Hi All,

This WGAN Forum discussion - a wish list for Matterport Capture App - is inspired by this post from this WGAN Forum discussion:

Insta360 One X & Matterport - Any timer?

Got a "wish list" item(s) for the Matterport Capture app? Please add it here.

Best,

Dan

Matterport has an upcoming webinar. GoToWebinar - From real estate to outdoor sports - learn how to create True 3D models using an Insta360 One X

A wishlist item however may be a Matterport AppleWatch companion app to initiate the scan.

Well, it would be nice to name 360º like the good old days. On that note, it would be nice to have a file on Matterport to use the same 360º scan in different models. I do the same properties a lot and it's not always sunny here on Maui. I would like to use the 360º over and over.

1) I would like to create 360 views from 3d scans

This would give me more flexibility in postproduction, e.g. if I decide to leave out some spaces that do not look good in dollhouse view or that have been scanned only for floorplan creation

2a) I would like to connect a drone camera to capture app to create an exterior 3D model comparable to dronedeploy

2b) I would like to create 360 views from 360 drone images

Thank you for this wish list post Dan. One thing that always bugs me is not having the ability to manually override a misplaced scan. It is so annoying when you get the green light to move the camera, so you set up your next shot, and then the previous scan comes in and for some reason the app aligned the scan in the wrong area! Now you have to move the camera back and try it again, possibly a couple times until it gets it right. I wish we could click on the misplaced scan and drag it to the relatively correct location and then tell the app to rerun its registration magic in that correct location. Ideally we could even do that while the camera is capturing the next scan.
Thank you!

Perhaps we could tap of the previous scan so “it” knows which scan to attach to. When I bought my Matterport camera in July 2014, that was necessary. Perhaps that could be an option for challenging spaces.

@DanSmigrod,

Clicking the adjacent scan for reference would be a great option too, and probably easier to program.

Thank you

I still do this from time to time myself if even wishful thinking. In the cellphone capture beta I had accidentally seen that you could move the scan position though the "Actual" movement of the position resulted in a crash of the app

Hopped on chat and he said that house was large, because it included 91 3D scans, and 11 360 scans. Shame on me for not knowing or realizing 360 scans count towards the total, EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE NOT INCLUDED IN THE TOTAL SCANS NUMBER AT THE TOP OF THE APP.

Dammit.

Why am I still using this?

@DanSmigrod Add "Feedback System" to the wish list for tour platforms, Matterport or ANY 360 tour platform.

Through our advertising, we are trying to limit, or even circumvent the hassle of physical showings by offering clients an immersive online experience, yet the current tour platforms do not provide a way for the viewer/buyer/renter to give valuable feedback.

Part of the backstory here, for those who do not use property showing services to facilitate buyer/tenant-agent showings, is that all showing services have an automated protocol for requesting feedback from the showing agent in multiple formats; canned or custom lists of questions, or essay style, or a combination of both, where the showing agent can inform the listing agent how the experience went, what they liked, or disliked about the property so that changes can be made in order to speed the sales process along.

Based on the above, if a physical showing never took place, but they walked through the property using one of our tours, we still need to know who the consumer is and what they thought of the property. In fact, this is the perfect time and opportunity to find out more about them as a buyer/tenant from a CRM perspective.
How else would this happen, unless the viewer is offered a way to do this, a message or other pop-up, before they click away from the tour?

If this issue is solved, I can assure you that more agents will be happy to adopt 3D/360 tours.

Great point! In the interim, here are examples of value-added platforms that mashup with Matterport and have lead generation / feedback forms:

Show & Tour

Wish a trim tool to block moves/passage

I sometimes use the window trim tool to block passages(in the case with stairs that I only want to take at a certain place for example) It works but it produces a strange effect when you go along it (because of the mesh created).
As you can't go through walls, i bet that Cortex could understand a trim tool that allows you to block a passage (same as the window tools but with no mesh created).

Hi Matterport


Please please please tell me why you put the 3D/360 button so close to the scan button in capture app

I couldn’t tell you the amount of time I have accidentally hit it and then scanned on 2-3 sometimes 5-6 shots just to realise I have inadvertently changed to 360 mode and therefore had to go back and rescan all the same points

The noise is even the same as in 3D mode so that doesn’t alert you. If you are like me and are replying to emails and making calls while scanning properties it’s easy to just assume the scans are aligning

Please in your next update can you move the 360/3D button away from the scan button or at the very least change the sound when a 360 transfers rather than a 3D scam

Thanks in advance


Please see this WGAN Forum discussion for more:

Ahhhhh! 3D/360 button on Matterport capture app

I am asking because @3dblickwinkel is trying to trouble-shoot what is causing a scanning problem with his Matterport Pro2 3D Camera and Leica BLK360 camera/scanner.

If he can determine that he does not have the current Matterport Capture App, this would rule out problems that some WGAN Forum Members are reporting:

Question of the Day: Updated Matterport Capture App causing Pro2 Crashing?

Thanks,

Dan

Add a screen in the Matterport Capture App that shows the app version number. This will be helpful trouble-shooting when there is a new app release and a bug is reported.

I didn´t use the system on Thursday and Monday evening German time I stopped using it. Yesterday morning German time I started to continue scanning the tour from Monday and an update appears, something with Cortex and if I wouldn´t update some functions wouldn´t work anymore. After that "map updating" appears and after some time I could see the tour and scan. BLK scans and after doing that "alignment" appears for sometime before the app crashes. In between you could see once that app is working (color of the white circles round the scanpoints comes in motion for a second). And as written before and trying a lot of things for hours nothing has changed.
Today I tried again. Unfortunately the same and no reaction from MP support.

I´m very astonished reading hundreds of comments in the net from colleagues and no statement from MP.

Obviously there must be a big issue and I don´t know how to make my customer feel comfortable.

I´m in the same distress as yesterday and only have two days left to finish the job because the campingsite will open after corona lockdown.

It is unbelievable.

A cloud hosted backup and restore that is an Apple like experience!

I am now trying to restore a job back on to the iPad.

I reversed the process and dragged the particular job file back from desktop to its own job folder and it looks like everything is back on the iPad. The file looks no different than the other ones that are there and yet the particular model does not show up in the Capture app.

I figure I must be doing something wrong.

Has anyone done a file restore using iExplorer?
