Magic Window 1.4 – Time lapse sunrises and sunsets on the desktop.

Magic Window

Magic Window shows complete time lapse sunrises and sunsets as your wallpaper. Watch as time slowly moves by and the sun and clouds paint the skies beautiful colors. These are living pictures that progress slowly and are not distracting like video.

The accompanying screensaver lets you watch the Timelapse scenes at faster speeds. Perfect for flat panels and external displays, your friends and co-workers will gawk at your beautiful and amazing desktop.

Created by the same team that brought you Magic Window for iPad and iPhone, the Mac version takes a completely new approach by bringing Timelapses directly to your desktop. We have included some of our absolute best photography including beaches, cities, coasts, and more for you to enjoy while you work or relax at home.

Magic Window for Mac scenes are 1920×1200 resolution which looks fantastic on every single Mac as well as HD displays. These are truly high definition wallpapers, not stretched low resolution videos. Magic Window also fully supports multiple monitors, allowing you to have different scenes on each display.

Magic Window offers a variety of speeds that let you control how much CPU it consumes. On the slowest speed Magic Window can consume less than 1% CPU, leaving your Mac free to focus on other tasks.

This version includes 20 scenes: 5 are built into the app, and 15 are downloaded after you install the app. We use scene downloads so we can bring you more and more scenes without making the app larger and larger. Updates will include additional scenes.

Each scene contains over 1,000 photographs.
