Surface Baking Martha Stewart

Hey out there to anyone who takes a look. I'm just a frustrated student animater who needs some tips on surface baking. Those atlas maps can be so tricky and I keep getting seams in my renderings after everything is baked. I'm going to attempt to bake a whole character for animation, so...
any advice? is this darn near impossible? Does anyone know a better way
I'll post some pics of my problems when I get home

thanks for any advice,
anna

Bake an ENTIRE character??

Hmmm... I don't know how well that will work....
By the way, Atlas isn't a very good option for characters

Why do you want to bake the surfaces, by the way? To speed up rendering?

I use vertex baking. Apply surface baker to one of your surfaces, change it to object instead of texture, uncheck color and diffuse, and bake away....

Yeah, it takes about a million years to render global illumination on my computer, and the look I'm going for requires it. Here is the playground with baked surfaces. looks ok from far back, but lots of black seams up close
