Today we are releasing our, Full Release of Inhouse Icon Library, we here use this Library for almost all TV/Musical Work that we do. Most of the time we do the design and programming for TV Shows and Musicals in a way that almost every body can run the shows. So our clients setup their own people who run or operate the show.
To make things easy for the locals we create them multiple Layout Views so that they can simply start and test the show state for errors or just the regular checks.
Other features our clients request are states of the show to be visible all the time. therefore we created show state icons with natural enabled and disabled backgrounds.
The Button Library is setup to include 2 themes, the MA-Style folder contains buttons that come close to the MA2 UI and the simple style is just simple and slick black and white icons.
You get every button in 5 variants, from 1x to 8x, this is defines the quality of the icon. The base icon dimensions are 60x60px and every X is multiplying it by the given number, so that you end up with a Icon of 480x480px. The buttons where designed to be tiny and easy on the load times. so even when you wanna go for the best quality icons, your approximate file size is not gonna be much bigger. the biggest button is 24kb.
But sometimes you want to have a small show file so you can decide for yourself which kind of button you would like to use, if you go for quality or if you go for less baggage.
Each library has a named coding to it, the first letter can be C for colors, B for beams, G gobos, P for position, F for fixtures, s for show items, se for show items enabled and sd for show items disabled.
After the letter is a number, so that you can count on the cheatsheet which icon you want to import, the counting goes from left to right and top to bottom.
An icon can also have a -s behind it, that indicates the simple version of the button.
Stay tuned for a couple of macros explaining you how to work with some of these icons and exchange them dependent on the state of show you are in dynamically.
If you like the library, comment and maybe even show of some of your creations here.
We here ar looking forward to what you can come up with them.
