ok, I made a quick picture showing my basic wish. I definetely see your point, the 'watermark'/HUD style doesn't play nice for faces, people, etc

basically I think it would be nice to put the coverart into the main aeon interface, as for now it is just positioned over the menubar but without any 'relation' to the rest of the interface

I try to think of another ways to present in at weekend Wink

I see what you mean.

For other places to put it, is something like this what you mean for integrating more with the skin..

They look a little weird to me lol, I think because I end up with the show name in too many places.
the last one it was I propose in other thread to put something like that like other flag, it look cool but I see what you mean too many references to the show maybe with another more simple theme it could look cool

ClearArt would probably also look very cool on top of episode thumbnails in the menu like that Nod

I think thats photoshop .. but not sure !
Here you go, hard to see on this background though :|

Can't that just be done with XBMC skinning-engine somehow do that there will be no need for duplicate copies?

Huh

If not then I suggest that you submit it as a feature request on trac and maybe jmarshall or someone else will add a such colour changing function capability for textures to the XBMC skinning-engine , so that they can be changes to any one single color.

to show what I mean, I was thinking to put on the bottom there with the rest of the flags maybe first on the left and move the source and network flag to the right a little.

Yeah it was just a quick photoshop mockup but I'm sure it could be done.

It would work well I think with my mod like you said if I removed the show title and episode ^ from there and put the clearArt in, I'll make a mockup in a while to see what that would look like.

nice!

I also propose that for movies like the one that have recognizable icons and symbols like Batman, Superman, Star Wars, James Bond(this one is already use) and a lot others.
Yeah good idea.

Also for example, I think here like you say just the 'House' logo would look better on it's own. (I mean if we were doing the pictures in white/grey like the flags), In colour it would look better with house himself in it too I think.)

yeah thats what I mean, like House the title it not just text its a logo you would recognized the House logo without Dr. house picture on it and would difference House logo from the word house like in home.
and this thread is getting off, maybe we could make a new post like clearArt spinoff "clearFlag" lol
Dammit I need this mod to happen now lol.

Yeah maybe start a new thread and continue discussing and developing it in there if you want to go for it. ClearFlags I like it lol.
clearArt Pack (add it in the first page)
