Want your images lined up? When selected in the plugin interface the I2P Effector is automatically attached to the Cloner containing your images and will line them up next to each other with a gap that is easily adjustable in the Cloner Object.


If you already have materials with images in the color or luminance channels loaded into your scene you can convert them to image planes with the correct size ratio in one click using the “Materials to Plane” button in the Hide and Seek interface.

Quick Matte Pro Plugin Product Case


  1. WOW! I have just discovered this great plugin and have seen the videos and love much how this works and would surely like to buy it, and this is something I have been wishing to have, BUT the problem is that I only have Cinema4D Lite version (I think is the Cinema 4D 14 Lite version) that is available for Adobe Creative Cloud Users.

    So I would like to know if this can be used with Cinema4D Lite, so I do not want to buy it, and then see that is not compatible.

    Thanks very much and congratulations for making this great plugin

    Cinema 4D 14 Lite is not compatible with C++/Python APIs are not supported in C4D Lite

  2. I haven’t officially tried it since I don’t have Lite, but since Lite doesn’t support Python scripts this definitely wouldn’t work:/ Hopefully they’ll allow plugins in the next version of Lite

  3. Looks good! Does this work images carrying alpha channels such as a psd or tga w alpha?

    • Hi Lee, it does work with images with Alpha Channels. For PSDs it won’t read it from each layer by default. It will read the main documents alpha.
