Which 3D or 360º Tour Platform is right for you? Kevin helps you decide.

---

 

Hi All,

Imagine shooting the same multi-million mansion with:

✓ Matterport 3D Tour
✓ GeoCV 3D Tour (including 3D aerial)
✓ Nodalview (360º Tour)
✓ Zillow 3D Home (360º Tour)
✓ Cupix 3D Tour

Greater Los Angeles Matterport Service Provider Home3D.us (@Home3DKevin Dole imagined that. And, except for substituting one house for one of the shoots, that's exactly what Kevin Dole is in the midst of completing.

Kevin will be my guest on WGAN-TV Live at 5 (5 pm ET | GMT -4) on Thursday, 21 March 2019 to talk about his experience with five platforms.

Among the questions I will ask Kevin ...

1. What was the learning curve for shooting?
2. What was the learning curve for post production?
3. What was the shooting experience like with each platform?
4. What was the post production experience like with each platform?
5. Show us each tour that you shot. Which do you like best and why?
6. What did you like/dislike about shooting each platform?
7. What did you like/dislike about post production for reach platform?
8. Can you tell us about the GeoCV aerial 3D shooting and post production experience?
9. What else would you like to share about your experience shooting/publishing with five platforms?

Kevin will be starting new topics in the WGAN Forum around many of these questions. I could imagine that each topic will be a single subject such as:

1. each camera/platform
2. comparing learning curve
3. comparing shooting experience
4. comparing post production experience
5. comparing 3D/360º Tours
6. overall conclusions and recommendations

This is an amazing labor of love for Kevin to shoot and publish with five different platforms. And, I am SO thankful that Kevin is sharing this amazing experience with the WGAN Forum Community.

This WGAN-TV show will likely be tremendously helpful if you are thinking about:

✓ which camera/platform to get
✓ adding a camera/platform
✓ switching a camera/platform
✓ what this other platforms are like
