Fireplace is a lightweight cross-platform utility built specifically for helping you animate your desktop activity by bringing a 3D wallpaper on your screen. The animated wallpaper reveals a beautiful room with a fireplace and rocking chair, and offers support for background music.
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry. You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to enhance your desktop activity.
It sports a clean and intuitive GUI that offers a few configuration settings to tinker with. The application gives users the possibility to fit the image to the screen, opt for a full screen view, or maintain the original settings. Plus, you can pick the quality of the 3D animation (low, medium or high).
During our testing we have noticed that Fireplace provides excellent image quality and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even a rookie can make the most out of every single built-in feature. On the downside, it still needs some improvements in some areas, such as the possibility of adding background music from files stored in your computer.
To sum things up, Fireplace offers a simple software solution for animating your desktop activity. It can be installed and configured by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
