An Interesting Screensaver I Made In Blender

I was bored today and I thought I’d make a screensaver. I set it up so a python script takes a screenshot every time the screensaver is run, so the background of the screensaver is what ever was on the screen right before it was run. And over the background, colorful balls fall from the top of the screen :slight_smile:

It’s not the greatest screensaver, but it was a fun little project for me to work on today.

You can download it HERE

Directions for setting it up are in the README. Please read it before doing anything.

It will look wierd with monitors with a resolution other than 1920 x 1080. There is a simple explanation in the blend file for how to get it to work with your resolution.

Hope you like it. Tell me what you think :slight_smile:


Pretty cool! I’ve never tried doing screen savers before seems like it could be fun!

Yep. All you need to do is rename your .exe as a .scr, and it’s a screensaver :slight_smile:

And if I want it for Linux?
