Pro3 Issue in cold: motor can't move & noisy: Have you had this issue? GETMYVR 3 3 monthsGETMYVR (1892): @MatterFix thanks! It's not mine, just sent to me for this 3 day job. My counterpart for this gig has not experienced these issues with his personal Pro3, so I think it's just been heavily used.
Matterport Does Not & May Not Support Leica BLK360 2nd Generation Scanner DanSmigrod 1 7 monthsDanSmigrod (30108): Matterport Does Not & May Not Support Leica BLK360 2nd Generation Scanner Hi All, I received an email from Matterport today (7 November 2023) in response to my question about if/when Matterport will support the Leica BLK360 2nd Generation Scanner: === Saw you had a question regarding support of Leica BLK360 (2nd gen) We will not be supporting this scanner at this time, and are uncertain as to when we will work to support...
Realsee Galois - first full demo - by Nick Powell Home3D 4 7 monthsHome3D (3779): My understanding is that self-hosting is possible. Need to learn more. Dan? You want to get Realsee directly on WGAN video? I presume a URL is the end link, just as for all tours. Direct integration with Redfin and others is, I imagine, a long way off. But any URL can be linked to an MLS or aggregation site. I do it with 3DVista regularly.

Lighting Recommendations for Matterport Pro2/Pro3 and Ricoh THETA Z1? manog 3 1 yearron0987 (2860): @manog for the Ricoh Theta Z1 I like the Bushman Halo 360 light. It comes with dual threaded offset to allow access to camera charging port. The light itself also has the built in battery with the capability to charge your Z1 extending the time you can shot since the Z1 has a short battery life. The only down side is your adding weight to the top of the stand near the camera making it top heavy. The light output is adjustable.

How to do a 360 virtual tour video of a Zip line? Camera? Tips? DiogoCosta38 2 1 yearSdoughtie (337): Interesting problem. I posted something and deleted it. I really need to think about it a little more. Is the client wanting 360 VR or stereo?
Picking right cameras? sebad90 19 1 yearMeshImages (2730): Yes, you are probably right. iPad is much easier to handle in the beginning - especially when precisely positioning Matterport markers. You have a good setup, go for it, maybe put the DSLR inside if you can later cancel it.

Pricing Question: How to charge for Vacation Rental Photography? GETMYVR 2 2 yearsMeidansha (583): Not sure about vacation rentals in particular but for case study houses for a building company I was told the houses are used for ten to 13 years so I charged the equivalent of 100 dollars a year up front and did a job equivalent to the price. I give them statistics every month and updates on how they can use SDKs to improve their viewing experience. They’re a big company but they don’t have time to be following changes on Matterport so...

I agree with @lilnitsch about over scanning is good (but hide scans that are not needed for the walk through experience).

Do you charge the same for any Matterport camera? GETMYVR 5 2 yearsGETMYVR (1892): Thanks for the replies. With a Theta you have to disappear from the scene completely instead of follow behind with the Pro 2. Not sure how much time that really saves. And with 95% of listing still without a 360 or 3D virtual tour perhaps the price point is still a little hefty for some agents despite historically highest commissions ever. I think what is prudent is offer two versions of the Matterport tour, standard and Premium. I would...

It's official....the Pro1 is better at alignment than Pro2 pixelray 5 2 yearsGETMYVR (1892): @pixelray I began to notice ghost scans arbitrarily placed on the model in the app, when I've decided to delete scans! The only other real glitch I see is the Matterport app can only handle about a thousand scans per model. So I hope matterport gets working on that, I'm pretty sure investors are scoping out these forums.

Ricoh Theta Z1 vs Theta X for virtual tour business? linas2569 7 2 yearsWingman (4191): 5.7K video is not that great. We are talking about 360 videos with 2 to 1 proportion that has a field of view of 360 x 180 degree so you need to compare it with a normal video and it is half of its resolution. Probably even more than half as it is just one side with 180 FOV both vertically and horizontally. So I would say 5.7K in 360 is equivalent of 1440P for a flat video with something like 25-50mm focal length.
What do you think about this space? kimhyunho 9 2 yearskimhyunho (23): @MeshImages Thank you very much for your kind explanation. krpano, cms4vr is quite overwhelming for light users like me. It'll be easier someday, right? I hope my boss will wait until then. haha : )
It seems not all Pro2s are the same?! Wingman 20 3 yearsWingman (4191): I have tested my new camera on a job and I can confirm transfer speed is fast as long as you come close to a camera. It is not affected by any reasonable distance created during scanning. Matterport have replied they will let me know what is wrong with my previous camera.
Does the Matterport Pro2 3D Camera need to be Calibrated? jpierce360 5 3 yearsMatterFix (390): @VirtusRealis 0.25% is very good! And I definitely agree with your comments about protecting the camera from bumps or impacts...for normal MP scanning and creating models, some impacts won't affect the model it produces but if your doing AEC work you should always handle the camera with care and verify your models with field laser measurements....a minor impact to the camera can seriously affect the AEC measurements.
Giraffe360 Debut in San Diego November 12-15, 2021 AndrewCongleton 11 3 yearslilnitsch (5457): @ThinkLab I might agree with you if this was indeed a superior product. However, the two tours I have seen are “ok” at best & not much better than a 360 tour. I am not saying this isn’t a product for someone it is just not a product for me. And I do not see a lot of adoption for this with agents as I had worked in-house with an 800 agent group so, I have spent some real time with agents in the trenches

URGENT: I get broken diagonal lines win my scans MolinaPhoto 5 3 yearsDanSmigrod (30108): Excellent solutions! I would add to that, if you need to order floor plans from Matterport, duplicate the model that includes Ricoh Theta Z1 "scans" and then delete the Ricoh Theta Z1 shot "scans" (because Matterport will not create floor plans that include 360s shot with a 360 1-click camera.

It seems like all these 360 cameras have a particular niche. I haven't found one that does it all. Perhaps it's just their "master plan" to make us buy several of them:). For me as primary a Real Estate photographer shooting stills as my main offering the 360's as well as Drone work are an "Add On". A bit of background: I can shoot...
Any idea how this tripod is remote controlled (for Theta Z1)? ArchimedStudio 10 4 yearsArchimedStudio (708): @Fmarta I was also thinking about this avenue. Can you share photos of your setup? It's not so much to create a Matterport tour while I stay seated on the couch sipping margarita and controlling the vacuum remotely. It's more to create a 360 video walkthrough. What's the top speed and are the wheels big enough to move around in an uneven concrete warehouse (for example)? Thanks!
EOS R5 vs R6 vs Sony A7S III. Which camera, and why ? ChuckJ 7 4 yearsHome3D (3779): I’ve been shooting HDR with the Sony A7Sii for over three years. It was my first still camera with a digital viewfinder and on this issue, I will NEVER go back to an optical one. The usefulness of focus peaking and zebra improve accuracy and accelerate my shooting dramatically. Many of my clients hire me to shoot HDR stills, a 3D or 360° virtual tour, AND a production video all in a single visit. I arrive with six different cameras. Add...

This is a trade, not a get rich quick scheme breaking into a new industry. So many real estate agents get a license and think they'll make large sums of cash. 80% of them make less than $20,000 a year. Agents get in, sell a friend or family members home, starve and drop out to a part time job and rarely get back in. Happening a ton with 360 photographers as well. Ebay always has...

Photographer dipping my toes into 3D/360. Am I on the right track? condra 12 4 yearsGETMYVR (1892): I would suggest use the iPhone for making phone calls, texts, taking selfies, but if you're looking to do matterport, you want to use the best camera possible to get the best results. Theta Z1 at the minimum. I tried an iPhone and an iPad on a sample matterport tour, and at the same time I connected a Z1 and I also did a portion of the house with a pro 2 3D to see how they work together. Worst tour ever produced.
What is the best camera/system for producing a 360 tour of a college campus HunsletRiviera 1 4 yearsHunsletRiviera (7): Hello WGAN I'm looking for some advice, I am the proud owner and operator of a Matterport Pro 2, and have recently received an enquiry about creating a virtual tour of a college campus here in the UK. The campus is rather large, sparse grounds with many different faculty buildings. I know that Matterport struggles to cope over a certain amount of scans, and I 100% believe that this campus is too large for Matterport to handle in a single...
How Asteroom got me to switch from Matterport. jwaltphotography 16 4 yearsjwaltphotography (55): I have not experienced this.

Ricoh Theta Z1 versus Matterport Pro2 3D Camera for Outdoor scans? Paulo 4 4 yearsWingman (4191): I cannot comment on using a Z1 with Matterport. I have just never seen any reason to do it since I have a Pro2. As for using it to capture a 360 I believe the further you are from objects the more chance you have to make a 360 without any stitching errors. It is better to stay at least 50cm away from any object and that distance applies to a Pro2 as well.

Are Labpano Pilot One Tours Live Yet? remaxvictory 6 4 yearsremaxvictory (41): Yeah, it is an awful lot of scans. I also don't like that you can't just click the direction that you want to go. You have to click on the actual scan points.

You have to be a very advanced photographer or settle for the (limiting) auto modes provided. VERY difficult to implement an HDR workflow with the camera.

Scan Spots all over FloorPlan. Not Happy. BobbyG 10 4 yearsHomePlanNZ (251): Though it's a big investment - the best solution is to buy or get a hire arrangement in place for a Leica BLK360. We use this for outdoor and big jobs. It's photographic quality is lower but you can do it in big jumps; or just use it sparsely to sort the black spots you're experiencing. Example: Sorry I know it's big money, but it is a suggestion :)

It will handle the cold also, just confirm with your Leica agent in your area and ask them for sale data or examples they can supply you. Work flow might be a little longer but the end results and data is worth it. It also gives you much wider coverage than Matterport so you can do less scans and move further between points,...

As an alternative, I was going to try and scan a Smart car as a comparison! Not sure the Matterport camera would even fit. Another reason is that it allows me to experiment with Mattertags. This...

Help Understanding Matterport Bad Scan BobbyG 12 7 yearsJonJ (1760): @BobbyG, I would scan the core and then incrementally outward from each of the hallways so that they end up connecting at each of the corners. If you can get the center to line up, you should get better results. The reason your minimap has a misalignment is due to the aggregation of minor errors as you scanned around the building. By the time you work your way around the large space, the compounding error is too large to resolve. Also, you...

The third thing that makes this possible is the fact that all of the surfaces available are solid. This allows for sufficient structures to allow for correlation of scan points. Also important to note is the fact that the dollhouse view is very incomplete....

If you do not use Matterport Capture app daily, before your next job, pair your iPad with the Matterport Camera for 30 minutes. 2. Restart the Camera and iPad. 3. See if a new Firmware update is ready Note: As much as I would like the benefits of a...

Our agreement with Matterport only enables us to distribute cameras within the UK and not into Europe. Unfortunately we are unable to ship cameras to France.
Matterport Case George_WALKINTOUR 7 7 yearsGeorge_WALKINTOUR (85): Yes, like what JonJ said, like an Otterbox.

New Matterport Camera Coming Soon? DanSmigrod 18 8 yearsUserName (586): I was hoping InsideMaps allowed you to use your own capture camera. If they did, I could buy a hover camera and use it to capture 360 views of rooms and upload it all to InsideMaps. But, they say it only works with an iPhone sitting on their special tripod. That doesn't mean we couldn't come up with our own processing service that converted images taken from a floating hover camera into 360 pano tours the same way InsideMaps converts iPhone...

Why? Well, that's how 802.11x standards are written. The bandwidth is limited, the more members, the slow it gets. What to do? restart the camera to give it another run of the...
Have You Ever Been Caught? BrianM 7 9 yearsmikeE (34): Thanks Bill! Very kind of you.
Distortion? GusArb 7 9 yearsGarySnyder (2059): Thanks Dan @Queen_City_3D what Dan is referring to is the centre line of the camera during one of its rotation stops. Just look where the camera is pointing and you can easily get a feeling where the center line of the camera will fall and move the camera accordingly so the next stop to the right falls on the center the item you’re trying to capture. It’s also better if you can avoid it not to be so close to certain objects. Think of it...

Matterport and Lighting KenBanks 8 9 yearsGarySnyder (2059): Hi Cyrus I've still not had a need for the lights as this was a very special case where I was supposed to shoot part of the VT up a very dark spiral stairs up to a tower but as I said it didn't happen. I'd be very interested in seeing what you design and produce as I have to admit I'm intrigued by your suggestion of printing a case for the camera. Best regards Gary
Why do all the threads with matterport tradetickers 7 9 yearstradetickers (10): Yes the main question is "why are so many selling?". Has me concerned. The learning curve on this is nil and once they see how much they'r laying out to get these done they realize they could just buy their own. No skill involved means this is not going to stay lucrative.

Is the Matterport Camera capable of high res Metroplex360 2 9 yearsMaxx90 (7): I shoot a lot of DSLR myself, however I am shooting bracketed which I then do post production on. Although my cameras do it internally it is never as good as the manual way, so my guess is that it is the same with the Matterport camera. On a high note however the end product looks much better on mobile devices which is what is predominately used these days.

Foremost, How is it that you have to turn to a forum to resolve this unresolved problem. How is it that the company that sold you the $4500 camera and the hefty processing and monthly fees hasnt jumped to attention to sort it out? And my even bigger concern is how could a well established user like you with...

A case for the Matterport Pro 3D Camera DigitalImageries 9 9 yearsMaria (106): I use a Nanuk case which is made in Canada. It's very similar to the Pelican case I was issued but I actually like it better than the pelican. I like their latches and minor features not present in the Pelican I use such as the handle snaps in the down position keeping it from potentially being broken (Not likely with these cases, but possible). The resin is supposedly stronger allowing a lighter case, but I have no way of verifying that. The...
transfer taking a long time Jamie 21 9 yearsJamie (2013): Yes I'm still on ipad air 1. Will be interesting if you had both air 1 and 2 and tried to duplicate the same error. I had issues before but put it down to the 1st gen camera. I tried the same area with a 2nd Gen and an air 2 and it worked. If I had time I would have used the air 1 on gen 2 and vice versa to try and isolate the issue
Matterport Tips and Tricks for a Newbie?? usruss 3 9 yearspixelray (1040): Keep the scans closer vs further away. Take your time. Use your level to keep camera perfect. The goal should be to not have a scan that won't align. Read up on this site. It has helped tremendously. Oh and practice on your own house with several scans of it. Good luck!

Next Version Of Camera? seanminor 8 9 yearssvensson (10): Yes, just confirmed with glenn, no new version of matterport camera will be released.

Matterport versus iGuide (Which and Why) DanSmigrod 5 9 yearsDoyleRealtor (512): I've talked to many folks at Matterport, the owner of Toursler, and just recently Kevin with iGuide. All 3 companies have solid products, and are continuing to innovate in a new market category for real estate which is very exciting. Ultimately it comes down to 1) availability in your market place, and 2) whether or not the end user wants to do the scanning themselves or higher it out to a professional. From what I've seen with Toursler &...

Capture at Night in the C-O-L-D DanSmigrod 10 9 yearsBredeErickson (4): @DanSmigrod Temps were in the 20's and falling as I recall, it was pretty late in the day when i got to the back yard. I didn't experience any real problems with alignment but i worked the perimeter against the fence so that i had some structure for the Matterport to latch on to. I was outside for probably 30 minutes.

What if? LeeBlackston 6 9 yearsJamie (2013): Vincent No link, I was just told by one o the matterport guys that floored in new York had done it. I saw maybe 18 months ago that they had partnered up (a presentation they did together) I looked at floored to clean up the scans when it was the mesh only view. Recent matterport users might not remember that
Materport links saulstokes 2 9 yearsJohnBecker (388): Saul, Just this week, we got a way to define the starting point where a user enters a model. While the functionality you're talking about is theoretically possible, it doesn't exist just yet. The approach that occurs to me is to make the user aware of the dollhouse view, and how powerful it can be in navigating to different locations in the model.
