No problem on the video. I was hoping it wasn't some bizzare feature in the skin.
Darn it. You posted another video, but I have to wait until I get home because work seems to pick and choose what hosts it doesn't agree with.

Nada. The only real delay occurs when I try to look at then entire unfiltered song list. Considering as how I've got over 17,000 files in my music library, that's not bad.

One of the possible views for TV Shows.
The playlist can be toggled as well...it's not required to be onscreen.

It looks very nice but I would suggest fading the fanart a little or doing something to make it feel a little less busy. I, at least, feel a bit overwhelmed with so much stuff going on on screen at once.
EDIT: on a second look, maybe fading out the fanart isn't the best choice, but i do feel like it could use something? Maybe a little empty space would help. But then again, maybe i'm the only one that feels this way
movie library concept screens - keeganl - 2009-02-05 21:35
So here is what I am thinking about for the movie library. We're trying to keep you guys in the loop on what is going on with development. Digitalhigh seems to be doing a much better job than myself, so here is what was just sent over to Digital. The first screen is the movie library list and the second is an information panel. We have not come to a decision on whether or not the information panel will pop up automatically like aeon, or if it would be accessed on a button press, so sound off on your opinions. They are always welcomed. Enjoy the screens!

Or maybe just have one row of episode images?
The playlist and now playing info are both optional. And the panel with the episode information slides out when you hover on the episode. Here's a picture while just scrolling through eps:
Edit: Also, which of these do you guys prefer?

I like the 2nd image better (the one with the list on the left and selected item info in the middle).

I like the 2nd one too. The first one seems really busy and goes against the rest of the skin.
I have a request which you may or may not be interested in doing... When I'm looking for a movie all I'm really interested in seeing is the title, the fanart, and the cover. So if you take the second screenshot (the one of tdk), remove everything in the middle and put the dvd cover under the list. Kind of like how the artists view is.
Fanart view in PM3.HD does this really well, except that it covers a lot of the fanart.

So you want a poster view and an info view? The thought behind the 2nd pic was something like "you're scrolling down the list of names, when you stop, this display comes from off screen." What I could try doing is putting the poster at the bottom-left under the list like you suggested, then have the animation to slide the poster and info from the side after a delay. I'd then add a flag to the "settings" menu that would toggle this animation.
How does that sound?
How large would you like to see the poster? About the size it is in the concept?

I like both of the screens, but I was curious as to how the first one seemed to busy, when it actually has less on the screen than the second one?
This is how it would work. You would scroll down a regular list on the left, then you could either have a button press assigned to slide the list out and bring the movie information into the screen and then press it again and the information slide off the screen and the list would return. The other option being, that the information would slide into view on hover. You would stop on a title in the list and then the animation would begin by removing the list and then bringing the movie information into view just like aeon does.
As I said I like both screens, so maybe they could both make the final skin, so everyone can have a little choice.
