The new version adds the capability to create professional quality screensavers for Mac OS X from QuickTime video and Macromedia Flash. Version 2 also creates screensavers compatible with Mac OS 8 and 9. All screensavers created for the traditional Mac operating system now appear in a single screen saver control panel. Screensavers created for Mac OS X integrate seamlessly with the operating system’s built in screensaver control panel, according to Angie Altfillisch of ScreenTime Media.
Other new features of the new version include a new WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get) authoring environment, the ability to “bounce” movies around the screen as they play, small previews playing in the control panel and one click installation.
For a limited time ScreenTime for QuickTime will be bundled at no extra charge with ScreenTime for Flash, ScreenTime Media’s screen saver creation tool for Macromedia Flash. Upgrades to version 2 are free for anyone who has purchased CineMac for QuickTime this year. Upgrades from any other ScreenTime Media Mac screen saver creation software are US$99. For new users, pricing starts at $199. More info and downloads can be found at the product Web site.
What’s more, ScreenTime Media has also announced the release of ScreenTime for Flash MX. New versions are available for both Mac and Windows and fully support Flash MX. The release of Flash MX raises the bar of what’s possible in graphic design — and what’s possible for screen savers, Altfillisch said. There are also new features including video support, dynamic loading of images and sound, new graphic design tools and color mixer enhancements.
“With added support for Macromedia’s Flash MX, ScreenTime for Flash remains on the cutting edge of multimedia tool development,” Altfillisch said.
