Question of the Day: What does it mean that Matterport now has a new CEO? DanSmigrod 8 7 hoursVTLV (1354): We get a new CEO announced in other news sources and nothing from the company in my email this week. Not feeling very hopeful about this one.

Returns they're not getting after 5 years of investing from Camera and hosting fees.

Question of the Day: When do you use Matterport deep links? Example? DanSmigrod 2 28 daysHelloPado (88): Hi AlL- For a large indoor/outdoor space I used Mattertags with deep links to navigate between areas of the grounds. A necessity as there are 43 acres here. Each mt in the starting tour takes you to one of the many spaces and another mt leads back to the starting point.

Storing Camera between Shoots Matt19 2 1 month3dvrwalkthrough (37): Spending $250.00 to protect my $2,500 to $4,000.00 Camera is necessary. You will get caught in the rain eventually and humidity just about gives any software driven device a problem eventually.

Question of the Day: Got a tip for Beginners using WP3D Models? DanSmigrod 3 1 monthRichierichks (652): One of my favorite parts of WP3D is the "Generic Iframe" model base. I embed everything into them and use the iframes and shortcodes to place them in other places in my site or customer's sites. I use a lot of custom overlays on the GSV that I generate from the Matterport model and I am able to embed the iframe of it into WP3D. This gives a consistent look to all of my tours and I still get the SEO benefit of the traffic from my...

DanSmigrod 9 2 monthsMetroplex360 (8608): It may be good to prepare a case-study of management companies that use Matterport Technology for leasing and succeed more with online leasing and over the telephone leasing thanks to Matterport. These are companies that are utilizing the technology for sales rather than asking weird questions that do not make a difference in the use-case.

DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsDanSmigrod (16876): @Home3D Setting the tour to always in walkthrough mode sounds like a great idea to encourage engagement. We lean to providing the fullest experience possible.

Question of the Day: Do you charge a flat fee or recurring $$$ for GSV? DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsleonherbert (187): Flat fee, it is easier enough for a client to look up what Matterport charges and then in my eyes you look like a chump, since I am not adding a value added service past the scan, and I am not been charged by anyone to keep the tour up (YET)

Question of the Day: Will you place 360º Views in Matterport Workshop? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsHome3D (349): I haven't tried the new Workshop placement system, but thought I would chime in on the past beta for placing external 360's in the model. The idea is great, but it's clunky and I've abandoned using it so far, for a different reason. In the past you have had to elect to engage the "new version" of showcase in order to add 360's. My problem is that I vastly prefer the "walkthrough" mode of the old showcase over the new...

Question of the Day: How is Hurricane Florence Affecting You? DanSmigrod 6 3 monthsTosolini (2626): I think it’d be a positive move by MP to create a Hurricane Florence account and let MSP upload models donated to people affected by the flooding. Imagine how many insurance claims there will be that may benefit of a scan. I bet several MSP would be open to donate some time if they are not being hit by the fees

Question of the Day: Pricing Strategy for Matterport to Google Street View? DanSmigrod 3 3 monthsChemistrydoc (658): I love the pricing matrix that @Metroplex360 shared a while back on the forum and have pretty much incorporated that into my pricing. I think that one has to differentiate between clients that only want upload into GSV versus others for whom the hosting and use of the Matterport showcase will be also useful. Also, the price matrix that I mentioned needs to be upwards adjusted in light of Matterport's upcoming charging for the conversion and...
Question of the Day: Why not offer Google Street View for business too? DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsRichierichks (652): That is what I have been focusing my business on. I have had pretty good luck with offering the MP and GSV to businesses. I've gotten way more referrals from Google Trusted Photographer's website than Matterport. In fact, I don't believe I have ever gotten any referrals from Matterport in the year and a half that I have owned the camera.
Question of the Day: What did you do for the Labor Day Holiday Weekend? DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsJohnLoser (271): Saturday, I relaxed with my wife, had breakfast out and went shopping.

Question of the Day: What do you wish you had known before ... DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsclick360tours (61): The biggest opportunity right now I believe is GSV for business because of the increased real estate of adding internal images which benefits LOCAL SEO ranking for GMB listings and then there is the On-Page Session Time increase that will improve relevance for SEO.

Question of the Day: Which Tripod & Head do you use with Matterport Camera? DanSmigrod 7 5 monthsMetroplex360 (8608): @PeterMcCready I've been screwing the Matterport Camera on my tripod since September 2015 - and I've tried 2 quick releases and just didn't see the advantage. I still have to take the quick release off when I put my DSLR on as I have a different head for that anyway (or I use my Alta Vanguard Pro 2+ for my DSLR)... DLEV is well made, I just don't really see the point. I can level my camera with a bubble in the shoe by moving my legs around.
Question of the Day>what's holding you back from buying a Matterport today? DanSmigrod 5 5 monthsRPOceanic (208): Already have a camera. No regrets- would do it again. Knew there'd be bumps in the road as an early adopter. Hosting fees? Really feel they should be nominal- unlimited. Seems to me it serves everyone in this partnership to be incentivized with the vision the more data gathered the better. Particularly when reading between the lines... MP's apparent intent/endgame seems to be working toward monetizing the scans/data we are paying to host. Put...

Question of the Day: Other uses for Matterport Trim Tool? DanSmigrod 3 6 monthsMetroplex360 (8608): I only ever use it for outside scans. When inside, the window tool acts as a trim tool and there's rarely a reason to use it. As Liam points out, the trim tool CAN remove mesh on the inside of the model, and that can be accomplished by using two opposing trim markers. This may, however, create a hole in the tour which may result in a 'black hole' effect when moving through the affected area. Mileage may vary on this trick.
