Making Screensavers for both Mac and Windows
How do I make screensavers for both Mac and Windows?
Step 1: Create a Flash content using Adobe Flash on either Mac or Windows. Publish your content as a SWF file.
Step 2 - Mac Screensaver:
Place a copy of your screensaver SWF and any local files the SWF requires on your Mac.
Launch Screentime Mac, enter your preferred settings, and click Build (NOTE: for now, making a Mac screensaver requires Screentime for Mac).
Screentime Mac saves a project file (.stpx), and creates a screensaver installer (.app) and a zipped copy of the screensaver installer (.zip). In most cases, you will want to upload and share the zipped mac installer.
Step 3 - PC Screensaver:
Place a copy of your screensaver SWF and any local files the SWF requires on your PC.
Launch Screentime PC, enter your preferred settings, and click Build (NOTE: for now, making a PC screensaver requires Screentime for PC).
Screentime PC saves a project file (.stp), and creates a screensaver installer (.exe). In most cases, you will want to upload and share the PC screensaver installer, as is. In some cases, your client may provide a zipped exe. In this case, right click on the exe file and select "Send To >> Compressed File".
