[prMac.com] Marina del Rey, California - Premier provider of video desktop solutions, Amuse, Inc., is pleased to announce Serene Saver Pro 3.13, an update to their highly popular video desktop and screen saver utility for Mac OS X. Serene Saver Pro replaces the standard still desktop to which Mac users are accustomed, with a gorgeous video desktop that plays high-definition movies of the users choice.
With a focus on ease-of-use, Serene Saver Pro is a unique cross between a video desktop (moving wallpaper) and screen saver, offering an entirely new facet of personalized computing experience. Its built-in video importer easily lets users import their own movie scenes for use as video desktops. Users can now have beloved family movies, movies of friends and special events, vacation movies, and much more as their desktop, or as a superb screen saver.
Serene Saver Pro boasts a wide variety of stunning, high-definition movie videos shot from all around the globe, accompanied with relaxing nature sound effects. Upon purchase, download access to over three dozen additional hi-def movie videos are available from within the software itself.
The application also sports Automatic Serenity Breaks. This feature allows the user to have Serene Saver Pro automatically remind them to take a break. Simply specify the interval or time(s) of day and a pleasant sound chimes, all work is faded into the background and the entire screen converts into a playing scene.
The relaxation period may be determined as well. When the break period is over, Serene Saver Pro dutifully fades the users work back in to continue from where they last were. If at any point there is a need to interrupt the process, such as a phone call or meeting, simply hitting any key stops the process.
Among Serene Saver Pro's most prolific features is its ability to automatically mute its sound at appropriate times. For example, when the user launches a music player, Serene Saver can disable and/or mute itself. When the user finishes listening, Serene Saver Pro will automatically turn back on. Users may designate any set of applications for which Serene Saver Pro disables itself or mutes. Serene Saver Pro can also be set to recognize when the users laptop is operating on battery power, and disable itself to conserve power. Serene Saver turns back on when the user plugs into a power source.
