Node Preview enhances Blender’s shader workflow by adding rendered thumbnails above shader nodes.

Key features:

  • Rendered Thumbnails: Generates rendered previews for each shader node.
  • Automatic Updates: Refreshes thumbnails for all affected nodes after edits.
  • Background Processing: Maintains a responsive interface by rendering previews in the background.
  • Compatibility: Does not modify .blend files, ensuring scenes can be shared without issues.
  • High-Resolution Support: Adapts to Blender’s resolution scale feature for clear previews.
