Is there a Maximum number of floors? newview 1 17 minutesnewview (4): I scanned my first 4 floor property today. (3 floors + basement) I started on the first floor and worked up to floors 2 & 3. I then scanned the uppermost step on the stairs headed from the first floor to the basement. Moved this scan to a new floor ( floor 4) and then scanned my way down and through the basement - no issues. Upon processing the unit comes back as 3 floors with the basement and 1st floor mashed into one floor. Anyone...

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?
Max number of scans in matterport model? technodai 7 1 monthtechnodai (4): Thanks everyone! That's pretty encouraging if people are getting good results way above 200 scans. I wish I had thought to try this earlier as I now have two large scans of individual floors but a better approach would have been to scan one floor, duplicate the scan, continue onto the next as 3dshowcaseuk describes above...maybe I'll continue in that way from now on... Has anyone ever successfully joined two scans before? I would assume...

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...

Oddest Thing... Black Squares GeorgeK 14 9 monthsjntooker (109): Just had this same experience. Blackout boxes...they disappeared when I processed but it was weird. I noticed that the black areas appeared after placing trim elements because the scan was fine until then. Luckily, they didn't affect the model. I do suspect it is specific to trimming multi-floor models but haven't been able to pinpoint the exact cause.
Windows Viewed from two sides DigitalImageries 8 10 monthsJonJ (649): 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...

The only thing is, the builder would like to have the whole building. Maybe I'll have to let him know it's not feasible. I just completed a 250 scan - 15,000 sq ft and all went well. I'm glad to know I can get up to 450 scans (@Jamie, did it try to crash at all, while working?) Has anyone done over 450 scans?

While 1 ipad cannot connect to 2 cameras simultaneously I don't see why 2 ipads wouldn't be able to connect to single camera at the same time. Not sure of any added benefit here but might be fun to do a little experimenting :-)

I am going to start bringing up the blown out widows to every client now and giving them the option up front...closed or open. It will look like this and it will look like that...your choice.

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 :)
How much Black is acceptable? Cabrahams 7 1 yearpixelray (241): I have learned to try and avoid it at all costs - but it's just unavoidable sometimes. When you trim around your windows, do you have the red line cutting into what actually looks like the last part of the wall where it begins to get fuzzy or do you just trim the spray only and leave the fuzzy areas? Hope that makes sense

You can use the "trim" process to clean up these anomalies. It is not difficult and only takes a minute. Then you re-upload your file and have it re-processed. They do not charge you for that. I agree with the Beckers regarding taking still captures from the Matterport scans. They are excellent. Most of the time, I...

Matterport Cloud and File Downloads BDPelton 3 1 yearron0987 (541): 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

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

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.

I also saw that when you went outside it was extremely bright which does not work good with this system. 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...

Deactivating sweeps in current workshop MikeLjungbergTvedt 1 1 yearMikeLjungbergTvedt (4): It seems we are unable to deactivate sweeps in the current workshop. We haven’t been able to produce models with the level change function either. Both functions have played a key role in our production method. We have just recaptured a mezzanine in a model initially produced in April and in order to connect the upstairs sweeps we had to capture 2 sweeps downstairs. Since the downstairs scene had changed we were planning on...
LARGE house scans pheller 11 1 yearfalconshakka (67): yea looks pretty good man, you got lucky with the courtyard door, having the door closed in some of your scans almost blocked the entrance, you can only exit through a specific way Doing a large mansion is tricky, especially when you are in a crunch for time...you end up sacrificing the doll house view which ends up leaving a lot of holes in the 3D mesh but the walk through is pretty good...good job man on such a large scan
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
Have You Ever Been Caught? BrianM 7 1 yearmikeE (34): Thanks Bill! Very kind of you.
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...
Yesterday I did my first two scans. BrianM 5 1 yeartradetickers (10): I find the highlight tour guided system to be annoying. Not smooth enough yet. Not yours, just in general.

Upload speeds Kracka60 26 1 yearpixelray (241): Ok, I think I figured this out - at least I hope so anyway. Late last night, I took apart my router. Cleaned it and then reset it and then did some updates. Changed a security setting. Re-uploaded one more time. Woke up this morning and everything was uploaded and I had final 3D models. So, I'm guessing all this was a problem with my router. It's just weird b/c I have done many other uploads that worked fine. If this happens to me...

Blinds Open-Blinds Shut seanminor 4 1 yearDanSmigrod (8722): @seanminor 1. I begin capture with a compass so that, when possible, I do not have direct light into the windows. 2. 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. (All other scans where needed for the Dollhouse, Floor Plan and to keep moving to the next space, BUT these "sunlight" scans get...
Is it possible to extract ALL of the images JonJ 4 2 yearsRenderingSpace (601): JonJ, I don't think you have to worry about the viability of Matterport. They're hiring like crazy, receiving tons of VC, and partnering with large firms across the world. In the end of the world scenario, if they were to go bust, I'm more than willing to bet a 3rd party application would be released allowing existing models to be hosted.
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.
Matterport Staircases-Bottom Up or Top Down? DanSmigrod 15 2 yearsHarlanHambright (685): 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...

Improving My Scans THRHHI 3 2 yearsTHRHHI (136): Thanks for the input Jamie. I understand what you said using the workshop. I went and researched and like your idea of shooting the closets if for nothing else to capture the data to fill in the dark spaces. That has been annoying me. Next on the list is the video aspect for my wife's real estate videos. So far the screen capture is way to choppy for my liking. I have tried several that i already have but not happy with the results. Always...

Scanning Levels not physically connected Conor 7 2 yearsccctucker (151): If you had a staircase, you might connect the scans through it and then just turn off the scans in the model...just an educated guess-i havent tried it.
What's the average processing time? CarlosFHdz 11 2 years3dHouseScan (52): UPDATE: After 12 hours of processing and emailing/calling Matterport, my model is complete! Weird part is, I didn't receive an email saying that the model is ready to view. Oh well. When it doubt, reach out.. to Matterport. https://my.matterport.com/models/Xq2o9b33FjQ
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

Matterport Car Charger Inverter Cable (USA) http://support.matterport.com/support/solutions/articles/1000090717-additional-matterport-camera-chargers-and-charging-in-a-car Because the iPad will not go 12 hours on one charge, I always charge the iPad Air via a battery in my pocket. iPad batteries...

Anybody body know virtualwalkthrough.com? gofastpro 15 2 yearsal9901 (55): I have seen this too. I wouldn't get too caught up with these 360 photo tours. As Gary said, the future is 3D. I met with one of the countries largest real estate brokers here and they were trying to work out how much it cost for them to back out of a deal they signed with a 360 photo company because they liked the Matterport captures so much better. 360 photos have terrible problems with fish-eye; the photo is projected on to a 3D sphere and...

Some scans not registering? EricThomas 5 2 yearsEricThomas (109): The area I am having trouble with is an outdoor covered patio. Sun was going down and this patio is huge...Its about 12-15ft wide and the covered ceiling is about 12ft high. So there was plenty of shade in my opinion, but Im guessing I was wrong. The funny thing is once I use the dollhouse view to access those points I can move freely between them. If I want to come back inside the house I am unable to reach the scan closest to the door but...
MP Capture App Kept Crashing Out GarySnyder 10 2 yearsGarySnyder (1177): Update from Bob at MP support Hello Gary, I suspect you have already heard this through the grapevine but since it had been a few days since we chatted thought i would update you directly. While there continues to be investigation into the cause of this issue, there is some indication that it is memory related. Engineering is currently working on some improvements in this area which will likely make their way into the next release of the...

25,000 sq/ft TrueSpaces 8 2 yearsDanSmigrod (8722): @TripleSpaced Wow! I wonder if 25,000 sf is the record. I recently created this 16,000 sf model with 212 scans. (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. I had managed our client's expectations that we might need to deliver as two separate models since officially Matterport supports up to 10,000 sf and update 200 scans. Plus, manage...
