_generate ( Resource resource, Vector2i size ) virtual const

Texture2D

bool

_handles ( String type ) virtual const

Method Descriptions

  • bool _can_generate_small_preview ( ) virtual const

If this function returns true, the generator will call _generate or _generate_from_path for small previews as well.

By default, it returns false.


Generate a preview from a given resource with the specified size. This must always be implemented.

Returning an empty texture is an OK way to fail and let another generator take care.

Care must be taken because this function is always called from a thread (not the main thread).


Generate a preview directly from a path with the specified size. Implementing this is optional, as default code will load and call _generate.

Returning an empty texture is an OK way to fail and let another generator take care.

Care must be taken because this function is always called from a thread (not the main thread).


  • bool _generate_small_preview_automatically ( ) virtual const

If this function returns true, the generator will automatically generate the small previews from the normal preview texture generated by the methods _generate or _generate_from_path.

By default, it returns false.


Returns true if your generator supports the resource of type type.
