The change between day and night modes

  • I tried to find a topic about this but couldn't find anything. Maybe I wasn't looking good enough but write my own any way just to be sure.

    I'm just curious, Am I the only one whose not bothered from the fast change from day mode to night mode?

    It is nice how the screen turns warmer after the sun sets down but I think the change happens too fast. It kinda feels funny for example if I read something or watch a video... etc etc... then suddenly the screen turns to night mode.

    Could this changing time be set more slower? For example 1 - 2 minutes from cold to warm so that the eye would hardly recognize it? Or may there occur some other aesthetic or practical issues with the time expansion?

    This difference would be nice to experience to see if it's better or not. :)

  • Yeah, there are two transition speeds available in f.lux: 20 seconds and 1 hour, labeled as "Fast (20s)" and "Slow (60m)". For some reason, the default is 20. I'd guess that their reason for making it default to 20 is so that if someone installs f.lux on a slow computer, then 20 seconds would be better and easier to tolerate than 1 hour because it would only slow the computer down (slightly) for 20 seconds instead of 1 hour.
