Hi everyone! Here is my first paying scan. Please go through it and give me pointers for improvement. I definitely learned that camera placement path is pretty important to a smooth tour. I was really glad that I was able to scan the decks since they are a huge feature of this home.

Any pointers are very welcome!

PS: This is the referral I received thanks to the We Get Around Network! Thanks @DanSmigrod!

Thanks,

RichieRichKs

Looks nice, one thing though, how low did you set the camera? Looks quite low.

Also, there seems to be a glitch in one of the ground floor bedrooms. This could be something to do with a mirror placement?

@JuMP Thanks! I did use your earlier version to calculate it when I got finished.

@VRPM It was set at about 4' 6". There was a conversation on here about that and a lot of people said that they kept it around there. Also, it is common for real estate photographers to shoot from this height. They say that you want to see floor more than ceiling. I probably should have gone higher considering the high ceilings.

What is the glitch? Is it the half circle inside the door? I wasn't sure what that was about.

i would guess the mirror markings are not marked or backwards in the masterbath. I have even marked them as windows before! Go in workshop and go into mesh mode. You should be able to figure out where that is coming from if you go into that room.

Everything else looks good. If possible, I would try to do scan in straight lines.

One other thing, I like how you dodged mirrors but I would do a safety scan in the doorway of the bathrooms. You can hide that in workshop. Is what will happen is it will align while you are there but aftwards you cannot go into the bathroom. It will only take a couple of extra minutes each job. I promise it is better than having to go back to get the bathroom.

@justinv Thanks! Yes, I learned the bathroom doorway thing the hard way this time......I had to go back.

I just looked in the Capture app and saw that where I marked the bathroom mirror somehow was out in the bedroom. Do I have to fix it in Capture and then re-upload it? If I do that, will that add another instance of the tour? That's what happened when I added the additional scans I went back for.

Yes you will do it in capture app and upload it again. It will give you a new url but it will not charge for another upload.

OK, thanks @justinv !

The funny thing is, I don't remember it being that way when I first finished the tour. I ordered the floor plans, do think there is a way that they could have moved it?

Is there a way to delete the old versions so they don't take up space? Also, Will I have to do snapshots, and highlight reel again? That would really suck!

No because they capture app is the only place to move it.

Yes you have to redo everything. What else did you have planned?

Do you use WP3D models? If not, you should!

I normally don't use the highlight reel but when I do, I name the pictures. You do this in workshop. Go to the snapshots and when you highlight one, a box on right will come up. Just change the name they call it. If you cannot figure it out, I will login and tell you play by play!

I haven't named the pics. I was going to use the highlight reel for the guided tour. Is there another way? She also want's a video of the tour. I do use WP3D models. I know this will help keep the external links that I am using the same.

Video of tour? Guided tour that plays automatically?

Yeah, when you push the play button on the lower left corner and it goes through the snapshots in the order that you set them up and pan in each location. I don't really know of another way to do it.

Yeah, that's pretty cool! I saw that on one when you posted it the other day. I will do that on the new upload. At least I will be able to record the video off of this tour since it doesn't seem to affect that.

I've been trying to figure out how she can use the tour with websites like Zillow, Fizber and Forsalebyowner.com since you can't put it there. I have built her a single property website so she can link to it.

@Richierichks

You can put a video on zillow.

Look at the first picture.

My wife doesn't have an active listing because she just started, but as soon as she does, I will figure out how to put Matterport up there!

@justinv

Very Nice! Maybe someday I'll be that good! Approximately what did you charge for that shoot? Did you do the photography and drone photography too?

It would be awesome to be able to post to Zillow! If you figure it out let me know!

Thanks for your help!

I wish I could claim that as my work! I am just getting into video and I happened to see that video go across Facebook. I looked it up and there was the video in picture slot #1! I can guess but not sure how much he charged for that. I know someone who he did a 2-3 minute video for and charged almost $3,000. I would guess about 1/2 that?

I think Zillow charges like $149 to p0st professional video unless the realtor is a premier agent.

I asked someone who does a lot of videos and they said they don't have to pay. Zillow has a program for photographers and you upload 10 videos. If they like them, they continue to let you do it. If not, it is $150.
