How to Embed an iGuide 3D Tour in the Forum DanSmigrod 11 2 monthsfrstbubble (190): @DanSmigrod that was just from another post about a reply from Matterport saying that some options may be available in that time frame. I think it came from a news letter.

May Buy MP Camera: Couple of questions... sliderman 7 4 hoursJC3DCX (379): I have used CoreVR once and in South-Africa people is very slow on VR uptake, let alone normal 3D tours, so I would not pay extra when (if) they start charging,

Matterapps - RSS Feed Acomeau15 7 9 hoursMetroplex360 (2899): Just a note to anyone reading this -- I'm not keeping track of who is actively using MatterStats. I've kept the app/tool rather simple and avoided storing any data that is not necessary. If I had a vocal userbase, I would perhaps make feature requests. One idea is to actually pull the information automatically once a day and cache it. This would speed up loading tremendously. In addition, I could potentially allow feeds to be setup by...

Removing Camera from Mirrors Chadcloses 6 16 hoursMetroplex360 (2899): @Chadcloses -- Mirrors are such a pain. Half of my tours have unavoidable mirrors. As a proof of concept, I've shown that it's possible to remove the camera from the mirrors by injecting replacement tiles via a self hosted proxy system. It works by basically checking a local repository of files and if the file isn't there, it then fetches from Matterport's CDN. Because my system requires that MY server is constantly requesting from...

Pricing advice. DustinRobinson 12 18 hourspixelray (172): And time wise - a 5200 sq ft home could take 2 hours some days and 3 to 4 other days - it all depends on the layout. If that 5200 is a large ranch with a basement - maybe closer to the 2.5 hr mark. 3 stories with tons of nooks and crannies - could be easily 4 to 5. So giving a hard time on any give sq ft number is not exact science. Then add another hour to two for doing regular photos - IF you are a one man show and with prices on the...

Matterport 360 Photos ron0987 4 1 daymatthew (16): Hi there, Any chrono diagram about when will this be released by Matterport? I mean to be able to extract 360s in our computer or at Social media?

Mattertags Options & 3D Objects manipulation matthew 7 1 dayaerialpixels (85): @matthew @metroplex360 i was thinking more like metroplex360 was saying there is always a chance that since this is a 3rd party feature, it can be disabled by matterport at anytime? hence it isnt something we would want a client to expect it is a fully functioning feature? correct me if i am wrong. love matterplus, but havent been pushing it to clients for that reason above.

Travel with Matterport jscottsmith 10 2 daysjscottsmith (106): Thanks all. Just figured I'd update you. Based on your information, my concerns with the technical aspects (can you fly with the internal battery, etc) were alleviated, and the suggested carrying cases were great information as well. In the end, the insurance issue killed it. Costa Rica is not covered in my policy (which sounds fairly typical), and adding it would be something like $2500 with a $1000 deductible. Not even close to being worth it....

Hope this helps.
Smoothly rotating 360, what am I missing? aristepp 2 3 daysDouglasMeyers (130): Here is a little trick I found... When I start a scan I know the camera goes clock wise so I know that the spin will start pretty much where I started it at the location. I have noticed when you use walk thru and the pictures are in use when it goes to the next scan it starts where I started it, sooo don't start it on a wall or what not and point the starting position where you think it will look best at the start. Good Luck...

"VR only" option? ArtisticConcepts 3 3 dayshometakes (127): The Trouble with that is that you will set any of the clients that you manage to 'sell' with this VR promotion and their expectations will now be made higher for the better VR tour. If you dont give them the tour that you sold them on, they will be disappointed.

where do you hide while the camera spins? Rootsyloops 6 4 daysjustinv (115): @Rootsyloops I try and go to another room. It really depends on how many mirrors the place is decorated with. I love to think how good I was at staying out of the shot, and find myself later on hiding around the corner in a mirror or reflection in an oven. @Senojev I am not sure but I would guess about 10_15 feet for the rough draft in capture app. You can see things off in distance, say through a window, but the laser does not go that far.

We can remove obvious duplicates and prevent abuses like 'stuffing the ballot box"' but it is indeed likely that votes by some users are counted twice. That is not ideal but we can still draw useful inferences from the data because the sample size...

Best Camera Height? Helen 5 4 daysaristepp (7): I agree completely. I started shooting at the recommended 60 inches and I found that I shot a lot of ceiling space and that it was so high that my photos were oddly lobbed off at the bottom. 60 inches is just too high. 4.5 to 5 is right. No matter how high the ceiling is, you don't want lobbed off images and I sell a lot of packages, image and walk through.
