Best, Dan - My First Batch! Metroplex360 9 2 hoursMetroplex360 (8194): I'm sure they can handle them. I just wouldn't use snapshots. I can shoot a set of photos with a DSLR faster than getting the shots I want with a Matterport Camera.

Initially iGUIDE is published in the iGUIDE Cloud where it can be configured and downloaded as a zip file for offline viewing or self-hosting.

Houses Selling Too Fast? fotoguy 7 1 day3dvirtualview (103): @fotoguy I have found more interest from businesses and SEO then a single real estate agent. People tell me agents need to invest and do it for the client and not themselves. However al the agents I have spoke to want the Drone more than the MP.. frustrating honestly. I am working on a campaign to promote to businesses as my customers are loving it and the hits on the photos.

Matterport Support Live Webinar for Q&A DanSmigrod 2 3 daysfotoguy (121): I liked parts of the video but none seemed centered on us, the MP Professionl. The one that came closest state at the end "contact Matterport for a quote". I would love a generic video aimed at us MP Professionls. Am I missing something?
Matterport Charge per square foot lmrich73120 6 3 daysVTLV (1111): I wouldn't bank on those numbers. Middle Man companies outsourcing to Matterport pros might get away with that pricing because their marketing budget has been pumped up and beating you out of your own market. Many of us try to make $0.10 a square foot. If there's multiple cameras around you, expect your competition to drop to as low as $0.03 a square foot just to beat you out. Photography services have been taking off the past few years...

No longer providing Matterport services Bill 2 3 daysVTLV (1111): Picking off one negative round of comments at a time with GeorgeK and now Bill by stalking WGA. Hey Bill Brown, Do you really want to roll up your sleeves as a CEO and score multiple wins on your campaign trail for approval? Rather than stalking We-Get-Around with and never commenting publicly.

Question of the Day: which drone do you recommend for a newbie? DanSmigrod 2 3 dayseggardner (349): We use the Phantom 4 Pro in our business because it has all around collision sensors which make it almost impossible to crash into objects. Obviously it depends on budget too as the P4P is on the higher end of the price scale compared to say a Mavic which is also by DJI
Celebratory promotion ideas? Queen_City_3D 1 3 daysQueen_City_3D (1801): Nearing 1 MIL impression! Note: It sucks that Matterport forced us to delete ~200 models with the %!*$#! model hosting limits or I'd be a lot closer to the million views already. I was thinking as my statistics marker nears that Million view milestone that it might be an excuse to run a promotion to build some more business but I haven't clearly thought out the...

Manfrotto 3 Way Tilt Head In Tour MarkCantu 11 4 daysMarkCantu (79): Thank you every one for your advice and suggestions. I bought an additional tripod, Pro Master Professional Tripod Series with a Ball Head. Luckily, I have an independent Camera Shop right by my house. The associate took the time to explain how to use it with my Matterport Camera. My Manfrotto Tripod is heavy weight, which is a good thing and a bad thing. I am taking both tripods to my next project, and will look into the Gemtune DY-60N.

5 Floors scanned, only 4 floors result... angusnorriss 3 5 dayssbl110 (136): I had this happen with a home that had 4 floors (lower, main, upper level and an observatory). The first pass missed the observatory, however, I could reach it with stairs. I went back to fix a rookie mistake in a bathroom, and when I re-processed, the observatory magically appeared. I don't recall if the floor selector was missing the observatory, but it was definitely missing from the dollhouse view. Other posts have suggested to...

Urgent: PLEASE HELP! On site...Matterport capture app crashing AlexTC54 9 6 daysiTours360VR (61): @AlexTC54 Had a similar issue last week that was deduced to be a bad scan that kept closing the capture app. Matterport Support advised me to reshoot the problem area with some overlapping scans as a new project. They were then able to stitch the two projects together.
Airbus 330 ThePhilOnMatt 12 6 daysPedroAvilez (142): Hi Phil I have scan a A330 last year. Pls find enclosed some pics. We have faced several dificulties (alignment problems, distortions due to heat, etc). But at the end the result was really nice. Any doubts pls contact me by PM Best regards Pedro
CUPIX Versus Matterport in AEC Space DanSmigrod 16 6 daysDavidHothersall (55): @DanSmigrod As I suggested I doubt Matterport would be interested in releasing the higher level data assuming it exists. I wonder if Chris @Metroplex360 has done a comparison with a Matterport and a Leica BLK pointcloud of similar spaces to ascertain if there is more data in the BLK? I did a couple of quick tests with Cupix using some previously acquired data from a Matterport scan of what I considered a simple space but it was apparent from...

Large industrial unit complex - shoot help click360tours 15 6 daysclick360tours (31): Ok so what I discovered that caused days of frustration with continuous alignment and overlap errors was due to fast capture setting being activated in settings. once turned off I completed 6000 square meters in 8 hours. I don't recommend using fast capture.
Matterport Versus CUPIX: Publishing a 3D Tour to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 6 daysDanSmigrod (15886): @TrustedPhotoDC Another differentiator between CUPIX and Matterport is that you likely can successfully moderator a CUPIX-->Google Street View Tour with the links that YOU want. As @scott@cupix pointed out (above): A WGAN Member emailed me: "Matterport Spaces have always generated a list of 'nearest neighbors' that Showcase uses. Showcase will calculate the distance to each nearest neighbor upon entering a scan and use...
WGAN Question of the Day: Do you wear branded clothing when scanning? DanSmigrod 6 6 dayssbl110 (136): I also use a local company "" They charge a one-time $45.00 setup fee, then it's $9.00 per garment. The nice thing is that they don't require you to buy their clothing.
