Video: 5 Mistakes New Real Estate Photographers Make DanSmigrod 3 22 daysBuster6070 (92): Great tips. Really like the first one on getting above the bottom plain if the cabinets. However don't agree with the 2 wall approach of shooting rooms. I feel including just the edge of a third wall gives the room depth and perspective. Otherwise it looks like you went around shooting corners of a room and viewers have no idea what the real shape and size are. But great thing about our job is it's very subjective.

Is there a way to remove interior furnishings from a Matterport tour? rhelling 7 5 monthsWingman (4065): Re-scan should be cheaper and less time consuming because there are two way more important questions than who can clean photos. 1)How are you going to get all 360 from Matterport in its original 16K resolution as there are no legal or allowed by T&C methods available. You can only get 4K 360 from Matterport workshop capture feature and it is only manually capturing 360 for each scan. You can get 8K 360 photos if you publish them through...
Matterport Hosting (Need Advice): "indefinitely" Tour Host/Price Options? rhelling 18 5 monthsrhelling (101): SOLUTION: The client decided that 360 images were just as good as the virtual tour. We elected to go with Kuula ($144/yr - Unlimited Hosting). It requires a little more touch-up on our end to link the files together, but we're not scanning the whole space in detail like with Matterport. We're just scanning the center of main rooms, etc. Until Matterport can come up with a less expensing solution for maintaining virtual tours online, this...
Tip: (Video) How to Photoshop a 360 within a Matterport Tour for Android DanSmigrod 2 5 monthsBuster6070 (92): Both are new to me. I use my iPad to scan, but have a Pixel 6 Pro for a phone. Can't wait to try this on my next scan. This is an advantage iGUIDE has had over Matterport. I never understood why Matterport doesn't just add this feature. Still not something I would incorporate into my workflow to adjust white balance or fix minor details. Just too many steps. But for his example it's perfect. Matterport should make this an actual feature.

Charging Monthly Fees? rhelling 6 7 monthsrhelling (101): @Wingman I've never liked charging clients "extras" or monthly fees. Typically all my work is lump sum, fixed fee. I like the idea of offering (90) days free - then charging maybe a 6mo or 12mo option to extend hosting. (I might need to have a trigger that alerts me after ~85 days to inquire if they want to extend...)
Has anyone ever scanned a department/retail store? rhelling 4 7 monthsWingman (4065): I do not believe it is good idea for a shop to skip any isle or shelf if the purpose of a tour to drive more shoppers to an actual store. So even when a customer asks to update their old tour that has been captured with a dslr and is kind of hot spots jumping type where panos can be 5-10 meters away from each other I will always offer more detailed digital walkthrough with a Matterport. These two tours are not for big stores but they have...
Matterport Scanning Tips for Accuracy? Olegred 3 7 monthsWingman (4065): if it is just for a floor plan it depends on geometry of a space and how far a lidar that is being used can see. Some rooms say small bedrooms may need just one scan in the middle to capture all distances in x, y and z and one scan close to a doorway to capture it and provide enough points for registration for any space behind that doorway where you are going to do another scan. However even for bedrooms one scan may be not enough as for a built...
My Outdoor space with Ricoh THETA Z1 360; your thoughts? ImperialProperties 2 7 monthsron0987 (2403): @ImperialProperties overall it looks really good.

Who likes memes? Carson 2 8 monthsPhilly (83): I've checked into openhaus a few times, but it just kind of irks me that you claim simple pricing, no hidden fees, yet hide them behind a sales lead form. I'd love to think of ways to sell your product and apply them in the real world, but can't even do that without knowing how or what your charge. "Give us your info and we will tell you what we want you to pay" is not very enticing to me.

MSP with Pro3? 10 Thought-Starters for Charging for Scanning OUTDOOR Spaces DanSmigrod 2 11 monthsExpertise (1178): We are 98% residential. My thought right now is to keep our current pricing structure and just do an add-on for exterior scanning. Less than 1/4 acre, 1/4 acre to 1/2 acre, 1/2 acre to 1 acre. More than acre > quote. We currently offer 2 residential interior MP choices. 1- living space only, not including garage (only available as add-on to photo shoot) 2- all under roof spaces including garage and covered porches, free floorplan

How to make an Intro + voiceover in a Tour? rodrigocastillo 4 1 yearMeshImages (2478): @rodrigocastillo Hi Rodrigo, you can create this type of tour experience with 3DVista. If you want to use Matterport and add voice-over effects at certain positions (also during flythrough playbutton) you should have a look at MPEmbed. MPEmbed allows you to add actions (also action "play audio") to every panorama position. Treedis allows it too, but I prefer the MPEmbed editor with Matterport.

Matterport — Baby Steps into the Metaverse Carson 5 1 yearWingman (4065): None, because Matterport has not been created for 3D so they cannot built a good 3D model. You can hover use it to collect some 3D data and then manually clean & fix it. Sure it is faster than doing it from a scratch but still should cost a few 1000s to build a clean 3D model with realistic textures from a Matterport tour and Matterpack.

Customers asking for Matterport Customization Tools for branding? Carson 3 1 yearMeidansha (412): The tours I make tend to be sold through a big advertising firm. They prefer if the tours have the same pattern everytime, so the amount of customization I can do is limited.

But you still retain the copyright and the buyer does not have the rights to make and sell prints from the image. But he owns it.

Advice for scanning large spaces (Galleries, Museums etc) tinsoldier 9 3 yearsbriangreul (684): I generally will do at least one overlapping scan. Sometimes I'll do 2 or 3, just depends on how squirrely the space is. I will also sometimes force close the app and reboot the camera to make it start over with alignment. The alignment algorithm seems to be weighted to the last 3 to 5 scans. There are sometimes good reasons to jump around with large spaces, especially when coming around the core of a building.

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 3 yearsArchimedStudio (705): @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!
Demand for video tours 8643d 16 3 yearsHome3D (3398): I agree that "slideshow videos" which some older agents still refer to as 'virtual tours' are boring, redundant, and make an agent look WAY behind the times. Virtual tours, whether Matterport 3D, GeoCV 3D, NodalView, EyeSpy360 or 3DVista (and others) are what Buyers are looking for today. We talk about agents and brokers a lot because they pay for media (photos, videos, virtual tours) but let's never forget that the Customer in...

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.

I’m wondering what separates this tour from any other VR tour (ie, Kuula, etc.). Without the “dollhouse” presence it could be any number of tour providers. But, you make a good point which can’t be over stated. Whether it’s Asteroom, Kuula, Hippos for 360 (joke), one doesn’t need 20 scans to capture a few rooms.

My specific focus (right now) is REP. One thing about this area, specifically, is that agents are looking for a one stop shop. You may offer 360s but there...

My first Matterport 3D Tour: Feedback Please (used Z1 and V to compare) FabioLuna 7 3 yearsFabioLuna (7): thanks everyone for the feedback. I had the cameras at about 5 1/2 ft,I will definitely try using different heights depending on how tall the total space is. @castaway I have no idea how that mesh got created, I don't remember deleting any scan points and I didn't touch any of the windows. I was going to use the Z1 first and take advantage of the light, but the battery had drained because I forgot to turn off the camera after charging(...

How to do a Matterport scan of a church? Publish to GSV? Atriux 7 3 yearsbriangreul (684): I would also scan the space progressively as opposed to linearly if I did it again. The camera had alignment challenges with the pews. So just imagine a video game where you "discover" the map. The camera does the same thing. It seems like alignment challenges come in when you scan the perimeter and come back to fill in the details on large spaces. :)

Can't Place 360 Degree Pano, Basement Floor showing as part of Main PropertyGuyCLT 3 3 yearsleonherbert (902): @PropertyGuyCLT Yes you can only associate 360 with actual floors. Occasionally even though you may add a section as a floor by itself the AI will consider it as one part of the floor below or above it, and vice versa. As @bryanhscott said I would shoot a few shots on the basement floor. You can always switch of those pucks.
Race to the Bottom Pricing Wonderdawg 2 3 yearsExpertise (1178): I price in a way that I calculate works best for my business, and my employees. Period.

Then I'd like more agents to...
Scanning with multiple floors (no stairs) Wonderdawg 6 3 yearsWingman (4065): You can leave scans on steps in case somebody wants to walk them so elevator buttons will be just for those who do not want to go through steps. A deep link can be accessed if you press the "U" key on your keyboard. You will need to be in your tour opened in an internet browser, find the spot you want to create a deep link for and then press "U".
My Virtual Open House Hack GETMYVR 14 3 yearsWingman (4065): I have checked it today and I actually like it. I do not like their prices though in terms of how many active tours they provide. They seem to follow Matterport example limiting users to 25 tours for $90/month However the good thing for me that they show their price in AUD so it makes it cheaper than Matterport.

Creating new portal BULLA66 4 4 yearsbryanhscott (843): @BULLA66 Your portal concept sounds like another way for a listing agent, or perhaps an unrepresented owner/seller to advertise a listing.

This works if you, or someone on your team is licensed properly to...

Marking tours "private" Wonderdawg 2 4 yearsChemistrydoc (1680): It would be better if your account allows you to archive scans.

Tip: How to create a 3D aerial fly-in with DroneDeploy and GeoCV DanSmigrod 7 5 yearsAntonYakubenko (686): I doubt it would work.

Moreover we require regular images, not 360 panos for 3D model extraction. 360 panos though could be used as Highlights and Fly-through in addition to 3D scan.

A scan in the wrong place in the Capture app DanSmigrod 4 6 yearsRPOceanic (215): I've noticed this primarily when scanning outdoors w/ wide open spaces and uv interference and am always extra careful in checking scan location when doing so. In this instance- deleting the scan, lowering the tripod, moving closer to an exterior wall as well as decreasing distance between scans has resolved the issue.

Contacted by other company for scans 3SixtyNow 11 6 yearsExpertise (1178): We own a busy RE photo company. We have subcontracted out Matterport to a local guy for the past few months. We received a 20% discount, which was OK, but not great IMO. I think he was being a little greedy and shortsighted. I really wanted 30% or 35%. So... We have a new Matterport camera on order now. If he had given me 35% off we probably would have continued subcontracting.

Effect of Camera Height Richierichks 15 6 yearscraigsauer (1075): I'm just finding this thread as I'm searching for threads about verticals. I'm hoping to get some opinion from Matterport with regards to this issue now that they are really marketing the new camera as providing sufficiently high quality captures to use for real estate marketing stills. I'm pretty unconvinced, primarily because of the issue of the verticals in the Matterport images. Whenever I capture images (primarily for Guided Tours) I...

Preschool Marketing Dept. Concerns 3SixtyNow 3 6 yearsOpenHouseOptics (208): Statistics show that people go where they are familiar - if anything, them seeing it online will encourage a site visit AND increase enrollment because parents feel like they KNOW the environment. It's based on the same psychology we use when teaching fire safety or mass panic situations, look for the exits that are OPPOSITE of where you came in because people will go the way they are most familiar.

HDR BackUp Q Outside Matterport Services VTLV 3 6 yearsHarlanHambright (2018): 1. It is redundant to shoot RAW for HDR. Except for tweaking color temp, the HDR process is giving you as much dynamic range that RAW will, so shooting in-camera JPEG will alleviate a lot of storage issues. And you can color correct a jpeg just as easily. 2. After you have processed your HDR files, you can delete the original camera files. I have only on a few occasions re-processed old camera files and that was because early HDR was pretty...

Later doing similar shoots, I had stretched out cars on the road. In your instance, I like how the trees block off a good portion of the vehicles as the motor spins left to right. If the cars were to be in a direct line of site opposite the house is the worry point for me.

3D Showcase vs Direct Sunlight Conditions matthew 6 6 yearsJonJ (1760): I agree with Douglas with regards to how this scan is possible. By my estimation, the camera is set to a height of only 3 ft 6 inches. The scan positions are also very close together. 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.... - New interface... working? ArchimedStudio 6 6 yearsMetroplex360 (9429): MP2SQFT uses data that Matterport generated from the patched OBJ that is seen in showcase. The patched OBJ is the OBJ generated by the tour with areas that were missing data 'filled in'. JuMP uses the downloadable OBJ file without the patched data. That's why there's a discrepancy. I'm fairly confident that both JuMP and Matterport are calculating SQFT based on surface area of the OBJ files. If JuMP were to intercept the OBJ file used by...
More then 1 user Radie842 3 6 yearsMetroplex360 (9429): Just one note -- if you are providing collaborator access to clients also so that they can access Workshop for Mattertags, measurements, etc -- consider that your assistant's account name will show on the tours that you did not personally shoot. So you may want to choose your assistant's name in their account to be reflective of how you want their work to show.

Best Camera Height? Helen 5 7 yearsaristepp (58): I agree completely. I started shooting at the recommended 60 inches and I found that I shot a lot of ceiling space and that it was so high that my photos were oddly lobbed off at the bottom. 60 inches is just too high. 4.5 to 5 is right. No matter how high the ceiling is, you don't want lobbed off images and I sell a lot of packages, image and walk through.

Kickboxing gym Ramblinman 4 7 yearsTrustedPhotoDC (1108): The height of the ring should not matter. If the camera can see the top of the ring when scanning from the floor, you will just add additional geometry. If you were to add a second floor(i.e. the ring), Matterport would most likely combine in the stitching and publishing and give you back only one floor.

Limiting the Horizon Line of Matterport? srennick 3 7 yearsterrygrant (34): We install floor and wall tiles so have much the same issue sometimes. What I have done is to set the camera lower on the tripod, you have to experiment a little. This reduces the size of the blurred area on the floor and has the advantage of not seeing the camera in any mirrors. I guess if you set it very low then you would certainly be more focused on the floor. Good Luck. Terry

Questions from a prospect....advice? VRealExperience 2 7 yearsDSPhoto (112): You license the work to them based on how they plan on using it. More exposure and time means more money How you go about that is a whole other ball game. Other random thoughts: Remember to keep licensing fees seperate from production fees. Do not qoute a price that combines production with licensing. It makes it hard to place proper value to each. Avoid licensing for more 3 years at a time and list the licensing for a second year. Don't...

Example of Matterport specific Proposal Cabrahams 2 7 yearsDSPhoto (112): I don't have a proposal to offer you but part of my consideration for using Matterport is how to license the work. If you are creating content to be used in marketing you have to license the use of the work for a specific amount of time. If not you will eventually pay for the hosting of your clients scan out of your own pocket. As for what that licensing fee should be? Good question.

Matterport Cloud and File Downloads BDPelton 3 8 yearsron0987 (2403): Hi @BDPelton, the actual models are all hosted in the cloud/Matterport server and accessed thru their access portal and there is no way to download a finished model. You can download an OBJ file which can be used with other software programs but in that format are useless to show as a model. An OBJ is more of a 3D modeling format that can be converted to be used for again other programs. I hope that helps. Ron

We're expecting 12-18 inches of snow Saturday in NYC and wind gusts up to 55 mph. I am glad I flew in early for Inman...

Saving Scans to Free Up Space DaveFahrny 2 8 yearsContextImaging (10): I delete my models on my ipad once they are uploaded and are looking good online. I've had only one instance where I needed to go back and change a window on the 2nd floor balcony of this one listing because it cut down through to the first floor and made navigation in that area impossible. So I don't immediately delete once uploaded, but rather once I know the scan is rendered properly.
Crazy Shoot / Crazy Solution Metroplex360 4 8 yearsMetroplex360 (9429): Tosolini - Thanks for posting the link to that thread. I read it and it was VERY interesting. I will say, the method I used relied on being able to run around with the Matterport and look VERY silly. I imagine in the church that you shot, running outside and back in would have been IMPOSSIBLE.

Disable scans to improve load time? RobinLycka 8 8 yearsInvelop (121): @3SscannUK Next time you do a large model...don't delete scans from the ipad, just contact MP support and they'll transfer your model onto the larger back-end server. We just did a 19k sq ft house and it loads fine and stitched well with 300+ scans. Regardless, you did a great job on the above!

Short Survey for data gathering Tateo 18 8 yearsfranmts (181): Maybe it's a matter more of technology adoption timing and familiarity. What I mean by that is that any agent knows what to do with good quality photos and videos, 'cause they play nicely on MLS, any portal, people click and it plays. On the other hand we're selling mostly software, which isn't featured yet in Zillow and yet gives brokerages quite a hard time to embed on properties, there's lots of improvement on the back-end yet to be done......

Deactivating sweeps in current workshop MikeLjungbergTvedt 1 8 yearsMikeLjungbergTvedt (4): It seems we are unable to deactivate sweeps in the current workshop. We haven’t been able to produce models with the level change function either. Both functions have played a key role in our production method. We have just recaptured a mezzanine in a model initially produced in April and in order to connect the upstairs sweeps we had to capture 2 sweeps downstairs. Since the downstairs scene had changed we were planning on...

Share Measureable Showcase With Client BrianM 7 8 yearssmcclell (156): It would be great if there was a way to easily give clients the ability to take measurements other than collaborating. I am finding that with how inaccurate it is I'm not sure what purposes it holds other than for me to measure for basic floorplans.
Other Uses 4 Marking Features: Window-Mirror DanSmigrod 10 8 yearsccctucker (154): The reason behind the markers is to stop the errant points that result from the IR penetrating the glass, resulting with skewed points that tell the computer that there may be another room there. When it can't find something else to verify or align to, it makes registration so much more difficult. This is why you see "overspray" in the dollhouse mode, the marker may have been put on, but there is a gap between the actual wall and...

Blinds Open-Blinds Shut seanminor 4 8 yearsDanSmigrod (29002): @seanminor 1. I begin capture with a compass so that, when possible, I do not have direct light into the windows. 2. If I can not avoid bright sun, I will do my best to capture the room anyway. Then, I will return to that room (during the same shoot) to add the "walk around" scans. (All other scans where needed for the Dollhouse, Floor Plan and to keep moving to the next space, BUT these "sunlight" scans get...

Sanning times REMAX_EDGE 2 8 yearsCarlosFHdz (605): At first, it takes longer because you're being conservative on the distance from scan to scan point. As you get more practice, it will be faster. You will start to push the distance from each scan, specially in bigger rooms. Now, we're at about 35 min per 1000 sqft. I personally did a 6300 sqft property in 3 hours and 4200 sqft property in 2 hours. The layout of the home is also a determining factor in time to scan. I would recommend...

Getting Showcase ready for Gear VR headset Rik 7 8 yearsQueen_City_3D (3063): @kc1302 I agree that cardboard will be VR for the masses and I hope that Matterport VR Showcases will be available in that format. You can order google cardboard kits out of China for as little as $2.19 shipping included, which would make it affordable to buy several hundred to brand and hand out as promotional tools. Only effective though if the VR Showcases will work with Google Cardboard. That said, I've used some Google Cardboard apps...
Sky Light problems DigitalImageries 7 8 yearsDanSmigrod (29002): @DigitalImageries In your Capture workflow, when you have direct sunlight, do that space later in the shoot (as described by @ccctucker). When that's not possible - shooting a stairwell that has a skylight, for example – that you need to shoot to get to the next floor, shoot the stairwell anyway. Then, during the same shoot, return to the stair well to re-scan. In 3D Workshop, disable the original scans. Dan
Improving My Scans THRHHI 3 8 yearsTHRHHI (292): Thanks for the input Jamie. I understand what you said using the workshop. I went and researched and like your idea of shooting the closets if for nothing else to capture the data to fill in the dark spaces. That has been annoying me. Next on the list is the video aspect for my wife's real estate videos. So far the screen capture is way to choppy for my liking. I have tried several that i already have but not happy with the results. Always...
Download Screen Capture Errors Queen_City_3D 11 8 yearsrpetersn (2010): Hey Dan... Where would the static text come this something unique you'd want to enter/set for yourself? Or, could it use the name of the model? Something like this could be possible...but it'd be a bit more work on my end. Maybe we can put a bounty on this for me to put some more time into it? I'd be willing to continue to cover the hosting cost.

Privacy / HIPPA rules Wonderdawg 6 8 yearsQueen_City_3D (3063): A few months ago I inquired to Matterport Support about the ability to obscure/"blur-out" objects in a scan. I mentioned that if a picture frame or something else is captured that the client would rather not be there, it would be neat to be able to draw around it in the Matterport Workshop and have that section then be obscured when scanned from the public model. They responded stating "a feature like you describe is already...

From an agent standpoint it 1)allows me to provide my sellers with better service and market their home in an innovative manner 2)gives the buyer the opportunity to view their home in 3D which may reduce the number of showings to people that were looking for a home that had x that this home does not 3)provides the prospective purchaser with a...

Shooting Detached Garage and Above Gameroom seanminor 9 8 yearsJohnBecker (388): When you scan the second floor of the garage, it should be a separate "floor" that isn't the same as the second floor of the house. I had a situation like that and Bob Horn at Matterport said that two non-contiguous "second floors" would have to get separate floors assigned to them in Capture. This may have changed since then, but it seems like the safe way to do it.
Marketing Idea Queen_City_3D 10 8 yearsjimduquette (10): Items are always market to market. I ran a couple of properties on individual pages and had good traffic. We've had very good luck on the weekends with people texting in. At the end of the day, its all about lead capture. In an industry where we spend $1,000's/month on lead capture, getting 6-8 text ins every week off of 6-10 signs for $20/month is a good return on investment.

Lighting Techniques for inside Wonderdawg 7 8 yearsron0987 (2403): Dan, I understand what you are saying about the first scan and using a grey scale to set the WB but with wide range of areas covered I do not see that working. Because if you set it for a Kitchen that could have fluorescent, halogen and or led lights then move to an area that has incandescent or natural light which would again throw the balance off. I think that overall it is good. But I have noticed this being an issue when I moved from...
Pro Tip: Deactivating Scans in 3D Workshop DanSmigrod 6 8 yearsMDuff (19): Hi Dan, Just sent the photos the mini maps, but after reading Cindiewozniak tips from Matterport regarding outdoor scanning, there is mention of not being closer than 18" from anything. I think my 2 scans with issues may be because they were shot to close to the walls. I was trying to get the biggest angle for the lens, but this is news to me about being to close to something. I love this forum as I'm really learning from everyone. ...
