I was just pondering some useful things I would like to see embedded in 3d files.
I currently don’t know much about the.blend filetype, but I was thinking of having human readable meta-data embedded in the .blend file.
The two key items I was thinking of was:
A thumbnail screenshot of the viewports at time of save. Viewable in either the blender file manager or other file managers if possible. Usable to quickly identify which scene you’re trying to find based solely on visual aspects.
Notes about the scene and possible statistics like poly count or number of frames in scene. Helpful for obvious reasons. Possible sorting by scene length, number of objects, polygon count, etc.
There are plenty of other things it could be used for and it possibly could already be in place.
Like I said, just pondering… Any information of how feasible or impossible this would be is very interesting to me. Also any ideas or flaws you see. Share them.
