Default 3 new templates for MM and Dune

Hi all dune users.

I've adapted and created 3 new templates for the dune index export.


first, let's start by the "How to" :

1. dowload the .zip that you want. unzip it, it will contain a .xml as well as some .png files

2.
XP user need to go to
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\My Movies\FileStorage\User Customization\Meta Data\Dune Templates"

Win7 user go to :
"C:\ProgramData\My Movies\FileStorage\User Customization\Meta Data\Dune Templates"

3. in "..\Dune Templates", create a new folder with exact same name as the .xml file in the zip (for "Template 2.xml" create a "Template 2" folder, with same capital "T"). If you want to install the 3 templates, you will need to create 3 new folders.

4. copy/paste in this new folder everything you will find in the "..\Dune Templates\My Movies Default" folder

5. copy/paste in new folder the .png files corresponding and that you found in the .zip (.png in "Template 2.zip" in "Template 2" folder, say OK for overwriting files)

6 copy paste the .xml file in "..\Dune Templates" (next to "My Movies Default.xml")

7. go to CM/Options/metadata/dune config and voilą, you will find in the "template" the new templates you just installed along with the My Movie Default. Select the one you want and run a full update of your index to recreate the backdrops.


The templates :

"Template 2" : based on the MM Default, but this is a condensed version with bigger view of the backdrop and a dimmed overlay (I really hate the default one that takes too much place...) invisible on black backdrops, but usefull for reading on white backdrop. Changes apply for movies, template for episodes is MM default (but with the new overlay).

"Template 3" : adapted from "Glass" template for Yadis by user DonJuan2000 (you can say "thank you" to him here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=284 ). Black overlay, easy to read, large backdrop. I mixed both Glass and only kept the poster for cover (no DVD/HDDVD/BR cover). This time I also adapted it for episodes (also from DonJuan)

"Template 4" : also from DonJuan "Polar" work ("thank you" here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=254 )
Very different from the normal one, very big description easy to read on smaller screen. Episodes adapted as well.

I hope you will enjoy it, and that there'are the first of a long list (mpcclub is full of very beautifull templates if you need some inspiration...).

If you find any bug (text too long that doesn't fit in a window for example), just post here and I will correct it. If you want to make changes, just remember that Template 3 and 4 are an original creation from DonJuan2000 on mpcc, it would be fair to ask him if you can change it (that's what I did, and it was not a problem).

small cosmetic changes on Template 4 : added a shadow to cover and fanart, looks better IMO (and closer to original), also changed title to display to "LocalTitle"

Here's a new one (Template 6). This is the first template 100% done by myself.

Quite simple with limited data on the screen (only the most important IMO).


Movie :



Episode :

you can still use the how-to in the first post.

hope you will like it

small mistake in the .xml for DVD covers, use the new zip here with correct cover-mirror for DVD, previous version was not displaying it (was still looking good) : http://www.mediafire.com/?6n0balo9oa51ei5



(too bad we can't edit older posts than the last one...)

Will Blu-ray 3D movies show the 3D Blu-ray logo? If not is there a way to add it?

Please advise

Default Re: 3 new templates for MM and Dune

good question...I can't see any BR3D icons in MM templates, but I know that Collection management has a 3D checking, so it should be possible to integrate in the xml and link it to an icon. May be you should ask for it on the official forum. If this is something possible I will try to integrate it.

Also, it could be already activated, but if there's no icon it won't be displayed. Did you tried to scrap a 3D movie using one of these templates ?

New template adapted from Red Cinema C3 template by Cinemusic on mpcc (you can thank him here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=323 ). Fits perfectly my full dune layout as i'm using the same backdrop for all my dune menus...

Default Re: 3 new templates for MM and Dune

I reworked tovaxxx's Clear 2.0 tempate for MM. You can thank tovaxxx here : http://www.mpcclub.com/forum/showpos...&postcount=376

So this is Template 7

I made some little changes for the movie template, but I had to rework almost everything for the TV series because :
1. MM is not able (at least for now) to use the TV banners
2. the overlay used by tovaxxx makes it impossible to use with 99% of the fanarts 'cause it's only showing 50% of a 1080p picture... the remaining 1% should be the True Blood fanart he used in his preview. (unless there's a big trick in yadis that makes dynamic backdrops hide/unhide...but MM anyway is not able to do this)

Files are there, and install is as usual : http://www.mediafire.com/?z1gflp9dj5qzq1z
