Hello, so I'm finally at the baking part of the ultimate weapon tutorial, and i can bake the first part (before ambient occlusion and thickness) but when I start baking ambient occlusion and thickness, my program freezes and doesnt come back, i've waited like 10 minutes. (even with the first bake, substance freezes, and I cant see anything, but once the bake is done, substance comes back)

Also, I've noticed through task mananger, than when baking, my processor usage goes up to %100, which is all going towards painter, is there a way I can make baking use my GPU and not CPU?

my CPU: i7 8700-k
GPU: 1080ti

Thank you!!

Hey there! :)

I've experienced freezes as well, and for me it was allways the result of not setting the Anti Aliasing back to 2x2 for AO & Thickness instead of 8x8...so just to check: Did you set this back down as well? :)
I got same GPU as you, so...that shouldn't really be the problem. After a bit of Googling I found this:

It's quite recent (April this year) and as you can see the AO & Thickness are only using CPU right now, but they are working on it to let it run on GPU as well like the other bakers.
Unfortunately we have to wait a bit as you can see, but I hope it answers your question :)

Thanks a lot for your help! I have made sure to change the anti Aliasing, but it doesnt solve the problem :/ I really hope they make it more GPU friendly soon
