Matterport Highlight Reel: what should I charge? Shawn_P 9 1 monthBrianNash (4): I have done many for free. Then realized some people don't value them or use them. Since Covid my business has jumped up big time, partly by working with other photographers that do drone and video, but don't have matterport - which their clients are asking for... so I profit share a bit of commission. Anyway, they charge for video, which many times if comparable to a highlight, apart from music.. which can also be done with a HL with a screen...

Thank you all for the ideas!

Ricoh Theta Z1 Android Matterport scan time Sophoto 2 2 monthsron0987 (1445): @Sophoto is the view on the screen similar to that of Ipad view.

How to fix scans showing up on wrong floor in my Matterport Tour? adc1967 14 2 monthsadc1967 (79): Hello, First of all I want to thank all the time people above spent assisting me. I read every bit of advice. I see that Castaway nailed it with the stair scans. Plus, the earlier advice of carrying heavy duty door jams is a great idea. The thing I learned is to have the doors to stairwells open throughout. Plus, do a few more scans than normal (I can always hide). Anyway, my scan is in the stitching pipeline (I called MP) and it could be...

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.

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.
