I have downloaded a few .Dreams and have paid for a couple and I must say this is one is brilliant, the changes are subtle but effective.

I just hope that we see more .Dreams of this calibre in the "free" section.

Bug - if screen is rotated at 90 degrees (tested on 1200*1600) then only background color changing, no ovals visible.

BRAVO

Tested! Love it!

It is amazing how nicely something can turn out to be.

It becomes something new every second and more beautiful.
No need to change it for others 'cause it only gets better.
It doesn't stand between me and my work.
It's small and gentle on my system.

It must be a DREAM.

It is a DREAM!

I put it in the Windows DreamScene and work perfectly

  
Erk.

I just wish there was some way to control the colors. I got asked why I was using a pink wallpaper, lol

Anyone have any idea why I can't run dynamic dreams? My desktop kind of flashes black a few times and then continues with the dream that was already set.
*EDIT*
um.. nevermind. Apparently changing the video settings a bunch of times (resolution, monitors) fixed it. Not sure why, but it just randomly worked.

Weeehhhhaaaa..... Best Dreamscene so far. It is dynamic, so it works with all resolution. The design is very simple and yet appealing. Low CPU consumption. The only braw back I think is the coloring. And I can still see little jaggies at times. Hope to see more dynamic Dreams, like the one in Xbox360 is really cool. Hope to see something like that, but at much slow pace.

Excellent idea, just slightly marred by the poor anti-aliasing. I think I'd prefer to use a little more of my cpu for better quality imaging.

rockingcricket : double check your DeskScapes Performance settings. It may help with that... Go to "Personalize" -> "Desktop Background", make sure the "Ovals" dream is applied then hit "Performance Settings" (right under the window with all your dreams listed in it). Make sure the "Quality Setting" is set to "Best Quality" and you'll use more CPU but have less of an anti-aliasing problem

Looks great on my widescreen, but on my second monitor there are weird jagged edges on the ovals, as if the image isn't resizing correctly to fit the monitor.  This is a lovely dream, simple and minimalistic.  Just thought you'd want to know about the jaggies.  I'm going to try to attach an image of what I'm talking about.  The left half shows the jaggies on my left monitor with native resolution 1600x1200.  The right half shows my right monitor in resolution 1680x1050.jaggies
