Jumping on the hype train about Blender 2.8 and while it's looking nice, getting to grips with new software is always hard.

  • Static Batching - One material per Mesh and mark meshes as static.
  • Bake Lighting - Per-pixel lights break batches.
  • Occlusion Culling - Don't draw stuff you can't see.
  • If Umbra fails build custom occlusion engine - Interiors work better with a custom portal engine.
  • Oculus Go can handle large textures - 4096x4096

Adding SSH Key to Bitbucket from Windows

Here is a quick cheat sheet on how to add a proper ssh key for Sourcetree / Bitbucket from a Windows system with the PuTTY Key Generator.

The process is not complicated by any means, but getting things mixed up simply results in Bitbucket or Sourcetree rejecting the key, making tracking down the problem more difficult than it should be.

Steps are:

  1. Press Generate to create the key.
  2. Press Save private key to save the private key to disk.
  3. Copy the public key from the text area box above into the clipboard.
  4. Paste the public key into the Bitbucket > Settings > SSH Keys section on the website.
