Missalignment on doorways and metal shine surfaces Pedrotex69 1 1 monthPedrotex69 (36): Hi all, I have just bought a Matterport Pro2 camera and I did my first test. I noticed a few things that I have not seen before when I used my Insta 360 One X camera, and would like your opinion if this is normal. First problem is when I do a 3D scan from beneath the doors entrances, the lines are missaligned. If this is normal to happen, then I suppose the solutions is not doing it under the doors, but only after or before the doors...
How to do a Matterport scan of a church? Publish to GSV? Atriux 7 1 monthbriangreul (421): I would also scan the space progressively as opposed to linearly if I did it again. The camera had alignment challenges with the pews. So just imagine a video game where you "discover" the map. The camera does the same thing. It seems like alignment challenges come in when you scan the perimeter and come back to fill in the details on large spaces. :)
Global Real Estate Brands Adopt Matterport Capture Services DanSmigrod 2 1 monthbriangreul (421): Too bad Matterport won't let anyone sign up to be a Service Provider or Capture Technician. Both are currently gated. If you ask all you get is a "we're really busy right now and not taking any new partners." The vetted part is nonsense. They assign it to the partners in the program who then find people to run the jobs for them. I will agree they are doing lots of volume... but it's very poorly scoped and expectation management is...

MattSCrowder 6 1 monthMattSCrowder (64): @johnwheatley The hospitality industry is a good industry for this - Though most of them are broke right now so I've been doing some barter. I've got about $2000 in gift cards so far from 4 upscale restaurants.

Ricoh Theta Z1 used for Matterport Capture: Going Outside Help Please Andy17 7 1 monthCharlesHH (276): I've been using the new 4.02 Capture with Cortex enabled. So I had all my 360 MP scans on the terrace with regular scanning but black holes on the floor plan. Then I positioned the camera where it would cover the black areas. Shot a 360. Selected the image (bottom right)and then at top - Place on Map. This placed it in top left corner of floor plan. Touch the circular 360 marker and you get 4 choices. Bottom one is Convert to 3D. Touch that,...
That's my photo! A life lesson in copyrights. immersivespaces 47 1 monthChangesin3d (121): Did some searching here, on this topic, and found some advise Mr. Buckley from Matterport gave about going to and attorney to discuss business opportunities. One of the component parts of the lawsuit. How ironic it would be if the advise he gave started this class action. Here is the link. There maybe some other jewels of knowledge in his comments also when you really think about it....
Asteroom versus Matterport DanSmigrod 10 1 monthEricTsai (71): @bryanhscott - thanks for your feedback. The artifact that you were describing was probably the imaging "ghosting" that was resulted from the user using the mobile phones plus the rotator setup. Of course, Asteroom also supports all the 360 cameras out there. When shooting with Z1 or any of the 360 cameras, there will be no "ghosting" of the images
Highlights from the MSP Class Action Lawsuit Against Matterport DanSmigrod 3 1 monthChangesin3d (121): Great Point! I am wondering what it was like for Board of Directors to get served? Many appear to be from investment firms, I wonder if they had their clients money in play and if there were any other complaints on these issues. I bet discussion in forums about "promised leads" also factor in showing that Matterport knew of this issue and did nothing. I bet some Attorneys have full email boxes tomorrow morning. Maybe there...

At all relevant times, [Matterport] failed to disclose that they were actually setting up their own scanning network where they set the price, and actually become a direct competitor for scanning business against the camera purchaser and/or MSPs. Specifically, after an MSP built...

How Long for a 2,000 SQ FT (ish) home with Ricoh Theta Z1 on Matterport? jimfelder 4 1 monthJonJ (1649): If the property is staged and ready to go, I would say 10-15 minutes for every 1000 sqft. Allocate additional time for setup (initial walk-through, adjusting items/blinds and turning on lights) and take down if that is something you are responsible for. The above estimate assumes that there are no distractions and does include time for additional 360 views.

Large scale facility and floorplan Wonderdawg 6 1 monthGerhard (1135): @briangreul I have scanned 4 very large schools. The app crashed when I went over 500 scans. Was a total nightmare. But the only thing that saved me was Super DEE. She stitched all the models for me some had uptown 30 separate models that had to get stitched. Ad she did a stellar job in a record time. So can Matterport still stitch models or are they too busy working on the iPhone app ??? That is also rubbish by the way. I am not pushing...
How to game the new Matterport Pricing DanSmigrod 18 1 monthJonPaul (10): I see MP going out of business. They cant control the technology of the camera competition and they can't control the competition of people making stitching software to put it all together. Their attempt at controlling the content is what will drive people away from them.
Looking for nice designs with Matterport embedded webpages SpencerLasky 4 1 montheverly (1): @SpencerLasky I don't know if I have an example but it's an interesting question and I think that this would be the solution (setting an iframe as a page background using CSS): https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13363092/vimeo-iframe-as-background Since the embed code for a Matterport walkthrough is an iFrame, it should be relatively straightforward to get it onto a page as a background element.
