Almost all kind of screensavers can be created with Professional Screen Saver Producer. It creates screensavers based on sprites (small animated objects moving on screen), Flash® movies, slideshows and video clips (AVI, MPEG, QuickTime® and Real®).

The type of screensavers that I produced with Professional Screen Saver Producer are the slideshow type. First of all let's get this part straight, I am at the end of a fairly extensive search for a program that will do what I want. Here are my requirements, I wanted a program that would easily produce Shareware screensavers. These screensavers must be able to have captions and resize for auto-resize those captions. Plus I wanted transitions and a great looking install. Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer fulfills these requirements and more.

Here is how you use Professional Screen Saver Producer. You click on New, then up pops a window that gets you started. The first thing you do is pick the type of screensaver you wish to produce. The choices are a Sprite based screensaver, Slide Show based screensaver, Flash based screensaver, Video based screensaver, and FLI/FLC Animation based screensaver.

I picked Slide Show. The next window that opens is one where you fill in the identifying information about your screensaver project. Stuff like the name of the screensaver, the description, Author's name etc. After that you add the images, you can add them one at a time or en-mass by selecting lots of them. After that you can further sort the images by drag and drop. You can optionally add captions to the images.

Then at some point you pick out the background for your screensaver, which can be a solid color, graded colors, or a wallpaper image. You can also add music to your screensaver.

The compilation of the screen saver executable is by the Wizard system and is intuitive enough for the complete beginner, but with options enough for the advanced screensaver creator. Of course Screen Saver Producer has the ability for you to produce time limited trial versions and the ability to create keys for buyers. One thing that I also found in Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer that others don't have is the ability to set the compression level of the images, really useful if you are producing large screensavers.

I could go on and on about all the things that you can do with Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer but I think that you have enough to make an informed decision. That decision should be to go out and get Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer right now. You can't go wrong if you do! Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer finished my search for the perfect screen saver production tool.
