Contest Entry #21: Seashells
Added by Rona Wittner | 2004 | 1,313 views
ScreenshotScreenshot
With this file I wanted to demonstrate the usage of animations. The theme that is chosen is based on the seashore. Four types of shells are used to represent the four devices TV, VCR, DVD and Amp. They are presented right away on the home page.

  • All devices have their own sea shore background. The buttons on each device are small versions of the shells to get a uniform look and feel. The top bar shows the other devices for quick selection.
  • The animations are implemented as macros (in hidden devices) with a series of page jumps. The following animations are included:
    - When a shell is selected on the home page this one becomes enlarged on the background. The others move to their place in the top bar.
    - In a device page press the Home hardkey and the same animation is played backwards.
    - In a device page select another device from the top bar and this one becomes the center. This is not a separate animation. Instead it just executes the Home macro and then the device selection macro from the home page.
    - There is a fifth animation, but that one you have to find for yourself!
  • Background bitmaps are created from photographic material found on the internet and are all... (more)

    Contest Entry #22: Chloe

    SECOND PLACE WINNER! Chloe is a device oriented PCF for TV, DVD, VCR, AMP and LIGHTING. The file has a unique colorful 3D interface with transitional animations. Each device has a single page and makes use of the “firm” buttons, which are labelled on the LCD screen. Included is a template page for other devices or to flesh out included devices. All buttons have “delay” placeholders. Try it in the simulator to see the animations!

    Contest Entry #23: Sliding Tabs

    My system design is based in a completely custom operating environment with all custom graphics and animation. It was designed for ease of use and to have a high WAF rating. (That’s Wife Appreciation Factor!) It can operate on either device or action based depending on the user’s preference.

    Device based operation is accessible by simply touching the device banner at the top of the screen and selecting the desired device from the list. Action based operation, including system power, is accessed by pressing the home button. The lower left hard action buttons are direct access to a surround mode and a multi zone page. All page navigation within each device can be accessed with either the side toggle or the 4 screen hard buttons, which have selection feedback to identify each page. All page transitions use a simple morphing animation. I believe that the design’s best feature is that my wife actually uses it to control my bedroom system without my help and with very little explanation of how it works.

    Contest Entry #24: Simple Elegance
    Added by Michael Burwen | 2004 | 1,467 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    This design was created with specific ergonomic objectives in mind:
    1. Ease-of-vision, particularly by senior citizens. This dictated using relatively large, primary-color icons against a white background. The color scheme was devised by Mr. Gary Hoover, a retired famous movie-industry colorist and graphic artist.
    2. To provide self-contained instructions. On each page, depressing the owl "professor" icon leads to one or more text instruction pages.
    3. No more than two screens to operate any single device.
    4. To use the hard buttons as much as possible.
    5. K.I.S.S. i.e., pass the "wife" test.
    Most of the graphics are original and were created with Paint Shop Pro 8. The instruction screens were created with Photoshop Elements 2.0.

    Contest Entry #25: Black Lightning
    Added by David Shaw | 2004 | 1,917 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    I decided to do something a little different on this PCF! You will find very few buttons that are ovals, circles or rectangles. Each type of button has its own unique shape and shading. Most of the text is on a curve to match its button. Almost every button is semi transparent to some degree using the PNG alpha-transparency. Most buttons have a pressed and released state. The pressed and released buttons are interchangeable, so you could change the color scheme of the PCF by changing these two buttons around.

    There are sequences of lightning strikes that can be "animated" into your macros, so it looks like a lightning storm when the macro runs. The cursor buttons are both on the screen and the hard buttons.

    Contest Entry #26: Tranquil Blue
    Added by Jeff Cooper | 2004 | 1,371 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    This is my first Pronto configuration. My goal was to replace my MX-1000 with the TSU7000, and add a few things that I could not do on the MX-1000. I set out to create a 100% original art work configuration. I created the buttons using Crystal Buttons, followed up with enhancements using PhotoImpact. I also tinted the system bitmaps blue by replacing the bitmaps in the PCF file, and created pressed bitmaps of all buttons to look like they are lighting up when they are pressed.

    I created a device bar for my major devices. This can be clicked to jump directly to a device although you have to use your fingernail since it so small. I also created an information screen for the device hard buttons.

    Contest Entry #27: Stoned Aqua
    Added by Adam Bursey | 2004 | 1,321 views

    This layout is an evolution of my TSU3000 layout. It is activity-based and makes heavy use of macros to control my two zones of equipment and home automation. The layout of hard and soft buttons for each device follows a pattern, making it fairly simple to learn to use. There is a help screen for each device. The skin resulted from a hybrid of Aqua-like plastic button and a rough stone background.

    Contest Entry #28: Retro Gold
    Added by André du Fresne | 2004 | 2,289 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    GRAND PRIZE WINNER! Unlike my TSU6000 CCF, this PCF can be easily modified with only basic knowledge of graphic editors like Photoshop or Paintshop Pro. It makes excessive use of transparent PNG graphics as well as multiple jumps. Thus, there are two simulated joysticks and an antique-style lever for VCR transport, including a record protection latch! The station logos can be replaced within minutes since they are simple bitmpas lying underneath a transparent button frame.

    Furthermore, there are controls for PVR, tuner, CD, lights and receiver. The welcome screen features animations and a help screen for both users and developers. Play with it and enjoy!

    Contest Entry #29: Sea: My Anenome
    Added by Alden Reine | 2004 | 1,268 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    An all-new design with device specific buttons, backgrounds, and bottom “activity” bars for the four hard buttons at the bottom of the touch screen. I personally prefer pages with as few buttons as possible, so my PCF file reflects this minimalist approach. The way one changes devices in this PCF is by using the “NavMode” hard button at the bottom of the remote. On every page this button will take you to the “Device Overview Template” page, where you can then switch to different devices.

    I have reworked the majority of the buttons I created for the TSU3000 in color for the TSU7000. I’ve also created several new color buttons as well. “Action buttons” for a variety of activities are included as well as logo “panels” for labeling specific devices from a number of different manufacturers. New color television station buttons are included in the “Surf” section of the Tivo device and the Hughes DSS device. Hope you enjoy my work!

    Special credit goes to www.DigitalBlasphemy.com for the background anemone images included in my .PCF file.

    Contest Entry #30: Make It Work
    Added by Robert Boazman | 2004 | 1,681 views
    ScreenshotScreenshot
    This is my first PCF design for the TSU7000. I created this design to accommodate my 6 year old son and my wife. Like most, she doesn't want to learn about all the equipment. As she says, "Just make it work."

    The design is simple to use and is based on our most frequently used activities. These icons are on almost all pages, DirecTV, TiVo and HDTV icons. Since some of the equipment, like the Yamaha, is new to me, I'll be adding functionality over time. Most pages have a browse back button, even though one is hard coded. Easy access to guides and info. A complete collection of CD cover art provides direct access to any CD. TiVo is used frequently. Buttons are built from stock Liatro buttons.

    Thanks to Daniel and all the Remote Central forum members and their designs. I borrowed from everyone. Special thanks to Dave D'Arche for the Pronto Wizard Guide. It saved me many hours and he was extremely helpful with my email questions.
