For what it's worth, Ed, I'm glad you went with the full resolution photos on this one. When Photosynth introduces dense reconstruction this synth will shine all the more. If you know someone who has a computer with obscene amounts of RAM, you should try the original photos in Yasutaka Furukawa's PMVS2 by using Henri Astre's PhotosynthToolkit. If you don't have the originals anymore, you can download original resolution copies of the photos with Henri's PhotosynthTileDownloader.

You should set this so that the point cloud shows first

Spectacular!

eah, the game is called Go (in English), which is shortened from the Japanese name Igo(囲碁), which is borrowed from the Chinese name Wei-qi(圍棋 or 围棋). :)

wow, i hope to understand the software as well, half as well would satisfy me at this point - the game is a chinese game said to be the most difficult (name escapes me)

Yes, a nice combination of techniques, and interesting commentary on different levels.

Thanks Ken, the reason is I planned to photosynth a large area together. So I'm interested in how far I can push the technology before I encounter issues.

I was able to synth more than 1700 photos on a borrowed 8 core machine with 8gb of ram. I wouldn't recommend it though, we don't test Photosynth to that scale normally and it usually doesn't improve the experience much to go above 500. a wider lens always helps since you can get more overlap per photo.

EdLee (Over 1 year ago)
Hi Darren, yes. The total size of the photos is under 285M (very small). Most of the photos are low resolution, at 640x480. About 22 photos are higher resolutions at around 3000x2000 or less (about 60M). My highest synthed photo number was 1,499. I have others over 1,400: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=c8063fc8-145b-4b42-936f-58ca7724b26d Maybe you want to ask Ken at Photosynth who had 1,713 photos here: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=a2c8398d-1d5d-4c6b-b36a-51d9e2e222b6 Good luck!

The.Rev (Over 1 year ago)
Can you tell me the size of the pictures you uploaded here? I've had issues with having 1000 pictures. I think the size(over 2gb) could have been the issue. Maybe you can help me!

K (Over 1 year ago)
Nicely done. Can you add a geotag so we can find this on the map?

You captured some wonderful light here. The contrast between the bright sunlit trees and roofs and the dark smoke behind them is truly something special. Well done!

Thank you, all. Hi Darius, thank you for adding the Highlights feature. That's a very good idea: mark the key frames and not the in-betweeners. :) I look forward to you guys improving Silverlight's Point Cloud performance, quality, and halos to match or even exceed the Direct3D viewer's. This Courthouse is still work in progress... I need 64-bit Windows, lots more RAM, much faster CPU, and a much faster connection for uploads! :(

You are a perfectionist - very very good*

dariusmonsef (Over 1 year ago)
Thanks for adding the highlights... much easier to get around this giant synth now :)

Superfurry (Over 1 year ago)
WOW !!!!

UnTamedTraveller (Over 1 year ago)
Very nicely shot! After seeing a few of these PhotoSynths now though, I can't help feeling that the one thing that is missing of course is a SOUNDTRACK. Maybe because of my background in movies. Yeah, I know, though -- the copyright problems... Okay, I'll hum....
