Fanart options for different seasons

agree this would be the perfect way, even if it isn’t using the TMDB at least give the option for custom fanart

@james please take a look at what @Christian1979 is suggesting as for me, and I guess all other users, this would be the perfect setup for total customization without making any abrupt changes to the overall platform. That way, if you want to customize, you can. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to.

I agree with you, a simple and effective method that would allow us to define the seasons our favorite series, I had spoken about it a few days ago but without answer

that would be great

Hi James
sorry to talk again and again about this missing option

Why not take advantage of plex, emby or jellyfin which can use the fanarts for each season .Infuse uses the same posters and fanart chosen in these applications, why not take the opportunity to choose the fanart seasons
or let us design it by adding the option (choose the illustration …) please

Hey James, sorry to be blunt why did you guys then switch to fanart hero views that cannot be switched off in v7. This makes no sense whatsoever, why is Sopranos s4 showing me an outdated fanart from s1. Like seriously, who on the team looked at it and said “this is good, let’s release this” :brain: :boom:

Please, don’t do a version where the episode artwork is the big image on the bg.
It will look just messy
The ideal is to be able to choose which image goes there
If it’s the only solution, please make it optional so the people that don’t want it can stick with the older version
Thanks

Don’t understand, what you are saying. This thread is about having different Fan art per Season in the Background. So that whatever episode in a season is selected the same Fanart is shown in Background but having different Backround in Season 1, Season 2 etc.

This thread is not dealing with episode art (the small thumbnail for the episode) These are not supposed to be taken as Background (FanArt)

Same Problem
I am using Infuse 7 connected by plex
custom fanart for each season in plex (Manually Doing)
but infuse shows only one Fanart
Why?



You’re posting in a suggestion thread requesting this feature be added to Infuse.

Don’t forget that you need to click the like button on the first post in this thread to show your support for this suggestion! :wink:

I had already asked the question because I use plex and emby, which have their fanart per season. but I had no answer, we are using the plex skip intro option. why not use plex to diversify the fanarts because they do exist ?

@james I see you quietly changed this to planned!

Thank you all the same, look forward to seeing this as a feature.

is there any updates on this now 7.1 is out?

If you keep an eye on this thread you’ll see when it’s scheduled.

TVDB does in fact support season-specific art (whether that is accessible via the API Idk) and it’s a shame TMDB does not. Displaying random art seems to be a short-term solution to the problem that would please people but my suggestion would be for people to spam TMDB forums requesting this specific feature. There is a 2018 suggestion but obviously more people requesting the feature might be what it takes to have the TMDB developers look into it.

looking forward to this one :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

don’t hold you breath this was asked months and months ago still no show

Hi there. Just wanted to add that in some TV Shows the default fan art for all seasons gives spoilers to newer ones, which can be really frustrating when watching an old TV Show for the first time. A few examples of this are The Office and Modern Family

This really frustrates me too. I personally prefer the artwork to be for the first season as in later seasons the characters are all grown up lol or sometimes the show has changed drastically but last I checked TMDb has a policy/preference for new season, new default backdrop. Can’t find the exact link for that, but I’m sure it’s somewhere in their faqs or bible and as of right now there is no way of tagging/linking a particular backdrop to a particular season. The spoilers also happens with reality game-shows like survivor, big brother, amazing race, etc. I know people are trying to help by uploading screenshots for those, but I hate it when they do. Infuse only has a global “hide spoilers” settings but it would be better if you could hide spoilers per-show but that’s another topic.

Have you tried downloading the first season fanart and labeling it as “fanart.jpg” and placing it in the series folder to see if it will override the different seasons you don’t want to see with the one you downloaded? Instructions are here.

I was just offering my opinion on artwork wasnt really looking for assistance but thanks for offering.

  1. Too cumbersome to do it one by one in infuse.
  2. I use cloud storage so artwork doesn’t work.
  3. Luckily I have infuse connected to plex which manages metadata.
