Hi Folks,

Saw BBC's click review of vista ( http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/click_online/default.stm ) and they showed us an Animated background for your desktop and that the functionality of the desktop can do alot more than just the gadgets and the sidebar. It was kind of like a new 'active desktop' sort of thing.

However, i'm not too sure how to do it.. I've read it's part of the ultimate version only - which I have, but has anyone managed it yet (it's probably something really simple that i've overlooked)

cheers

Edit: Think i've found more about it here ( http://dream.wincustomize.com/ ), I don't think it's available just yet.. Should be soon though.

check this prog out www.dreamrender.com

its now freeware but let me explain, read the site carefully on how to activate it.

it was once shareware but owners split and abandoned it...so you register through the site but it'll explain how.

dr allows fully animated desktops..you can use video or special effects for wallpaper like water ripples, dizzying effects..etc
the ones that come included are old and kinda suck but its easy to make your own, you just have to tinker or read the site which has some tutorials

others have uploaded thier .dream files but you have to be a member which requires donation i think...but there are some great ones like "mixing the paint"
hope you find that useful but its the best desktop animation prog i've found, its made for xp but should work in vista fine as some have reported, i havnt tried it yet
