I run my xbox in HD 720p on a 32inch tv and it looks fine I don't have binocular vision so tiny little jaggies don't bother me and using some of the new skins like horizonz and mediastream fanart has to be halved or films don't play or worst case the xbox crashes if I use PM3-HD I can use bigger but that skin isn't that nice looking in my opinion.

here are screenshots of the fanart in the background they look fine.

Nearly all poster art is HD as the xbox lowers them when converting them to tbn they work fine and look good ( Custom TBN Rez setting 300 )

Hey Crash......You made sure not to add the 1967 Casino Royale to the 2006 Casino Royale, right?


- crash123 - 2008-12-26

Haha no i definitely got them in their right places. Laugh

Hi,

If anyone would like a challenge a fanart for the TV series Back of the Y would be great. I'm not even sure if it would be possible though.

Thanks

Back of the Y is posted.

All the underlined ones already have fanart. I highly Recommend you use billyad2000's XBMC Media Companion to scrape your fanarts as it does a lot better job of scraping fanart than XBMC's own scrapers and if there are multiple fanarts you can choose which ones you want.

I see you have a thing for the underdog, eh?

I'll see what I can come up with for the remaining movies. Wink

smcnally75 -

I uploaded the art made from your Screenshots to TMDB. I did ones for yellowbeard, what's the worst..., vampire in brooklyn, soul survivors (didn't have a TMDB entry, make one, and I'll upload), Mercury Rising, Ride The Bullet, Radio, Orange County, Meatballs, and Empire Records. I tried for "Virus", but couldn't get a quality level I was comfortable with uploading to the general masses. So, I made a generic one instead. It's not bad, but it's not actually from the movie either. Meh...

To the other fellow who upped the list...I'm working on yours now, but my GF is sick today, so now I've got to attend to her...I'll see what I can do yet. I did make backdrops for Uptown Girls and Under The Tuscan Sun already.


- smcnally75 - 2008-12-29

Thanks digitalhigh. I've added the following to TMDB. I couldn't find the fanart for Riding the Bullet (checked on this page http://themoviedb.org/movie/12483)

Soul Survivors
What's the Worst That Could Happen?
Meatballs


Image Quality - JohnWPB - 2008-12-30

I am new to this particular forum, but I just wanted to mention something, being a graphics designer myself....

When it comes to image quality, the bigger the better! Images can always be reduced to what ever you want. Take a 1920 x 1080 image and reduce it to 800 x 600 and it will look perfect!

Now try to take an 800 x 600 image and enlarge it to 1920 x 1080, and it will look like crap. Nod

I say have the images at the maximum aloud on imdb, and if anyone wants to reduce them to save a few cpu cycles or use a bit less memory for a particular system, then so be it. There are TONS of batch image converters out there that you can point to a directory full of HI-Res images, and batch convert them down to what every res you want.

Someone mentioned it looking fine on a 32" TV. I am sure that it does, but I can bet it would not look that great on my HD 65" TV Laugh

Graphics and photography 101:
You can always reduce with no loss of quality, but you can not enlarge without losing quality.

I couldn't agree with you more. And I was gonna say something to the guy with the 32" TV, but didn't see the point in even keeping up the argument.

The biggest problem with 1080 graphics is finding source images that are of a good enough resolution. Even with the 720x ones I do, I often have to upscale the source to make it work. Upscaling from 1024 - 1280 isn't too noticeable, but adding an extra 900 pixels...that's a bit much.

So, I agree, and make 1080 res gfx wherever possible, but with older images, cranking them up that high just looks bad...
