How to Export a 360º Snapshot from any scan DanSmigrod 1 11 hoursDanSmigrod (12085): Hi All, A Forum Member writes: I read your post from early June about MP delivering the 360 photosphere output capability “within 30 days”. Did I miss something? Did that happen? Thanks so much. [redacted] --- Here's how ... 1. Launch Workshop 2. Select location Matterport Spaces 3D Tour that you would like a 360º 3.

Tip: ABC-Always Be Charging (while scanning) DanSmigrod 2 1 dayArtisticConcepts (421): I agree, Just be careful not to catch your charging cord on anything though. I was walking away from the camera once and snagged my charging cord on the tripod. I caught it on the way down, but it was an equally scary and embarrassing moment. 😂
Did I miss a room scanning with Matterport? DanSmigrod 5 1 dayjustinv (922): @DanSmigrod I had this happen a couple of weeks ago. I assumed it was a pantry and never looked. I was just scanning because they already had pictures. I got home and decided to look at the picture to find out they were iPhone pictures. Well, I kept flipping and started to see rooms that did not look familiar. That pantry was stairs to a bedroom and game room. Come to find out, there is no pantry in that house! The fun fact about this house...
Help Understanding Matterport Bad Scan BobbyG 12 6 daysJonJ (1144): @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 dollhouse: How to remove? BobbyG 3 10 daysBobbyG (28): Thank you very much. Appreciate the advice. Bobby
How to Shoot Matterport 360º Photos Outdoors DanSmigrod 14 14 daysajabba (7): If the shop is so far away from the house that it did not leak from the house, then I have to start a new scan, right? Then does that count as two spaces?
360 Views and Snapshots Only? skyblue1 6 20 daysMetroplex360 (5689): @skyblue1 I personally think that that's a good idea. Matterport may consider adding 'Core360' - a mode in Workshop that allows free shooting of 360s with GeoCoordinates from the Pro-2 camera. No 3D Model. If they want, they could treat 100 360s as 1 model. They could then have a special player for their Matterport Core 360 that doesn't utilize 3D. It would also be nice if Matterport had a mode where you could shoot an outside tour with...
Our first paid tour fotoguy 9 24 daysfotoguy (70): @tocha, I found on my Iphone that I did get stuck in the hallway but on my laptop I don't. Not sure why that is unless it's a sizing issue. I will look into doing the mesh to fix the problem.
changing model name fotoguy 7 24 daysfotoguy (70): I was able to do it in WP3D and it did not change the link name, so all is good. I downloaded the 301 redirect just in case something changes.
changing Matterport hero image fotoguy 4 25 daysMarcelloM (19): Hello Intellidrone, is it possible to "hide" or "erase" the hero image since it disturbs the downloading sequence. Thank you!
highlight reel problem fotoguy 5 26 daysDanSmigrod (12085): @fotoguy In the last 10 days, other pros reported duplicate images and they sai Matterport Support told them known issue. Traveling today; perhaps someone else can post the link to that discussion here. Dan P.S. I do not recall if there was a work around.

Our first paid scan fotoguy 8 27 daysjustinv (922): @fotoguy Awesome I hope you and the clients are happy. The scans get easier with experience. After a few, you will hardly even have to hide scan spots in workshop.
Using WP3D Models before my website is live? fotoguy 5 1 monthrpetersn (1408): @fotoguy - Gotcha, if the public can't see it, then you wouldn't be able to start using WP3D until that "coming soon" is removed.

slideshow with realtor logo fotoguy 13 1 monthrpetersn (1408): Hi Great question re: what is meant by a "gallery site". I'll try to be more clear here: We built WP3D Models to help Matterport Service Providers quickly incorporate their content into their websites. The only catch is that your site has to be built on WordPress. Considering that WordPress powers over 27% of the Internet, our software can be instantly added to any site built on this platform. But, even with WordPress'...
Newbie looking for input and or input KentoBlanco 4 1 monthJTR (10): Mine is definitely not an expert opinion but it looks good. Nice beach house (I guess), you should have done some scans outside, I bet it was nice!
Which is the best Camera??? fragache 6 1 monthMetroplex360 (5689): 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...

First virtual tour fotoguy 8 1 monthfotoguy (70): Yes, the first photo was from a 360. What height is a good height? We were thinking we had to keep it a consistent height throughout the house in order for everything to align.

How many scans to become proficient? dtavres 7 2 monthsjustinv (922): 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...
Trouble with doors [HELP] mikerodin 6 2 monthskellysuesharp (31): If you shoot with the door open and then closed and it messes up and won't let you navigate back thru the door (which happened to us), here is the cut and paste from tech support on how to fix it: Fortunately there is a trick to fixing this that you can use in the Capture app: Return to the Capture app, open the space up, place 2 Trim Markings on either side of this door frame, Arrows facing one another, then reupload the space. You'll have to...
Upgrade or not? What would you do? tocha 11 2 monthsQueen_City_3D (1216): 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...
3D Showcase for School Library edward 6 2 monthsedward (7): @Baxter It took us approx 4 hours to complete onsite scan. That's a great idea to index the book section, will bring this up to school and see if there's any thing we can do. Thank you very much!
Effect of Camera Height Richierichks 15 3 monthscraigsauer (958): 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...

Newbie - Changing the start point in VR BobbyG 3 3 monthsjustinv (922): @BobbyG You know you have a scan point but cannot pass through the door? You can go into workshop and use the pull down menu to enter mesh mode. You can usually find the source of the problem. Look into the capture app and make sure everything is marked correctly. It could be the door is marked as window, mirror in another area not marked properly. Or do the easy way, in capture app, use the trim tool. First make a copy of model so you...

Matterport Facebook Ad 3SixtyNow 7 6 months3SixtyNow (175): They are more about selling the cameras than actually helping us create more demand. Every add I see is about buying the camera. Which I don't blame them, that is why they are in business. I just wish the would have adds that advertise finding a service provider as well.

Maybe someone nearby can come in and give hints about that market. 2.What career did they have before? This can help everyone think outside the box for this person. 3.What is their ideal target market? I know how to run Facebook ads and would be willing to help them get that started.

Scanned Preschool Advice 3SixtyNow 4 6 months3SixtyNow (175): Thank you so much @Metroplex360 & @craigsauer. I have been soaking in all of the advice on the forum for almost a year now. With the help of a friend who wanted to help me get started, I was able to get my camera. I'm extremely excited to help realtors and business' alike to show what they have to offer. I'm also going to focus on the AEC industry since I have 15 years experience as a Designer & CADD Technician.
Navigation in Model Using a MacBookPro Senojev 4 6 monthsSenojev (67): Solved the mystery after using another MacBook. Turned out it was a configuration issue with the trackpad. I now have full maneuverability and can get down the stairs.
Smoothly rotating 360, what am I missing? aristepp 2 6 monthsDouglasMeyers (253): Here is a little trick I found... 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...

Refurb / Secondhand Cameras JACKS79 3 7 monthsMetroplex360 (5689): @JACKS79 @LetMe3D While I fully plan on buying a new Matterport Pro camera when it comes out, as inevitably, a new one will arrive, I am very cautious to speculate when one will come out. The current Matterport camera shoots 2K tiles -- much larger than is needed for viewing on mobile. The current Matterport camera, through recent firmware updates has demonstrated that image quality can continue to be improved through software...

Ugly doll house Radie842 2 7 monthsQueen_City_3D (1216): It needs a few additional scans and some additional trimming. I'd suggest one or 2 more scans in the mechanical/furnace room, even if those scans are later deactivated, http://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/92df19c50f406e349b49ac8871269c38.jpg and 1 more scan in the upstairs bedroom where the black spot shows on the floor plan view. It looks like that's where the camera was positioned and so it didn't have that area scanned. Same thing...

How to get the space to open in a new window terrygrant 6 7 monthsUserName (583): Do you want to give users the ability to click an image thumbnail and switch to fullscreen in the current tab? Or open a separate popup window? Or open in fullscreen in a different tab? If so, you can do that with a little code that calls the fullscreen api that works in all modern browser. See it in action by clicking ON the picture that's on this demo page. Click that' page's button only puts you in fullscreen mode without enlarging the...
Reopening Matterport Space & VR Core Networker 5 8 monthsNetworker (55): @Helen. Thanks for the heads up. Once you pointed me in the right direction-I explored it. The answer is yes. Each scan point becomes a VR scan point and you can leave it or hide it. Thanks for the pointer!

unique/personal links to 3d tours JTW_VR 8 8 monthsQueen_City_3D (1216): The hosting of spaces (hosting fees) is the real money-maker for a company like Matterport, so even if the technology evolves to where they no longer give support to new scans, I can't see why they'd ever give up hosting existing ones and getting that recurring revenue for as long as the scans are viewable on webpages or mobile devices.
Creepy scans Radie842 6 9 monthsBaxter (556): 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...

Matterport Workshop ? JMEPhotos 4 9 monthsfrstbubble (316): @JMEPhotos If you duplicate and upload a model it will change. Say you delete some scans or find you need to add a scan. There are two workarounds to ensuring the client will not have to change a link on their end. 1. use WP3D Models. You then change the link in there and link provided to the client is to the WP3D models. It is a great WP plugin. 2. Use a URL shortener. When you update a model then all you do is change it in the shortener...

Photography ownership AAS 7 10 monthsGlennTremain (922): There are licensing agreements out there and I think Dan has a legal contract connection if you dig into the forums by searching. However many give everything away and locks you out from displaying your work. Be sure you leave the door open to use the work to get business AND try to help them do what their lawyer wants if possible.

Questions from a prospect....advice? VRealExperience 2 10 monthsDSPhoto (106): You license the work to them based on how they plan on using it. More exposure and time means more money How you go about that is a whole other ball game. Other random thoughts: Remember to keep licensing fees seperate from production fees. Do not qoute a price that combines production with licensing. It makes it hard to place proper value to each. Avoid licensing for more 3 years at a time and list the licensing for a second year. Don't...

Matterport Vs. Google Radie842 2 10 monthsjfantin (1099): MP and GSV are two different animals that happen to use similar concepts. In my opinion they complement each other but are not direct competitors because the value proposion is different. Quality is different and the navigation experience is superior with MP. The dollhouse is a killer feature for some customers (although not to everybody). While with Google StreetView you get more exposure because any time a user searchs for a business or a...

Whats Matterports plan!!! AAS 3 11 monthsMetroplex360 (5689): If Matterport would allow MSPs to sell cameras and receive a kick-back (either $ or credit), I would love to help sell cameras and offer a free consultation with scans. In my opinion, you cannot stop a Realtor from buying a camera, therefore, the best position to be in is to HELP them make that decision by allowing them to participate with you, have a hands on, and decide if its the right decision. I think that if Matterport ended the $600...

Hiding scan points alsangio 5 11 monthsRootsyloops (307): So I'm a little stuck on this. If you have an undesirable room (i.e. Mechanical room) that you don't want included in the walk through but you want to scan to complete the dollhouse, do you scan with the door leading to that room open? I'm asking because I have a nice looking room that has a mechanical closet that I need to complete the dollhouse. If I scan the nice room with the door open, it looks tacky. If I scan it with the door closed,...

Constructive Criticism Wanted vchelf 8 1 yearProperty3dNZ (460): @vchelf Sorry jumping on the band wagon a bit late! This is a great scan for your first one! Everybody has a personal preference with the height of the tripod - personally I put it lower so that it doesn't feel like I'm going to hit my head on door ways etc but also so I don't feel like I'm having to look all the way down at the ground for your next cirle/scan. Same goes for having the camera showing in the bathroom - I'm not bothered by this...

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. Most of these were by the large windows where the sun was shining in. When this is the case, shut the blinds and rescan the areas doing the best you can to...

Matterport Cloud and File Downloads BDPelton 3 1 yearron0987 (667): Hi @BDPelton, the actual models are all hosted in the cloud/Matterport server and accessed thru their access portal and there is no way to download a finished model. You can download an OBJ file which can be used with other software programs but in that format are useless to show as a model. An OBJ is more of a 3D modeling format that can be converted to be used for again other programs. I hope that helps. Ron

Glass walls and partitions. chdsi80 2 2 yearsGarySnyder (1315): You need to mark-up the glass walls as windows otherwise you can walk right through the walls to any spot that you've shot a scan as the camera thinks it a clear approach. Make sure that you leave the door open into each office otherwise you won't be able to enter the office. I would suggest marking up the glass wall as you shoot the office complex. This will help the camera align each scan correctly.

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...

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.

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.

Colour Grading/Correcting Scans JulianHowardCT 14 2 yearsJulianHowardCT (49): @al9901 Blender is freeware, but still pretty good from all reports. Sounds like more work than what the product is potential worth to sell.

Do deleted scans count to upload scan total? Queen_City_3D 11 2 yearsJamie (1531): 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
Newer user RE agent questions Christmas3024 5 2 yearsDaveFahrny (172): I am thinking of purchasing the Matterport Camera. Can anyone give me some advise. I can kind of see from the forum that it may not be as easy as presented in the commercials. I am a Realtor in Las Vegas. I make walk through videos of properties and post them on You Tube. I want to be sure of what I want to purchase. Thank You
What do you deliver to clients. markmc90 2 3 yearsalx3D (703): I am interested in what everyone else does. It depends what they pay. We usually send pictures and video with dropbox. Here is a comparison of my options. If anyone wants to list a property for your clients forum members can do it for free at real3Destates.com
New Member Cindiewozniak 2 3 yearsJohnBecker (385): Cindie, other than turning on lights and/or closing blinds, you're pretty much at the mercy of the ambient light. The system handles it reasonably well, for the most part. As for mirrors, just try to mark them as early as you can. Even if they're not all the way visible in the scan, mark approximately where they are and then touch up the mark as the mirror's position is revealed more accurately in successive scans. The biggest obstacle I've...
Expiring a showcase? BrettMtn 10 3 yearsDanSmigrod (12085): @BrettMtn depends :cool: 1. Clients often know; will use their number from marketing tools 2. Our FloorMe service (available to all) calculates SF 3. Measure in 3D Workshop (while time-consuming, we will do screen captures and proved to clients because they find it helpful) Obviously we all would prefer Matterport to calculate SF since many of us charge for our services this way. Please add your thoughts to wish list threads Shooting...
Matterport for pre-construction & 3D models? duke54 2 3 yearsBryn (133): Duke, we can do that for you. PM me if you want to talk . The answer to your question is longer than most of the threads in this forum.
Is this a users forum Tim 3 3 yearsccctucker (154): I agree that it could be both: 1) a place for potential users to get questions answered (maybe a newbie only thread that has a patient teacher type moderator) 2) the rest are restricted to experience users to post. The newbies could read to get an understanding, but can't just jump in and ruin the flow of the conversation with a question on how to plug it in...😄
How is the floor plan created? Coach 5 3 yearsGarySnyder (1315): Coach Why haven't you just visited the Matterport website as all of the questions you have asked are details there except for the scan time for the 3000 sq ft question. You've also ask that in another thread, why not keep the same thread going here and ask the question.
Can the camera produce stills? Coach 2 3 yearsccctucker (154): Yes, but it's more of a screen capture than a traditional still only. But it is an HDR image though
