I render a 4800x4800 map with the same setting this time.(attachment image)

I always use this setting:

I never tried using jitter with these series. And I use it seldom...

- For simpler shapes using the matching camera type - ie spherical
camera - to create the map images and then the same image_map mapping
will be cleaner than mesh based texture baking and uv mapping.

I'm not aware this. I just want to produce mesh based texture baking. (for
general modeling shape produced with Blender)
