Does flux really remove all blue lights?Of course this is considering you use 1200k or darkroom mode because i doubt higher than that does anything.
It does remove blue lights, reduce a lot, but to a certain point. If you had a shitty monitor (or worse, laptop screen), it will always have a blue cast. Solution: buy a good IPS panel monitor, it's well worth the investment.
Is there a way to tell if my monitor casts blue lights because i tried look at diffrent angles and even turned off the light but could not see any.Also with lights turn off it looks really relaxing.
I use flux on my desktop, it works really well on my IPS monitor. On my android phone I use Twilight, it's similar to flux but requires some tinkering (I don't think the filter is strong enough so I bump the settings up a bit). These filters definitely help me sleep better and at a more normal time.
It is kind of tricky if you aren't used to paying attention to it, but you can try this. Get a sheet of paper with some b/w text or image in it, and open some b/w image and a text on you pc. Put the two side by side, and lower the luminosity on the screen to the minimum, then increase it to the max. If you see some kind of color "tint" in the image on the monitor compared to the paper, then the monitor has a strong color cast.
>no substantial proof that it actually does what it claims
I used to work processing photographs and films, both for printing and for archiving. It is very well know on the metier that every monitor has a color cast and that it disturbs the actual light perception. Also, that blue light is way way stronger than "warm" light; the wavelenght of blue light are half or lower of that of warm light; so the frequency are double or higher (really basic physics).
Blue lights gave me insan dark circles.
Do you think using 1200k will help? I plan on using it permanently, not only at night. I'm already using sunglasses when I use the PC.
If you actually use it, you'll find that switching in the middle of the night from the flux modified and normal screen modes is quite jarring, to the point that the normal screen mode is almost painful.
Of course, if any normies look at your screen they'll always ask why it's so orange but reeee fuck normies
I don't know about circadian rhythms and all that, but the softening effect is really good at night so I'm not staring at the equivalent of the sun
That goes ditto in the mornings too
I also find that it's easier to fall asleep and feel tired when f.lux is operating, so I leave f.lux off when I'm working late at night but turn it on when I'm just fucking around
huuurrrr guys I need substantial proof for everything I do, as I have no way to experience anything for myself.
I think it would.What i will do from now on is disabling flux till it starts to get dark because you need the lights and dont get used to always being in dark then i start it at 1200k and 1hour before sleep i set it to darkroom mode.
Because f.lux increases your fitness levels(removing blue lights for bettre sleep,not damaging your eyes etc.)
Its should be the opposite.The problem is that youre used to the bright blue lights.But if you already was on 1200k it should not be problem and also after a few hours you will see how your eyes are not that tired like before using it were.
dont use it permanently
the whole point of eliminating blue lights is to not fuck your circadian rythym at night since naturally there shouldnt be any blue lights at that time
but blue lights should be there during the day, or else you would be promoting sleep during the day which also would fuck your shit up
Just downloaded F.lux. Where do you guys set it? The default setting is way too orange for me.
Maybe it will be different at night time tha during the day. Sunset should be in about 3 hours where I live so maybe the orangeness won't be so bad then.
