Would like to see a product to export .Saver screensavers

I would like to see a new product that exports .Saver files, in a similar way that QuartzBuilder exports Applications. Pro of QB is that the QTZ file is not easily extractable from the package contents. I would like to see that in the Saverbuilder. And I would pay good money for this app!!!!!

I think that saving to a Saver file was discussed as part of QB originally and may be possible... but it seems like there may have been some problems with that since it wasn't implemented.

It would definitely be an interesting option, but it would be nice to see it in QuartzBuilder.

Indeed, that would be nice. Right now I use PackageMaker from Apple to create an installer. That way I can install the v002 blurs in the right folder, and the qtz in the ScreenSaver folder. It's a workaround, but it does work.

The right way, of course, is to use XCode, and to export the blurs into the .Saver package itself as a resource / plugin. But then you need to delve into XCode, which is hard for some some users (that would be me).

Yes, as @gtoledo3 said, this was part of our initial design for QuartzBuilder. (Though there haven't been any particular snags, we just haven't had the resources to finish it up yet.)

Feature request noted. I'll move it up in the priority queue.
