In this tutorial I show you how to quickly bake ambient occlusion onto multiple objects at once using Maya. This is really helpful to use as an additional overlay in your texture work to add depth or dirt etc.

There are not too many tutorials on this process other than one I found from 2007 and you had to actually READ it.  (What artist wants to read words? Ewww.) So I made a video for you!
