How to Backup Your Matterport Spaces on iPad DanSmigrod 28 10 minutesKumar (12): No surprise, looks like they have a strategy in place for earning extra bucks by letting third party develop and pay royalty to MP for all such features. Meanwhile focus on building crappy tours with cheap cams aiming for more subscriptions.

Matterport Pro 2 vs. Insta360 Pro 2 Thea_VR 3 1 hourizoneguy (123): The Matterport 2 can shoot 360 panos outside. You just won't have data to go along with it. You can kinda get them lined up with the rest of the tour. My only gripe is that you cannot replace the big green 360 puck with your own image.

I am sure most others do feel the same. I am always questioned by the audience about the nadir patch with 360 videos and for sure unhappy clients of MP with two fold of it and that too with huge space eaten.

Updates on Google Street View? pixelray 4 1 dayTakedaSan (65): Hi @pixelray , When I do Street View with DSLR and one shot cameras, I use to make some shots on the middle of the street in front of the company entrance and include it on the tour, so sometimes the viewer is "walking" on street view and click on the front of the business and get inside. So this point is automatically connected with the point of the street made by the Google car. On the old Street View Editor we could connect it...

Cupix versus Matterport: Construction Project Progress Monitoring DanSmigrod 2 2 daysron0987 (1037): Definitely a great feature for several businesses, but also what I would think insurance companies would want for before and after shots.
Public details for a tour Wingman 8 3 daysHome3D (643): There is a brilliant suggestion here, which is a shortcut in the general direction of GeoCV's genius 'inside / outside' 3D modeling. Geo's system which provides 3D both inside and out is best, but as a simpler "half solution" it would be cool to be able to take an aerial from 400 ft legal maximum, looking straight down on a property, and then take this flat, 2D image and place is at the ground level of a Matterport dollhouse view. ...

Are you using to buy in USA and Ship Internationally? DanSmigrod 6 3 daysAntonYakubenko (527): We can currently sell only in the US and ship only to the US addresses. But in my personal opinion (not speaking as a company representative), if you find a way so can you buy and get shipment in the US, and then somehow get the device to another country, which is your sole decision and responsibility, why not?.. We can't advise anyone to do so, but I believe we can't also stop anyone from doing so. Just in case, here are the dimensions and...

Matterport 3D Tour Shot with An Insta360 One X DanSmigrod 9 3 daysShakoure (190): The Insta 360 One X has a lower mp count than its predecessor, but makes up for it with better lenses (f/2.0 compared to f/2.2). While the X also has HDR, it doesn't seem optimized for a wide variety of lighting situations. While this may not be a huge deal when viewing on a small screen, it is a value issue when zooming in for more detail. Overall, even the new Insta is still quite behind what the Pro2 can produce. But in the long term, it's...

Any good tripod for a Matterport camera with legs locking? Wingman 3 3 daysGladsmuir (40): Manfrotto used to do a Triaut which had central bracing and goes up to about 12 feet. I bought one in 1979 and it's still going strong. It does weigh a ridiculous amount.

Tip: How to create a 3D aerial fly-in with DroneDeploy and GeoCV DanSmigrod 7 5 daysAntonYakubenko (527): I doubt it would work. As I described above, shooting for 3D model extraction from aerial images using photogrammetry requires many images all around the house taken with large overlap. I doubt externally sourced imagery would be sufficient. Moreover we require regular images, not 360 panos for 3D model extraction. 360 panos though could be used as Highlights and Fly-through in addition to 3D scan.

Insta360 One X Owners/Users - Tips, Tricks, Issues? RichardStanton 4 5 daysRichardStanton (59): Some initial observations - in my test runs so far I have noticed small to mid level issues with the calibration on the Insta360 stitching. I will acknowledge that I am a particularly pixel sensitive person, but after looking at 3 different units there seems to be a consistent level of artifact abrasion at the base of the seams for all of them. Has anyone else noticed this behavior? I ran a small calibration test using a rough grid mapping and...
'Matterport Cortex gets quick 3D from 360° photos using AI/Computer Vision' DanSmigrod 4 5 daysDanSmigrod (17450): @htimsabbub23 Matterport is not presently offering floor plans, according to a rep in the Matterport booth at #ICNY19. That said, it would be great to try to place an order and see what happens. You could always use a laser measure for a couple of keyeansurementa and let WGAN Premium Members Blue-Sketch or MP2FP know the key measurements to scale the floor plans correctly. Thoughts? Dan

Linking 360 views izoneguy 9 5 daysizoneguy (123): Hello Charles, Yes I understand how the 360 views work and with just one 360 view it is pretty simple. I took 360 views all around the house. The problem I was having was getting all the 360 views to look at each other. The 4 in the front and side of the house all see each other. It was views 5 and 6 that would not see 1-4. I did get 5 and 6 to see each other but then I could not get 5's Green puck on a good place inside the house so I...

Matterport Versus GeoCV: Which 3D Tour viewing experience do you like Best? DanSmigrod 16 5 daysangusnorriss (322): For me it’s got hallmarks of switching from Android to iPhone. Functionality aside it was all about UI amd UX and geocv wins. It’s not necessarily a price war for camera owners but what sells more when you go to town.
