Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork

I've always understood poster and fanart needed the file name convention, which is what I prefer Makes it easy to sort, batch copy or otherwise deal with when each file has it's own unique name rather than hundreds all being the same. This is how I believe it would be awsome for Kodi to recognize any extra art as well.

As I've seen in many skins the use of 3 specific extra art items seems almost integrated into Kodi across a wide spread of installations. I'd love to make my life simpler by having these 3 arts automatically scraped by Kodi when I scrape a new movie or re-scrape and existing one. Settings within the artwork section of Kodi to specify how this is handled would allow those who don't use/care for the extra art to not have to worry about them. I manage all my art personally before I ever scrape into Kodi and currently create 2 versions of these 3 extra art so both Kodi and AD will recognize them in the manners in which they work. It always takes additional steps beyond just scraping the new or completely locale information media into my library. I feel this should be able to be accomplished easier.

thanks for your info. Once I'm donw my current library clean-up process I will look into how AB works and if that solves any of my concerns.
