@castaway

Outside of a bump a loose clamp or ballhead can cause similar issues

This is a Real Estate Agent Client or by owner?

Sounds like "By Owner" ~ either way this particular client doesn't seem to understand the purpose of the tour. Regardless of the tour platform this isn't "Fine Art" it's a tool to help sell or rent a property by allowing someone to preview a property remotely

I agree. I have not taken on "By Owner" clients for 9 years. Too much maintenance and when their generally over priced home does not sell...they start blaming the photos. Too many professional entities out there to waste your time with "owners"

@adc1967 I have had the opposite experience I have had a couple FSBO's (though not my bread and butter) and they gave me full control to do my thing and sold quickly with multiple offers. But, I am in a hot market right now

FSBO work for some photographers, I just avoid since I only have a few residential agents and focus on commercial-Architectural work.

@adc1967 Sorry for the delay. He described himself as a realtor/real estate investor. I rescanned the property and disregarded his request that I scan from the threshold and the rescan was infinitely better.

@castaway This was the first and last time I take direction from someone that doesn't even own the camera and at the same time not know anything about how the Matterport system worked.

I rescanned the property using best practices and there were no alignment issues. I took a page from lilnitsch's book, opened the patio door before starting the scan, scanned the attached patio and there were no weird alignment issues or odd glare from the lights.

I'm going to start targeting builders. I've landed one but there are several in the area where I live. I'm done with Realtors. So many here in Texas are still holding open houses and insist that "photos" and "photo tours" do a better job than Matterport. There are others that are leery of the price even though I'm probably the most affordable in the area.

I had an inside contact at the builder I'm affiliated with, so should I be talking to the director of sales or marketing at the other organizations?

Thanks in advance

@fotoguy They never got back to me. Typical though. I rescanned and the everything was fine.

I'd email the guy: "Matterport and 3D tech in general is new technology. It is not perfect, yet. Someday it will be. Until then we have to live with minor glitches".
