Sliding Discs - Bowtie Theme

I started making this bowtie theme a long time ago now and since then it's just been gathering virtual dust in my projects folder. People have been asking for it and I thought it was finally time to release it.

When you start iTunes, the theme will eject a blank CD, it will then inject and once you start a song, it will eject itself and display the cover art of the album currently playing.

Albums that do not have a cover art will be displayed as blank CD's.

---------------------------

You can find a short video which demonstrates the basics of the theme here:

If you find any bugs, please let me know.

Enjoy!

it doesn't seem to be working for me. I double clicked on the .bowtie, and it shows up in the list with an empty preview. :/

Nevermind... even though I looked for it all over my desktop... I tried it again and found it hiding being a window. :3

Wow this is a great skin. Maybe you could make this skin possible for Xion?

The cover art is skewed and transformed with CSS to fit a mask, so I'm not sure if it would work.
It might work, but will probably just look odd.

Can you port it for TunesArt 1.0 (which is now supporting skins)? That would be really awesome. :)

Very nice idea! :)

I feel that inner circle is a bit in another perspective than disk itself.
Plizzo's avatar
The perspective should be the same on all parts, but I'll look into it!

Any chance of a release for cover sutra?

I prefer control on cover sutra :P
Plizzo's avatar
This would be impossible to do with CoverSutra.
CoverSutra is based on overlay images, this is is based on html with javascript and CSS masks.
