Procedural generated Screen Saver & Live Wallpaper
RANDOMLY GENERATED SPACE WALLPAPER & SCREEN SAVER
Enjoy a flight through randomly generated starscapes as your wallpaper or system screen saver. Mathematical functions will be executed directly on your graphics card to generate endless combinations of stunning star constellations and space nebulae in real-time!
THE BEAUTY OF MATH
Every frame will be calculated based on different random and noise functions. Never get bored again to see the same picture or video over and over again. Click on the Dock icon to randomize the current scene at any given time.
HD SLIDESHOW MODE
In slideshow mode, high definition images will be rendered in highest quality based on a configurable time interval. This mode also uses the least amount of system resources.
Adjust the render quality, the number of stars, animation speed, nebula frequency and music volume.
SAVE AS SCREEN SAVER
Not just a great desktop background, save Starscape as real system screen saver file!
EASY ON YOUR CPU
All graphic commands will be directly executed on your graphics card, which leaves your CPU free for more important tasks to work on.
Stellartux completes your Starscape experience with a wonderful ambient soundtrack.
No need to search for great multi-screen themed backgrounds anymore.
Enjoy procedurally generated starscapes on all of your screens!

The constellations are a wonder to many people and good pictures of stars are always appreciated. Apple really likes them as well, including its own iteration of the galaxy with OS X. There’s definitely something iconic about stars on a Macintosh. Starscape is the perfect app to enjoy a new render of stars every time look. It’s always moving to create something new and beautiful. The app also supports screen savers if you prefer to use it for that instead of a live wallpaper.Jacob Penderworth
