Ability to Mark Closets, Powder Rooms, and Other Small Areas in Capture App
So one thing that bugs me is how difficult it can be to scan a closet or other small area that you may or may not want to show in the actual walkthrough. I thought it would be awesome if we could mark a door so that in the next scan we can open the door and scan inside without getting an error.
Not sure if that makes sense, so I'll try to explain it from the view point of someone viewing the tour. Let's say they are going through the master bedroom and see a door that happens to be the walk-in closet. My vision is that the door would be tagged so they would know it's a closet door, and when the click the door, it opens and they are able to walk-in (or peak in if the closet isn't large enough).
Personally, I'd prefer for the doors to be closed as you go through the home, only opening when someone wants to go in. The only way to do it now is to try to trick the camera, which can be time consuming and might not show well once you upload. I had a hell of a time trying to get a basement done on a fairly large house because it had a door leading down that had to be closed because the owner was down there with his dog while I scanned the main floor and second floor. Then I had to go back and rescan the area because when I opened the door to try to go down I got an error. I then cracked the door and scanned from further back, moved the camera, opened the door a little more and scanned again, and had to repeat until I got it so the door was open without errors. I wasn't happy with the result in the end, but I had to get a quick turnaround for the agent, so it is what it is. I also had to trick the camera to capture the screened-in porch off of the kitchen. It took a couple of extra scans, but wasn't too bad. You can see the scan here - https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=TtjBWuZ3nxX. I marked the basement door so you know what it is when it's closed.
I would think that if you can mark mirrors and windows, why not doors? This would make things SO much easier for me, and I'm guessing everyone else. :)
