Hi all!

Pur the files in the folders you can find in the path map. Only the .lua file you should do in the application package folder.

Hi Bruno.

If you are using Fusion 9.0.2 you can try using the version of Cryptomatte v1.2 that is provided by the We Suck Less forum's "Reactor" package manager tool. I think that approach might be an easier Cryptomatte installation process for you and should provide less headaches then the manual installation approach. :)

You can download and install the free Reactor tool here:

Once Reactor is installed select the Reactor > Open Reactor... menu item.

Then in the Reactor package manager window, look on the left side of the screen for Cryptomatte in the Tools > Matte Category section.

P.S. If you do use the Reactor installation approach for adding Cryptomatte to your Fusion system please make sure to remove any of the previous Cryptomatte files from your earlier manual install attempt. Thanks.

Return to Fusion
