Topic: Is the default first shot of any Spin that isn't a full orbit always the center of the arc?

I've noticed that in Spins where it is not possible to move all the way around an object that you usually load into the synth pretty nearly exactly in the center of the arc of photos.

Presumably you actually find the center of the smoothed path and then identify the closest camera position to that point.

Is there any more to it than that?

It seems a pretty logical assumption. I was just curious as to the thought process.

Perhaps on the same note, do you always begin full orbit spins with the first photo in the sequence?
If so, presumably this is because you want to begin the loop from the beginning and assume that we usually begin from the front.
