Why imagefiles as planes suck?

So, I do alot of photomodeling and I always use a image background on the camera in conjunction with images on orthogonal images.

I have to say, The image plane is gona suck because is always visible and can’t be set as background on the active camera…

How am I supposed to make even a motion tracking scene without a background image on the camera?

We’ll have to see how this task https://developer.blender.org/T51366 shapes up. I too am hoping for good ortho-only image plane options etc. I hope they remember for the beta in August…

Not true, there is nothing preventing user from turning visibility of them on and off as any other object.
