Screenshot Wizard

The Screenshot Wizard helps you quickly make icons of any 3D model.

Accessing the Wizard

The Screenshot Wizard is designed to make icons of 3D models. The recommended workflow is to open a 3D model prefab in the Unity Editor before accessing the wizard.

The Screenshot Wizard can be opened by clicking Tools in the menu bar, and selecting AnyRPG > Wizard > Screenshot Wizard.

Making an Icon

By default, the screenshot wizard will show a white indicator square in the scene view window. This square represents the size and contents of the image that will be saved to disk.

You can adjust the background of the image, and the lighting that will be used when the screenshot is taken, but those settings will not show in the scene view. You may have to take a few screenshots to get the settings just right. A full list of the settings can be found below.

It is recommended to experiment with the rotation of the item to ensure the most distinct or unique feature takes up the full frame of the size indicator preview.

Once you are satisfied with the settings, click the Create button and the image will be saved to disk.

Don't forget to open the saved image in the inspector and set the Texture Type to Sprite (2D and UI) so you can use the image as an icon.
