Anyway, this script will import an image into C4D and automatically create a material with the image in the luminance and alpha channels of the material, and then create a plane with -z orientation and apply the material to it. Basically, it's a way to import a bitmap image into Cinema's 3d space without having to do all the manual labor.
If you haven't installed external scripts before, just:
- Open the script manager
- Click 'File' menu and 'Import'
- Find the CSC file and load it
- Once it's loaded, you can click-drag the little icon in the upper left corner of the script manager and drop it somewhere in your layout
- Save your layout
Here's the link:
Edit: In my original post above I neglected to mention that the plane created by this script has the same dimensions as the image you select, which is one of the best things about it.
