Quasar Kscope Saver

Looking back over my collection of screensaver compositions it seems that most of ’em might be just a little too “in your face” so I’ve tried my best to make this one a bit more soothing than what you might be used to. It’s all good :^)

“Quasar Kscope Saver” borrows a pair of my Oxidizer renders and places each on distinct kaleidoscope billboards that are then blended over one another, and is bordered with a thick black margin that features a subtle grey system time display in the upper right corner.

    Hi Scott,

    Would you consider allowing me to use the Quartz Composer Code for this with my own digital art creations. Of course, I would acknowledge your copyrighted base work as part of my ReadMe file.

    I already tried a couple variations of my Bryce images and Oxidizer images with your code here at home and the effects are stunning!

    If I could reuse your code with permission, I can publish many Quartz Composer ScreenSavers on my site.

    Or you could rework your code to allow users to place two suitable images in a folder allowing users to substitute their own images at any time and that way the combinations become much easier for all concerned.

    Just a few thoughts…

    Have at it Don, as it says above — “Mods for personal use and distribution are encouraged!” I’d love to see your results!
