Here is a screensaver that you can play with for quite a while in setting it up. Basically what it is various shapes moving around. That may not sound interesting untill you get into the settings. Your objects are Cones, prisms, cubes, spheres, triangles, squares, donuts, donuts emitters, and mesh objects. There is also color blended triangles, color blended squares, wisps, hearts and heart emitters. You can set the shape movement speed, and click on or off on cycle colors and X, Y or Z rotation.You can also set the number of objects you want. Then there is a button that says more options.

You can set it for star field, and that has a whole page of options, such as how many stars and what kind of starfield you want and more. Or you can run this on your own pictures. [jpg only] You can display the time, date, holidays or a countdown. There is also an option for e-mail, internet, desktop wallpaper, rendering, sound alarm, weather data, video mode/thread priority and special effects. Special effects allows you to add fog, set fog density and color, configure the emitters and set motion blur.

There is a lot to play with!
