Matterport Virtual Reality (VR) 101: Jump In DanSmigrod 16 15 daysSnap (55): This was a big help and saved me a ton of time, thank you for your input Dan. I have an iPhone so I ended up purchasing a Homido V2 for the purposes of demoing to prospective clients. One thing I had overlooked is the foam backing. How can I make it sanitary for everyone trying it? Is there some sort of disposable film I can purchase?

Matterport Custom VR(Fly-through)& CoreVR srennick 1 16 dayssrennick (295): I was recently involved with a Facebook thread discussing the differences between Matterport CoreVR and Matterport's converting our models to a more immersive fly-through experience (customized VR). I was reading posts that demonstrated to me that many MSP's do not know the difference and were unaware about what their options were. Formally, Matterport would convert our spaces for $250 base price plus .15 per sq. ft. I wanted to share...

Matterport + Google DayDream: fail? ELAN42 5 29 daysmori (463): I also have a Daydream and still the experience is very bad as there is no native daydream app. To get the MP cardboard app working you need to turn of NFC. The WebVR version with the "huge tedious baloons" IMO is not very good compared to the cardboard app.
Samsung VR vs Daydream? Queen_City_3D 2 29 daysDanSmigrod (12895): @Queen_City_3D I have used both. I prefer Samsung Gear VR. With Daydream, there is a remote control that you hold (something else to keep track of) and I did not find the jumping ahead with the remote satisfying. Heading out to dinner. ... Enjoy your weekend, Dan PS buy alcohol wipes for either between different people using ...

Zillow creates new ‘3D Home’ iphone app iTours360VR 11 1 monthfullpreview (154): @EileenB - what you have said is very true and practical, for Zillow. And, you're right - because of the simplicity of performing the video and its inherent "Zillow" value, it should be done... if for nothing else, it's a value proposition. For all the MSPs, please ALWAYS mentioned one, if not the best, USP for a Matterport Tour - dedicated property detail pages! These are the best way for an agent to market the property outside of...
Introducing the vCAD 2.0 Mobile App JonHuber 3 2 monthsJonHuber (25): Hello. Thank you for being one of the first to try it out. The first time you open a web browser, there is a one-time download of 50 MB. After that, things are much faster. Also, just for thoroughness, it's best to use Chrome, Firefox, Safari, ... anything but Internet Explorer. Edge does work, but I just don't trust it. I hope this helps. -Jon

New virtual tour platform jpuma 9 2 monthsjpuma (10): Thanks for the feedback everyone!

CoreVR for Free Until December 2018 mori 8 2 monthsmori (463): MP updated it (fixed typing error in the headline) and it now says "DECEMBER 2017". So in 2018 we should be for a in my opinion still not really great working VR versions, especially not the WebVR base ones. Still it´s a mess to explore MP spaces with Daydream.

San Diego Realtor VLOG on Matterport GeorgeK 1 2 monthsGeorgeK (811): This is meant to be broadcast and was crafted so it could be shared with multiple audiences.

Can you create and offline gallery in VR? tomasdunbar 1 3 monthstomasdunbar (70): Hi all, I recently created a collections vr gallery for a large project I just finished. It was a museum that is split into 20 seperate 3D tours. The collections vr gallery worked great as the client wanted the galleries labelled 1 - 20 in sequence so a viewer could view one vr tour and then press back on the gear vr headset and then go into the next gallery. They need them stored offline for conferences and events. I downloaded them to...

Australian Matterport users help ! Sabrina 12 4 monthsJAX1979 (52): For me one of the biggest attractions to Matterport is the hosting. Lets say you charge a hotel 2k to photograph their lobby and bar, they can then inbed this on their website and use it for marketing. If you charge them a hosting fee of £50 - £100 pm you will get an extra 1.2k p.a. EVERY year. They will not look to re-shoot with another provider as they do not want to pay another 2k Most successful service providers are set up as...

The amount/frequency of images is up to the tour creator.

Virtual Tour versus Video Kevin_iGuide 19 9 monthsKevin_iGuide (121): I believe the last 2 posts speak directly to the challenges faced among virtual tour providers. Are we marketing our services to agents or home buyers? The agents are our paying clients but should we be promoting the services agents (think they) want or the service that we know buyers want. I refer to the annual study published by the National Association of Realtors - Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. For a number of years, the features...
Matterport WebVR + Google Daydream VR Viewer DanSmigrod 9 9 monthsUserName (583): @DannyBasting - I used to do that when I first got my Gear VR. My first mobile VR experience was seeing Cardboard Street View on a Gear VR using the plastic snap method. Then I graduated to the Package Disabler and finally to the Samsung Mobile browser. The Oculus startup screen does not appear when you use that browser. Even using that browser is slower than simply putting your phone into a Cardboard headset that plays immediately....

You take a buyer show them a house, they don't like it so you pull out the iPad or Gear VR and show them a few properties right there. Then they can disqualify some properties and find a few that they do want to go see. So you save time and money (and gas) from running all over the place and only showing them...
2 different VR views. is there a difference? ThreeDImaging 2 11 monthsDannyBasting (964): The difference is in the offset. In order to see depth in real life we use both eyes. The closer an object is to our eyes, the more different the images for each eye will be. The brain will then blend these images and create a sense of depth. In VR the same principle applies. Each eye will look at a different image. In the top image 2 lenses where used (slightly offset just like our eyes). Creating a unique image for each lens. Therefor...
Creating a split-screen video from VR DanSmigrod 4 11 monthsDannyBasting (964): @DanSmigrod These kind of video's are super easy to create. All you need to do is cast your phone's screen to a TV using a Google Chromecast. You'll then record the TV screen and make a video of the person using the headset at the same time. After that you can take both video's on to a video editing software, put them next to each other and make sure the timelines are in sync. Hope this helps.

How to charge clients for Matterport CoreVR? DanSmigrod 9 1 yearProperty3dNZ (508): We are charging $50 NZ dollars for the VR. We decided on this number for a number of reasons - we want people to use the service, therefore it needs to be achievable. We are still struggling to really get MP off the ground with Real Estate with a constant number of scans weekly so having this small additional cost will hopefully not scare them off! We need to cover ourselves for the NZ dollar getting weaker as well.

Google Announces Daydream VR Headset DanSmigrod 7 1 yearHopscotch (79): I agree with all of the comments about the functionality (yes, Matterport VR Spaces should be Daydream compatible asap), AND must also say that it's important that the Daydream viewer looks like hipster-wear and that goes a long way with large segments of the market. Look at the Diamond Rio vs. iPod. Design is just so important, and I think Google has made a very smart move with Daydream from that perspective.
Special Thanks to @GarySnyder with MP2VR DanSmigrod 5 1 yearhometakes (709): Isn't Matterport only charging $19 for VR conversion(starting in January)? Is there that much of a difference between MP2VR's conversion for $75 and Matterports $19? Most agents normally opt for a cheaper price over quality unless the quality is really bad. Also, I hear that Matterports conversion doesn't transition the way they show on their sample VR showcase on the Oculus site. Am I correct in saying that they are using black transitions...
Use a dolly under the tripod davidpylyp 8 1 yearMarcel (331): I love using a dolly. Granted I mainly do commercial scans on average 10000sq ft/1000 sqm. Just push and move.

However, the Venice Beach model appeared to load but stalled when the progress bar reached the end.

I'll also try another model to see what happens. It's handy having the gallery right there in the Gear VR.

Trade Show Advice Acomeau15 5 1 yearProperty3dNZ (508): @Acomeau15 Hi there! We had a booth at a conference earlier this year and hired a large touch screen tv which was incredible! It meant that people had the ability to interact with our MP scans.

ICSF16-MP Adds VR Cardboard/Outdoors/URLs DanSmigrod 13 1 yearjanci (10): I think the stereoscopic VR tour will be still a paid premium service by Matterport, since it has to be more or less manually converted/remodeled. The geometry needs to be cleaned up, so that there's no "jaggedness" from the obj model However, the non stereoscopic version, the 360º view cardboard tour, will be free. It requires no manual input if done by MP, and can be generated more or less automatically. Similar to the service that...

For the average user our solution is more then acquitted. Don't forget just like a MP's VT almost no one has ever experienced VR so they will be more then pleased with our solution.

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
