Hi all,

I remember seeing a 3D itunes artwork screensaver when Leopard was first demo'd using core animation. Any idea where to find this? All I can find is the standard 2D one.

All the best
Simon

iTunes does not have a screen saver. There is an iTunes artwork screen saver or there is the iTunes "Visualizer". The three new visualizers are in iTunes > View > Visualizer

Oh yeah I know the difference between a visualiser and a screensaver but I remember Apple showing a screensaver in leopard that used core animation to produce an album art screensaver in 3d like the old itunes Ad. Was this just a demo they used or is it in Leopard somewhere?

You're thinking of the commercial he showed for iTunes, it wasn't an actual Screen Saver. Sorry to burst your bubble.

maybe the original poster is thinking of appleTV's interface? I vaguely remember something being mentioned about it.

I know what you are talking about...
the commercial is it but..
I remember it being a screen saver (maby i'm wrong) in the leopard intro keynote that was supposed demonstrate core animation. If it was actually a video then how would that demonstrate core animation.
I was a little disappointed too when I saw that this was not one of the screen savers

Maybe it was just a demo of what can be done with core animation. I vaguely remember watching the keynote so I might be wrong.
