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.

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!

The first and the best

This is the first photography editing app that I used. I still use it almost every day, even though I probably have 20 Other art apps, I combine this one with many more to make awesome designs. I just love it. Very easy to learn. Good results first try. Learn more and more as you use it.

Now it's months later. I am still using the app as much as before. Right now I'm doing a series of the alphabet letters. Getting textures and colors and using them with this app. So many people think I have a professional designer. I just work with a terrific app.
