sliding out Playlist

Skinning Questions, Suggestions and Ideas

Postby shadowman » October 19th, 2009, 6:11 pm

Hi.

I'm working on a skin right now.

Is there a way to make the playlist open animated (sliding out)?
Like the two panels left and right in the new default skin?

How about a skinnable equalizer?

Thanks :D

You can only trick it really, open up a drawer with a fake playlist and then show the playlist once the draw is extended, to keep the animation smooth, less resource.

look at the feedback button on the site on the left of screen, cast your vote on new functionality for EQ, although looking like Library and SUI taking precedence over anything else atm :)

You can use modify(x) acla show - see the reference lines on those kinds of modifications.
Onload you would hide it or (based on save state show or hide) then if opening open drawer, show pl, on closing hide pl, close drawer.

Disect my Torsion skin for its bottom draw for example, by hiding the main things it saves having to animate them.

I've created an animation to open a fake-playlist.
When the sliding is finished I want to open the real playlist.

How is the keyword to do so?
Show pl or show playlist doesn't work.

Is there a way to open a layer-group like modify(layer_id) aclashow?
This works only for a single layer :)

And how can I modify the real playlist that it lays exactly over the fake playlist?

When the sliding is finished I want to open the real playlist.

I've created a fake button to toggle playlist:
Code: Select all
playlist_over
id(pl_button) playlist_normal
playlist_down

and when the animation stops I try this to emulate a mouse click to open playlist:
Code: Select all
modify(pl_button) acobtrig

Doesn't work!

I need some help, please.

I think you will find the playlist object ONLY works in the playlist rather than main skin.
Open the playlist and drag your psd into the playlist, it will then use your skin, however the playlist is limited in that it can't show more than one layer for its sections atm

How can I open the playlist window?
Usually the button object playlist_normal is used to toggle playlist on/off.
Thats why I tried the button trigger action.

You need to make the entire Main part of the skin in the playlist.psd and have a BASIC main without.

The only way your going to be able to get a playlist drawer...I had this problem back when I made skins on a regular basis...I never got around to finishing the skin I wanted to do this on, which maybe I'll do one day...

But you have to use modify(x) acla show/hide on the last frame of the drawer animation x being the label for the playlist layer...

No idea like this shall work. I have tried it already a few times but simply do not get it working.

There are further tests under the following link:

In post 29 there's the used psd-file to download. Perhaps you can look at it.

Otherwise I leave these features out for now.
