Some helpful tooltips were added to the Cast and Trailers panels.
For Cast it displays a larger view of the cast image, in its original aspect ratio along with the original image resolution. Use this along with the new added context menu for cast iamges to easily weed out unwanted images.
For Trailers (current trailers), it displays information about the trailer such as description, cast and release date.
Cast Context Menu¶
Right click context menu has been added to the cast panel. It allows you to easily delete an image, add a locally stored image (a lot better experience than the already supported drag-drop) as well as go to the containing image folder.
A copy/paste is also available which can make it easy to perform other tasks. It copies the image to the clipboard and pastes from the clipboard as well (if an image is available). It can make some tasks easier, such as:
- Right Click->Copy an image from Google Images and paste it into meta<browser/> (for those hard to find images)
- Copy an image from meta<browser/> and paste it into your favorite image editor. Edit to your liking, copy from image editor and paste into meta<browser/>.
Mapping (Sorting Filename)¶
A new mapping is available for sorting, which maps the actual filename before any processing/sorting is done with the episode file in your sorting location.
This can come in handy to map episodes from one season to another, for example, you can map American Dad - s06e01 - xyz.mkv => American Dad - s07e01 - xyz.mkv, so now the episode will be sorted as Season 7 instead of Season 6.
Using regex mappings you would be able to accomplish much more advanced mappings for sorting. See Mappings for more details.
Resize Cast Images¶
The Image Resize plugin received an update to resize cast images as well.
Please note that it will only resize newly downloaded cast images and not cast images already in your collection.
Support for logos and clear art for movies from fanart.tv has been added. Please make sure to install and/or update the fanart.tv plugin.
The plugin was also updated to use the latest version of their API, which also means that you can now Process All season level thumbs for TV since their new API returns the season number indicator in their results.
There were a lot of other fixes and updates in this release, including a lot of updates relating to Episode Sorting and the ability to overwrite existing episodes with newer ones based on certain key words and/or higher resolution.
