How you Scan inside cars ? DroneProjects 12 3 hoursDroneProjects (4): Hi All The time has come! Finally, we haven't needed any kind of extra tool, just we did the scans with our manfrotto tripod and keeping the camera well leveled, like in the photos I posted in a previous post (although we also kept our fingers crossed XD) The result is very good, we're happy satisfied. When I have the permission of my client and the model is done, ' ll upload the visit so that you can judge for yourselves Thanks to all...

Matterport Cloud to Support Other Cameras? DanSmigrod 18 24 daysMetroplex360 (6184): I'm planning on budgeting and buying one after seeing Matterport's e-mail this morning. The improvement in capture of the MESH -- TALL CEILINGS complete ... I see this as being a game changing investment and believe that I could market this hard core - as well as potentially renting the unit out to other MSPs in the area... This is just too good.

Scan not aligning & panning direction Riaan 2 1 montharistepp (58): I'd love an answer to your last sentence. I have read one explanation about controlling the pan direction. Can't say that it was helpful at all. I continue to work at understanding the machinations of the process so I can control it. Sometimes the pan works out exactly as I want it and other times I simply cannot win. Explanations welcome.
Over exposed Scans BobbyG 9 1 monthHelen (601): @Bobby On the new ones you posted the spaces are not very well lit so I can understand the camera having the bright windows when trying to brighten up the interior. When you get close to the windows the view and everything looks great.

Insta360 One | New 1-Click 360º Camera $300 DanSmigrod 10 2 monthsTrustedPhotoDC (607): @DanSmigrod I just like them and put them places that a DSLR rig is too large or too heavy to carry. I have a few Theta-S cameras, most are trashed now and I don't see the V much with much evolution so spreading out the flock a bit. And the price of the Samsung is ridiculous not to get one or two.
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...
Ricoh Theta V: First GSV Mobile Ready Camera DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): I am curious to know if this camera has a better depth of field than its predecessor. I also predict that this will be a perfect device for third party experiments with ARKit. It's that fuzzy feeling depth of field that killed my interest in the Theta S. I ordered it, used it twice and it's been sitting in the bag.

Help Understanding Matterport Bad Scan BobbyG 12 2 monthsJonJ (1237): @BobbyG, I would scan the core and then incrementally outward from each of the hallways so that they end up connecting at each of the corners. If you can get the center to line up, you should get better results. The reason your minimap has a misalignment is due to the aggregation of minor errors as you scanned around the building. By the time you work your way around the large space, the compounding error is too large to resolve. Also, you...

Matterport Camera Height: What do you do? DanSmigrod 7 3 monthsDanSmigrod (12655): @MarcelloM @DannyBasting is doing scans for the data; not for walking around. If you are walking around, you do not want to bob up and down. While We Get Around Atlanta has done it to keep out of mirrors when the client insists, the user likely goes, oh, that's he Camera, and then keeps looking at the space. Dan
Matterport Camera Purchase DaveFahrny 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): @DaveFahrny Great to hear! Matterport have been overwhelmed by the positive response (orders) for Pro-2 cameras and fulfillment is working VERY hard. Each camera goes through testing for alignment and from what I understand, there's quite a bit of manual assembly involved including modding of the actual Primesense cameras. For anyone who wants a Pro-2 -- order as soon as you can if you want to ensure that you have it when you need it.

How many scans to become proficient? dtavres 7 4 monthsjustinv (982): 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...
Upgrade or not? What would you do? tocha 11 4 monthsQueen_City_3D (1246): We've also ordered the new camera and plan to keep our existing as a back up and to scan 2 different properties at same time if required by hiring some help. 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...

Updated Pro2 Discount and Trade-In Programs Metroplex360 15 5 monthsAwesome360 (4): Same thing here. I purchased April 28th 2017 and was told no new cameras are in the works! That is pathetic.
Dear Matterport, About your new camera... StevenHattan 16 5 monthstomasdunbar (70): I have my camera 8 months. I love the camera but this latest development is going to hurt. I will not be able to afford the new camera and it is a huge slap in the face. The price is significantly less for someone else to enter my market than what I originally paid and they will now have a better camera than me. Matterport have lost my respect
Is the Pro2 a Competitive Advantage? DanSmigrod 8 5 monthsjustinv (982): My prices are going to stay the same with my old camera. I hope everyone in my market upgrades and raises their prices. For the most part, Realtors are cheap here and everywhere else.
Matterport Pro2 Early Bird Increased to $500 DanSmigrod 13 5 months3SixtyNow (178): I received an email today about the updated program to "better support our newest customers" but the trade in value for my camera hasn't changed. So, how is that "better support"?

The Matterport 3D Pro2 Camera is a Joy! Metroplex360 23 5 months3dinsights (40): The transfer speed on the Pro2 at 5Ghz is 2 - 3 times faster than the older 2.4ghz wifi protocol. So if the Pro2 is transferring more data its probably not noticeable as its moving from camera to iPad at a much quicker rate.

Pre order new Matterport Pro2 Camera? DannyBasting Jump to first page73Jump to last page 5 monthsDannyBasting (958): @Queen_City_3D you can use just one account. It doesn't matter what camera you are using, you just need to be logged in to the account where you want the model to be hosted when you upload it. Unless you want to work with a sepparate account for a big client that wants to cover his own monthly fee and conversion costs, I don't realy see the benefit in getting multiple accounts.
Two Matterport Cameras: Pro2 3D and Pro DanSmigrod 7 5 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): @Wanderfish360 If you can afford it, do it. The quality of the Pro2 is a joy. Also, consider that you may not want to miss out on the first production run!
New Camera Price justinv 4 5 monthsGeorgeK (775): @Justinv We think alike Justin, I am still singing the benefits of having it but saying it has a higher resolution is not that big of a thing to me. I bet there is more on its way, in the digital space but right now in San Diego the percentage of Realtors even using the system is embarrassing given we are a high tech center and our prices are through the roof. Hope all is good your you in the TVA... george
Why Return Your Matterport Camera... DanSmigrod 5 5 monthsDanSmigrod (12655): Hi All, Just spoke with a new Matterport Pro. He got his camera in the last 30 days. He was not planning on returning it because s/he has places to scan and does not want to be without a Camera. I suggested: 1. Buy a used Matterport Camera on eBay. There will be a ton. And, eBay guarantees the purchase. 2. Make sure you get a photo of the serial number so that you can confirm with Matterport that the Camera was not stolen. 3. Return the new...

Matterport MIrror FIx viewnvisit 3 5 monthsMetroplex360 (6184): I have suspicions that Matterport are either planning on offering a service to us in the future, or allowing us to do this ourselves. If I had an estimate for this, it would be before GSV launches -- as we likely need to be able to blur license plates and people's faces.

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....

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. That's why I imagine that Matterport will enable easy, fast and ($$$) to publish to Google Map. And, that we will see Google acquire Matterport. 😎 The first, big step forward will be Matterport making their API public. Dan

Matterport Facebook Ad 3SixtyNow 7 8 months3SixtyNow (178): They are more about selling the cameras than actually helping us create more demand. Every add I see is about buying the camera.

The amount/frequency of images is up to the tour creator. Of course you don't get the fancy dollhouse/wireframe view of a house or structure, but SeekBeak isn't designed for Real Estate, it's more of a general creative toolbox... as you've discovered.

I don't tend to think or work with 3D and had misappropriated '3D'. I usually think of the Z axis as being 3D... and when -I- think of the Z axis, I'm thinking that a panorama is X & Y and that the distance into the photograph (that doesn't really exist) is Z. The 2D Lidar scanner is really scanning what I perceive to be the X and Z axises. It lacks the Y axis. I think it's quite...

Is InsideMaps too good to be true?

List: Best 3D Scanners of 2015 via 3ders.org DanSmigrod 4 2 yearscrullier (16): they are all different pieces of equipment for different things. Many of them are hobby grade and I would not use them for professional work. The matterport is great to do the "realtor" type work and to some extent GENERAL measurement acquisition. Being in the AEC industry I would not fully base a set of contract documents (as-builts) based on matter port data. On the other hand, I have used (my firm owns) a Faro X120. We use it...

Ticking noise while scanning? 3dHouseScan 12 2 yearsDanSmigrod (12655): @Bill Seems like a great opportunity for Matterport to surprise and delight with a loaner program: especially because we are all the early adapters / key influencers.

Scan button does not light or work dphi 5 2 yearsShawen (37): Your problem was the date. So here is what happens. The Camera acts as the WiFi access point and hands out IP addresses to any device that connects. This connection procedure does not care about the dates on either device. Here comes the problem, The iPad connects to the camera via HTTPS. Even if you try and connect to port 80 you are automatically forwarded on to port 443 for a secure connection. When the date on the client system, in this case...

I imagine in the church that you shot, running outside and back in would have been IMPOSSIBLE.

Short Survey for data gathering Tateo 18 2 yearsfranmts (172): Maybe it's a matter more of technology adoption timing and familiarity. What I mean by that is that any agent knows what to do with good quality photos and videos, 'cause they play nicely on MLS, any portal, people click and it plays. On the other hand we're selling mostly software, which isn't featured yet in Zillow and yet gives brokerages quite a hard time to embed on properties, there's lots of improvement on the back-end yet to be done......

Slow camera connection geoffllerena 5 2 yearsgeoffllerena (7): Yes I tried too. Someone's answer on Facebook that makes sense too: Michael said: "Most likely there was a high 2.4GHz traffic in that place and when Matterport device opened its access point (AP), negotiated a slow transfer channel with the neighboring APs. Why? Well, that's how 802.11x standards are written. The bandwidth is limited, the more members, the slow it gets. What to do? restart the camera to give it another run of the...

Distortion? GusArb 7 2 yearsGarySnyder (1321): Thanks Dan @Queen_City_3D what Dan is referring to is the centre line of the camera during one of its rotation stops. Just look where the camera is pointing and you can easily get a feeling where the center line of the camera will fall and move the camera accordingly so the next stop to the right falls on the center the item you’re trying to capture. It’s also better if you can avoid it not to be so close to certain objects. Think of it...

I'd be very interested in seeing what you design and produce as I have to admit I'm intrigued by your suggestion of printing a case for the camera. Best regards Gary
Why do all the threads with matterport tradetickers 7 2 yearstradetickers (10): Yes the main question is "why are so many selling?". Has me concerned. The learning curve on this is nil and once they see how much they'r laying out to get these done they realize they could just buy their own. No skill involved means this is not going to stay lucrative.

Is the Matterport Camera capable of high res Metroplex360 2 2 yearsMaxx90 (7): I shoot a lot of DSLR myself, however I am shooting bracketed which I then do post production on. Although my cameras do it internally it is never as good as the manual way, so my guess is that it is the same with the Matterport camera. On a high note however the end product looks much better on mobile devices which is what is predominately used these days.

A case for the Matterport Pro 3D Camera DigitalImageries 9 2 yearsMaria (106): I use a Nanuk case which is made in Canada. It's very similar to the Pelican case I was issued but I actually like it better than the pelican. I like their latches and minor features not present in the Pelican I use such as the handle snaps in the down position keeping it from potentially being broken (Not likely with these cases, but possible). The resin is supposedly stronger allowing a lighter case, but I have no way of verifying that. The...

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.
