Are you a real estate photographer researching Creating Virtual Tours? DanSmigrod 2 27 daysDanSmigrod (22040): Virtual Tour Pro by Ben Claremont
Help with quality/resolution of furniture in Matterport Dollhouse View? nehuen 5 9 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...
Transferring a Matterport Classic and Transferring Models Between Accounts? TimothyThomas 3 16 hoursDanSmigrod (22040): @TimothyThomas From this WGAN Forum discussion: Plus ... ✓ How to game the new Matterport Pricing ✓ How does the "Matterport Transfer Space" work? Best, Dan
Compressing/resizing photos 8643d 4 3 daysrudyespinosa (7): @8643d There is a trial. See top right last menu option titled ">GET THE TRAIL". You might need to be on a desktop. I use the lightroom plugin and it also comes with stand-alone. Been using it for many years.

The 3 Best Drones For Beginners DanSmigrod 4 15 daysEaglePrecision (29): I assume the question is: "Best drone for photographers to begin flying to get aerial shots?" Arguably the easiest drones to start with are the DJI Mavic series. One could argue that you should not invest a lot in your first drone but you still need a decent camera. So, with those criteria, I would suggest a Mavic Air or the new Mavic Air 2 which is getting good reviews. You can get all your equipment for under $1,000. However,...
My 1st Matterport 3D Tour>Your Suggestions to Improve My Scanning/Trimming? DanSmigrod 2 17 daysbriangreul (363): Nice scan. Try to think in terms of who is going to use the tour. Scan where someone would want to stand and look. In this particular case you don't have scans in front of the merchandise. I'd also have disabled "blur faces" because it took out the marketing by the changing rooms. Once you have a few scans away from the door (like 3 to 5) you can shut the door behind you. And at the end if you wanted you can come back and scan...
Exploring Options Virtual Tour Platform and Floor Plan Options ... PowerHouseMedia 3 20 daysandriystrebkov (77): Hello, Maybe you should try our services at iGUIDE, our camera generates 3D tours, floor plans, and square meters measurements in one package every time you scan a property. Also, these measurements and floor plans will have a high degree of accuracy since we use the LiDAR Laser for them. Plus, unlike with MP, you won't have to pay monthly fees to keep your tours active, you would pay only once per project (per tour) and then you can keep...
Benaco 3D Virtual Tour Software ajay2011 6 27 daysRomainReparage (125): I like Benaco. It's not cheap for big project but it can be a good solution for vizualisation. You can have self hosting and european cloud. It's a nice company They are helpful with support. i hope they can improve some of their solutions but it looks kind of sleepy platform. The main problem is you can't edit if a 360 doesn't link. the tags are not accurate.
Options for self hosting virtual tour on own website JakeMcK 2 28 daysDanSmigrod (22040): @JakeMcK Welcome to the WGAN Forum. For self-hosting virtual tour options, it would be helpful to know: 1. client category 2. client's use case for the tour 3. what "inductions" means. (Can you say a different way?) 4. help understanding if you prefer self-hosted or embed (cloud hosted) (and why) 5. why you have chosen not to use Cupix. That will provide much insight 6. "big picture" of what you are trying to achieve for...
Indoor walkthrough using GoPro Hero 8 leeverdon 5 30 daysleeverdon (223): Thanks everyone for your responses. The Hypersmooth functionality in the GoPro Hero 8 is very good. However, a gimbal will certainly make the footage a lot smoother. That said, I spent quite a bit of time investigating the gimbal options for the Hero 8 and unfortunately due to its new form factor there aren't any gimbals that are compatible at the moment. I dug deeper and actually found one that is compatible. The FeiyuTech G6 Handheld...

Newbie Matterport Question - 360 View Labels Placement Wrong OutermostImaging 6 1 monthOutermostImaging (4): @HomePlanNZ @Wingman Thank you both for your input. I've tried rotating and adjusting the label position and zipping back to the other to see if it made a difference and I could not find any (but I'm new so much to learn). I did speak to Matterport support late today and they confirmed it was a bug. It was one that they had see before and thought they had squashed but evidently is back (their words). They said that they would follow-up with...
looking to start up my own business Selyah 20 1 monthysabelc (135): Glad to hear you can get another one! The Theta Z1 is really one of the best 360 cameras out there right now, imo. Yep, you can do exactly that! Yes that's sort of the way we're doing exteriors right now. Though instead of putting them in separate rooms, the better way is to still put related panos together in the same room (1 room for the backyard, 1 room for the lawn, etc.), making sure the room type is 'Ground plane' while you're...
MPembed imported video not integrating with Matterport Space matt4hutch 2 2 monthsahagert (48): hey there! Did you ever get an answer to your question? I am trying to do the same. For the tour to start with the video.
Viability of Opening a Virtual Tour Only Business HIGH5iVER 3 2 monthsbryanhscott (756): @HIGH5iVER If your target client is a small business, possibly. Many small businesses are pubs, sports bars and restaurants, who may also need still photos for their menu selections. Absent that, why not? For real estate professionals; agents and property managers, including VRBO and AirBNB, nearly all want and need still photos in addition to 3D tours. As well, though many won't admit it, they need (because their target customers require...
Can Matterport camera be used for anything else? itsrichphoto 12 2 monthsleonherbert (892): @JuMP This makes absolutely no sense. I have been a Matterport user for quite a few years and understand the ecosystem. I am not sure what you are trying to sell. With Matterport you can archive unlimited number of virtual tours if you are on the new plan. What prey tekk is this third party program that can make these tours come back to life?
Does Matterport deliver floor plans on the weekends? Andy17 13 2 monthsWingman (1309): You just provide a link to your Matterport tour and they do floor plans from it. They do ask you to add them as a collaborator on your Matterport account and I have done it. However I do not think it is for floor plans though.
Please help me understand how the Matterport plans work DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsambientar360 (8): Hello Alej. I am Luis from Argentina, I am on the Clasic Plan. I know a little about the new plans... I think that if one month you make 25 projects, for the next month you should buy "starter plan" which allow you to host more spaces. If interested send me private mesage and we can talk in spanish. Regards, Luis

Opinion of the Ipad (7th generation) and Matterport Pro 2? wvirtualhomes 5 2 monthsMeshImages (947): @wvirtualhomes Yes, the ipad is the brain of your camera. The camera itself does not do much more than capturing the data, but the ipad does all the processing and is repsonsible for speed and maybe future features (if you think of the new ipad pro 2020 with the built-in lidar).
Do you change clients for MatterVids? ivanalloshe 6 2 monthsMiami305 (20): I through them in for free.

Another matterport scanning question rastas 15 2 monthsleonherbert (892): @JuMP This is not my first rodeo and no I don't think your solution is a good one unless I decided to use that. @Wingman You may be correct about limits but they either have a server timeout or something like that, that prevents a very large model from processing. Also it is folly to create massive tours that cannot display well in a browser. Also we might as well forget about stitching, I do not believe anyone at Matterport now knows what...
Kandao qoocam 8K dave1380 3 2 monthsNN2020 (4): Dan, I agree. I too bought a Qoocam 8k with the idea of offering virtual tours. The camera is still in beta. You have to be a very advanced photographer or settle for the (limiting) auto modes provided. VERY difficult to implement an HDR workflow with the camera.
Advice for an architect that is starting a side hustle offering 3D/360? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsTripp (4): I am also looking at providing architectural 3D for the construction and architectural world and I came to the same conclusion as Marco that not having control and ownership of the content is a no go, though I would also like to hear from others their pros and cons to using Matterport vs.Theta? Thank you, Tripp
What would you do differently if you were just starting out as a MSP today? DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsJonJ (1649): Find a mentor that has reached the level of success that you are looking to achieve and is willing to invest their time into you. A good mentor will save you money and more importantly, will save you time! This is a great forum, but there is so much information, it can be difficult to ingest. A mentor can help you cut through the noise and guide you through what you need to know based on where you are in the business.

My first Matterport Scan: Feedback? Advice? (Much appreciated) DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsHome3D (2259): Very nice work. Most of my career was spent as a TV commercial director so I always enjoy walking around a studio and reminiscing, which you made very easy this morning. Wish I could stop by for a visit but it’s a bit far from Los Angeles. But I wish you the very best!

I sent your post - and other @EyeSpy360 posts - to EyeSpy360 for comment. I could imagine that they are just swamped with business (as likely all 3D/360 virtual tour platforms). EyeSpy360 is an excellent platform. It takes a few tours to get the swing of it.

Re-scans not Updating MP4 Movie and GIF PropertyGuyCLT 6 3 monthsCharlesHH (224): I have found the auto videos and anigifs to be useless recently. Starting and ending in odd places. Today I did a Porsche dealership and the anigif opens and ends at the doorway to a sales office! Previous scan of really beautiful offices chose to start in a coffee corner!

Considering 3D Virtual Tour Business PamelaHaley 11 3 monthsPamelaHaley (13): @wingman I didn't see the conversation screenshot yesterday. I see the discrepancy in how you feel about pricing has a lot to do with where we live. I'm not sure if it works in Australia, or whatever part of Australia you are in. Let's say, my 1,400 sq ft house in Georgia for sells for $130k. IF I go into the city of Atlanta, GA that same home is worth $200-300k. In Los Angeles, California, that same home is $400-650k. It's about all about the...
Just starting to thinking about 3D/360 Virtual Tours for Real Estate? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): @GETMYVR Since you have Matterport, I would recommend that your second camera be compatible with Matterport. That means (as of 6 April 2020): ✓ Ricoh Theta V (quality conscious) ✓ Ricoh Theta Z1 (quality conscious) ✓ Insta360 One X (ease of use for 360º photo spheres and easy of use for live-streaming) This way, you have a "backup" camera for Matterport and can use your backup with other 3D/360 virtual tour platforms for...

Ricoh Theta Z1 for Matterport Tour: Grainy? How to improve picture quality? profx 7 3 monthsprofx (4): @leonherbert I have been using the Ricoh app during shoots to adjust the white balance, and have noticed that this will affect how the capture app captures the images, the white balance will be different. The problem with that is you if you do manual white balance, the capture app will have problems referencing other scans if you change the white balance between scans. I figured if you set the ricoh app to aperture priority then you can choose...

Need a review from my latest project marcoastan 12 4 monthsbryanhscott (756): @marcoastan Thanks for the info. I appreciate the issue you mentioned about stability of the camera at the end of the mast you used. If you intend to do more of this type of "elevated" work, you might check out the heavy, telescoping, fiberglass masts offered at: You can purchase one of their multi-section masts, or just buy 2 or 3 of the larger sections by themselves. Each section is 7'...
Best camera and tour software for inventory building sam17 7 5 monthsWeGoVirtual (10): Matterport is not cloud based, they have their own servers and your tours stay on that server, Matterport "owns" them. With another camera model such as the Insta cameras - but there are many more - you are independent from Matterport and can copy the tour wherever you want. Any hosting provider will be OK, although some Virtual Tour hosting companies offer additional services, such as more or less sophisticated software to compose...
Camera for Construction Videos ? ConstructionVideos 4 5 monthsHome3D (2259): @ConstructionVideos - I concur! I've been very happy using the Insta360 One X for a huge construction project her in LA. Mostly I use it on the end of their "extended selfing stick" to put the camera in all sorts of places otherwise impossible, and then I extract HD video in edit, aiming the view where I see most value. However, I'd probably buy the new Insta360 One R today, due to greater flexibility, longer battery life and...
MatterTags: the text obscures the top of the image. Help please! Marshallartsmedia 3 5 monthsGladsmuir (184): Hi Paul, Good luck with your project. My solution to the crop on the Mattertags is to open the images in Photoshop. I set a crop like 900 px high by 600 px wide. Then I crop the image leaving a blank space above. Then I flatten the image and save under a new name. If the top area, which will be white has too contrast I fill the blank space with a similar colour to the image background. This is a tour that shows the effect Link To see an...

I've already had someone point out a window that wasn't marked and easy fix, but this particular client had a "Zero tolerance" policy.
How to remove a weird artifact from a Matterport Digital Twin? Shawn_P 24 5 monthsShawn_P (49): @Gerhard I did 3 scans around the table. I think I may have removed one. I believe I had the tripod at a about 5ft. I usually have it a bit higher but was told by Matterport to lower it. Could you explain a bit more about marking the top railing? Not sure I follow but I certainly don't need anything jumping around either ;) Thank you for the advice.
Newbie: How to not see the Stitch Line in my 360s? tboyle 10 6 monthstboyle (18): Thank you. Yes, I am familiar with Ben,his Virtual Tour Pro and his software ratings.

Need advice about the purchase of a DSLR or Mirrorless camera. Mungo 5 8 monthsJonJ (1649): Hi @Mungo, If you are looking for a budget setup, I would recommend a Canon T6 paired with the Canon 10-18mm f4.5/5.6. This is a great starting place that will not break the bank. If you are able to spend a little more money, or if you can find a used camera, I would recommend stepping up to either a Canon 70D or 80D. These cameras have much higher resolution and have the additional feature of being able to bracket up to 9 images without the...
Matterport Tour for Critique DougMagners 2 8 monthsDougMagners (40): Well, this is embarrassing (but in a good way, if that's possible). While checking that my link worked, I discovered that somehow issue #2 is no longer an issue! Just an hour ago while I was working on the tour, I could not move from the main space to the entry hall, but now that I tried it again, it works the way it is supposed to! Not sure how that magically started working properly, but it did. I'll take it. Best, Doug

Get noticed and grow your brand tresdepro 1 11 monthstresdepro (269): There are plenty of strategies you can implement, but this one, in my opinion, is effortless. No many people realize that it's simple to get noticed. Let say you have a contract to scan a property; you go through your checklist: camera, tripod, battery charged, iPad charged, business card, etc. You get into your car and drive to the property, stopped by the gas station, the tank is full, grab a bottle of water and continue. You arrived at...

Matterport Newbie Seeks Feedback on First Matterport 3D Tour DanSmigrod 2 1 yeartresdepro (269): @DanSmigrod @SNFmarkerting I would disable the 360 from the garden, also disable 2 from the other side just leave one. You can try scanning when the sun sets or sunrise so you can catch the big wall with more detail, also extend your tripod as much as you can and add a few more scan points. Also, try making a few scans at night. hope that helps

While I remain anonymous to protect myself "in theory", I think if Matterport started terminating accounts they would find themselves in more hot water than they would like. Then again, who knows where the edge of what they will do lies? Sure, I'll poke around the FTC site. There may be something there and if enough of us complain, maybe something happens.

Beginner camera for photography JonJ 4 1 yearJonJ (1649): I shoot almost all of the properties that I photograph using a pole. I always take 3 photos of each property (left, center and right) using a pole. If find that using a pole reduces the amount of geometric distortion that is created when straightening verticals. Using a pole is much faster than pulling out the drone and you can shoot HDR with a much higher quality lens. I do not use a Cam Ranger. I just set my timer to 10 seconds and throw the...

How to integrate WP3D Models with a WIX Website DanSmigrod 3 2 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @Metroplex360 While I would agree with you that any Matterport Service Provider starting out should build their site on WordPress so that they can take advantage of WP3D Models, for those that already have a WIX, SquareSpace or other site, they can still add WordPress just for WP3D Models. This way, the photographer does not have to redo their entire website to get the benefits of WP3D Models. Happy holidays, Dan

Practical & Sellable Usage of MT Measurement MarkCantu 1 2 yearsMarkCantu (103): Newbie question here again, I was wondering if there is a target segment for Matterport's Measurement feature.

Best stabilizer camera for indoor RE filmin Virtuality22 4 2 yearsfrstbubble (604): @Virtuality22 There are many new options out there. The best is a matter of choice.

Getting the best GSV w/ your Matterport BrianM 7 2 yearsMetroplex360 (9281): My tips: #1) When scanning, try to keep very STRAIGHT paths. It makes much more sense for navigation to be done at 90 degree angles -- and even with Matterport tours, this turns out much better than simply scanning haphazardly in order to complete your dollhouse. #2) Disable unnecessary scans. As GSV is a bit more cumbersome to navigate, you are going to want to make your tour a bit more streamlined -- no bonus panos for fun! Try to trim...

3D or 360° - What's the Difference LMTLESS 3 2 yearsadvancedhdr (220): Lmtless, MP is a 3D camera with 360 capabilities. You use the 360 mostly for external shots with much sunlight, the 3D is for inside without sunlight. 3D cameras do not like direct sun as the IR sensors (lasers) can't beam thru to record spacial data. With Google Street View, you would upload as 360 for GSV. I too am a newbie, hope this helps.

Help Understanding Matterport Bad Scan BobbyG 12 3 yearsJonJ (1649): @BobbyG, I would scan the core and then incrementally outward from each of the hallways so that they end up connecting at each of the corners. If you can get the center to line up, you should get better results. The reason your minimap has a misalignment is due to the aggregation of minor errors as you scanned around the building. By the time you work your way around the large space, the compounding error is too large to resolve. Also, you...

360 Views and Snapshots Only? skyblue1 6 3 yearsMetroplex360 (9281): @skyblue1 I personally think that that's a good idea. Matterport may consider adding 'Core360' - a mode in Workshop that allows free shooting of 360s with GeoCoordinates from the Pro-2 camera. No 3D Model. If they want, they could treat 100 360s as 1 model. They could then have a special player for their Matterport Core 360 that doesn't utilize 3D. It would also be nice if Matterport had a mode where you could shoot an outside tour with...

Matterport Facebook Ad 3SixtyNow 7 3 years3SixtyNow (417): They are more about selling the cameras than actually helping us create more demand. Every add I see is about buying the camera.

Smoothly rotating 360, what am I missing? aristepp 2 3 yearsDouglasMeyers (1010): Here is a little trick I found... When I start a scan I know the camera goes clock wise so I know that the spin will start pretty much where I started it at the location. I have noticed when you use walk thru and the pictures are in use when it goes to the next scan it starts where I started it, sooo don't start it on a wall or what not and point the starting position where you think it will look best at the start. Good Luck...

Ugly doll house Radie842 2 3 yearsQueen_City_3D (2587): It needs a few additional scans and some additional trimming. I'd suggest one or 2 more scans in the mechanical/furnace room, even if those scans are later deactivated, and 1 more scan in the upstairs bedroom where the black spot shows on the floor plan view. It looks like that's where the camera was positioned and so it didn't have that area scanned. Same thing...

unique/personal links to 3d tours JTW_VR 8 4 yearsQueen_City_3D (2587): The hosting of spaces (hosting fees) is the real money-maker for a company like Matterport, so even if the technology evolves to where they no longer give support to new scans, I can't see why they'd ever give up hosting existing ones and getting that recurring revenue for as long as the scans are viewable on webpages or mobile devices.
Creepy scans Radie842 6 4 yearsViewing (583): Yep had a very strange one a couple of months back. An old Victorian former Inn/Coach house that was undergoing some structural work before being sold.

It was the upstairs front bedrooms that gave me the heebie jeebies particularly. Then after...

Matterport Workshop ? JMEPhotos 4 4 yearsfrstbubble (604): @JMEPhotos If you duplicate and upload a model it will change. Say you delete some scans or find you need to add a scan. There are two workarounds to ensuring the client will not have to change a link on their end. 1. use WP3D Models. You then change the link in there and link provided to the client is to the WP3D models. It is a great WP plugin. 2. Use a URL shortener. When you update a model then all you do is change it in the shortener...

Questions from a prospect....advice? VRealExperience 2 4 yearsDSPhoto (112): You license the work to them based on how they plan on using it. More exposure and time means more money How you go about that is a whole other ball game. Other random thoughts: Remember to keep licensing fees seperate from production fees. Do not qoute a price that combines production with licensing. It makes it hard to place proper value to each. Avoid licensing for more 3 years at a time and list the licensing for a second year.

Matterport Vs. Google Radie842 2 4 yearsjfantin (1730): MP and GSV are two different animals that happen to use similar concepts. In my opinion they complement each other but are not direct competitors because the value proposion is different. Quality is different and the navigation experience is superior with MP. The dollhouse is a killer feature for some customers (although not to everybody). While with Google StreetView you get more exposure because any time a user searchs for a business or a...

AAS 3 4 yearsMetroplex360 (9281): If Matterport would allow MSPs to sell cameras and receive a kick-back (either $ or credit), I would love to help sell cameras and offer a free consultation with scans. In my opinion, you cannot stop a Realtor from buying a camera, therefore, the best position to be in is to HELP them make that decision by allowing them to participate with you, have a hands on, and decide if its the right decision. I think that if Matterport ended the $600...

Server Problems? ArchimedStudio 4 4 yearsArchimedStudio (542): Thanks @Shane ! It was a long shot... I had problems with my account during the holidays, and had to create a new one in emergency. I've been using the second one ever since. Apparently, Matterport decided the new temporary one was due and disabled it. Good thing Matterport support works on Sundays! After resetting my first account, I was able to log in, and weirdly enough, all scans now work fine. @Jamie ... I use IE. When I couldn't open...
My first scan cswartz 11 5 yearscswartz (95): Well Thanks
Contracts JohnBarker 1 5 yearsJohnBarker (1): Hi I'm a newbie and trying to get organised providing a Matterport service in Sweden to realtors, B&B's, retirement homes, venues etc. I'm wondering what sort of contracts other Matterport service providers are using with their clients. Especially with regard to permissions. John
Considering Matterport-Big list of questions VirtualizeLife 8 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): A lot of great questions in this thread. Anyone else want to add their 2 cents? (How much is that in Euros?)
Unboxing my Matterport Last Year Drew 5 5 yearsmpmare00 (7): Are you marketing MP tours mainly to your sphere or do you have a unique way of marketing to sellers that wins listings?
Workshop implementation issue... TerryEibeck 7 5 yearspixelray (569): I did find this...a little hard to follow though. clickable text Dan, you have any updates on accessing workshop via Ipads? Sure would be nice. I noticed this issue in a recent thread as well.
Custom Floor Names sshannon 4 5 yearspmjacoby (28): It's possible to change the names of the floors in Workshop Classic by just clicking on the floor name in the list of scans and typing a new name in. I tried doing the same in in the new version of Workshop and couldn't. Perhaps there's another way to do it in the new Workshop?
Something like placester in Spanish itsfer 13 5 yearsHortonTeam (4): Thanks. excited about V2 and branding. Anyone outsourcing with a VA that knows Matterport, Placesetter, and WP3D Models :) I would love to hire as well. :)
What specs are necessary for mobile device? sdandphoto 3 5 yearsBabluN (49): As per the website : "An Apple iPad Air 2 or higher is strongly recommended for the best experience. Apple iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, and iPad Mini 3 are also supported. All iPads require iOS 7.1 or higher."
Downloading Unity plug-in orbitvisions 7 5 yearsTosolini (3256): I'm only able to open Workshop in IE at this time. I don't have Firefox, but Chrome and Edge are not playing well with the Unity plug-in for me too.
Messed up continuity with door closed/open Dennis_N 11 5 yearsron0987 (1369): I have never used it as I have showed in the diagram but if you attempt to use four lines just to in close just the door it might work, if you try it it wont cost you anything to process it again. Ron
My first property scan Dennis_N 2 5 yearsfalconshakka (68): good points to Sun light...BAD!! the idea behind having good coverage is to create a nice clean doll house and floor plan view can always disable those scan points that you used to build the 3D geometry and have a nice flow through the house going up spiral stair cases, it's better to have more scan data to prevent artefacts or stitching errors...doing every other step seems to work pretty well minimizes...
Pleasant surprise. (I hope) Dennis_N 1 5 yearsDennis_N (88): I did my first scan today, of a beautiful property (made by the best builder in the area) and afterwards I realized how much a bottleneck uploading will be. I'll definitely have to bring my ipad home because Time Warner cable treats home connections with a far better upload bandwidth than a business connection. (isn't that ridiculous) The pleasant surprise is that the app supports resuming uploading, and didn't freak out once it lost...
Long time storage on Matterport Cloud kc1302 20 5 yearsJamie (1848): Yep you are correct Your $149 monthly fee includes 11 models. Remember up to 100 scans is 1 model and above this is counted as 2. The balance is charged at $19 each. If you are doing very high volume, give them a call and see what they can do about the price. You can also get a yearly plan and basically get 2 months/22 models for free by paying in advance
Going up against a "3D Tour Provider" Gerhard 8 5 yearsGlenda (220): But can Google StreetView (or any other 360 tour) do this? Hint: this is the "sizzle" ;)
Best way for customers to view the file Biggles 5 5 yearsJamie (1848): Don't worry @biggles, it won't bite mate :)
How Do You Deliver The Final Product? BrianM 3 5 yearsUnrealerAleksi (49): In my view the best option is to think about the customer first, and plan the delivery accordingly. Most of the people in real estate are not very tech savvy. So I would just send them the matterport tour link + photos OR combine photos/3D-tours/video in player and send a link to that. As a message we have a very generic text, that highlights common problems with matterport and also gives some ideas for "best...
Share Measureable Showcase With Client BrianM 7 5 yearssmcclell (156): It would be great if there was a way to easily give clients the ability to take measurements other than collaborating. I am finding that with how inaccurate it is I'm not sure what purposes it holds other than for me to measure for basic floorplans.
When do you get the OBJ file? JHR 13 5 yearsBill (285): Being in the industry and attending many VR conferences around the world we are privy to some up and coming projects. Many are public knowledge and some not. I personally give Matterport about 1 year before we see "serious" competition providing more for less. Matterport is riding the gravy train as far as they can whilst dominating this particular market. Overall we can still maintain profit in providing tours to clients. But we know...
Glass walls and partitions. chdsi80 2 5 yearsGarySnyder (1816): You need to mark-up the glass walls as windows otherwise you can walk right through the walls to any spot that you've shot a scan as the camera thinks it a clear approach. Make sure that you leave the door open into each office otherwise you won't be able to enter the office. I would suggest marking up the glass wall as you shoot the office complex. This will help the camera align each scan correctly.
Get default background image JacobClausen 7 5 yearsrpetersn (1956): Hey @mikeE... No, WP3D doesn't currently obscure/obfuscate/hide/etc any of the URL data. One could potentially try to do some of that using Javascript or something, but any decent developer would be able to see through it using a modern browser's debugging tools. I suppose there's a bit of "security through obscurity" you might gain....but not sure how much it'd be worth it. Are you having a problem with people...
Yesterday I did my first two scans. BrianM 5 5 yearstradetickers (10): I find the highlight tour guided system to be annoying. Not smooth enough yet. Not yours, just in general.
Remove security cameras from a business BrianM 10 5 yearsBill (285): This is good information mwaychoff as we are GSA Schedule Contract holders and we will soon be offering 3D Matterport Services through GSA. thx
Upload speeds Kracka60 26 5 yearspixelray (569): Ok, I think I figured this out - at least I hope so anyway. Late last night, I took apart my router. Cleaned it and then reset it and then did some updates. Changed a security setting. Re-uploaded one more time. Woke up this morning and everything was uploaded and I had final 3D models. So, I'm guessing all this was a problem with my router. It's just weird b/c I have done many other uploads that worked fine. If this happens to me...
Thank you for the professionalism Seventhsunrise 5 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @Seventhsunrise Thanks Steve! Positive energy always welcome and appreciated. Best, Dan
Pricing CarlosFHdz 10 5 yearsJML (1): Its too often that more or less young guys start offering these kind of services, either drone or anything that has to do with electronics and basically ruin the market with a pricing that is completely out of the range. As Cathie said, they simply dont understand business cost and earning structure good enough in order to justify proper pricing. When this happens, its too late as the client for sure will only remember the lowest price someone...
Learning Curve - First Scan StevenHattan 8 5 yearsJohnBecker (385): You can always see the total number of scans at the upper left of the mini map. The number has a green dot next to it. (The dot turns yellow if you get up to 200 scans.)
My first Matterport Listing Video CathieRasch 5 5 yearsJML (1): I read other blog writing about this photo issue after writing here and it seems that most do think that the Matterport is not enough for high quality photos. I find this quite surprising as although Ive shot many houses myself with Canon 1Dx for example using HDR 5-7 bracketing, at least 75% of the other pictures seen in online services are so poor quality that I wonder what these agents think when they post such pictures to present their...
Linking to other models pheller 9 5 yearsDoyleRealtor (512): It'd also be good for builders, I've tried embedding multiple on the same page but it slows it down to much. I'll have to look into the solution above, I've just been busy lately.
Sanning times REMAX_EDGE 2 5 yearsCarlosFHdz (604): At first, it takes longer because you're being conservative on the distance from scan to scan point. As you get more practice, it will be faster. You will start to push the distance from each scan, specially in bigger rooms. Now, we're at about 35 min per 1000 sqft. I personally did a 6300 sqft property in 3 hours and 4200 sqft property in 2 hours. The layout of the home is also a determining factor in time to scan. I would recommend...
Does a scan ever expire on the ipad? Ramyr 3 5 yearsdavidpylyp (178): WOW Once a property is sold is there a need to keep the model on my CAPTURE? As it is sold, I deleted it Under our rules [Toronto Canada] I would need the permission of the new owner to continue using this as an advertisement.
merging projects qmutton 4 5 yearsRenderingSpace (605): I've had a few occasions where I've had to do two tours instead of one usually because I can't get the separate spaces to connect. What I do is create a property website then embed both of the tours onto the page. Here's a couple examples: The first one had a studio and cottage. The second one had glass on the stairs which confused the camera...
Anxiety over MP model risks cdpmedia 6 5 yearsccctucker (154): If your going to pay the money and buy this machine, your job is to make back your investment as soon as you can and then make as much after that, until the ride is over. Technology only lasts until something perceived as better comes out.
why a Sunken Living Room Becomes a Multi-Floor? Mikesobay 17 5 yearsMaria (106): I've had this issue pop up on occasion. Besides a sunk in living area become its own floor, we have also seen a floor of a split level home become an extension of the first floor. From my discussion with Matterport on the issue, they are tweaking their processing algorithms to prevent/reduce the occurrences of wrong floor issue. Back up your iPad scans so you can resubmit them later. Until then, turning of the floors is the best solution.
Matterport Capture App - International BabluN 11 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): Matterport announced today (10 September 2015) in an eBlast to its customers ... ---- The Matterport Capture App is now available in international Apple App Stores!

Matterport Height Recommendations Wonderdawg 8 5 yearsWonderdawg (316): Thanks for the examples Dan!
Real Estate Marketing CathieRasch 7 5 yearsal9901 (61): The most success I have had with realtors is to identify the brokerages who want to use this for most if not all of their listings, and want to work with me long term. You will find some who want to try it out for free, think it is a nice gimmick, but these are the realtors who will just waste your time. They want to see if it takes off and they want a dirt cheap price; neither are worth your time. Check my post above for some suggestions how to...
Hello from India BabluN 3 5 yearsBabluN (49): Hi Andrew, Thank You, that answers my question, please let me know if there is anything else that I need to keep a tab on...!
Shooting Detached Garage and Above Gameroom seanminor 9 5 yearsJohnBecker (385): When you scan the second floor of the garage, it should be a separate "floor" that isn't the same as the second floor of the house. I had a situation like that and Bob Horn at Matterport said that two non-contiguous "second floors" would have to get separate floors assigned to them in Capture. This may have changed since then, but it seems like the safe way to do it.
Pulled The Trigger Today seanminor 12 5 yearsDoyleRealtor (512): I would strongly suggest you make a clear distinction between your real estate business and your photography business.
Scan problem. 2500sq.m Andrew 5 5 yearsAndrew (224): Hi everyone! Ipad Air2 fixed my problem :) (as @DanSmigrod said). So, the result of my first matterport experience is here: I will be glad to hear advices, criticism and recommendations. Andrew
Matterport Newbie Questions DanSmigrod Jump to first page36Jump to last page 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @craigsauer that's how I made sure I did not mangle the model's face in this one. I did a lot of testing. This also reduced the time my model had to stay still. You will appreciate the collaboration with the model to get each shot exactly right (since we can not preview in Capture).
I am in DaveFahrny 3 5 yearsDaveFahrny (257): Yes I think Vegas has some great potential. I can't wait to get going. I hope I can learn how to use the camera quickly. My partner Suzie and I are Real Estate agents with Realty One Group also. There are 3 offices in Vegas with about 1500 agents. I love video and have been making video walk throughs of homes for over 3 years. How long have you been using Matterport?
My First Scan seanminor 6 5 yearsseanminor (40): Thanks for the thoughts and advice. @JohnBecker I didn't scan the J&J the way I had envisioned but I can see how we could drive ourselves crazy trying to make this perfect. The pantry I left alone as well because of the door situation. Further experimentation could be useful but like @RealEstateReadines says, keep some mystery in the home. @Lbelland it's funny but I was trying to scan in the middle of the master bath doorway, but I could...
walk through tour starting point. CameraBroad 9 5 years360Idaho (28): Thanks Julian but I'm not sure I worded my question correctly. I know how to capture the starting point but I want it to open up on the doll house floor plan view first. Then when you click on the walk thru icon, how do I choose where it starts or zooms to? You'd almost have to have two capture settings.
Pre Scan Checklist smcclell 8 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @falconshakka I recall capturing for 12 hours on one charge, so I never bought the inverter car charger cable for the Matterport camera. Matterport Car Charger Inverter Cable (USA) Because the iPad will not go 12 hours on one charge, I always charge the iPad Air via a battery in my pocket. iPad batteries...
Lighting Techniques for inside Wonderdawg 7 5 yearsron0987 (1369): Dan, I understand what you are saying about the first scan and using a grey scale to set the WB but with wide range of areas covered I do not see that working. Because if you set it for a Kitchen that could have fluorescent, halogen and or led lights then move to an area that has incandescent or natural light which would again throw the balance off. I think that overall it is good. But I have noticed this being an issue when I moved from...
How can you scan a home larger than 20,000SF Aghachi101 17 5 yearsGarySnyder (1816): Hi guys, here are two threads that cover the topics above and bring up issues you should all be aware when shooting large jobs. One last comment in regards to shooting a 20,000 SqFt property. If the property is occupied with loads of furniture this could take you far longer...
Colour Grading/Correcting Scans JulianHowardCT 14 5 yearsJulianHowardCT (49): @al9901 Blender is freeware, but still pretty good from all reports. Sounds like more work than what the product is potential worth to sell.

Do deleted scans count to upload scan total? Queen_City_3D 11 5 yearsJamie (1848): Yep. You could re-upload 99 or 110 and not be charged. On that note, if you trim a duplicate 110 to 99 and upload, you will be charged for 1. If you then upload the 110 after, they charge you an additional 1 (2 in total) That's from experience :( and it was 103
Newer user RE agent questions Christmas3024 5 5 yearsDaveFahrny (257): I am thinking of purchasing the Matterport Camera. Can anyone give me some advise. I can kind of see from the forum that it may not be as easy as presented in the commercials. I am a Realtor in Las Vegas. I make walk through videos of properties and post them on You Tube. I want to be sure of what I want to purchase. Thank You
What do you deliver to clients. markmc90 2 5 yearsalx3D (715): I am interested in what everyone else does. It depends what they pay. We usually send pictures and video with dropbox.

New Member Cindiewozniak 2 5 yearsJohnBecker (385): Cindie, other than turning on lights and/or closing blinds, you're pretty much at the mercy of the ambient light. The system handles it reasonably well, for the most part. As for mirrors, just try to mark them as early as you can. Even if they're not all the way visible in the scan, mark approximately where they are and then touch up the mark as the mirror's position is revealed more accurately in successive scans. The biggest obstacle I've...
Expiring a showcase? BrettMtn 10 5 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @BrettMtn depends :cool: 1. Clients often know; will use their number from marketing tools 2. Our FloorMe service (available to all) calculates SF 3. Measure in 3D Workshop (while time-consuming, we will do screen captures and proved to clients because they find it helpful) Obviously we all would prefer Matterport to calculate SF since many of us charge for our services this way.

Matterport for pre-construction & 3D models? duke54 2 5 yearsBryn (133): Duke, we can do that for you. PM me if you want to talk . The answer to your question is longer than most of the threads in this forum.
Is this a users forum Tim 3 6 yearsccctucker (154): I agree that it could be both: 1) a place for potential users to get questions answered (maybe a newbie only thread that has a patient teacher type moderator) 2) the rest are restricted to experience users to post. The newbies could read to get an understanding, but can't just jump in and ruin the flow of the conversation with a question on how to plug it in...😄
How is the floor plan created? Coach 5 6 yearsGarySnyder (1816): Coach Why haven't you just visited the Matterport website as all of the questions you have asked are details there except for the scan time for the 3000 sq ft question. You've also ask that in another thread, why not keep the same thread going here and ask the question.
Can the camera produce stills? Coach 2 6 yearsccctucker (154): Yes, but it's more of a screen capture than a traditional still only. But it is an HDR image though
