Grayscale while keeping f.lux active on MacOS
Is it possible to enable a grayscale filter while keeping f.lux active at the same time ?
I know that windows allows f.lux to keep active while having a colour filter
On MacOS though, turning on a grayscale colour filter from the accessibility settings makes the screen turn blue again
Sorry for necrobumping.. I came here because I have the same question. I'd like to have grayscale in accessibility > colour filters and at the same time night mode in f.lux.
I bet this worked when I was on intel mac few years ago but I havent found any solution on M1.
I have tried some BetterDisplay (controls DDC) which worked with greyscale but the red wasnt allright.
Does anybody know any solution? Any other app to handles greyscale together with f.lux?
Or maybe a feature inside f.lux that can switch to grayscale.
If someone asks why grayscale - tune f.lux to the lowest temperature (strong red) and check color palette around blue/purple/pink.. or check white font on red.. greyscale makes the color recognizable.

@petulo thanks - the short answer is that these filters are applied after us, which really should not be the case.
We do something like this for "darkroom mode" that could work (if we didn't invert the screen).
@herf Just came here to +1 the request to add the grayscale feature. I find that grayscale has a very positive effect for me. Being able to run it with f.lux would make night-time computer use much calmer. Also thank you for this wonderful software!
