Wallpaper Engine recently received a new update that introduces a new feature called the Iris Effect. The goal of this update is to make realistic eye movements. On top of that, wallpaper creators can also add multiple effects to make it look like the head is moving as well.

Another cool feature added by the developers is the automatic resolution filter suggestion. Using this option, Wallpaper Engine will automatically decide the best resolution filter according to your setup. Now, you can apply wallpapers for ultra-wide monitors without much trouble.
