Does Digital Vibrance counter f.lux?



  • So, there's this digital vibrance option (for nvidia users Nvidia control panel>Adjust desktop color settings> Digital vibrance) Which I had on 80-90% most of the time. Thinking about turning it on again but I use f.lux and I was curious to know if Digital vibrance kills f.lux, as in that it removes or reduces f.lux's affect or maybe even does the opposite, does anyone know?



  • No. Try it for yourself and see.

    Have you tried them together? Does the screen appear different? I'm not familiar with the feature so I'm curious now.

    It works the same with and without f.lux. It makes colors more saturated and vibrant. 0% is pure black and white, and 100% is overkill on color. With my monitor and my eyes, I prefer about 65-75%.

    Even with f.lux at 1200K, it works the same, except within that color temperature.



  • yes it is very different. I use it because the colors are a lot "stronger", easier to see things sticking out in what I do. With F.lux aswell it looks a little odd and I don't know if it even helps me (I just formatted my HDD so no exact way off telling yet) but since the combination (and DV alone after not having used it for a while) felt like it was tearing my eyes just slightly I thought I'd ask here if anyone knew the effect of both, maybe I'm better off finding out what DV changes on it's own first.



  • Interestingly, at 0% Digital Vibrance, the difference between 6500K and 2700K or warmer just appears to be like changing the contrast and brightness or something. After all, it's black and white. lol At 100% digital vibrance of course, the change between 6500K and like 2700K and warmer is much much much much more pronounced. At 50% (the default), it's just.... well... it's just f.lux. It's 100% normal.

    I like increasing the Digital Vibrance though, and it seems to be absolutely no problem with f.lux for me. None. Plus, it takes about 3 seconds to adjust Digtal Vibrance for experimentation. Ahem.

    Digital Vibrance is a separate filter about saturation and as I recall it is compatible with f.lux.



  • It's certainly compatible on my computer. It even feels like there's no way that it couldn't be.
