Topic: More control over Embedding a synth

Hi,
would it be possible to create two more parameters besides the slideShowPlaying and delayLoad parameters which control the starting zoom level and max/min zoom level of the synth. I would like to embed some panoramic 360 degree synths into a website but don't want two things to happen in that iframe:

1. I'd like to prevent the synth loading with a far to low zoom level which would render black unpictured parts on top and bottom of the iframe. I would prevent this by setting the max and min zoom level of the synth

2. Optionally I would like to disable the zoom behaviour at all and enable the usual scroll behaviour when the viewer spins the mouse wheel and the mouse cursor is over the synth. Is it probably possible to achieve this by CSS on the iframe?

Kind regards,
Maxim

Maxim, I'm only your fellow user and unfortunately can't answer your question. I hope the Photosynth team will. 

Just a note, though: technically this ought to have been posted in the New Feature Suggestions/Requests forum here: http://photosynth.net/forum.aspx?cat=01b6f15f-42eb-49cb-a221-ed56615e1c47

@natelawrence: Thank you for your hint. Are there any admins in this forum, who would be able to move this post into the New Feature Suggestions topic, or should I post there as well? I think I will wait for some response from the photosynth team member first.

No, there are no admins as such. 
I'd say keep it here and just remember next time.

I hope you get your answer.

It also appears that you were referring to stitched panoramas as opposed to photosynths.

Have you tried the new panorama-style photosynths in the Technical Preview yet? http://photosynth.net/preview
http://photosynth.net/preview/help (Video Tutorial, Shooting Guide, + Frequently Asked Questions here)
http://photosynth.net/preview/about (Examples of the four new photosynth subtypes here)

In the new panorama-style photosynths or 'parallax panorama' photosynths, the synth viewer stays within the photos and you don't see above or below the photography (unless you were very careless from shot to shot).

The scroll wheel is still used to zoom in and out of the source photos in the new synths, however.
Users may use the cursor keys to move through the photos (left and right for spins, parallax panos, + wall synths and up and down for walk synths.
