Lovely work Rab
Big thanks
Hi! I guess U used the ad-boards that i made for Capper's thread? I will make a update soon
Been quite a few changes on sponsors etc this winter for the norwegian clubs
Right now I am going to focus on giving the Scottish Cup's and SPL club adboards a quick update before giving the English Cups and club adboards a major overhaul.

Hi and well done dude, real good job. Its working fine. Just 1 question. I installed first the16.01 ad pack and updated with this one. So I have the FM17 Adboard Project v1.0. There in no update like 1.1 or 2.0 ?? Cause i found this v4.0 update https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/31429/ad-boards . Is it yours or just another one?
just another one
Hello, its still mixing the german with the greek cup ads. Can you fix it?

UPDATE
i managed how to fix it.
In the XML file next to the word ansta1970 it says Greek Cup. You can change it and write: Greek National Cup.
And its fixed.

Great work when do you think will you release the version with the german bundesliga?

Thank you, unfortunetly no one has made any new adboards for the Bundesliga as part of this patch so no time soon I'm afraid

How to make a Video Adboard


Required ResourcesIn this post, I'll explain how to make a simple scrolling video adboard, over the coming days/weeks I'll post a few minor guides for more advanced effects with video adboards such as spinning images, zooming in and out of images etc.

1.
First of all, we need to make our adboard, In Photoshop create a new image sized 2816 x 88 pixels, this is the adboard size I have been using to date. Within the game adboards are repeated once behind the goals and twice along the pitch. This is where the calculator comes in, the gaps between all images (e.g. Sportsdirect.com in this case) need to be the same size. they should also be half the size at the start and end of the image. This will ensure that when the ads line up they maintain the same pattern. Once made from the Layer menu select Merge Layers, then copy the adboard.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%209_zpsk3uwnxyd.png


2.
Create a new image double the length of the adboard (5632 x 88 pixels) and paste the adboard at the start and end of the new image. Again, merge the layers, we need this size of image to create the scrolling effect. As you can see because of the above calculations the gaps between all images are the same size when combined.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%202_zpsks8joleo.png


3.
Now we create our image for the actual adboard, sized 2816 x 88 pixels. We want the adboard to scroll from left to right so once the previous (5632 x 88) image is pasted onto this image we want the end of the adboard to be line up with the edge at left hand side of our new image.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%203_zpsxmdmb0am.png

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%209_zpsk3uwnxyd.png


4.
We now need to create the image effect, to do this we create a Video Timeline, select the Window Menu thenTimeline. Once the Timeline Menu appears at the bottom of the screen select the Create Video Timeline option.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%204_zpspn4b0kmp.png


5.
In Photoshop, the standard timeline is 5 seconds, for this adboard we want to make it 10 seconds. To do this we click on the end of the layer one timeline (highlighted) and drag right until the timeline becomes 10 seconds long.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%205_zpsylsenp71.png
http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%206_zpscovag3nq.png


6.
We now want to create our start and end points of the animation of the adboard. With the timeline bar at the start of the timeframe (Blue Arrow) click the position action then drag the blue arrow to the end of the timeline and click the position action again

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%207_zpsb8uvzkfx.png


7.
With the timeline now at the 10 second point we drag the image all the way across from left to right until the end of the image now meets the left edge of the border, this creates the scrolling effect, if you select the play option in the timeline tab you'll see the effect in photoshop.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%208_zpsnhabs4ce.png

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%209_zpsk3uwnxyd.png


8.
We now save the image. File → Export → Save for Web (Legacy)

9.
Open up the saved image, this time the image will display each separate frame in the timeline and as a layer. We now want to give our adboard a LCD texture. Open the Video.png file and copy the image and then switch back to your gif. Click the tab with 3 lines and then Select All Frames then click on the very last layer.

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%2010_zpsoyvqdqvm.png


10.
Paste the adboard texture. Every frame will now just be the texture, however once we apply the Multiply effect we will now have every frame displaying our intended image with a LCD effect. We then save our final adboard again. File → Export → Save for Web (Legacy)

http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u224/rabcp/sd%2011_zpskxhyamq0.png


11.
We now need to convert our Gif file. First we go to Cloud Convert, upload your gif file choosing a .avi conversion and download the converted file.

11.
In your download folder hold down your shift key, right click and select Open Command Window Here. Assuming that our file is called SD.avi type the following command

ffmpeg -i SD.avi SD.ivf
This will instruct ffmpeg to convert the avi file into an ivf file and we now have a finished useable adboard.
cheers rab, i'll have a bash
