Downloaded the new Studio software package last week to play around with it. No page templates for devices. Anyone know when they are going start releasing these or am I missing something?

Yeah...it's a bit of a joke. Some devices are built great, others are lacking. It also seems that there are inconsistencies between UI hardware. I built a project yester day with a Motorola cable box, TSW-752, XPanel, iPad, and iPhone. Only the iPhone had transport controls for the cable box. The only security layout is for Honeywell...we only do DSC. No way to easily do third-party lighting.

I have continually told my RSM that these things need to be addressed if they want to instill confidence in their commitment to residential.

Worse yet, I downloaded Studio to look at it, looked like systembuilder so I decided to uninstall it. Once I uninstalled it, I could not compile / build anything in D3 anymore. True blue didnt have an answer other than to reinstall Studio which I did and the D3 problem went away. Now I have a 1GB program on my drive just taking up space.

I use it for creating and upgrading my SG themes. Not totally wasted space.....

Of course this is SB V2.0

I've been getting emails from our district manager. I don't see the point until the software is a bit more substantial.

Well, I just spent the last 6 hours mastering Crestron Studio.... I can now build & compile my own completely scalable graphics and themes to build templates. I am going about this a different way, however. I will explain once I post a screenshot...

I was dreading this because I know it is extremely hard to master, but I have been waiting to get back into Crestron for the longest time. One set of unified graphics will work for everything.

Any particular resource you used or found or just poking around in the themes section?

I created my own theme from scratch so I can use my Aleera graphics (currently for RTI, Leviton / Bitwise, and ProControl to build templates in VTPro-e.

Basically, I had to figure out how to import them (pretty easy), how to build an image map (not too bad), them bring that into a new style.

Creating my own 9-Slice attributes to apply to different buttons was a chore, and I missed assigning them to a style category after about a dozen compile / tests.

I also had to figure out how to assign them in Control Styles as well. Once I got a single button to scale properly, I built the rest and started creating pages with all of the blank buttons and started placing my icon / overlays on everything in VTP.

He had some help. I learned using the Crestron tutorials on the site.

I have the videos too, but they are hard to watch for me. I can't pay attention for more than 2 minutes. Once I figured out the logical steps, and assigning your new graphics to certain groups, it became easier.

I need to figure out custom sliders and a couple other things, but getting the core parts of the UI built was the major hurdle.
