Can’t seem to get something to synth right? Curious about what lens is best? Ask your fellow Photosynthers here.

I am looking to see if a Photosynth can use/export/save a static stitch file.  On occasion I use a 3 or 5 camera mount the capture synced frames that I later stitch back together for time lapse playback at high resolutions (occasionally I have used this in a seamless mutliprojector environments).

Since the cameras are locked in place on a fixed plate, I was hoping that a single successful stitch could be used as a "template" for 100's or 1000's of stitched frames.  

I have tried a 100 frame, frame-by-frame test, but ICE seems to generate a unique stitch each time, which results in an inconsistent warping of the final field on each output. 

I can do this in PTGui, but I much prefer Microsoft ICE, and as a MS supporter, I would like to see Photosynth used for stitched frames or DSLR even video.

If you have a good stitch in ICE that you'd like to use as a template, then do the following:

- save the ICE project file, for example template.spj
- in a text editor (e.g. notepad) edit the .spj file and replace the image filenames that you used for the template with new image filenames.
- save as a different .spj, for example project2.spj
- open the new .spj in ICE, it will skip the alignment and only run composition on the new set of images
