Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork
Artwork Beef updated to 0.20.0.

This version includes more detailed configuration options for types of artwork to download, "only identify local files" options for each media group, and preferring artwork from one specific web service. In addition, when configured to prefer one specific web service, it will not mix multiple artwork of the same type (like "fanart") from both services, avoiding another bundle of duplicates.

There are also options for multiple "poster" images for movies, movie sets, and TV shows, and a new art type "keyart" for the same media types. "keyart" is a poster without text, useful as a separate item in a skinner's toolbox as it can be paired with a clearlogo or large text title elsewhere on the window, and without text it is less distracting in the background or half-obscured (like fanart with a different aspect ratio). "keyart" also supports multiple images and neither support saving to a subdirectory like "extrafanart".

Than I removed the old database links (referring to the previous random filenames), by running the remove option in Artwork Beef (remove artwork for mediatype - movies - extrafanart)

Than I started "Add Missing Artwork" for "Old and New Movies". It seems that Artwork Beef doesn't recognize the renamed images in the extrafanart folders. No new artwork has been applied to the database?

Where did I go wrong?
Open the context menu on a single movie that is affected by this, then "Manage..." then "AB: Add missing artwork". Then open Kodi's built in "Choose art" dialog and see if "fanart1" and "fanart2" and so on are filled with the new names. If that works, then add missing artwork for "all videos (new, old, and all in between)", not just old and new. If it didn't, then maybe the fanart limit in the add-on configuration is lower than you expect. With the new version that setting also applies to artwork added from the file system, while previously it was just for those added from web services. If still no luck, then I will need more details, including a debug log and artwork report.

I am a Dev for Media Companion and will be changing the naming of the extra fanart images back to fanart1.jpg etc, but for Movie set artwork, the user can select to store in the collection parent folder
ie:
Movie\Iron Man Collection\poster.jpg
Movie\Iron Man Collection\Iron Man (2008)\
etc
or store in a central folder with <movie_set_name>-poster.jpg etc
MovieSetArt\Iron Man Collection-poster.jpg
MovieSetArt\Iron Man Collection-clearlogo.png
Artwork Beef supports both, like Movie Set Artwork Automator. However, when using a parent/ancestor directory of the movies for set artwork, Artwork Beef requires that directory name exactly match the name as set in the Kodi library (made safe for the file system), which I don't think MSAA did.

I believe AB supports a central artwork folder.  The difference is MC doesn't use set sub folders and AD does.  Would be nice to have the option to use either.

KeyArt....Fantastic, Working like charm.
Multiimage for all art working too....briliant

With keyart views are clean and good organized

A central movie set folder is supported. See the Artwork Beef documentation.

Artwork Beef will identify movie set artwork from either, but will only download new artwork to a subdirectory named for the movie set. I think this could be useful in the future as a place for some other information as well, like the artist information folder Dave added to Kodi 18 Leia. I may still add an option to change the way new artwork is saved, though.

Looks good. You might still display the 'poster' image for the unfocused ListItems in a strip like that, since their logo or clearart aren't visible like the focused item.

I guess the new keyart feature is skin dependend. Wich skins support it and have already implement it?
Is it only for new Kodi Leia Skin versions or also for Krypton Skins?

@rmrector.

I don't use images from the web, I only use images from my external HD.

Even the latest version of AWB that should support extrafanart from the local filesystem, won't apply the extrafanart images (set to 20/maximum for movies and series).

I followed the steps you mentioned one by one, but the latest version AWB doesn't apply them. (Kodi 17.6 on Android) All movies and episodes have extra fanart images in a seperate extrafanart folder. I'll provide a debug log and AWB report a.s.a.p.

@chrissix Angelinas may have an update for Aeon MQ6, but I doubt many otherwise. Earlier previews of Aeon 2 were designed for keyart, but implemented them in a different way. Skins for Krypton can also use these images.

Hi. I have been using the AB addon for a short time in KODI 18 with the Estuary MOD V2 skin and it is amazing.
Unfortunately I do not get used to the skin so try to go back to the Aeon MQ7 in KODI 17.

So far what I did is disable AD addon downloads and install AB addon.


Now I am creating a new library and until now AB addon works wonderfully by downloading all the images.
The only thing that I could not achieve is that they enter into rotation within the windows of movies and tv shows.

try installing the script.arwork.helper-lastest, but without luck.

I've been reading Fun without addons, but I honestly do not know where I have to add those lines of code.

I hope I have explained the situation in detail.

Thanks for the addon and for the help

Can you explain what you mean by this? Is it an article? Can you provide a link please.

@Kutzaray Artwork Helper and the "Fun without add-ons" doc is meant for skin developers to implement, not so much end users.

There isn't a particularly simple way for users to switch over a skin from the "extrafanart" directory, with or without an add-on; it depends on how the skin implemented the original extrafanart.

  Thanks rmrector. I know that the content of the github page is for software developers, I am a simple php programmer, so sometimes I managed to understand some of the code and be able to add the necessary lines.

Thanks for answering.
