|Summary||0006545: Art View Performance / display issues|
|Description||In the (Album) Art View, there are a couple of problems with how the thumbnails are rendered for video (leaving this all in one bug because the performance issues may involve tradeoffs in relation to the cosmetic issues):|
1) performance is passable for Music Albums, but is so slow as to be unusable for video content. Just dragging the scrollbar down locks the MM UI as it loads up the artwork.
2) the video thumbnails don't look great, maily because:
- the thumbnails are different sizes, but we're trying to fit them in the squares that are used for Album Art (which is always a constant size).
- the thumbnails often have white lines between the image and their mirror
Suggestions for the cosmetic issue:
a) Generate thumbnails that are all the same vertical size (crop if necessary) OR Display the thumbnails so that they are all immediately above the associated text (the different vertical space between the images and the text contributes to the clutter). I suggest trying the latter first.
b) Get rid of the mirrored effect since it doesn't really work well when the mirror is so close in height to the image thumbnail (esp. if doing so improves performance, and also considering that this will solve the problem of white lines between the thumbnail and its mirror) for Collection where Type=video. Perhaps just use a shadow instead.
