The only product in its class - Designer is an editing and creation tool for making screensavers. It is truly 'cross-platform', in that you can run Designer on either Mac or Windows, and each version can create screensavers for both Mac and Windows. Other products advertise that they support both Mac and Windows, but these solutions require you to run software on both systems, and create two project files, and edit artwork on both -- resulting in nearly 4 times the work!

What's New In Version 3.5?
