Why Other Cameras, Platforms & Related Tech? DanSmigrod 13 7 dayszan5hin (1): Hi, first I would like to thank Dan for this forum. I am not a current Matterport user but I am a Google Trusted Photographer with 400 shoots under my belt, doing retail and commercial spaces.

Can't load models into Gear VR tomjones2787 5 5 hoursCarlosFHdz (490): @queen_city3D , your preferences are set for that type of link to default to gear vr or default to cardboard vr (once selected it asks "always" or "just once" ). You can change that in the settings in your phone.

Matterport is the Gold Standard davidpylyp 3 15 hoursVRealExperience (16): I agree with the product and solution, but their support is lackluster. This is not a personal shot at the people they have in support, but more the way their support is structured and operationalized Forget 24x7 which I think should be a given for them - but how they offer support in general. It's really only email and in some cases 4 days go by. Does anyone know a single real estate agent who is also patient? Most "Sales"...

Offline model crashing when viewing on iPad Tosolini 6 20 hoursChateauImage (4): Just this morning I have experienced the same issue - seems to load, then just white screen - on a 11,000 sq ft home I scanned over a month ago. Yes, slightly over 200 scans, and the model has PREVIOUSLY always displayed fine on the iPad app, but now will not. No changes to my camera firmware (camera purchased only about 2 months ago) or any other software I'm using, so I must assume this is some change at Matterport? Odd, because the exact...
New and Improved: MP2SQFT+ Now live! DanSmigrod 14 20 hoursDanSmigrod (5812): @DustinRobinson We Get Around quotes residential real estate for sale based on square feet (sq ft). Most agents already know the square footage based on the house previous MLS listing. We do charge for scanning non-heated spaces such as patios/decks. So, while a client may say 3,500 sq ft, the actual space scanned is 4,000 sq ft. The Guide to Matterport Service Provider Pricing - curated by We Get Around - is free for We Get Around...

Misalignment - Is this fixable? Hide scans? ScanMan 1 2 daysScanMan (112): Is this classic misalignment ? Im seeing scans from the floor below appear on the upper floor as can be seen in the smaller circles in the image attached. Is it fixable other than hiding the scans.
Matterport Point Cloud Beta Program for AEC DanSmigrod 3 2 daysMetroplex360 (1282): By signing up for this, Matterport will provide you with access to the XYZ point cloud. What I find very curious is the manual nature of providing these. An XYZ point cloud file is generated for every single model, just the same way that an OBJ file is generated. The OBJ file can be downloaded via the Matterport Portal, but the XYZ point cloud cannot. Before system changes in September, it was possible to download the XYZ point cloud by use...
Hyperlinks on mattertags 3Dwalkmethru 8 2 daysScanMan (112): I've successfully linked from a model to a second one but I'm unable to get back to the original model again via another link back I've created. Is the [clickhere] option the only option ?

MatterStats>a free tool for sharing MP Stats DanSmigrod 18 2 daysMetroplex360 (1282): I live in Texas and 'Averge' is a closer approximation to how we say 'Average' than the real thing. I'm kidding - I need to fix that. :)
VR glasses symbol and MLS 3SevensStudio 18 2 daysHelen (94): Do any Canadian users know if this rule applies to the Canadian MLS system?
VR Experience srennick 4 2 daysVRealExperience (16): Thats going to be a given, but I think for right now being that Samsung dominating the Mobile market will all be within reasonable variance to each other. A cracked screen on a specific phone will greatly impact negatively, but in terms of manufacturer specs I would expect little variance.

How do you describe cloud hosting fees? Queen_City_3D 9 3 daysQueen_City_3D (556): @hometakes And how do you describe the hosting itself? Do you say something to the effect of, "the model is viewable on almost any device and is hosted in the cloud. There are ongoing costs for that hosting and so my prices cover 60 days free hosting and additional months cost $X?" or how do you actually describe why it isn't a one-time cost? I find that some folks don't understand what hosting is and why once the 3D model exists...

Shooting over 10,000sf Bill 2 3 daysNoel (91): I scanned a 4500 square meter (48,000sq foot!) Retail space in the past month. A lot of hours to scan, as I could only do when the shop was closed. I saved on the iPad as one scan. Then duplicated several times, and edited. One tour is 256 points and is walk through the whole shop. Then I have 5 other department scans. Each about 200-250 scans. Then via the Metatags I linked them together. Slow to process in the Matterport Cloud. However it...

Why Matterport Pros Sell Their Camera DanSmigrod 21 4 daysgrmngrl (16): @UserName that is great! Love the different transition options. I would know the difference, I don't think the average user would. Not 100% sure but I think you could add music to the kolor tour which is a definite plus.

"No internet connection" kaybaum 7 4 dayskaybaum (19): When talking to Matterport Support, they informed me that the "no internet connection" is something new added by Apple with the latest iOS version. It really had nothing to do with the issue I had yesterday. It was just a coincidence that it popped up at the same time I was having connectivity issues related to the home's wifi. Thanks for all the input! This forum has helped me tremendously over the last few months!
Challenges scanning This 60,000 sq ft Space DanSmigrod 3 4 daysDanSmigrod (5812): @tomjones2787 Yes and No. If the "only" thing the client wants is Object File (.obj), then yes, shooting it as one model should work (though I would not promise the client that). The model is so big that is may take a week to process or not process at all. Then, the likely 12gig file would need to be duplicated 2-4 times; delete scans (not in the master) and resubmit as multiple jobs. It's important to manage the client's...
