Do you have an idea for an awesome feature we should add… or hate the way we’re currently doing something? Share your ideas and suggestions here.
This site would benefit from having a place where inventions, rigs, props, aids, etc. can be shared. For example, I just made a turntable where the camera moves around an object. My first try with a lazy susan was 44% synthy and didn't do so hot; I made a jig and shot two projects: one came out 100% synthy and the other 98% - and both projects view well. I have full step-by-step instructions with still photos but no place to post it. I assume others have rigged helpful devices to assist with photosynthing - and would share their "invention."
The closest thing to what you're asking for is here on the forum:
Advice and Critiques: http://photosynth.net/forum.aspx?cat=ceca0f30-0f7c-4468-811a-32b623ea8563 would be an ideal showcase for a DIY thread where others could post their ideas or link to larger descriptions or examples of what can be achieved with their work.
A few years ago a previous Photosynth user like us, Jim Cseke posted a synth of his device that did what yours does. He has since deleted his account and synths, but he posted the link to his synth in the Lounge forum: http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=6b63cb81-8b57-4d5d-a978-41d5509bf59a&dis=d9c62550-52cc-4f60-a614-9046dfda1cde
