CloudPano Virtual Tour Review
Hey Everyone, and welcome back to a new Momentum 360 Blog. This is our first post of 2021 and it’s a good one!
2020 was rough on all of us, but here at Momentum, we like to roll with the punches. Essentially, we take tough circumstances and let them motivate us to continue to improve. Along that same vein, in today’s blog, we will be reviewing CloudPano, the latest and greatest in 3D virtual tour technology
In today’s blog we are going to be talking about:
- What is Cloud Pano?
- Our Recommendation
So let’s get started!
What Is CloudPano?
CloudPano is a virtual tour software, used to create and publish 3D virtual tours. CloudPano makes the creation, hosting, and sharing of virtual tours extremely simple for those just starting out in the business of virtual tours or for users who are experienced and ready to streamline their services. CloudPano users can drag and drop uploaded photos, set and reorder viewing scenes, insert ambient music, and add hotspots. Additionally, the software is built for efficient smartphone usage. It also has an in-built motion sensor that responds to movements through phones. Likewise, it enables VR goggles for a more immersive experience. Users have full control over the privacy of their projects. They can set passwords to restrict access or share links with other people without the app. CloudPano also has a community page where users can share their tours to other users. Overall, users have full control over their projects from creation, creativity, and the privacy of their projects.
Nowadays, there are many different 3D virtual tour softwares available, and CloudPano is one of the easiest to use with considerable advantages to take your virtual tours to the next level. In the past, Momentum 360 has exclusively used Matterport but as we grow and adapt to today’s market, CloudPano shows substantial advantages.
Advantages of CloudPano
CloudPano was built to entice the everyday user. Other VR softwares are limited in their accessibility and usability, but CloudPano was created to produce professional images with ease.
The core features of CloudPano include:
- Scene Navigation
- Floorplans & Maps
- Social Sharing
- 360-Site Stream
In addition, PropertyShark reviewed several 360 tour software companies. CloudPano was ranked third on their list and was praised for its unlimited tours and for the company’s commitment to the needs of ther customers.
Momentum 360 owner Sean Boyle has used CloudPano to create virtual tours and believes the advantages of CloudPano to be:
- Unlimited space
- CloudPano does not limit users to a certain amount of tours and does not charge users any extra for hosting.
- Aerial and outside capability
- Most virtual tour softwares are only usable in an indoor setting. In residential real estate especially, being able to provide images of the outdoor space as well as the indoor is a game-changer.
- Compatibility with any camera
- With Matterport, only certain cameras were compatible with their software. This limits photographers. However, with CloudPano, any camera with 360 capabilities are able to be uploaded to the CloudPano software to create a virtual tour.
- Drone panoramic capability
For all its’ usability, you would think that CloudPano is expensive. However, CloudPano is actually one of the cheapest 3D tour softwares currently on the market. The vast majority of virtual tour software platforms charge a monthly or annual rate. This is not the case with CloudPano. CloudPano begins charging users a one-time fee of $10 for their basic model. For their Pro features, the price increases to $33 per month.
This cost is a great value simply because at this price, users can generate an unlimited amount of tours. With software like Matterport, users are paying a lower monthly fee but are capped at how many tours and have to pay extra for anything past the limit.
Here at Momentum 360, we fully endorse the use of CloudPano technology. Not only is it software designed for the novice 3D photographer, but it is also incredibly useful and easily adaptable for those who have been in the virtual tour business for a long time.
We have been longtime users of Matterport, and while Matterport has a solid software base, we can fully recommend the use of CloudPano for its usability, price, and ease. Simply put, CloudPano makes virtual tours simple. We recommend CloudPano for seasoned virtual tour experts, but believe this software is easy for even beginners to understand.
Here at Momentum, we’re making the switch and are excited to see where it takes us.
