I spent some time researching various online presentation tools that would allow me to mix a Matterport 3D Showcase tour with other media such as text, animations, and videos.

I thought the best way to share the outcome was to create a short video tutorial (above).

In summary, neither PowerPoint (with LiveWeb plugin); PowerPoint Online; Prezi; Microsoft Sway; or Adobe Slate for iPad support iFrames – which is what Matterport offers.

I found, instead, a nice HTML5 tool called VISME (pricing) that did the job.

The Matterport 3D Showcase model I'm using in the demo is the lobby of Microsoft Recruiting in Redmond, WA (For Microsoft, I created the interactive touch display apps that are featured in the model).

VISEME Demo Deck: RUN Studios, Director, Digital and Emerging Media Paolo Tosolini created this demo deck using VISME to show how a Matterport 3D Showcase could be included using its iFrame embed code.
