I’m thrilled to release a massive update to our Image2Plane! Image2Plane 2.0 has arrived! I’m collaborating with my friend A.J. Haines (ajhaines.com) who I had the privilege of working with at an agency not too long ago.
Image2Plane is a Cinema4D plugin that will save you tons of time on your projects. The plugin is simple: take hundreds of images and in one click import them, put them each on their own texture, their own plane, and re-size them instantly. One click to set up a field of hundreds of images such as country flags, field of app icons, client logos, DVD covers, album covers, magazines, books, photos, trees etc.
Whenever you need massive amounts of images in your project, Image2Plane will handle that process with one click.
Image2Plane 2.0 is packed with tons of new features including:
-The ability to import a specified number of files from a folder with the option to randomize which files it grabs
-Setting the dimensions of the plane the images come in on
-The ability to choose a Cloner or Null as the parent
-Option to import planes with no segments to speed up viewport performance
-You can now save your I2P settings as defaults.
-Planes and Materials will be automatically tagged in a layer so you can easily hide all the I2P materials in the material manager.
-An all new custom Image2Plane Effector: This effector lines the images up next to each other inside a cloner no matter what size the image is. This can create some cool effects when in combination with other effectors (see video overview).
PLEASE NOTE: This plugin will NOT work in R12 or before. It only works in R13 and above.
We have a brand new two part video series showing you the updates to 2.0 as well as the original video.
