Hello Animated Videos Makers. If I would describe a perfect team or a person to work with it'd be somebody creative, conscientious. Team or an individual that won't disappoint you and just simply good to work with. We are in the process of making our new website up for an e-commerce brand We are launching, I'm currently looking for: a second animated video for our advertisement w I want to make some of our digital marketing video like AD, social message, festival message.
Brand introduction etc. Video Maker Needed I need a video based on our real estate project. The video has to be animated and customised. No copy paste work will be permitted.
Pure animation with project buildings and themes will be provided on basis of the requirement. Hi everyone! We are running this contest in order to select a copywriter who we are looking to work with on a long-term basis.

I'm in search of a creative video maker to produce a short promo video for my web design company. Photoshop images, adding the product, and the Instant Pot in the Image as real as possible.
In a sub folder aIn this tutorial I'm going to take you through the basics of creating a theme for Emulationstation and RetroPie. We are going to create a simple theme called 'Spare'. We'll be using the default 'Carbon' theme as a guide, but creating all the XML from scratch so we can get a better understanding of it.
I chose these 3 as they are pretty ubiquitous in the console world and most people should have heard of them. I also chose these 3 as they all have different shaped box art square, portrait and landscape respectivelyand we will be using those differences for some more advanced concepts in a later tutorial.
We are only doing 3 folders because once you've done one, the rest are pretty similar, and this tutorial is pretty long as it is, and you can only see 3 systems on the carousel anyway. It is a simple, clean theme, not very outlandish, but it's enough to teach the essentials, and a few of the more advanced ideas. Emulationstation has 3 main sections, called Views: [All images taken from the default Carbon theme].
It has a large white bar along the middle that houses a carousel that shows 3 System logos at a time. Basic View This is a simple game list page. You see this if you haven't scraped any metadata for that system.
Detailed View The Detailed View is what you see if you have scraped metadata. Different themes can show different data, in different places or a different order, but every theme can only display these values along with the Game List :.
The Video View is what you see if your scraped metadata includes videos. The video view is an extension of the Detailed View. It can display all of the values found in the Detailed View along with these additions:.
Extra values can be added by the Theme Maker, but the ones above are the only ones that get scraped by Emulationstation. Any others have to have their data entered by hand. More on 'Extra' fields later. I personally find it much easier to work on my Windows PC than directly on the Pi. It makes saving, testing and taking screenshots much simpler. I'm sorry Mac and Linux users, I don't know if there are any equivalents for you.
However, this step is entirely optional. Emulationstation should now be set up with 45 fake games on 3 Systems, and ready for you to use. We're going to make the theme straight in the Portable Emulationstation's theme folder. This makes things a lot easier, because you can view a change straight away without having to move files each time. First, download the full Spare theme from GitHubso you have the images and fonts you need, and also so you have something to reference.
We'll start by setting up a simple file structure, with folders for the 3 console systems; Gameboy gbNintendo Entertainment System nes and Super Nintendo Entertainment System snes. You can call it anything you like. Some people use "art", others use "common". When you are making your own theme you would obviously change the 'theme name' and 'author' fields to suit.
Notice it's almost identical to spare. You don't need to specify any theme details, because we are using this line:. That line means, find a file up one level from here, called spare. This is handy because it means you can have the bulk of your code in spare.GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Please feel free to fork it and take it over for the Retropie community as I am no longer using it and no longer have time to do any work with it.
To those of you who have made an effort and contributed, you have my endless thanks and respect. This is a collection of unofficial installation scripts for RetroPie allowing you to quickly and easily install emulators, ports and libretrocores that haven't been included in RetroPie for one reason or another. These scripts can be considered experimental at best. Those in the master branch have been tested reasonably and should work well but may have some flaws as they haven't gone through the RetroPie's watchful eyes yet.
Pull requests and issue reports are accepted and encouraged as well as requests. Feel free to use the issue tracker to send me any personal requests for new scripts that you may have. The following commands clone the repo to your Raspberry Pi and then run install-scripts. If your setup differs, just copy the scripts directly to the folder they need to be in.
After installing RetroPie-Extrathe extra scripts will be installed directly in the RetroPie Setup script generally in the experimental sectionwhich you can run from either the command line or from the menu within Emulation Station. The following commands update your Raspberry Pi to the latest repo and then run install-scripts.
In most cases, this is likely because the port requires external data files, especially in the case of game engines. In cases where shareware datafiles are available, the port will install them where possible.
Otherwise, you will need to provide your own. The warning dialog box at the end of installation should usually tell you what files will be needed and where to place them. If you somehow don't see a dialog box after installation, you can open the script itself and look towards the bottom for the warning. I've moved this over to the TODO.Scraping is a way to get metadata, boxart and video previews snapshots for your games from the internet.
If the scraper isn't working either you are not connected to the Internet or source site may be down or overloaded and in that case you'll just have to wait until it comes back up.
Since EmulationStation 2. It can be accessed from the main menu in EmulationStation, opened by the Start button. Note : during the first scraping session using TheGamesDB as scraping source, Emulationstation will download additional information list of publishers, developers, genres from TheGamesDB.
The scraper will seem unresponsive for a very short period of time - depending on the download speed - but after the necessary information is downloaded and saved, the scraping will resume.
Any subsequent scraping operations will re-use the downloaded information, without any additional downloads. If you are having issues with your metadata changes not being saved, you need to select Quit EmulationStation from the quit menu rather than shutdown or restart system.
Then your changes will be saved. Steven Selph's scraper is one of the simplest and best way of scraping roms provided that the systems are supported. It can be installed and used from the setup menu using the following steps:. It may take some time for the xml files to build. This will also only work if your roms are located in the local roms folder and not on an external device. If your roms are located on another source than the default one, you can download the stand alone releases from sselph's scraper releases.

Here is a video showing how to scrape videos using the Steven Selph's Scraper. It scrapes and caches various game resources from various web sources, including media such as screenshot, cover and video. It then gives you the option to generate a game list and artwork for the chosen frontend by combining all of the cached resources. For a more thorough description of any functionality described here, please check out the official Skyscraper documentation. Make sure to update to the latest version of Retropie-Setup script if you don't have skyscraper as an installable package!
Skyscraper can be used to generate scraping information for both EmulationStation and AttractMode. Installing skyscraper as a RetroPie package will automatically configure it for EmulationStation, but if you wish to use it for generating AttractMode metadata, you can use Skyscraper from the command line. Check the official documentation for a list of all command line options. All of the data will be cached while doing so. Then, when you have gathered enough data, be sure to generate the game list for Emulationstation from the cache.
This will combine all of your cached data into the most complete results for each rom.Below is a basic list of parts and websites I use when building game boys with tips on best practices.
I know sometimes it is difficult to find things when you do not know what you need. These are quick Amazon links but some of these parts can be sourced elsewhere for cheaper may take several weeks for shipping.

The gamelist. ES will check three places for a gamelist.How to Add Box Art in RetroPie & Metadata Manually- RetroPie Tips
Each piece of metadata is encoded as a string. Some metadata is also marked as "statistic" - these are kept track of by ES and do not show up in the metadata editor. They are shown in certain views for example, the detailed view shows both playcount and lastplayed.
You can use ES's built-in scraping tools to avoid creating a gamelist. ES will try to write any image paths as relative to the current system games path or relative to the current home directory if it can. This is done to try and keep installations portable so you can copy them between computers. One thing to be aware of: the EmulationStation text rendering code doesn't currently support Unicode.
If I fix this in the future, it will probably use UTF If a value matches the default for a particular piece of metadata, ES will not write it to the gamelist. The switch --gamelist-only can be used to skip automatic searching, and only display games defined in the system's gamelist.
The switch --ignore-gamelist can be used to ignore the gamelist and force ES to use the non-detailed view. If at least one game in a system has an image specified, ES will use the detailed view for that system which displays metadata alongside the game list.
An offline scraper is also possible though you'll have to subclass ScraperRequest. I hope to write a more complete guide on how to do this in the future. Skip to content.
