ANNOUNCEMENT: Terms of Service Rollback Metroplex360 66 22 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.

Max SQ FT of House that's Under 100 Scans? DanSmigrod 1 19 hoursDanSmigrod (15196): Hi All, I could imagine that you are trying very hard to keep Matterport scans at 100 or fewer so that you are not charged $19 more. What is the typical maximum SQ FT that you do in 100 or fewer (processed) scans? Dan P.S. I say processed because I could imagine that when you do 101 to 125 scans, you may duplicate the model and delete scans until your scan count is 100 or fewer so that you don't get dinged an extra $19.
Matterport Ecosystem>Deleted Models Deleted? DanSmigrod 11 19 hoursDanSmigrod (15196): Hi All, A related WGAN Forum discussion: ✓ Dear Matterport: About Your Pricing Plans Best, Dan
Serendipity HarlanHambright 7 19 hoursQueen_City_3D (1609): @JonJ You make a good point that just for the processing costs alone, it might be worth looking at to have 2 business accounts. I still think Matterport's 300 model limit is flawed. I hate that I have to go through several years worth of models to decide which ones to delete. When I bought Matterport my understanding was that "hosted" models were ones that had showcase sharing turned on... not simply ones that you have scanned....

Mattertags - Default Off? PropertyLaunch 2 1 dayrpetersn (1609): Hello @PropertyLaunch - You could turn Mattertags off using the existing Matterport parameter: (Note that all Matterport parameters are baked into our WP3D Models product for ease of use) I don't believe there is (yet) a way for the tags to be default "off" and then be able to be toggled back "on" (inside a RUNNING Model) without fully reloading the content.
Urgent: Matterport Capture App Crashing! Networker 6 1 dayNetworker (58): @rko1, @DanSmigrod WOW! Thanks. The checklist will come in handy. Also, I did not either reboot the camera nor did I erase a few scans. Is it just me or, should Matterport be working diligently for these types of issues, not to be happening?

What are people using for External 3d reinspimg 7 1 daylauks (13): I do not think its crazy, I fully support this idea.I only see that MP is relying mostly on structured light to create the mesh, not photogrammetry. I am not sure they have all the resources to do it, as it is a totally different domain. Months ago I spoke with guys of Zephyr that they should get in touch with MP. But MP wasn't interested. Either they don't get the importance, or they have a plan B :-) Cheers Luc
CUPIX Versus Matterport in AEC Space DanSmigrod 7 1 dayMetroplex360 (7828): Remind me of that when people are saying that AEC demands Lidar over IR too :) Is this where the videogrammetry solution shines? My admission, and I mentioned it before -- Matterport does not have a side-by-side mode, and if they did create one, I would imagine that WebGL would crash from two concurrent instances. However, neither of these two potential advantages rule out Matterport as a tool that could provide the same benefits. ...

Embed living 360 photos - PanoMoments + WGAN dustinkerstein 12 2 daysdustinkerstein (25): Hey! I just wanted to share that we opened up the iFrame embed functionality to all users (Free and Pro). Previously, in order to embed here on WGAN you had to have a Pro account. That's no longer required :) We also just "soft-launched" non-360 PanoMoments, so you can upload any video and convert it into a living photo. Go play around. [panomoments][/panomoments]

WGAN-TV Mashing Up BLK360 and Matterport DanSmigrod 8 2 daysMetroplex360 (7828): I used the BLK 360 to complete a backyard scan on a residential single family shoot. I shot at HDR5/HIGH for the first few, then dialed down to HDR2/MED and finished the MESH with HDR Off/LOW. You can compare the difference between HDR2 and HDR off in the corner of the yard where I scanned by the deck chair and behind the deck char. It's startling. One of the challenges...
