Get all your questions answered about our latest Photosynth Technical Preview.
Do you plan to support traditional Share Links where I am able to link to a specific view of a synth?
Link to a specific image in a synth
Link to zoomed in on a particular portion of an image in a synth
Link to a particular virtual camera view of the synth in global camera view
Link includes whether map is turned on or not
Yes to linking to a specific image in a synth. This was part of the plan for the preview, but didn't quite make it. It's still on the drawing board.
Link to a zoom-ed area would be a natural when we work on highlights, which are also on the list.
Links directly into global camera are less likely.
Links re the map would require us to put a button on the screen so that link receivers could turn it off, and we're trying to keep the buttons as few as possible for the average user.
I was happy to realize today (2014 03 10) in xRez Studio's thread http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=00581351-82d8-438d-a37b-7eadb3fb4991&dis=eb45aa94-58a6-46e1-a118-bfd3fb80b2cc that you've got the image-specific bit working on the Share link URLs now.
Yep. We support that startat parameter. We need to optionally include that in the URL from the Share button to complete the scenario.
