Can’t seem to get something to synth right? Curious about what lens is best? Ask your fellow Photosynthers here.
Ran ICE and Photosynth ok on Vista.
Now updated to Win7/64 on new computer, and cannot get panos to upload.
I create the pano ok with ice but "publish to Web" brings up 'Composting for Photosynth then 'Could not publish to Photosynth'
Uninstalled and reinstalled, shut down computer and restarted,No go always the same failure.
Hi, Jeff, I use the same setup without error.
Is the 'Could not publish to Photosynth' message coming from ICE or from Photosynth?
Does your Windows desktop account name have any accented characters in it? If so, it may be a case of the file path to the TEMP folder that ICE is storing the cube map in being undecipherable when ICE tries to pass the file path to Photosynth. If this is the problem, you can change ICE's working folder to be a location that has no accented characters in the file path and all should be well again.
Also, when exactly did you experience this error? Photosynth did experience an upload error for a few hours yesterday, but it's over now. Here's more details on that front: http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=a6bad539-de7d-4a16-8c4d-b143f7d5f984&dis=ccc4a1fa-cffc-4e8e-980c-5f9323d38e8e
Thanks for suggestions.
Ice tools>options Cache was %TEMP%image composite editor cache [in use]
changed it to E:\progs\icetep
Still will not upload - same error message.
I will try and reconnect the computer with the vista installation and see if that still works.
Jeff, I just did a quick web search on the error message and found a few older discussions of it here on the forum leading to the answer that ICE is running out of RAM. Are you using the 32bit version of ICE or the 64bit version of ICE? Here's the link to 64bit ICE which can use more RAM than the 32bit version (provided you have enough installed for it use):
Here are the older discussions:
Got my vista computer running again and no problems with Ice or Photosynth.
So it is something with my win7/64 install. (also having problems with Libre Office and Abiword)
I will have to do some detailed investigation.
Thanks for you help.
