Kodi Animation thread
@samfisher

The download link for the 2nd white animation (White / Horizontal / Straight) links to the wrong file

@Solo0815: you mean the long one right? Will probably do that tomorrow.

@sialivi: thanks, it's fixed now!

nah, but i found it a bit "static" with the step by step animations and thought combining these would keep the flow

I'd use any of the animations if it is WHITE -> BLACK Wink

Thanks a lot for this update...

Ehm...would it be possible to have a surround sound (e.g. 5.1)? Wink

Ok I made 4 new versions, black, white, black to white, white to black. I guess we have all the possibly needed versions now Smile

Hi,

This looks awesome. Can I set one of the above as my splash image? Is .gif accepted as a splash screen?

nope, no gif support on splash screen yet

Is it something in development? A built-in splash screen management system with support for all the common file types would be fantastic.

I've tried the Startup.xml/Home.xml skin hack to show a video file on startup but it doesn't look very professional -- you see Kodi first, then the video file, then back to Kodi.

Still have to try Frost's Intro Movie addon but it looks old and may not work. We'll see.

well, you know, the splash screen is the thing shown when Kodi is starting up - thus, it's shown in a very early stage when core parts and libraries are being loaded. Adding support for "all common filetypes" (what do you consider common file types, videos as well?) would result in the splash showing up way later in the startup process. So IMO best would be a Android like style, where you have a boot loop animation (gif, apng) that's followed by some intro video once everything necessary is loaded.

No it doesn't if done right.

For example here is my Startup.xml for Confluence

That does sound good and makes a lot of sense.

I've noticed you removed the following line from your Startup.xml:

Code:
<include>CommonBackground</include>

No-one mentioned that on the "official" thread. I tried it and it looks better but I still see some panel quickly slide in and out of the top right (probably the one that normally contains library update info). I guess this is as close to professional looking as it gets. Thanks for the tip.

Ah, I noticed what you did at first but I thought I'd picked up removing that from the official thread, I was trying various things as I wanted to try and suppress the video controls popping up on mouse movement as I was testing on the desktop pc in the study.

Of course we can, Nate!

Choose one "official" animation and give users the ability to upload a video to a folder that will substitute the vanilla animation.

Or upload a bunch of animations to a folder and random play on each boot. Or set boot animation in the UI, Or... damn! I'm dreaming... Big Grin

YES! THIS! Then we can use ALL of samfisher's wonderfully cool intros!
There have been a lot of really fine examples posted, but samfisher's fit exactly what I'd want for an intro -a little of that Kodi/XBMC wow-factor at start-up.

And if the hardworking devs figure out a good way to integrate it, wouldn't it be cool to have a setting pointing to a directory with intro videos that could play at randomly at start-up, as suggested by h.udo in the above post?! Rad.

Thanks to the developers for looking into this... cool idea.

Some skins allow for video intros, not sure if they are using an addon for that or not, but for example I'm using samfishers latest black video with arctic.zephyr and it looks amazing. Tho i'm pretty sure it doesn't allow for random intros which would be great.
