Default **solved**

I have looked around and cannot find
anything about this image or element,
SDK..no info...looked extensively in
REAPER and no go...if it was phased
out I am sure the SDK would list it as
deprecated right? I have all other
metering elements mastered, and am in
the process of putting together an
in depth .pdf on the art of meter
theming. Please help with this last
detail...I thought audiogram utilized
it and that it was just basically meant
to be a signal indicator for a busy
panel where room was scarce...like
audiogram's small vu box...but I
unpacked that theme and it is not
there...he uses the meter strips and
clip .png's.

Thanx, Never

nevermind I figured it out
like i always do, expirimenting.
Found an old post ...the only one
on the whole board about it...they
could not figure it out either but
it is like 10x10...when you reduce
the meter to these dimensions it
resorts to this image. Like a toosmall
sort of thing. Thanks.

Hey, Never can you please give some attention to the my posts here:
https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?p=1979115

Sorry, to ask you this but I think there are many misunderstood things about correct and expected purpose of a theme. It is not always about "looking fancy and futuristic, vintage, eye-candy or whatever.

Thanks! And I hope theme mod could be done much more easily from the settings in Reaper.

Cant wait to read your pdf. Im reading the Walter guide on a sunday morning. To page 33 now. I start to get it. Was able to move meter and fader mcp on top of each other. Now I need to play with transparency and front layers.

If you have a certain question always search the forum, and pending nil result, post, post, post. I did this here, but no one chimed in after 90 views....o well by that time I had figured it out on my own, and it's good enough for me. I will answer all I can, and try not to lead you wrong. One thing for sure,
when I publish this or any other guide, it will be spot-on before I put my name on it, so you will be able to trust it's accuracy.

I replied in the other thread. The theme tweaker to me is an appetizer.
I wanted more and more, and I started out just replacing images in themes I liked. Never published a knock off but it is how I learned. There is always alot of rhetoric here about the correct way to learn or theme or do everything, and people are all different, people learn different. Auditorily, textually, and some tactilly. I have to see things in action.
But everyone deserves to express creativity, no matter skill, as I am sure you agree, even though you are obvs a real musician, judging by the 'treatise on Pentatonics' link. I have alot of theory myself, but when I started, I had no idea what Tonic was, let alone the Pentatonic scale. When I started, I just loved electronic equipment and music, and my mother was a concert pianist, and my father's mother a guitarist and vocalist.
