How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 9 5 daysVTLV (151): That's what I'm digging into. Trying to match file names I see on the server like obj files and seeing if similar names exist in either file. Unfortunately "Control F" isn't available. lol I'm not coming up with an order in the Jobs file. At the end of the list, I have some external 360's of some homes I took recently and in the middle and beginning I see the same thing. I'm not well versed on Mac. So this is all on the PC version....

Backup before it's too late! CarlosFHdz 4 12 daysfrstbubble (259): Will backup solve anything with the upcoming release of iOS?!? I am concerned with the upcoming update of iOS. In the post listed below @DanSmigrod points out that they are changing the file system. I am hoping this does not break my backup strategy.

synciOS - Anyone Using This App For Backups? Gransky 10 12 daysfrstbubble (259): I copy the entire contents of the Matterport folder to a backup hard drive after I come back from a day of scanning. I only have the scans I did that day on in the backup. I just move everything to the hard drive. When I start the capture app again it makes all new files database and folder system. Then if I want to work on a model from a previous scan I just drag that dataset back to the iPad. I have multiple iPads and can work on a model on...

NY HQ tango capture Max_Sodomovskiy 3 17 daysfrstbubble (259): Thanks, you for sharing. I used the built in app and had trouble capturing a 19-24ft space. Will have to try the Rtabmap app. I was just wondering if the Phab2pro would just be another boat anchor.
Quick Trimming Question Joelbcollins 3 21 dayslisahinson (598): @Joelbcollins I had a similar situation where the bottom floor extended beyond the top floor and it was not possible to mark windows on the top floor because it caused misaligns below on the bottom floor (and to add something else into the mix... the windows on the top floor were 'normal' about 7' up and then slanted in 45 degrees).. I trimmed the top and it worked great! DUPLICATE the model first though. Let us know if it worked for you!

Weirdest Matterport Model of 2017! Networker 9 24 dayswalk360 (37): I have had the same problem couple of times.... if you are able to determined which scan is making the misaligned problem... just delete that one... you might not have to go back and re-scan. Make a copy model on the iPad and delete the 'Problem" scans... and see what happenes.... if for any reason you have to go back to the model it will be just for 10 mins to re-scan few spots. Is that a building in Bogota, Colombia?

I agree with @GarySynder that it is probably the sun. Was the windows/mirrors marked correctly? Have you tried trimming it? Of course, make a copy before you change it too much.
Missing entire spaces Sandiemcr 3 2 monthsDanSmigrod (8722): @Sandiemcr 1. Delete the scan in the wrong location 2. If you put the tripod lowest height, you should be able to complete the space successfully 3. Go back and scan at normal height 4. Disable the low scans in workshop Dan

My question is can we use something to back up these iPads, save the models because I may want to add to these? And be able to drag them in and out of these app as needed. I think I know the answer -...

If you ever get to a job and you get the firmware update notice – as we have - here's how I suggest you change your workflow. 1. If you do not use Matterport Capture app daily, before your next job, pair your iPad with the Matterport Camera for 30 minutes. 2. Restart the Camera and iPad. 3. See if a new Firmware update is ready Note: As much as I would like the benefits of a...

Hotel Room Scan - Please Review RealEstateVR 6 3 monthsUserName (565): Looks good. I viewed it in my Gear VR. That's the first time I've seen a hotel room in a VR headset. I'm not sure why hotel room VR headset tours don't seem to exist. Hotel sites have photos of rooms. Visit Ramada's site, for instance, and you see room photos. However, nothing beats using a VR headset to walk through a room you're thinking about booking. if you have a headset you might see what that room looks like. As a tourist, I would have...

Is it possible to add scans. RealEstateVR 6 4 monthsjustinv (211): Sometimes you get lucky and it aligns the first time, but this rarely happens. You just have to be patient and keep moving it around until you catch. You said "a client did not want to include a room". I assume you had this door closed off? If so, try starting around corner to get it to align. Work your way back to the room with the door open. I had this happen before. Start by making a copy of the model in the capture app. Once you...

It was the upstairs front bedrooms that gave me the heebie jeebies particularly. Then after...

Editor not loading on new scans Acomeau15 2 7 monthsMetroplex360 (3472): Alex, see my post on 'Matterport Making Huge Changes'.

The mothership has landed! leeverdon 14 9 monthsfranmts (169): @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....

We have to factor that and direct sunlight when the door is open and is facing a large sliding door at 9:00 a.m. facing East .. My job was 60 vacation rentals and most had small entrance hallways and the guest or primary bathroom in reach of open door partially blocking the area.

Matterport Launches Schematic Floor Plans Maria 15 11 monthsProperty3dNZ (289): @Noel WOW! That's ridiculous! I have worked closely with MP for at least 8 months before metric measurements were released - the ridiculous thing is that the very first release of MP had metric measurements! I have actually been told during a skype meeting by Katharine Nevins (who works in the Product Management team) that it automatically creates in metric and they have to convert it to imperial! So frustrating!

Time Saver Tip!!! How to Move Many Scans judysmithre 6 1 yearcraigsauer (751): The Capture App and Matterport processing actually don't care if you do all the scans on one floor. But it makes a mess of the floorplan sketch view on the Capture app if you do it.

Closets and wardrobes to fill dollhouse RobinLycka 7 1 yearRobinLycka (664): @Jamie I tried your method yesterday, worked like a charm. I was surprised that I could even move into the area where the door was closed in the first round. I kind of expected it to be perceived as a "wall" in the walkthrough, and that you could only move up to the scan point outside the door. Very happy that the result was otherwise, albeit not needed as it was only a utility and a small cloakroom. Thanks for the suggestions :)
Updating a Tour BestViewImaging 4 1 yearron0987 (541): Like both Jamie and Dan have pointed out it may take some time, I have gone in an added a few scans and they have immediately taken, I have had a few where I had to scan several times from different Heights or positions to get it to take. Good luck Ron

Highlight Reel? DaveFahrny 7 1 yeardorlando (67): I use QuickTime or ScreenFlow with really good results. As a production company I would rather not hire out myself. Costs savings and most importantly, total control over our product.
Problem, Next floor Would not Align judysmithre 5 1 yearHarlanHambright (685): Are you SURE you had moved the capture app back to the first floor? I had that issue once. And sometimes I scan, create a new level and scan again w/o moving the camera.
Seemingly long upload ? ScanMan 2 1 yearlisahinson (598): The same thing happened to me on one last week with very few scans - It finally showed up. Yours probably will too!
Distance between scans for warehouse? Cindiewozniak 16 1 yearvincent (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 1 yearGarySnyder (1177): 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.

Anyone Work/Capture With An Assistant BrianM 5 1 yearron0987 (541): BrianM My partner and I do this all the time. The only issue we come up with is some times he is to far away and we loose the wifi connection with the camera and loose the last scan. So if you pick an area that is in close proximity to the camera and park it, it should go fine. We find on bigger houses it works faster because one of us is marking up the APP while the other is placing the camera. I hope this helps. Ron
Making360: free ebook for 360 video creators Tosolini 1 1 yearTosolini (1099): If you are interested in 360 video, you'll appreciate this open source initiative called 'making360' aimed at spreading the knowledge of best practices in creating 360 footage. http://bit.ly/m360releases Kudos to the volunteers who have put together this effort.
why do I want to save old scans? BrettMtn 17 1 yearMax_Sodomovskiy (157): Hello! Well, somebody did it? Confirm that I am right!
When to mark? DigitalImageries 4 1 yearHarlanHambright (685): Yds, mirrors must be marked sometimes to allow alignment. i missed a mirror today, unaligned a scan, marked the mirror and successfully scanned without moving anything. An unmarked sliver of a mirror went unmarked last week. It caused an errant 3D object in the hall beyond which showcase would not walk through. Marking the mirror and reprocessing the model fixed it. So you can mark stuff anytime you want.

Messed up continuity with door closed/open Dennis_N 11 1 yearron0987 (541): I have never used it as I have showed in the diagram but if you attempt to use four lines just to in close just the door it might work, if you try it it wont cost you anything to process it again. Ron
Image missalignment artifact Dennis_N 5 1 yearJamie (1498): Or the quick release bracket (if you have one)
Stairs Dgitin 5 1 yearron0987 (541): @Dgitin I also try for the landing if there is one and if not I usually try to go for the top of the stairs. I would also recommend not doing more than 3-4 steps at a time and to make it look good in the model I would keep it the same number of steps each time. Ron
Aerial Footage Invelop 30 1 yeartradetickers (10): They just want money. F the FAA. Who cares what the government wants to regulate. Their regulation only hurts the economy. Anything that deliberately hurts the economy is an enemy of the people. It's just another way to steal more money from a supposed free people. It's us against them, as there is no representation.

Slow camera connection geoffllerena 5 1 yeargeoffllerena (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...
Have You Ever Been Caught? BrianM 7 1 yearmikeE (34): Thanks Bill! Very kind of you.
Distortion? GusArb 7 1 yearGarySnyder (1177): 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...
Matterport and Lighting KenBanks 8 1 yearGarySnyder (1177): Hi Cyrus I've still not had a need for the lights as this was a very special case where I was supposed to shoot part of the VT up a very dark spiral stairs up to a tower but as I said it didn't happen. 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
On Camera Lighting RenderingSpace 14 1 yearDanSmigrod (8722): @chdsi80 I successfully use my iPhone flashlight to "burn" in light. I am a few feet behind the camera - holding the iPhone high - and while the camera rotates, I "brush" in light. I contacly keep the phone moving so that I do not create sharp lines of dark and light areas or shadows on walls. The Camera does very well in low light with out this. I only do this in very, very dark areas. Practice and review your...

Is the Matterport Camera capable of high res Metroplex360 2 1 yearMaxx90 (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.

Foremost, How is it that you have to turn to a forum to resolve this unresolved problem. How is it that the company that sold you the $4500 camera and the hefty processing and monthly fees hasnt jumped to attention to sort it out? And my even bigger concern is how could a well established user like you with...

Sanning times REMAX_EDGE 2 2 yearsCarlosFHdz (520): 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...
Does a scan ever expire on the ipad? Ramyr 3 2 yearsdavidpylyp (175): WOW Once a property is sold is there a need to keep the model on my CAPTURE? As it is sold, I deleted it Under our rules [Toronto Canada] I would need the permission of the new owner to continue using this as an advertisement.

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.

transfer taking a long time Jamie 21 2 yearsJamie (1498): Yes I'm still on ipad air 1. Will be interesting if you had both air 1 and 2 and tried to duplicate the same error. I had issues before but put it down to the 1st gen camera. I tried the same area with a 2nd Gen and an air 2 and it worked. If I had time I would have used the air 1 on gen 2 and vice versa to try and isolate the issue

Failed to Generate from Scan NoRC 15 2 yearsNoRC (16): Well thought I would post an update, I sent Matterport an email about the issue. They duplicated the job 4 times, of that 2 actually rendered out and are now available while 2 others failed. So at least the issue is their end and not the upload/shoot. Will post more as I find out.
Long Hallway scan issue craigsauer 5 2 yearscraigsauer (751): Ah! That's what I was missing. I was stuck thinking both these issues were related to the long hallways, but actually they are unrelated issues. The hotel issue was that the hallway was long and featureless and the house issue was that because the hallway was too sunny I tried to scan outside before completing the house. Thanks! Craig
Blur Out Faces GarySnyder 22 2 yearsNoRC (16): It is a shame that this is not possible, I am sure the JPEG images are there it is just they are all wrapped up in a proprietary container (SWL). Would be nice if there were a simple way to touch up an image or two (paint out items). I had to re-shoot several shots last night due to a roach appearing somewhere mid shoot. Since I had no way to tell if it was in any shots, chase the roach out and re-shoot. Would have much more preferred the...
My First Scan seanminor 6 2 yearsseanminor (40): Thanks for the thoughts and advice. @JohnBecker I didn't scan the J&J the way I had envisioned but I can see how we could drive ourselves crazy trying to make this perfect. The pantry I left alone as well because of the door situation. Further experimentation could be useful but like @RealEstateReadines says, keep some mystery in the home. @Lbelland it's funny but I was trying to scan in the middle of the master bath doorway, but I could...
Lighting Techniques for inside Wonderdawg 7 2 yearsron0987 (541): 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...

If you didn't know what was going on you would almost be lost in space as there is nothing unless you are aware you need to turn around and see the other half of the scan.

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...

problem with uploading missing ONE FLOOR 3dvirtueletour 3 2 yearsGarySnyder (1177): @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

(I probably shot nearly 400 scans; duplicated the model then deleted until I was at about 280 scans and then deactivated scans until I was at 212.
