How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 30 1 monthKumar (106): @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.

I got a city library that didn't offer it, then I was told the county library does. So I go to the county and nobody knows anything about, no material around to gain access. So I have paid for it each year not knowing if the certificates stay active or not. @@Richierichks - Are you able to link your Lynda to Linkedin still and save your...

Video: Insta360 ONE X: 12 Tips and Tricks DanSmigrod 2 9 hoursahojman (105): If you have a Matterport camera, I think there is no reason to use it at a Virtual Tour. - Quality not good at all without HDR. - Ipad crashed more than 20 times when we tried to change between camera and the other one. - Some alignment issues, so we had to repeat some photos. Really we could not understand what was Matterport`s idea with this change. If they want to invite more people to know Matterport, we think this was not the best way.
Matterport hosting question: if I set some of my spaces to private... Buschstu 9 10 hoursBuschstu (24): Dan thanks so much for your insights. I agree 100 percent on the recuring charge. Just hope i have not under priced the hosting so far .(At 10.00 for the year )That they will not want to pay higher monthly fees for hosting.Unless i lower the shooting fee.Nice thing is they cant make me re-shoot too much 1) they dont give much time before the move in to shoot 2) because once rented they have no acess

Matterport Pro2 3D Camera versus Using Matterport with 1-Click 360º Cameras DanSmigrod 7 19 hoursDanSmigrod (17839): Hello Redacted, I recommend that you invest in a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera (rather than using either an Insta360 One X or Ricoh Theta V (or the Ricoh Theta Z1 that is scheduled to begin shipping 11 April 2019. Because you are a professional real estate photographer AND you have a large client that wants you to shoot Matterport, you (and your client) are likely to be much happier with the Matterport 3D Tours when shot with the Matterport Pro2...
Aleta S2C camera review & comparison to Matterport izoneguy 9 19 hoursizoneguy (212): OK thanks, I will keep working through it. I am almost done with the video for that coach so they want to launch it all at once. I have uploaded an image capture to show the link is present in the Spaces details. The Matterport tour along with the Mattertags will be a more effective selling tool than a brochure but this client still wants he brochure, photos etc. I was going to experiment with doing an outside then inside 3D tour, since there...

I understand this kind of customers as those trying to save on an agent commission but tours are a marketing thing and also a tool that are supposed to make process of finding buyers easier and run it without scheduled inspections. I know inspections alone can be a big pain for this type of...

Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time DanSmigrod 13 3 daysMetroplex360 (8998): Kudos. We're all here, all online, all in the field to build our businesses. Whether it's to take care of our family, or build ourselves and our lives up so that we can gain traction in life - WGAN has always been a great place to connect with other people, share what we've learned, and make friendships.

Ricoh Theta errors after creating tour tomjones2787 7 3 daysMetroplex360 (8998): You have holes in your floors. Because of this, the puck sinks until it lands on a floor. In Capture, I would imagine that you should have seen holes in the floor before uploading. If you did not, then this would be of interest to support, I would imagine. My 2c - don't do paying jobs with an insta360 or Theta V. While I do not speak for Matterport, I do not believe that they are marketing 'Cortex' for professional use.
Top 5 types of jobs do you do? GlennTremain 6 3 daysrzphotoman (1070): I sell my service by saying you don't need to hire a traditional photographer. I include still images pulled from the Matterport Pro 2 scan that are a close match to the HDR photos most have been getting. To achieve this I scan with the Pro 2 set at 4' 3" and then batch run all the still images I pull from the scan through Aurora HDR at a custom setting I made. My clients love them and the only still images I take with my DSLR are some...

May I get your help with this few-minute WGAN Forum Survey? DanSmigrod 19 4 daysDanSmigrod (17839): @Kumar If you look at the search results of the Matterport website example, it is returning search results from August 20, 2016 and January 17, 2017. That does not look very helpful. We have been using Google for search because it returns WGAN Forum search results that are most helpful. Our current thinking is that Google does a better job doing search than we could do on our own. The trade off is that the results includes Google Ads. Any...

Should I return my Matterport Pro 2 camera? Drone360vision 10 4 daysJune (262): Yes now that the Beta version is coming to an end for the Theta V and Insta One it won’t even be possible to use those if you already have an account with Matterport. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I thought I read somewhere (or in Dee’s video) that it would only be available to people that don’t already have an account with Matterport.
Techniques to enter a new market using 3D tours Drone360vision 1 4 daysDrone360vision (11): As a new service provider of 3D tours, after previously offering relatively low quality 360 tours. What techniques did service providers use when first starting out? Particularly for real estate, corporate, hotels etc Did you get a killer example and use that to push the tours? Did you visualise the deliverables and provide a succinct document with ROI/greater traffic to websites etc Any insight is welcomed, Thank you!
