Overview

RandomExtra is a tool which helps you manage your screen savers. It picks a module according to your configuration and uses it when screen saver starts.
If you don’t want a screen saver to be picked for the time being, just “deactivate” it in config dialog. With RandomExtra, you don’t need to delete modules from various screen saver directories.

About “Desktop Transition”

Indicates whether the ScreenSaverEngine should perform a gradual screen fade when it starts and stops the screen saver. With RandomExtra you have a chance to override the original “Transition” setting of the picked screen saver.
Options in config dialog:

  • Automatic: Use the original setting.
  • Perform Gamma Fade: Override the original setting. The screen will gradually darken before the animation begins.
  • Immediate: Override the original setting. The transition will be immediate.
