Get all your questions answered about our latest Photosynth Technical Preview.
Since I created a thread for reporting problematic synths before, I thought that one where we share deserving synths that haven't found the spotlight yet was in order.
A lot of folks in the preview aren't active on the forums, so I'd like to primarily make this about sharing others' synths, rather than our own. A great place to start looking is here: http://photosynth.net/explore.aspx?filter=DateDescending&time=AllTime&type=SynthPacket
If you'll be chatting on the forum, you probably want to start your own thread for your own synths so that people can engage with you on them and have a decent conversation about them.
These don't have to be the most amazing synths ever.
It might be as simple as someone's first synth that simply turned out well. Give their profile a link too.
Here's an example to get us started:
Home in Winter by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/jessicagoldyn
Short + simple but effective.
I think the tree on the left worked pretty well and so do the steps in the sidewalk as you turn the corner.
'Pano' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/Wyesguy
I don't know if this is just taken on top of a high vantage point or from a kite or UAV, but it's a pretty rad panorama style synth.
'Bench 2' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/dougmath
Simple wall synth of a bench. Very small scale, but I liked the subject matter and it is relatively artifact free.
'Laguna De Los Tres' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/snandy10
More movement by people in the scene than you'd want for a seamless pano, but beautiful view + exposures. Other pano style synths on profile look promising too.
'jj' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/JeremieRiff
To be honest, the foreground matching isn't much to write home about, but the time lapse quality of the clouds movement + the sun is quite beautiful.
'Off to the winter woods' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/MichaelGannotti
It's a bit bleak, but the ground plane works really quite well for a nice sustained walk, especially past the initial driveway.
'Malvern Microsoft Technology Center Perceptive Pixel Area Spin Synth' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/MichaelGannotti
Mainly I'm just impressed at how well this holds together for how little the shots have in common when rounding each end of the wooden beams.
Since the scene is composed of mainly planar surfaces the reconstruction works.
'Winter Wonder Panorama' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/SevenEleven
It's a vertical panorama style synth and with not quite enough photos to ease between facing the lens into the light and facing into the dark to make the blending smooth, but the scenery is exquisite.
'kk' by http://photosynth.net/preview/users/patrizio.borella
Wall synth of... what appears to be a workbench borders on macro. Pretty solid sense of space.
Here one of the best I've seen, park http://photosynth.net/preview/view/ab78587f-91f9-4b77-a32b-0462eeab414a
Another amazing one.
