MLS Competing With MSPs by Offering Two Free Months Matterport Starter Plan DanSmigrod 4 29 daysHarlanHambright (1714): All technology is going to evolve. Moore’s law. Get what you can while you can, differentiate yourself, don’t get sore at tech developments. Tech has always brought capabilities to dumber people. When Pagemaker came out graphic designers thought they were doomed. Technology just allows uneducated people to create bad stuff more efficiently. And you as a msp have to keep moving too. You don’t want to become a barrel stave maker. Keep...

How do you export full size (12866 x 6433) 360 images from Matterport Pro2? wolfind 10 1 monthWingman (1354): There can be an easy walk around to avoid hosting your tours with Matterport. It won't give you full resolution 360s, only 32MP ones and you won't be able to do it for private properties. However for anything else, you can do scans with Matterport, then publish your tour to GSV, grab it from there with Pano2VR Pro(I am sure 3DVista can do it too) and then you have a completely ready tour made up to real scale and with every 360 linked to build...
Help with quality/resolution of furniture in Matterport Dollhouse View? nehuen 5 1 monthDanSmigrod (22496): @nehuen (All Good.) To get the best possible images in a Matterport 3D Tour, use a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera. To get the best possible mesh in a Matterport 3D Tour, use a Leica BLK360 camera/scanner. Unfortunately, while the mesh can be "cleaned-up" (for example, to create a video), it's not possible to upload the "cleaned-up" mess view to Matterport. Best, Dan P.S. Time for a walk. I likely will be slow to reply, if...

Capture 3D mesh (like LiDAR point cloud) with imagery (like Matterport) oshioyi 9 1 monthEaglePrecision (38): You should look for someone who is a 3D model service provider (Reality Capture or Documentation Specialist) and specializes in either Pix4D or Agisoft Metashape software. Both vendors offer 3D model photogrammetry software that can stitch a very accurate model from carefully taken photographs. Pix4D just came out with Pix4D Catch which makes use of the iPad Pro Lidar capability to get accurate depth information. Metashape will take photo...

You can press it and it shows how much battery life is left without having to turn on the power button... I cant recall if I remember correctly, pressing that button, does it light up? I used to think it didnt. But now I see that button light up in orange when I press it. Is it just me? :P
Matterport Capture Services Program: ongoing hosting costs? HomePlanNZ 1 1 monthHomePlanNZ (207): Does anyone out there know what Matterport is charging customers of its new Scanning Services for ongoing hosting of spaces? I'm assuming they are signing them up to enterprise 'active' licensing arrangements at a discounted rate. But I'm interested to know how much of a discount compared to what MSPs and non-scanning services clients have access to, and if they are allowing any to work under the much cheaper classic licensing...

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...

Do you have Printed Handouts Ideas for Matterport Scanning? 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. Some of them like the hosted tour if they do private events and such, Some just want me to publish to Streetview and call it a day. Showrooms are also good. I just got a signed contract to build a tour for an outdoor furniture...

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,...
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...

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.
