My wife's 1960s era bicycle. It's getting on in years and we might be looking for a new home for it soon.

Very nice synth and point cloud of this unicolor bike. Photosynth might be your new home...

Thanks! I was hoping it would synth more completely. I think I need to be more principled about how I take the photos. After taking 100 or so I start to lose focus.

Hi, Baylee. Thanks for asking. A Photosynth is a collection of photographs that have been stitched together in 3D space. It's great when you need to capture both the greater context and the small details of something. You can embed them on a web site and share them via e-mail.

To get started, take about 30 pictures of your favorite object from all angles. Hold the camera steady or do it outside in the middle of the day when you have lots of natural light. Then click on the "Create" button on photosynth.net, and follow the instructions to create your own.

Matt, have the highlights always done the flying up to overhead and swooping back down to the destination? I'm thinking it came with one of the most recent updates to the SL3 viewer, but am wondering if I just overlooked it for a while.

Moving from the '5-speed' highlight to the 'Seat' exemplifies the transition I'm talking about. I was under the impression that until the past month or so, you always took the path approach.

How is it determined when to use the swing up and over transitions?

Thanks for noticing! That's a feature that shipped with the last major web site release a few weeks ago. When it's a long path between two highlights, and we think it will be less confusing to go up and back down, we do that.

I completely agree. My ethernet cable/data bus usually can't load all the tiles in time for long paths, so the basic result was just bumping into a bunch of pixelated garbage between highlight A and highlight B. This new technique sidesteps that entire mess and retains context very beautifully and clearly.

It must look especially pretty on top of a map.

All the best to you and yours,
