2018 is the Year of Google Street View DanSmigrod 3 11 daysMetroplex360 (7207): Maybe if Google can... #1) Improve navigation. Despite adding links between panos, most windows into Google Street View allow navigation in a Matterport-style manner (pancake navigation) without any regard to walls or connections that a pro has created. Arrow navigation still appears on mobile (which is the easiest way to navigate and not fly through walls from one end of a business to the other with one fateful click). #2) Launch...

Mattertag trouble jscottsmith 4 1 minfrstbubble (427): @jscottsmith I just viewed it and some of the tags are not working I think I found three on the back left wall. Some of the other ones did not instantly produce the video pictures either. It might be a page cache thing. You might want to give it some time for closer servers to cache the data to serve it more quickly. Also, have as many people as you can view the page so that it gets to more caching servers. If it doesn't work by end of the day...
Matterport High-End LiDAR Camera Competitor? DanSmigrod 39 6 minuteslauks (13): they showed walkthrough but only on a video (now gone, why??). In the end it does not seem as easy as they thought. that's why for the moment i do not see anything really on the market or to come soon. A scanner is one thing, the software platform the other. Leica is really one of the big boys in that domain, and they do not have a solution? They team up with Matterport, why? Where is Faro? Riegl? Trimble? Nothing on the horizon. I wonder...

Top VR Goggles Matt19 7 29 minutesimmersivespaces (124): @DavidHothersall I ordered 500 of them from Mushang Silicone & Plastic (+86-769-831-88549). If you have someone who speaks Chinese, it's much easier to negotiate with them. It took some haggling to get the price point.

Sorry Matterport frstbubble 5 55 minutesplorenz (31): We need to coordinate an organized effort to share our complaints. Thanks to Dan, this forum appears to be the largest collection of MSPs out there. I would love to help contribute by making a reference document that says where to best voice our complaints. Is there a consensus about how to do that? I've seen "contact your state & federal attorney general", "reach out to BBB", etc. I'm happy to compile email...

When you think it couldn’t get any worse grmngrl 35 2 hoursfrstbubble (427): @Metroplex360 I am in no way saying that your business model is a bad thing. It seems to work for you. Just a couple points here. We DO NOT charge a hosting fee. We charge a licensing fee. There is a big difference. We charge a fee to use the creative content we created with the Matterport system for a specific use. Mostly to sell and/or market a property for a specific time frame. Any use outside of that is not in our contract but could be...
Matterport Ecosystem: Class Action Lawsuit? DanSmigrod 5 2 hoursron0987 (781): @immersivespaces I agree with a lot of what you say but the analogy of Nikon does not work because we don't send Nikon our product to process. So great advice quit using MP what is the alternative and like you can see from my previous posts I am a big critic of MP and very vocal but MP has not folded based on mine or anyone else's posts here. Does MP listen maybe this is the largest user based informational resource for any MP users. The good...
Time To Talk Matterport Alternatives? immersivespaces 4 3 hoursron0987 (781): @808virtually but Zillow only hosts properties and is a resource and I can see them restrict MP but what is the reason for this? I did not see the episode but again I see businesses like Zillow as a hosting tool so why would you restrict what data you collect. To be a go to tool for the public you would want to collect as much data which in their case is properties to view. For an alternative resource I do no see anything at this point, not to...
[R&D] How to embed MP models in PowerPoint Tosolini 8 3 hoursfrstbubble (427): @immersivespaces Understand was just throwing a couple ideas out there that might work depending on the use case. As you stated these will not work in your use case. Hopefully, there will be a solution in the future.

WGAN-TV Zillow 3D Home tours for Newbies DanSmigrod 10 5 hoursrzphotoman (163): I was intrigued enough about the Zillow 3d concept that I signed up and purchased the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal to help create the videos. Seems a no brainer, but so did being MSP 2 months ago when I bought the Pro 2.
Leaving Matterport but still need scan host tombook 2 8 hoursDanSmigrod (14101): @tombook Return the camera. I will host your tour at no charge.

I am Refusing 2 Sign the Mattport TOS Change GeorgeK 20 9 hourseggardner (73): @Gerhard - I assume the end customer would subscribe to/buy the service! The end customer may not want to share it to the world and only have it for their own private viewing to make decisions. To me the issue isn't about them using Rooomie or any other service, but the fact that the terms have been changed and they're so one-side with zero thought being given to the MSP or their businesses - and we're being told to like it or lump it! The...

Is the Matterport MSP Program going away? immersivespaces 12 14 hoursPeterMcCready (148): From reality capture to reality distortion within 24 hours ;) Bill, I firmly believe you can do the right thing and turn this fiasco around: Let content creators OWN/CONTROL the destiny of their own content. Properly INCENTIVISE content creators to OPT-IN re Ecosystem. SUPPORT your MSPs, you've nothing to pitch without their paid contributions.

How to opt out of the Ecoystem???? BrianM 5 18 hoursBill (166): I'm not a fan of this whole ecosystem license (EL) myself. We had older client reaching out to Matterport directly asking them to reactivate a model which was taken down after the home sold over 2 years ago as per our hosting agreement. Apparently the house went back on the market and they needed the model. I was surprised with response from Matterport. Here is abbreviated ticket: Client: The link for the following address is not active any...

Matterport Co-Founder Matt Bell Leaving DanSmigrod 21 20 hoursMetroplex360 (7207): I think Matt would like anything that leads to an open platform but leaves power in the user's hands. I don't know Matt, but he seems to be that type of developer.

Matterport Sales Team Farming Your Clients? DanSmigrod 1 21 hoursDanSmigrod (14101): Hi All, On more than one occasion, Members of the WGAN Forum have alleged that Matterport Camera Sales people are farming their clients from using their recently published Matterport Spaces 3D Tours. See an example from today below my signature (Thursday, 22 February 2018). I simply can not imagine that Matterport leadership thinks that this is happening and does not condone this in anyway if a Matterport Sales Person is violating its...
Get Ready for a New Feature Roll-Out! Metroplex360 34 21 hoursMetroplex360 (7207): So that new feature I'm sitting back and waiting for seems to further away than I expected despite being ready to roll out with assets already being generated. I suppose it will be beta'd first.
Matterport Tour behind a pay wall? Anyone? tocha 5 21 hourstocha (121): Thank you for that link! This is what I am afraid of - it would kill the whole deal This is a possibility but I think this is a feature that Matterport needs to add along with the white label. I have many commercial type clients that need to have secure and private access.
MP Ecosystem: Post Publicly or Privately? DanSmigrod 4 22 hoursMatt19 (46): I heard a lot of complaints about Matterport before finally pulling the trigger at the end of the year(2017)! Now they come out with a 1,500 dollar cheaper camera less than two months. Have to wonder who is making business decisions like this?! Term of service change like this too?!? Have to wonder!
Matterport Ecosystem: "Wish List" for MSPs DanSmigrod 9 23 hoursrzphotoman (163): I’m new with Matterport...less than 2 months...and I was excited about my future with the system. Now, not so much. I’m wondering what I got myself into. This whole thing is confusing to me but it reminds me of what Uber is doing to their drivers, building their business on their backs to get to autonomous cars and then leave them hanging. I realize it’s not the same but feels just as sleezy to me. Hearing about your customers being...
Matterport Ecosystem>Deleted Models Deleted? DanSmigrod 4 1 dayDanSmigrod (14101): Hi All, From my post a year ago: (see text in bold) ---- And, this ... While I know that Matterport reads every word of the We Get Around Forum, it’s unlikely that they will respond to these three questions: 1. Do you plan to offer an API that uses “our” content without compensation to us? 2. What are you planning to do with “our” content? 3. If we delete a Matterport Space, do you really delete it? Or, do you still keep it?...
Matterport Ecosystem: A Must Read DanSmigrod 1 1 dayDanSmigrod (14101): Hi All, A "must read" from a year ago: ✓ Why Google Will Acquire Matterport Highlights What is not so obvious is the value over time of Matterport Service Providers scanning the world of indoor spaces. In x years from now, Matterport will reach sufficient critical mass to license an API to its Matterport Spaces library. Imagine for example, Realtor.com – a Matterport alliance partner – including with all...
