WGAN-TV: Enables Asteroom to Seamlessly Publish to Its Platform DanSmigrod 10 7 hourslilnitsch (2596): I believe any of these platforms integration with or other outlets is hugely important. That said unless this is an agent shooting their own properties We as photographers will need to make sure these extra steps are being taken so, that the tours are properly being displayed ~ As, part of my process this is something I already do for my agents mainly for Zillow & Matterport but, now with some of these new tour platforms that...

Tall Tripod for BLK360 AnjumDesign 9 15 daysJuMP (1346): @Home3D Your showcase is a great example of BLK360 + Pro2 work. And it is a brilliant photo that you show the equipments with your MSP family. I thought with the 6 meter high tripod maybe we can use Pro2 not BLK360 for the roof. But the RMB9999.00 tripod is too expensive, we don't have chance to test is it possible or not. BTW BLK360 is too expensive for us to have it also. One question about the three wheels base that you used under...

Question of the Day: Are you a Matterport Artist or Business Person? DanSmigrod 7 20 daysHome3D (2690): I got my first camera at age 12 and have owned many since. So I’m an artist first, trying to maintain a good business approach to work. When I’m working for an agent/client who is appreciative, who recognizes my level of commitment to service, I often go above and beyond. For example, this month I had several small jobs booked for HDR photos only, but delivered a MP tour as well as an end-of-year thank you. If I’m on a job that pays...

Didn't realize how badly Matterport treats us til I started writing Expertise 3 1 monthron0987 (1676): I do bash Matterport on regular bases, in some cases it’s out of pure frustration. I use lots of technology and MP is the only company that does very little to work collaboratively with its user. When the company I worked for bought a Faro laser scanner, there was tons of support. They had seminars, conferences, I met software developers, engineers for Faro and other user. It felt like it was a collaborative effort to make the product better....
Matterport Cloud Pricing News for Matterport Classic Pricing Customers DanSmigrod 20 1 monthExpertise (625): Self hosting is not a solution to this problem. At all. How many hours would we have to spend a month as support staff for agents trying to figure out how to set up their accounts? They would even call me when they lose their password.
Question of the Day>How does the ending of transfers to Classic affect you? DanSmigrod 13 1 monthWingman (1627): There is one workaround which I have not been aware. It is just working with partners from different states from mine has made me realise that you can actually upload all scans to somebody's account for processing. They make you a collaborator, you scan on your ipad but upload to the account where you are a collaborator. Makes it much easier than dealing with traders plus you only need to scan and trim and the rest is up to the account holder...

Transcript: Matterport Current Cloud Pricing Plans versus Classic Plan DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsDanSmigrod (24328): Hi All, In Matterport ShopTalk #9 Webinar (above), there is no mention of "Transfergate" ... Instead, the Matterport Classic Pricing is discussed starting at 23:29 and ending at 33:00, AND during the Q&A. Interesting how much time was spent trying to explain how/why Matterport new pricing is a much better deal that Matterport Classic pricing. Worth noting at 51:01, Matterport Director of Product Marketing Volkie Yelkovan says in...
Video: 6 Reasons Real Estate Agents Switch Real Estate Photographers DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsrko1 (171): A big one is a realtor owes a photographer money, will not pay, so they to call a different photographer rather than pay what they owe.

No transfer is allowed anymore from new plans to old classic ones Wingman 4 2 monthsbriangreul (593): It's also worth mentioning that when they rolled out the new pricing it had been calculated to provide a certain amount of ongoing revenue. Any software company needs to monetize it's product to stay in businss. The fantasy land of seed money to burn in a pit just doesn't work and investors tire of it quickly. Matterport has gone through a chunk of cash without producing sizeable profits. If they were producing sizeable profits they wouldn't...
Video: Matterport for Residential Real Estate DanSmigrod 10 2 monthsWingman (1627): The subtitles were the hardest thing to do.

Matterport & Project Habitat leeverdon 5 2 monthsbriangreul (593): I got the email this morning and asked them: 1) Which space they wanted access to... 2) When they would let me be an MSP or MSS..... From what I read in the email I envisioned Roomba meets Matterport. It just wanders around and scans on it's own. Maybe they FedEx it to customers and screw all the photographers.
Here comes 2021 - What's a "successful MSP" in terms of scanning volume? dave3d 5 2 monthsHome3D (2690): Permit me to suggest that "successful" is anyone who is earning a living, supporting a family, and enjoying the work they do. I expect even Jeff Bevos ponders 'How can I earn more' but we in America place too much emphasis purely on monetary gain. Is your family healthy and happy? Are your kids on track to become smarter than us one day? Are we making choices based not only on dollars but what kind of planet we will leave to our...

Is a new Matterport camera coming in 2021? dave3d 12 2 monthsbriangreul (593): @DanSmigrod I think the camera is a price point product, not a margin product. I think they picked a price that people can stomach. The challenge is all the negative noise being created by the broker out of California coupled with the stark reality about not letting anyone new into MSS/MSP. The argument about not enough volume only holds a little water as most of the established MSP's are subbing the work out to photographers. In effect...
