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.
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:
