new version

  • flyout images should no longer be blurry
  • playlist functionality improved
  • “cycle image” button added to details view, cycles through the first 5 image search results
  • improvement to how multiple tags are displayed in details view
  • improvements to loading process
  • you can now favorite, runner up and organize multiple items at once
  • non-scene item tags should now auto-populate correctly in details view
  • google image search should no longer error if no results are returned (if this happens you probably have a misconfigured api and will see a message in the log)
  • category auto-thumbnail reverted for now, performance was not good
  • when adding a new tag to a scene, it will populate at the top of the list. subsequent loads of the scene will order tags alphabetically

  1. error creating database .db file on network storage device. Message as follows

    Database Update
    Current Version -1 Target Version 17
    File Path

    Clicking OK will execute a series of CREATE, UPDATE, INSERT and DELETE statements against the above database. Your data will not be affected. It is highly recommended you backup your database before performing this update.

    This update is mandatory for PG v3.16

    Cancel OK

    I’ve searched the net to see if other users are having a similar issue but It appears my issue is unique. Is it because I’m attempting to run the program from a network storage device on my home network and it cant access the net? Clicking ok causes a force close through windows with a message saying the program has stopped working and has been closed blah blah will provide solutions if any are available. I’m trying to do this through a network storage because my personal PC doesn’t have the storage space to accommodate my video library. Program appears to work correctly while running on desktop and dragging files from local storage. Does dragging a file into program transfer / make a copy of to store in .db or does it store the path to file and pulls from that path to access video?

    btw your program is awesome from what I can see in the tutorial video and I think its the perfect solution to my unorganized library

  2. First of all, nice work. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this myself – perhaps now I won’t have to 🙂

    My observations:

    – Add an explanation to some of the settings. It’s not always obvious what they’re for. Organization in particular. An on-hover pop-up should do nicely.
    – Add links to Google API console and CSE. Perhaps also a short help, such as: First create an API key in the API console – you need the API Name and Key (under Credentials). Next create a Custom Search Engine – you need the Search engine ID. Make sure to enable image search.
    – Add a profile link to star profiles. So I can link to their website or similar.
    – Add link field to websites.
    – Currently all stars show the female icon in the overview. This is confusing. Perhaps use the same icons as in the details view.
    – Cycling images don’t always work or is slow. Perhaps show some kind of activity/progress indicator – the button itself can be used for this.
    – [Bug] I managed to freeze PG by mashing the cycle image button.
    – Cache image search results so as to not eat away at the CSE search limit.
    – Count the number of times the cycle image button is clicked, and ask if the user wants to perform a new search (in case the CSE settings have changed) or get the next five results, after a certain number of clicks.
    – Let the user know when the image search fails and why, without having to look in the log.
    – When editing a title, many characters are subsequently stripped. This is annoying. It’s fine on import (but make it an option), but not when explicitly changing it.
    – Back covers can be added, but aren’t shown anywhere.
    – The extracted scene thumbnail isn’t always the best. Add the possibility to replace it with another image.
    – When choosing categories from the list, mark those that are already assigned. Perhaps also move them to the bottom of the list.
    – [Bug] Creating a DB on a network share (\\MACHINE\Share) doesn’t work. A 0 byte file is created. PG then crashes trying to upgrade it from version -1 to 16. Until this file is deleted it’s impossible to start PG again.

    1. It seems like you have experience setting up Custom Google search. A lot of us are having trouble with this. So maybe you could be so kind to give us a step by step guide. Also you have a lot of ideas and mentioned you have though about designing your own perhaps you could offer to help PG.

    2. thanks for the feedback

      – i updated the organized tooltip
      – i added links for the google image stuff, but this part is annoying, especially for noobs. i had a big screenshot walkthrough at one point, and then google changed their site.
      -i’d like to add a section to support all the social media accounts for stars, its coming
      -i’ll add website link in next version, i even have commented code for it
      -that female icon is the default star icon. not sure which icon you are referring to in the details view
      -yeah i could probably polish the image searching ui a bit
      -it searches async and i didnt put in any safegaurds so if you go ham on the button, yeah, you’ll probably break it. hah.
      -it’s actually querying for 5 results each button click and cycling through them :s not very efficient i’ll admit
      -option has been added to prevent items being renamed on import
      -i tried to do dvd back covers before, but i could never settle on a nice enough way to display them. i’ll try again soon.
      -custom scene images in a future update
      -the categories in the list thing is really tricky. the lists use a master shared collection, which has the advantage of updating automatically when items are added and removed, while having all the information i need to save the changes in the database. i played with creating copies in the past but it was an unpleasant experience. maybe i can revisit this in the future.

      1. Certainly took me a bit of head-scratching to figure out that it wasn’t enough to just set up the API, but that I had to create a custom search engine as well…

        Some clarifications:
        – Link field should be available for scenes, DVDs, stars and websites.
        – In the star details view you use the common gender signs, when choosing gender. Might as well use them in the overview also, instead of the one female icon. As it is, without a photo, they all look like they’re women.
        – Cache the first 5-10 image search result URLs, and then use the cache when cycling. An expiration of one week would probably be a good idea. Also an option to fully clear the search cache.

        Some more observations:
        – When creating a star, no gender is assigned by default (try filtering on female), but the female sign is still displayed in the details.
        – [Bug] Not sure when exactly, but all my scenes and DVDs suddenly lost their release date info.
        – It should be possible to resize the tiles in the various overviews.

        1. -what are you linking to on a scene?
          -the female icon is a placeholder, it doesn’t represent anything. perhaps it should be the gender by default, but it would still look the same 99% of the time
          -i dunno about caching. how often are you actually cycling. in my usage, i add a new item, cycle for an image i like, and never press it again
          -again i think it is just a misleading default icon re: star gender
          -use SQLite Browser to confirm that there is no date data in your database
          -tile resizing is super tricky, home screen included. not anytime soon i dont think.

  3. I have some duplicates and even triplicates of some stars and some cats. What is the easiest fix, that hopefully I don’t have to manually change many scenes?

    Love all the progress you have made in the last few weeks. Keep up the good work!

  4. Aliases for categories. or is that the description button? Also if you add an alias and it already exists, it adds the original to the alias. For example I have two stars Jen Black and Jen White, but they are the same person. I add Jen Black as an alias to Jen White. PG should add Jen White to Jen black.

  5. The Crash Problem stil exists, but i don’t think it has something to do with the 4K Resolution. I added 9 Scenes at once, it loaded the Live-Preview for the first 6 Files, the other 3 has no Preview and the Program crashes.

        1. I don’t think it is a single Scene. Because i found a Workaround for that Problem. I must rename one of the 3 new Scenes and then i can PGV3 start again. When it is running, i rename the Files back to the original File Name and then everything works, They are readed correctly and the Live-Preview works. After this i added only max 6 Scenes at once and for now it works.

  6. I’d like a album feature for the stars when you go into their details page. Cycle through images I’ve chosen or open up a drop down or something like that with pics I’ve chosen. For example I want two pics for each star. One from the front and one front the back.

  7. I really like the new playlist function with the filters. It’s everything I wanted and more. Now my next suggestion is a utility that can combine duplicates ( stars, categories, or websites.)

  8. Very nice work, thank you. This Version is working very well now for me. Stars Images are fixed again. Did not found any Bug so far. But maybe it is possible to double Click the Stars? When you in the Stars-Tab, you can only open the Flyout with rightclick and then on Detail. But maybe it is easier to double Click it, to open the Flyout?!

    Another idea is maybe a Thumbnail-Function? I have an Thumbnail JPEG File for every Video-Clip to have a overview of the Movie. Maybe there is a way to integrate something like this? Maybe a Button where the “find on Disk” Button is to set a Path to a Thumbnail-File. But this is only a Idea 🙂 Or a Button that opens the Folder with the Video-File.

    1. Oh oops, it opens the Folder when i click on the File-Path. But would be a nice Feature anyway with Thumbnailfile-Icon and Double Click to open Star Flyout.

      1. Found one more big Problem i think – it seems like there are some Problems with 4K Video-Files? I added two Scenes with a 2160p Resolution, but this let crash Pornganizer. Maybe it has something to do with the Live-Preview?! When it is in the Database it crashes everytime i start the Program on the Scenes Overview.

        And here some more Ideas for future Version:

        – renaming Stars-Names on rightclick?!
        – adding more Haircolors?!
        – add Hair-Length to the Stars Details?!
        – Detail-Flyout should opens automatically after adding a new Star?!

          1. Looks like the Bug with the 4K was my PC. All Videos had no Thumbnail anymore in the Windows Folder. I restarted my Computer and everything works fine again. Don’t know what it was, somethink bugged the Preview of the File.

            Ah okay, middle Mouseclick works fine for the Stars Flyout. But maybe Double click will be an alternative. It has no function in this Window so it would be nice to use it for open up the Flyout 🙂

            Love that you realize all of the Ideas here… Keep this good work up! Getting better and better with every update.

  9. Is there a way to move the images for stars from v2 to v3? Or do I have to start over and add them one by one so google can add images to them?.

    Could you also implement a number on each star that indicates how many scenes I have of them?. Thanks

  10. Great job on Pornganizer! Love this program! This is probably a bit outside of the scope for this forum, but could someone please point me in the right direction towards setting up a custom image search API? Because I’m assuming you have to make your own, and that there is not a universal API Key Name that you can just plug in?
    Like, what sites do you guys include in your searches? I’m new to the subject but really like the idea of not having to download images manually. Many thanks!

    Like

    1. You have to register as a google developer and create a project. This gives you an API key and name. Then you enable custom search engine in google API’s, this gives you an image search key. You don’t need to include any sites manually.

    2. At one point I was able to set up the custom search. Then Google changed some thing. Now I have about 5 different projects but can not find all 3 items PG needs. Maybe it’s me but I find the whole thing more difficult then it needs to be. I click on one wrong thing and I am down the rabbit hole. Also for me I didn’t like the images in most cases. Also the Search only works for new items. Existing items you need to add images manually.

      Just my 2

      1. It needs to be that difficult because otherwise I would have to pay. You need one project, which gives you API key and name, and then enable CSE, which gives you the custom search engine Id. The latest version has a “cycle image” button which will cycle through the first 5 results.

  11. This is looking a lot nicer than the previous versions. I’m just wondering if you could maybe add a setting so that the program ignores filenames. I’d like to keep the naming convention I’m currently using outside of pornganizer, but it insists on changing it whenever I import a file or even add a tag. I understand that it probably has to do with the auto tagging, but I’d definitely prefer to tag stuff myself instead of having to fix the filename each time. Also, it doesn’t seem like settings in the options menu are saved after closing and reopening.

      1. It tends to remove all hyphens, square brackets, any mention of resolution like “720p” and it removes “.com”, all of which i’d ideally like to keep. It also sometimes puts unnecessary spaces between words.

  12. Is there any reason why you don’t keep local copies of the images assigned to categories, dvds, etc.?
    I think that would be much more performant (especially for larger collections) than downloading them every single time.

      1. Is there anyway in future editions that PG could read a folder with images in it? Name a folder star and name each image with the star name and auto import?

      2. Of course, I was just wondering if there was any specific reason to implement it that way instead of automatically downloading them so users don’t have to worry about it.

        1. oh. mainly because it requires pg to save files on the users PC, which you can’t actually do until you’ve set a folder in settings. i like the images saving by url, but i don’t have the biggest collection with all url’s yet. perhaps i can add an option to change the default behavior to save the image instead, provided you’ve set the organization folder.
