Most of the time Screen saver are generated in flash or general PPT softwares or any other graphics applications. File extension for screen saver is .scr
You need to copy this file to netlogon share of AD server which is accessable for all workstation that is added into domain. In screen saver policy you need to define path of scr file it should be \\domain name\netlogon\file name that's it.
