"ClearArt" concept - overlay type artwork for ex. 'episode poster/fanart on paused' - reaven - 2009-05-26 00:06
I have come up with an entirely new type of artwork concept for XBMC skins, I will name this new artwork concept "ClearArt", to use on for example my AEON MOD when you paused, or request info on the currently playing TV Show and you get up the OSD (On Screen Display).
NEW update: PM3 skin support
Toggle "ON" clearArt
Toggle "OFF" showArt(regular tvshow thumbs)
INFO Display works on movies also
Help is wanted to make more of these ClearArt images for people to download (and to mod other skins to also support ClearArt)!
* UPDATE! All files updated and working, also added a new toggle setting to enable this MOD on or my other one (toggle "ON" for ClearArt, or toggle "OFF" for normal posters.
*These are all real working screenshots from my AEON MOD, and not mockups.
This is currently for the DialogSeekBar.xml to see the info when I pause a movie, you can add it to the DialogFullScreenInfo.xml to access it via " i " or info.(see the mod page).
Update xml's to include toggle and make it work
Downloads for Aeon support:
ClearArt Gallery(individually): here
NEW FIX DialogSeekBar.xml: here (Create a new folder under (Aeon\media\) and name it < clearart > drop all your ClearArt there).
Customization.xml: here (To make the toggle works when off, create another folder under Aeon\media\) and name it < showart > drop all your regular show thumbs "Fanart with titles" there like this ones)
clearArt Pack (all clearArts): HERE
Quote:*All ClearArt images filename should match the TV Show name, the same for showArt.
Downloads for PM3 support:

For the most recent showThumbs(regularArt) and/or clearArt go HERE

I think a watermark would be more classy, and better suited to the skin... but that's just me.

I like the idea

Pretty cool idea, might be a bit of extra work to get all of your shows looking like this. Perhaps just the logo? Cutting round characters and other elements would be a little time consuming?
edit: then you could place a network / studio logo on the other side to balance it out.

What are the size and conditions of the image files ?

Those aren't really the same thing as this, probably best to keep it in it's own thread instead of flooding the wide poster thread.
