I have tried various screensaver makers over the years and always found them lacking and almost disappointingly unfulfilling. They always seem to be a sandwich short of a picnic until I came across AnimateIT Screensaver Toolkit Enterprise Edition. This is your Rolls Royce of screensaver makers.

These are just a fraction of the features : Displays a slideshow, animated sprites, or both. Over 50 transition effects. Special effects, including the lake and snow or rain effects. Ability to control the behaviour of sprites. Royalty free distribution of screensavers including the ability to distribute as shareware with registration support. Sprites can be a static image, an animated GIF image, a Macromedia Flash movie, or a text file. Automatically create a Setup and Uninstall program for your created screen savers, letting your end-users install your creation quickly and hassle-free etc etc.

It is remarkably easy to use and comes with demo screensavers which you can dissect and a clear help file to get you started.

In short this is the most feature rich and complete screensaver kit I have had the pleasure to come across in all my time in reviewing. The number of features varies according to which edition you purchase but you would surely recoup the cost of the enterprise edition with you first few sales.
