I need to create a mac.sys screensaver (I have nothing at this time to work with other than the image I need to place in the ss) I am having an extrememly difficult time finding a freeware/shareware program which will enable me to quickly solve my dilemma. I am not a programmer (a goal of the future), and am much more experienced with PC's, but I believe if there is a program which is relitively simple to use i.e. not to much programming capability required, I can get my project done. (I do have two programmers on staff who write C, C++, and VB--pretty smart people capable of understanding--with some effort--other languages.) I need an answer as quickly as possible and will be happy to answer questions concerning web development--my forte graphic related questions, and questions concerning New Media projects--once again forte graphics, but I am learning RAPIDLY great amount of technical information concerning all of the above.

Afterdark (AD) offers a software developers kit (SDK). You can get the AD machine for free, if you download Afterdark on-line. With the SDK you get a guideline and examples how to produce a code resource to be called from the AD machine as a screensaver.If you learn fast this shouldn't be a problem, it wasn't for me at least, but I do a lot of C programming in my job. The SDK also is for free (I beleive) I found it also on the Berkley server and I think on an earlier Metrowerks CD. If you can't download any of the stuff I can help you out with it.

I am not shure about the legal side, AD online is definitely free. I think the AD machine also is free, but you would certainly need a license if you distribute it with your modules. Please get information on that aspect by your own.

Hope this helps,

Peter
