Blinds open, Closed or partial closed305

Hi all, I am curious about this. In the instructions in says to close all blinds, curtains, etc. We had a company do two 3D's for us before we purchased our own camera. The company who did the 3D's for us had the windows partially open. On one we did we had the windows blinds half open and you could see the backyard. Which is the best way or recommended. I did notice the 3D tour was a little bright.

The only problem I've ever run into was direct sunlight. The camera doesn't like it. If you don't have the sun streaming in the window, you'll usually get a good scan.

Hi Ron,
Really depends on how much sunlight you are fighting. On nice cloudy days I would leave them completely open.

Yep, direct sunlight will kill you ... the infrared can't handle it. The Matterport is a bit of a vampire ...
