I am trying to make use of the Theme Designer (for once) and the Reflections template would be a good choice for my current project, but those darn stars, those needless stars, can they be removed or altered. I would like the former, but the latter would be good if the stars were Easter eggs instead. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

Hi Barry -

I just had a dig around in the template folders and can't find ANY simple way to remove those stars - let alone turn them into eggs!

My next thought was to just cover them with something else - but that would be somewhere between very difficult & next-to-impossible with some of the sequences.

Just a down-side of using templates undecided

Cheers - Tony

I'm still trying to find the up-side...

Tony is probably correct.

This is where I found the Reflection Icons. They are small 320 x 178 pixels.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberlink\templates\PowerDirector Content Pack Essential\Styles\Reflection_Theme\themeIcons

I do not know how it all works.

Hi,
Unfortunately the theme icons are the "avatars" used within the theme designer and not the background.

In Reflection_Theme, created in 2009, there is only one 2D background image easily accessible, C:\Program Files (x86)\Cyberlink\templates\PowerDirector Content Pack Essential\Styles\Reflection_Theme\bk.jpg. Reflection_Theme is a 3D display and while a FBX viewer/editor to make changes, is available, I haven't examined the individual 3D files to isolate the stars Barry mentioned he wanted changed to eggs.

It's a nice template but the stars limit it's usability.
Well, I have moved on, but it was a thought, it's just I don't always have the time to customize a video and still have a quick delivery before people start looking to the next event. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---
