Troubleshooting Tripod Solves in SynthEyes

September 5, 2023

When a tripod shot doesn’t contain enough significant information, it is impossible to determine a field of view from it. When that happens, the solve will produce indeterminate results—both 1806 and 1709, although you may think that 1709’s results are good. These video addresses customer concerns that 1806 isn’t handling these shots properly, showing what needs to be done in ALL versions—switch to Known lens mode. It shows how the Fuzz First Path control (Tripod Fuzz in 1809+) can be used, and gives some more insight into the solver in general.
