Revisiting...an old idea

When I was still very much in my mind newb-ish as Winamp skins...I had this idea to create a Winamp skin that was borne of the color scheme that I loved. Everyday, I toiled on the original day and night working over and over trying to create the perfect meld of metal, glass and etc. Unfortunately, my skill at this (arguably is) at the time was less than idea to put my plan into action.

I ended up producing something and countless times thereafter...that was less than my ideal. So, I continued learning to skin and design for that matter; collaborating with anyone that dared. Working and slaving at creation and picking up tidbits from some of the best Winamp skinner's there were.


So today, I wanted to show you...that while I am not complete and just working with it as my attention allows; This original idea being revisited. You will see some areas are working examples of others in my long long long library of skins. That may or may not stay...As I said I am working on it.


Here it is: JadeTube Redux

Daily Update JTR
--------------------
Updated for today are buttons for playlist, titlebar changes, shuf rep buttons, eqmain/vis area changes, colorized eq slides (bg) prep for animation, playlist labels are off-center (currently) on purpose...I have reasons...which will become clear later on.

Note:

Why the change to the eqMain (between slides)...I always like to place may name or the collab partner name within each of my skins if possible. Most within the last 5/10 years have them...and this is no exception.

J A X are represented within that area; as well as PM; as some of the work I'm doing now included ideas of the past collaborative work we did.

End of Line.

Years ago, I thought I had sufficient experience to design what my mind desired. I failed miserably. So, I spent many years collaborating with anyone I could to learn and understand different ways of creating skins. After working with many in my opinion; the greatest Winamp skinners and indeed designers...i know feel like I can bring many of my past failures to life the way I originally planned. For me there are hundreds of ideas and most of my original submissions weren't exactly correct. Until now I haven't felt that my ideas could really be anything other than fruitless attempt at bringing them to life.

Here is the running version of the Equalizer Window...with each slide moved to show animation.



EQ Is mainly complete...I'm working on the Main volume, balance and eq|pl...

As these are going to be led type; they may take me a bit longer as they will need to represent a led version of buttons, slides and etc. (also, I need to make them very easy to see and use).

You should open a new thread for it.. (I left you some thoughts on the Devart group - I couldn't comment on your blog, do I need another account for that??)

Update 3.4
-----------------
Notes: Volume and Balance are now set to where I want them...currently focusing on the eq|pl small buttons on the window main. Though, I have my area setup. I have spend a lot of work on the eqMain and some on the playlist.

After I finish the cuts of the main I will finish up with the playlist and migrate to the other windows.
