Baking[edit]

Baking is the process of taking a high poly mesh and copying its information into a shader which is being used to create a normal map. This way, a mesh can be rendered with high surface information (good level of detail) but only using very few vertices (points) so the engine can render it at good performance. The normal map appears to be a 3d detail but is actually a surface.
