Official Video>2017 Street View Summit Recap DanSmigrod 5 1 monthDanSmigrod (10930): @Metroplex360 I did 360º video interviews with the Insta360 Air attached to my Samsung Galaxy S6. This version of the camera is not Google Street View Ready (at the very least, because it is 3K). I do not know if a firmware can make it 4K). Instal360 announced that their cameras will all be Google Street View Ready. I do not know if this requires a hardware change. While I could have uploaded the 360º videos to YouTube directly from the...
An Amazing Magic Carpet Ride of Matterport DanSmigrod 4 1 monthDanSmigrod (10930): @LetMe3D Thank you for your super-kind note. I could imagine Matterport offering a Pro non-branded white-label version (when other companies show the way...) They could make more money and the Pro community would be happy. Yes. The We Get Around Network Forum - is a Community - eager to give/get help. Thanks for acknowledging that and for being part of the giving/getting help. Best, Dan
Matterport Pros when do you get paid & why? DanSmigrod 3 1 minLewisBishop (160): We submit our invoice in an email that is sent directly after delivery. Invoice is due upon receipt. We do not pre-invoice (sending invoice before model delivery) as when it was tried the process generated push back from first time clients and we found that some shoots required an adjustment due to the clients wanting other areas/building scanned. Current process seems to work for us in our market. It's the rare exception that the invoices...
Matterport & Google Trusted Photographer Pro VTLV 8 38 minutesRichierichks (160): @Metroplex360 What Social Media platform has those requirements? I only know Facebook's which are- What's the largest 360 photo I can upload? The largest full 360 photo you should upload is 6000 x 3000 pixels (18 megapixels). You can upload larger photos, but there are diminishing returns past that size, and you will probably not see an appreciable difference in output.

Matterport bought iGuide google ad PetraSoderling 14 4 hourshometakes (379): Post your work with your clients details on social media and it's fair game. Essentially, it's almost the same as putting their contact details on a spread sheet and sending it to you. I post to Facebook but never the clients name. Of course, it's easy enough to find the listing agent who has the property listed with an address. If you are servicing your clients right, you'll keep them. I have some leave I'm sure because someone else...
Tripod leg captured Briski2208 5 5 hoursjustinv (511): The only two choices I know of is delete the few scans and rescan or just leave it this time. This camera is a small learning curve. Yes it is easy to use, but I have been scanning almost a year and still figure out little tips. If you know that the legs will not show in your normal position, but unsure when you change it for a small hall or maybe to dodge a mirror, just use the preview button in capture app. It is near the delete scan...
Dropping like a Rock? More like a Meteor! hometakes 9 12 hoursGerhard (88): I agree with you all. But remember this is technology. Its like when you buy a laptop. As soon as you take it out off the shop it's outdated and the price starts to drop. How would you work out the depreciation of your camera and have you broken even and showing a profit after year 1 or 2. Think about professional photographers whose gear can run into the thousands. How long do they take to breakeven? Yes they can use their gear longer but...

WSJ: Offers on Homes Purchased Sight Unseen DanSmigrod 6 15 hoursHarlanHambright (832): My tours have been responsible for 3 such sales, one in 2 days. The problem is how to get the MP link into the eyes of the potential out-of-town purchasers.
How many scans to become proficient? dtavres 7 20 hoursjustinv (511): Proficient? Are you talking about scanning with absolute fewest scans to get the idea about property? Or scanning every nook and cranny to complete the doghouse? I use the first method. I don't feel it is necessary to scan pantry, closets and other small spaces. I like to let people use their imagination on some places because I believe people don't use their imagination enough! After a few scans, you will know what is necessary and what...
How do I turn off this model?!?! Queen_City_3D 10 22 hoursVTLV (418): Bingo, you want those stats on your website. Sending them to Matterport doesn't help your traffic at all. Once you got a template hammered out, it's a cinch. I like the WP Matterport Shortcode Gallery Embed plugin if you're using Wordpress - Shoutout to @Metroplex360. Good luck!
Challenging task from Client - Help needed! DmitriyReev 1 1 dayDmitriyReev (31): Hi all, I've made already 2 3D showcases for one very big restaurant group. These 2 restaurants are located in skyscraper at height of 350m.

Client want to make incredible 3D tour with different...
Matterport: Personal data and authority DanSmigrod 3 1 daydtavres (58): I'm also not a lawyer, but I'm very doubtful that Matterport will ever sue a photographer who: a) Bought a camera for $3,000+, b) Paid for the processing and hosting, c) Took the photos, d) Sold the final product to clients The bad press Matterport would get would likely KILL sales of new cameras, which would also cause a potential buyout from Google/Facebook/etc. to be looked at twice, AND would likely also KILL the market for Real...

Any news on a back-up solution? Wanderfish360 5 2 daysjfantin (916): Thank you @Wanderfish360. It seems that Matterport will have to find a Backup solution very fsst (using an iPad as a storage device is quite expensive and a nonsense from any point of view)
Sotheby's: 10% of Listings Include 3D Tour DanSmigrod 6 2 daysGlennTremain (874): Its out of their hands. They have an obligation to uphold the marketing standards of the company they hang their license with. Show them they are not upholding their agreement with sotheby's to comply with the marketing brand they have and without this they look like [insert local brokerage name THEY think are beneath them and don't deserve a sotheby's type of client here] Then if they are still dense use then tell them to google "altman...

Matterport Pro2 Camera, day 2 Results HarlanHambright 6 3 daysHarlanHambright (832): old system would have been way over an hour. i just extracted a still from yesterday's scan for a view i missed the client wanted. it may be a viable substitute. haven't put it thru the paces yet. there's potential. i'm down with the speed, worth it.
Outside porch alignment trick HarlanHambright 4 3 daysJonJ (859): The use of the mirror tool for scanning open and closed doors was brought up by @marswalker some time ago (maybe over a year now). I believe he used the mirror tool to mark both the opening of the door and the door itself, if it opened into the room you are scanning from. Kudos to @marswalker for pioneering the use of the mirror tool for opening and closing doors! here's the thread

Matterport Syndication: a Blessing or Curse? DanSmigrod 19 3 daysDanSmigrod (10930): @hometakes @VTLV Well, it's obvious that Matterport had studied this post - and @hometakes emails. They recognize the problems and are still thinking through the permutations and tactical solutions. So, I would do my best to be patience. 1-one thousand ... 2-one thousands ... 3-one thousand. Are we there yet? I'm sure Matterport will get this fixed and it will just take some time. I could imagine that everyone at Matterport thought that...
MatterTags HEX Code to Match Brand Colors? DanSmigrod 14 3 daysDanSmigrod (10930): @3SixtyNow Great observation, though I believe the tactics for "fixing" - always pulsing - would not be my first choice. Perhaps: 1. Option to have pulsing always off 2. pulsing only the first 30 seconds of tour 3. pulsing only for the first time the user looks at any Matterport tour Other thoughts about how Matterport could help guide the newbie into the experience?
