Photosynth – 3D Tools
Photosynth is a powerful set of tools for capturing and viewing the world in 3D. You can share these views with your friends on Facebook, publish them to Bing Maps, or embed them in your own Web site. Photosynth offers two styles for creating immersive 3D experiences: synths and panoramas. Choose a panorama when you can capture everything from a single location with a single zoom level. Great for giving a sense of what it feels like to be in a one particular place. Can be 360° in both directions, but doesn’t have to be. Simple to navigate – all you can do is go left/right, up/down and zoom in/out. Good for capturing different sides or details of an object. Synths were the original experience on this site, and they remain its unique feature. More complex to navigate than panoramas because you are moving from photo to photo.
