ANNOUNCEMENT: Terms of Service Rollback Metroplex360 66 16 daysELAN42 (37): Actually, all of this way of doing business is illegal in Europe, but still they are selling in Europe and investing in local offices (London is 1st example). I'm in Italy, and I like and use Matterport hardware. However, I find outrageous this commercial and legal behaviour like "you sign up a contract that we can change anytime anyhow" policy.

Listing goes to another broker? Matterport? DanSmigrod 17 1 hourVTLV (1057): I need to re read my terms link on website to better reflect copyright. I wrote up the copyright agreement that needs to go with every invoice. However, most agents could care less about previous agent photos and tend to want new. As if the listing looks old using previous photos or tour. Which must be the reason why the home didn’t sell according to their listing presentation. Lol.
JUST Floorplans? Liam_Tayler 7 4 hoursLiam_Tayler (64): As it turns out I have just had an email from a client complaining about cost again.. there is a low cost competitor who is bottoming out the market and so I am looking at figuring out some costings (with MOQs) to get in the market and still maintain some margin.... it is a race to the bottom guys. But as a wise man once said there might not be room for another matterport provider,... but there is always room for the best!!!
WGAN-TV Mashing Up BLK360 and Matterport DanSmigrod 4 6 hoursMetroplex360 (7792): Hi All! I've been greatly blessed by another Matterport Field Tester over this past week who has loaned me their equipment for both field testing and developing use-cases for mashing up the LEICA BLK360 with the Matterport Pro-2. In doing this, please know, I am not an AEC person and I am not someone who has any use-case for a point cloud or a 3D Object file. My primary use-case for the BLK360 is to take Matterport scanning outside and to...

WGAN-TV: Small 360º LUNA Camera - 1st Look DanSmigrod 1 15 hoursDanSmigrod (15124): 360º Video: LUNA Camera Parachute Testing (2016) | Video Courtesy of Luna 360 YouTube Channel Hi All, Seems like there is a new 360º 1-click camera every week.

Missing Teaser Video/GIF...? Queen_City_3D 1 15 hoursQueen_City_3D (1588): This seems odd... I had a Matterport model process where the teaser video/gif file started in the bedroom. This particular client really likes the gifs to send out in their emails and so, because the look wasn't ideal, we slightly tweaked some trim lines and reprocessed (hoping to get a teaser that started in the kitchen as they typically do). Oddly enough, when the model final re-processed, there was no teaser video/gif file at all the...
WGAN-TV: Split Screen>CUPIX and 3D BIM Model DanSmigrod 6 1 dayDanSmigrod (15124): WGAN-TV: CUPIX Split Screen: Comparing a 3D Tour to BIM Model to Time Frames of 3D Tours with Scott Anderson (@scott_cupix) and Paul Collart (@pcollart) from CUPIX (And @leonvanzweel in the Virtual Studio Audience) Hi All, Must watch!

Commercial property and Frustration. leonherbert 5 1 dayleonherbert (88): Thanks everyone, I believe I sold them on all the benefits. That was sort of the last question he asked. If this was working for commercial realtors, I doubt they would share that information any way. I think I am going to have to say lets do pilot and see how it goes.
Rylo 360º Camera Adds Blue-Tooth Remote DanSmigrod 1 1 dayDanSmigrod (15124): Hi All, Forbes (19 April 2018) Rylo Surprises Owners Of Their 360 Camera By Adding Bluetooth (Plus Some Other Features) If you are thinking about getting a 360º camera, you might compare this one to Ricoh Theta S, Ricoh Theta V and Insta360 One. Best, Dan
Are the quality of pro1 tours getting worse? JCHAFE 11 2 daysjasondavidpage (151): In the first example you provided, those "beams" seem to remind me of when your cell phone lens has been cleaned but there are oils still on the lens. You may need to get a qtip with and alcohol pad or lens cleaning pad and do a thorough cleaning of the protective glass in front of it. On another note, I too have the first version and feel like the processing is getting worse for most scans that I do.

WGAN-TV BLK360 + Multivista + Matterport DanSmigrod 5 2 daysMarkCantu (40): @rzphotoman, I think there is plenty of business out there. Contrary to movie wonderland, most architect offices run on shoestring budgets, and it wouldn't be in their best interest to hire a person and to do Matterport. Even with the basic plan, we are tied into Matterport for $600 a year.

My First Single-Page Website sbl110 6 3 dayssbl110 (106): Hi Mark and Gordon, You will be happy to know that I've changed the picture on the web page. It's not as bad as I would have thought. I didn't want the white text to be washed out by the picture. Mark I think a twilight shot would be great, I'll have to brush off my copy of Photoshop and see what I can do. Thanks for your input. Scott
Side by side still photo comparison leeverdon 9 4 daysMarkCantu (40): I took a Udemy course on Real Estate and Architectural photography. One of the easiest things to spot, and what all photographers should strive for according to the instructor is the clarity of the outside via the windows, you don't want the outside to be washed out. HDR is one way, but using Manual Mode on a DSLR and always shooting in RAW is another great option. Thanks for posting.
Practical & Sellable Usage of MT Measurement MarkCantu 1 4 daysMarkCantu (40): Newbie question here again, I was wondering if there is a target segment for Matterport's Measurement feature. I conceptually see the usage (Architecture-Engineering-Construction), but I was wondering what type of success others may be having? I viewed Dan's Forum on BLK 360 combined with Matterport last Friday [13 April 2018], and I was in awe of where the technology is going - I am just curious if any one is already using this feature with...
The dreaded long-term hosting question Scrantastic 8 4 dayschermle (1): I know you're looking for a contract. I can't help you there, but I do think it's advisable to specify time constraints. I was bidding on a job recently, and one of the terms the potential client wanted was "indefinite" hosting. I discussed a few options with him, all of which he declined. If he was the only client you got in a year, and I'm not saying that's your situation. client just cost you $600.00. Depending upon how the scan...
What iPad Models are good for drone control? ParkPrince 3 4 dayschermle (1): Hi, I've been using an ipad air 2 for about a year. It's probably the largest one you can fit into the controller cradle. I use the same thing for Matterport scans. Regardless of what you buy, I would strongly suggest you purchace a sunshade for the monitor. Viewing the monitor on bright days can be really tough. The shade probably won't resolve the viewing problems, but it'll help. I think you can get them for around $15. USD
Real Estate Image Enhancement Services immersivespaces 8 5 daysJuMP (874): @JonJ I have notice that you provide Matterport conversion services. But the requirement for Multifloor showcase below is too complex to be done. For multi-floor properties, please send only 1 floor per .zip file. This can be done by duplicating your model in the capture app. After deleting all other floors, upload the single floor model and repeat for each floor desired. (no additional processing fee is incurred since each processed floor is...

Do you auto pilot your drones? Metroplex360 11 5 daysCharetteImaging (25): I'll second what frstbubble mentioned about shutter speed. Make sure it's double your frame rate. Shooting 4k/30? Frame rate should be 1/60. Depending on how bright it is, you may need to use an ND filter to achieve the desired frame rate. I've also found that further doubling the shutter speed works in a pinch. So 1/120, 1/240, etc.
MLS Image Parameters leeverdon 3 5 daysimmersivespaces (439): MLS services vary on what they accept for image sizes. Your best bet is to contact your local MLS provider and ask to speak to the person who manages it. We have 6 different MLS providers in our area, and each is different. One of them here will not accept images larger than 720x680 (which I personally find ludicrous). In most cases, the MLS service will accept any file size for upload and they will automatically process the file to the size...
