Sadly that sort of plugin is interesting but avs is not designed to do that sort of stuff.
1 avs is for visualization purposes only
2 a connection through the internet to retrieve a covers image would make avs slower then crap.
3 if you want the cover image on the avs screen i suggest you scan it then use picture.ape to render it then do whatever you like to it.
As far as idiots go i'm not sure.
But as far as genius goes again i'm not sure. Now when it comes to imagination now thats another story.
