1.6.4
01 November 2019

Mac screen saver based on the new Apple TV screen saver.

Overview

Aerial is a Mac screen saver based on the new Apple TV screen saver that displays the aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc.

Aerial is completely open source, so feel free to contribute to its development!

Features:
  • Auto Load Latest Aerials: Aerials are loaded directly from Apple, so you're never out of date.
  • Play Different Aerial On Each Display: If you've got multiple monitors, this setting loads a different aerial for each of your displays.
  • Favorites: You can choose to only have certain aerials play.
  • Preview: Clicking on an aerial in the screen saver options previews that aerial for you.

What's new in Aerial

Version 1.6.4:
  • Clarify what HDR means with a popup and clearly say that those are separate files and not just a rendering mode
  • Fix cache size detection that still looked in the read only cache folder in Catalina instead of appSupport
  • Fix an incorrect tooltip for Video Sets
  • Fix old files estimation, move/trash old videos features that would always delete HDR files, and would look in the wrong folder in Catalina

Note: If you are using or planning to upgrade to macOS Catalina, we very much suggest you check this issue about what to expect

I have this installed on every Mac I have, but the latest version (1.5.0) is having problems whenever I try to wake my Macs from the screensaver mode. It goes into a strange freeze mode and I can't login or get out of the screensaver mode. This isn't a problem with one of my Macs running the latest version of MacOS and still running version 1.4.6 of Aerial.

Astounding. A joy to watch. The only screensaver. Posh-posh to all those others. It's been running brilliantly on Mojave since v1.4beta. Just note that you must Quit System Preferences after you install or update it in order for its 'Screen Saver Options' to work. Then enjoy.

There is a 1.4 beta version since the end of Sept., which fixes some stuff. Runs now fine on Mojave.

It also does not work in High Sierra on my 2017 MacBook Pro. This appears to be a known issue.

I am not sure, whether we can expect the developer to keep updating this. It seems more likely that someone else pours their love into this open source project.
