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.

Unique & Exceptional

I love this app! And I’m not saying that in typical internet hyperbolic fashion, I’m being genuine. I’ve been consistently using Matter for 2-3 years now, & it’s never disappointed. It’s allowed me to create digital art I didn’t know was possible w/o expensive software &/or computer degree.

It’s a unique editing tool, & even after trying most top photo editors/effects apps I’ve yet to find anything comparable! It provides an unusual effect of 3D objects (in basic, organic, abstract, sci fi etc shapes) to pics. With customization of the objects surface (like reflect, transparent, edge fade etc), color (if desired), shadows (control shadow floor, direction of highlights, opacity & blur), masking tool, video options & much more!!

You can make the effect look as “real” as possible, or make it totally abstract, & anything in between. Thanks to the impressive variety, styles, controls & tools, you can let your imagination run wild & create amazing pieces of digital art.

Thank you to everyone behind Matter! Your app has fueled my creativity, imagination, & my artwork. For real, you’re awesome!

corrected review!

Matter suddenly stopped rendering video clearly when I’m using a solid black or solid white background and using front reflection. The video plays fine on my iPad but when I export it to the camera roll then the rendered video is blurry. It wasn’t like this before. If I use a background with imagery then it renders fine. Go figure.

OK - Changing my review to 5 stars based on Kyle’s quick response. As Kyle pointed out, Matter’s video render resolution depends on the background image resolution. Since I was using a low resolution black background, the video rendered in low resolution. Live and learn! Thanks Kyle! You’re the best!
