Matterport to explode (in a good way) DanSmigrod 14 3 daysDanSmigrod (12130): @Home3D From reading your post, it is obvious that Matterport needs to market to people that are planning to sell their homes: not to real estate agents.

Initially, they will say yes to have a competitive advantage to win the listing; then, they will say yes because every agent does it. Like drug manufacturers marketing to...

Labels Showing Up on Wrong Floor in Workshop DanSmigrod 5 2 hoursJC3DCX (781): It seems that the mesh is not "seeing" a floor or floors, when you place a label on a floor it just "drops" right through to the bottom floor... Maybe the MP Techies will have a solution. I have only had it with one of my models thus far. :-)
Matterport got 5M from Ericsson Ventures JuMP 3 4 hoursDanSmigrod (12130): @JuMP @TerryBox I could imagine that Matterport wants something form Ericsson - and Ericsson is willing to do what Matterport is asking for - but wanted equity in order to do the deal.

Insta360 Pro Review Bale100 11 7 hourssrennick (268): I had a conference call with a prominent east coast company that creates 360/vr content for the entertainment industry. They have produced football and basketball games, commercials and lots more. They desire to be the largest producer of online video series. I spoke with the creative director and he suggested the Insta Pro. The question I forgot to ask him....what do they use? His company is creating Emmy awarding winning stuff for Disney,...

Residential development walkthrough RobinLycka 14 13 hoursmp2fp (277): @Property3dNZ I really like the tracing in the aerial 360´s where you can see all the plots. Looks brilliant! Thanks for sharing! @Lizzg The development is to big to use matterport and 360´s - it´s 300 units. :eek: Unfortunately the client chose not to proceed with a complete tour of the development at this point. We´ve been instructed to do some of the show homes though, so not all lost :)

Stats about why video Matters DanSmigrod 7 1 dayGeorgeK (697): Great Post Dan: I was not a big fan of Bombbomb. I have since found better systems, including Instavidnow.com The observations about video are true but delivery is somewhat problematic. We are in a weird market in San Diego, I just aided a buyer with a 935K purchase and there was no video for the home and it sold in a few days. NOW the question is would video induced by client to have paid say 10K more. There is a great value in being...

Extremely excited about Cupix new VR service yoon2366 4 1 dayCelisNet (217): Thanks for sharing this option but I've seen no difference between the other inferior options like inmoviewr, iguide, etc. Dorky transitions, no dollhouse view. Is there more features that I missed? Once the clients are used to matterport quality we can't present this solutions. IMHO.

Dollhouse and Floorplan View Quality immersiveprop 1 2 daysimmersiveprop (160): Has anyone noticed an improvement in the quality of the dollhouse and floorplan view with the new camera?

A scan in the wrong place in the Capture app DanSmigrod 4 2 daysRPOceanic (112): I've noticed this primarily when scanning outdoors w/ wide open spaces and uv interference and am always extra careful in checking scan location when doing so. In this instance- deleting the scan, lowering the tripod, moving closer to an exterior wall as well as decreasing distance between scans has resolved the issue.

WebGL: Matterport vs Sketchfab on iPad 360ProsBoris 3 2 daysmori (358): I would assume this due to Apple´s bad browser engine and old models.

Have You Explored Matterport Scenes? Metroplex360 10 3 daysMetroplex360 (5719): You know, it's rather funny. If this is the best that the current generation of Tango apps can do - then Matterport have positioned themselves in an authoritative place -- not only are they the leaders in consumer-level 3D capture of spaces - but they are also providing the "best" in low cost consumer scanning. If that best isn't that great, then they've dismissed any one else's attempt to leverage the technology in attempt to...

How Matterport Can Sell More Pro2 3D Cameras DanSmigrod 15 3 daysmori (358): Great discussion and topics. I still think MP should honor the (very) early adaptors and buyers of a Pro1 with a very very special upgrade deal, so these ones can also benefit from the new Pro2.
