Our Animated Wallpaper shown!
Tuesday, January 30, 2007 by Frogboy | Discussion: WinCustomize News
At the launch today (see video here), the major features of Windows Vista were demonstrated. One feature we here at Stardock are particularly proud of being part of is the Ultimate Extra called Windows DreamScene. DreamScene allows users to play high-definition video content as their animated wallpaper. Microsoft selected Stardock Design (official announcement coming soon) to create content for it including the one they demonstrated at the launch.
Stardock also has developed software for Windows DreamScene that extends the feature set even further -- to support dynamic content as well as a new format specifically for animated wallpapers (.dream files). The new program is called Stardock DeskScapes and will be released shortly.
Windows DreamScene is scheduled to be available for Windows Vista Ultimate Extras as a technology preview soon after the Windows Vista Launch with it generally available to Windows Vista Ultimate Users as an Ultimate Extra later.
WinCustomize.com is the site Microsoft is sending users to obtain additional animated wallpaper content including "Evening Dream" which is what was shown at the launch (and will be available exclusively at WinCustomize.com). Users of Stardock Object Desktop will get the first crack to use Stardock DeskScapes.
More to come.
