Release -  [Public Preview Krypton] Lucid (aka. "Lucid-minimal" aka. "PreLucid" aka. aka.)
#1
Lucid RC1 Krypton (Updated) release.

A while ago i startet, Inspired by "silver87hun"'s Screens of his "Juci" with some Mockups and a Concept for a New Skin "Lucid". After i did the Mockups i then pretty quickliy decide to give it a go Skinningwise to see how the Ideas Looks on the Big Screen.

After several lines of Code this Skin is now pretty close to what i had in Minde and supports now different Scripts and Addons.

----
Now, after some Months of Coding im pretty Happy to offer you a first look in to "Lucid" and a Testversion available to download.

The Idea behinde Lucid was to Create a Modern Skin which is easy to setup and offers support for current Scripts and Addons.

You can choose between different Homescreen designs (Horizontal and Verical)


*******************************

Scripts and Addons which comes with the Skin:

• script.favourites
• script.skinshortcuts (alows you to customize the Homemenu, Submenu, Widgets, and for thows who like, also custom Addons in Home.)
• script.playalbum (alows you to Play a Album or a Song straight from the Album Info Dialog)
• script.extendedinfo (i included a lot of its functionality directly in to the Skin, as some of you might already knew from Skins like "Arctic zephyr" where i also borrowed some code.)
• script.skin.helper.service (just more to use, Images, labels, ..)
• script.image.resource.select (alows you to use dfifferent Weather Icons or Weather Fanart packs.)
• plugin.program.autocompletion (offers you "autocomplete" for the virtual Keybord -> needs Skinsetting)


Scripts and Addons which are supported by the Skin (needs manual Installation)

• globalsearch (alows you to search directly from the Home Menu for what ever you looking for)
• script.libraryeditor (allows you to edit ur Library right from the Infodialog, chanche genres and so on..)
• service.kn.switchtimer (allows you to set "switchtimers" from the PVR Infodialog, as soon as the script is installed you can set and manage your switchtimers in the "TV" section)
• service.nextup.notification (shows a notification for the next Episode -> you can set up in the Addon how it shuld act)
• script.artistslideshow (allows you to show Fanart of the Artist from the currently Playing Song -> needs Skinsetting after Installation)
• cinema.experience (allows you to show Trailer, Trivia, Sounddemos and much, much more before starting a Movie -> a Button in the "VideoInfoDialog" will show up.)
• script.artwork.downloader (allows you to download additional Artwork -> a Button in the "VideoInfoDialog" will show up.

(hope i got all)

Some special Features i would like to name:

This Skin offers a lot of Features, here i would like to point out some you might wont finde in other Skins.

1st: OnlineMusicBrowser





you can acces this Window in the Submenu from "Music". It alows you to browse thru Content from the "Soundcloud" and the "Mixcloud" - Addon in a different way. (You must have to have at least one of this two Addons installed)

2nd: Video Background

a small Video Preview with Backgroundvideo enabled:




Lucid offers a Lot of Background Settings, i Included more thamn 50!! pregiven Backgrounds to choose from, or simply choose your own.
You can also use "Weather Fanart" as Backgroung, or choose a Video (the Video can be in any Video Format Kodi supports. You can also choose a Folder with different Videos in it. As soon you start a Movie, the BG Video will stop, and start playing after you stop watching the Movie or TV-Show.)

Looks good mate. The home menu with the widgets reminds me a bit how I did it in BelloFredo. Like it.

Thanks.

Sadly thre isnt more/much Interest, did thout at least the Option to have a video as a background (loop) would catch some attention (as much as i knew this wasnt done before.)


However (maybe as a last Post in this treat) some Screens with a video playing in the back + option to "mix background with video" Enabled.

Currently it's very silent in the skinning section compared to the last months, no matter in which thread you are. Keep moving forward.

It's always hard to get attention to new skins and only the die hard forum visitors will jump in and comment. Just keep it up.
Problem with us helping to promote it would also get some angry users in case the skin is never finished/released. Sadly this is part of the process.
I'm sure we'll do another WIP skin promotion soon and could include it.


Having the video in German doesn't really help either Wink

Maybe if there was a alpha version for users to play with there would be more interest.

The skin looks amazing....please keep up the hard work.
