Option to quickly recover tint after fullscreen



  • Hi, first of all, thanks a lot for f.lux, I've been using it for a couple of years and it really helped me with my night browsing habits.

    What I noticed is that when f.lux disables the tint for a fullscreen app, the recovery after exiting is too long. For example - when I'm browsing youtube, the page is mainly white, so red tint is useful. When I play a video fullscreen, I like to view it without the tint (so I check the option to disable f.lux for fullscreen apps). When I go back to youtube it's paifully bright since f.lux takes about 10 seconds to gradually restore the tint, when I expect to see the previous tint level.

    Could you add option to make the transition instantaneous for fullscreen apps (I like the slow transition in regular use)?

    Cheers,
    Paul



  • Right click flux from system tray then click Options and Smart Lighting. You can change the transition speed there.
    Here's a screenshot.

  • Hi, I know about this setting - as I said, I like the slow transition in everyday use, since the medium and fast options are too noticeable for me, so for now I prefer to bear with a glaring white screen for a few seconds when exiting a video.
    Ideally, I would like to be able to have the fast transition only when going into and (especially) out of fullscreen mode.
    Thanks for the input!

    Thanks for this note - we designed the timing for a totally different feature, and what you're saying makes sense.

    The timing is designed for "disable by app" and people who alt-tab from Photoshop to email/chat and back a lot....so in that case going too fast would be not very good.

    But in the case you're describing, going from a dark video to a white webpage, we should do better.
