Question of the Day>Can you use a Z1 instead of a Pro2 to Offer Matterport? DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsVTLV (2145): @Eladitems - “is perfect“ / “especially for backyards”. It’s not perfect when the thing overheats and dies or fighting battery drain constantly at 30%. It’s not perfect for delivering obj files for construction jobs. Portability and shooting speed are great. Upload cost blows for classic plans. The tool has allowed an enormous influx of brand new 360 professional photographers to jump into the game, shoot fast & study up...

Feedback from a client: How to help eliminate these Matterport challenges? Shawn_P 38 2 monthsExpertise (435): I'd email the guy: "Matterport and 3D tech in general is new technology. It is not perfect, yet. Someday it will be. Until then we have to live with minor glitches".
New Matterport password protection feature MDITS 7 2 monthsbriangreul (446): I see the password feature being used to manage leads..... much the same way showing a property is used for agents to make contact with prospects. I also see it being used for clients who want a 3D scan, but don't want the whole World to be able to see it if they get the link. There are security issues associated with some clients like banks as one example. They can benefit from a 3D scan, but it's a deal killer if anyone else can access...
Where to get Floor plans for Matterport Tours shot with Ricoh Theta Z1? ahagert 12 2 monthsVTLV (2145): I thought there was another name to use in front of the word floor plan that was commonly used 10+ years ago. This word was used to demonstrate the difference between an architectural versus for esthetic use. Maybe the word is “schematic”. Would anyone in UK notice a word use difference with floor plans being more commonly used there? I think there’s some keywords we need to home into or insert a certain disclaimer sentence.

Question of the Day: Your Matterport special offer for first time clients? DanSmigrod 5 2 monthstoddwaddington (197): Yeah, the problem with publishing any deals, is that the same square footage I do for a realtor will generally pay half of what a "Matterport provider" will pay. Commercial space, etc.
Matterport Scan with Dynamic Human Interactivity AhmedAttia 9 2 monthsAhmedAttia (137): @ironwills thanks a lot for sharing this, I was just telling Dan that it would be perfect if we could emerge between the Matterport and 3D Vista platform. I will talk with 3D Vista to see how it can goes.

Client Wants Matterport - Advice Needed GeorgeH 5 2 monthsDanSmigrod (22910): @GeorgeH Welcome to the WGAN Forum and thank you for your insightful post. Since you have the client's trust - and your competitor has a Matterport Pro2 3D Camera - is there a way for you and your competitor to collaborate so that you and your client are happy (instead of reshooting with the Insta360 One X?) Using 3rd Party Matterport overlay too - MP/Embed - you can: ✓ adjust the brightness, saturation, contrast, hue, white balance...

Question of the Day: Should Matterport Enable Editing/Replacing 360 Photos? DanSmigrod 5 2 months3DVirtuallyThere (88): I agree being able to adjust the photos/panos would be next level. I don't understand why Z1 imagery looks worse inside Matterport and high quality on its own.
My first Matterport 3D Tour: Feedback Please (used Z1 and V to compare) FabioLuna 7 2 monthsFabioLuna (7): thanks everyone for the feedback. I had the cameras at about 5 1/2 ft,I will definitely try using different heights depending on how tall the total space is. @castaway I have no idea how that mesh got created, I don't remember deleting any scan points and I didn't touch any of the windows. I was going to use the Z1 first and take advantage of the light, but the battery had drained because I forgot to turn off the camera after charging(...

May I get your help with Matterport scanning of stairs? GaryB75 3 2 monthsGaryB75 (7): @ron0987 thank you for the tip, Ive never thought to do that. I’ll create the new floor part way up the stairs case to see how it goes - here is the space link clickable text Hopefully it works, and if so you will see that when looking at the floor plan view on floor one, midway down, you will notice there is a blacked out section (because I didn’t scan the under-stair storage cupboard...
CoreLogic's HomeVisit Portal Includes Matterport for 850,000 RE Agents DanSmigrod 5 2 monthsbriangreul (446): It's possible they could be using DroneBase, but I have not heard any chatter there. Regardless of who they are using there are still all sorts of airspace complications in major markets. It's possible to fly near most of them, but it takes a few days to get authorization and it takes time. Both of which are the enemy of high volume low paying work. That still leaves out the DSLR space.

Looking for an Aerial 360 platform to tie Matterport together.. tomjones2787 5 2 monthsWingman (1425): 3DVista and Pano2vr will let you build it the way you want. You can just create a single panorama tour in either of them and it will be your aerial 360. Then you can create a hotspot on a ground and link a Matterport tour to it.

How do you get back to the Matterport dollhouse view form a 360 View? Shawn_P 4 2 monthspixelray (578): Are you talking about the 360s that you place on the map within the capture app? I think how MP does these 360s is archaic. Where they put the icons correcting them and not being able to put the icons where you want them in workshop is so frustrating.
