Is there an easy way to create new or refresh the scene thumbnails?

DAZ Studio Formats > My Library > My Scenes

I’ve tried loading the scene from the content library and via the file > open, however, that doesn’t always create a new thumbnail.  Same thing about using refresh on the folder holding the scene.

HI Jean_V smile

I’m not a Big DS user, but it sounds like the thumbnail creation may be triggered by saving the scene as a different name,. (a scene which doesn’t have a thumbnail image, would require one to be created for it )

Then you should be able to delete the old scene and thumbnail.

Hope it helps wink

A thumbnail is just a 91 pixel square PNG file.

Strange, mine rights a new image everytime I resave the scene. Yet another DS Oddity.

Thanks, I’ll just save under a different name. Much faster than rendering to create a 91 pixel square PNG file.
