Screen Saver effects
Ogless uses a huge number of effects that are randomly combined to give a unique end result. The text can appear by zig-zagging in, orbiting, bouncing, spinning and revealing. The 3-D effect text is then manipulated in a range of different ways: jiggle, rotate, spin, sway, dance, dissolve, melt, shuffle, tilt, squash and reveal. The text then exits the screen using another random choice of effects.
Many screen savers are made boring because the background is more or less the same and people soon tire of seeing the same image again and again. Ogless is different, not only does it provide a range of stock images as backgrounds it creates new ones when it is installed. It will also generate new ones at random to be used as the backdrop as it runs. With such a wide range of backgrounds to choose from the effect is never repeated. You can also configure it to use any folder of your images to use as backdrops or force it to use the same image each time.
Among the many images used are some of our own Fractal images - unique to Ogless as only we have the algorithms. These are rich, infinitely varied patterns that you can explore in our extensive gallery.
Why Screen Savers?
Anybody who remembers computers from the 1970s were all too used to finding a monitor with an image 'burnt into' the screen. If the same screen image is shown for a long time the screen phosphor that radiates the light is damaged and whatever has been displayed for a long time shows through any other information displayed - it gets burnt in. The earliest and still most effective screen savers just 'blank' the screen or automatically turn off the monitor and so prevent screen damage.
However, the knowledge that the computer is normally idle when a screen saver is run haunted programmers. Why not use the 'idle' time to display something more interesting than just a blank screen? If an image moves around the screen it will not get burnt into one place. The other less interesting reason for screen savers is security - if someone leaves their desk for a few minutes they may not want the screen contents displayed for all to see.
