Ever since I have XBMC / Kodi up and running, playing my Movies and TV-Shows from NAS, I had the wish to get what Cinema-Experience and Cinema-Vision call "The Cinema Experience".
For me and my 40 years of going-to-the-cinemas, that's seeing an advertisement, a short-film and a trailer before the movie starts.
I have a vast collection of short films, like the Pixar-DVD ripped to single files and a collection of classical advertisements from the past centuries.
Now, all I want is a randomly played file from each of these, and maybe (but not necessarily) a streamed trailer.
I have tried several times over the years to get this SIMPLE task done with both Cinema Experience and CinemaVision.
But despite the guides, the descriptions, the wbsites and what-so-ever I am completely unable to do that. Cinemavision throws completely unknown phrases at me, completely fails to simply ask me "where are your intro-videos, and how many shall I play before your movie?".
I have NO IDEA what the heck a BUMPER shall be, for example. My car has bumpers. Front and rear. My Movies don't have bumpers, neither have the short-films or advert-videos.
And what on earth shall I do with audio-bumpers? Why should "audio" have anything to do with the "real cinema experience"?
There are guides that claim to be meant for beginners, but they fail miserably at explaining the basics needed to understand CinemaVision to the common no-brainer-movie-watcher. Instead these "beginners-guides" simply expect me to already know all the things that make CinemaVision so non-intuitive.
So far, as sad as it seems, I will be kept out of the experience that this add-on should bring to the user.
It's obviously meant only for total nerds, who already know it all .
