Celebrated on January 1st, New Year is no less important to Christmas. As New Year 2013 is approaching, the world is filled with New Year elements. Stores are dominated by New Year costumes, cinemas are filled with New Year movie posts and schools are full of New Year banners. Friends are talking about New Year 2013 parties and parents are preparing for New Year gifts. In fact, New Year 2013 is so influential that even New Year wallpapers and New Year screensavers for computers are in great demand.
Though wonderful New Year screensavers can enhance the atmosphere of New Year 2013, only limited resources are provided online. As a consequence, making customized screensavers for New Year 2013 seems to be quite necessary. Will it be a harsh task to make DIY screensaver for New Year 2013? No. In fact, one can even simply convert excellent New Year Flash to New Year screensaver. To help users better enjoy New Year 2013, three methods will be covered to help them convert New Year Flash to New Year Screensaver.
Method One: InstantStorm
Generally speaking, most desktop screensavers are all SRC files. Therefore, to manage the conversion from New Year Flash to New Year Screensaver, one needs to find out ways to convert the Flash movie to SRC file. Therefore, InstantStorm, as a free Flash to SRC converter, seems to be the best choice. However, when installing Instant Storm, users get hostile apps; when using the software, the operations are quite complicated. Moreover, if the New Year Flash doesn’t play automatically, the converted SRC file will be just a photo.
Step 1: Download and launch InstantStorm. Click “General” tab, type the title of the screensaver with “Screensaver title” bar and import the New Year Flash with “Browser” button.
Step 2: Click “Publish” tab and then choose “Create” button to begin the conversion from New Year Flash to New Year screensaver. When the conversion ends, an EXE file will be provided. By installing the EXE file, the New Year screensaver will be installed.
Method Two: Ultra Screen Saver Maker
Similar to InstantStorm, Ultra Screen Saver Maker is also a tool that converts New Year Flash to SRC file. Though it is not a free program, it allows users to manage the conversion with easy operations. Moreover, even though the New Year Flash doesn’t support the function of auto play, the converted New Year screensaver will retain part of the animated effects of the New Year Flash. Besides that, the app allows users to set various video files as desktop screensavers.
Step 1: After installing Ultra Screen Saver Maker, open it and click “Flash” tab. Then click “Add” button to import the New Year Flash and choose “Create” button to start the conversion.
Step 2: When the conversion ends, an EXE file will be provided. Right click the EXE file, check “Install” box and then choose “OK” button to manage the conversion from New Year Flash to New Year screensaver. Of course, the trial version will pose a watermark to the New Year screensaver.
Method Three: Moyea SWF to Video Converter
SRC is not the only format of desktop screensaver, WMV video can be used as computer screensaver too. Therefore, another method to help users manage the conversion from New Year Flash to New Year screensaver is to convert the Flash movie to AVI video. Of course, the converted AVI video can’t be used as New Year screensaver directly. One needs to refer to a plugin for XP named Windows XP Video screensaver. As for the conversion from Flash to AVI, the y can refer to Moyea SWF to Video Converter.
Step 1: Launch Moyea SWF to Video Converter, choose “Input” tab and select “From Folder” option in the drop-down menu of “Browser…” to import the New Year Flash.
