Spinning Product upload into Mattertag Jonasspinning 12 5 daysJonasspinning (7): Hey everybody, I contacted the creator of the space and they didn't change anything and where surprised by the request :D . So I called the software company ORBITVU directly and voilá that was the answer. Apparently the Orbitvu viewer(html5 player) is accepted by Matterport and its very easy to embed! Hope this finds anybody well, who is looking for a way to implement 360° spinning models into their space. ...

Unable to join the network... MP and Theta Z1 sdubose99 2 2 monthsWingman (2111): I sold a Z1 few months ago but I remember there is an Access Point mode in the camera settings. If you turn it on through theta app, set up SSID name and a password the camera will act as a wireless router. Then you can connect directly to the camera from a tablet/phone without using any other wireless network. Here is a video about doing it in Theta V but since the app is the same it will work for a Z1...
iGuide Stitching / Alignment versus Matterport dansoto 3 2 monthsdansoto (23): @ProGuideMedia Thanks for the response. As for aligning, what do you mean that iGuide doesn't have to align? Is this a manual process we have to do on our own instead of letting the app do it (like MP's Capture)? As for WOW factor, I get it. We have both MP2 Pro cameras and Z1s and there's no comparison, however, our primary use doesn't really benefit from the quality of the MP2 and Z1's are our goto camera and perfect for us.
Pricing on scanning restaurant? AerialWayz 7 2 monthsAerialWayz (72): Hi @DanSmigrod, Many thanks for the links. Excellent info for me to go on. It was very helpful as the client is looking to pay a minimum of 3 years of hosting for about 7 different outlets. I am adding the GSV for the client. Thanks, John.
New way of attaching Matterport 360 views to a Matterport 3D tour Wingman 11 2 monthsWingman (2111): They may be can do it but I would not rely on them. The last time I asked the support to duplicate one tour three times I had to wait 3 weeks for it. And that was for my friend who was patient. I cannot imagine telling it to my clients that it may take weeks. Considering we are dealing with hi tech anyone can imagine they have either GUI for it or at least can do it manually in a few seconds/minutes but they does not seem to care helping fast...
Matterport scan: go back next day to add two rooms with a Ricoh Theta Z1? AerialWayz 12 2 monthsron0987 (1790): @AerialWayz if the 3d view was in the correct location you can go back to the capture app and pull up the 3d view and there are several tabs one is convert view to 3D scan. It shows as being in beta version but I think it is for this very reason. I just checked my last two scans on my IPad and the feature is still available. Then you just have to reproces the model.
Matterport Pricing to Agents - it's craziness for sure! tmroberts 8 2 monthslilnitsch (2973): When I has the "In-house" guy I still would hit the sales meetings to be ever-present and top of mind for the agents

Future prospects of Matterport? Should I buy Matterport Pre-IPO Shares? Silvadro 23 4 monthsrko1 (265): bold text We are always looking, are we happy with Matterport? Depends on which day it is. We are an MSP, and on the capture team. We have been shooting with Matterport for 5 years. Technology is like grabbing a handful of sand, what you have in your hand at this minute won't be there in the next, but a new handful is always available. Do we make a living strictly on Matterport? Yes and no, it is currently a substantial part of what we do. We...

DanSmigrod 5 5 monthssandhun (112): An estate agent I have a good relationship with said the following: "property sells by a physical inspection, and sometimes less is more, as why view if they have seen everything already?" Having said that, he was impressed by the technology. Also, the following comment from the Redfin post makes a lot of sense. "Homebuyers who are searching for a home out of town and don't have the time or ability to view the home in...

Help me clear up the use of the trim tool in Matterport tubazoltan 20 5 monthsron0987 (1790): This is what I was talking about the limitations of the MP trim line. I wish they would make trim work like a typical CAD program. If it would work like that then your problem be resolved.

MP stitching together TWO Tours to make ONE. BlueImmersiveMedia 3 6 monthsNoddy (178): @BlueImmersiveMedia, yes it can be done by sending the links in an e-mail to, There should be at least one common area / common scan point or points, and you can describe to them how it should be joined. First they will take a look and determine if it's do-able, then they will stitch the 2 parts into 1 model. This may take weeks. When it is done you will have a single scan added to your account, with a new link, and the...

Is it standard within the industry to charge clients a monthly hosting fee? peanutismint 3 6 monthspeanutismint (25): Thanks for the advice but I’m not asking whether or not to charge hosting, but rather how much to charge/whether to make it different for one-off customers VS recurring listings such as in real estate?
Mattertag question re: embedded video not showing up uniformly picture_this 6 7 monthscastaway (77): Others will feel differently and not want to spend the time on any extra scans, and that's fine, but I don't bother with regular height scans in a mirrored bathroom, or any tricky mirrored area. Not at first. At first I'd lower the tripod all the way, all the way down as far as it will go and, overlapping several full height scans with low, lowest scans on the way into the funhouse of mirrors? all around the bathroom, in the shower/tub,...
Matterport Labs - Has anyone plays with this feature on their tour? VTLV 8 7 monthswishing_well (71): The sentiment is great nice to play with but neither will be useful for quite some time. I'd be interested to hear how others envision using this? I can imagine the painter would become immediately useful to cover up bad 'patches' in the model like a dirty floor or wall. The fly-through is more ominous since it's the 3D model that you fly through it looks very isometric and jaggy. I wonder if they plan on processing the results of your...
Jeopardy Question references Matterport Tour by Capture Capture 2 7 monthsDanSmigrod (25642): @Capture Alex, for $400. Which Digital Twin platform was featured on Jeopardy this week? (Wednesday, 11 November 2020) What is Matterport? Dan P.S. Congrats to the CAPTURE team in Greater New England!
First tour with MP2. How do I mark the doors and window? And, ... rodrigocastillo 3 7 monthsDanSmigrod (25642): Grab from tour above @rodrigocastillo 1. Do mark the exterior windows. It will make the dollhouse look nicer. 2. Do use the trim tool. It will make the "spray" of data go away (and make the dollhouse look nicer. Matterport does not charge to reprocess a space. It does charge based on the number of models that...
Does anybody here charge for Matterport by the room, rather than footage? peanutismint 18 7 monthsGETMYVR (784): I spent 20 years as a digital marketing director for automotive dealerships, and a constant gripe for salespeople was that it seemed like car dealerships were always in a race to the bottom for pricing in their advertising. The reality is you can have an "offer" and then you can have standard pricing. And everybody came in on this special low price ads, but they wanted a vehicle different from the ad car. That's when you had to go...
Should I be paying to host my clients spaces or set up an account for them? peanutismint 7 7 monthspeanutismint (25): Interesting, I didn't know buying legacy accounts was a thing. Is it legal/against Matterport ToS? Where would I look to buy such an account? Yeah I guess your math works out on that, and if I need to upgrade I can cross that bridge when I come to it. Other VT providers definitely are more advanced, and some do the stitching just like Matterport, but if MP is the industry standard then I might have to bite the bullet on this one.
Matterport & Ricoh Theta Z1 work well together? jpierce360 11 8 monthsHome3D (3066): @jpierce360 - no, completely different, Z1 vs a Pro 1/2. The Pro cameras us IR to actually gather precise measurements on every physical surface within its range of about 10-12 feet. The Z1 captures no depth data at all. Cortex takes the Z1's 360° photo and uses AI to 'guess' (nothing more than guess) where in space the objects it photographs actually are. It then creates 3D mesh based on these guesses. If you're shooting an unfurnished...

Matterport with Oculus Go tmroberts 3 8 monthstmroberts (107): @DanSmigrod - thank you for the video - it sure answered my question. Seems the instant transition blue spheres are dated and now the use of the controller is required. There are sure benefits of the experience with and without the use of the controller. We have 2 Oculus Go headsets we use for demo's so as long as they work...they will work ;) I encourage all agents to at least experiment with VR whether it be something as simple as a BNext...

What is the limit of users to enter a Matterport tour at the same time? AlanD 8 8 monthsWingman (2111): There is no limit per tour for Matterport. It does not operate that way. When viewers are inside some tour all that a Matterport server does is sending them a bunch of images as tiles to represent each viewer field of view. And these requests can come to the Matterport server simultaneously from 1000s of unrelated Matterport tours. No need to make any duplicates in order to make it faster-it won't change anything. Viewers from each duplicate ...

Joining Multiple Buildings with Asteroom jwaltphotography 2 9 monthstoddwaddington (517): This is great, @jwaltphotography. I’m wondering what separates this tour from any other VR tour (ie, Kuula, etc.). Without the “dollhouse” presence it could be any number of tour providers. But, you make a good point which can’t be over stated. Whether it’s Asteroom, Kuula, Hippos for 360 (joke), one doesn’t need 20 scans to capture a few rooms. Tours can be crafted with far fewer images. That said, take a look at this...
Matterport is stepping on MSPs again, trying to sell direct to our clients MattSCrowder 3 9 monthsMattSCrowder (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...
Frustration with Matterport subscription levels GWatsonImages 2 9 monthsQueen_City_3D (2773): 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...

Pretty sure my wife would declare them as music or photo related and say pay for them with that money. LOL Just a funny, I had said my guitar partner and I were lookin at a 3D printer. For Christmas she gave me a $250 off coupon from staples. 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:).

Matterport: Can you scan upper level first? Before lower ones . skyload300 3 11 monthsNoddy (178): @Skyload, yes you can. At the stairs going down to floor below, take one scan on the actual stairs just near the top step, then add/ name a new floor "Basement" etc, then move that scan to the lower floor and resume scanning down the stairs and on the lower floor. Just remember though, if there are any windows as you travel down the stairs, they need to be marked on that lower floor, not the floor above. Good luck!

Who Could Be a Target of an ADA Compliant Lawsuit? BarnesCreative 11 11 monthsBarnesCreative (89): @glenntremain I clarify several times that we are talking about virtual tours specifically. I also call out during the series that if a website isn’t compliant then the virtual tour status is irrelevant because the site would fail from the get go.
Help with quality/resolution of furniture in Matterport Dollhouse View? nehuen 5 11 monthsDanSmigrod (25642): @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 11 monthsEaglePrecision (161): 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...
Matterport: Garage Scanning Inquiry WALES 12 11 monthsCharlesHH (424): Glad it worked. I like Captur3d floor plans. If they can see boundaries from Google Earth or if you send them a Google screengrab with borders marked, they do a great site plan too.

Asteroom versus Matterport DanSmigrod 10 1 yearEricTsai (171): @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

StreetEasy and Matterport by PropTech Consulting for Ryan Serhant Jonathan_Klein 3 1 year3dVuz (388): Hey All... Thankfully, Streeteasy has finally made it less difficult to post the matterport link onto a listing, BUT more sweeeet is that the buyers search page has a PROMINENT option to display ONLY listings witha 3D tour... Currently only Zillow3D Tours and Matterport are supported. BY THE WAY... HEY GLENN! For those of you who dont have a good Matterport-friendly website, SPEAK TO GLENN. Stay Safe ALL!
Split Level space to GSV, how? Wingman 5 1 yearWingman (2111): Matterport have handled it their own way. They removed subfloors that were indicated 1.5 and 2.5 as half(split) floors, merged some into one and created a 3rd floor. I do not mind how it is shown for floor labels but still do not know what will happen when it is published to GSV. I guess I will know after I publish it. Here is the tour

Matterport versus iGuide? CuttingEdge 9 1 yearmdezz (4): Just starting out in this end of the business and I already own a THETA z1- but looking into Matterport and now iGuide. Matterport supports the 1 with good results but alas no floor plans. Will dig into iGuide a bit. Thanks!
Matterport with Ricoh Theta Z1 🤜 versus 🤛 Zillow 3D Home with Z1 sherpa_media 5 1 yearsherpa_media (299): @lgmarketingco The shooting process is pretty much the same for both cameras, except the Ricoh is a bit faster and you cannot stand behind it like the Matterport camera. You can pull stills from a tour that was created with the Z1, they just aren't as high quality. See this post as an example: ✓ Ricoh Theta Z1 🤜 versus 🤛 Nikon Z6 FX-Format Mirrorless Camera

As for floor plans, I let my client choose the style they prefer. I personally think the 3D version is a more premium product and has a higher perceived value. JonJ

My First Matterport With Ricoh Theta Z1 Has Issues. Can you help? KeithMitchell 10 1 yearHome3D (3066): @KeithMitchell - that was the standard Pro camera. In open spaces you can sometimes go even 10 feet, but the space has to be wide in both X and Y axes. If one axis is long and the the other is short, like a long hallway, you need nodes to be closer together.

Showing Matterport tours on our website messes up the clients stats SlimTrim 4 1 yearWingman (2111): If it is just two websites(yours and the client) that you want to separate views from each other you can track views on each website through Google Analytics.

Why are all floor plans squeezed onto one page? leonherbert 3 1 yearleonherbert (901): @kjoman yes thank you I know that. Those few minutes could be better spent getting more jobs, which would make Matterport more money. It's all about efficiencies. Like there is no way to automatically download all 360 images from Matterport that you create. You have to download each individually unlike photographs that you can batch download. People will say oh but in this time you have taken to write this you could have sold more...

Dear Matterport - Your "Large Space" Billing Stinks! iTours360VR 9 1 yearConvrts (240): Hi Ian, I don't know if your question has been answered exactly but yes, if you already have a job which is over 100 scans you can duplicate it on your iPad prior to uoload and remove scans on each model in order to create 2 models which could be linked via a Mattertag (paste the URL of your scan point at the start on the alternate model into a tag) following uploading, The only downside is you don't get as nice a dollhouse as it will remain 2...

40,000sf into only 2-3 Matterport models. Possible? bryanhscott 18 2 yearsExpertise (696): HI Dan... I look forward to hearing about the basketball project. We did a somewhat similar space, a car museum about a year ago. It was basically a nightmare. The space was very same/same. It has super tall ceilings, and endless rows of cars that all look pretty much the same to the Matterport. The walls are also same same. It was very frustrating, with the MP sometimes eating up nice sized chucks of space happily, and then suddenly spitting...

One question from a recent invoice (if it's ok to keep this topic of costs going). Please let me know if I should start a new topic. We have been on the 200 space plan ($99/month) since we bought the camera back in 2016. Our recent invoice included an extra cost of $38 each for 3 spaces that were over 101 scans. I only scan show homes and they are always over 101 scans so I...

Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 2 yearsChangesin3d (124): The interesting part of this is the Closed System "business opportunity" to an open system with other peoples hardware. Matterport sells a amera and sells a business opportunity with an expensive camera and then allows others to have almost the same presentation at a fraction of the cost. At least to my eyes the Z1 is equal to the Pro Cameras. Put this on a mobile devise and the comparisons get even closer. Most consumers for...

Wingman 3 2 yearsWingman (2111): I know there may be some delay but both tours have been on Google for at least 10 days and all linking inside each tour works properly. It is just no linking between each tour. I will try to get away with just downloading two closeby panos(one from each tour), link them and upload them back to GSV. I put their logo at nadir on the outdoor path but I do not really want it for their inside tours made with Matterport. It would take a lot of time...

360 cameras with Matterport? CFster 4 2 yearsCGPhoto (16): I used my Insta 360 One X camera for a month and did about 10 home scans with it before getting my Pro 2 Camera. Below is a tour with the Insta 360 camera. It's not as clear as the Matterport cameras. Much more grain in the image and much less detail when you zoom in. I found that I needed to have my scan positions closer together. When passing through doorways, I could only move the camera about 12" - 18" between scans. I also had to...
