The application uses a mixture of scripted sequences and random effects, giving you the possibility to choose which effect you want to be displayed and adjust how fast you want it to appear in the sequence.
Use an image gallery to create kaleidoscope effects accompanied by music
You can add images to create a gallery that later can be used in the predefined effects. Minutes between image loads and seconds between renderings can be adjusted to enhance the visual effects produced by images.
Audio is also an option you can tinker with, so while the screensaver is displayed, you can hear a melody playing in the background.
All the settings can be saved in a configuration file which later can be used to load different screensaver effects.
Control effects and movements using scripts
Kaleider Screensaver provides you with the means to design and make fine adjustments of the effects and movements, by using the Scripting feature. There is the possibility to automate the displayed effects, by using the record function. While using this function, you can alter colors, images, tiling and other effects and record a sequence. All recorded sequences can later be played.
Instead of capturing screen sequences as video recordings, you can create scripts that run with minimum CPU resources. Script files take up less memory space than video formats, such as AVI, MPEG or WMV and are comparable in terms of length, resolution and quality. Another advantage is that scripts can be easily edited and specific code lines can be removed and appended to other scripts.
Besides using scripts, you can also use built-in features, such as wandering, masks, rooms, surfaces and colors.
Bring the splendor of a Kaleidoscope to your screen
To sumt it up, Kaleider Screensaver provides a handy software solution to animate your desktop and create kaleidoscope effects. The application is easy to install and configure by both experienced and novice users.
Kaleider Screensaver is a software application that manipulates images to emulate Kaleidoscope, Funneling, Mirroring and 3D Mirroring effects automatically in random sequences. A Configuration screen allows specification of which effects are included and how often they are rendered.
The source of the images that effects are based upon can be set to the Desktop, an Image Directory or the Image Gallery, which is a collection of image files that can be displayed with a specified sequence and frequency.
The Wandering Effects option adds a dynamic element of motion to the graphics. The Rooms feature displays Kaleider patterns in a 3D environment, optionally with automated Roaming movements.
In Mandala Mode patterns are shown within a circle, automatically positioned to create pleasing symmetries. Effects can be accompanied by music with the included Audio Player, which plays most common audio formats as well as audio CDs.
Several sample photos are included with the download to serve as an Image Gallery.
