Object masks not working for scatter objects?

First, the new Scatter Object in C4DtoA 3.1.0 is just brilliant - fast and easy to use!! Goodbye Mograph surface cloner!

But I can't seem to get an Object Mask tag working on a Scatter Object to get an alpha mask? Scatter works with Cryptomatte so no immediate problem, but Object Masks are sometimes quicker to use.

Or am I maybe doing something wrong? Help?

Cheers. I'd glad you like it! : )

It's a bug actually. The mask is created with a wrong object name. If you use a custom name in the Object Mask tag, it should work fine.
