Thumbnail Background Color

Post by Cygon »


It's really useful that Blender saves a thumbnail of the model with each *.blend file and displays it via a shell extension.

In the earlier 2.6x versions (I think up to 2.62 or 2.63 maybe) the background of these thumbnails was white, which was perfect. Now (2.65 and 2.66 at least), it's black, which makes it hard to recognize the models in the thumbnails at all (upper left thumbnail):


I have searched the menus for an option to change the background color, browsed the changelogs and googled to see if anyone has mentioned this change before, but seems like it just happened.

Does anyone know how I can tell Blender to use white backgrounds in my thumbnails again?
