I recently made a very large synth (http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=fa95effc-e227-4c4f-8494-571607cf8982) with an amazing pointcloud, but was disappointed to see that it took a few seconds for all of the points to show up after letting it sit. Would it be possible for me to download a 3D model of the pointcloud so that I could view it fully without waiting, and possibly edit it in a 3D modeling program? Thanks, The Night Ninja
Greetings, Night Ninja,
As to viewing all your points at once as you move, just use the older Direct3D viewer. There's a link to it under the left hand corner of every synth when you use Internet Explorer or Firefox on Windows.
Here's the link for your synth in Direct3D:
As to downloading your pointcloud, it's not just one file, but rather broken up into smaller chunks of points per pointcloud and saved in binary form (you'll see the .bin file extension on them).
For different ways to download all your bin files that make up the pointcloud and convert them into CSV or PLY formats for use with modeling software, please see these links:
Also, if my rundown of the pointcloud was a little abrupt, please see one of the older discussions about it here on the site here:
I suggest this:
