Handling cover art

Post  Randmtask on Fri Apr 16, 2010 2:19 pm

Have a folder where you put the pictures for all the TV Shows in, so you dont need to open finder, locate the jpg then drag it in to VideoDrive. Everytime you import a new episode you dont have to redo the same procedure.

ie for Smallville if you have a picture Smallville.jpg it will automatically use that as the first option and you can still choose an alternate picture if you want

It could also have Smallville 08.jpg if you wanted it only for season 08 and Smallville 08x01.jpg if you wanted to have individual pictures per episode.

Also, it would be good if we could drag a picture from the browser into videodrive rather than have to save it and drag it from finder or open it in its own browser tab and then copy from browser

thanks

I see you have just added Video art in the local folder in 2.0, which is great.

Is there any way in this release that we can make the same image for all TV episodes this way rather than having to do TVSHOW 01x01.jpg, TVSHOW 01x02.jpg etc in the local folder?

Any chance on a response for this? Or is this already possible in 2.0?

ie Smallville.jpg would be the artwork for the whole series
or Smallville 06.jpg for season 6

cheers.

Some tips:
- you can already drag and drop images. Simply drop them on the artwork preview window. This is possible both in the metadata editor as in the window where VideoDrive asks for metadata confirmation.
- what you want to do can be easily realized with metadata presets. When you have the metadata you want and the image you like, click "save as preset". The next time you are about to import another episode of the same show, the preset will be automatically loaded and the image will be reused. Make sure that "Look for matching presets" is selected!
