creating a video with matterport 360 views davem 3 21 minutesdavem (33): @Gladsmuir I saw that you can use mattervid to create a video based on the slideshow made on matterport, was wondering if there is a way to make the video using the 360 panoramic shot taken when creating a matterport walkthrough. So the video would have the 360 shot of all the major spaces. Hope I added some clarity. Thank you Dave

EyeSpy360 versus 3DVista? simbany1 10 4 hoursMarshallartsmedia (50): @andreabortolot Sorry to just get back to you now. They have a bunch of scheduled developments and they also update the software regularly, sometimes every week as they develop new features. in Q3 they have planned moving to working with Z-depth or 3-dimensional space so movement through the model would be more like matterport or metareal. For those of us who use lots of tags this is a game changer because we only need to tag each item...

EyeSpy360 is the virtual tour platform you don't know you're already using DanSmigrod 8 1 daybryanhscott (759): As a long-time real estate agent, working with buyers, sellers and investor/landlords, I agree with @jericreson. Few clients require all that control, unless they are very experienced. Most leave it to the agent to make sure they don't miss anything important. The more experienced just use/need less time to decide on next steps, before proceeding to the next one on their list. Whether in person, or using a 3D tour, I offer the driver's seat...

Google Streetview Trusted Photographer: Any status updates? briangreul 17 3 daysWingman (1312): Google still have no advertising for it.. the last video and research data they did was about 2-5 years ago. So their directory is kind of dead anyway. May be the first 3 photographers listed are found and getting something from being listed there. However if you join now you are going to be at the end of the list in your area & I do not believe it will bring anything. May be their new program with silver, bronze and gold levels will...
Real 3D environments to explore with VR headsets? 6 DoF Levazland 9 3 daysMortenKrog (16): @Levazland I am working with VR everyday in the real estate business here in Denmark. In my opinion, Matterport is useless in VR. The resolution is just not good enough, and will become pixelated in a VR headset. For VR you will need around twice the resolution to get a good experience. I am using Metareal as my platform to build 3D tours. Easy workflow and fairly cheap hosting/subscription. The learning curve is quite steep, but the...
"Should I buy a 4DKanKan Pro 3D Camera and use the 4DAGE Platform?" DanSmigrod 4 3 daysRichardStanton (210): After a read-through of their specifications and other technical data (or lack there of) I would highly recommend you tread lightly.

How do you export full size (12866 x 6433) 360 images from Matterport Pro2? wolfind 10 3 daysWingman (1312): There can be an easy walk around to avoid hosting your tours with Matterport. It won't give you full resolution 360s, only 32MP ones and you won't be able to do it for private properties. However for anything else, you can do scans with Matterport, then publish your tour to GSV, grab it from there with Pano2VR Pro(I am sure 3DVista can do it too) and then you have a completely ready tour made up to real scale and with every 360 linked to build...
What would be a good rate to charge per square foot in Scotland? Gus360 3 3 daysWingman (1312): I cannot say per square foot and I am in Australia so my price is in AUD but I charge $2/sqm maximum unless it is a small under 250sqm space with people walking in it during scanning. For these I will add surcharge as it is harder to do with people interupting scanning process. After 250 sqm my rate goes down in small 5-10% discounts. 1 sqm is about 10.8 sqf and AUD/GBP rate is 0.55 so if you convert it it is $0.1 GDP per sqf it may look...
Help with quality/resolution of furniture in Matterport Dollhouse View? nehuen 5 3 daysDanSmigrod (22089): @nehuen (All Good.) To get the best possible images in a Matterport 3D Tour, use a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera. To get the best possible mesh in a Matterport 3D Tour, use a Leica BLK360 camera/scanner. Unfortunately, while the mesh can be "cleaned-up" (for example, to create a video), it's not possible to upload the "cleaned-up" mess view to Matterport. Best, Dan P.S. Time for a walk. I likely will be slow to reply, if...

Matterport versus Metareal Stage - Comparison article ysabelc 11 3 daysysabelc (135): @Lizzg Used a DSLR (either a Nikon D7500 or a D750 not sure which) + panoramic head for that one, then stitched the images together with ptgui.

Capture 3D mesh (like LiDAR point cloud) with imagery (like Matterport) oshioyi 9 3 daysEaglePrecision (29): You should look for someone who is a 3D model service provider (Reality Capture or Documentation Specialist) and specializes in either Pix4D or Agisoft Metashape software. Both vendors offer 3D model photogrammetry software that can stitch a very accurate model from carefully taken photographs. Pix4D just came out with Pix4D Catch which makes use of the iPad Pro Lidar capability to get accurate depth information. Metashape will take photo...
