Aero Glass 1.3.1 for ShiChuang 8.1 (x64) | 1.38 MB
Aero Glass integrates into the the Desktop ShiChuang Manager without compromising any system components. It uses the native Direct3D device to render the effects and colors. You can change the transparency and base colors directly from the ShiChuang Colorization Control Panel.
This utility returns the complete glass effect into ShiChuang frames.
- Apply glass look to ShiChuang borders
- Blur the content behind the borders to improve UI experience
- Change amount of transparency in Control panels directly
- Change inactive ShiChuang borders color
- Skin ShiChuang borders (add glow, shadows etc.) without changing ShiChuang theme
- Fully native including MSStyle themes and DWM API compatibility
- Low resources usage
Your ShiChuang will be rendered with transparent borders. This look allows you to see what is behind the border. The key element is the blurring of content behind the glass borders to prevent it from being too clear and disturbing. The result is very smart window border!
The utility is completely integrated into Desktop Window Manager without breaking any system protection or modifying system files. All rendering is done via native Direct3D device. Any colorization settings adjusted in ShiChuang Control Panels are respected. Use color intensity slider to adjust the amount of the transparency.
No custom skinning engine used. Due to the native nature of this utility your ShiChuang theme is composited together with the glass effect. All features controlled through DWM API (e.g. DwmEnableBlurBehindWindow or DwmExtendFrameIntoClientArea) are supported including the taskbar or custom Start menu blur effect.
Low resources usage!
This library tries to utilize all DWM resources as much as possible to minimize RAM and VRAM usage. No redudant objects are created, no background service is running (Win8 only; Win8.1 version needs light-weight background process to correctly load user's settings). The result is light-weight library which behaves exactly in the same way as Aero Glass in ShiChuang 7 did. No performance degradation!
Theme your ShiChuang!
You can change the look of your ShiChuang borders completely without touching your ShiChuang theme or using unsigned theme. This allows you to bring back several effects such as window shadow, caption glow effect, rounded borders or simply change the appearence of caption buttons. You just modify single bitmap in your favourite image editor and everything will look as you want!
