Matterport Capture App: How to Log-in? DouglasMeyers 9 2 hoursHelen (136): @DouglasMeyers I may be wrong but I believe this is a firmware update not a capture app update so the capture app stays the same.

Is Matterport the right solution for hotels? DanSmigrod 2 5 hoursUserName (328): Is the question "Matterport vs another VR solution" or "VR vs no VR?" Coincidentally I've been reviewing a ton of Google Business View / Inside View experiences lately. I've studied restaurants, wedding venues, clubs and hotels. People at Google or Trusted Google photographers are even scanning entire shopping malls. I recently walked through one of using the Gear VR version of Street View. I'm not sure how many...

You can also find a ton of different networking groups on Always have your...

scanning during night DmitriyReev 6 12 hoursDanSmigrod (6589): @Tourspace Welcome to the Forum. I hold my iPhone and shake it so that flashlight is never always in the same place in the field of view. I am "painting light" into the 3D Tour. I rotate behind the camera; making sure that that the Camera is not casting a shadow into the field of view. Does that help? Best, Dan

Change Background Color Dollhouse & FP view Dolloff 5 19 hoursMetroplex360 (1828): @Dolloff - After spending 3 hours of work on this today (during which Matterport bumped the version to v2.12 and removed the 'Showcase Automation API' that I've been playing with) -- I can turn the background to SOLID BLACK. Or change the background to a wireframe sphere. I have tried so many things and have yet to find a way to change it to transparent. They key with a 'Three.js' app like Showcase is to edit the 'Scene' and I'm not finding...

360 views extraction possible? Wonderdawg 5 20 hoursDanSmigrod (6589): @Wonderdawg Unfortunately, Matterport told developers that offering Panos from Matterport Spaces was in violation of their terms of service. This functionality is completely doable - -and multiple 3rd party developers would like to offer this service - if Matterport allowed this. Dan PS We Get Around uses a Ricoh Theta S to fill this void...
I-Guide versus Inside Maps RichardBurt 9 23 hoursKevin_iGuide (28): The cost comparison is a very curious topic for us as we have the run the numbers between iGuide and our competitors and see iGuide as a better cost alternative. How do you build your direct cost per unit / tour? We simply use Back office Processing Charges and Photography costs. We then look at the capacity for shoots per week. It would be great to know how you determine your revenue versus cost per tour.
  Used Matterport Cameras For Sale on eBay DanSmigrod 23 1 dayDanSmigrod (6589): A Forum Member writes ... --- "Thanks - I appreciate it - with prices in the mid $2000 range it seems cheap to buy used - regardless of warranty - in fact I could probably get a square trade warranty that last longer. There have also been new selling on ebay for mid $3000 but I get ignored when I ask if they carry warranty. Not sure what thats all about. All different sellers with low feedback. Cant imagine its matterport...
Matterport Schematic Floor Plans for $14.99 DanSmigrod 10 1 dayMetroplex360 (1828): I really doubt it. I do think they must have standardized (or their supplier has standardized) items like toilets, ovens, etc and it's possible that certain elements are automated. There's a folder for every model that contains the files that are sent off for floorplan fulfillment. The contents now require an authentication token to access, presumably via a special account level. semantic/floorplan_000.dxf Simple Vector...

How Can we see offline Matterport models? walk360 3 1 dayMetroplex360 (1828): In addition, if you have an Apple TV and use AirPlay, you should be able to 'cast' the tour to a television or separate display.
Capture App Backup/transfer xavierchardon 11 1 dayjfantin (292): Sooner or later Matterport will have to offer a solution to the backup problem. It is unrealistic to think that we will have to keep all our models in our iPad. As a simple backup storage device the iPad is pretty expensive! Having a backup of all your files in your computer or in iCloud doesn´t mean that in the end you can exceed your own iPad's capacity. As @frstbubble has explained, you can only restore the content of the iPad but...

Virtually staging the Matterport 3D model JonJ 24 1 dayUserName (328): I like it even though it's not real furniture. I'd like to see that in VR. You even have a fly-thru from a dollhouse that continues on into the real model rooms. "How do you get this back into a real Matterport Showcase or Core VR? Or, will what you create be a stand-alone experience?" I thought thought Matterport's Showcase main script overlaid captured panoramic images over a model when you changed positions. I'm no model...
Corporate Clients May Pre-Pay You for 2017 DanSmigrod 2 2 daysTosolini (751): This is true, corporate clients may have last minute money to spend before end of fiscal year. Some others frown upon pre-paying for future services, because internal policies only allow paying for completed jobs. Which means a lot of last minute scans. Still good though.
Is there any ways solving this light splash? yoon2366 1 2 daysyoon2366 (34): This kind of light splash and matterport's low performance at low light setting is something the matterport has to improve as soon as possible. Aren't we all receiving requests for filming some low-light setting areas already?

Creepy scans Radie842 6 2 daysBaxter (118): Yep had a very strange one a couple of months back. An old Victorian former Inn/Coach house that was undergoing some structural work before being sold. I was the only one in there on two separate occasions and I think the emptiness and setting started playing tricks on my mind because I heard a few inexplicable things that I had no choice but to ignore. It was the upstairs front bedrooms that gave me the heebie jeebies particularly. Then after...
