How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 30 4 hoursKumar (39): @Wingman, it has already there in place. iMazing, iexplorer are couple i know of. As a user I am uncomfortable with reliability point of view. And from RJ's webinar on facebook you can sense this is the way forward for MP. They are looking at platform game with inviting third party developers than doing in house. While building an eco-system is all well, I feel sad to see the OEM not delivering on basic features directly.

New to the Forum? Please introduce yourself DanSmigrod 595 2 daysIanB (2): Hello folks I'm Ian and I live in the UK, in the north of England. I don't own a Matterport camera yet. I am planning on doing a bit of market research before fully committing, but have set up a website to this end. I now plan to approach a few local estate agents to see if there would be any local interest in Matterport services. The market is structured very differently in the UK, compared to the US, and as 3D...

Highlight Reel Not Working Properly pixelray 1 54 minutespixelray (370): Today; I created a highlight reel like I always do. When someone would click on the 3D Tour link they would go to a page and see a bunch of would see the dollhouse intermittently and it would just flicker. Contacted support and they told me they fixed the problem by changing the starting point and said it was a bug they see sometimes. Well, now the highlight doesn't play...I don't even see the play button to start it. I do see...

Leica BLK360 + Matterport Questions from a WGAN-TV Viewer DanSmigrod 2 7 hoursDanSmigrod (17517): Hi All, These answers are provided by @MikeChawaga Robotic Imaging Group (affiliate link) 1. How far can you be with the capture app for the BLK to send the images to you when you get out of the picture/hide? - If you can see the Leica BLK red logo, the data cannot capture you. You want to keep the capture app opened and under or attached to the stand. 2. If the data is stored on the BLK and you do not use the capture app, if you push...

Question of the Day: How much hosting do you include with Matterport Tour? DanSmigrod 8 10 hoursrzphotoman (983): @Queen_City_3D, I hear you, but that's one of the reasons I advertise that only 6 months are free. If Matterport isn't in by business interest, after six months I can still charge them or delete the file.
Any harm to editing April Tag Vanity Section? Queen_City_3D 7 11 hoursQueen_City_3D (2098): @3dshowcaseuk That's a great tour! Question for you... at what point did you know that you had to get Matterport Support involved with the processing. Was it just stuck in limbo or were you experiencing issues with alignments or other problems?

How would you reply to this request for Matterport Pricing? DanSmigrod 7 14 hoursDanSmigrod (17517): @Chemistrydoc @Shakoure @LoudandClear @Wingman Thanks for weighing-in (and your comments/questions). Here is a summary of what I suggestion to the WGAN Member in a phone call earlier in the week: 1. Keep the rate of $0.14 SQ FT: that's what you quoted on your last project with this Client 2. Don't compete on price. You have a trusted Client. Compete on making your competition irrelevant 3. For this commercial space - leasing - help with...

Accuracy of Matterport ron0987 5 15 hoursDanSmigrod (17517): @ron0987 When Matterport Senior Business Development Manager Tomer Poran is quoted about accuracy of eight (8) percent, I believe he is referring to Cortex created Matterport 3D Tour using panos from a 360º 1-click camera such as Ricoh Theta V or Insta360 One X: not the Matterport Pro camera. Can you write Matterport Support and ask for clarification by Tomer and post the results here? Thanks, Dan

If GEOcv charged $1788 a year for unlimited processing who'd jump ship? hometakes 16 2 daysKumar (39): @hometakes - Realty in India vs US, there is nothing to compare. As you know large part of the pro business is limited to capital cities and independent house concept is pretty much dead for a common man here. Even the villas (so called) priced sky high but are nowhere comparable to the one in US - neither by definition of it nor the quality/worthy of it. For a buyer it is the LOCALITY and PRICE POINT that drives the sales than anything else. I...

Yikes! Has this happened to you when quoting Matterport? DanSmigrod 4 2 daysrzphotoman (983): I include Matterport floor plans with all my jobs.

Full frame mirrorless panos w Cupix vs Matterport's latest and greatest LoudandClear 8 3 daysWingman (62): I just learnt my lessons from dealing with big and inflexible companies with my other business that if they are doing something what they think will increase their profit even if that harms your business you are the only one who can take an action to protect yourself. They would not care and they would never budge. My business partner after being invited into our has received an email from Matterport where they were inviting him to come to...
GSV vs. Matterport izoneguy 2 3 daysMarc (85): To integrate a Matterport tour into GSV do you have to be a GSV "Trusted Photographer"? Yes... 2.) I see it costs $14.95 to integrate a Matterport tour into a Google "space". Is that cost for one year? Or as long as the Matterport tour is active? Not sure - don't use matterport but I'd suspect this is their one time publishing fee 3.) If a client has an existing GSV tour that was shot a few years ago - will the Matterport...
Updates on Google Street View? pixelray 8 3 dayspixelray (370): Wingman - yep; that's my concern - I wasn't seeing his examples translate and carry over to google maps.

Question of the Day: Silliest objection from a real estate agent? DanSmigrod 4 3 daysWingman (62): This one I can try to object. The problem with nausea in VR is poor quality graphic and sudden movements. If graphic is in hi resolution and a VR viewer goes slowly it should not make him dizzy. Poor resolution graphic alone can do it. I have an interesting VR game for PS4 but a developer has made it in low resolution. 5 minutes of playing makes me dizzy. I have a lot of different VR headsets for different platforms and it is very rare...

How do you fix the "red dot" from the Ricoh Theta V? DanSmigrod 5 3 daysTHRHHI (164): Dan it seems to happen about 70% of the time with my images. I think there is probably a sweet spot you can align the 2 lens to the sun to eliminate. No proof just my thought process. Was going to test it but figured it was just easier to remove since i am taking out the tripod. I only use Nadir patch ever once in a while. I find them very annoying when they are on every scan.
