This screensaver maker is rather complicated because it does so many things. With this program you can make your own screensavers, for either personal use or distribution. You can have multiple projects going at once, saved with in the program. Within a slide you can add an object, background music, background picture, or transition effects.

You can also add a caption or a marque. Throughout this whole thing, you have many options for moving things around, changing things and plenty of preview options. You can add or change your contact information, and add a logo. This is, Iím sure, only available in the registered version-as it is they are charging a lot less for a distribution program than most.

Adding objects has almost as many options as a regular paint program. When you create it for yourself, you just save it to a folder on your computer. When you create one for distribution, you can make it a self-extracting EXE or as a package which is set up to go on CD ROM or floppy disks.

This is a pretty nice program.
