How to improve the Matterport Dollhouse View DanSmigrod 10 13 hoursDanSmigrod (10966): @CelisNet Yes. Thanks for your patience; later this week. Dan
How many scans to become proficient? dtavres 7 3 daysjustinv (532): 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...

Matterport MIrror FIx viewnvisit 3 1 monthMetroplex360 (4999): 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.
LIDAR Scanning with Drones DougTse 2 2 monthsfrstbubble (271): Depending on the desired output requested you shouldn't need LIDAR pictures should be good enough. If you are looking for wire connection issues then infrared would be best.
Did I miss something? justinv 9 2 monthsrpetersn (1279): Hi all... Sorry for the delay in posting here, was away from the screen today. From what I can tell, it sounds like all of the issues being described here are related to iOS. Matterport is aware of this issue and is fixing things up...if they haven't already. Thanks & have a great rest of your weekends! Cheers, Ross Peterson WP3D Models

Brain Teaser: Scanning 1 Floor as 3 Floors? DanSmigrod 9 2 monthsArtisticConcepts (385): 1. Tours will be viewed in VR and you are accommodating for viewer perspective options (taking into consideration special needs and children). (See also: Request for Matterport Pro "no later than April 10th" for Furniture Showroom" ) 2. Each floor would represent a different scan height (or viewer perspective). 3. There is matching scan data (which would be needed even if there were actually three floors) so you get...
Deleting Matterport Models on an iPad davidpylyp 5 3 monthsMetroplex360 (4999): @davidpylyp @Queen_City_3D Matterport has sent out several surveys over the past six months including potential features that MSPs would like to see. If I remember correctly, they've been polling MSPs to see how important restoring models from the Cloud would be. I'm hoping that everyone voted and continues to vote in future surveys for features like this!

Example: Hiding a Camera from a Mirror Metroplex360 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (4999): @qpoisson In this thread, I'm just posting something that I did that I thought was a little bit ridiculous, but that worked nicely. There's no way to replace image files that are uploaded to Matterport. I have published a proof of concept at matterapps.com that uses a custom proxy to inject edited files at runtime - however, there's a serious performance hit in this method not to mention that it's a TOS violation, therefore, this is NOT a...
How does Real.Vision measure floor plans? khaled 2 3 monthsJuMP (511): @khaled I am not a user of RealVision, can't answer your question. But I am working on how to measure floor plan for Matterport space. If you are Matterport user you can try our measure tool JuMP-ME at http://www.iit3d.com/JuMP-ME/index.html We use the OBJ result file from Matterport which include a real value of dimension in it. After loading it into Chrome browser we calculate the projection area for the measurement. BTW "Magic...

3D Showcase vs Direct Sunlight Conditions matthew 6 3 monthsJonJ (874): 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....
Self inflicted mirror aristepp 5 3 monthsaristepp (40): no, I didn't see anything that looked abnormal at all. I am confident that it can be fixed. Has to be my oversight, somewhere.

Quick Trimming Question Joelbcollins 3 4 monthslisahinson (709): @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!
Is it possible to edit or blur? BobbyG 10 4 monthsBobbyG (28): Although I don't know about the tech of the google cams, Not too sure I would do that. I've seen the finished work for interiors from them. Matterport images and the 3D walk through is more impressive. Pros and cons to everything.

Weirdest Matterport Model of 2017! Networker 9 4 monthswalk360 (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?

scanning Problem: camera/ipad kept freezing 3SixtyNow 5 4 months3SixtyNow (112): I've only had my camera for 1 1/2 months. This is only the 3rd model I've done. The iPad is new and has nothing else on it. I rebooted the iPad and camera and that did the trick. This is just very time consuming if it's going to happen all the time.
351,000 SQ FT Scan: Best Scanning Solution? DanSmigrod 23 5 monthsGannon (4): The main output of the scanner is a colored point cloud.

She assured me that she was checking the tripod etc.... a few days later she did admit that there had been a movement in the camera warning - she kept the scan and carried on (again and again) - then she mentioned that the plate was loose... I would suggest that this is whats happened here! I had never seen...

New MP-ad & landing page for Pointcloud mori 15 7 monthsAlex_iGuide (232): 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...
Why is the wall bending in? Dolloff 5 7 monthsDolloff (85): Hi Everyone, Thank you for the wonderful feedback and advice. After making copies and deleting some scans, I went back to the space and just re-shot that area. Matterport explained it as "Loop Closure"- It is a very large space, so if each scan was just a touh off, by the time you close the loop, the scans are a lot off. It is a very large space, so I was thinking about starting with the walls first and then filling in the...

Google launches Tango AR smartphone system GarySnyder 23 8 monthsUserName (565): @JC3DCX - That was my concern not only about price but feasibility. A realtor would probably have to keep adding office space just to hold his physical dollhouses unless the realtor could print dollhouses on demand AND make them vanish when they're no longer needed. I keep forgetting we're still living in the 21'st century but maybe in the future, every tech device we think of as amazing may sit in the antiquated devices section of a...

And at the point in time when they where made available I do not have a choice but accepting the t&c. Could Nikon, Cannon etc just update their conditions and not give us the raw files either?

For example, we want a wide shot of the kitchen for the Matterport Spaces 3D Tour "thumbnail" ... So, we would like to scan from the corner of the room. That same scan, we want to hide after we use it as a "thumbnail" ... no can do. Seems obvious to all of us. (The good news is Matterport reads every word of the We...
Aligning Scans Distinctive360 4 9 monthsJohnLoser (178): Here is my very first test scan. It had alignment issues.

Problem with bright reds, oranges and yellow manolohk 5 10 monthsmanolohk (49): So I just wanted to update you guys. The response from Matterport was that they are releasing a color correction firmware and that I have to "reshoot" the place. Oh and they say "Sorry" as well. I find this kind of issues unacceptable. This was a huge client for me and now its lost. Beware of this lighting problems.

I was just thinking that hundreds of links to scans get posted daily and surely FB is not disabling every Matterport users account. The click bait thing sounds reasonable... I didn't make that connection. Explains a lot.

Ceiling height and trim jntooker 3 11 monthsjntooker (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.

First Scan Tips & Advice tomjones2787 2 11 monthsJonJ (874): Hi @tomjones2787, First of all, I will say that overall, this was a good scan. You did a good job with the scan placement. 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...

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....
Need tips and advice on shoot ben629 3 1 yearron0987 (607): @Ben629, I think it looks good, I think the time of scan was good, obviously its a business where the time you can scan is limited, but with the windows up front you were not dealing with sunlight on top of everything else.
Scans Appearing in Wrong Places BayAreaAdam 5 1 yearJC3DCX (730): I have experienced the same on previous scans, especially with sunlight interfering with the camera's infrared sensing. I just keep a watch on where it place a scan and if wrong delete immediately, move camera closer to previous successful scan and try again.

Windows Viewed from two sides DigitalImageries 8 1 yearJonJ (874): There are a number of reasons to mark windows that are apparent in the final product. 1) If you mark the window, in the dollhouse view, the image on the window will be fixed. 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. If the window was not marked, often times they will appear as black holes in the...

Sunlight Issues Inside Homes BayAreaAdam 9 1 yearJonJ (874): @steve3d your comment is true. However, if you strategically position the scan away from the window, but still encompassing the "black hole" this should not pose a problem in the dollhouse view.
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. Can we crowdfunding a new platform XXX by Kickstarter or Indiegogo? If it works, all matterport 3D users all over the world can list their works easily. What's your thoughts?

Feature Idea - Zenith/Nadir Photo Correction Metroplex360 7 1 yearron0987 (607): Metroplex360 I totally agree if it would not extend processing time, but like you said if it could do that, then a simple skin or mask for the camera in the mirror would be great or a slight color adjustment here or there would be another great feature.

When to mark? DigitalImageries 4 1 yearHarlanHambright (844): 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.
Available Scan of New Construction Wonderdawg 6 1 yearGarySnyder (1228): KRP If you want to offer a service like this which I think is a very good idea you would be far better off shooting pano's of each room as you can host them or even offer them to the home owner to save on their PC, NAS or memory stick. If you offered this service in a MP format and your were very successful and shot 1,000 homes you would have to pay a fortune to MP monthly for ever. The other issue is MP going to be around in 5 or 10 years as...

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 also saw you could not come in from the outside on the patio, was the sliding glass door ever shut? But back to the original issue, you usually see the missing rooms when you do multiple floors and trim tool not...
Pleasant surprise.

Suggesting different agents is not a practice I would want to do when they have someone already. I would just want to promote the services. It's good to know then that as an agent you would be OK the seller speaking with you about it once they found out about the service. The association and that they email blast for you is a great tip!

Why was a new Floor Created?? KenBanks 4 2 yearsKenBanks (7): @Daniel1977 There are only physically 3 floors in the house. However in the showcase model, over on the bottom right where you can select the floors, the software created 4 floors for some reason. Standing out on the patio is floor 1, then a step inside the basement is now listed as floor 2. That should all be Floor 1. I had this issue once before but there was an obvious bad scan. I don't really notice anything strange in this model.

After finishing the first one, I got halfway up the stairs to the second one.
