Add more visual effects to iChat and Photo Booth

not really mentioned here... but you can drag any of those .qtz files into the "Preview" window of the Screensaver prefpane.

some of them (like Wall / Travelator / Fall / Moving Images / Stix) even came with some oddly named preferences in the "Options" button.

"Image Hose" even appears to have a dropzone in the "Options" to drag your own picture in. (haven't tried it yet.)

some of them don't work at all... or seemingly. but all the ones i listed do. and probably some of the others.

make for pretty minimalist screensavers... but that is what i like anyway.

these actually use a substantial amount of CPU when used as screensavers. like 25% or so.

much much more than i get even from pretty graphics intensive dedicated screensavers.

so probably not actually the best idea ever. but they do work as screensavers. FYI.
