I have made walk-panorama synths in the past. Although not 100% they come a good way to virtually walking a site and looking around. Can this be done with one of the new specific synth types? If not than please have a walk and pan synth type too.
Great suggestion, Joscelin! I'm for this too.
I think you're suggesting that all the photos be kept separate at each position, correct?
I've also suggested something similar: a synth of multiple stitched panos, but although they differ in their details, our requests both seem to have a good overlap.
Here's my 'Do you plan to ever enable multi-spherical pano synths?' discussion for anyone who wants to show support for both: http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=00581351-82d8-438d-a37b-7eadb3fb4991&dis=508ae09d-8b14-4628-80b2-c680674bcde3
This http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=72c640e9-085f-4a9c-a670-98d0dc57d514& is an example of a past Synth of mine. However, I understand now that this is not a Walk-Pano Synth according the new definitions. It would be a multi, parallax pano Synth. Which is more like what NateLawrence is asking for here http://photosynth.net/discussion.aspx?cat=00581351-82d8-438d-a37b-7eadb3fb4991&dis=508ae09d-8b14-4628-80b2-c680674bcde3
Please explain exactly what you mean by a "walk-panorama". Is it where you take a panorama at every step along a walk?
