AR/VR Headsets to Hit 100 Million in 2021 DanSmigrod 2 7 daysDannyBasting (667): VR can't go mainstream fast enough in my opinion! For those of you that have been following my work in this forum probably know that I really believe in VR, and that it will be huge in the near future. I absolutely love working with VR, and the reactions of people trying the Vive for the first time are priceless! While I myself am not a big Apple fan at all, it is always good to see Apple get behind something, as it will have a big...

I made a typo/grammar error, (fixed it) thanks for the heads up. I give clients a flat rate for my time. Variables would be equipment and processing time. If use a Nikon D810 and shoot HDR or a ????

Newbie - Changing the start point in VR BobbyG 3 1 monthjustinv (541): @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...

Matteport VR model featuring live chatbot Tosolini 4 1 monthDannyBasting (667): Great job! I've looked in to speech recognition myself briefly a while ago. While it seemed pretty straight forward to integrate it, I had to put it on hold though due to a lack of time. Saying "change flooring material" for example, and have a material palette pop up in front of you in VR would be a great addition. I may have to dive back in to it after reading your post, thanks for sharing :) Danny

Unless you can move through the home the same way as you can with a video cameras with walking shots, a static shot of 360 video isn't different to what Matterport does.

For the record I still believe 100 % in MP technology but just like my first mac I'll wait to see what happens to Matterport and until then support you all fully.

VR Controllers for Samsung Gear & Daydream Woods 2 4 monthsMetroplex360 (4999): @Woods, yes, Daydream's controller does work with Matterport's recent, modestly rolled out update that includes a full version of Showcase built on WebVR specifically for Daydream. Hopefully they'll be adding support for Gear VR Controller on the same platform. As one of our other forum members has pointed out, the Gear seems to 'take over' the phone when you slip it on, so unless they change that behavior, the WebVR version of Matterport...

360 video before and after renovation craigsauer 1 4 monthscraigsauer (922): I posted here a while back with a very simple 360 video I made from a Matterport OBJ file that just spiraled around the exterior of a model, and everyone seemed pretty underwhelmed. But I've moved on to bigger and better 360 videos! I made a few videos of flythroughs that ended with the original exterior dollhouse view, but I held off posting them here because I had an idea for an even better idea: a 360 video that transitions back and forth...
"VR only" option? ArtisticConcepts 3 4 monthshometakes (397): The Trouble with that is that you will set any of the clients that you manage to 'sell' with this VR promotion and their expectations will now be made higher for the better VR tour. If you dont give them the tour that you sold them on, they will be disappointed.

Matterport WebVR + Google Daydream VR Viewer DanSmigrod 9 4 monthsUserName (565): @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....

Inman: 3D/VR listings to skyrocket in 2017 DanSmigrod 8 6 monthsfrstbubble (271): Although some don't believe that clients will come into the office, I think you are able to take the office to them with VR and MP tours. 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 6 monthsDannyBasting (667): 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 6 monthsDannyBasting (667): @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.

Matterport Virtual Reality (VR) SDK Sign-up DanSmigrod 21 8 monthsUserName (565): @DannyBasting - I tested a converted Matterport point cloud in Unity a long time ago. Things didn't work out too well. I might give it another try. Even with a model, I'm not sure we can move to any point in a model since the Matterport camera didn't capture all views from all possible coordinates in a room. Meaning I probably can't, like in a real video game, move 9 inches to the left to see what a table really looks like from that point or...

How to charge clients for Matterport CoreVR? DanSmigrod 9 8 monthsProperty3dNZ (373): 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.
Matterport Custom VR vs Core VR Integratedman 8 9 monthsVRealExperience (115): @UserName TL : DR - If you dont care about the VR industry as a whole, know CustomVR is better due to a better transition and more of an "immersive" effect...not much more to say.

Google Announces Daydream VR Headset DanSmigrod 7 9 monthsHopscotch (61): 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 9 monthshometakes (397): 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...

VR for large spaces BrettMtn 9 9 monthsRobinLycka (697): @BrettMtn With a 360 VR tour with a manual camera, you can move further. Pricing would depend on the layout of the venue. If it´s just one large hall, for trade shows etc, it´s obviously a lot easier to do than if there are 70 rooms you need to show. Either way, I would´t have enough experience with manual tours to price it either.

I checked my models with a newer Android phone and they all work fine. So, despite the fact that the Matterport VR mode is compatible with Android 4.4 and beyond, its functionality will depend on the telephone's processing capabilities and some errors may occur.

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

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.
Disruptive Technology GarySnyder 15 1 yearRRapp (46): @GarySnyder and @smcclell Great input. It might be worth noting here that most of Faro's (and other companies') technology pertains to laser scanning, versus photogrammetry (which MP is using). Both technologies have benefits and deficits of course.

How to Share a Matterport VR Showcase DanSmigrod 2 1 yearShaslip (4): So, do we think there will be a non "Samsung" solution anytime soon. iPhone or Ipad would be awesome. Yes, oculus rift is a little more expensive, but worth it. I would hate to have to buy a unlocked Samsung phone ONLY for this purpose. I am an iPhone guy. Scott

As for the Gear VR experience, is it just me or do the ceiling look like they all are 20'? Everything looks so big (after a while, it seems like our brains manage to scale it back down to "regular" size). Matt
