I would like everyone to give their thoughts on things like dimensions and such. The current possible ways of implementing studio flags are hacky and time consuming to say the least, a proper way is much needed. Maybe we could come to some sort of consensus in advance.
I have to agree with CCMatrix...vector sounds like a good idea, because it doesn't need dimensions. All we'd have to do is decide how much of a percentage of the "frame" should be blank so that all logos occupy the same space.
My thoughts on how to get it to work in conjunction with TMDB would be to simply have a studio entry. That entry has the logo stored to it. The entry would also be linked to "alternative names" (20th century fox, twentieth century fox, etc). Then we just store one SVG file for all studio names that use that logo, and link it to the movie.
Then, when XBMC or MIP or UMM or whatever program you're using to scrape hits a movie, it stores an image ID or something for that studio logo.
SO, instead of downloading the logo over and over again for each movie, it gets downloaded once into a folder of all studio logos...and then XBMC database simply links to that image.
Sounds the easiest to me...
