Matterport Kills Services Discussion Index DanSmigrod 11 20 hoursDanSmigrod (5281): @PedroAvilez Thanks for sharing. A GREAT read, including: "Tapping external expertise and sharing the load of innovation with others allows a company to expand its scope and bring new ideas to market faster." Thank heavens Matterport reads EVERY WORD of the Forum. Perhaps articles like this will help them change their mind about killing innovation by super-talented third-party developers. Dan

Matterport marketing questionable 3Dwalkmethru 23 2 hoursDSPhoto (4): The last thing I would want to do is a sell a camera to someone I could have as a client. The guy living across the street from me has 135 Remax agents. Why would I try to sell him a camera when I could do the work for him? If I had only found out what he did a year earlier...

Return on investment q65 3 3 hoursMetroplex360 (928): 3 months, light competition and largely sold to existing clients who bought traditional 360 tours with hotspots and photos. First 90 days I found it hard to give away. I attribute a snow ball effect with referrals and a growing portfolio to my personal success and have coupled it with region targeted pay per click which always gets s modest return on investment especially after a realtor convention or other convention that matterport is...

Zillow Certified Photographer Program DanSmigrod 44 1 dayDanSmigrod (5281): @LewisBishop Thank you SO much for testing and reporting that the Osmo Mobile works with the Zillow app. That's great news! Looks (almost always) silky smooth. I was worried that the Osmo trigger (shoot/stop) might not work. So, extra excited to hear that it works (along with the other OSMO controls. Dan
Enhancements to the newly released 360 Views DanSmigrod 4 1 dayMetroplex360 (928): Until 360 Views can directly link to the tour, it's a hard upsell. I am using these constantly though! Good to have for street view potential.

Mattertag in 360 View 3dinsights 4 2 days3DscannUK (451): @3dinsights The Mattertag needs to sit on the mesh of the model, that´s how it knows where to be. The 360 views doesn´t have a mesh, hence it can´t sit anywhere yet. I assume that MP is working on attaching the matter tag to the cube faces of the panorama. @Baxter You could capture the 36o with another camera (or if you´re adventurous you can mock around in the source code, find the jpg´s and stitch them together). You can then use a...
Capturing a retail store (dollhouse view) joez 5 2 dayssuncoastskyview (139): We always cover up any sensitive areas before scanning. Use a flower pot or other obstruction to hide it.

Export your 3D Space to Google Street View DanSmigrod 6 2 daysDolloff (25): Hello, Yes, we need Google integration. I am working on a deal with an owner of the former Golds Gym, scanning 6-7 of his large gyms. He would like them to have a pinpoint on Google. How do I do this now? This is a huge deal which could easily go to someone else, although the quality of our tours are so much better. Very frustrating!
Use an Android-based app to view/download DanSmigrod 4 2 daysMetroplex360 (928): Yeah, this is good. Capture can stay on iPad though. I'm an Android user for the most part, but I prefer that they don't try to accomodate a broad platform for their specific mission-critical capture tool.
Having a higher resolution Matterport camera DanSmigrod 2 3 daysfrstbubble (64): Out of all of these, I can see this as being implemented first. Sell more cameras.
iOS 10.0.2-Any Issues on iPad Pro 128GB 9.7? DanSmigrod 6 3 daysTosolini (568): I just finished a long project (430 scans), on my iPad Pro 128GB 9.7 with iOS9.3.4 and Capture 2.2 (372.13684) app. I'm experiencing uploading issues too. This model should take a while to upload, instead it uploads in a matter or seconds. My sense is that it's uploading only the metadata, but no actual raw data. I'll escalate to support.
Models still not uploading PhotoJoe 4 3 daysfrstbubble (64): Two ways to ensure you will not lose the scans. *Preferred* Get iExplorer you might be able to use the iTunes app. Copy everything in the Matterport app folder to your computer. If the models are not there when you reload the app restore the folder to the iPad. Use iCLoud back make sure your Matterport app is included in the backup. Remove and reinstall app. In a couple of days the data may show back up.
Help creating Mattertag posts for a fee DanSmigrod 5 3 daysfrstbubble (64): @Metroplex360 you can with Mattertag links just use the 'U' to get a link to the next level. The only downside would be that it might open the space in a new window. I haven't tested it with a Mattertag but the 'U' url generator will let you link to a specific place in the model.

Is iPad the Only Way to Upload? PhotoJoe 28 3 daysDanSmigrod (5281): @PhotoJoe @Lizzg question got me wondering... Could you restore your iCloud to a different iPad and see if that works? Perhaps with an iPad with cellular? Might be worth buying another iPad since you have paid biz that you are trying to deliver this weekend. Dan

Less time for each individual 3D scan? DanSmigrod 5 3 daysMetroplex360 (928): @CGFlash: +1. And Theta doesn't show a visual representation of your progress. I love that Matterport does this - I'm not operating blindly.
Matterport Scanning Tips: Outdoors DanSmigrod 16 3 daysunewe (1): One of my first projects was this museum. The owner wanted to show the illuminated fountain and line outdoors. I tried that while you were walking outside the sky were getting darker. It was a little difficult because of the few lights, the scans couldn't properly be aligned.
Wild Card: Other Matterport Suggestions? DanSmigrod 8 3 daysUserName (106): Looks like a secret Easter egg. I tried it and the magic panel opened. I'll play with it. That sparked one more wish list item .. Zero Markers That may be impossible, but think about regular Street View. it has no markers / way-points. You simply make a circle appear at the point you want to go (along the path they've filmed, usually the street) and you go there. In the Street View old days, that wasn't possible. Here's what I'd like...
Faster Cloud processing time for your Spaces DanSmigrod 3 3 dayscire385 (55): I personally do not see an issue with the processing time. As long as you're setting the right expectations to your client. I would rather see them focus on other features than to spend time working on process time.
Mark windows, mirrors, and trim in Workshop DanSmigrod 4 4 daysjntooker (79): This would be so helpful! Sometimes I'm moving too quickly to trim as I go and having to complete that prior to uploading means processing has to wait until I get a chance to complete trim. It's especially annoying when I get home late and want to process overnight except I haven't trimmed yet. :( If we could upload prior to trim it would save a lot of time.
Edit Names on Snapshots / 360 3dinsights 3 4 days3dinsights (7): Yes found the snapshots menu on the left. Ive been looking for it from within the highlights reel. Thanks @alsangio
Use an iPhone instead of an iPad to control? DanSmigrod 4 4 days3dinsights (7): i dont think its a good idea. screen is too small. With regards to an iphone trigger, that may be nice, however having an ipad close enough to process will usually mean it will be in the shot so no a benefit in my opinion.
Embed audio directly into Mattertag™ Posts DanSmigrod 5 4 days3dinsights (7): Panorama style tours have been doing this for a long time. See example here This is a new market that we could tap into and offer far more comprehensive tours compared to what is available at the moment.
Matterport Training Made Easy? DanSmigrod 2 4 daysRPOceanic (19): Not only do I think this would be an important resource for camera owners..... I would think it would be a priority for Matterport as an educated user means less questions/workload for Customer Service.

Capture 3D objects: 3D-enabled phone/tablet DanSmigrod 2 4 daysPetraSoderling (127): I have a link to a large manufacturing company who has been looking for a 3D point cloud software to model their odd shaped industrial equipment. Their problem is this: These large industrial equipment are manufactured in the USA but sold and shipped all over the world. Their customers often have old industrial facilities and they need to measure very carefully if these new machines will fit. A point cloud 3D software would help in fitting the...
