I've been away from Photosynth for a while but just got back with a bunch of new material to synth. One big change to Photosynth appears to be that the representation of the point cloud is quite different now. The point cloud is more "chunky" looking and less "elegant."
I'm wondering if this is a bug or a design change in Photosynth. I found the more sparse point cloud to be significantly more visually appealing.
