Discovered Yesterday the Code for Creating 'Reflections' on Thumbnails...
Could be a solution to the PNG issue. (I use PNG for Reflections and Round Corners)
Worked today on modding 2 Views in Aeonish Theme using Reflections and Round Corners with .... JPEG ONLY
(All other Views can be moddified using this procedure)
Yes, this works for FOLDERS as well .
NOTE: These are actual Dvd Recoder Captured Screenshots of POSTER JPEG IMAGES.
In this TEST...
NO MOVIESHEETS WERE USED
NO THUMBGEN GENERATION WAS USED
NO PNG GRAPHICS WERE USED
The code will work with 'Moviesheets' but i just wanted to try Posters first.
What's the Code/Trick ?
(Vertically Inverts an Image .. then a Diffuse Layer in the Theme creates the Fading Effect)
(A Small Overlay for Thumbnails in the Theme creates the illusion of Rounded Corners)
Code was discovered in the "Blockbuster" XMLs ... credits to Western Digital
HERE IS A ROUGH (WIP) POSTER BETA DEMO:
AE REFLECTION Theme Demo.rar is the modified theme files for JPEG 'Reflections' in Gallery and List Views
Movie Poster Demo.rar are sample Movie Posters and Movie XML Files
Here's a Quick Video of Local Backdrops using Modified Gallery View XML Code.
Once the Backdrop is Displayed if you Quickly Tap and Hold Down the Navigation Arrow Buttons the Backdrop will not change.
If you however, slow down your button presses or stop on a movie, then the New Backdrop will load.
Video Demo use's Brightly Dark by bg1 Movie Sheets. (Not my creation, credits to the Original Author)
(I did however, fix a Runtime error in the Template.. Variable was %DURATION% it should be %RUNTIME% also moved the Media Flags Verticaly by 10 pixels)
Gallery Demo Package
( Gallery Black Outline - Theme for Hub/SMP 1st Pic)
( Gallery Clear Case - Theme for Hub/SMP 2nd Pic)
( Demo Movie Folder - with Sheets and Thumbnails)
(Brightly Dark Template by bg1 - Thumbgen Template with Minor Corrections and Alterations)
