Best way to show exterior of the house? What am I missing?

I must be missing something simple...  I mostly post my tours to facebook. When I do so, I want the thumbnail to show the exterior of the house.  The only way I can seem to do that is to set the exterior snapshot as the tour's START POINT.  I don't want the tour to start outside with the user "stranded" at that exterior snapshot with no EASY way to "enter" the interior 3d tour.  

How do you all handle this?  Is everyone just using interior shots as thumbnails?  If so, how does the user even know what the exterior looks like?

So frustrating...

  • Hi Greg,

    I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.  Unfortunately, the bug that allowed that to happen has been fixed and now it's just a matter of getting an actual feature that works as intended built into Workshop. 

    It is something we're looking at and hope to have out in the near future.  What you can do for now is capture a Snapshot of the outside and post the snapshot along with a link to your Space in 3D Showcase.  Let me know if that works, since I've yet to try it myself. 

    Best regards,

    - Amir

  • @Matterport-Amir Is there any update on this yet? I haven’t used Matterport for a few months and am just uploading a new space today and waiting for it to render I’d like to know if this fundamental flaw which was originally raised as an absolute priority by several people about 6 months ago has been resolved.
