Sliding Discs - Bowtie Theme by Plizzo Sliding Discs - Bowtie Theme by Plizzo
I started making this bowtie theme a long time ago now and since then it's just been gathering virtual dust in my projects folder. People have been asking for it and I thought it was finally time to release it.

When you start iTunes, the theme will eject a blank CD, it will then inject and once you start a song, it will eject itself and display the cover art of the album currently playing.

Albums that do not have a cover art will be displayed as blank CD's.

---------------------------

You can find a short video which demonstrates the basics of the theme here:

If you find any bugs, please let me know.

Enjoy!

it doesn't seem to be working for me. I double clicked on the .bowtie, and it shows up in the list with an empty preview. :/

Nevermind... even though I looked for it all over my desktop... I tried it again and found it hiding being a window. :3

Wow this is a great skin. Maybe you could make this skin possible for Xion?

The cover art is skewed and transformed with CSS to fit a mask, so I'm not sure if it would work.
It might work, but will probably just look odd.

Can you port it for TunesArt 1.0 (which is now supporting skins)? That would be really awesome. :)

Very nice idea! :)

I feel that inner circle is a bit in another perspective than disk itself.

Any chance of a release for cover sutra?

I prefer control on cover sutra :P

This would be impossible to do with CoverSutra.
CoverSutra is based on overlay images, this is is based on html with javascript and CSS masks.

The only bug I found was text was slightly cut off... but only characters like g, y, q, etc. The tails of those characters are cut off. Other than that, great theme!

can anyone port this to CAD :O?
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2010   Interface Designer
it wouldn't work, because CAD doesn't support covers to be displayed only halfways. :no:

cant you use some type of mask to cover that part ?
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2010   Interface Designer
unfortunately not. well, at least not transparent ones.
we've tried to implement such feature quite some time ago, but it's simply not supported by VisualBasic (the coding environment of CAD).
since VB isn't even supported by microsoft anymore, there also won't be any update for it either.
that's a real pity as i'd really love to see/use custom shaped album covers in CAD.
the only workaround i can think of, is to use a mask which is using parts of the wallpaper underneath the skin, so you could fake the impression of some transparent cover overlay, but as soon as you'd switch to another wall, the magic would be gone.
fullscreen skins with static or pre-defined backgrounds could work tho.

anyways.. it doesn't work like it does in bowtie. :cries:

such awesome stuff? well, pardon me, but to my experience CAD is lenghts ahead of bowtie, coversutra etc. and it'll certainly take some time before it'll be beaten. :D
