How is a 3d tour different from other existing tours?
A traditional 360 graphing tour is actually not virtual at all. It is just a static photo gallery. Although there are all sorts of techniques, it will not be possible to walk around in a room in the vast majority of tours. At the most, the traditional tours show 10 separate photographs of the space. Traditional photographers use DSLR cameras with which they link multiple photos to each other and thus suggest the idea of 3d.
Our 3D tour uses a specially designed camera to produce a few dozen to hundreds of scans that are seamlessly rendered in a dollhouse model. We use the high tech Matterport camera with 12 cameras and lenses with which a polygonal mesh is created. Abacadabra? There is more. This mesh can be viewed and traversed online (desktop ipad tablet smartphone) from all sides. Or with the latest gadget; the Oculus Rift. https://www.oculus.com
How long does the recording of a 3d tour take?
That depends a bit on the type of space, but mainly on the surface of a room. The more meters, the more scans, the longer it will last. But assuming a space of 100m2, that will be about an hour.
What do I have to do before and after making the recordings?
You do not have to do anything at all. Everything in our virtual tour is created digitally.
Provide a clean room before the recordings begin. Make sure that all furniture and attributes are in the place where they are supposed to lie. Make sure your pets can not walk through the picture.
Are you not present? Take care of a key or that there is someone who lets us in.
What if the weather is bad?
Our 3D cameras use High-Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDR) that allows the camera to correct light changes itself. In this way, changing circumstances can be taken care of and work can be done on cloudy days. The result will then be the same as for shooting on a sunny day.
Which browsers are compatible with the 3d virtual tour?
The 3d tours use WebGL, the standard for content with 3d. On desktop computers, WebGl is supported by the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari and Internet Explorer. On mobile devices, WebGL is supported by Safari for iOS 8 and Chrome for Android. Sometimes loading a 3D model on smartphones takes longer on mobile devices. If your browser does not succeed then it is time to update that browser.

What should I do during the shooting?
Your presence is not required during the recording. The scanning process takes a lot of time and it is certainly not the intention that someone is somewhere in the picture. This also applies to pets such as cats and dogs who have to look for a separate spot.
How do I have to pay?
You can pay locally or you will receive an invoice by e-mail of which we would like to receive the payment immediately. Not paid yet means not being online and therefore unfortunately visible 3D model.
How long will my 3d tour be hosted on the servers?
The 3d Tours use fairly large data files that are stored on servers in the cloud. The first 12 months of hosting are inclusive and therefore free. The next period starts a year after your model is online. In the event of late payment, the model will be set to inactive and it will no longer be visible. Incidentally, you can cancel at any time, whereby we note that no refund will be given after cancellation within an existing period.
What is your delivery time?
3d tours within 24 hours We send the web link and iframecode together with instructions by email. With that iframe code you can have the 3d model play directly on your own website.
Photography 24 hours
Video walk around 24 hours – duration of the video approx. 2 minutes
Extra photography in and outside about 2 days
What if I have to cancel an appointment?
You can cancel up to 24 hours (1 day) in advance. When canceling within 24 hours we charge € 75.00 excl. VAT.
