Developing screensaver in C#

VMI
How difficult is it to develop a screensaver in C#? The screensaver would be
composed of several images and each image would be displayed on the screen
for a few seconds. The only difficult part would be that there should a
smooth transition between images.

Thanks.

VMI,
It's not too difficult to write a screensaver, especially if you don't try
to reinvent the wheel! There are a number of C# samples over on
codeproject.com, as well as a screensaver "Starter kit" that comes with one
of the C# Express editions, I believe.

I remember I downloaded a sample from codeproject a few years ago, but I
haven't been able to find them.
