I was wondering if it is possible to create screensavers with Flash and if so how?

I’ve tried a few different programs and none have worked. If anyone has ever done this before, it’d be great to hear from you.

Thanks :)

I’ve never used them but NorthCode is supposed to be pretty good…

There is also a review here of SWF Studio which also allows you to make your SWF into a screensaver…

What software have you already tried?

Thanks for the suggestion Matt. It’s the closest one so far. But when I test the produced screensaver, the process crashes. :(

I can vouch for Northcode! Been using them for many years. We produce screensavers for some of our customers and I cannot imagine doing it without Northcode’s SWF Studio.

And the owner of the company is very engaged in their forums; he has helped me many times with actionscript problems that really did not even relate to his product!

As for the other suggestion, Zinc, I have had bad experiences with their products and have read plenty of horror stories about them around the web! If you are considering them be sure and lurk in their forums to get a feel for what I’m saying! :)
