What do you need for a virtual tour? 

Step 1: Scan your space with Matterport

To begin your virtual tour journey, you need to capture your space using a Matterport 3D camera. Matterport’s advanced scanning technology enables you to create detailed and accurate 3D scans, known as digital twins. These digital replicas capture every aspect of the space, providing a comprehensive view that allows viewers to explore as if they were physically present.

If you’re in Australia or New Zealand, Matterport Pro2 and Pro3 cameras are available for purchase through CAPTUR3D, ensuring you have access to top-of-the-line equipment for your scanning needs. Remember, a virtual tour is not just about capturing images; it’s about creating a compelling narrative that guides viewers through the property. Consider the flow of the tour, highlighting the key features and selling points of the property.

Step 2: Add your digital twin to CAPTUR3D

Once you’ve scanned your space with Matterport, it’s time to upload your digital twin to CAPTUR3D. Our user-friendly platform offers a suite of tools and features that enhance your virtual tour experience. Within our Creator Studio, you can easily customise and enrich your digital twin by adding virtual staging, audio and interactive video content.

CAPTUR3D offers accurate and detailed 2D and 3D floor plans that can be seamlessly integrated into your virtual tours. These floor plans enhance the user experience, allowing viewers to navigate and visualise the property’s layout with ease.
