Ephemeral is a screen saver that draws animated
giving an ever–changing display of complex, natural shapes that morph
smoothly across the screen and fade out with a gentle blur.
Ephemeral harnesses the power of your Mac’s
to generate the animated fractal images.
This screen saver is an evolution of my Windows-only
Ephemera screen saver that I first released
way back in 1997.
If macOS refuses to launch Ephemeral because it is from an
unidentified developer, right–click on the app icon and select Open
from the pop–up menu.
New in Version 2.1.0 (Felix Feles)
Ephemeral will now always use the GPU for drawing, even when OpenCL can’t
directly access the graphics system. This means no more falling back to using
the CPU with its simpler drawing.
- Significant improvements to the rendering engine have resulted in it running about 15% faster.
- Improved smoothness of the animation.
- There have been a large number of improvements made to the code resulting in improved efficiency and robustness.
