OBJ Download now costs an additional 49 USD per Object (so 150% price increase/object?)
Just another feature that was delivered as part of the platform and included in the generated model and now you make us pay another 49 USD again per model?? Thats a 150% price increase per scanned object.
(and I am not talking about the point cloud model, which was supposed to be free only for the time being in beta, which is ok)
In todays newsletter it says:
"Note: The auto-generated MatterPak™ Bundle will replace the current manually-generated Point Cloud Beta program. As part of this new automation process, OBJs will only be available with the MatterPak™ Bundle." (which costs an additional 49 $).
Where before it was
"You can download the OBJ file for any Space you have Editor access to." and
"If you're interested in creating a local backup for any reason, here’s a list of all the Matterport assets that you can download and store locally."
So, you take us this ability, too?
Please correct me if I am wrong, but Matterport
- sells us a proprietary camera
- to be used on a proprietary platform (with monthly premium costs and per object charges)
- and now just reduces features as they like - anytime they want to (or tweak them to be a hidden surcharge of 150% of todays object scan price).
So what comes next? Getting charged for downloading JPEG`s or 360-photos?
Either I got something wrong - so please correct me - or something is going quite wrong here.
