Overlay - Command Plugin[v1.3, C4D R12 - R15]

This plugin is a little helper. It will assign the Material with the name 'Overlay' to every object in a hierarchy or to all objects in the document.

  • If exactly one object is selected, everything below (including the selected object) will be assigned the 'Overlay' material.
  • If no object is selected, everything will be assigned an 'Overlay' material.


The Material 'Overlay' will be created, if no Material with that name exists. The 'Overlay' Texture-Tags can also be deleted/assigned/copied manually. If several 'Overlay' Materials are on the same object, successive calling of the command will remove them "layer" by "layer".

Changes 1.4:
  • R14 Compatible
Changes 1.3:
  • Also put overlays on any object which has a phong-tag or already a texture-tag assigned (even if it is a Null-Object...). This is just another "hint" for the Overlay Command, where *also* to put an Overlay Material (ie. not a restriction, but more objects will get the Overlay Material).
