I've scoured the internet and have yet to find directions, but the directions for epg123 say that it's possible. I have no qualms editing files, the registry, etc.
I download the logos linked by Schedules Direct and place them in a sub-folder \sdlogos
. From there, you can take any of the logos and edit them for size, aspect, and even color to make it look good in the guide. Once you are done, all you have to is place the finished logo and place it in a different sub-folder \logos
. The logo must be a .png and the name must be the call sign of the station it is for.
The MCL website defines how to make the logos look right here
. The takeaway from their instruction is:
- Code: Select all
42 px tall by 96 px wide for regular logos. 75 px tall by 225 px wide for big logos
If your logo is not wide enough: Do not center a blank space. Cut the width down so it just fits the logo. No padding!
If your logo is not tall enough: Center the logo vertically in a transparent 42 x 96 pixel background (or 75x225px background)
The next time a MXF file is created, it will use the logos in the .\logos folder if you have the option selected.
