Some users have DreamScene by whatever means, or other forms of animated desktops...a live update of the desktop (user-configurable / checkbox) would be awesome.

    I don't plan to add animated wallpapers support for fake transparency.

    Do things look ok when you turn on alpha transparency in Console?

    Cheers,

    Oh yes, they do. Merely was a bit hopeful of a live-update of the background.

    The fake transparency works by taking a desktop image and painting appropriate portions of it on the Console background.

    Supporting animated backgrounds for fake transparency would mean that Console would have to animate its own background using DreamScene's desktop. I'm afraid that impact Console's performance too much, so I don't plan to support it. Sorry.
