Albany, California--24 May 1999: Imaja announces the release of Bliss Saver 2.2, an upgrade of the classic Macintosh-only animation toy and screen saver. Greg Jalbert, founder of Imaja and creator of Bliss Saver, says "Bliss Saver transforms your Macintosh screen into a gallery of beautiful interactive computer animations. The exotic colors, shapes, and patterns of Bliss Saver are truly mesmerizing. When you play the color keys, it becomes very expressive, like a fantastic visual-music instrument. Bliss Saver is a modern art dreamscape for the new color-enhanced Macintosh models."
The animations have been full revised and enhanced for the latest models of Power Macintosh and iMac computers and OS 8, OS 8.1, OS 8.5, OS 8.6 and later. The interactive keyboard commands have been extended to give users more creative power interacting with the animation. This new version provides a PowerPC native engine for the animations which increases the performance on PowerPC-based Macintosh and clone models.
Registered users may order the Bliss Saver 2.2 update from Imaja for $20.00. The full version, including a color keyboard reference card, is available for a special discounted price of $29.95 for a limited time.
Bliss Saver waits in the background as a standalone application and can be turned off easily. Over 130 animations are included with Bliss Saver. Each animation lasts from 5 to 30 minutes and has many surprising semi-random elements, such as shapes, shape distribution, and color patterns.
Bliss Saver includes standard screen saver functions such as Activate Corner, Don't Activate Corner, password protection, automatic monitor depth switching and more.
Imaja's innovative color synthesizer constantly flows new colors into the animations. A variety of waveforms create endless color effects such as rainbows, blends, stripes, fades, pastels, deep tones, and neons. The color synthesizer can be controlled from the Macintosh keyboard. Every alphabetic key corresponds to a color, while other keys control color waveforms, ranges, and speeds. The original animations have been enhanced with many new color effects and compositions.
The dynamic Bliss animations can be paused at any moment and saved as PICT files for use in other applications.
A printed manual and full-color Quick Reference Card is also included which shows the keyboard commands that control the color synthesizer. Bliss Saver requires a Macintosh Plus or later and is compatible with System 6, System 7 and Mac OS 8, 8.5 and 8.6.
A demo version of Bliss Saver 2.2 is available for download at Imaja's web site.
Bliss Saver is part of a family of Bliss software from Imaja which includes the Bliss Paint animation authoring and live-performance system, and packages of additional plug-ins and animations Waves of Bliss, Space Garden Meditations, Geometric Bliss and Bliss Gallery.
Bliss Saver is available now from Imaja. Suggested retail price is $49.95.
