Because of the immersive nature of virtual reality, having high-quality 2D and 3D data, and adhering to scanning best practices, is key to producing a quality virtual reality experience.
In addition to our general scanning guidelines, there are a few tips and tricks for scanning places to create the highest-quality 3D mesh for VR conversion. Visit our support site to learn how:3D SCANNING FOR VIRTUAL REALITYEDITING YOUR SPACES FOR VIRTUAL REALITY
CoreVR enables any Matterport user to get their existing and future Matterport Spaces converted into virtual reality, automatically. You do not need any additional hardware or software - it's all embedded right into your existing Matterport system.
Now until December 31, 2016, we're making CoreVR conversion free to all of our customers, so your existing Spaces, and any Spaces you create before December 31, 2016, will automatically be available in CoreVR, and the VR button will automatically appear in your embedded 3D Showcases on VR-compatible devices. You can also control whether the VR button appears at the account level, or individual Space level.
CustomVR is our white-glove service. When you order CustomVR, one of our 3D artists modifies your Space to improve the quality of the underlying 3D mesh and select scan positions that are most appropriate. In some cases, this enhanced model quality also enables us to offer stereoscopic views and flythrough transitions. It is a good option for Spaces that did not convert well in CoreVR, or if you would like to evaluate flythrough transitions and stereoscopic views for a particular Space.
CustomVR typically costs a flat fee of $250, plus $0.15 per square foot ($1.62 per square meter) for conversion. We are happy to offer a free consultation before converting your Space.
CustomVR is only necessary when the Space you’d like to convert has low-quality mesh, is very large, or has complex or unique features that may require manual cleanup, or if you want stereoscopic views or flythrough transitions for a particular Space.
It takes a bit longer to turn around, but can deliver an enhanced experience for select Spaces. We’re happy to review any Space that you’d like to convert to recommend the best option. Simply email us.
While you can order Core VR for any Space in your account, models that exceed our officially supported processing size of 200 scans can sometimes encounter processing problems.
We suggest you email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to convert a very large or complex space for VR.
No! Once you’ve converted your Space through Core VR or Custom VR, you can access it on Matterport VR Showcase for GearVR or Cardboard. Simply click on the VR link from a compatible device with one of our apps installed.
