Case Study: How Specialty Retailers are using Matterport Across America DanSmigrod 3 29 days3dshowcaseuk (1097): 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!
Question of the Day: Should Matterport disable viewing the tripod area? DanSmigrod 2 29 dayscraigsauer (1045): Matterport should try to use the 3D mesh to fill in the unphotographed nadir and zenith. It could still be blurred or otherwise filtered to show that it isn't photographically accurate.

Matterport to Offer Pricing Options for Floor Plans in 48, 24, 12 & 6 Hours DanSmigrod 2 30 daysGETMYVR (577): My local MLS does not accept any of the Matterport provided floor plan digital media outputs, so I must convert the PNG to jpeg. I'm so confused why Matterport doesn't provide a JPEG of the floor plan since it is the most universally recognized digital image format on the planet.

Black start screen in Matterport model tinsoldier 1 30 daystinsoldier (10): I'm embedding a matterport tour with the provided iframe link, and the start screen with the play button just has a black background rather than an image from the tour behind it. I'm also noticing I'm not getting the "Tour...presented by" coming up after play as it does if I just accessed it via the matterport link. Any ideas why is this happening? Using Chrome and have the tour set to Branded. Thanks for the advice

Cloning Matterport spaces schaferu 7 1 monthlilnitsch (1961): Unfortunately, even if a Matterport support staff were to duplicate the model all of the edits (mattertags, highlight reals, etc) would have to be re-done as it creates an entirely new URL Even back in the day when we had the Amazing Dee still at Matterport to merge models together she recommended not making any edits until after she had merged the 2 spaces together
What does Matterport Capture Services charge clients versus paid to Pros? DanSmigrod 3 1 monthGerhard (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.

Do you charge less for shooting Matterport with a Ricoh Theta Z1 than Pro2? DanSmigrod 10 1 monthVTLV (2211): I can wrap my head around charging less For another use. If you have a classic plan, you’re putting up to $39 for upload using dual fisheye lens. Your monthly plans still need to help with costs to fund your tour slot plus other slots not currently being used. You use a pro 1 or 2, you’re out a few hours of shooting time. It’s right there with charge more for pro2 vs pro1 price comparison a couple years ago. Fund the plan, compete with...

Tips for Matterport Photographers Shooting Asteroom Virtual Tours DanSmigrod 14 1 monthEricTsai (131): 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 1 monthMattSCrowder (103): They are selling the camera, not the service. Example 1. "Architects, engineers, and construction professionals are always on the hunt for new tools... Introducing the Matterport Pro 2 Camera..." Example 2. "Here's how it works - 1. Scan YOUR job site..." Example 3. "The Pro 2 saves you both time and money" It doesn't take an English professor to catch that they are speaking directly to AEC professionals and...

Question of the Day: Insta360 ONE R versus Ricoh Theta Z1 for Matterport? DanSmigrod 1 1 monthDanSmigrod (23371): Hi All, The WGAN Forum Question of the Day for Thursday, 10 September 2020) is: Insta360 ONE R versus Ricoh Theta Z1 for Matterport? If you have shot a Matterport Tour with an Insta360 One R (during public beta), can you share a tour with us? A plus would be to share the same space shot with a Ricoh Theta Z1. Matterport will officially support the Insta360 ONE R starting in October 2020. Details in this WGAN Forum...
Frustration with Matterport subscription levels GWatsonImages 2 1 monthQueen_City_3D (2632): 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...

Matterport Scan of one house with three floors and no stairs to connect Ramojakubovic 10 1 monthron0987 (1507): The other thing to consider if like @lilnitsch says if you get the right time do the entire stairs on all three floors so there is no major lighting difference. But remember to open the doors on each level. You will find the end product color balance is better. Just a suggestion.
Question of the Day: Are you a Matterport Artist or Business Person? DanSmigrod 5 1 monthPickChuck (238): Here is an older post that brings home what a lot of us struggle with right now. Perfection vs Good solid sellable images. Right now they're ongoing debates on Matterport vs Asteroom and Matterport vs Theta Z1. Both softwares are amazing and will do all we need. Yes, both could have...insert you desire. The question is: Are either one keeping you from succeeding? No question quality is better from Matterport than Z1. Full Frame and hand...
How Asteroom got me to switch from Matterport. jwaltphotography 16 1 monthjwaltphotography (52): I have not experienced this. We have shot more than 2 dozen properties since we recently implemented this. Our realtors are much happier with the time savings since I can shoot any house in 15 minutes or less. I have yet to hear a buyer state that "This tour wasn't immersive enough". IN fact, most buyers are layman in terms of cameras and cannot tell the difference. A matterport has consistent misalignment issues in post and it often...

Question of the Day: Matterport's latest marketing videos - Your thoughts? DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsMeshImages (1065): I don't like both of them, because they are not professional. In the first video the man is wearing a Google Daydream headset which is not supported anymore (since a year). And the storytelling makes no sense to me either. Why are sellers and buyers the same persons? Or is she only talking to the sellers and they change their clothing to a more casual style when the tour is ready? And why don't they mention important features like password...
Asteroom vs Matterport lilnitsch 35 2 monthsPickChuck (238): Maybe so. Pretty sure my wife would declare them as music or photo related and say pay for them with that money.

I thought to myself, not sure she knows at what level the 3d printers we are looking at. Good thing the books are kept at his place:). Here's our latest guitar invention. It's an electric...

Matterport Pro? Asteroom solves the challenge of shooting 200,000+ SQ FT DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsjericreson (84): I just shot a 20,000 sf project. It included 54 panos - 13 of which were exterior panos. The # of panos will vary by project - for example, large open spaces will require fewer panos than individual offices with connecting halls, and complex layouts. If you are shooting with a relatively low resolution camera, you will need substantially more images to capture a decent level of zoom in detail, especially of larger rooms. A Theta Z1 would...
