Baking DVC causing issues in original texture

Unsure of exactly what is causing these issues. But for whatever reason it seems that when I go through the process of baking in the dirty vertex colors my original texture goes a bit crazy and I'm not sure why. Any sort of advice would be appreciated.

here is a link to the file if you want to take a look:

    There shouldn't be any connection between the Dirty Vertex Color bake and the original wood texture...Checking your file the UVs on this particular panel are messed up causing the distortion:

  • I don't know what happened, but for some reason your UV's are all messed up:

    When re-unwrapping, everything seems to be  ok, but that would mean that you have to do the painting and DVC baking all over again...

    • Thank you for letting me know what was going on. I think I'm just gonna restart this from the beginning and make my models cleaner with the knowledge I know now.

    • I think that's a good idea, you'll be surprised at how much faster it goes the second time and how much better the result...
