Generates game-ready transparent textures from asset thumbnails. Perfect for inventory systems!
This plugin allows you to export blueprints, static meshes, and skeletal meshes to transparent game-ready textures with the click of a button. Perfect for inventory icons, item icons, whatever else you need!

How to use

If you want to configure the aforementioned thumbnail generation options, or add another export preset to the content browser menu, then look there.

The ExportThumbnail node can be used for automating any sort of thumbnail creation with editor scripting. For example, you could lookup assets by type using the asset registry and automatically create thumbnails for all assets of that type.
