    Hey guys,
    I am new to converting videos to other formats and i want your help. I got the Apple Demo from the Apple store today and i just wanted your help on how to convert it into a screensaver format so that i can set it as a screensaver. It is the new ipod nano ad without music so if any of you want it aswell, tell me how and ill put it on the internet.

    Someone already went to the Apple Store and got the demo video & posted it here on MR. You can use SaveHollywood

    The "SaveHollywood" software isn't a TRUE video to screensaver converter. It's basically just a video player that is activated when your screensaver mode is activated. I could just open a .MOV in Quicktime, set it on full screen, and have it looped playback and get the same result.

    Does anyone know of a way to take a video file and convert it to a real screensaver file? I do a lot of motion graphics/animations and would love to use one of my animations as a screensaver that I can send to people. I know such software exists for the PC world, but havent heard of a Mac option.

    Anyone know?

    Quartz Composer, part of Apple's Developer Tools. You can map QT movies (and even live video from a DV cam or iSight) to a number of modules. No way, that I know of, to support audio though (although you can use audio as an input source to affect other parameters.)
