Web Content Security. John29 7 4 daysMetroplex360 (6184): @John29 You are indeed correct about Flash. I used Pano2VR for many many years when the flash option was optimal and the HTML5 was a fallback for the iPad :). Injecting domain control into the Javascript and then obfusticating the javascript code is something that Garden Gnome Software really might consider implementing rather than having users do it... an example of a service that does this is: http://javascriptobfuscator.com/ If someone is...

Matterport operator job offer/salary Mr_Mugen84 7 10 daysNerdvice451 (10): I worked for my many years as a wage slave. I would tell anyone who has the drive and the talent to be independent to stay away from being someone's elses employee. The vast majority of the employers out there (not all) want to do two things: use you and make a lot of money off of you. We work really hard and spend a lot hours with our business but at the end of the day, the money we make is ours. We are not getting a slice of the pie... we...

Problem with Multiple Scans for 1 space.... lcorbett 5 13 dayslcorbett (22): I think I will just have to re-shoot it for free...the problem is they have moved and now there is no furniture in the rooms already shot. :( I don't know if anyone else notices this, but with the Pro2, the pictures come out distorted when you try to get a good shot of a room. A countertop looks too long, one window looks bigger, etc. I fixed this on a few of the photos, but she was stating that they like the DSLR pictures that have the...
Which Tripod and ipad to buy? TechnicTouch 2 15 daysMetroplex360 (6184): The MT055XPRO4 folds smaller and has 4 sections and costs $218 on Amazon right now. The MT055PRO3 costs $180.05. All other features are the same. Between the two, I'd get the XPRO3. Personally, I have the MT055XPRO3, which extends 5" higher, is the same folded length as the MT055XPRO3 (20-24'9") and has a more sturdy build and supports more weight (not necessary). What I like about the MT055XPRO3 is that by extending the bottom...

I can produce a 4 page 16 image with text in around 5 minutes. Happy to show you how if needed

Pricing Help for a 10Ksq.ft. preschool W/Gym 3SixtyNow 2 1 monthDanSmigrod (12655): @3SixtyNow Consider two fees: 1. Shooting/Post Production 2. Monthly or annual hosting Make your money on the monthly or annual hosting so that what you would have charged for a 1x shoot is paid back in 18 months and then all monies after that is profit. "Hosting/Maintenance" (since you will edit MatterTags, adding videos, etc.) Dan

Matterport Pro2 3D Camera Scan Samples Metroplex360 20 1 monthMetroplex360 (6184): @JCHAFE Yes, they are better. HDR on windows is still not DSLR quality. I wonder if Matterport just blindly takes each image and HDRs -- rather than spot metering ... that would be interesting if it would spot meter for the brightest and darkest areas.

Annotations/White label MP Tours Working Now Gerhard 4 2 monthsGerhard (178): @metroplex360 thanks for the comments much appreciated. For some unexplained reason, they started working. I will keep an eye on it. It's not a legal thing, just the company has all their content eg Videos players tailored to fit their look and is all white labeled. I will meet with them again to go over this objection. ( I also had the problem with a hotel chain that nearly gave me the contract 30 + hotels, but they want to host it themselves...
What is the point of being a MSP? 3SixtyNow 20 2 monthsBale100 (166): Agree, price fixing does not work. Each market is different and we should live in a free market in economy where choice, quality, differentiation and availability determine prices. We know there's availability & choice in most markets, however the quality & differentiation maybe to difficult to spot for an untrained eye i.e. new prospects. Hence Matterport grading & client feedback to help make it clear.

Can you create and offline gallery in VR? tomasdunbar 1 2 monthstomasdunbar (70): Hi all, I recently created a collections vr gallery for a large project I just finished. It was a museum that is split into 20 seperate 3D tours. The collections vr gallery worked great as the client wanted the galleries labelled 1 - 20 in sequence so a viewer could view one vr tour and then press back on the gear vr headset and then go into the next gallery. They need them stored offline for conferences and events. I downloaded them to...

Minimum Upload speed required melanietp 9 2 monthsmelanietp (4): Thank you wlee1684. Besides the upload of the scans, is there any other time I would need to rely on decent internet speeds? How about the Realtors? Do they have to download to their computers and then upload into MLS etc (my ignorance is showing). They won't want a painful internet experience. Thanks again!
Strange transitions in guided walk through Lizzg 9 2 monthsjustinv (982): @Lizzg I guess the issue is on both cameras from updates on Matterports side. I have not noticed it before when scanning outside on my Pro1. @stepbystep3d I try and scan outdoors with my camera every time a house has a nice outdoor space. I always ask about the home and make sure to be there at the right time!

Matterport Pro2 Shipping Issues?! runsweetlew 4 2 monthsrunsweetlew (7): So a not very clearly understood (at least to me) aspect of ordering was that if you took them up on their upgrade program, you got put at the end of the line. If you ordered new, you went to the top of the list. I was opting for the trade in program as I doubted the original would be worth as much as they were offering me. Then when I offered to buy a new one and the trade in one to get it sooner, they refused to put me any higher on the list....

What I am saying to you, its not worth your time or energy seeking your own legal advice. Unless you have a friend that does this type of attorney work, its going to cost you at least $150 to talk about the possibility of a case. And if he tells you yes, you have a case, its not going...

It seems the vast majority want to go solo when it comes to pricing and I respect that. I'm an idealist though and want every 3D pro to succeed. It's still early enough to set benchmarks and there's no precedent so in my simple mind I figure, why not? Many will disagree though and I don't think I've ever had a positive response to the idea of agreeing on minimum...

Which is the best Camera??? fragache 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): The iGuide by Planitar excels in providing a panoramic tour with a map overlay that can be produced in very little time on-site. For businesses that are scaling and serving many Realtors who want a more affordable option, you can be very successful by choosing iGuide over Matterport. If you want a 3D Tour that requires about an hour on-site per 1500 SQFT (my average), then Matterport is your only option for a 3D tour with a floorplan and...

Ideally we want to use the PRO2 as much as possible to give clients the better imagery when we're able, but in a pinch we still think the PRO1 will be okay. @tocha If you plan to continue down this path I'd say order the PRO2, and as you aren't currently doing enough to warrant having to...

AirBNB & VRBO srennick 4 4 monthsChemistrydoc (313): Unfortunately, no. I've been doing single page web listings for VRBO folks. They used to allow some modest number of external links. As of a month ago, these too have been removed. I've been offering to make little walkthrough videos from their tours and uploading these as YouTube videos. That's about all that can be done, sadly, because VRBO is HUGE here.

Contacted by other company for scans 3SixtyNow 11 4 monthsExpertise (133): We own a busy RE photo company. We have subcontracted out Matterport to a local guy for the past few months. We received a 20% discount, which was OK, but not great IMO. I think he was being a little greedy and shortsighted. I really wanted 30% or 35%. So... We have a new Matterport camera on order now. If he had given me 35% off we probably would have continued subcontracting.

VR Listing ( http://www.vrlisting.com/), a Canadian MSP, had an amazing opportunity to scan the Krispy Kreme sets used in the Power Rangers movie. After seeing MatterPlus, an experimental events-based platform for Matterport that I created, they discovered that they could embed videos and photos into the tour. They presented a full proof-of-concept to Krispy Kreme and Lion's Gate -- who loved...

Effect of Camera Height Richierichks 15 5 monthscraigsauer (964): I'm just finding this thread as I'm searching for threads about verticals. I'm hoping to get some opinion from Matterport with regards to this issue now that they are really marketing the new camera as providing sufficiently high quality captures to use for real estate marketing stills. I'm pretty unconvinced, primarily because of the issue of the verticals in the Matterport images. Whenever I capture images (primarily for Guided Tours) I...

While a Guided Tour is playing, you will notice a gentle pan when viewing each Highlight. The direction of this pan is determined by the preceding transition, and follows the same viewport movement. For example, if the viewport turns to the right when moving from Highlight A to Highlight B, the pan will continue moving to the right. You can use this to...

Preschool Marketing Dept. Concerns 3SixtyNow 3 5 monthsOpenHouseOptics (55): Statistics show that people go where they are familiar - if anything, them seeing it online will encourage a site visit AND increase enrollment because parents feel like they KNOW the environment. It's based on the same psychology we use when teaching fire safety or mass panic situations, look for the exits that are OPPOSITE of where you came in because people will go the way they are most familiar.

The quality of image is much better than matterport but it still felt more 360 than 3d.

HDR BackUp Q Outside Matterport Services VTLV 3 5 monthsHarlanHambright (1027): 1. It is redundant to shoot RAW for HDR. Except for tweaking color temp, the HDR process is giving you as much dynamic range that RAW will, so shooting in-camera JPEG will alleviate a lot of storage issues. And you can color correct a jpeg just as easily. 2. After you have processed your HDR files, you can delete the original camera files. I have only on a few occasions re-processed old camera files and that was because early HDR was pretty...

What's up with Google Street view App? LetMe3D 2 5 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): @LetMe3D Street View is more compelling to some ppl than Matterport b/c it integrates with Google. Matterport, however, is a superior experience for all of the reasons you've mentioned. What system did you post your Street View tour with? If you did it recently, I believe you can import it with GoThru.co and edit it. I've posted tour with the Street View App and had to remove them all and rebuild them as it did a terrible job.

3D Showcase vs Direct Sunlight Conditions matthew 6 7 monthsJonJ (1237): I agree with Douglas with regards to how this scan is possible. By my estimation, the camera is set to a height of only 3 ft 6 inches. The scan positions are also very close together. The third thing that makes this possible is the fact that all of the surfaces available are solid. This allows for sufficient structures to allow for correlation of scan points. Also important to note is the fact that the dollhouse view is very incomplete....

Instead, they offer this "external link" option that has to be approved by someone there at VRBO. Once approved, these links are then buried (in my opinion) way down the page. The ideal solution would be as you describe....adding a link near the beginning of the text used to describe a property. If I've missed...
mp2sqft.com - New interface... working? ArchimedStudio 6 7 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): MP2SQFT uses data that Matterport generated from the patched OBJ that is seen in showcase. The patched OBJ is the OBJ generated by the tour with areas that were missing data 'filled in'. JuMP uses the downloadable OBJ file without the patched data. That's why there's a discrepancy. I'm fairly confident that both JuMP and Matterport are calculating SQFT based on surface area of the OBJ files. If JuMP were to intercept the OBJ file used by...
RV Dealership ArtisticConcepts 9 7 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): Wow, I was proposing much less to RV Dealerships as my pricepoint on smaller tours is $0.20/sqft. Smaller RVs would clock in at 100SQFT, and $20 didn't make sense, so I established a flat rate lowest pricepoint. The example by @ArtisticConcepts is VERY nice. The RVs I shot were VERY small and Matterport struggled to shine in the small spaces. I felt that using a Ricoh Theta S and building a custom tour would be better for that client. With...

InsideMaps vs Matterport Mario 20 7 monthsDanSmigrod (12655): @dorlando My impression is that all Spaces, including homes, can now be published to Google Street View.

Should Real Estate Agents Buy a Matterport? DanSmigrod 10 7 monthsDanSmigrod (12655): Hi All, Here's my take on the original question. There are two kinds of real estate agents that buy a Matterport Cameras: 1. Real Estate Agents that are photographers (or their spouse is a photographer) – they want to shoot their own listings and offer Matterport as a side business. (Many, many members of the Forum) 2. Real Estate Agents that are not photographers and just need to shoot x listings to justify the expense. For category 1,...

When I start a scan I know the camera goes clock wise so I know that the spin will start pretty much where I started it at the location. I have noticed when you use walk thru and the pictures are in use when it goes to the next scan it starts where I started it, sooo don't start it on a wall or what not and point the starting position where you think it will look best at the start. Good Luck...
Best Camera Height? Helen 5 8 monthsaristepp (58): I agree completely. I started shooting at the recommended 60 inches and I found that I shot a lot of ceiling space and that it was so high that my photos were oddly lobbed off at the bottom. 60 inches is just too high. 4.5 to 5 is right. No matter how high the ceiling is, you don't want lobbed off images and I sell a lot of packages, image and walk through.

Controlling Panning for Highlight Reel aznparkranger 2 8 monthsShowcas3D (145): @aznparkranger did you ever get a response on this? this is what I found on MP's website: Extra: Fine-tune Panning While a Guided Tour is playing, you will notice a gentle pan when viewing each Highlight. The direction of this pan is determined by the preceding transition, and follows the same viewport movement. For example, if the viewport turns to the right when moving from Highlight A to Highlight B, the pan will continue moving to the...

Thats open source VR same capabilities as the Oculus upgradeable unlike the Oculus and evolving quickly with hand gesture etc oh and for much less money. Check the distributors out RazerZone. This should be on the radar of pcmag surely.
Hosting sensitive imagery Briski2208 2 8 monthshometakes (709): No can do. No other option other than to host with them. Their answer to it is to not scan sensitive stuff in the first place. P.S. You own the rights but can't do anything outside of what they offer.
Recreate Floorplans WindyCityDrones 2 8 monthsdavemckean (46): I use Visio for a simple floor plan program. You can export to .svg or .dwg. It has pre installed furniture etc. Not as detailed as some dedicated programs but a quick learning curve and simple to use.

As I mentioned I do like your system and wish I could offer it as a cost effective solution to Matterport but that is not possible. Lets brake it down by comparing a modest 11 scans per month on an average 3000sqft homes for a year. With features of schematic floor plan and 3D model. My plan is...

US tax on Matterport Purchase MichaelHammond 4 9 monthsGarySnyder (1321): You're getting ripped off mate. Even at the full list price of $4500 that comes out to £3591. The camera has been on offer in the States and Canada anywhere from $600 to $1,000 off list price so don't let the UK reseller rip you off. You may be better off buying it through the States and having one of the many companies in the States that receive goods on you behalf and then forward them on to you.

However, 1) I have to remove something that is in about 70% of the shots, and 2) I'm actually paying for the upload. I want to remove all but one scan and start from that point. Today's lighting will be very close. Nothing has moved. Technically, things should work. I was asking purely from a "Matterport rules" point of view, and because I'm basically a cheapskate!

Ugly doll house Radie842 2 9 monthsQueen_City_3D (1246): It needs a few additional scans and some additional trimming.

HUGE job pricing advice Charlieshoe 2 10 monthsJamie (1549): I did a 52,000 sq ft job and charged them 7c per sq ft. It was divided over 4 scans. 52,000 is a lot of data as well and you will most likely have issues with the app crashing.I'd plan it out carefully and quote accordingly.

New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 11 monthsAlex_iGuide (235): With more scans you collect more data and, as a minimum, that data will result in a denser point cloud and finer mesh. That will increase computation time and storage requirements, so MP must draw a line somewhere for practical reasons and may limit how dense the point cloud is and how fine the mesh is that they store and make available for download. If you leap-frog along the wall with more scans, the overall room length error will be smaller...

It is a very large space, so I was thinking about starting with the walls first and then filling in the...

Matterport Camera Error Sensor Fault PANOPTICMOTION 1 11 monthsPANOPTICMOTION (19): Hi, We have had an error message showing - Hardware Error - Sensor Fault.... The camera will not not work even after rebooting several times. Has anyone had any experience with this? The camera has not been dropped or abused before anyone asked. It has however been working almost non stop for the last 7 weeks, so not sure if its just not built to last as a full on commercial tool!?

Initially I made the mistake of trying to hide the name Matterport. It didnt take off as customers were confused with all the choices. The market has been saturated for decades with '3D Tours' and '360 Tours' products. It was not until we started including the name Matterport that business started to boom.

Shooting as single/multiple model bckz2020 4 1 yearhoangatuan (4): @ bckz2020: I used to have the same thinking as you as the idea of putting all the rooms into 1 model does reducing our MP processing costs. Otherwise, we might be spend several USD 19 for many small room models (sometime a model might have less than 10 scans). Doing the way of Jamie still costs us several USD 19 for small room models, right? I just came out with this idea: Most of hotels has identical floor layout from room floor, right?...

How long does it take you to scan ?? ScanMan 12 1 yearpirusan (184): Forgot to comment on the issue of this thread. I average about 1,300 sf per hour on my iPad Air2 I also manage expectations like @DanSmigrod I tell the customer to allow 1.5 hours per 1,000 sf. I do double scan bathrooms at normal height and at lower height to avoid the camera to show on mirrors in the final Space.
Thumbnail Image / Starting Point image KateKratochvil 3 1 yearKateKratochvil (31): Tom, it looks like this has been resolved. Chose a snapshot to be your starting point. Once you "publish" and leave the Workshop, you will see all of the snapshots next to the "workshop" entry point. Click on the one you want to use as your display shot, and select it to be the Thumbnail. I use a snapshot of the dollhouse. Hope that helps!
Couple probably simple questions Lmccauley57 2 1 yearQueen_City_3D (1246): 1) You can hide scan locations in workshop. Just click on the scan you want to remove and then click hide. Just know that those circles are there to let users know where they can navigate to. If you hide the scan location then individuals will not be able to navigate to that spot in the tour. 2) When you're in the tour you can hit "p" to change some of the navigation speeds, but I believe that has default settings and suspect you'd...

Yacht issues Gregclicks 3 1 yearron0987 (682): The 360 photos will turnout way better during that time frame also. But if you do the whole model below deck you can do that at anytime, the evening shots would just take a few and that would reduce the afternoon evening time. But this would require more time on your part. Just my input. I also agree with Glen, but don't let the drinking impact running the camera. Ron

Panorama/photosphere as a Wordpress Backgr. alsangio 10 1 yearUserName (583): Some say jQuery can do anything. That may not be true but it, or regular JavaScript, can scroll a background for you. You could put your panoramic image in an HTML div and animate it. Here's an example of someone doing that with a few lines of jQuery code ( link) (the moving image is at the bottom of that Web page). As you can see, jQuery makes it possible to use a ridiculously small amount of code to produce this animation effect. If you don't...

Top 3 Questions to Ask Matterport Leadership DanSmigrod 11 1 yearMark (4): Hi CKC, We were working on offline app for Win/Mac using the Panotour/Krpano VRs files. The need for making separate app was the fact that Panotour Viewer does not support embedding mp4/audio and pdf files that was used by custom interactive VRs tours. Does anyone know if there is possibility to host Matterport files offline? If possible, we could port the app to support the Matterport files for offline viewing. Thanks Mark 360viewlabs Team...
Have you got problems with Mattertags? Wyzlo 3 1 yearWyzlo (100): Thanks I don't want to be seen from more angles, as is a tag por each piece of art. so putting the extension it only will make a more dirty model. My problem is that they move suddenly, and they apear in a other part of the space. not where I put them.

Dan- "Like sunlight, the water in the whirlpools absorbs the infrared light. The infrared (IR) mesh is used to create the dollhouse view. Drain the water in the whirlpools - or use a whirlpool water cover - and the IR would...
If Matterport Released a newer camera... Metroplex360 14 1 yearDanSmigrod (12655): @Metroplex360 I haven't had time to study LinkedIn for EXISTING employment titles.

Ceiling height and trim jntooker 3 1 yearjntooker (109): Thanks @danmorell, I will try that. I wonder if maybe I can temporarily move the suspect scans one at a time to a different floor temporarily - in theory, I should be able to see which scan is offending. I have a bad feeling the offending scan is the one directly in front of the front door, though, and in that case if I delete it I will have no circle at the entrance. :( I may just have to live with it.
Trade Show Advice Acomeau15 5 1 yearProperty3dNZ (505): @Acomeau15 Hi there! We had a booth at a conference earlier this year and hired a large touch screen tv which was incredible! It meant that people had the ability to interact with our MP scans. We also had a swivel seat and had a VR headset - after we had them interacting with the screen we showed them the next step and had them sit down and experience the headset. It worked brilliantly!!

I have been fighting with Wix for 3 months on this issue. Their response has always been that they cannot offer support on issues with the code that has not been tested by Wix. I contacted Matterport to see if there is some sort of workaround but they too could not help. It's disappointing as I've spent months...
Parameter to take away the info display bar? DanSmigrod 3 1 yearhometakes (709): Yes, I was also wondering that. It only makes sense to have a link generator. People, get on board with this. The more Matterport hears this, the more likely they will implement it.
How do you respond to this valid concern? pixelray 20 1 yearpixelray (316): Wow...got home from work and found this thread grew a lot. THanks to you all for your input. Just to set the record straight, I was never concerned about MP going out business. I was just looking for options to help answer the question about if MY company went out of business and what would happen to all the models in my account and what would I do with them. One question from a referred client asked me this and it just got me thinking. I...

You know Matterport does not give out good opening advice (or maybe I did not see it) on what you really need to do to start this business using their stuff... but it is getting better on my end my agents love this new tech...

Navigation through the property was smooth and natural. There were a couple of areas that could have used additional scan points to fill in for the dollhouse view.

The mothership has landed! leeverdon 14 1 yearfranmts (172): @leeverdon This model has 443 scans in workshop. The new iPad should save you some time, 10-20%. But the main problem is the distance between walls.. it was huge 35-40 meters with no obstacles in the way.. so it was very difficult to find a good configuration for the boxes and had to go up and down with the camera uncountable times. Happened many misaligned points as well that if I didn't pay attention would create several errors in the model....

It will not change as though you are able to look through the window into the yard or patio space. This would be the desired effect if there are no scans on the opposite side of the window.

Matterport appears to be doing something that involves combinging or filtering the panos together with the model somehow, and it is causing errors like this. I see this error a lot around toilets and countertops. I think the model of the counter/vanity edge is interfering with the image of the toilet behind it. I see similar...

Tunnel project alignment problems karlpallas 5 1 yearJamie (1549): Like Carlos said the problem is with the similarities between the scans. The software is confused with where to stitch it. It may help if you have a decent sized item to place in the scan so it can have something to differentiate between. Then go into workshop and disable it. It's a bit of messing around but it may be an option. We had the same issue today while Scanning a horse training arena.
Tours on VRBO, VHR, and AirBnB BrianM 25 1 yearKen100 (22): Two questions. 1. Why does not Matterport host a platform for real estate listing? 2.

Full Screen in showcase FuturePhotography 4 1 yearRobinLycka (703): Hm, not sure why it´s not showing. My best bet would be that it´s something about your current CSS on the page.

Embedresonsively has a slightly different iframe structure than matterports.

Square Footage Off On Floor Plans, MP Issue? tydowning 7 1 yearccctucker (154): This was talked about in a thread a long time ago. The scanner isn't designed for fine measurement in inches, but in feet. Most of the things that can alter the number is based on the infrared. If the light is bright, the points are collected at different distances, causing the mesh to take an average of distance over several points. If they are off on both opposite edges, that could double the error rate. I tell people you can measure for...

360 Photo stitching errors craigsauer 12 1 yearcraigsauer (964): It occurred to me that maybe this is just an issue of economics. I had been assuming that Matterport's dramatically improved processing time for models over the last few monhts was a result of some fancy algorithmic improvement. But now I'm guessing that they decided they were paying Amazon (or whoever is doing their cloud computing for them) too much and decided to reduce quality somewhat to save processing time and thus cost.

How to Add our own Logo? Wyzlo 14 1 yearVTLV (850): Stick with the promise of making the single property website pages for the agents and get more clicks to your site as they share your page or link. Keyword up your site for now as being the Only Matterport Service Provider in your country for now. Perhaps later you can get traffic from their sharing the link and make some coin when the opportunity for your logo comes around. My agent pages look like this
Split 2nd level craigsauer 8 1 yearjosephthomp (61): Here is the model I did recently where the first and third floor aren't actually connected.

With regard to lower shots they were for the still internal shots however I cant delete them now as I used them in the Gallery. I should have saved the original scan as I have now deleted balcony scans in capture, but in future if I label door to balcony as window it should give a better image when looking back onto the apartment?

First model shot & could use a few tips Bellingham360 23 1 year360Verbeelding (340): hi, just my opinion. I had the same issue shooting inside a big supermarket. Ik think this can be solved bij placing the camera just a little bit higher. To me it looks like there is not enough visible information for the camera to fill in the openspaces of the handrail. Try to make a new scan at the center of the stairs at a higher level so the cameras that look down can see the edge of the handrail. Its sometimes trail and error. Grtz Rene.

How much Black is acceptable? Cabrahams 7 2 yearspixelray (316): I have learned to try and avoid it at all costs - but it's just unavoidable sometimes.

Distance between scans for warehouse? Cindiewozniak 16 2 yearsvincent (52): bring some objects to place in the wide open space the more objects the better consider sticking large squares of different colored paper to the walls every so often too zig zag as much as possible last thing pay attention to where the last scan is placed delete it if its been misplaced before you proceed
Weird alignement IBAdvantage 11 2 yearsGarySnyder (1321): Well done for one of your first jobs. If the sun is covered by clouds that still can be a problem as the IR will pass right through the clouds in many cases. You did you best and explained to the client the limitations of the camera and delivered and outstanding Showcase which then should be very happy with. They have to understand that you did indeed encounter and issue with the sun as you had warned them.
Learning Curve kpiper143 7 2 yearssuncoastskyview (172): Try not to be intimidated by it. Empty homes without furniture or clutter are much easier and a great place to start. My first was empty and it turned out pretty good except that my dog appeared in one of the scans and I neglected to turn off the ceiling fans (they turn into a blue blur). That's how you learn. You'll be up and running in no time. Post your questions here. This forum is very friendly and helpful. Best, Rick Odato,...

How to Hide a Matterport Scan in Workshop? DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsGarySnyder (1321): If you are having troubles with hiding the scan just duplicate the job and then delete the scan on the duplicate job and see how it works. You can duplicate a job as many times as you like to experiments how it plays out. Once your happy with the final version keep the original and delete all the others except for the one delicate that played out the way you liked it. Also delete the none keepers in your My-Matterport site.

When it can't find something else to verify or align to, it makes registration so much more difficult. This is why you see "overspray" in the dollhouse mode, the marker may have been put on, but there is a gap between the actual wall and...

Matterport Showcase 2.0 Released CarlosFHdz Jump to first page71Jump to last page 2 yearsQueen_City_3D (1246): @WalkVirtually It was pointed out to me that there is a Slideshow (which is set as the default) and then a highlighted tour which you have to actually go in and select. I agree that the Slideshow isn't much different than same old. The highlight tour is very novel though. I like how you can hover over a highlight pic and see the blue line running through the house showing where that location is and then by selecting it you ephemerally float...

MP Showcase + Samsung Gear VR CKC 7 2 yearsedirwin (34): I wasn't looking at a walk-through on a 3D M'port showcase. I was looking at a couple of sample VR presentations, one of the interior of a property that I don't believe was shot with a M'port camera and the other inside a stunning underground cave. Both were captivating and the stability depended only on the stability of your head as you move the goggles.

Wish List: What to Clean Up in a 3D Showcase DanSmigrod 7 2 yearsmikeE (34): I completely agree with Dan. 1) I would like to disable dollhouse view. In fact, i think being able to toggle on/off most icons via the url would be helpful. 2) the biggest thing for me is load times. If a customer has to wait 5-10 seconds for the link to load they are not sticking around. I need it to load in the background while we are showing them something real like a hero shot(not a loading bar). 3) more presentation options would...

If I can not avoid bright sun, I will do my best to capture the room anyway. Then, I will return to that room (during the same shoot) to add the "walk around" scans.

Extreme lag time today - anyone else? pixelray 5 2 yearspixelray (316): Update - thanks for all your input. I spent an hour on phone with MP support - great team there btw - he concluded that my scanning problem and taking so long for the transfer/connecting to camera to complete it's process had to do with some type of wifi interference in the building. I was in a high rise apartment building. There were 100's of wifi connections within this building. I am not a "techie", but I guess that seems to be...

Sanning times REMAX_EDGE 2 2 yearsCarlosFHdz (541): At first, it takes longer because you're being conservative on the distance from scan to scan point. As you get more practice, it will be faster. You will start to push the distance from each scan, specially in bigger rooms. Now, we're at about 35 min per 1000 sqft. I personally did a 6300 sqft property in 3 hours and 4200 sqft property in 2 hours. The layout of the home is also a determining factor in time to scan. I would recommend...

Matterport Staircases-Bottom Up or Top Down? DanSmigrod 15 2 yearsHarlanHambright (1027): Here's something I just did: I'm scanning a HUGE beach cottage with 2 separate second floors. After finishing the first one, I got halfway up the stairs to the second one. After a scan, without moving the camera, I switched to 2nd floor then scanned again figuring that might help the device figure out where it was. It posted the new scan in exactly the right spot relative to the initial series of 2nd floor scans. Maybe a waste of a scan but it...

Here's a couple examples: http://renderingspace.com/portal/7826-nw-skyline-blvd/ http://619contemporary.renderingspace.com/ The first one had a studio and cottage.

Anxiety over MP model risks cdpmedia 6 2 yearsccctucker (154): If your going to pay the money and buy this machine, your job is to make back your investment as soon as you can and then make as much after that, until the ride is over.

why a Sunken Living Room Becomes a Multi-Floor? Mikesobay 17 2 yearsMaria (106): I've had this issue pop up on occasion. Besides a sunk in living area become its own floor, we have also seen a floor of a split level home become an extension of the first floor. From my discussion with Matterport on the issue, they are tweaking their processing algorithms to prevent/reduce the occurrences of wrong floor issue. Back up your iPad scans so you can resubmit them later. Until then, turning of the floors is the best solution.

I left the opening for the door on the first floor but on the second floor I marked the windows across the whole wall as they appear. Obviously it did take it all the way down to the first floor. Made the change, re-uploaded and it worked perfectly. Thanks for your time and expertise. Tom

Or, could it use the name of the model? Something like this could be possible...but it'd be a bit more work on my end. Maybe we can put a bounty on this for me to put some more time into it?

Real Estate Marketing CathieRasch 7 2 yearsal9901 (55): The most success I have had with realtors is to identify the brokerages who want to use this for most if not all of their listings, and want to work with me long term. You will find some who want to try it out for free, think it is a nice gimmick, but these are the realtors who will just waste your time. They want to see if it takes off and they want a dirt cheap price; neither are worth your time. Check my post above for some suggestions how to...

Privacy / HIPPA rules Wonderdawg 6 2 yearsQueen_City_3D (1246): A few months ago I inquired to Matterport Support about the ability to obscure/"blur-out" objects in a scan. I mentioned that if a picture frame or something else is captured that the client would rather not be there, it would be neat to be able to draw around it in the Matterport Workshop and have that section then be obscured when scanned from the public model. They responded stating "a feature like you describe is already...
Door Issues (URGENT) 3DListings 7 2 yearsCarlosFHdz (541): 3Dlistings, deleting a scan and uploading is different than disabling because of what Dan said, it changes the mesh and will chenage the ability to walk through places.
Matterport Tips and Tricks for a Newbie?? usruss 3 2 yearspixelray (316): Keep the scans closer vs further away. Take your time. Use your level to keep camera perfect. The goal should be to not have a scan that won't align. Read up on this site. It has helped tremendously. Oh and practice on your own house with several scans of it. Good luck!

Shooting Detached Garage and Above Gameroom seanminor 9 2 yearsJohnBecker (385): When you scan the second floor of the garage, it should be a separate "floor" that isn't the same as the second floor of the house. I had a situation like that and Bob Horn at Matterport said that two non-contiguous "second floors" would have to get separate floors assigned to them in Capture. This may have changed since then, but it seems like the safe way to do it.
Door Strategy RenderingSpace 8 2 yearsDanSmigrod (12655): Yes. 😎 It should work. Sometimes I can walk into the pantry (and can not walk out. Manage clients' expectations. This is art: not science.) Worst case, if you can wal-in, but not out: keep these scans for the dollhouse and floor plan views; and deactivate from wal-around view in 3D Workshop. Dan

Threat to Matterport Users? Queen_City_3D 8 2 yearsTosolini (1705): If I were Matterport, I'd focus on the magic of their software. The writing is on the walls that the hardware is not going to be a big differentiator in the future, and prices are coming down. I think they are smart embracing threats like Google Project Tango, which allows you to scan a room in 3D using a simple device. The quality might not be there yet, but it's a matter of time that everybody will be able to do basic scans with their tablets...

Lighting Techniques for inside Wonderdawg 7 2 yearsron0987 (682): Dan, I understand what you are saying about the first scan and using a grey scale to set the WB but with wide range of areas covered I do not see that working. Because if you set it for a Kitchen that could have fluorescent, halogen and or led lights then move to an area that has incandescent or natural light which would again throw the balance off. I think that overall it is good. But I have noticed this being an issue when I moved from...

Camera height for tall warehouse GlennAronwits 7 2 yearscrullier (16): you guys have to realize that these cameras are a depth sensor before they are a camera. So they need to "sense" a depth to do a proper reconstruction. Too far away from the floor and to the camera it's like it's floating - without a point of reference.
First scan advice and observations... Lbelland 9 2 yearsRenderingSpace (604): Great Job. I'm a big fan of keeping the camera height around 5' or lower and it looks like you did it just right.

Use of 3D Showcase/Videos without Permission DanSmigrod 13 2 yearsJulianHowardCT (49): A lot of MP photographers seem to be putting a flipped version of their logo across the face of their cameras. Any shots in front of mirrors means you get a little safety with copyright - not to mention a bit of free advertising.
Model Processing Fees Jennifer 8 2 yearscrullier (16): I understand matterport needs to make money - and if you are a realtor you can change the model processing fee to the client, however in other applications it can become very expensive to use. I think the amount of "free" models you get is not enough; or that we should be charged by the number of hosted models and to process them.

Do deleted scans count to upload scan total? Queen_City_3D 11 2 yearsJamie (1549): Yep. You could re-upload 99 or 110 and not be charged. On that note, if you trim a duplicate 110 to 99 and upload, you will be charged for 1. If you then upload the 110 after, they charge you an additional 1 (2 in total) That's from experience :( and it was 103
Matterport versus iGuide (Which and Why) DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsDoyleRealtor (511): I've talked to many folks at Matterport, the owner of Toursler, and just recently Kevin with iGuide. All 3 companies have solid products, and are continuing to innovate in a new market category for real estate which is very exciting. Ultimately it comes down to 1) availability in your market place, and 2) whether or not the end user wants to do the scanning themselves or higher it out to a professional. From what I've seen with Toursler &...

You can move your models from Public which anyone can view if they have the URL to Private, this shuts off anyone from viewing the model but the model still stays in your My-Matterport library.

Long winding staircase CKC 12 2 yearsRenderingSpace (604): I'm curious if any of you have had this problem after the Capture 2.1.1 update. In the email we got from MP on May 13th it said the number one improvement is: "Scans are only aligned against other scans on the same floor (or the preceding successful scan), to prevent false alignment between distinct but similar-looking floors." I don't know if this is related but hopefully they're working on getting out the glitches. I've had this...

The Newsletter will have a SurveyMonkey link for a short survey. The survey results will be reported in this thread.

Uploading multi floors CKC 4 2 yearsJamie (1549): Use the arrows and 3 floors on the screen, bottom right. They will change between the floors Click on them all and it will display all floors together
Interactive features, possible? CKC 4 2 yearsCKC (85): Hi Scott, Yeah I think it's absolutely doable even without the Google platform...you just need people from different specializations. Right, definitely not with MP for now...thanks for your feedback.
Blur section CKC 11 2 yearsccctucker (154): I would rather have the blur than a blue disk, it would be too distracting..
How to calculate square footage for billing? pattimurray 10 2 yearsDanSmigrod (12655): @Jamie Thank you for the tip. Hopefully, Matterport will add an auto-calculate sf feature. It's included in the Forum's 'Wish List' for 3D Workshop thread. Dan
People in the Scan GarySnyder 21 2 yearstxgreg66 (49): @tim I checked the display on my ipad4 so I know iOS works. I presume you can see other scans so this is beyond my support capabilities
E-commerce & smart journalism CKC 1 2 yearsCKC (85): Hello, I have got clients asking how we can integrate MP and E-commerce and even VR-based reportage...right now what we can offer is a) the link, b) the embed code and c)obj files...are these enough for clients as a base to further create online shopping experiences and virtual reporting? Big and perhaps a bit vague questions, thanks!
Blinds open, Closed or partial closed RonK 5 2 yearsRonK (4): Hi All, Thanks for the input-much appreciated. RonK
problem with uploading missing ONE FLOOR 3dvirtueletour 3 2 yearsGarySnyder (1321): @3dvirtueletour it would appear that Showcase (SC) has combined some of your ground floor scan locations (the circles) with your first floor so the SC is confused. I would suggest removing the scan locations that are confusing SC and see if that solves your problem. These scan locations appear to be near the big carpeted open lounge area. Please let us know how you make out. Gary
Do You Need WiFi to Scan a Remote Location? CKC 13 2 yearsJamie (1549): I think the aliens on the far side of the moon might take the camera and reverse engineer it. Hey maybe that's a good thing, we can have our upgrades then
Which Tripod are You Using and Why? CKC 12 2 yearsGarySnyder (1321): @DanSmigrod I to have a second tripod which I use for my Cannon to shoot for Business View. It's a Giottos Vitruvian VGRN 9255 which is a sweat little tripod. It's so compact and light, an ideal tripod to carry on my backpack. And no your're not obsessive. You like me believe in having the right tools for the job :)
White circles in showcase Canada 7 2 yearsalx3D (709): Hey Canada. I can remove them for videos. Sorry I can't share though. https://youtu.be/EHtjZTcjZeU
Link on facebook Canada 3 2 yearsTim (355): Check the ad for Facebook solutions
Add music to model Canada 9 2 yearsMarcel (331): Yeah especially on an ipad in Australia when giving a demo to 20 agents on a big screen. :S
MP vs Google Business View CKC 9 3 yearsJamieSher (184): Hi Todd, Thanks for the kind words! Glad you like the films. I've been making these for a little under a year now so it's been a bit of time to get the techniques down. Always getting better at making them but each place and space is different and it's cool to see how they turn out. The other good thing is that people from anywhere in the world can just email them to me and they can be produced, packaged and sent back. Oh how good the...
Won't upload Canada 12 3 yearsMat (22): It sorted itself out. After 2 hours of sitting in Limbo, the upload % has started to increase.
Project tango? Canada 5 3 yearsTim (355): Yeah, received an email earlier today...not sure I see any use for us at the moment...
Matterport for Apartments in Michigan TrueSpaces 1 3 yearsTrueSpaces (52): In addition to residential and commercial real estate listings, we're exploring using Matterport for apartment community rentals too. Have you had success in offering apartment communities 3D Showcases? Seems like it would a great fit to help get new residents; especially relocations. Thanks!
Mirror on celing alx3D 3 3 yearscraigsauer (964): I know rescanning isn't an option, but I had an idea that might be better for future mirrored ceilings than the Matterport suggestion: Instead of covering the ceiling with something, you could probably fashion a mask for the camera, something like a piece of thick cardboard or foamboard painted black, and mounted securely to the top of the camera. As long as it didn't wiggle much while the camera was moving, it might work to block out the...
My first Coach Drew 3 3 yearsfabien (28): Same problem with noises coming from high ceiling on an exhibition booth : https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=3nCrBixTjor Actualy, I do not find any solutions to remove these artifacts afterwards. Looking for some suggestions. Regards, Fabien
Client complaint (when using older PCs) craigsauer 8 3 yearscraigsauer (964): @alex3D I just checked it again, and now I can't get through. Weird! Last time I checked I went through no problem, with the only weird thing being a brief flash of black screen as I went through it. (And that property you linked to isn't mine, although it's pretty cool!)
Scanning home + detached garage Canada 4 3 yearsCanada (10): Thanks for the heads up guys!
Embed the showcase asset into Facebook? Canada 2 3 yearscraigsauer (964): There are several threads here about this issue, which you can find by using the search funcion here. There's no straightforward way to get it to work, but workarounds have been found. 1. You can create a subpage on your own business page for the property and include some nice stills in a gallery, and then have your clients use the link to that page instead of the direct link. The upside is that you get publicity to your site. 2. If you...
First Complete Test Scan 5000+ sq ft EscapeVelocity 2 3 yearsEscapeVelocity (25): Support responded that there's a bug in the trim tool. Engineering is going to look into the tearing issue.
My first 10,000 sq ft scan craigsauer 3 3 yearsdfellars (52): Here is a link to a workshop mode of a 9000sqft house I did very early on (so don't judge.) I think there is about 7500 - 8000 sq ft in the model as we did not do the small upstairs area. I did the whole space in 57 sweeps, but it is a wide open layout. https://my.matterport.com/models/BcGs3DkMaMG Unless every room is fully furnished with lots of sweep-blocking furniture I would think you could do it in less than 200 sweeps. Dan...
Lowering tripod and its effects? EricThomas 4 3 yearsdfellars (52): https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=9hoRwMjcWSR This is a VERY early model we ran while testing the camera. This was pre-release and the showcase view was not yet available so we captured at multiple heights to try and create a more photo-realistic mesh view. Creating a better mesh view was not successful, but as you move through the kitchen you can see that we took sweeps at both a high and low position and it should give you an idea of the...
Doubt psegado 2 3 yearsJacques (94): Hi Pedro, I'll try to guess some answers and probably other members will be able to complete what will be missing. 1) See https://matterport.com/order/#compare Tou'll see that depending on the plan you subscribe it is 100, 200 or 300. 2) I'm not sure that there is a hard limit here, it most probably depends on the power of Matterport frontend servers and the capability of YOUR own web site if you decide to embed these "house...
