(Coming Soon) Capture Outdoor Scans with 360º Views

Give your viewers the complete property experience with Matterport


Dear Matterport Customer -

Matterport has always given you the most immersive, realistic online 3D walkthroughs of interior spaces. Now, we are excited to announce 360° Views - the ability to add outdoor scans to your Matterport Spaces! 3D Showcase viewers will be able to experience sweeping exterior views in 360°, as well as the inside 3D view that’s just like being there.

What are 360° Views?

360° Views are 2D spherical images associated with your Spaces, where a viewer can look up, down, and all around. They are captured with the Matterport Pro Camera along with your 3D scans. Use 360° Views in areas where 3D alignment is not possible (such as in bright sunlight), for an outdoor Hero Image, or for unattached buildings (such as sheds, or pool houses).




With this unprecedented fifth view, Matterport now provides the most complete experience of a property currently on the market.

The Complete Property Experience from Matterport

- Give buyers the feeling of actually walking through a Space with Inside View.

- Show how the entire property fits together with Dollhouse View.

- Understand layout in a snap with Floor Plan View.

- Capture outdoor shots and share sweeping exterior perspectives with 360° Views.

- Immerse your audience even more with Spaces in Virtual Reality.

- 360° Views will be released later this month! Keep an eye out for the official launch, complete with how-to guides, FAQs, and examples.

If you have any questions, please contact us on our support site.

Thanks!

The Matterport Team

Hopefully, 360º Views gets released by the end of August 2016, as promised.

Matterport announced Mattertags at Inman Connect 2015 and it took a year before it was launched; and another year to add clickable links. (Just today: Tuesday, 2 August 2016)

The BIG QUESTION is how does one activate this badly needed feature. It would be nice to know since we're all MP customers. I just tried to call MP but as normal only got voice mail from everyone I tried.

Will there be some sort of firmware upgrade required to existing cameras? This is great timing because I have an outdoor amphitheater to do next month.

What are the main perks of having this one 360 shot outside?

I've always done outside shots that connect with the model inside

I'm on my way to the 7th Heaven, just hope it's implemented as promised. Have a few projects with outdoor scans to do. Hope there will be a way to do software update on camera via WiFi if needed, otherwise it's going to be a costly exercise sending camera back to USA from South Africa.

So that explained the start parameter for 'outside'. Does not see this coming! I wonder if photo only scans will complete faster as 3d data is not being captured.

I am really curious how they are going to implement this. Still, I think it is a great step forward if we do not have to worry about what time of the day to scan or to find exactly the spot with shade to walk out.

@leeverdon

I imagine that it will be a a firmware upgrade.

I will chat with the Matterport team at Inman Connect this week and ask them about Outdoors and other announcements.

Got this response from Matterport Support:

"Hi Lee,

When we release the software it will be a feature that is part of the Capture App. If all goes well 360° Views will be available later this month".


Thanks,

This was totally my idea. Check the forum wish lists and you'll see that I envisioned this a long time ago.

It sounds like it is just going to be an optional view you can click to, like the dollhouse view and floor plan view.

I like it, but I think it's kind of problematic. I've been trying to do 360 exteriors with the Ricoh Theta S, and I often end up not using them because so much of the view is unattractive. Inside I can hide the garbage cans and dog beds, but outside is another story. Garbage bins, ugly cars parked on the street. Construction next door, etc.

I think the best option for showing exteriors is probably already available in Ross's WP3D, just using a nice exterior photo as the preview for the Matterport Space.

I believe these recent announcements put to rest the idea of a new matterport camera as matterport is obviously focusing on enhancing the current camera functions.
It seems a bit redundant to give all these new functions if you were to release a new camera as most selling point disappear for it.

@DanSmigrod Hey Dan! Would you mind giving some more information about the "clickable content" you mentioned for the mattertags? Or please indicate me where I can find out more about this.

Many thanks!

This is my first question in the forum. Greetings from Chile!

@NestorSarmiento

Welcome to the Matterport User Group Forum and thanks for asking your question. (And, please introduce yourself in the "New to MUG? Please Introduce Yourself Here" thread)

In this MUG Forum thread, I interview a Matterport team member about the new Mattertag feature (coming soon).

ICSF16: Video: Matterport Adds Google Cardboard VR, 360º Views and enhances Mattertags

In this thread is the Matterport press release that includes the Mattertags announcement.

ICSF16: Matterport Press Release: Google Cardboard VR 360º Views and Enhanced Mattertags

The clickable link Mattertag will be available by the end of the 3rd quarter 2016, according to the press release.

Best,

Dan

I wonder if the scans need to be spaced as close together with the IR turned off...
