[RELEASED] Magnification possible?

In scanning retail sites in particular it would be great if there was a 'magnifying' tool the viewer could use to zoom in to look at the product more closely.

  • @Bill , very interesting idea! I'll pass it over to the Capture/camera folks!

  • when we first purchased camera zoom was available. I would zoom in on my family photos on the wall. have you any idea what happensd to this option

  • Hi there, @admin-2! Stay tuned, we have some fun stuff coming out later today!

  • JC beat me to it! Thank you Matterport management and staff for making this happen! Another differentiator!

  • @simonmodera @JC Coetzee @jrbatchelor Thank YOU and the rest of the community for all the ideas, suggestions and patience. We are going to end 2016 on a strong note! Keep those great ideas coming. We are listening! It may take some time to build these ideas and make them a reality, but it's cool to see them happen one by one.

  • Hey, early days. Sad to say I have just discovered and emailed Support with 2 bugs:

    1. Hard Error trying to take snapshot images for highlight reel at extent of zoom in (+200%) or zoom out (-70%). Error code appears need to restart Workshop. Not clear if image is properly captured. (Edited 21061117 18:55 Pacific)

    2. Zoom in and Out images included in Slide show Tour do not Zoom in or out during show but images in highlight reel do show correct zoom.

  • @simonmodera Thanks for catching those and reporting. No product/feature launch is without a few small hiccups. We'll try and get those ironed out right away!

  • No problem, been there. Thanks for getting on to them @Matterport-Sibyl

  • how do we add zoom onto our Models ?

  • Hi there @carolineross! As you may have seen on the front page of this site, we have temporarily turned off the zoom feature. We were seeing some increased problems on iOS devices, so we're making a few adjustments before re-enabling it. I'll keep updates posted!

  • Zoom is great! I would caution folks scanning homes to check ahead of time for private items throughout the property. Names of children, Diplomas, etc. In the past, if you stayed a few feet away, you could keep these items up (and keep item illegible) and still scan cleanly.

  • Google maps uses a fading software to hide peoples faces in ggole maps maybe this could be a good option for us ..
