This addon displays rendered thumbnails above Cycles shader nodes.
Required OS: Windows 10, Ubuntu 18.04/19.10/20.04, or macOS (Catalina or newer)
Required Blender version: 2.80, 2.81, 2.82, 2.83, 2.90, 2.91 or 2.92
Blender 2.93 will be supported once it is out of beta.
For each node, a preview thumbnail is rendered
On edits, all affected nodes are automatically updated
Previews are rendered in a background thread, so the Blender interface stays fluid and responsive at all times
No changes are made to the .blend, others without the addon can still open your scenes without problems
High-resolution displays supported (works with Blender’s resolution scale feature)
