Teasers are short video clips that show off the best parts of a Matterport Space.
They're great to put in email marketing campaigns or post to social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make the GIF loop?
There's many different ways to do this depending the type of software you like. Here's any easy way:
- Go to to ezgif.com/maker and upload your GIF file.
- Scroll down to "GIF Options" and make sure "Loop Count" is empty so it loops forever.
- Click "Animate it". The looping GIF should appear below.
- Right click on the image and then save it to your computer.
How are the teasers created?
Matterport’s computer vision system automatically identifies rooms within Spaces and then selects the most attractive view from within a room. From that data, we pick out the best views from the whole space and then create the teaser. All this happens with no human interaction.
I'm not happy with the teaser. Can I edit it or create my own?
While you can't edit the teaser directly from within Matterport, you can use video editing software such as iMovie for Mac to make fine-tune edits. There are lots of options for video editing, both free and commercial.
You can also create your own video teaser. This is a more manual process that requires you to record your screen and use video editing software. However, the advantage is that you can get the exact view and angle that you want. Learn more.
Does the size of the space (more square foot) affect the size of the teaser?
No, all teasers are the same length of around 10 to 15 seconds.
My Space was processed before May 2017. Can I still get a teaser video?
If you still have the model on your iPad, then open it, add or adjust a few markings, and upload again. Since the space has already been processed, the reupload will be free. This will create a new Matterport Space from which you can download the teaser.
If you don't have the model on your iPad, you will have to manually record your screen to create a video. Learn more.
