Topic: Splitting Synth's Groups into New Synths

When making large synths, it's common for your synthiness to be less than 100%, leading to several distinct groups of interconnected pictures within the new PhotoSynth. Once we've created a new synth with <100% synthiness, it would be great to be able to split the result into multiple synths, resulting in several synths that are 100% synthy.

Apologies for my overuse of the syllable synth :)

I completely agree, either that or allow multiple alignments when geo-tagging the synth. 

Maybe have a synth really being a collection of subsynths, a subsynth a point cloud. Then we could have the option to add a subsynth to more than one main synth, merge/replace subsynths while retaining the link to the main synth, and of course make supersynths by joining subsynths in different collections together with intersecting images.

I like where this is going, keep up the good work Microsoft!

BUMP:  I completely agree with this idea, it is frustrating to have to re-create separate synths via looking at which photos synth and which ones don't, then having to recreate using a selection visually picked out.

and for the record, Keep up the good work Microsoft.  Theres a phrase I didn't think I'd be using, but this tech had me awestruck, then it had me going out & taking photos!

Although I see the utility I would *definitely* want this to be optional. It does create the additional problem of many more collection IDs being generated than even the current amount. 

I far prefer the solution that bitplane mentions and which I originally suggested here:
