - GUID of the read-only texture to be removed.

void setSamplesPerFrame ( int frame ) #

Console: bake_lighting_samples_per_frame
Sets number of voxels for voxel probes and samples for environment probes, light sources and surfaces computed and visualized per single frame.

Arguments

  • int frame - Number of samples per frame within the [1, 500] range. The default value is 1.
    Notice
    High values cause longer user interface response.
