Is there any way to hide sensitive info (car license plates)

Hi all, I'm new to matterport, I will be doing my first demonstration scan of my friends hair salon tonight but just wondered as I've contacted a few car showrooms if there will be anything in the future to blank things like car license plates? I'm thinking of something like a mattertag that can be dragged and dropped to a certain size and then it remains locked in position to hide the sensitive info. Please don't state the obvious about putting plates over the top of the existing ones:) as there may be other uses that this feature could be used for.

  • Hi @sitimms,

    Unfortunately, there isn't anything at this time. However, a similar feature that would work for this too has been talked about a lot. the problem is placing a Mattertag over the object you want to hide is a false sense of security because the license place would still be part of the pano image. It's much more complicated to build a tool that actually blurs the pano itself in the correct location and the same license plate if it can be seen from other panos as well.

    At this time we don't have anything like that, but it's nice to see this use case brought to our attention so we can better gauge demand for the tool.

  • Build a tool in the workshop is hard. But I do suppose it is easy to build a tool in capture app at preview time.

  • I don't know how easy/difficult that would be either, but certainly an interesting approach. I'll be happy to pass it on.

  • Hi. I'll refresh little bit this topic :) 

    Maybe a tool like a spray or brush can be useful to hide some elements in workshop?

    How do you think? Is it possible to create something like this? Or maybe just to have possibility to edit single scan 360 in other application expl. Photoshop and then upload and replace. Would be very helpful can hide unwanted elements.

    Best Regards
