Datablock Previews in .blend Files
rB8d37aaeca1f9d extends and make useful again our .blend file datablocks preview system, it:
- Adds preview to Object, Group and Scene IDs, along with some basic pyscripting to generate such previews.
- Exposes ID previews to RNA.
Basic previews handling is in File→Data Previews menu. And RNA allows pretty much every one to write e.g. a small addon running before file save to generate your own previews as you want.
