Matter - Add 3D Objects to Photos
By Pixite LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Add stunning 3D effects to your photos with real-time shadows and reflections. Export your creations as photos or video loops.
By the team that has brought you four separate apps featured by Apple, Matter is the newest addition to the Pixite Creative Suite for mobile photo editing.
Alter the reality of your photos by seamlessly adding unique 3D objects to them. Choose from 4 packs of models ranging from simple geometric shapes to complex, architectural structures. Once you’ve chosen your object, select from a range of visual styles to make it reflective or refractive, opaque or translucent. Output high resolution images and even videos.
Make your edits even more realistic by adding and adjusting the model’s shadow. Fine-tune the shadow's position, opacity, and strength. Use the built-in masking tools to erase portions of your model or shadow to seamlessly blend it into your photo's environment.
Use the unique video export feature to create short animated loops of the object spinning, pulsing, and hovering in your photo. Adjust the rotation speed and direction for a different effect every time.
Discover, experiment, and create fantastic edits using the free background images in the "Free for All" photo browser. Free for Alls are community photos that you can freely edit and share. They are contributed by amazing artists that support the mobile photo editing community. If you’re going to share, just tag your edits with the artist's Instagram username and hashtag.
Share your Matter edits on Instagram using #matterapp for a chance to be featured.
What's New in Version 1.1.6
Support for larger phone sizes
I am totally new to these photo editing apps. I'm most familiar with Photoshop, which I use just for very basic functions. This app for adding 3D objects is amazing and fairly intuitive. I've made so many fun pictures in just the one day I've had it! I hope the developers will consider adding a glow feature for the objects (I couldn't figure out how to do that...but maybe I just haven't played with it enough yet), a way to better control the direction of light or shadow, the ability to incorporate translational motion (not just rotation) and, as other reviewers have suggested, the ability to add your own photos as the object. Nevertheless, this is one of the most fun apps I've come across, and the capabilities in it are pretty amazing as is!
Update: I finally figured out that you can control where the light and shadow goes using a single finger motion in the shadow edit mode. Now if I can remember how I changed the direction of the reflection...
This is a great app. with lot of potential. I haven't seen any update to address improvements and new functions. Please, do not forget that you can keep adding new features that will keep this wonderfully designed app at the top of the pro charts.
I am constantly amazed by the quality of apps made by Pixite, although Matter exceeds any expectation.
On a telephone? Isn't it just unbelievable?
- More objects (of course), like inapp purchase for extra cathegories
- Ability to apply textures on objects
but the most important missing feature is being able to mask shadows. Since Matter only works with 2D pictures, shadows need to be masked around 2d backgrounds.
Matter comes already with a surprising array of controls and objects with a great shadow rendering engine.
A wonderful app.
WAITING TO BE ABLE TO IMPORT VIDEOS!
Great potential, but...
The ONLY problem I have with this app is that half the time I use it, it will CONSTANTLY crash and close, and once I reload the app, I find that ALL of my editing has not been saved. I try to do a little, close the app, and then reload it with hopes that my progress will be saved once it crashes again, but it doesn't work. I'd love to give this 5 stars, but the constant crashing is very, VERY frustrating. It needs to be fixed right away...
