    I'm getting sleepy? 4 hours after sunrise? What? Also 'Light is making your body earlier' is a nonsensical sentence. Use grammar.

    I used to tell everyone I know to get f.lux, but now I can't do that.

    Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate the bug report. I think it's worth mentioning that this is beta software.

    Is this post strictly for your feedback about text or are you experiencing other serious glitches with functionality in the software?



  • "Light is making your body earlier" is referring to the circadian effect that light is likely having on your body. I think it's based entirely on what your selected "earliest wake time" is - or rather, how long you've been awake and what light f.lux is exposing you to.



  • what controls the "ready for work xx% daylight, for me during day it say 50% with a 5800k value.
    Even if I raise it to 6500 it still only 53%

    It is based on a model of how your body responds to your current monitor size(s), brightness, and f.lux settings. It's a model we've been working on for quite a while. You can look at https://fluxometer.com/rainbow/ if you want some more (confusing) examples.

    A screen can't be as bright as daylight unless it is very very bright, so it doesn't go to 100% almost ever.



  • I think that if you could get it to be truly as bright as daylight, then you'd be squinting. It would feel very difficult to look at your monitor.

    A part of the goal the f.lux team has is giving us very helpful knowledge.

    @TwoCables True - but when your body should be asleep, there are some monitors that are almost as effective as daylight at reprogramming your brain, and that's what those numbers mean.

    Thank you. I think I have one of those monitors. Even at like 10% brightness, it's still quite bright. It's a very high-end gaming monitor, so this is to be expected.

    We have a 2500 nit display in our office, and it actually does get there.


  • f.lux team

    @herf And indeed, when you sit in front of it, you squint...

    Whoa. I can't imagine having a monitor be that bright unless I needed to use it outside with the sun directly overhead.

    @TwoCables to be fair the daylight lighting in f.lux HQ is pretty dang bright

    Oh, now I see why you have such a bright monitor.



  • Ok, thanks for link, so from what I gather from link, these things flux should know.

    1. monitor size,
      2)viewing distance
      3)brightness setting.
      4)your age

    Maybe you should allow to fill in these if there known, or auto fill for popular monitors.


  • f.lux team

    Right, we do get exact monitor sizes from the display metadata, and we approximate viewing distance based on a survey we did of about 5000 people, but we could do even better with more questions!

    @lorna I've only noticed this one bug so far, except that vignette mode only seems to affect the primary monitor not my other monitors
