Append a 360° View to your Showcase using Mattertags

As it stands, adding a 360° to your Showcase is possible, but adding a true 360° panoramic can be problematic as our system will try to place it automatically. This can lead to 360° images appended to your Showcase that don't appear in the proper place. To address this issue, you can use Mattertags (and third-party image hosting sites) to append your 360° photos anywhere in your Showcase Space. Follow the steps below to learn how to do this.

  4. Frame your Snapshot.
    • Pan with the mouse or arrow keys to frame your Snapshot - try to really capture the general scope of the entire environment, as the 360° will be extremely wide.
  5. Click the Camera icon in the center of the page to take the picture.
  6. In the "Photo Saved" pop-up that appears, click "View". Screen_Shot_2020-05-14_at_1.55.45_PM.png

    11. Click the Mattertag icon in the toolbox to the right.

    15. Click "Apply". 
    16. The 360° View will now appear inside your Mattertag window.

Make the 360° View appear in fullscreen: Alternatively, you can upload the image URL as a "Link" rather than "Media" - this will create a clickable link in your Mattertag that users can click on to see the 360° image in fullscreen mode. You can also create a clickable link with a title - highlight the title and click the "Add Link" icon, then paste the link into the URL field.
