Matterport Virtual Reality (VR) 101: Jump In DanSmigrod 16 15 daysSnap (55): This was a big help and saved me a ton of time, thank you for your input Dan. I have an iPhone so I ended up purchasing a Homido V2 for the purposes of demoing to prospective clients. One thing I had overlooked is the foam backing.

iGUIDE to Google Street View examples Chris_iGuide 6 5 hoursMetroplex360 (6301): I think that automatically posting to GSV via iGuide is an EXCELLENT tool. The fact that iGuide offers a simple and accurate way to do this is superb. Correctly positioning and posing panoramas is the most tedious and difficult aspect of creating a GSV tour and this is all taken care of here! Bravo! I recommend that iGuide Operators consider using GoThru or PanoSkin in order to import their tours and refine if and where needed. I have...
Page navigation WP3D Plugin 3DPLUS 4 19 hoursrpetersn (1477): Hello - yes, trying to load 1000 Models would likely be slow. :) But, if you’re planning to develop a large scale site like you described, it would be relatively easy to add some custom development that controls the way models are output in lists. (ie: adding pagination/lazy loading/etc.) Alternatively, you can currently break up your volume of models (into separate pages) with WP3D “model types”. This does not require any custom...

Share Matterport Video w/ Realtors -It works GeorgeK 1 2 daysGeorgeK (811): Just got a call from someone that picked up a scan client by sharing one of my videos. Showing Realtors what other Realtors is doing is powerful. They do not want to be the last person to have something, if they consider themselves leaders in their area. I am trying to do two Vlog entries a week you may want to subscribe as I try and build the MATTERPORT influence. Please share these videos. https://youtu.be/OdDW4lEl2YU
Virtual Staging For Matterport foxwrth13 6 2 daysDom (37): @foxwrth13 @JakeRees @JonJ thanks for the comments and possible solutions! JonJ's approach is mainly used for commercial properties where the functional aspects are more important than bringing things together visually. Combining a Matterport mesh with our furniture library produces a correct result (i.e. everything is to scale), but of course the visuals are totally different. Here's a how to for doing that. Multistory: yes, that's possible!...

VRBO, Airbnb, HomeAway and more platforms .. DanSmigrod 4 3 daysJakeRees (88): @dphi- Not to be the bearer of bad news, but this is pretty common from matterport. I would be surprised if they actually have a google street view connection on time, like begging of '18 as they are saying. They are 3 years and counting behind on virtual staging, not to mention countless other small updates that took much longer then they originally quoted- Thankfully Dan and the We get around network has some say as to what gets done, as...

New Listing Platform for Real Estate Agents DanSmigrod 3 3 daysOpenHouseOptics (61): As an agent I think you won't get a lot of agents who pay to get on a limited platform (with regards to how much traffic it will get) when they are paying for MLS syndication already and it goes to Zillow and Realtor.com which are by far the most viewed sites for home buyers. Statistically, the top 5% of agents in any given market are the ones doing 95% of the listings so most agents simply won't have the inventory to support this kind of...

The challenge I had with the funky 360º photos/videos was caused by pairing the early beta version of the app (used with beta version of the hardware) to the production run version of the Camera.

Convert Matterport to AutoCAD Chemistrydoc 5 4 daysNicolasMorency (64): In most cases this work is done by simply tracing over point clouds. There are many advantages of using the point cloud over the OBJ or FBX model. You also have to keep in mind making floor plans require a different scan pattern since you are aiming for accuracy and not for visual walktrough. I've done quite a few scans for AEC in the last few months (150K sqft) and I keep learning how to maximize the use of the Matterport for use in engineering...
