$19/50 additional space block is part of the classic plans/still applicable DanSmigrod 7 18 daysDeeJ (103): If you are on a Classic plan, you are charged $19 for each block of 50 Spaces you are hosting in your account over your limit. Limits are as follows: Basic - 100 Professional - 200 Business - 300 Of course, you can always delete Spaces that you no longer need. If you delete any by accident, just contact and we'd be happy to restore for you.
New Matterport Cloud Pricing Explained; Existing Users Grandfathered In DanSmigrod 14 24 daysbryanhscott (100): @Wingman The fact that MP allowed me to subscribe to a Basic (Classic) account after the May 9 new price/tier roll-out just paid off! I mistakenly forgot to add my 360's to the map before I uploaded for processing, so I did so, then uploaded a 2nd time, believing I would be charged. Then noticed I had missed 1 other 360, so did it a 3rd time. If this wasn't dumb enough, I went back to the first processed tour and low & behold, my missing...
Matterport New Pricing: My Spreadsheet to Help Understand Annual Hosting DanSmigrod 27 29 daysWingman (420): Please read my post above. That way you can move your client either to 8 Starter plans for $80/month(your client will be paying to Matterport directly), 36 Free accounts for 0 hosting cost or a single Professional Pro 129/month(your client will be paying) account for your client. In reality probably only a single Professional Pro plan with 50 active models will work for your client. I do not think Matterport will allow 36 free accounts for...
How to game the new Matterport Pricing DanSmigrod 11 1 monthWingman (420): I started year ago with their basic plan hopping that once I get more orders for Matterport I would upgrade to their next tier plan. But with their new plans there is nothing for me to upgrade to. And it is not because of how much they ask now, it is their stupid "Active model" scheme. My current client alone will have at least 10 models active, possibly for years. Not sure what to do apart for looking for alternatives. I would...

3D Capture and software questions newengland3d 8 3 hoursHome3D (993): When I shoot MP in very dark spaces, I simply mount a battery-powered LED panel on top of the MP camera. As the camera rotates, so does the light. The panels I've been using aren't so powerful but they cost less than $50 and have worked wonderfully. I shot an LA spa called Shape House ("urban sweat lodge") this way. The sweat beds areas are really dark but these worked great. ...

Does re-use MP tours? fotoguy 4 2 daysHome3D (993): @fotoguy - keep in mind that MP tours only exist on MP's servers. If you created the tour, you can simply go into your MP Editor and set the space to "Private". I haven't tried this, but I'll bet it will disappear from or visitors there will simply get a blank screen. This is a perverse benefit of the fact that MP tours cannot be privately hosted. Send a video or your still photos to someone and they "have...

GeoCV Viewer & Tour Editor #66 Release sameerak 5 5 daysMikhailBombin (13): @Wingman , i'd like to correct Sameer's post a bit. If you'll make a set of staged panoramas and put them in the reprocessing tab they would affect the model, but it won't be 100% correct. Model is textured by panoramas (that's why removing reflections would make them disappear in the model too), but this textures are placed on the existing geometry. So if you'll add some posters on the wall it would appear in the model and would look good, but...
