Awesome! Love the water feature! Lots of space too, I'm jealous.

I've seen your Phineas comics out there, always makes me laugh. :ROFLMAO:

that is amazing! Can you give us the name of the app and the steps involved with creating this? It really allows the users to get an immersive perspective of your Tiki bar! This was done with a cell phone?

(I'm going to have to fire up my Quest2 and check it out)

Kahikina the free app is called Matterport Capture. Uses your Android or iPhone for the pics. You set up a free account with Matterport that hosts and processes the images, free account allows you one "space". Learning curve is not too bad, I watched a few YouTube videos to learn how to hold camera for best results, etc. It seems to work better inside than outside, this was my 4th attempt before I got what I really wanted. Should be set for 3D Scan, not 360 Capture. The Simple Scan doesn't show the ceiling as well, select the Complete Scan. Let me know if you have questions, it was a fun project.

I tried out the app today. It's very cool. I'll have to keep working with it as I wasn't able to transition from outside to inside. I also think I have the lighting too bright. I'll keep working on it. (y)

Very cool Kahikina! Isn't that fun to play with? You can make as many free ones as you want, you can only have one active at a time. I think I'm on my 4th or 5th version (maybe more LOL). Mine is all outside so I didn't have to transition, can't give much advise on that. I do know outside works best out of the bright sunlight. Just after sunset or on an overcast day. There is also something about 360 view vs 3D view for outside but I haven't figured that out yet.

Yeah, the white lights seem a little bright, you can fix that next time around

I've been experimenting with a Virtual Reality capture of my Tiki patio, looks especially cool with and Oculus

Made a new VR Scan. I don't see a way to edit my original post so I'll add the new url here: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=h...gY0yoAZyJb7wEfYCPg1TPyjFQ4cezIA9spuVburVfXKno

That's awesome! Are you spacing those grabs about 4ft apart? It looks like you did about 10 feet on one shot. It turned out excellent!

Kahikina I didn't measure, I just kinda went from one point of interest to the next. This is the latest, I have tried about 10 versions. You would think that the more points the better but it doesn't always work out like that. Also, outside it works out best just after the sun goes down. But if I shoot too many points it starts getting dark before I finish. I could split it over 2 nights for more consistent lighting but I get impatient LOL
