The Local DB is similar to the LiveDB in that it's accessible from the LiveDB tab in the Outliner. Instead of storing the files on the cloud, LocalDB stores the files on your disk. To save an OctaneRender® Nodegraph to the LocalDB, select it in the Nodegraph Editor and click "Save...". From the context menu, select LocalDB as the Location. You can also set the Category, Item Name, and Item Description (Figure 1).

To create a thumbnail image, right-click on the Node in the LocalDB list and click Make Thumbnail. A context menu displays controls for customizing the thumbnail (Figure 2).
