Capture Street View doesn't 'capture' Marcus111147 6/1/12 12:38 PM
SketchUp Version:
I have completed a block building in Building Maker, and am trying to add some street view pics. 

I clicked on "Add Street View" and the "Street View Photo Capture" screen appears, with the building displayed.

I clicked on "Capture" button, and a progress indicator appears in the upper right portion of the screen... and it spins... and spins... and spins... forever.

Can anyone help?

(Yeah, I am a total newbie)

I am having this problem, too. I have tried it on Chrome & IE9 in Windows Vista as well as Chrome on MacOS. They all three do the same thing. I can't figure out a way to get a Street View image into Building Maker, and my models are suffering for it.

Have you checked to see if Street View imagery is actually available for the subject area ?

If there is no Street View, you won't be able to get any of it's imagery.

Have a look using Google Earth to see if it is available.
If so, then there must be an issue that requires attention.

Yes, Street View imagery is definitely available. I can angle and zoom the street view image to 'frame' the side of the building I want to capture, but after I hit the capture button, just as Marcus said, "a progress indicator appears in the upper right portion of the screen... and it spins... and spins... and spins... forever" Attached is an image of how it looks when it hangs -- just picture the dots of the progress indicator spinning.

Yes, cyttocs -- that is exactly what I am experiencing. (And streetview images ARE available on the buildings I wish to work on).  My browser is Google Chrome, so it's hard to believe this is browser related.

I am seeing this too.  Much better images are available on Street View but I cannot "capture" them.  How long should this take?

The spinning progress indicator used to turn into a thumbnail of the captured photo within a couple of seconds at most. With this problem, I've let it go for at least 5-10 minutes and never had it stop spinning and capture.
