Cat - Dynamic Dreams, like this one, are only possible with DeskScapes.

Windows DreamScenes plays video files as wallpaper. Period. That's all it does.  DeskScapes is what makes it possible to run .DREAM files which CAN be video but can also be triggered or completely dynamic (like this one).  There's a huge difference between dynamic and video dreams.

As for "giving aways Dreams", Stardock already is one of the biggest providers of free Dream content (if not THE biggest).  Stardock is already the top producer of freeware desktop enhancements (LogonStudio, ObjectDock, CursorXP, BootSkin, etc.). 

So I think it's safe to say that Stardock embraces the concept of delivering free software and content to the community for long term benefit by all (including Stardock).  You may want to learn more about Stardock (you've been here what? A month?) before posting assumptions.

Premium dreams represent a significant investment in time and money.  There are no free ones that I'm aware of that are of the level of the premium ones (most of the premium ones are dynamic dreams).  If you really feel that high quality dreams are truly worthwhile, then by all means, please feel free to create and distribute ones of your own making.

I may have only been posting on this membership for only one month, however I have used many of your products before many years ago before my IT days. Like I said, I was mearly not understanding you charging for the Premium wallpapers. As far as how much Windowblinds or other is selling for, to me it's not an issue and your pricing seems in line for a product that does what yours does.

As far as making Dreams, I am not really into editing video and will probably not be creating any dreams. Besides, I really don't use Dreamscenes either as I'm a minimalist and usually don't install software such as Dreamscenes, Object Desktop, Toolbars(Google, etc.), or other add-ons that take away from performance. Just to note I am running a variety of Windows machines in various configurations. I currently have 3 Vista machines, one Ultimate, 2 Business and my Enterprise version I use at work. At home I primarily using my Ultimate machine. I have Aero enabled, but otherwise I'm running a performance machine. On idle, I'm consuming 556mb RAM just sitting at the desktop which is great for Vista. If I disable Aero, my config uses about 512MB RAM, just to add my XP machine idles at 476MB RAM not far from my Vista machines usage which shows that Vista can be tweaked for performance.

As for "giving aways Dreams", Stardock already is one of the biggest providers of free Dream content (if not THE biggest). Stardock is already the top producer of freeware desktop enhancements (LogonStudio, ObjectDock, CursorXP, BootSkin, etc.).

Well, we finally agree!!! Yes, like I said earlier Stardock has the most expansive Dream site on the WWW. However your quote again brings up my point, for all these things you give for free, it's puzzling why the 5 Premium wallpapers are excluded when you seemingly give away more expensive content. How about charging for LogonStudio, ObjectDock, CursorXP, or BootSkin? Your probably in shock reading this, but at least these products can be used by a wider user base and have been in development by Stardock for many years. It almost seems crazy to give this away and be forced to charge $10 for a Premium Dream!! If your lucky, you'll gross 1 Million on Premium Dreams since you have a small user base, you probably could double or triple that with a nominal charge on the above items instead, $5 should do it!!. I just find the whole thing puzzling.............

Thanks, Jim

Sounds like a business opportunity.  Feel free to start creating dreams and charge $5 for them.

As for an update/tweak on this particular dream, I would like the ability to use my own pics for the reflected image....the same as we have for the actual background. Please Mr. Dev, could you do that for us? I'm sure I speak for anyone that owns this dream...

This dream is very nice however I have noticed when using this dream I have some very serious video annomolies while playing video games such as Quake4 and Doom3 also a large drop in FPS while playing Bioshock. My only solution at this time is to pause the dreamscene before running any games,I have even tried lowering the settings. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this? I am running the following specs
AMD X2 5200+
2Gb DDR2 800
298Gb on Raid 0
Nvidia Geforce 7900 GTX

well I feel really stupid for paying for this one, when I got downloaded it I found it was the same as the dream I got for free but had ignored -except it has one extra feature, and we can't even change the reflected image,oh no I feel sick... room closing... in.... can't ...breath.... think ...I'm ... gonna....aaaaarrrrgggh      

Still, it's pretty damn cool with your picture of choice in the background.

Awesome Dream, guys! I love this with one suggestion, though - I would appreciate the ability to add my own reflective picture as well, which doesn't seem too difficult for you to add (of course, I know squat about this). I think it would be pretty cool to see some guy's handsome face (such as my own), reflected in the water.

I have this DREAM that comes with Object Desktop 2008, but this does not work very well for me ... Every time I restart my PC, the wallpaper that I had chosen go back to the standard. And the option of clouds does not work... HELP!!

Here is something fun you can do with this dream. Make your background image just a simple black image. Set up a webcam on top of your monitor, and set it to take snapshots every few minutes. Set that image as your reflection image. Now when someone sets down at the computer the monitor appears off/blank, and the screen seem to be made of liquid, that is reflecting the real environment.
