Matterport New editing software11986

This new update for matterport editing is like 3 steps back. I swear the last few updates they have done for editing has been terrible. The measuring tool is so bad for measuring floor plans. you really should have the option to press enter and then enter again to start the next measurement instead of clicking with mouse. Now to edit the direction of the highlight reel you have to click on the pencil to have a pop up window, click on the direction, and then click done. Seriously that is 3 extras steps. Not to mention it is taking forever to save any spot for the highlight. I am typing this message in the middle of waiting for it to save. (reloaded 3 times now)

I can't wait for matterport to get a real team of software developers. I think the guys from flappy birds could do better.

....and yet, they continue to ignore the NUMBER ONE thing we have been screaming about since the inception of Matterport - an easy, reliable way to securely store all of our scan raw data off of our iPads. The "solutions" we have now are completely tech-barbaric and make me wonder if this is all a strategy by Matterport.

Yet, they continue to roll out these idiotic "features".......

Just my $0.02

...hey, but thanks, Matterport, for getting rid of that ergonomically idiotic toggle above the scan button that would often get activated by my fat fingers and cause me to inadvertently capture 3 or 4 360 views instead of the desired 3D scans. Thanks for that. Oh, and for poaching my customer base....thanks, thanks so much.

I have not used the highlight reel many times before but I am doing it now on my client's request.
Adding panos to the reel does not take much time, for me it is like 2-4 seconds top on the old I7 laptop. However I agree it is ridiculous that it cannot even remember direction settings(mine by default is set to Auto) and I have to switch to Right for every spot I add. And even more if you choose a wrong pan start position there is no way to correct it. You have to delete it and add it again.

BTW, anybody knows why Matterport ignores a zoom in a pano. I want to have a wide view for small places like bathrooms and walk in robs.. even bedrooms sometimes are so small that you need to zoom out to see most of it. I set a desired zoom before adding a pano and Matterport ignores it and set it to default value in the reel.

Personally I think the new updates have made the program better, especially the fat finger syndrome. I do not like the fact that you cannot select multiple images and transfer and create a new floor with them. I normally shoot a few (3) shots onto a new floor from the old floor and then move them to new floor in the app. It is cumbersome now.
