You are probably looking for VMware Converter which can p2v or v2v.

IMO: if you are creating a VM image which is a binary blob or image then
you are doing it wrong. Have the VM/server/desktop be a simple
next/next/next install and the incorporate a config management tool
(puppet/ansible/etc) to make it the way you like it. VM-as-code if you
will. This results in a reproducible thing instead of an unmanageable thing.
