Release Notes

With the new Movie Set Artwork added a couple of build ago, there has been some fine-tuning required.

Previous version blurb for your reference

MovieSet (or Collection) artwork requires users to run the new tool off the Movie menu, Movie Set ID Check.
NB: Added fix - Custom Set names are now not overwritten
This tool will run over your entire movie library, updating the Movie Set ID from TheMovieDB. With this info in place, users can check out Fanart and Poster Tabs, for the new button to display Movie Set Artwork.
NB: Added - Access Movie Set artwork also from Fanart.TV

You Will need to set the correct save location of this artwork, so please check out the layout change to Movie Preferences, and the Artwork Tab.
Users can select to save MovieSet artwork to the Collection folder, or to a Single folder for all Movie Set artwork.

Users can also select to Auto-Download MovieSet artwork on scraping of a Movie, though if you have not selected to automatically rename the movie and folders, it is suggested to set MC to store this artwork to a Central Folder.

Finally, in XBMC/Kodi, you'll need the Movie Set Artwork Automator addon. the Frodo/Gotham version also functions in Helix and Isengard.
Set up this addon and it will upload your locally saved MovieSet artwork to the XBMC/Kodi Database.

Last change is on the MovieSet and Tags Tab. MovieSet list has been revamped to display if the Movieset has a TMDB Id, and if the Fanart and/or Poster is stored locally. Double-clicking on the green Tick, will show you the selected artwork.
Also, on the Movie Browser Tab, if the movie is in a MovieSet, and the Fanart/Poster is present, the ExtraArtwork panel becomes visible, and users can click on Set Fanart or Set Poster to display relevant image.
