    Hi,

    I'm a big fan of wallpapers that resemble a hyperspace window from Stargate SG1/Atlantis or any type of SciFi show out there. I have found a few by browsing deviantart and interfacelift.

    Here's a few examples of what I've found so far:

    If anyone has anything like this, I would be very grateful if you could link me to the wallpaper(s).

    Also, if anyone is willing to create any that knows how I have attached a few examples of what I like:

    Thanks in advance!

    I've wanted a screensaver for the longest time of Stargate SG-1 hyperspace, but I could never get it.


    I had at one point (on my old PC) created one from a short video, but the quality was pretty bad. It was an animated .gif



    If you have the means (IE, high quality SG-1 videos, editing program, gif maker etc..)


    Find a good scene showing hyperspace travel for a few seconds. Cut that and make it into a video clip, then split the clip into image files. Now all you have to try and do is find the pattern in the hyperspace swirls and try to match one at the start of the animation to one near the end.

    Kinda sounds weird , but those sections of light in the early SG-1 hyperspace scenes had only about 5 or 6 patterns, they just looped them to keep a continuous effect of light passing by


    I remember in the one I did I found one section to start my frame, which showed a pattern of light in the distance, then I stop the last frame at a pattern of light that matches that, so when played repeatedly, it appears to be a smooth transition



    I'd love if someone could find a way to make a HQ one for use as a screensaver. The Scene I used was that episode where they blew up a sun. It's the only episode where they blow up a sun so it shouldn't be too hard to find lol

    Specifically it was when they jumped into hyperspace to escape the artificial supernova

    I found this hyperspace render on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqHTF7eYYp4


    Edit: I made one using a handbrake rip of the same season 4 show I did before, this time better quality. I matched it up to play in a continuous loop, and can use the video as a screen saver with the "savehollywood" screen saver mentioned above.


    It works alright but I still want the slower blue effect if I can find a good scene with it.

    You can download my loop here: http://files.me.com/i.shaun/ny67lz.mov

    Unfortunately the sound I thought I disabled in quicktime transfered over.
