    Quite simply put....YES. But you need flash along with another program that will turn your projector executable to a .scr.

    *********** Entertainor is what youi want.

    I don't use that program, but I think it means that you create the flash movie, save it as a swf file, and then open the file in flashjestor, and it will convert it to a screensaver.

    Actually you just make your movie into a projector...then use *********** Entertainor to convert the .exe to a .scr.

    Post You could use SWF format directly

    Hello,

    You could use .SWF format alternatively. You could use any version of Flash for that matter. You can probably use a tool like Screenswift (our product) or go for Screentime or other products available in the market.

    Cheers,

    Very few support Flash MX. Most say they do, but I have had problems with all of them accept Screentime.

    But I think the real way to go, if possible, is to make your own in C++ or like.

    Okay.... what if I don't want to pay any money? I dont want to fork over hundreds of dollars for a little program that simply converts my Flash animations into something else....

    FREEWARE

    You could use ScreenSwift, we have made available a freeware version for non-commercial use.

    MX support will be made available shortly.

    Could make your own screensaver in C++, like I do.
