How to shoot images

What are the system requirements to view synths on my computer?

The synths made with the technology of this technical preview work on the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. (Safari users need to manually enable WebGL.)
In addition, to view the interactive synths, your system must support WebGL. To run WebGL, your system needs a modern graphics card and processor. If WebGL is not supported on your system, we display a view-only movie version of the synth for you. To check if your system can run WebGL, visit WebGL Website.
If you still can’t view an interactive synth, your browser may be using compatibility mode to display it. Check your browser’s settings and disable compatibility mode for the page displaying the synth.
