Stardock, the world leader in Windows desktop customization, released Deskscapes 3 today. DeskScapes is a unique program that allows users to customize their Windows desktop wallpaper with effects, animation and a variety of other options.  DeskScapes 3 adds support for Windows 7 and includes a host of effects that users can apply to their existing traditional desktop backgrounds.

DeskScapes 3 also includes a new configuration interface that lets users easily mix and match between different types of wallpaper. Natively, DeskScapes supports its own popular DREAM format which lets users use video or dynamically generated animated wallpaper. Version 3 extends this format to support what are called “Hybrid dreams” that let users mix and match static images and animation designed to provide easy to create animated wallpaper that are also practical and visually exciting.

Because DeskScapes uses the new Windows compositor in Windows 7 and has a native 64-bit version, users of Windows 7 are able to make use of animation and effects with no effect on system performance.

DeskScapes 3 can be downloaded at Stardock’s website. It costs $19.95 to register it or can be purchased as part of Stardock’s Object Desktop suite of desktop enhancement utilities.

All you need is some programs like Art Studio, Nature Illusion Studio, After Effects and a good mpeg-2 encoder like TMPGEncXpress [only if you wanna create dreams to use less resources, else .wmv also works]

Also you can create the new type- Hybrid dreams by creating a sequence of alpha png's and then building a .NWA file from them in Stardock Skin Studio.
