Scripting / theme screen size Q:
« on: February 17, 2017, 08:10:00 PM »
so iv been off and running making my own theme's for a bit now.

and iv been just making them with this

local flx = fe.layout.width;
local fly = fe.layout.height;
local flw = fe.layout.width;
local flh = fe.layout.height;

so that for the most part all will adjust to diff screen sizes...
i just bought a pi-3b and im testing some of my themes they are on a bartop with a 5.4 ratio screen
and going to need a bit of adjusting because it is such an odd size

so my Q is what is the best way to make a  theme to this screen size ?
 i know can just edit it till it look's good , but i feel i should be setting the screen size, or somthing
then also their is how one would give the option to have it fit multiple screen sizes.

my goal is to start making my themes, and update my older ones so that i have a better product...

if you have experience with this please chime in and give me your input  thanks...

Scripting / animation, scale Question
« on: January 28, 2017, 06:32:45 PM »
anyone know how one could instead of scale a snap,
only scale vertically or horizontally
so the snap would start at 100, 100   
then shrink  to 0, 100
code mite look something like this

Code: [Select]
::OBJECTS <- {
pac = fe.add_artwork("video", flx*0.100, fly*0.200 , flw*0.100, flh*0.100)

local down = {
        when =Transition.ToNewSelection ,
property = "fly*",
start = fly*0.100,
end = fly*0.00,
time = 600,
animation.add( PropertyAnimation ( OBJECTS.pac, down ) );

like a window rolloin one could add transitional pinch or skew

the goal woud be to make it look like a cube rotating with every side beeing a diff game
like they have in launchbox "bigbox"
