lostinthetriangle (Over 1 year ago)
Thankyou EdLee, must be a combination of things, I shoot the pictures in different resolutions (multishot mode drops the resolution) highest being 3648 x 2056. Photosynth then resizes the pictures. Your Court House project is amazing as well!

EdLee (Over 1 year ago)
Very nice. I was able to synth 1,395 photos @100% in 4 hours 10 minutes with lesser hardware: Dell Inspiron 1525, Intel Core 2 Duo T5800, 2GHz, 3G RAM, 32-bit Vista. What were the resolutions of your photos? Mine were VGA 640x480. See my on-going project of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

I have to say this is a very exciting synth - I have spent around 20 minutes "walking" through the church and still have not seen all the corners and details. It is really incredible what Photosynth has done with this.

Ed, I think you are right about the synther not having enough information to completely synth correctly...........

EdLee (Over 1 year ago)
Hi LiTT, (Already in the Bug section): I don't know the math or algorithms behind the synther, so PS people can tell about this theory: it IS a problem of not having enough photos. For example: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=c8063fc8-145b-4b42-936f-58ca7724b26d If you rotate the building so you are looking down at the staircase and the 2nd floor hallway from the top, you'll see they don't align with the outer walls of the building and the tunnel. I don't have the building's blueprint, but I am guessing in reality, the staircase and the hallway align perfectly with the building walls. The reason they don't in the Point Cloud is that the synther does not have enough information. In the Carter House synth, imagine if the steps are NOT fixed but are actually MOVABLE in real life. Then it's obvious how you can achieve the ghost effect. It's like the ghost points from anything that moves. If you get more photos to cover the steps, I think the ghosts will go away.

jimcseke (Over 1 year ago)
I don't know how new you are to this site, but you definetly brought out some noticeable synths. Although I am amazed with "Lana's Face"... as with any subject or scene, there are many takes on how the final synth is presented. I like to check out a lot of other synther's work, and occasionally I'll check out their favorites. I usually leave with new favorites I otherwise would not have found. The favorites I collect are either just plain beautiful and/or inspiring. For example, a beautiful colorful and interesting face synth by dariusmonsef "Head of Greg" http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=737b791a-0765-46b2-bd5e-e12afc54bfea . With his synth, you get a feeling of Greg's personality. I think it's the eyes and the beard. Each of my favorites show a hint of what is possible. If you enjoyed making your synths and hopefully you plan to make more, check out my favs and then check out my fav's favs. I hope you find favs to inspire you for your next projects.

Interesting idea. If you fold the dollar bill a little so that it can stand up on it's bottom edge, then you can synth both sides of the bill -- the point cloud will be interesting because you'll be able to "see through" both sides. :) Perhaps you can synth a mobius dollar bill. :)

Thanks for pointing me to some of you inspirational synthers. I have checked them out and have added them as favorites. I already had some of Edlee's favorited. I love his synths,and especially love his GO game synths (as obviously does everyone else). Madeeds is also there because of his vividly colorful photograhs and of course his dog elmo. TonyErnst's Curiosity Table... to name a few. Long story short, they are all beautifully done. And I know that I will find many more existing and future favorites. That's where you come in Natanael... (future synths). I can see where you are heading with your synths. Experimenting, improvising, looking for ways to improve and I think that you are one of Photosynth's biggest cheerleaders. Keep doing what you're doing, it is appreciated. P.S. When I wrote "130 photos" in these comments, I meant that I thought you had taken many more pics to get such an amazing synth. Keep on synthin' and TGIS (LOL)

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
People who really inspired/challenged me to take my synthing to another level early on are Lily, Ultrasound, EdLee, and LostInTheTriangle, among many others. In many ways so many of my synths are big sloppy experiments that never quite make it to 'polished' status, though they have the potential, so I definitely still have heaps to learn in terms of actual photography (composition, understanding my camera's settings to get beautiful exposures, etc.), taking photos specifically for easy navigation, and discovering not merely effective methods of generating impressive pointclouds, but efficient and elegant paths. By all rights I should be doing much more with description and highlights as well as they add so much to the experience. I think I could probably take lessons from you in that regard. You always spin a fascinating tale to accompany your imagery and it definitely adds to the experience. Cheers!

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
No worries. =) I happened to have shot this on a relatively cold morning and stayed out only long enough to make a crude orbit at a few different angles and heights. 130 photos sounds like a lot but it only took me nine minutes (mostly just waiting for the camera's automatic focus to catch up with my constantly shifting position) and then I was off like a flash to get back to warmer environs. If you want a great pointcloud, lots of photos is fairly much necessary at this stage of Photosynth's life, but as others have pointed out, as far as viewing the photos or making an experience which is easily navigable, lots of photos doesn't necessarily mean a better synth. I also have managed (on my Deep Wood House's South Lawn synth) to take too much coverage of one portion of the scene for the current 32-Bit synther to handle in Scene Reconstruction, so it is possible to take that approach too far. I'll let you discover where that boundary lies for yourself, though.

jimcseke (Over 1 year ago)
I just noticed only 130 photos! Wow ... I've got to rethink my approach. A real eye-opening day today. Thank you Nathanael.

Interesting building. There are about 10 photos that are dis-jointed from the main group. To get to 100% synthy with all the photos synthed, you need a few more in-between photos to help Photosynth link everything together. The Point Cloud is quite interesting, and it can be even better: but you need to wait for days with bright sunlight yet overcast weather to get all the different sides and surfaces of the building evenly lit -- it depends on the angles of the sun, so this may take many days and over different seasons. :)

Hi xRez, I generally use Topcon's PI3000 'survey station' - but for this model, Topcon ImageMaster was used. Thanks for the info about PTM. Strangely enough I was involved in a trial of it just over a week ago. I was curious to see how Photosynth would handle PTM imagery and created this model: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=d20c3944-211b-4cde-8323-42b774636ebd - pseudo time-lapse is the best way of describing the results.

Pretty nice. To get the two isolated photos synthed with the rest, you just need to take a few more "in-between" photos. Perhaps a few close-ups to make sure Photosynth can distinguish the two different designs, and also a few more "in-between" photos to connect them to the rest of that face of the building. With a few more photos, you should be able to get 100% synthy with no disjointed sets. Good luck!

Also, the shallow depth-of-field of the close-up of her face looks like for the photo, but not good for photosynth -- for better synths, you want maximum depth-of-field (infinite focus).

Nice project. The different sides of the building are very "textury" and they make for a nice synth and point cloud. With a few more photos, you should be able to synth all the disjointed sets together to make it 100% Synthy. The point cloud is pretty nice now, and if you have the time to go back and wait for different times of the day and year, when the sunlight hits all the different sides of the building (that is, 360 degrees), you can get a very nice synth and point cloud. Could you geo-tag this, too? Good luck. Thanks!

Hi ShadowDance, nicely diffused lighting for this synth. Since the statue is so long and skinny, if you rotate your camera sideways, you can get more pixels per photo of the statue.

That brick wall is pretty sweet. I'm very curious to see what is behind the opening (is it a cliff? -- then you can't synth the other side!) Also, if you can synth all way back back to the steps up. It's too bad that this cannon (like the last one) doesn't show up too nicely in the point cloud -- perhaps if you can temporarily coat it with something that synths well? Like sand, or some kind of chalk powder (something that you can completely wash off without affecting the cannon in anyway...)?

Hi BP, (Already in the Bug section): I don't know the math or algorithms behind the synther, so PS people can tell about this theory: it IS a problem of not having enough photos.

EdLee (Over 1 year ago)
madeeds, the tunnel's slope may not be accurate because photosynth does not have enough infomation. For example: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=c8063fc8-145b-4b42-936f-58ca7724b26d If you rotate the Courthouse so you are looking down at the staircase and the 2nd floor hallway from the top, you'll see they don't align with the outer walls of the building and the tunnel. I don't have the building's blueprint, but I am guessing in reality, the staircase and the hallway align perfectly with the building walls. The reason they don't in the Point Cloud is that the synther does not have enough information, same as with the tunnel here. So for example, if there is one photo that simultaneously captures a Courthouse exterior wall AND the interior staircase; or, for this synth, one photo that simultaneously captures the Adam Stephen House's roof AND the bottom of the tunnel, then the tunnel's slope may be more accurate.

The point cloud would be better with more photos and if there were no movements at all, which is a bit of work. :) http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=1453eec2-268e-45a4-bf73-26bfa2560367 http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=2c067be1-6bef-4549-a103-fd0b4b4708a7

Pretty nice. Try this outdoors with very bright sunlight but overcast or slightly cloudy -- uniformly diffused bright light with no harsh shadows anywhere: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=9b66eabf-4f39-4653-a710-31c497a2a1df The 3 percent or 13 photos that didn't synth were all fuzzy (camera moving) or disconnected with the rest of the photos (need a few more "in-between" photos): http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=1453eec2-268e-45a4-bf73-26bfa2560367

Turned out really well. Nice work. (I think less harsh light might make it turn out even better.)

Wow, does Photosynth know about and adjust for very wide-angle lenses or very distorted images?!

Hi scott, congratulations (I hope... :) It is very tricky to photograph diamonds and jewelry well. The light sources and camera angles seem to be critical. Check out debeers.com. Also, if you google "how to photograph diamonds": http://www.tabletopstudio.com/documents/jewelry_photography.htm
