I tried adding your line to my code, and it did not change anything.
I also tried to find an existing <animation effect="slide" concerning the Plot but did not find one.
this is my code:
Code:
<control type="textbox">
                        <posx>1</posx>
                        <posy>-20</posy>
                        <width>1270</width>
                        <height>215</height>
                        <font>font-28</font>
                        <align>justify</align>
                        <textcolor>grey</textcolor>
                        <shadowcolor>black</shadowcolor>
                        <pagecontrol>9999999999</pagecontrol>
                        <label>$INFO[ListItem.Plot]</label>
                        <autoscroll time="2000" delay="12000" repeat="8000">Skin.HasSetting(AutoScroll)</autoscroll>
                    </control>
Help!

yes, you should add the fade animation to the textbox control.

if it's currently sliding, then there's got to be a slide anim somewhere in the code.

Ronie,

I have been trying to add the plot information to my movies in Eden Beta 1/2 using the information described in previous posts and not having much success doing so. Here is what I have done.

Before changes to View-Fanart.xml file:
Code:
    <include name="Fanart-Videos_Extras">
        <control type="group">
            <visible>Control.IsVisible(50) + [Container.Content(Movies) | Window.IsVisible(VideoPlaylist)]</visible>
            <include>Window_OpenClose_Visible_FanartInfo_Animation</include>
            <animation effect="slide" end="0,35" time="0" condition="Skin.HasSetting(Enable_Movies_Media_Flags)">Conditional</animation>
            <include condition="Skin.HasSetting(HateTransparency)">T-Underlay14</include>
            <control type="image">
                <posx>0</posx>
                <posy>550</posy>
                <width>875</width>
                <height>158</height>
                <texture border="10">underlay.png</texture>
                <visible>!Skin.HasSetting(Enable_Movies_Media_Flags)</visible>
            </control>
            <include condition="Skin.HasSetting(HateTransparency)">T-Underlay15</include>
            <control type="image">
                <posx>0</posx>
                <posy>550</posy>
                <width>875</width>
                <height>123</height>
                <texture border="10">underlay.png</texture>
                <visible>Skin.HasSetting(Enable_Movies_Media_Flags)</visible>
            </control>
            <control type="label">
                <posx>257</posx>
                <posy>568</posy>
                <width>617</width>
                <height>30</height>
                <font>font-30</font>
                <textcolor>blue</textcolor>
                <shadowcolor>black</shadowcolor>
                <align>left</align>
                <aligny>center</aligny>
                <label>$INFO[ListItem.Title]</label>
            </control>
            <control type="label">

                <label>$INFO[ListItem.label]</label>
                <visible>IsEmpty(ListItem.Title) + !stringcompare(ListItem.Label,..)</visible>
            </control>

The changes I made to View-Fanart.xml file:
Code:
    <include name="Fanart-Videos_Extras">
        <control type="group">
            <visible>Control.IsVisible(50) + [Container.Content(Movies) | Window.IsVisible(VideoPlaylist)]</visible>

            <animation effect="slide" end="0,35" time="0" condition="Skin.HasSetting(Enable_Movies_Media_Flags)">Conditional</animation>
            <include condition="Skin.HasSetting(HateTransparency)">T-Underlay14</include>
            <control type="image">

                <autoscroll time="2000" delay="8000" repeat="5000">Skin.HasSetting(AutoScroll)</autoscroll>
            </control>

I don't seem to be getting any plot information showing up:

What am I missing?

EDIT: I have been playing around with this a little further and when I replace $INFO[ListItem.Plot] with a hard coded value like "test", I can see the hard coded value show up. It looks like maybe I need to use something other then $INFO[ListItem.Plot].

I know your kidding but:

What do you get when you try adding code like I did to your system?

$INFO[ListItem.Plot] works fine at my end.
are you browsing the movies library or your movie files?

also, a similar option is already available in T! (it will show the plot outline though):
Skin Settings > View Options > Fanart - Movies - Plot outline

I am browsing my video library.

I already have Skin Settings > View Options > Fanart - Movies - Plot outline enabled:

I think I see the problem here. I am using VIDEOS not MOVIES. I my collection organized by directories:

So how do I get the plot shown for the VIDEOS? How about adding a Skin Settings > View Options > Fanart - Videos - Plot outline for VIDEOS?

works fine there too for me.

if these are dvd/blu-ray folders you need to navigate into that folder (stacking needs to be off to do so).

If I turn off stacking and go into the video folder, when I land on VIDEO_TS the plot shows up. This is kind of awkward solution as it requires someone to turn off stacking which is not what I want to do. So is there a way to get the plot information to show up with stacking turned on? The other question is why does $INFO[ListItem.Plot] not showing any text?

I noticed you added a comment to the ticket I opened that post beta 2 will have the fix in it. It sounds like the change was made before I even opened the ticket.

I have a similar question that doesn't necessarily seem worth its own thread:

With plot information on (in the current pre-Eden), I enjoy seeing the plot summaries for Movies, but I also would really like to have the movie's year visible. As a feature request / option, is there any way to put the year next to the movie name so I can see both the plot summary and the year without going into Movie Information (ie Macbeth (1946) and Macbeth (2010))? It already seems to do this in Cover Flow view, but I really prefer Fanart view.

Thanks! Love the skin.
