I could imagine that others are thinking the same thing as a result of this week's news ...

Hi @joelE ...

1. The easiest way to export all the 360s from a Matterport tour is DOWNLOAD360

DOWNLOAD360 Service: Download all the 360ºs from Your Matterport 3D Tour

2. Here are some platforms to consider:

Anything to share about the tours that you want to move that would help the WGAN Community suggest which platform is right for you?

Best,

Dan

P.S. I could imagine that others will have thoughts on this topic ...

There is no affordable way out of Matterport.

MPEmbed is offering a batch pano extractor for 8k Panos. And there is other ways to export highres and obj, but only against the Matterport terms of service.

I recommend to continue hosting on the classic plan as long as you can. Charge everyone of your clients for hosting or turn these spaces off (and move these spaces to a new plan). Use the classic plan to show (some) of your work.

For the future I will only shoot Matterport if I need measurements and CAD or if the client wants the dollhouse. For longterm use cases I am moving the business to 3DVista. I am also evaluating Krpano plus CMS4VR with everpano or with the blender plugin as alternatives for self-hosted 3D tours with a dollhouse.

I cannot work with a company, that is permanently changing business rules. Matterports business model for Pro photography is incredibly expensive and it does not make sense to me. You cannot be sure, what you have to pay for hosting. It can be 2,50 up to something about 6,50 per space per month.

To make a business out of hosting with Matterport I would have to charge something between 10,00 and 20,00 per month. Especially if I have on-top services like MPEmbed, WP3D, Treedis or Google Analytics (with monsterinsights subscription) integrated into my hosting system. Which hospitality client wants to pay 200 per year for a hotel room?

I am seeing rumblings in the MOUG that Matterport may have reversed this decision without explanation ~ So, you may see if you are able to transfer currently

@lilnitsch It is JuMP time still before it was out of control and too late.
There would be 12 pcs "the 1st day of a month" within each year.
Who knows what news would be announced the next 1st day of a coming month? And can it be reversed or not?
But we all know what Matterport wants for sure from long time ago and it is never changed.
