I tried again the cover tricke template with the fourth season of Eurêka (only 10 episodes)

the size of every jpg generated is 80ko (low quality and 1280x720)

 

and....

It's very very very very slow :smileysad:

Then i deduce, the hub has a problem to render thumbnails with 1280 X 720 dimension when placed a single folder.

Else, single sheets display quite fast!

 

That's awful, for such a device which has so much potential :smileyfrustrated:

perhaps this problem  can be resolved with a new firmware?

I just hope someone from WD read this post!

Hmmm yes it looks like the Hub has issues when you have multiple files in one folder....

 

I don't use this method for movies BUT for tv series i totally understand why this is better...As if you have a complete series you can easily generate the cover tickle sheets for the entire season

 

I have not tested multiple sheets myself so i will do so and see what can be done.....

 

 

Quick question do you have the backdrops enabled or disabled ?

i modify the xml to not have backdrop loading. Only the jpg

with a sad result...

 

default  background  too

 

 

 

I hope WD will manage folder xml in the future

i've totally rip off the backdrops...the same happens

The problem is when you have multiple sheets in one folder.. it lags!

normal sized thumbnails work well.

i'm quite dissapointed...

I Will try to update the tutorial by latest this weekend with the new thumbgen!

 

Anyway for those who like the transparent moviesheets, with backdrops appearing/rotating/dissapearing..

generate the xml file via the hub or use theRoggy's tool..

 

or you can generate the xml with thumbgen but then you have to manually edit the file and add <backdrop> tags...

And Do as said in the tutorial in the first post. (Don't forget about the renaming of the .png file)

 

For those who want only a static background, generate the moviesheet as a .jpg file with a fanart/backdrop from thumbgen itself!

 

:smileywink:
