Node Preview

Node Preview

Node Preview in Blender is a feature that allows users to preview the output of a specific node within the node editor. This real-time preview capability provides a dynamic way to assess the impact of individual nodes on the final rendering without having to navigate to the rendered view.

By simply hovering over a node and pressing Shift+Ctrl+Left Mouse Button, users can quickly visualize the effect of that particular node within the node editor itself. This can be particularly useful for fine-tuning materials, textures, and shader nodes, as it offers a more efficient way to evaluate and modify node setups directly within the context of the node editor.

Features of Node Preview

  • For each node, a preview thumbnail is rendered
  • On edits, all affected nodes are automatically updated
  • Previews are rendered in a background process to keep the Blender interface fluid and responsive
  • 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)
  • To show previews for packed images, the .blend file has to be saved to disk first, because they are loaded through linking from the .blend file
  • Thumbnails of image sequences are not updated when changing frames
  • IES nodes are currently not supported
