Wow ! I might be to old to say this, or do they still say this? "Cool....really, really cool".
In the Direct 3d viewer, alot of the street scenes really stand out beautifully in the point cloud. Nice work !
This one is a keeper for me.

Thanks, Jim, I appreciate it. =) This is one of my favourites too.

I'm waiting for the day when this will automatically link with my 'Orbital Propulsion...' and 'Obligatory Hydrant...' synths (or when the Bing Streetside car drives by and its 3D scanner information is combined with my synth's pointcloud). I do find that focusing on one object at a time leads to far better point clouds but sometimes I just want to see an idea of what everything would look like linked together. It can't hurt to try a big synth, right?

There are a fair few photos which didn't synth in which I've left included in this version of the synth, as learning what does or doesn't work is often more valuable and interesting to me than having only 100% synthy versions listed publicly. That's just me, though.

I also thought of a different technique for shooting the shots that look straight down the street as I was finishing this shoot that I'll have to try next time. It basically breaks down to a bunch of arcs from one side of the street to the other, keeping focused on one end of the road or block as you do so, rather than the method that I used here of disconnected straight paths up both sidewalks and back as well as straight up and down the middle of the road.

It seems like it might provide a more reliable navigation experience as well. Trying to move around in this version is pretty awful as far as the photos are concerned. Free navigation is pretty fun in pointcloud mode, though, especially, as you say, in the Direct3D viewer.

I agree with and like the idea of moving in arcs down the street. It's actually unneccisary to make a full arc (Three and sometimes two pictures suffice) I've done it myself before.

Looks good, Nathanael! The overhead view suggests that you have a strong 3D model waiting to be processed here.
