Matterport versus Metareal Stage - Comparison article ysabelc 11 1 dayysabelc (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.
EyeSpy360 versus 3DVista? simbany1 9 7 dayssimbany1 (117): Thanks everyone! Def gonna to try it out. I love that there are so many configurations and options that you can use or don't have to. I feel for me, knowing that this business is going to take off, I'd like to be less reliant on a third party and be able to do mostly everything in-house. The hope is that the tech isn't too complex for that plan!
Used GeoCV Kit for Sale in WGAN Private Group for Buying/Selling Used Gear DanSmigrod 3 9 daysDanSmigrod (22040): Hi All, Another GeoCV Kit was listed for sale today (30 June 2020) in the WGAN Private group: Buy-Sell Used Matterport Cameras (and related) Dan
Asteroom versus Matterport DanSmigrod 10 11 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
Is there a difference between These Ricoh Theta Z1 cameras? JonPaul 3 20 daysJonPaul (10): pretty sure they are all gone.
Leica BLK360 versus RTC360 for 150,000 Sq Ft exterior space? UTAG_3D_VISION 8 22 daysdave3d (28): Thanks Doug, If pricing is anywhere close makes perfect sense if you have the availability - and it isn't Matterport. We did the BLK to also use for Matterport. It may lose a lot of time compared to the RTC but saves a lot over the Pro2. Thanks for the insight.
Bad Quality pictures with Insta 360 One X Pedrotex69 8 23 daysandreabortolot (181): Hi Pedro! I own a Insta360R and had the same problem but then I discovered a software which is very useful when there is noise on a pic. Its name is I'd warmly suggest it.. it's only $69 for full version. I am also using the video plugin for Davinci REsolve that remove noise from 360 videos. Let me know if that works! Força POrtugal!
Who has the best Support/Service and why? PeterDornfeld 1 24 daysPeterDornfeld (4): Hi All, pleased to e-meet you, I noticed that many 360 tour provider are similar from the software. Before deciding which provider I'll be chosing, I try to figure out which of the following 3 has the best service/support and why - Matterport, Nodalview, Eyespy360 For me service is a very important point as I need to rely on the company's support if something isnt working properly or best practices leave open questions. Thanks for...

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.
Comparing Imagine Quality: Matterport Pro2 3D Camera versus Ricoh Theta Z1 DanSmigrod 3 28 daysWingman (1309): May be this thread. There are also tours from Insta360 OneX and Pro1 clickable text
PTGUI or PTGUI Pro? homefinders3d 3 1 monthron0987 (1369): @homefinders3d I also use Ptgui Pro I have found it easy to use, support when needed great and as @Gladsmuir said the developer updating software regularly and its updates are streamlined and easy. I found end product great.
Video>Comparing Matterport Camera Options: Pro2 Versus, 360 Cameras, BLK360 DanSmigrod 6 1 monthHomePlanNZ (207): Just a follow up observation - I was actually relieved to see Matterport issuing this a few weeks back. They have been so 'iPhone' recently, coupled with their Support/resourcing issues and the fading of the MSP programme, that those who operate with the higher end equipment and provide 3D services to others have been getting very, very nervous about where Matterport is heading. I recall seeing a note a while back (can't remember where - email...
Anyone Used the Qoocam 8k for Tours? homefinders3d 10 1 monthhomefinders3d (191): I've watched several videos on the Qoocam 8k with polar opposite findings lol. Mine should be here in the next hour. I will send it back if the images are not sharp. Kind of wish I kept my Insta360 One X.
Video: REmedium 3D vs Matterport: Have you heard of REmedium3D? fotoguy 8 1 monthvirtualpro (49): We too are doing the same enhance extracted images and branded floorplans
I had to expand on the previous, so here is Matterport Capture Compare 2.0! RichardStanton 9 1 monthahojman (144): Thanks for your answer!
Insta360 One X & Ricoh Theta Z1: Wifi Range Issue - Easy Solution 😩 pguerreiro 4 2 monthsEladitems (36): Im having these issues when using the matterport camera. But with the Z1 it is just amazing
Make 3D virtual tours using any camera you want - Metareal Stage ysabelc 15 2 monthsysabelc (135): @hometakes As indicated in our FB group name, it's the "Metareal Stage Users Group", so we only let verified users join the group. So if you haven't signed up yet, we can't let you join. Otherwise we get too many spam accounts joining, which isn't good for anyone. We believe this verification is important to keep the quality of discussion in the group high. Signing up to Stage is free anyway, so it's not really a barrier to...
Video: Best Virtual Tour Camera 2020 (11 360 cameras + DSLR compared) DanSmigrod 2 2 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): Hi All, As you do your research, keep in mind that if you want to take Matterport for a spin, you will need either: ✓ Matterport Pro 3D Camera (Pro1, Pro2, Lite) ✓ Ricoh Theta V or Ricoh Theta Z1 ✓ Insta360 One X ✓ Leica BLK360 Best, Dan P.S. Question of the Day: Is there a shortage of 3D/360 Cameras?
Explaining the difference between a virtual tour and a slide show jacobpmac 9 2 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): Hi All, And some - like - call "it" a VR Tour! That's from the discussion: ✓ Publish Matterport to Partners ( is working. is not) This "it" conversation could make your head spin! :cool: Dan
Matterport Capture App Handheld>iPad Pro 2020 (12.9") versus iPhone Pro Max DanSmigrod 4 2 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): Just because the stitching is a mess? That's a scary idea! Dan
new Matterport competitor jayrtfm 10 2 monthsMeshImages (947): @Kumar this is like Matterport started with the early MP Pro1. Imagine Rescan with a clean, perfectly structured and textured 3-dimensional mesh in this wonderful player. Maybe you could also draw highres images from this (additionally with renderers like vray or octane). You could also stage these images with 3D assets. Of course we are talking about pro services here. In Berlin, Germany, I would scan 2 reference use cases with this...
Matterport vs Zillow 3D Tour GETMYVR 3 2 monthslilnitsch (1239): I shoot both Zillow & Matterport on everything I am shooting these days both with traditional real estate & the occasional FSBO’s. I partnered with an agent that will credit a FSBO back my marketing expenses should they decide to have him list their home
Testing Apple iPad Pro (2020) Wingman 28 2 monthsWingman (1309): It must be their version called Mark I. They do say it does not work in Sunlight but with Mark II they say it works. Anyway with GeoCV system you look better as it is modular. If GeoCV was around I believe they could make some updates to swap their Mark I with Mark II.
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!
Ricoh Theta Z1 versus Matterport Pro1 versus Pro2 rastas Jump to first page40Jump to last page 2 monthsHome3D (2259): From what I'm told, the answer is "Yes". Not ready yet, but one developer is working on it. Expectation is that it will improve measurement accuracy, though not necessarily to Matterport / GeoCV level of 99% because the Apple lidar has a big mesh. We shall see.
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
Matterport platform versus?? rastas 23 2 monthsGFHoge (159): @GETMYVR, I completely agree with you. My MLS just started offering the "Virtual Tour" free of charge to all agents (30,000)!! It is nothing more than the 2D photos moving back and forth. I find I have a lot of re-education to do here, but nothing beats a well done True Virtual Tour in 3D/360.
iPad Mini 5 and Madea works at Matterport Support briangreul 5 2 monthsbriangreul (363): @leonherbert Which mini did you have? I'm finding the Mini5 to be pretty snappy.
Best 360 camera for EyeSpy 360 rzphotoman 9 2 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): @rzphotoman ✓ WGAN List of 50+ 3D/360º Cameras for Virtual Tours If Matterport enabled the same workflow as Ricoh Theta Z1 and Insta360 One X for Labpano Pilot One / Labpano Pilot Era, these would be cameras for a Matterport Pro to consider (that also wanted the flexibility of using the camera for other 3D/360 virtual tour platforms/software. Dan
Is Matterport a Service Company or is Matterport a Software Company? DanSmigrod 6 3 monthsGETMYVR (388): A few weeks ago my best friend in LA told me to knock on every door in my neighborhood, then move on to the next neighborhood and then the next, but told me to scan every residence for free in exchange to giving the homeowner the raw file. He suggested I keep all this data on a server not connected to the internet. I own all the tours. I would tell the owner if you ever think about selling the house let me know we'll process your tour You don't...

Are Matterport, iGuide and Metareal 2D floor plans equal in accuracy? DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsbryanhscott (756): @DanSmigrod As I am sure you already know, notwithstanding the .5% to 2% accuracy range referenced so far in this string, other more manual floor plan apps (i.e., Cubi.Casa, among few others) allow you to use their app to create your floor plans, then in the dashboard of the app, make changes to dimensions by inputting actuals taken on site with a tape measure. Captur3d, also allows the service provider to submit dimension changes (based on...
Ricoh Theta Z1 🤜 versus 🤛 Nikon Z6 FX-Format Mirrorless Camera sherpa_media 5 3 monthsbryanhscott (756): @sherpa_media Well, that was an easy contest to judge. I'm with @pixelray. Ever tried Nodalview (for stills)? Right out of the camera, using their processing w/ occasional very minor correction, they might even beat your Z6 (and, save a bunch of time behind Photoshop or avoid the trip to Vietnam). Now, before I get jumped on, I am talking about most real estate agent clients, or property managers. For the the luxury properties, I'm...

DanSmigrod 1 3 monthsDanSmigrod (22040): Grab from LinkedIn Hi All, I could imagine that you are a real estate agent - or real estate photographer - that discovered the WGAN Forum while researching Matterport and 24/7 Open House Tours. So, where to begin? I suggest this excellent article, State of 3D Tour Technology, written by Alex Likholyot. Alex is a WGAN Member...
Which 360 camera to create Google Street View "blue lines"? DoraZ 9 3 monthsWingman (1309): They are offering a GPS module for the Pilot One but it depends where its GPS antenna is. If they have built it in the camera (not the module) and the module just connects to it through a port then it is going to be as accurate as in their Pilot Era. Otherwise with the antenna sitting in the module the body of the camera will block access to some satellites above it and only satelites on sides of the camera will be visible. But this is just my...
Using a Ricoh Theta Z1: Which 3D/360 Virtual Tour Hosting Platform is best? realeshots 9 3 monthsMeshImages (947): Yes, drone video clips. 3Dvista allows Pano automation comparable to Matterport walkthrough, but additionally with hotspots (the text Infos) in it.
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!!!
Matterport Virtual Tour for Senior Living: Assisted-Independent-Memory Care DanSmigrod 7 4 monthsbryanhscott (756): @Ghagendorf For me, inclusive of the usual 4-6 exterior 360's, I do one scan for every 40 square feet with Matterport. With EyeSpy360, I can get it done with one spherical photo for each 120 square feet. This does not translate to a tour that is 1/3 the cost of a Matterport Tour to the client, because certain parts of the workflow stay the same; drive-time, client interaction before and after, set-up, tear-down, office-time, etc., however the...

Yes. How ever you handle your pricing. The point here is that the EyeSpy360 Tours are super-fast to shoot, super-fast to create and are at such a low price point - one-time charge of $19.75 each - (plus, unlimited hosting at $9.99 monthly), that it can be priced to a client at an affordable price even for low-priced homes or apartments...

GSV Pricing>NCTech iSTAR Pulsar versus Insta360 Pro 2 and Labpano Pilot Era DanSmigrod 2 6 months3dblickwinkel (121): Hi Dan, thanks for the helpful comparison. Let's see what news about the Pilot One we hear. You know Germany is nearly white labeled with GSV following GDPR and older issues. Maybe that will change this year because Germany has overregulated compared to the EU.

Considering Ricoh Theta Z1, but, worried about battery! photosintheround 12 6 monthsWingman (1309): The image quality and their time shift plugin is worth it everything else does not. As for a monopod, I use a cheap one for less than $15. It is ok for inside and leveled surface but outside and on a slope it can be a problem. Since I am going to use a Pilot Era instead of a Z1 soon I have decided to get a better one and bought Neewer brand monopod for $42 from...

Cupix VS Matterport with Insta360 One X pguerreiro 6 8 monthsbryanhscott (756): @Home3D Quick clarification question: Have you done any re-touching to those Nodal Ninja, window/HDR images? If straight out of the camera, then through Nodal Ninja app processing, these are a really good start? The highs and mid-ranges are better than what comes out of my Sony A7SII. The shadows could use a quick pass through PhotoShop, but if it saves having to send them out for 3rd party re-touches, that means delivery of the assets at...

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.

[R&D] A comparison of GeoCV and Matterport 3D OBJ files Tosolini 8 11 monthsConvrts (219): Home3D - we just used the OBJ from a HD GeoCV tour to create a model and it was much the same. Compared to creating the model from Matterport tours as he's done previously my mate (the one who's better at this stuff than me!) said he found it so much easier to work with. Thanks for the comparison Tossolini, really great!
Question RE: Confirmation of whether its a Pro 1 or Pro 2 scan Queen_City_3D 16 11 monthsinmerso3D (21): Congratulations for solving the problem. I also believe that pixel counting works best as evidence. The "zoom cliks" I think serves to have a quick idea of the type of camera as a visitor of the tour without being a user of the workshop. This topic was interesting. Regards!

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...

Poor contrast and parallax error. To improve on the parallax error a two lens solution is used to minimize the nodal point offset, but it exacerbates the lighting contrast. Using a four or multi-lens solution improves the lighting contrast but exacerbates the nodal point offset. The main advantage of one-shot cameras is the speed and ease of use.

Demo and Discussion: GeoCV versus Matterport DanSmigrod 2 1 yearMetroplex360 (9281): GeoCV is a bit too bright and saturated. Matterport is a bit too dark and undersaturated. Nodal View is yellow and has an old fashioned UI with a strangely placed spinning dollhouse (how did that get there?) There's no perfect one, but between the two 3D tours -- with GeoCV, you have the option to download your imagery. If you wanted to, you could darken the tour a bit and desaturate it and end up with something pretty spot on.

That's actually very interesting. I wonder what we can do together that 200 homes out of 2000 would have a 3D tour, and then 2000 out of 2000? I doubt 3D tours solution price is the barrier, because on such a scale our unlimited plan should be ideal. Why realtors are not ordering more 3D tours? What we can do to change this?

Matterport Versus CUPIX: Publishing a 3D Tour to Google Street View DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @TrustedPhotoDC Another differentiator between CUPIX and Matterport is that you likely can successfully moderator a CUPIX-->Google Street View Tour with the links that YOU want. As @scott@cupix pointed out (above): A WGAN Member emailed me: "Matterport Spaces have always generated a list of 'nearest neighbors' that Showcase uses. Showcase will calculate the distance to each nearest neighbor upon entering a scan and use...

Ricoh Theta V Versus Ricoh Theta SC for CUPIX WalterE 8 2 yearsWalterE (52): UPDATE: I got the SC yesterday and shipped it back today!! I had a VERY hard time syncing the camera to the app. It was REALLY buggy. I have read reports of the app being really buggy to the SC since the updates came in for the V. I was also not that impressed with the image quality. I won't be using this on professional shoots, It is just a tester before I drop $2000 on a Nikon D610 & Sigma 8mm. As a new startup I really need to keep costs...

CUPIX Versus Matterport in AEC Space DanSmigrod 16 2 yearsDavidHothersall (55): @DanSmigrod As I suggested I doubt Matterport would be interested in releasing the higher level data assuming it exists. I wonder if Chris @Metroplex360 has done a comparison with a Matterport and a Leica BLK pointcloud of similar spaces to ascertain if there is more data in the BLK? I did a couple of quick tests with Cupix using some previously acquired data from a Matterport scan of what I considered a simple space but it was apparent from...
Quality vs Turnaround time fotoguy 5 2 yearsDanSmigrod (22040): @fotoguy My impression is that Matterport could speed up processing time by paying Amazon Cloud more money. If Matterport offered an option for one hour turnaround (if that is technically doable), how much would you pay extra when in a pinch (and could you charge your Clients more)? While requires a subscription: 1. All your credits roll-over each month: no penality 2. You can easily change and pick the number of...
Video: CUPIX: 10 Tips For BETTER Tours DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsHome3D (2259): Since Matterport measures its environment using infrared, it cannot do so in direct sunlight. Exteriors can only be scanned at dusk, dawn, or very cloudy weather. Cupid uses photogrammetry to divine spatial relationships so lighting doesn’t matter.

Solutions for Scanning Large Box Stores DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsleonvanzweel (515): @VTLV It is not about the tool. It is about using the right tool for a specific outcome. Most people's technological knowledge is rather limited. When the question comes up I explain that a small footprint is critical to capture 360 one-shot spherical images. I can use bigger cameras with multiple shots and stitch the images together, but that will cost them a lot more. The Theta/Cupix solution works well in a low-cost environment, where...

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.
photos: MP vs Nikon D810 HarlanHambright 10 3 yearsMetroplex360 (9281): @HarlanHambright While I cannot confirm this, I think that the Matterport Camera does do 5 exposures... just not sure on what the intervals are. Of course, I would suspect that the sensor is by no means comparable to a DSLR - but is quite capable in its own right. @NestorSarmiento It's one of those use-case things. For a Realtor who might not own a DSLR, the Matterport is a single device that can produce photos that are automatically HDR. ...

Finally a Potential Matterport Competitor! yoon2366 20 4 yearsUserName (586): @Mori I look forward to your thoughts on Daydream Street View. That's one reason I thought about buying a Daydream phone. Maybe you could compare moving around inside a Matterport VR model to using your controller to move around inside a Daydream home. From the Daydream Street View videos, it seems like you simply use the Daydream controller like a laser pointer to move around your environment. Here are some screenshots I took from inside...

With the pricing you shared it would not. It would be another $40. As I am in Canada add on about an 30% exchange to that pricing it becomes very expensive! I think I would have to charge more for that than I do for Matterport. I would like to offer the service along with the other service's I offer but I am not sure if I had to pay extra for the...
