Adventures in high scan count models. briangreul 12 2 hoursbriangreul (418): I believe it was. My deliverable was the completed scans so I don't know what finally happened or how they ultimately used it. The space was a vacant hospital and there were parts of it that were unscannable. Even with Apriltags I couldn't reliably scan in the bathrooms in each patient room. As it was I had to deploy the Apriltags in a fairly high density. I would have needed too many to scan the bathrooms. I personally didn't see the...

WGAN-TV: Intro to 3DVista Virtual Tour Pro with Kevin Dole of Home3D.us DanSmigrod 2 6 hoursdenlee (63): Dan, can you please ask Kevin if there's a way to make dragging a panorama in 3DVista move the way we have come to expect from other 360/3D systems? 3Dvista does the opposite of what you would expect. Also, can you please ask him if he knows of any printable shortcut 'cheat sheets' for 3DVista? Thanks.

How to set the starting point of a Zillow 3D Home Tour? DanSmigrod 5 14 hoursChemistrydoc (1306): So, on the Zillow listing itself, the first tour that you encounter (right under the main property image) will have a seemingly random start position that cannot be edited and is not related to shoot order, or any other discernible factor. The SECOND instance of the tour, which appears just below the photos, will have the start condition as you select it with the info above. Also, if you use a link to access the tour, it as well will start as...

Question of the Day: How do you calculate SQ FT for Invoicing your client? DanSmigrod 4 16 hoursSkeeter (126): I use the county records to get SqFt. Must realtors only use living SqFt and never add in lanai's and garage in their SqFt. I always tell them if they want to show the property show the entire property. 94% of home buyers find their property online so show it to them online.

Question of the Day>Can you use a Z1 instead of a Pro2 to Offer Matterport? DanSmigrod 5 1 dayVTLV (2099): @Eladitems - “is perfect“ / “especially for backyards”. It’s not perfect when the thing overheats and dies or fighting battery drain constantly at 30%. It’s not perfect for delivering obj files for construction jobs. Portability and shooting speed are great. Upload cost blows for classic plans. The tool has allowed an enormous influx of brand new 360 professional photographers to jump into the game, shoot fast & study up...

Make a tighly closed and non-overlapping box of trim (all the "remove" arrows pointing to its inside) on the doorways to the stairs? I've attached an example. Try to zoom in and make the box as tight as possible so it won't mess up anything else...

This happens sporadically and effectively locks the camera, fails to record image and looses Wi-fi with Theta app. The camera may do 10 or more images before it happens, then hard reset it can go again faultlessly for 2 or more or repeat straight away. Camera on latest...

Question of the Day: Do you shoot a Zillow Video Walkthrough or upload vid? DanSmigrod 3 3 daysDouglasMeyers (1019): I agree with KF. Also the video walkthroughs no longer have an app to use and I never charged for their crappy video app but now I charge for every 360 Zillow between $25.00 to $ 50.00.
New Matterport password protection feature MDITS 7 3 daysbriangreul (418): I see the password feature being used to manage leads..... much the same way showing a property is used for agents to make contact with prospects. I also see it being used for clients who want a 3D scan, but don't want the whole World to be able to see it if they get the link. There are security issues associated with some clients like banks as one example. They can benefit from a 3D scan, but it's a deal killer if anyone else can access...

Question of the Day: Which Virtual Tour Platforms Offer a Dollhouse View? DanSmigrod 11 4 daysMeshImages (1002): @Kumar I am sure you can add a floorplan with krpano, but actually I have not seen an example yet. Krpano is powerpul but complicated and often involves coding skills.
Quick Tip to those who use WP3D Models and encountered the same issue ZakhZ 4 4 daysrpetersn (1998): Thanks @ZakhZ - Great suggestion here! There is also the option of adding a bit of custom code to your site (in the form of a 'single-model.php' template replacement) that doesn't require the use of a plugin, but this is a great/quick/straightforward solution. For a plugin-less way of redirecting the "standard" to the "skinned" view, do this: 1. Create a new file named 'single-model.php'. 2. Paste the...
Image retouching Ultimated1228 9 4 daysfotoguy (620): I always pull MP to pull all of my images. Man of them I can fix myself if it minor.

If I need color fixes, fire in fireplaces, images on the tv screen, etc, he does the job quickly, efficiently and at a good price.
"Should I buy a 4DKanKan Pro 3D Camera and use the 4DAGE Platform?" DanSmigrod 6 4 daysJuMP (1305): It is must be the newest version of 4D AGE's result. Because we can only get the latest link: https://www.4dkankan.com/showProMobile.html?m=21fRpsgLj from their website. It is totally different to the video they released now. And we can see lots of quality improvement from the video. Before 3D view is wall only, but now you can see the 3D furnitures inside the room. The new result is very similar to the result from Realsee...
Question of the Day: EXACT wording of your disclaimer on floor plans? DanSmigrod 2 4 daysftosolini (113): I have an agent who asks me every time to remove the measurements from the floor plan because time ago he noticed a pretty big discrepancy. So, now I deliver the floor plan with only the name of the rooms and the Matterport logo.
three story office building elevator technique-am I correct? adc1967 4 4 daysGladsmuir (196): Hi @adc1967, I would amend your list as follows: 1 Get the key to lock the elevator/lift doors open (you will see why later). 2 Scan floor 1 including elevator/lift. 3 Lock lift doors open while you are in the vicinity of elevator/lift. 4 Close doors and shoot additional scan further away than open scan you will be using near the doors. 5 Use stairs to scan up floor 2. 6 Scan floor 2 including elevator/lift. 7 Use stairs to scan up to floor 3. 8...
Where to get Floor plans for Matterport Tours shot with Ricoh Theta Z1? ahagert 12 4 daysVTLV (2099): I thought there was another name to use in front of the word floor plan that was commonly used 10+ years ago. This word was used to demonstrate the difference between an architectural versus for esthetic use. Maybe the word is “schematic”. Would anyone in UK notice a word use difference with floor plans being more commonly used there? I think there’s some keywords we need to home into or insert a certain disclaimer sentence.
