Asset Management

by Pitiwazou in Scripts and Addons

Note: The addon will be updated to 2.8

Asset Management

With the Asset Management, you can manage your libraries and add assets directly in Blender with automatic thumbnails creation. Compatible Blender 2.79b for now!


All your Assets in one place!

ASSETS- SCENES - MATERIALS - HDRIs  

The only Addon who creates thumbnails for you!

 

Thumbnail Generator

With the Thumbnail Generator, you can create different types of thumbnails: THUMBNAIL RENDER: The Addon generates the Thumbnail of your assets with the default scene. You can configure the shaders in the preferences and create a custom render. You can tweak everything, add an Ambient Occlusion(AO) shader, hide the floor, add a contour or use the shaders of your asset. 

THUMBNAIL OpenGL RENDER: The thumbnail uses the OpenGL rendering with Matcaps, Ambient Occlusion(AO), DOF etc ! This is the fastest way to add an asset to your library with a custom camera angle. You can use all the settings of the viewport, it’s simple and you will like it ;) 

THUMBNAIL IMAGE: You can use a picture from your disk or use the Render Result. 


Assets features

Linking: You can link objects or materials. 

Smart Import: The Asset Management place the asset on the selection! 

ASSET TO SELECTION: 

Nothing Selected: Asset will be placed at the center of the scene. 

Object(s) selected: Asset will be placed at the origin of the selected object(s). 

Face(s) selected: Asset will be placed on faces and will use normal orientations of those faces.   

 

REPLACE ASSETS: You can replace one or several assets by another, you can do this for linked assets too. The addon jeeps the orientation of the previous asset. 

EDIT ASSETS: You can Edit an asset directly from the preview. That allows you to make a fast modification of your asset to have it exactly how it should be. The addon will save your current scene, open the asset scene and when you will save it, the addon will open your scene and your asset will be updated.

Compatible with other addon’s like Hardops, Carver, Speedflow etc

The Asset Management can be used with all the other add-ons on Blender like Hardops. You can also use it with other render engines since the Asset Management makes an append from the library to your scene. This append keeps all the data attached to your objects, shaders, textures, particles etc. You can create your library easily and use it directly!  

SPEEDFLOW AND CARVER COMPATIBILITY You can use Speedflow and Carver to make your assets and you can use those assets directly with Carver. Links :

    The quintessential "You don't know how much you use it ... until you don't have it." package. Hoping a 2.8 version comes... soon.

  • derreiko 4 months ago

    One of the most essetial Addons for me; Looking forward to v 2.8! :)

  • M.M 4 months ago

    The best addon for blender. I can not imagine working without him. You must have it.
    When it will be up to 2.8?

  • tofmusik94 6 months ago

    Thanks very much ! Very Useful ;-)

  • Steve Masterson 8 months ago

    Blender 2.79b and all works as expected, this is a terrific addon and crucial for workflow. I am new to Blender coming from Modo and Maya and have spend a bundle to bring Blender to have the workflow that I need, and if I could only keep one addon it would be this.

  • BlindBird 11 months ago

    Most useful addon for blender, just get it , can't live without it

  • Monkok about 1 year ago

    The addon itself is pretty useful, but seems like the author has abandoned it, as it was not updated since version "Compatible Blender 2.78a for now" (which it is not, considering user fixes needed after installation to make it work) and contains many bugs

  • papasmurf7777 about 1 year ago

    Awesome addon!!

  • mishecks over 1 year ago

    I haven't played with it too much but i like it so far, for what i'm using it for.

  • marco_105 almost 2 years ago

    Blender 2.78 – I just bought it and saw lot of bug appear in console. I install Screw-and-bolt, none thumbnails doesn't appear, i'm little disappointed... the idea still good one !
    You must to be more frank to say that is not a ending product. How can we acces to the update ? Otherwise, you put a line in the preferences to 'doc FR' which is an empty place actually.

    Great addon that works fine and save a lot of time!!!

  • markus3k almost 2 years ago

    Hello, if you want to make the thumbnailer work with 2.78b or 2.78c you need to change line 78 in /background_tools/generate_assets_thumbnail.py from bpy.context.user_preferences.system.compute_device_type to bpy.context.user_preferences.addons['cycles'].preferences.compute_device_type

  • bradnpx about 2 years ago

    Great concept, but way too buggy. Assets fail to add/render constantly, Thumbnails preference page reports error with no explanation, documentation vague and disjointed. Needs more work, would really love to see this improve because when it works it's great

  • Vavrinec Foltan about 2 years ago

    Crashes constantly when importing models. Mostly it crashes when rendering the thumbnail preview. Mac OS X. But has a lot of potential. And once loaded it is great.

  • Darek Zielinski about 2 years ago

    I'm not satisfied because I still encounter seriuos bugs in that addon

  • Jorge Losilla over 2 years ago

    It´s a huge timesaver specially for pro work.

  • apoll over 2 years ago

  • brent3d over 2 years ago
