You can place your 360º Views in Workshop after you upload to the cloud as well.
With 360º View placement, you can now manually place your 360º Views within your Matterport Space. Once placed, viewers can navigate between 360º Views and the rest of the 3D space, and even from one 360º View to another. Overall, this will make your 360º Views (outdoor shots) more integrated and more prominent in your virtual tour.
Here's how it works:
- Use the Matterport camera and the Capture app to take a 360º View. You can place 360º Views on old models too.
- Select a 360º View and “Place on Map”. Drag it to the correct position on the minimap.
- Rotate the circular preview to ensure that it is oriented correctly.
- Upload the model as normal.
That’s it! Visitors to your space in 3D Showcase will be able to navigate to 360º Views naturally just as if they were part of the rest of the immersive virtual tour.
Your 360º Views (usually outdoor shots like the curb view and patios) will be more visible and your visitors get a better, more complete view of the property — both inside and out.
Frequently Asked Questions
You should always check the position and the orientation (compass heading) relative to the rest of the 3D model to make sure that it was placed correctly. If necessary, move to a different location and rotate the preview appropriately.
If you are using a Pro2 camera, we’ll attempt to use the GPS data in each scan. Sometimes a high quality GPS signal is not possible, especially when indoors.
If you are using a cellular-enabled iPad with a Pro, we will also attempt to use location data from the iPad. The iPad’s location may be slightly different from the camera’s location, especially if you are hiding from the camera instead of walking behind it. In addition, you will have to allow the iOS Capture app to use your iPad’s location data.
