RenderDoc 1.8 has Compressonator support

RenderDoc now supports Compressonator Core API with its latest version 1.8!

When associated with DDS files, RenderDoc generates thumbnails for DDS formats and displays them in Windows® Explorer. Compressonator Core provides functions for compressing and decompressing DDS files. This is used to convert various DDS formats to bitmap format to display them as thumbnails in Windows® Explorer. The thumbnail is also shown in the preview window if enabled.
