Best explanation I've seen so far.

OK, tried everything to get Movie Fanart to work properly and I think I've managed to get it closer to fully working...
One question though... why does the next/previous listitem's fanart display for a millisecond after i move away from that listitem... isn't fanart only supposed to load when "movie info" is displayed? besides that... I think I'm a bit more happy it's working a little bit better now, so i'm happiesh!

That's not an issue I've experienced. In terms of skin xml and how it interacts with the engine, it's actually impossible for a piece of fanart to remain visible when the listitem loses focus, because the listitem.fanart object ceases to exist.

It's true... it's really odd that the next/previous listitem's fanart gets shown for that millisecond... it's like it's giving us a sneak peak or something... anyways...
would be nice if we could specify a single backdrop to sit on the background of showcase view without losing multiple backdrops on the aeon main page... and maybe, but i think this is pushing it... a fade out effect on a listitem's fanart, just think it would make things even more pretty

Duncan, is it possible to have fanart appear instantly when you highlight a film, rather than waiting for the info to pop up?
- djh_ - 2008-07-30 16:41
Possible in that it judders into view while the loading interferes with the transition animations of the Showcase list. Basically, the loading of any backdrop will murder whatever's going in the foreground, be it a wraplist scroll or a zoom animation. That's why there are controls in place to stall the load until everything else has finished. Removing them would be... well, you've heard the one about the Twinkie in Ghost Busters, right?

Almost as bad as crossing the streams then?

Dogs and cats, mate. Living together.

Twinkie in Ghost Busters... LOL!!!!
Anyways... what about that single backdrop option? It could be set to a universal picture, and it would definately save on memory when that transition happens, which sometimes, timed perfectly, can stop fanart from loading... yipes!!!

Is there a guide on using ifranview for correcting the images for a 720p display, I had a quick go with the batch command, and it left the images being a much larger filesize, 720p, but blocky as hell :|
