Custom Dynamic Screen Savers

by Erica Sadun

Reader Merlyn reminds me after reading my article today on Quartz Composer, you can use Quartz Composer compositions as screen savers. Just place them into ~/Library/Screen Savers and select with the Desktop & Screen Saver preferences pane. You may want to skip the gradient background and just use a simple black background for screen savers. Use a "Clear" patch and set the clear color to black.
