Updated Charcoal Series

Postby ronsatter » Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:32 pm

Hi all,

Just some scenes to give folks some visual ideas. These are new additions and/or upgrades to my "Charcoal" series. This stuff takes a lot of time ... so by the time I design a set, I have to re-design for all the great ideas I get from this forum. It's a viscious plot by Cinemar to keep us hooked on this fabulous software. 8)

Man oh man, those are nice, Ron.

Visually appealing, yet at the same time you have packed in lot of info on each screen. And its all organized together in what for me is the best I have ever seen.
Bravo, Sir.

Thanks for sharing them,
randy

Oh Crap! Every time I copy your scenes you go and change them so I then have to re-do mine. :)

Love the traffic light!!!

Excellent work! You should sell it (although I know there would be a lot of work to configure it for each individual setup). Or if you don't mind sharing?

Ron says $1,000 per scene, and there is only 23 or so total in the package...
Thanks!

Seriously Ron; You scenes are some of the best I have seen for the Cinemar product. They are consistent, follow all the basic design guidelines, and look to be very usable. What looks good on a computer monitor is not necessarily usable in a touch screen environment. Also reading a touch screen that is mounted flat on a wall requires larger, consistent graphics. You have achieved both of those points in my opinion.

I really like the splash of art in you "banner" area on some of your primary scenes. It adds the needed color.

And...You may be developing a little side career path! Good Work!
Thanks!

Thanks DaveB and everyone for the kind words.

It's a work in progress, as we all have experienced. Thanks to Cinemar for providing such a great piece of design software!

A note about sharing requests ... the scenes are easy enough to share, it's all the coding behind them which is difficult to share. In the spirit of sharing in this forum (which I find quite excellent) I try to explain some of the "behind the scenes" coding whenever I can.

I have found several ML "gems" in the "Tips, Tricks and Tutorials" section of the forum. Many times great ideas get lost in the old posts ... never to be found by a simple wiki search.

I encourage others who have fresh ideas to post, so all of us can benefit.
