Asset Management

With the Asset Management, you can manage your libraries and add assets directly in Blender with automatic thumbnails creation. Compatible Blender 2.79b for now!


All your Assets in one place!

ASSETS- SCENES - MATERIALS - HDRIs  

The only Addon who creates thumbnails for you!

 

Thumbnail Generator

With the Thumbnail Generator, you can create different types of thumbnails: THUMBNAIL RENDER: The Addon generates the Thumbnail of your assets with the default scene. You can configure the shaders in the preferences and create a custom render. You can tweak everything, add an Ambient Occlusion(AO) shader, hide the floor, add a contour or use the shaders of your asset. 

THUMBNAIL OpenGL RENDER: The thumbnail uses the OpenGL rendering with Matcaps, Ambient Occlusion(AO), DOF etc ! This is the fastest way to add an asset to your library with a custom camera angle. You can use all the settings of the viewport, it’s simple and you will like it ;) 

THUMBNAIL IMAGE: You can use a picture from your disk or use the Render Result. 


Assets features

Linking: You can link objects or materials. 

Smart Import: The Asset Management place the asset on the selection! 

ASSET TO SELECTION: 

Nothing Selected: Asset will be placed at the center of the scene. 

Object(s) selected: Asset will be placed at the origin of the selected object(s). 

Face(s) selected: Asset will be placed on faces and will use normal orientations of those faces.   

 

REPLACE ASSETS: You can replace one or several assets by another, you can do this for linked assets too. The addon jeeps the orientation of the previous asset.

The Asset Management can be used with all the other add-ons on Blender like Hardops. You can also use it with other render engines since the Asset Management makes an append from the library to your scene. This append keeps all the data attached to your objects, shaders, textures, particles etc. You can create your library easily and use it directly!
