I’d like to create a cross-platform screensaver for vocabulary building, similar to the OS X “Word of the Day” screensaver as seen at: https://vimeo.com/20513146 – the animation is less important than the concept of randomly drawing from a pool of words and definitions.
Would iScreensaver work for creating such a thing? If so, would I be creating an image or video for each word?
iScreensaver might work for this, using a combination of several features:
- The Image layer : could hold a background image.
- The Overlay / Caption layer: allows you to create a styled text block. This could include your word definition.
- The Overlay /Image layer: could contain an optional logo.
- The Sequence settings with Shuffle and using the “Resume with previous item”
Most of these features are described here: http://iscreensaver.com/help/help07.shtml
iScreensaver is available as a free unlimited time Trial Download, so you can test this out before making your purchase decision.
