Create Material Preview Dialog
Bottom of the Page

(Material Editor): Compact Make/Play/Save Preview flyout (Make Preview)

The Create Material Preview dialog is displayed when you click Make Preview to preview an animated material. By default, the preview is saved in the \previews subdirectory with the name _medit.avi. You can use Save Preview to give the preview a different name so it won't be overwritten the next time you use Make Preview.
