    Search & filter for the MM media list and for Texture inputs

    Hi,

    It can be cumbersome to find the media you're looking for, when you have a lot of Materials, ISFs, Video files, or images in a given project.

    It would be great if Madmapper had a basic search function, at the top of the Media list (say, above the media types). If any text is entered in that search bar, then any media with a name *not* matching the filter would become hidden - whether the media is being displayed as a list or as thumbnails. This would be a big help!

    This kind of search filter would also be massively helpful *inside* of the drop-down menu you get when selecting Texture inputs (say, within the controls for ISF or Material). I see myself using custom effect/filter shaders in Madmapper more and more, where those shaders just transform a texture input, but the current drop-down menu for those texture inputs does not make this easy - especially since you don't have control over how that texture list is sorted.

    Adding search filters to (A) the main media list and (B) the texture input drop-down would make Madmapper a much more powerful media server!

    Thanks for your consideration!
    -Jason

    we should definetly spend some time polishing the media bin/handling section of madmapper.
