Hi All,

Got a "wish list" for Matterport Workshop?

I will start it off with:

✓ ability to upload nadir logo patch.

I will plan to forward the list to Matterport on 1 December 2019.

Best,

Dan

P.S. Some nadir logo patch examples created by WGAN Members by Tresdepro

I have some improvements on my list:

1) We are often creating Matterport teaser models, therefore the option to deactivate all scan positions would be great.

2) Download more than 100 Snapshots in one batch (we sometimes have 300 and more snapshots).

3) manual (face) blur tool

4) option to copy edits from one model to another

5) ceiling trim tool

That's it from my side. Thank you, Dan!

Custom room labels that show in auto complete.

Duplicate model with all edits.

Manual blur.

Manual exposure, color, etc...

Mask camera.

Global stop matterport auto generated pics.

Don’t move position when setting mattertags (I like to be at one central point and place several mattertags, used to work that way...)

Fix mattertags stem length selector. Pain in the ass to set accurately. A global default setting would be nice to.

Profiles for model details to auto fill fields like company, phone, etc...

Change color of floor nav circles.

I have some more:

- set 3D tour password in workshop
- upload and set custom tour image
- manually connect and set 360 views markers
- import external 360 tour images (eg drone images) in 360 views selection

+ 1 for a blur to be moved to the workshop instead of doing it in the capture app. And agree it should come as two options 1.Automatic 2.Manual
With manual blur it would be great if you can just select a scan or an area in the scan where blur should identify faces and blur them.

Or it can be just automatic blur everywhere with an option to remove specific blur when it has been applied wrongly.

1. Complete white label - MP name to be visible nowhere

2. Self hosting

These may not fit into "workshop" context precisely but wishes with MP tours nevertheless

1-Be able to add a new collaborator email with no direct link to shop a camera and capture application automatically sent by MP to him for introduction...
2-Mark a start point and ending point for automatic generate teaser.

a Big +1 for self hosting too. It is not just about hosting. If Matterport decides to allow us to self host we may get an access to all panoramas included in a tour. Imaging what you can do from there such a manipulating colors, adding or removing things including virtual staging.

+1 for self hosting also from my side.And we need the ability to modify and change the UI of a Matterport Tour.

Its boring me to see the same interface on every of these 2.000.000 tours around. A little bit more variation would help. GeoCV gave good examples.

stop/pause the scan rotation and be able to continue it (the rotation scan) could make you hide things more easyly

If Matterport wants to conquer the real estate market among others, a function that I think it should consider developing is the synchronized distance visit, such as the one offered by https://www.immoviewer.com with its Live session service and https://www.eyespy360.com with its EyeSpyLIVE ™ service.

The idea would be that we, Matterport customers, could create a user (our client) who had access to their routes and that the same activated the service synchronized distance visit for the routes that he deems appropriate.

Hi All,

This idea is from @fotoguy from this WGAN Forum discussion:

A QR Code auto-generated within Matterport Workshop.

add your own image(and it sides)for mattertags aspect will solves many problems. hide things, blur camera or anything. it will add direct story telling contents and open MP to the design market (where no one wants to have the same models)

Hi All,

In this WGAN Forum discussion, @Spencerlasky wishes that Matterport offered control over auto-generated videos, including:

1. which scenes
2. starting point
3. ending point

But this still gives us a tool, one of many to support clients and their marketing needs. Spencer


Perhaps if Matterport used the Highlights Reel to create the auto-generated videos, that would be a good start (particularly since you can now control):

1. which scenes
2. pan left or pan right
3. which transitions: Slideshow or Walkthrough

According to Matterport Support website:

"Our latest build of Matterport Workshop 3.0 provides new abilities that will ultimately allow you take more manual control of your Guided Tours using the Highlight Reel tool. From there, you can change the transition types that lead in to each Snapshot in your reel, and also set the camera to pan from left to right (or vice-versa). Reference the instructions below to learn how to utilize both of these new features."

Your thoughts?

In other words: We are not allowed to upload a staged 360 pano as part of the tour afterwards in Workshop?

1. Specific rotation per photo or no rotation at all per each photo.
2. Time spent on each stop point or again no time.
3. Basically turning this part of the edit tool to turn the walk thru into a great final walk thru or video.

Or am I missing this.

Yes I know I can create individual pdf pages from the png files. I would imagine Matterport would be keen to help its MSP to succeed. It is asinine that I need to go through the process of creating the pdf myself. A company that was able to create an AI cannot work out how to produce separate pdf's????

Apparently they need to go through an approval process to make this a "feature" This cramming of all the plans onto one page is a waste of electrons.




Another sore point is the fact that you cannot download 360 photos in bulk, unlike the standard photographs. A jpg is a jpg is a jpg.

I am very excited to see that the publish to google street view is up. But I learnt about this from a forum member. I was promised by Matterport that I would get an email as soon as it would be available, but they appear to have lost my email address. I still get bills on that address some how.

Please change your culture, I am always excited to take my camera out and scan a location, and show how cool the models are, and how they can improve businesses. The way you handle user requests and handle your business makes me feel sick to the stomach.

One more wish for Mattertags, they should work and should be visible from 360 photos. Now they are not and once you go to 360 all Mattertags just disappear.

Plus, we should be able to stick it to anything, not just where a mesh is.

Does the MatterPort player have a way to separate these stats? Or at least discount the stats for our views?

Maybe something similar to Google Analytics tags?

We need control over which room is featured in the auto-generated videos and animated GIF. I shot a $6.5M listing and the 'bonus' videos featured the laundry room (with a peek into the garage, oh boy!) Thank you, Matterport...




Obviously there is no human involved. If this is AI, we've got a problem, Houston.

Hi All,

The following is from this WGAN Forum discussion:

State of Matterport pay per view virtual tours

As I have been absence for quite a while due to other projects I wanted to know the current state for solutions to build pay per view virtual tour.

Ideally with a real paywall and access protection and not a just hidden URL solution like Matterport would allow. Or is something meanwhile possible via the SDK?

Thanks in advance.

How special?
1) it should be a start point of a narrow path to your real showcase room;
2) from this point you capture points one by one to the showcase room gate;
3) make sure the special point has the only path to the gate of the showcase room;
4) make sure you can't see the last point of the path (or the point at the gate of the room) from the specical start point;

2 Data processing on Matterport cloud normally
3 Set the special point to be start point of the showcase
4 Delete all the points on the path from start point to the showcase room gate, make the start point to be a single island, because from this point you can only go to the points that can be seen on the path but they were deleted and the all other points from the showcase room gate can't be seen(can't be seen means can't be access).
5 Set a Matttag at the start point that show the ticket link
6 Close "Doll View" and "Floorplan View" and "Snapshots" functions

When anyone enter the showcase, he will see the ticket link but he can't go anywhere because the path to the showcase gate was deleted.

Put everything in iframe of MP/embed page or other SDK platform.
And the SDK platform should have some code to accept a call from ticket link after payment and make a jump of your showcase to the real start point (the gate) of the showcase room.

Make a code controlled jump is easy in SDK. But difficult without it.
Any one with the showcase link only can't go anywhere but the single island.

It is easy to be done with Matterport SDK.
JuMP team don't have the access to the SDK but MP/embed can do that for sure.

"Doll View" and "Floorplan View" and "Snapshots" functions can be opened by SDK either.

BTW there is one leak for this methord:
If the user knows the parameter "&ss=#", that can make any point to be the start point of the showcase.
Maybe not many people know "&ss=#".

Thank you.
