I wonder sometimes if the people know that it's possible to ZOOM in a synth by just rolling with the little wheel on their mouse ?!?!?
It's more comfortable to visit a synth with no zoom-pictures so you dont't 'jump' at any click. It's possible to view closer for a statue or to read something writen.
And there are no memory problems if you only send 100 pictures (instead of trying 500!) they just have to merge / cover for about 30%.
(and I personally think, it's no use to try for a point-cloud in architecture, or landscape or any flat subject: the real photo is more beautiful ; point-clouds are good for subjects you are turning around, and you get a virtual object you can manipulate by holding the "green ring").

Thank you for reading happy synthmakers ;-)))

Pierrot I would like to try to persuade you.... have a look at this new synth: (Jlawpaugh). The point cloud is just as great as the photos. Even though it is not perfect - for example the photos taken of the underside of the bridge have a curved point cloud - it is still incredible! I think the way the detail of the graffiti comes out in the point cloud is real interesting.

Pierrot - here is newer one from today - this combines a building and statue.

I like the bridge because the photographer walked down to the water and we can the the floor from below (under?) and I can read the graffiti (Crip my #%!@ ;-) is the message? ;-))
But the point cloud here and for the building don't bring much
It's more interesting with the statue; a pity there is not the back of the statue included

Pierrot here is a new version of the Regis university uploaded by Schn828: point cloud is expanded

I know I said that I would have a new version of that up by today, I don't, here's why. I often queue my synths to render and publish after my roommates go to bed so that I don't slow down their internet. And it is nice to wake up to a cool new creation. Anyway, my computer froze last night. I will try again tonight, with luck Carroll Hall will be 360 degrees around. I might take the Ignatius Statue out to see how that affects it/not be so big. When that is up I will load him in. Also the Mary statue is getting a face lift.

This is some fun stuff, huh?

That was weird, the synth that my computer was working on when it crashed, is now in my profile.

Where are your new synths? I just see a new Mary on 17 February

Pierrot...I made a big discovery today - see: done by lostinthetriangle. This has to be one of the most incredible buiding point clouds - like those of Schn828, it has a lot of images
Pierrot21 (Over 1 year ago)
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! This one is wonderfull, that's sure!
I am against many pictures for a flat view (ie: only showing the front of a building); but you need a lot of pictures if you want to make a virtual visit in 3D, like this one: in and out, left and right, walls and roof; and it's possible with less pictures. Sometimes you get a point cloud, which can be funny ot useful.
Here we are in a different world (lost in the triangle !!!) probably more then 1000 pics (in one day? one week?) on a computer I can't dream about; and you get a point cloud that shows something which is not on the pics, I mean the view from the sky over the virtual church you can manipulate.

Hey Fred_Oxford , giving me error.. but for the others, the point cloud is really good.

Shail : Synth not found (it may have been deleted)
Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
Shail - I could not find that one either - maybe you have another link?
