Do as Milhouse says. If you still have trouble, also try putting a .jpg in the "Iron Man Collection" folder called "Iron Man 2008-poster.jpg" and run Movie Set Artwork Automator.

Disc Art = Certain views of MQ5 aren't coded to show disc art (i.e. Multiplex) so pick a different view like "Right List" to see if the artwork is working. Also the settings above in the view has toggles to enable/disable showing discart/logo/clearart. Make sure they are enabled.

Movie set info = make sure you have the latest ExtendedInfo Script.

I added the code to Multiplex view below to show the DiscArt:

I don't know, are you expecting Movie Set Artwork Automator to download artwork for you? That's not what it does - you need to put the artwork in the folders for it to find, it won't download the movie set artwork for you.

No, I expected artwork downloader to do that for me.

I am trying to get low list with disc art coming out of the side of the case with movie info on side when point over disc. I've seen it said that to achieve this you must run artwork downloader followed by extended info script followed by movie set artwork Automator. When it did not work after doing all these was when I then started reading about how the folder should be organised and how the files should be labeled. If artwork downloader is not going to give me artwork in correct format is their somewhere else I should be looking?

Many thanks.

Try asking in the Artwork Downloader thread, it should work. Or use an external media manager to grab your artwork, such as Ember.

Artwork Downloader will work for singles movies, etc., but for Movie Sets, you have to download the poster, fanart, logo, clearart, etc. manually and rename them and put in the correct folder as discussed above, THEN run Movie Set Artwork Automator.

Ah yes, good point - Artwork Downloader (or Ember for that matter) won't work for sets/collections.

I think that on new Ember 1.4 beta you can organize and download movie sets artwork.
