Manual stitching and preview feature

There is one thing wrong with photosynth, a big thing. The program is AMAZING! But, sometimes it doesn't match the pictures correctly. I was wondering if there were any plans to add a manual 'fixing' feature.

What would happen is:

1. You would add the images and click synth

2. The program would reconstruct the scene and match the images

3. After it has made the synth, BEFORE UPLOADING, it would show it to you, and you would be able to fix it if there is something wrong, like a photo that wasn't matched correctly.

4. You fix it, and send it to the server

We are planning a manual fixing feature, but forcing it to match places in photos that it doesn't think match is one of the trickier parts, and we aren't going to be tackling that part of the problem soon.

One way *you* can fix these problems is to take another photo of the area that should match from an in-between angle and zoom-level.

Note that fixing by adding photos is pretty fast. Even though it completely recomputes the synth, it doesn't re-upload photos it has already uploaded, so you don't need to wait around for minutes or hours as you did the first time.

Hope that helps...
David.
