Help with quality/resolution of furniture in Matterport Dollhouse View? nehuen 5 11 hoursDanSmigrod (22040): @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...
Matterport versus Metareal Stage - Comparison article ysabelc 11 18 hoursysabelc (135): @Lizzg Used a DSLR (either a Nikon D7500 or a D750 not sure which) + panoramic head for that one, then stitched the images together with ptgui. DSLR is still the best type of camera to use if you want to max out the photo quality.
Capture 3D mesh (like LiDAR point cloud) with imagery (like Matterport) oshioyi 9 22 hoursEaglePrecision (29): 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 2 daysCharlesHH (224): 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.

How enable a shopping cart within a Matterport MatterTag? (Help please) Virtualflip 9 6 daysVirtualflip (4): Hi, @HomePlanNZ, Thanks for the information. I think we will have to wait for Matterport to launch a feature to better integrate shopping carts. Best.

Asteroom versus Matterport DanSmigrod 10 10 daysEricTsai (52): @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

Matterport tags down? Npapps 7 2 monthslilnitsch (1239): *05/16/2020 - MatterTags appear to be coming back online:
StreetEasy and Matterport by PropTech Consulting for Ryan Serhant Jonathan_Klein 3 2 months3dVuz (334): 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 2 monthsWingman (1309): 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 ADA Compliant Virtual Tours BarnesCreative 11 2 monthsGETMYVR (388): I'll give Barnes Creative some good props either way for coming up with this idea. It's going to help us all. Took me a little bit to let it all sink in.
Matterport versus iGuide? CuttingEdge 9 2 monthsmdezz (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 2 monthssherpa_media (160): @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
Are you offering Matterport AND EyeSpy360? realeshots 13 3 monthsEyeSpy360_Support (46): Hi @bryanhscott, Yes! You can certainly upload your own floor plan and then make it interactive on our platform. Please see this webpage below for a step-by-step video tutorial on how to do this: Do let me know if you have any more questions.
Matterport SDK/API Developers: Have you got approval? HomePlanNZ 2 3 monthsmcuddy (125): Just sent my mail Scott. Thanks for the heads up!!!!
Matterport and Insta360 Cameras - Same Tour davedion 13 3 monthsJonJ (1649): @Davedion, Yes, the floor plan was created from the Z1 images exclusively. I did not use any additional tools or technology. 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 3 monthsHome3D (2259): @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.
EyeSpy360 🤜 vs 🤛 Matterport sherpa_media 4 4 monthsGlennTremain (2061): I just found this through kevin dole. great find Dan!Can this allow the agent to switch view to other properties with the client(s) still there? I have been informed that there is something coming out that does that. EyeSpy360 like @sherpa_media did here is outstanding!!!
Can you display a Matterport Tour on Zillow. The answer is Yes! Kinda. lilnitsch 6 4 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): Zillow Screen Grab from example above by @SoldSquad @SoldSquad Thanks for sharing the no link/link workaround. That's great! Dan
Showing Matterport tours on our website messes up the clients stats SlimTrim 4 4 monthsWingman (1309): 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. No need to do anything, just check analytics for a specific page where it is displayed. Have a look at the attached picture. I have created a special page at where I pass the parameter called "m" and this is an unique...

Google Street View and Matterport ??????????? leonherbert 21 5 monthsleonherbert (892): @Astroprojector It must be because I complained to them again today :)
Why are all floor plans squeezed onto one page? leonherbert 3 5 monthsleonherbert (892): @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...
Matterport Launches Enterprise Platform to Scale 3D Model Across Verticals DanSmigrod 4 5 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): @Metroplex360 Thank you for your insight. Yes. Exciting to see that Matterport is "organizing themselves, standardizing things to match industry norms and then offering professional tech support." It's amazing what MP/embed, WP Matterport Short Code, WP3D Models WordPress Plugin, CAPTUR3D and other 3rd party services have done with the Matterport REST API - previously, without much documentation. The more 3rd party services...

Hi All, Which one 360º camera feature do I recommend for real estate photographers that is a must have when deciding which of 50 3D/360º cameras is right for you?

Dear Matterport - Your "Large Space" Billing Stinks! iTours360VR 9 6 monthsConvrts (219): 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...
Has Matterport seen their best days? fotoguy 15 6 monthsmori (760): In regards of construction, it´s very simple: MP is not accurate enough. And with handheld LIDAR coming up, they have nothing to compete. Here I look forward to the office opening of GeoSlam in The Hague.

40,000sf into only 2-3 Matterport models. Possible? bryanhscott 18 8 monthsExpertise (373): 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...
Matterport Comparison: Pro1, Pro2, Ricoh Theta V/Z1, Insta360 One X lilnitsch 5 8 monthslilnitsch (1239): @Ghagendorf with any of the 360 cameras you will have to use a 3rd party for floor plans. I use Siva he does good work with just a Matterport link he is reasonably priced and turns around in short order
I have Matterport Classic Pricing: What happens when I exceed my plan? WayanMatt 9 9 monthsBiggles (43): Dan, I agree with everyone here, your advice is so helpful to us all. 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...

Download My Original Matterport Scans SNFmarkerting 8 10 monthsWingman (1309): I have just checked a few from a Matterport model published to Google and then downloaded for adding an extra connection and for a backup on an external HDD. They are pretty damn good with 8192x4096 pixels resolution. The ones from Theta V are 3 times smaller. If Matterport has ever going to let us to get 360 from their Capture app directly I will probably stop using even my Theta Z1. Matterport ones are still much better than those coming...
Everything GeoCV can do - in two minutes Home3D 22 11 monthschermle (4): I just had an interesting conversation with someone that had knowledge of GEOtv status and it didn't sound good, as in all engineers have left and it was looking like Geo was going to loose their lawsuit with matterport Has anyone hear anything that perhaps has a bit of verifiable positive news

Issues with Matterport hard links within mattertags. leonherbert 7 1 yearVTLV (2061): @leonherbert - I had a similar issue last February and got out of the beta program only to have it come right back. Support went cold. The issue didn't change. I created a BitLy link and the link worked from there. Have you considered trying this idea?
Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 1 yearChangesin3d (121): 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...

GSV, How to connect a Theta V outdoor tour with a Matterport tour nearby. Wingman 3 1 yearWingman (1309): 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...

Proposal to Matterport for incremental space add-ons between new tiers bryanhscott 5 1 yearJwbuckl (337): @bryanhscott Thank you for the very thoughtful post and I am pleased Dee got to you.

360 cameras with Matterport? CFster 4 1 yearCGPhoto (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...
To Matterport MSPs and Customers Jwbuckl Jump to first page32Jump to last page 1 yearArchimedStudio (542): @leonvanzweel It's already the case now. 1 over 100, and you move to the 200 plan. 1 over 200, and you move to the 300 plan. But you have a great point for NOT wanting to pay a plan yearly! Your needs may change on a month to month basis. @DanSmigrod, I will try to be available to listen at 5pm (if I understand where to watch the live feed). I will not interact live, but might take notes that I will address after. My point has absolutely...

3D/360° tour comparisons: Matterport, GeoCV, NodalView, Z-3D Home, (Cupix) Home3D 24 1 yearShakoure (306): @AntonYakubenko ...Very thankful & humbled that you - as co-founder of a direct MP competitor - make the time to engage with 3D spatial photographers on WGAN. If only MP would have a c-level or VP person on this platform to engage members in dialogue and answer questions. That level of inter-personal connection will take you a long way. Thank you.

White-Label Needed imad 3 2 yearsMiguelea (75): I think you are aiming at a wrong clientele. Big clients have big budgets and can buy pretty any new technology under 10.000$ based on feeling. They don't need a reasonable business model for it. My sweet spot is in the middle. I am aiming at clients that are not big enough to buy it themselves but big enough to buy my service continuously. And of course MP is so user friendly that anybody with 5000$ can start MSP. So only scanning service...
INMAN - Do 3D Home Tours Matter? Home3D 5 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9281): It's funny how we have these expectations of RJ Pittman to create a paradigm shift. Matterport Tours have a value for some realtors, because some of them use them effectively to differentiate themselves. There are different ways to look at everything. It's a tool and it works well in many industries. Matterport is a platinum sponsor at Inman this year. Interesting that such an article would be posted right now...
