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.

Tom, these were all taken from land. It's a rather large lake so there's plenty of shoreline to cover. There's never been a better time to visit Iceland than right now with the Kronur so devalued. It was REALLY expensive when I went back in 2004, especialy for gas.

Was all this done from shore? Or were you out on the water? This covers a lot of ground! I love the part about the picture being hung upside-down. Those are some remarkably strong reflections!

King Arthur VS Red-Dragon

Marvin (Over 1 year ago)
I don't think it's as simple as the background issue. Photosynth needs matching feature points in order to connect things. Instead of "doing it at night", what if you added a white sky to everything and tried to "bind" shots looking up (from the legs of the dragon/knight). That way the background would realistically be white?

Pierrot21 (Over 1 year ago)
Hi! I didn't understand 3 vs 2 pictures (I know 'to bind' but usually you bind only 2 pictures) In this other synth the big difference is that there is no (same) background: white background for the object and white sky. Then he made a good job by puting the top of the roof into the white background. I don't think it's possible to calculate a background in such a textured street as mine. But you give me the idea to introduce the knight into a dark street at night ...

Marvin (Over 1 year ago)
A good example of this is: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=ebf3e9ad-c0f5-43a0-b3da-fc3c689b62cc Where he managed to get the pointcloud of the object into the scene.

Marvin (Over 1 year ago)
Hi Pierrot. I used the word "bind" because that's what you used in a previous comment. Basically, if you look at the pointcloud, you'll find that while each of the knight and dragon have their own (very nice) pointcloud. However, you never see their pointclouds combined. If you want both the dragon and the knight in the same pointcloud, you'll need more than one picture of them in the combined scene (at least 3)

Pierrot21 (Over 1 year ago)
Thanks for your advice I can understand #1 and maybe I'll do it; but I don't understand #2 bindind 3 pictures, do you mean a zoom effect?

Hi Schn828, Thank you for your comment on my Santa Barbara Courthouse synth 2 weeks ago: "You have done an amazing job on this. Just out of curiosity, how long did it take to synth this? Do you ever run into the 'not enough memory' problem? Keep it up." Because of the 20G storage limit, I have to remove older synths to make room for new ones. Here is the newest Courthouse synth, thank you: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=b2b831fc-4b57-4884-bb2d-719af556e1d9

Thanks guys. Now lets not go throwing "perfect" around, I still need to take pictures of the area around the statue. It is an actual James Joyce poem that surrounds the statue. My goal is to take good enough pictures so that one is able to read it in synth. Also his cane does not show up at all in the point cloud. Too thin? Also cool fact: The statue base doubles as a fountain, but I have never seen it run before. Again thanks for the feedback! This is the easiest of all my synths to create because all I did was walk along the perimeter with my finger on the trigger.

I'm currently synthing a version with only 61 photos that were the wider angle shots. Thankfully since it decided only 2 of the photos were new it was relatively quick to do. Now I know it can reuse photos without uploading them I may experiment more. You can see the simpler version here: http://tinyurl.com/ahwrj3 That said you should be able to play with the point cloud on this. There are several toroidal rings to manipulate at various points, mainly at the corners, and you can always use a combination of the mouse and w/a/s/d to view it. Though I admit it's not as simple as the one main ring on the simpler version.

that you’re able to zoom in and see 4000-6000 year old tooling marks just enhances the experience immeasurably. Photosynth is also quite useful as an online Powerpoint Presentation, but with zoom as demonstrated here: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=4d2b1bf3-825f-499c-9392-9791d4e0decc The fact that you can see the rock art in different lighting conditions on the same synth is fantastic too (oblique lighting is best). I could go on about potential for heritage, but I best stop now Rich

PGRic (Over 1 year ago)
Hello K, firstly apologies to Artnowex for cluttering up his comments page & then to you all for waffling on a bit: I’m not quite sure what you mean by coverage, but if your talking about coverage with photography, then you’re not going to improve on the PS Photography Guide. Even though our project http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/era/ has pushed the boundaries for recording rock art using photogrammetry, the photography element is still fairly complex - having to think about each shot as a pair, optimal ratios between subject, and movement between base imagery + calibration etc it can be bloody awkward… On Photosynth = take you camera, take a shot, move slightly….wonderful. Admittedly, you’re not going to achieve the millimetre and sub-millimetre accuracies of photogrammetry and laser-scanning, but Photosynth certainly fulfils so many other needs, some of which you’ve stated. One of the biggest advantages is – surprise - the zooming capabilities, the fact t

K (Over 1 year ago)
PGRic that sounds really interesting. I'd seen a couple of your synths but hadn't read your profile. Maybe you can give us all some tips on how to get great coverage. Have you found Photosynth to be useful in recording rock art? I think it would shine at capturing the surroundings so you could see everything from the field level to the macro shots of the rock itself. Photosynth does compute the actual camera position so in theory we could glean the shooting distance from data we already have. We're not doing that now though so I guess it doesn't answer your question.

PGRic (Over 1 year ago)
K, it looks ammonite-ish. It would be interesting to know about focal distance given the numbers of photographs & point cloud density. For the past few years I've been involved in a volunteer project that helped develop close range photogrammetric techniques for recording prehistoric rock art. We could regularly turn out accuracies of 2mm surfaces with little data noise (1 – 1.5 metre focal distance), but a few volunteers pushed the camera calibration by getting really close (25cm) & as a result 0.5mm mesh were achieved. Worth a few tests me thinks...off I trot to find the camera :)

K (Over 1 year ago)
Good question PGRic - what's the scale of this item? and what is it? by the way, if you rotate the images before synthing they'll look better in 2D mode.

Wow. One of the most beautiful point clouds I've seen. Looks good in Silverlight too: http://photosynth.net/silverlight/photosynth.aspx?cid=71dc881d-8d9c-44ec-ba6b-72c680e6d812

this is quite remarkable - two distinct point clouds and a combined point cloud...

Great point cloud on the Churchill statue, and the two "corn-cobs".

Plain photos of these beautiful pieces would not do them justice, thanks for sharing David!

this is a really interesting subject and it made a great synth. The textures and colors work really well.

Yes I did it more simple: walking from the doo to front and then turning back, with some pictures on the sides (to get the glasses in the transept) I corrected a few picures too: the walls around the windows were to dark, and the walls around the gate were too white (then I got this bad blue colour). The most important I think is that they were less columns / pillars to fool the synther

sorry! you are right! I am however interested to know why this one synthed better than the other one? I tried to cut down the numbe rof photos on the Cologne cathedral and re-run the synth and it failed badly..did you retake these with different settings?

I unfortunately did not look at the other one - but this one has great balance

100 pictures less than before and working much better!

I'm not sure we need light: if there is too much sun, you have big black shadows

Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
Pierrot, this is only achievable with very good light with so few pictures I think on a relatively small building - if you look at the following: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=3f5e1a76-99f2-4885-ba37-eeacfb07d686 and http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=3f5e1a76-99f2-4885-ba37-eeacfb07d686 you will see with relatively few photos on a medium sized building the point clouds are not too bad. This was not the case with a bulding of the immense proportions of the Cologne cathedral on a fairly dark cold day...with point and shoot camera.

the point cloud is really interesting in the fully synthed parts
