Hi to everyone.
This morning I have seen that 2.10 Beta was available on my Red Hydrogen. I was so excited and I have immediately downloaded since there are very interesting features. However I rolled back almost immediately to 2.5, since at the moment I have found several things that I disliked. I will share the impressions here since I haven’t found in the app a way to report directly this feedback. I cannot exclude that some points are just the result of my misunderstanding
- The preview is no longer 3D: only after enlarging the the thumbnail of a 3D pictures, you see it 3D. As matter of fact I would have liked to have the possibility to use a 3D picture also as background of the smartphone (to make it even more unique if possible ), so this missing preview looks a step backward
- Apparently now I have to browse any single folder to look for the pictures, while before all pictures -no matter where they were- appeared in the main page. Not to mention that still if something is in the SD card cannot be selected and moved from the app.
- now there are three options to view a picture: 2D, the stereoscopic and the holoview; however I have found that opening pictures that appeared previously nice -especially the ones previously imported from my Fujifilm W3, but also the one shot by H1-, now all seemed to give me some sense of dizziness, as a stereoscopic picture with poor alignment, and artifacts (doors and windows bending and things like that); there are only a couple of exceptions among the pictures of the original sample folder (the optometrist and the truck, they both look great)
This last point was the most severe that pushed me to roll back. There could be some fine tuning to do, but I ignore it. As matter of fact recently I’m seeing some pictures on Holopix that look so bad in terms of 3D effect (looking just as two overlapped images): before I have simply considered the result of some bad manipulation of a beginner, but I’m worried they could be the result of producing with something newer with issues of backward compatibility.
The other things work smooth: the 2D to 3D conversion is great (!), as well as the streaming of 3D content, and a number of additional filters.
