Suggestions for filming a camp (indoor + outdoor) Virtour 6 1 monthEaglePrecision (116): Why wouldn't you be able to capture the entire campus in one aerial model? Pix4D, DroneDeploy and MapsMadeEasy all have capture apps that enable planning and executing large area flight plans with multiple individual flights (and battery changes) and their processing software, whether desktop (Pix4D) or cloud (Pix4D, MapsMadeEasy, DroneDeploy), can handle very large datasets.

Matterport Blog: You Don’t Have to Wait for iPhone 12 to Capture in 3D. DanSmigrod 6 1 monthMeshImages (1089): I see Matterport getting stuck in the middle. If I want superfast and very precise 3D meshing of small spaces and objects I will probably be using apps like polycam or canvas for iPad pro and soon for iPhone 12 pro.

Matterport Space of a hotel: 1,000+ Scans of 100,000 SQ FT HarlanHambright 5 1 monthExpertise (535): Very cool, Harlen. Two questions for you: 1- how many days and man hours would you estimate this took? 2- how did you get this job? Did you pitch them? Did they call you? Are you acquainted with mgmt? And a question for MSPs who have done these types of spaces: Is this something that you think owners/management are now ready to consider?
MSP? What would you differently if you were launching your MSP biz today? DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsron0987 (1536): After debating for several weeks I would have done like @3SixtyNow said, which is not believe the hype and gone with Iguide. I think that would have been over all better. I would have also jumped on with GeoCV when they started up as a secondary system.

Nice virtual platform for Scanning Exterior Locations with a Theta Z1? SpencerLasky 9 2 monthsHome3D (2420): Each MP model should launch to display in a 'lightbox' style overlay window, dimming the background tour. Near the upper right should appear an "X" to close the MP model back to the underlying 360° tour. Note: These have been designed principally for use on desktop and tablets used in Landscape mode. Some of them work on phones in portrait mode, but this use has not been tweaked fully.

Case Study: How Specialty Retailers are using Matterport Across America DanSmigrod 3 2 months3dshowcaseuk (1130): It’s a great idea but unfortunately most of the retailers in this country have already done the remodel of their shops, tested it, changed it and perfected it, so imho it’s a non-starter for us. May be different in other countries. Online shopping experience for showrooms etc is a target we are looking at, as we are now being put back into a second albeit milder form of lockdown. I’ll share if we are fruitful in our labours!
Wild Night - insurance work maybe? homefinders3d 8 2 monthsGETMYVR (620): I did a fire damage house.

I think we're at the perfect place at the perfect time.
Do you spend an hour editing the tripod out of the 360 panos for your tour? DanSmigrod 7 2 monthsGETMYVR (620): I think nadir view should be disabled because nobody looks at it like others have mentioned. Totally irrelevant to the composition of the space.

What does Matterport Capture Services charge clients versus paid to Pros? DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsGerhard (1138): @MeshImages I am still cheaper than MSP program , and I am pushing that out to clients now. So two can play this game. Matterport is driving their prices down the drain, so its the race to the bottom now. So I don't know what ingenues new thing they have up their sleeves to make revenue, bet you their investors are also wondering.

Tips for Matterport Photographers Shooting Asteroom Virtual Tours DanSmigrod 14 3 monthsEricTsai (137): Hi @GWastonImages Thanks for the note and happpy to hear that you like the pay per tour option, which now includes the 2D floor plan with dimensions! To answer your question - Asteroom does not give you the "walk through" feel that Matterport gives you. And you are right - in residential real estate the rooms are small enough that the walk through feel isn't as critical. Unlike Matterport that tries to tap into every...
Matterport is stepping on MSPs again, trying to sell direct to our clients MattSCrowder 3 3 monthsMattSCrowder (103): They are selling the camera, not the service. Example 1.

Frustration with Matterport subscription levels GWatsonImages 2 3 monthsQueen_City_3D (2672): Your frustrations are valid. I find Matterport unwittingly punishes success with the arbitrary space limits. You’d think they’d want to encourage their customers to keep their models “live”, as the more models there are the more the general public would learn about Matterport and want to hire MSPs or even buy a camera themselves and have their own subscriptions which would make Matterport more money. My best advice is to try to...
