Great way to manage wallpapers for multiple monitors. Even if you're not using live wallpapers it makes it easy to set different wallpaper for each monitor. I got it as a replacement to DeskScapes and I'm very glad I did.

Wallpaper Engine has a vast multitude of features, including a powerful wallpaper editor, support for both 2D and 3D interactive scenes, extensive scripting support, custom configurable playlists, and almost anything else you can think of that you would want in a live wallpaper app. The price is more than reasonable. You can transfer your wallpapers to Android phones with their free Android app. There are millions of user created wallpapers that can be searched, filtered, and downloaded, or you can create your own with relative ease.

I highly recommend checking this app out, it's the first app I would recommend getting if you're interested in customizing your desktop.

Yes it's paid and proprietary, but it's by far the most convenient way to have moving wallpaper. Just $4.

When you're not on your desktop, you can set it so the wallpaper stops, thus using as little as possible CPU/GPU, has TONS of wallpapers, you can make your own wallpaper aswell, you can customize the frame rate of any wallpaper, you can create a playlists so it changes your wallpaper at whatever hour you want, or after every log-in, all this for under $5! Reccomend it alot.

Anyone know if I can bring my Blender models/animations into this without exporting them as images or videos?

3D models are supported in certain formats like FBX, but 3D animations are not yet supported. You would need to export as a video or use custom shaders and/or scripting to animate things in Wallpaper Engine. 2D animations are supported in Wallpaper Engine through their Puppet Warp rigging and animation tools.
