Sometimes you cannot miss the mirror(s).

I'm so sorry but I just busted up laughing. This is any Matterport owner's worst nightmare isn't it?

I'd recommend using April Tags (new feature) if there are alignment issues, then disable all scans of this area and allow people to jump through with one click.

One of the many things that can keep us up at night worrying about!

When you said your last comment, I could picture myself walking in for the first time and about to scan. Looking at that hallway and saying how the hell am I going to do this?

Thanks for your comments. Honestly, since i had very limitted time, i did not even try to scan in this hallway I just wandered around it.
I did not tried April tag yet, but it seems ı will ned it for a factory scan. Has anyone tried it? Does is extend the shape of scanning area?

@alirizacil I haven't tried it, but will briefly say that you will need to toggle on support under Settings in the capture app. What it essentially will do is identify when an AprilTag is in the scene and it will use AprilTags to help align in complicate spaces. It is primarily for large spaces and can be placed on the floor of factories for instance -- but in this case, I would imagine it might allow you to pass through the hall of mirrors... Matterport's worst nightmare!

While we cover How to Scan with Mirrors with Matterport in this We Get Around Training Academy Video, the example you shared is not one of the scenarios we discuss.

Best,

Dan

P.S. Removing the camera imagery is possible, if Matterport would allow it. Presently, this violates the Matterport Terms of Service.
