Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer Personal Edition is a lot easier to use than to say. Despite the long winded name that gives the impression of being one of those programs with dozens of buttons that you haven't got a clue what they do, it is definitely easy to use. 

It took me about twenty minutes to get into it and after that I was away knocking out screen savers ten to the dozen. Anything I did get stuck on I just looked in the help file, no problems. It is an excellent program giving professional results.

It has everything you could possibly want to make your own screen savers and the end results are first class. The only thing Axialis don't supply to make screensavers is your imagination. The tools are all there the rest is down to your own ideas. I have reproduced the makers description below simply because it's better than anything I could have produced.

Axialis Professional Screen Saver Producer is a powerful tool to create and compile redistributable Windows(r) screen savers. It has a fully integrated workspace that permits you to work efficiently and create professional screen savers in minutes. For example, everything can be done using Drag & Drop.

What kind of Screen Savers can I produce? Almost all kind of screen savers based on sprite animation (a sprite an animated and/or moving image). You compile and produce Windows 95/98/NT/2000 SCR compatible files with Control Panel preview. Several options are available: Sprite collisions at different levels with sounds; MIDI, MP3 or MOD/S3M/XM Background music support; Multi-resolution support; Several Background effects; AVI, MPEG, QT Video Sequences support; FLI, FLC, GIF Animations support; Compilation with image compression; Customizable screen saver About dialog box, and more... One more thing, produced screen savers are compatibles with all video configurations (screen size and color depth). A WYSIWYG Editor To permit you to be more productive, we have created an advanced WYSIWYG screen saver editor with full Drag & Drop support. WYSIWYG means "What You See Is What You Get". So no surprise at compilation time, your final screen saver is strictly identical.

An Ergonomic Integrated Suite of Tools A professional tool must be Powerful and Easy to Use. That's why we have created an intuitive fully integrated workshop interface. All is visible and easy to access in the main window: A built in dockable media files librarian to manage your files, a powerful explorer with thumbnail preview to explore your hard disks or CD, an ergonomic Explorer(r) like toolbar with a Recently Used Files bar, a multi-document support, a WYSIWYG editor interface, and more... The application has been designed to be the most ergonomic as possible. An action can always be done using several methods. For example, to add a new sprite in a screen saver project you can use a standard dialog box, the Mouse by Drag & Drop or the Clipboard by Copy/Paste. With Screen Saver Producer you work the way you like!

A Powerful Built-in Librarian A powerful built-in librarian let you easily manage all your media and screen saver projects files. This is a dockable window (which can be hidden) where you can store, move, copy and extract all the files you're using in your work (images, video, sounds and music). Very easy to use: Double click to open a file in a window (even animations, music, video...), use Drag & Drop to add it in a project. And best of all, you can find a specific file using a powerful search feature.

What more can I say? Go get it.
