Problem with bright reds, oranges and yellow manolohk 5 1 hourmanolohk (37): So I just wanted to update you guys. The response from Matterport was that they are releasing a color correction firmware and that I have to "reshoot" the place. Oh and they say "Sorry" as well. I find this kind of issues unacceptable. This was a huge client for me and now its lost. Beware of this lighting problems.
Competitor? StevenHattan 17 2 hoursMetroplex360 (436): @SteveHattan - I -love- the idea behind this. Looks like it's GoPro driven or something similar. The interface ruins everything. If this were done correctly, it would be a VERY saleable product.

Does My Company Name Suck? StevenHattan 10 3 hoursCDM (7): Just some advice from when we started. I have 17 years experience in commercial photography and much of that stems from creating images that "brand" a product or service. So when we started INVELOP we wanted to have a name that not only encapsulated but encompassed our service. Our name is not completely descriptive of what we do but it relates in with much cognitive effect. Matterport scans envelop the viewer in the space. We...

Beta Testing New WP3D Models Feature DanSmigrod 7 15 hoursGeorgeK (136): Dan: I am pretty sure you can get away with posting the picture if it is not boosted or advertised but then there is the linking issue. I talked to Matterport about this and they told me 4 months ago this was frequently brought up. Here is the thing if you sent them to the model they have to start the Matterport. And then getting the people back to the agent from the Matterport is difficult. Most agents understand they need that contact...
Facebook disabled account due to Matterport kenman 5 15 hourskenman (1): Thanks guys, It could sent be to a web page. I didn't want to create a landing page for each scan buuuuut.... I was just thinking that hundreds of links to scans get posted daily and surely FB is not disabling every Matterport users account. The click bait thing sounds reasonable... I didn't make that connection. Explains a lot.

Then, when the next generation comes out, you will be a super-star with 360 spherical video. Dan

360 view HarlanHambright 41 19 hoursJonJ (172): @JRMaddox, Once you are in the workshop, expand the section for 360 views. Once there, double click the view that you would like to see. Frame your shot and then capture the image just as you would with any image. When you navigate to the highlight reel, you will see your 360 image and you can add it to the the highlight reel. Be aware, that you must have at least one 360 scan in your highlight reel as well. Don't forget to hit...
Tell me again how Virtual Reality is no big GlennTremain 6 22 hoursUserName (82): Good points. Today's VR may flourish when people must wear bulky headsets if they want to reap a specific benefit. This award-winning Gear VR app has room for improvement, but it may be an example of a must-experience VR app for people who must give a speech. You either don the bulky headset or you miss the learning experience. (link) Imagine practicing a...

Airbnb, VRBO and HomeAway: Tactical Help DanSmigrod 4 1 day3DscannUK (385): @DanSmigrod Sorry, I wasn´t being very clear. I reached out and they replied that it was a beta program, embedding Matterport spaces would be by invitation only. It´s kind of annoying that they´re not just making it publicly available, because they´ve obviously built support for it, Matterport has even adapted their CSS with a smaller logo etc. I guess what we could do is try to put some figures together and send an email to...

Promoting Matterport with Video to Public GeorgeK 11 2 daysGeorgeK (136): ODDLY this was one of my best preforming videos. This is part of "NOT" a Complete Story. This was a remarket piece, most everyone that saw it was directed to and had already seen another group of videos. I posted this on Instagram and it was one of my most liked videos. Go Figure! And your right Steven, I am going to travel to the tune of the Drummer that got me where I am, and I do not come without some serious REALTOR street...
Something Strange want to call Ghostbusters Gerhard 4 2 days3DscannUK (385): I`m going to place my bet on the palmtree that´s captured outside the bedroom. Probably happened due to the way the pointcloud splits the floors, and the palm tree is perceived as ground floor, the first floor bedroom right next to it is perceived as part of ground floor due to it being the same height to the slanted ceiling. There´s a hole in the mesh in the bedroom wall, maybe a trim line that´s placed to close to the wall from the outside....

Storing models on Icloud tomjones2787 6 3 daysfrstbubble (37): The merging of the two iPad Minis did not work. The database could not be merged as there were duplicate keys. So I have stored the models as backups under different folders. I can restore each one separately but cannot have all of my models in one place. The only thing that I would worry about as was mentioned before is if they change the database structure in a future release of the capture app you may not be able to access your past models....

Huge Scan HarlanHambright 16 3 daysUserName (82): Thanks. I just tried it and it works great. Maybe they can tweak that feature so you can jump around a model quickly via clicking links you've bookmarked. Currently, the model reloads the entire Matterport model from scratch before navigating to the linked location. Some people viewing a large model, such as the Little Hawkins Island property, might love the ability to explore 20 or 30 interesting locations randomly and later backtrack to...

Scanning outdoor tours in bright sunlight joez 6 3 daysmori (73): If you want to scan outdoor direct sunlight will kill the 3D, especially on reflective floors. If you want 3D outdoors, scan early in the morning, evening or at night and best with a light cloudy sky. But it works:

Top 3 Questions to Ask Matterport Leadership DanSmigrod 11 3 daysMark (1): Hi CKC, We were working on offline app for Win/Mac using the Panotour/Krpano VRs files. The need for making separate app was the fact that Panotour Viewer does not support embedding mp4/audio and pdf files that was used by custom interactive VRs tours. Does anyone know if there is possibility to host Matterport files offline? If possible, we could port the app to support the Matterport files for offline viewing. Thanks Mark 360viewlabs Team...
