1) new movie comes in and is scraped with Universal Media Scraper
2) run Artwork Downloader to gather any non-standard art to be found (this only writes the remote URLs to the database, since you prevent AD from saving to local media folders)
3) run the Three Amigos to: download those remote URL links to local media folders (both std and non-std artwork), naming them with Movie-Name-prefix and then load the texturecache with ALL the just-downloaded artwork PLUS any local artwork saved in the media folders by hand

Rinse and Repeat as new movies come in.

Yes, that's pretty much it:

1) Scrape new movies
2) Run mklocal.py to pick up any local non-standard artwork (ie. logo.png, clearart.png) that I may have manually created alongside the new movies scraped in #1
3) Run AD to find logo/clearart for movies that don't already have such artwork - don't allow AD to download anything
4) Run mklocal.py again to download any non-standard local artwork that AD may have found in step #3

I use Ember for movies - this works for Posters and Fanart. I manually add logo.png and clearart.png, usually from fanart.tv.

Thanks again for help and advice.

What about using tags? Adding <tag>Ed Wood</tag> to an NFO should create an "Ed Wood" tag which you can use to filter movies.


Once you've created your tags you can even query them using texturecache.py - the following will dump your Ed Wood and James Bond items:
texturecache.py jd tags "ed wood or james bond"
