    You would also be out of business.

    Oops, WFTS

    Oh I get it now... for some reason I was under the impression this was on the air.

    The bug is also missing so that's one indication of part of the problem. I would assume they do the graphics locally but the bug is beamed in from Indy if I understand the system correctly.

    That sounds like a master control issue. With that function hubbed odd things happen...
  5. *cough* The demos they are looking for and will need to survive past about 2035. *cough*
  6. Clearly my comment went right over your head but thanks for showing how “Easy” it is... I don’t do art, never could, so this means nothing to me. I just know what it looks like and how it behaves.
  7. You’re a tough crowd...
  8. While that’s largely true the same basic design principles apply. Boring flat bars and large full size rectangular graphics. Tabs galore. Ghosted logos in full screen graphics. There’s a lot of we do that too just not as well in there. It isn’t as flashy, there’s are also older.
  9. Not bad... the 5 looks halfway decent like that.
  10. From the viewer end I’m hearing a lot of positive things.. if you’re Management who’s opinion matters more? The employees or the viewers? Plus like the previous package these will be modified over time as stations adapt them to suit their needs.
  11. Over just how wide of a sample?
  12. I think it depends on the station and the person. Some like it and some hate it. Same as everything else on earth. And there’s a lot of stations and people to ask too so opinions will vary.
  13. As far as I understand from everything said on here it’s their own creation.
  14. Nah... but from what I’ve heard from others people are warming up to these... If done right they look darn good, it’s really time for you to embrace the dark side my friend...
  15. Giant Octopus at work. Beats the pants off what you’ve been trying to get me to buy... actually the graphics I showed don’t look bad at age 11... They aged well on my TV too when I screen mirrored them. I’m not a graphic designer I’m a News consumer... There’s a reason they don’t just let the graphic designers work and see what happens...
  16. If I wanted it to do all that I would have stuck to the V2 graphics... they already did all that spinny 3D stuff. A different live bug, some highlighting flashes on the L3’s and a background behind the bug and maybe some darkening of the gradient in the background logo on full screen graphics and it would be an excellent look. It doesn’t need many tweaks to look really good. You’re showing me a lot of small market looking stuff that was cool in major markets a long time ago... any comment on my original suggestion? Flashy but not overly so with 3D elements and flatness...
  17. And I thought swooshes in mine were pushing it... no thanks. There is too much going on in those graphics and it’s distracting... Plus it would never fit some of their stations styles... like glove on a foot type of bad fit. It’s nice for Lexington I guess. Scripps has essentially created someone’s watered down steam rollerized dream version of what WLS has... it could use some small things but it looks pretty good on TV when implemented correctly...
  18. How 2007-ish... this sort of thing isn’t really in for news. Would something like this make you feel better?
  19. That video actually proves the opposite. You can do a lot with it if you throw a little effort into it. You’ve never really been very clear exactly what you want it to do...
  20. Well... the open is generic in a “taking action for you, you’re watching 7 Action News” way. No times or anything in the open which sucks. The graphics seem to move a little faster than others we have seen. There are 3 transition graphics: ghosted Circle 7 in the background without logo, silver circle 7 Logo With ghosted 7 in the background and ghosted circle 7 logo with ghosted 7 in the background. Weather graphics have had a minor refresh on the maps to add the cartoonish suns and all the other graphics look as advertised there. Several of the L3’s had no text message tab on them. It’s a much better look and I hope they lean on that heavily. Music was the midday theme. I took pictures of most of this if somebody wants to see them I’ll post whatever you’re interested in.
  21. WXYZ’s debut tomorrow (5/13) at Noon.
  22. I’m thinking the political or midday themes as the main theme... it’ll be interesting to evaluate whether every station used the themes as described by track name at some point. I have the feeling some of them will change up which theme is which.

    Well... they kinda depend on the games for their lifeblood... but that’s kind of a given.
