@Nathaniel Thanks for you comments. We are glad you like our work. As you say it looks simple, but the complexity of our work (if it is one) is not in the way a single picture is taken ... but in the amount of pictures we take and the love we put in every shot in order to connect them and create 100% synths with amazing point clouds. It is just a matter of passion and patience. Have you seen our other Photosynths?

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
This is just so well done. I love how simple your method of shooting is and appreciate how patient you must be to pull it off. Happily, I think your technique could be taught to just about anyone. Thank you, as always, for the elegant subjects, clean images, and crisp point cloud.

Nice, DaHedd. If you can control the lighting, or, if you can wait for an overcast or cloudy but very bright day, you can get rid of the harsh shadow and get the rings rested smoothly and softly against the background. :)

Tnx, madeeds. I certainly appreciate ur input, especially as I'm staring up the learning curve... n luvin it!:) Just finished 'Palenque Ruins" #3. It's about as good as it's gonna get w/ what I have. Pretty satisfied for first big go-round. One long panorama did fail and get discarded, tho:( Perhaps it was rejected due to size (7442x2296, 4.3MB), aspect ratio (particularly long), or otherwise Did get a smaller stitched pan to synth in (out of Photoshop: 4987x2085, 3.6MB, wide aspect ratio, but not as wide). FYI, I found the Get Satisfaction forum, including the run cmd for the log file. interestin n v helpful, especially to kno if the process crashed or not, since i don't really kno what is "normal" as i am ignorant at this time. Tnx again. I'll keep hackin away:)...

madeeds (Over 1 year ago)
@swami: I'm on the product team, so I have a little more info than most about how Photosynth works ;-) We do want to encourage people to hack Photosynth. Fiddler is a great tool for seeing what our apps send back and forth to the server. Also, check out the Photosynther directory under %TMP%. This is where the log files from the synther go. Stare at it a bit and I bet you'll quickly figure out what 95% of it means. As for automating the UI, I'm just using user32.dll to read our window form components and send messages. I hope this inspires you to do some hacking yourself!

swami_worldtraveler (Over 1 year ago)
Just saw ur reply from 4 days ago. Sorry for the delay. Still coming up to speed on the Synth community forum, etc. I really appreciate ur insight and experience. Clumps, I get it now:) Where can I find more info about clumps, log files, programming for Photosynth, etc.? Is it scripted? Sounds like there is a lot of power under the hood. R ur programs available for download, trial, or purchase? Perhaps there's a community of Photosynth hackers. So, the files get uploaded to the Photosynth server. Your utility can locate them. If I upload sum pix and want to make other synths (perhaps adding or removing sum pix), how do I specify which ones to use? Don't want/need to upload pix that r already on the server, of course. Tnx again for ur help. This is very exciting. I eat this stuff up:)

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.

Hi happy cathedrals' synthers! So I synthed my simple cathedral, pretty little from Dijon (Burgundy) http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=7a5ef951-d15b-4d83-839c-5013b01e4726 ; I hope you like it. As you can see it was on a very sunny day, and I feared about shadows ot overlighted places, but Photosynth is quite good for stitching. I could take pictures on avery 4 sides by stepping into private gardens or yards; so one side was in the shadow and colours are not so warm, but it doesn't matter so much. I agree there are no statues here, or sun would have been a problem; I agree with EdLee you better use a good stalbilizer (all cameras have one now) or a tripod and try to take your breath; and don't focus too much about the point cloud ;-)))

Nicely done, also a great point cloud! I wondered how stained glass windows would synth. How did you manage to take the pictures during the service without having too many "bad looks"?

"found homeless man........" entry in guest book! It almost worked, and yes it does look small. Thanks though, very interesting.

Pity about the pictures that did not "synth" good cloud point on the first set though.

Nice try, try to overlap the photos a bit more so they will synth together.

These photos were taken before the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004...it's a much sunnier place now.

Boston looks a little gray.
