Hi - I've just been tasked by my boss to build a sort of Photosynth game demo in Silverlight for Tuesday. Essentially what I need to be able to do is layer something over a Photosynth and query it to get current point location, vector of the camera view and vector of the camera up direction.

Now to the best of my knowledge there's no public Photosynth control for Silverlight yet and I haven't been able to find any details on APIs or such that might allow me to query an embedded synth to get current location and camera data (as at least if I could do something with smoke and mirrors).

I've some experience of working with Silverlight, including Kit3D which the player was based on, but I have little knowledge of Photosynth at this stage. Is there anything I can query to get this info or am I on a wild goose chase?

Just been given details of a JavaScript API so will try that.

Might be able to pull stuff of an Augmented reality program. Camera tracking, etc.  I assume the theory behind their IT and software in that field should transfer.   Good luck
