So, hello from the Greater Puget Sound Region of Washington!

Hi Suzanne,

Welcome. You're not that far from me here in Western Montana.

Hello, all!

I'm the owner of ScanDimensions, a service provider in the Midwest. I'm also the founder/managing partner of a digital advertising and enterprise development agency.

We've been scanning and using the cameras and software since prototype 1 and beta 1. So if you ever have any questions, I should probably be able to answer them.

I'm excited to be part of this forum and am grateful to all of you who support us, especially the Fearless Leader, Mr. Smigrod.

Best!

Angela

Some of you may recognize my last name. Dan is my husband. If you've purchased a camera from him, thanks! You're awesome! Buy another!

Hey Everyone,
Just purchased a Matterport yesterday. I hope I made a good decision. I'm glad there is a forum to resource from as I'm sure I will run into some roadblocks. I am a real estate agent in Orange County, Ca. I'm thankful in advance for any helpful hints or tips. Have a great day

I just received my Matterport camera last week. My husband is going to operate it and produce the videos. I expect to stir things up here on Hilton Head. Many of our home buyers are from outside the area, I think that the opportunity to 'preview' the home from where they are will be a great advantage for my listings. I'm excited to be here and look forward to interacting with ya'll.

Hello everyone! I have been an architectural photographer since 1976. I have always had weird cameras for doing unusual things, like I have a Globuscope which made the transition to using the Matterport a breeze. I used to make QTVRs all the time for real estate but always thought they were gimmicky and of little use. (I created the first QTVR panoramas to be entered into the Congressional Record.) Anyhow, my first 2 models came out very nicely with but 2 errors on the second one owing to a misplaced mirror marker. This technology is what I was attempting to do with QTVR in the early 1990s and is not unlike "vicarious visit" presentations I helped create in the 1980s of NATO missile sites streaming still 16mm single frame Bolex movie images together and linking on a CD which could be viewed in the field by the military. We have certainly come a long way. Looking forward to chatting with you guys.

Hello all. New to Matterport and new to this forum. I run a company called ListingsMagic.com. We got started in the full service virtual tour space almost 15 years ago. iPix anyone? Moved our company more into a brokerage centric marketing platform with RETS access to property information which allows us to build out various marketing tools including "virtual tours" which really are just glorified slide shows.

Have seen just about everything there is in terms of real estate marketing and nothing captured my attention like seeing and experiencing a Matterport tour for the first time. So went out and bought the camera about a week ago and did first home for my wife who is an agent. Incredibly easy and intuitive. No aperture, settings, lighting etc. to deal with. Amazing.

We decided to build out an offering inside of our product set that highlights the home's features but keeps the focus on the impressive and immersive nature of these tours.

Here's our first model layered into our platform. Still have some work to do on the property details side of things as it's still in development mode. Would love to get your feedback.

Best,
Hans

The link isn't loading for me. Just get a holding page from GoDaddy telling me listingsmagic.com is available for purchase!

Hmm - that's strange. I did have to edit it when I first posted it as I forgot the 's' in listingsmagic. If you see the link is missing the s and has it spelled listingmagic. Then just stick an s in there.

Ok, now it is working. Very strange. I didn't change anything, just tried clicking the link again...

I really like the way you integrated the info panel!

strudel67 private msg quote post Address this user
Thanks - still having a developer tweak a bit more. I saw that Tourfactory has created support for the Matterport tours but it's a link inside of their 'virtual' tour. I don't think people want to watch a bunch of still photos first and then have to discover the Matterport option. This should be the focus imo.

Yes! Especially since so often the vast majority of the photos (even when they are taken by a good photographer) are nearly useless for understanding the true layout and features of the home. Like shots of bedrooms generally just show a nicely staged bed. And it is often almost impossible to get good still shots of a bathroom that do it any justice, I think.

Hello Matterport User Group,

I am a residential designer in Philadelphia looking for a new career challenge. I am a tinkerer and gadget guy the kind that owns a 3d printer and quadcopter drone. Suffice to say I found Matterport from a very different professional service interest than real estate photography as it sounds most of you are very experienced with. I am much more along lines of We Get Around Architect and Associate Photographer Yair YĆ©pez having experience with Autodesk software and some laser scanning of commercial buildings.

Couple months ago I learned about Google Project Tango tablet which can scan interior space layouts straight into Trimble SketchUp. So I immediately started looking for other vendors entering the market who might be developing an even better solution. Obviously I found that in Matterport!

Today I stumbled on this forum and felt compelled to devour everything posted all in just one sitting

I am definitely intrigued by this capture and hosting solution and expect I will have many questions going forward.

I gather from all of your open, candid, and positive posts thus far that it will be easy to join your very interesting conversations here.

Thanks for joining the Matterport User Group Forum.

One sitting. WOW! I am curious how long it takes to read 6,500 MUG posts in 650 threads.

Plus, we welcome your unique perspective as a residential designer. Most of the MUG members are Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographers and Real Estate Agents.
