Learn about the effects used to bring characters and landscapes to life in The Lord of the Rings themed screensaver.
While everyday users may fault this screensaver for its lack of features, those with more focused interests may not mind its flaws so much. Battles Of Middle Earth Screensaver: Helms Deep gives you an inside look at the special effects used in the making of the film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. True to its name, the application shows you the scene depicting the battle for Helm's Deep. As you watch, you'll see the scene layered one step at a time. First the castle wall appears, then the soldiers, then the otherworldly blue mist. However, since the whole scene takes only a few seconds to render before endlessly repeating, we think many average fans of the fantasy films may quickly grow bored, especially because there's no soundtrack. And since this screensaver lacks any sort of customization options, there's no way to mix up the action. But it is totally free, so special-effects gurus and computer animators might find it at least worth checking out.
