I am over maxed on scans for this month and wanted to try out my Theta with Matterport.

I had asked a question in another group as to whether or not scans with Ricoh shots will be charged the normal hosting fee as I test the product using the Beta App.

Response:
"Please go ahead and upload. Scans that contain at least 1 Theta/Insta360 scan do not get charged processing fees." - Dee Johnson

I love Dee and her ability to help us.

@VTLV I must confess, when I heard about the Theta/Insta360 ONE X announcement I genuinely winced at the prospect of the quality of the output/experience but...wow...it's time to dust mine down!

Much respect for Dee, she's saved the day for me countless times...

@PeterMcCready - Dust that sucker off and have some fun with it

@3dVuz - Yes, the entire home. No Matterport Camera mixed in with it.

Total Shoot time was 31 minutes.

56 scans total.

83 scans (had about 6 un-alignemnts, 2 mis-alignments in wrong places)

1,531 Sq ft Townhouse + backyard & garage (didn't measure).

I re-shot parts of the living room and hallway after a mis alignment and wanting doors to not be blocked in a hallway.

Thought I shot bathroom upstairs as fast as things were going. No time to trim during shoot, it goes so fast. Did pause for mirrors (I hate those things + spray)

@VTLV This is great! 31 mins is awesome.

I enjoy using the Theta V, however, I struggle at times with the fact I cant walk around it to remove myself from the shot. Sometimes the only place to hide is further then the connection will allow. An example would be a large restaurant with a open floor plan.

Has anyone found a way around this? Extender for the range?

I find this being a problem often with Zillow 3D shoots. I also see the distance for alignment to be closer to 5’ bs 8’ using the Theta V for Matterport shoots.

I found a cell phone case on GoFundMe for about $30 I want to test out for a stronger WiFi range. I’ll let you know if I can make time to buy it and report back.

In the meantime there is a Zillow 3D discussion on here I can later reference talking about ways to keep the signal alive at further distances when shooting Zillow 3D that can work with the Theta V and an iPhone.

This is a great point that I've made considering reduced capture time -- while the Theta V is super fast, one still has to run and hide Pro-2 has a 20 second capture time (not including alignment) -- and you can stand behind it. Theta V has an instant capture time, but how fast are you at hiding?

If you cannot solve the problem of hiding (if it is really impossible) you can hide below or take 2 photos at different directions and edit with Hugin and any editor, but I am not sure if we will be able to upload images from other sources than the camera using the new version of Matterport.
