Hey guys, really simple question here that may seem obvious but I just want to be certain I'm doing things correctly. I'm making a hard-surface model (It's a mech) and my workflow was to make the mid-poly, duplicate, add support loops and then turbosmooth the highpoly.
Now for the low poly should I stitch all the meshes together or can they remain separate? And I would stitch them before baking correct? I'm wondering how to bake the pieces separately if I combine the low poly is essentially the jist of my question. My teacher mentioned that the model has to be airtight if it's to be game-ready.
Thanks in advance!
