What about the 'get satisfaction' forum? Should we post again? Will you still answer the questions / problems reported in the 'get satisfaction'?
Could you put some trick (like cookies) in this forum, so we could easily know where (in which topic) they are messages we didn't allready read; at least with the time of the last connection to the forum
Get Satisfaction will continue to stay online as it is a much more organized tool for tracking bugs and reviewing the backlog of feature requests. Over time this forum will get built out more and at some point it should have enough features to justify moving all the GetSat content over... for now, we'll continue to check both location for your bugs and suggestions. Post wherever is easiest for you. Thanks for the support in making Photosynth even better.
And your suggestion for read since your last visit is a good idea, something we'll add to the list of things to work into the forums.
I only wanna say onething, THANX 4 UR hard work!!
I'm truly puzzled. I can see the point of stitching photos together to get a larger coherent image, but I just looked at a load of the synths here and, while many are great photos, I cannot see what's gained by splicing them in this haphazard way.
Can someone explain what th point of this is?
ADMout, you need to look at the Point Clouds (Press 'P' on the keyboard). The photos are not haphazard and it's not just about making a bigger image. Photosynth reconstructs an entire 3-Dimensional universe from the 2-D photos.
For example, look at this synth of a human hand (Press 'P' to see the Point Cloud) -- and use the halo to rotate the scene:
