Got my hands on a better camera. I'm attempting to do things that only I would really want synthed, but if others like it, that's cool too.

My focus is to only create 100% synths, or close to it. (isn't everyone here?) I'm also aiming to increase amount of photos taken as well as their quality. So far, too much is blurry. Will I get better?

That's a beauty of a pointcloud, too.

Aye, great storytelling!

Love it. Specially the 16 drunk Polish guys!

The point cloud on this is great, really shows the texture and nice to dive under the sand.

I experimented a bit with the possibility of doing such a synth, but I found that regular food dye in water can't work. It spreads out way too fast, and if you let it sit for a bit to calm down, it mostly just keeps spreading slowly until it's evenly dispersed. The only thing I can thing of that might help is using some kind of thicker more viscous liquid, but I have nothing like that to experiment with, and nothing in particular comes to mind. It is certainly a wonderful idea. If only we could find a chemist of some sort that might help us out with the prep work.

Photosynth liked the serviette. :) Beautiful shots of the tea, by the way. I love photography of liquid. I keep wanting to see someone synth dye that's been dropped into a container of water/colourless fluid. The way that it splashes outward when first dropped in and then hangs, largely in stasis, seems perfect to synth and like it would yield a fantastic point cloud. I'm thinking something like this ( http://vonvonz.deviantart.com/art/h2o-Color-Dance-5633618 ) in point cloud form.

Thanks for the suggestion. I see what you mean by moving via the highlights. It's not something that I usually try, but I can see how it can be appealing. I usually view synths with the old viewer since it shows the point cloud better, but unfortunately the highlights don't carry over.

Spectacular -- thanks very much for sharing this and your thinking about the challenges. It would be very cool if you could give us a few highlights -- especially one to pull people all the way down the stairs. Thanks again.

Congratulations! We chose this synth to be featured on the front page of the site on August 13th, 2009. It will stay featured over the weekend.

it's nice to see someone embracing really long paths

Hey, props to you for doing this! As far as moving through the photos and having to 'turn' to go forward or only being able to make the trip one way, check out the full-stop/period key [.] to move forward through the photos in the order you took them and the comma key [,] to move backwards. When used in a 100% synthy synth these keys can be your best friend. When used in a synth that's broken up into a bunch of different groups it's usually a bad idea to use them because you may be jumping back and forth between groups of photos and never experiencing the longest string of connected photos in succession. It's true that using the comma key to step backwards isn't the same as if you had taken photos facing the other way, but it'll still take you back along the path. Thanks for sharing with us!

Thanks for the explanation. It's quite eye-opening~
