Hiding 3D Dollshouse sections
The background to this the impact to models from sunlight and heat.
The Dollshouse and Floorplan views are often seriously damaged with 'holes' and big sections missing leaving only odd artifacts. The conundrum is we have superb photographic images, 360 views, which are truly key features of the property - necessary for selling or renting - but the Dollshouse and Floor plan are so messed up there is a desire to delete all those scans. I know this is a technical challenge but the ability to hide (NOT delete) whole sections and other 'artifacts' would allow us to show of the good dollshouse and floorplans.
The REAL need is for an ability to mask over whole sections [no-op the display] (probably via the floorplan view but which would also apply in the 3D dollshouse ). So Showcase would not display that section for that floor without impacting the scans, the images, the tour.
I have already had occasion to turn off the dollshouse leaving only the tour and self navigation. A disappointed client who wont use this product service again.
Scott. Advanced capability would be to allow masking out / hiding / patching artifacts in the 3D Dollshouse view - like holes from certain materials that do not reflect infrared scan. I experienced an invisible patio furniture upholstery fabric yesterday. This is completely invisible to the Matterport scanner (leaving holes). Similar with a deck paint. The holes are a challenge to see right through disturbing navigation but even worse is if there is a floor beneath the FLOORS GET MERGED. Yes - we know that Matterport recommends not to scan out doors but clients want the added value or will revert to video.
