Tip of the Day: Why Affiliate with a Pro that Does DSLR Shot Photography DanSmigrod 3 30 minutescoulee360 (82): Back in 2016 when I started my company, I was only DSLR. By the end of that year, I had a couple agents I work with lose their Matterport provider from the opposite side of the state. So in early 2017 I added Matterport to my services since no one was offering it in my area. Because of adding it and being the only one still, my business has tripled because I can offer both DSLR and Matterport plus Aerial. Still trying to educate other agents...

Why would you want to make friends with your Matterport competitors? DanSmigrod 5 3 monthsleonherbert (331): I have become a contractor for one of my competitors that has better market penetration than I have. I get business I would not have got otherwise. If I get a large contract they would also be able to assist me to complete it timeously. I will also get commision if I bring business to them that I would not want to take on myself.

Tip: How to create a 3D aerial fly-in with DroneDeploy and GeoCV DanSmigrod 7 3 monthsAntonYakubenko (595): I doubt it would work. As I described above, shooting for 3D model extraction from aerial images using photogrammetry requires many images all around the house taken with large overlap. I doubt externally sourced imagery would be sufficient. Moreover we require regular images, not 360 panos for 3D model extraction. 360 panos though could be used as Highlights and Fly-through in addition to 3D scan.
Nodalview: Photos via Wide Angle Lens or Extract Wide Angle View via 360º DanSmigrod 2 3 monthsizoneguy (281): Hello Dan, So I was looking at the pricing for NodalView. At the $59 per month - it says unlimited panos - what does that mean? Do they host them or do they send you a package so you can host them yourself? Can you extract the max res pano to use them in other applications? Thanks

Tips Needed: How can we eliminate "top scatter"? Networker 3 11 monthsProperty3dNZ (613): There is no way to remove it at this stage - any property you scan with high ceilings, skylights etc will generate something similar. This is not a new issue and I have been asking since June 25th, 2015 for there to be a fix with this (I can remember exactly where I was standing in a cafe I was scanning when MP called me and we discussed this in depth lol).

Re-processed model gets different floor plan sbl110 3 1 yearsbl110 (280): Hi Marcia, In my case, I was also trying to scan a very large two-level deck. That didn't go so well. I used 360 shots and added them in to the auto tour instead. Still, because I copied the model and re-submitted, it had to start from scratch. It took around 14 hours to process. Good thing the bulk of that was overnight. It's sad that after four years of operations, feedback and development you would think that they would at least have...

Tips on a Matterport Scan of a Large Space DanSmigrod 3 1 yearangusnorriss (395): Good post - i’m about embark on an epic scan. Been reading and learning. Anyone shot aircraft so you can see wing not just fuselage? I want an ‘all-angle-fly-in’ at height of approx 100ft. I need to see the whole plane. If I scan any lower and get no wings of the plane I just get a hotdog dollshouse with a cockpit!. The MSP edition of the 747. Think I need to hire a prop tower on wheels and strap a camera to it. Advice appreciated....
