Hello Matterport Product Development:

From the WGAN Forum discussion:

Cloning Matterport spaces

Based on the discussion between @schaferu and @lilnitsch

Enable DUPLICATE model with ALL tricked-out features (MatterTags, Highlight Reel, etc.)

Best,

Dan

I'm so confused why Matterport doesn't provide a JPEG of the floor plan since it is the most universally recognized digital image format on the planet.

Very frustrating.

Hello Matterport,

Please see this discussion; starting with post #8:

Does that help?

I must say, that this is a (new) feature, that I do not like at all. Everybody can read my edits. Everybody can take measurements, even if I do not allow in showcase. Can you also surpass the password protection with it?

I've requested one of my spaces be duplicated.

When will Matterport replace floor plan view with Interactive Floor Plans?

@tresdear

I could imagine that either preventing viewing of the nadir and zenith in a Matterport digital twin or adding overlays to the Matterport zenith and nadir - logo/website URL - would be a nice 3rd party solution using the Matterport API/SDK.

The only thing to watch out for is that first of all you 'do' the blur and then you hit apply. After hitting apply it converts each collection of brush strokes into a blur. While it is 'applying' there are little spinners next to each set of blur brushstrokes.

This is all fine, there would be no problem with using this as is if it weren't for the fact that you irretrievably change the images. So the best thing to do is save a copy of the non-blurred version of the model and then apply the blur to a duplicate. However there is no 'duplicate' functionality on the matterport portal. I do not keep every single model on the original ipad, I very much doubt anybody does and so this requires an email to support to ask them to duplicate the model which is why I suspect it hasn't yet went public.
If there were a duplicate button we'd be golden.


Should not have to duplicate the model to be able to revert from a blur.

Before I try it out on a job I'm delivering to a client I'd better make sure I've got a processed duplicate waiting on deck in case of blur disaster.

My big question about the blur tool is why is has to be a 3D tool. That's obviously a big reason it has taken so long and is still in beta. Years ago they could have spent about 5 minutes implementing a panorama blur tool and rolled it out while they worked on the 3D version. Sure, we'd have had to manually blur every panorama where an undesirable feature was visible, but on the other hand, we could have been blurring out stuff YEARS AGO.

select multi scans in the list (to hide or show).
like "Ctrl" or "shift" + select scans.

Any suggestions?

@CharlesHH

Sounds like you would like to specify which 360s are used to create the Matterport short videos?

Thanks for sharing this Southern 3D Tours and RKO Photography!

The following "wish list" was posted to this WGAN Forum discussion:

Matterport to Offer Color Floor Plans with More formats; Multiple Languages

If they wanna really impress their customers, do something innovative. Allow me to label rooms while scanning and place the floor plan order while uploading my model. That would be amazing. It would allow my floor plan order to be processed much faster, and get rid of a step where I'm constantly keeping an eye out for my model to be ready so I can order the floor plan. While you're at it charge 16 bucks for 24 hr turn around too like everyone else. Just my 2 cents.

==> Any Fix for MP's "Print-Quality" Photos?

When I used to shoot for residential luxury real estate I was often shooting estates larger than 4000 sqft interior plus exterior. 20+ rooms in total. Some of them bigger than 10.000 sqft interior space.

For these properties I have developed a special Matterport technique that I am calling ”shoot4photography” with Matterport. You shoot the regular tour slightly above door knob level and also take some extra “photography” shots in lower level at the sweet spots.

I had to work with this process because clients and realtors only provided a certain time frame between 1/2 day or maximum full day for the shooting, which made it impossible to take the extra walk with a professional Photo System Camera (DSLR). Especially not in these mega properties.

So I learned to improve the quality from the Matterport snapshots and developed this shoot4photography process slightly overshooting (shooting more points than necessary). My material even went on print and we were very very successful with these images.

I’m still offering my “shoot4photography” workflow in all time-critical virtual tour situations - even though I am not shooting single residential real estate anymore. This workflow gives great material in good quality (Pro3) and with outstanding perspectives in the virtual tour and also in the optional flythrough/video mode (play button).


This is the process we use as well. But it's a hassle to move the tripod height up and down, and to go back after processing to edit the tour to disable the low positions in the walkthrough.

What would help:
1) A motorized tripod that will raise and lower at the click of a button. These exist, but we don't have one yet.
2) Matterport updates their Capture system to include something like:
A) Automatic detection of low positions, disabled by default if we check that box in our account.
OR
B) Simple process for marking a scan during capture as "to be disabled". After processing, these low scans are disabled automatically. No need for wasted time editing the scan positions after processing.

The thing is, we don't want to edit the scan positions in Matterport tour at all after processing. The obvious time to do that is on site, when we're actually making the decision of which scans are for a better dollhouse, which are for 2D photos, and which are for the walkthrough. It's duplicated effort to go back and assess all over again the next day. (Usually this is done by a different person, not the one who captured the space. So it's easy for them to miss the nuance.)

We want to deliver the link the the client, dust our hands off, and keep moving. Imagine how much time could be saved if we didn't have to duplicate this effort with every space scanned? This seems like low hanging fruit for Matterport. It's probably lost in a sea of other feature requests.

Matterport is the Metaverse Company for NOW. By far the most affordable and accessible solution in the market.

Perfect timing to call out the ugly issue of the black hole. Based on the MP guys facial expressions. They understand our headache with this. They suggest a 3rd party to address the issue. They also mentioned vague work arounds that I feel we all know don't seem to work.

Fortunately it sounds like they are working on a solution. Fingers crossed!
