Question of the Day: What does it mean that Matterport now has a new CEO? DanSmigrod 8 8 hoursVTLV (1354): We get a new CEO announced in other news sources and nothing from the company in my email this week. Not feeling very hopeful about this one. What ever remarks he's made about the current tour inventory clearly support what the shareholders want back for returns. Returns they're not getting after 5 years of investing from Camera and hosting fees.
Shout-Outs for and Founder Colin Forte DanSmigrod 6 8 hoursHome3D (349): Me again, singing Colin’s praises. The average time my uploads have taken to process is 2-3 hours. I found one shot which needed a touch-up, that took 22 minutes to come back perfect. Now, I don’t know about you, but I usually upload in the evening after a shoot and hope they’ll be back the next day. So Colin is over-performing. Sorry Colin, but I’m still gonna get at least 6 hours sleep even if you finish the shots faster. I’m...

Matterport + All 360º Cameras = Exponential Growth (for all of us) DanSmigrod 9 4 daysMetroplex360 (8608): Take a look at all of the different platforms and what you can do with a Theta! Despite that, the quality of the depth data and image capture of the Pro-2 produces a better tour! At 134 Megapixels, delivering the clarity of the Pro-2 is something that no other platform and no other camera does like Matterport. And like Dan said --

Camera Issues - Recalibrate?? Warped Floor Plans KenBanks 1 5 daysKenBanks (10): My camera has been getting very finicky in the last few months. Constant alignment errors, low overlap errors, sensor error issues, and now it seems like the battery is dropping quicker than ever. Scanning even a tiny house takes a ton of time because scans have to be almost right on top of one-another. Even the floor plans I've gotten back from matterport are warped so somethings gotta be wrong.(I'll attach an example). We've had the camera...

Matterport Model review request Joelbcollins 4 6 daysHelloPado (88): is an amazing 3rd party overlay with some color connecting options. I use it on all of my tours Edit: it's a good looking tour. Props for perfect floral arrangement in the bathroom. Maybe i don't have the eye for it but saturating the other colors would only intensify the white... there's a lot of white.
Open Letter to the new CEO mori 7 6 daysGerhard (694): By the time they have woken up there will be a lot more new competition out there and it will be too late for Matterport, as they are still fast asleep at the wheel. This can be a multi billion dollar industry but gets run like a photo booth. Won be surprized when teh new iPhones launch you will be able to capture spaces. Then its goodbye Matterport. Why not put some of the MSP's on the board as non share holders and get real input. Nobody...

Php 7.2 and Wordpress 5.0 what to know GlennTremain 1 6 daysGlennTremain (1615): By the end of December your site has to use php 7.2. Php 5.6 and 7.0 will no longer have security updates supported. 85% of Wordpress uses will be caught off guard on Jan 1. Additionally Wordpress 5.0 is being released and many warn to backup your site before you upgrade to “Gutenberg” aka 5.0 because the editor is brand new and it is already known to conflict you some themes and plugins. Contact your hosting provider to make sure you...
"Urgent! My Matterport Camera failed!!!" (We will loan you our Matterport!) DanSmigrod 4 6 daysDanSmigrod (16876): @Metroplex360 Thank you. It’s really something Matterport should offer. Immense goodwill to enable scanning while repairing. For WGAN Basic, Standard and Premium Members that do not have a spare Matterport camera, this may be a good backup plan, just in case. Happy holidays, Dan
How to integrate WP3D Models with a WIX Website DanSmigrod 3 6 daysDanSmigrod (16876): @Metroplex360 While I would agree with you that any Matterport Service Provider starting out should build their site on WordPress so that they can take advantage of WP3D Models, for those that already have a WIX, SquareSpace or other site, they can still add WordPress just for WP3D Models. This way, the photographer does not have to redo their entire website to get the benefits of WP3D Models. Happy holidays, Dan
