The blender-media-viewer is a Blender Application Template that makes Blender usable as a Video-Player, Image and Text-Viewer and Review tool.
It came to life because we wanted to have a player that could seamlessly browse media files with the arrow keys for our weekly presentations at the studio no matter if they are video, images or image sequences. It became apparent that having review tools fit well in the scope of this project, so they got added.
One important aspect of the blender-media-viewer is to be able to use it without your mouse. Make sure to read the shortcuts section.
This Application Template reduces the Blender UI to a bare minimum to remove all elements that are not needed. It ships with its own add-on and keymap which add the functionality to make it usable as a media viewer.
Note: The blender-media-viewer requires at least Blender 3.1!
Otherwise download the project at the top of this post.
Blender expects Application Templates in these folders:
In the root project folder you will find the 'blender_media_viewer' folder.
blender_media_viewer folder in one of these directories or create a sym link to it.
