In honor of the 4th of July: For tip readers in America, here is the best Mac-based fireworks screensaver I’ve seen:
Want to see it in action before deciding to download? We’ve uploaded a couple short video capture to YouTube. This first one is my favorite. The camera is looking directly up:
Fireworks are rendered in 3D with realistic sound, camera flares, and lighting. The camera view can be set to fly around the the fireworks display. Hypnotic.
Go into the options for this screen saver and play with some of the settings. This example has the screen angle changing and flying through the fireworks display:
Finally, here is a more sedate video capture with the camera angle changes turned off.
I’ve been seeing fireworks screen savers mentioned on a number of blogs lately, but it was Guy Kawasaki’s blog that actually got me to download and install it. Thanks Guy!
