What's new in version 2.0
*** IF YOU HAD TROUBLE GETTING SHARP IMAGES WITH VERSION 1,*** TRY VERSION 2'S MULTI-POINT FOCUSING; IT HELPS A LOT!- SynthCam now offers multi-point focusing and tilted focal planes. Thenumber icon on the toolbar cycles through 1, 2, 3, and 4-point modes. Ineach mode the solid square shows where the camera itself is metering andfocusing, and the open reticles show other points the app is tracking andkeeping sharp. These squares and reticles can be moved or resized bydragging or pinching them. The 1st screenshot below used 2 points, at thetop and bottom of the cactus flower. The 2nd screenshot shows what 4-pointmode looks like before pressing Record. Multi-point focusing lets youalign the focal plane with any collection of objects in the scene. It alsolets you simulate a tilt-shift lens. To do this, place 2 or 3 points alonga line through the scene, then rotate the phone slowly and continuouslywhile recording. With some practice you can take pictures that make theworld look like a miniature model. Look at the 3rd screenshot below.- Synthetic images are sharpened when stored in the Camera Roll. Trackingand resampling induce a consistent 1-pixel blur, so mild unsharp maskingworks well for this purpose. The level of sharpening is adjustable on thePreferences screen.- A collection of algorithms that makes tracking more robust: by predictingwhere the focusing square might go next and moving it there, by detecting awandering focus square and freezing it before it starts jumping around,etc. The accelerometer is still used to correct pitching and rolling asin version 1.1, but only in 1-point focusing mode.Minor improvements and bug fixes:- Redesigned focusing square to make it visible against any background.- Tuned what things get reset on single and double tap of Reset button.- Tracked features can be closer to the edge of the screen than before.- More graceful if tracking is lost or a tracked feature wanders offscreen.
