Postby xonenine » February 24th, 2010, 12:00 am

Here is a simple .psd for making skins or panels that can be opened with mouse instead of buttons.

Grabbing the center panel the skin can be opened and closed w mouse.

Pull out and pull down skins may also be made this way...To a certain degree skin elements and panels are also moveable this way.With snap to frame multiple positions/modes can be established. :)

Nice example Xonenine :D

It gives us a good idea of the direction that skin design will probably move towards. Especially once we have hardware acceleration and SUI's. The thought of a pull down playlist gives me goosebumps :thumright:

I'm excited too.There are hundreds of new tricks to try now w moving panels, and shade skins, and drawers. :)

I'm going to make 3 or 4 types and fool around, 'cause before long Cliff will have a fix in to trigger the playlist, it's been a while... :)

i see where this is going, but i was initially hoping for something else. it would offer a huge benefit in filesize reduction if the sections actually translated, instead of progressing through frames.

That's a really interesting way to make a sliding panel, nice work xonenine!!

Its interesting to see what people can come up with when they're held under certain limitations, that's for sure!

I will eventually add a way to translate frames. I'm just rather busy on some other projects at the moment.

thanks Cliff, this will never stop being fun for me.Carmine. :)

another idea was to slide an animation sideways, touch screen like, each snap frame being a different mode, Playlist, EQ, Art, should be fun...
