In which of all the MODs and versions of Aeon can I see what you are asking for?

Ok, I know the "View" what do you find so good in it to say is the best "showcase" view?

the 3D style coverflow and the layout / animation is what I have fond memories of. dont get me wrong , Night & Purity MOD is my day to day rock steady the best that I love, But I kind of had the sweet spot for "that" showcase view.I guess Aeon MQ2 does have that but just for that particular style I wouldn't want to change my skins NO way.

I have the idea of doing a real 3d coverflow, I already experimented with the animation and some volume construction, but it's gonna be some hard work if even possible to pull it completely. I don't see Aeon showcase as much 3d, it needs volume to me.
Anyway, rest assure I have some real 3d animation planed among others, It might take some time, but I'll get there.
P.D.: This last days I've done a lot of work with code "cleanup", added/fixed trailers windows/text to all possible views (including programs), and some others.
I wanna drastically improve List view, so that's me next in list, is the worst view of all and I've being postponing it since ages...

Excellent , if I may be bold so as to suggest if you could look at this "wiiflow"( it is so smooth & stunning & implemented on a Wii!! ) for if nothing else just inspiration.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GfA_15sUyc
Thanks ! really appreciate your hard work !

Already know WiiFlow and it's nice some times, many others is excessive all that spinning. Anyway, the way WiiFlow works is very different, so accomplishing that kind of animations will involve much more skill and ingenuity.
Some things that are in that views of WD that I've already though of are progressive rating image instead of numbers used now if possible and audio subtitle flags.
About the views, I don't digg them, grid/frame layout is crappy design. The eye can see symmetry, balance and harmony without lines to guide it. Guiding lines and rigid underling textures only limits views, work space and ingenuity, they have no place in a media composition. Books don't have rows, a billboard don't have little squares every 5 words or 2 images, paintings don't have grids or "lineas de fuga" (don't know how to express this in english) , walls don't have squares draw with signs "place painting here",... . The absence of them in Night is one of the reasons why is so good skin to me and I'll never add a guide line or rigid underling texture, that's just poor design/art.
With this I'm just trying to make clear what I'll never add or modify to the skin and why, not that you are asking or anything, just wanted to make it clear.
