Change Your Color Temperature On-The-Fly with CF.lumen for Chainfire 3D
Not too long ago, we wrote about Chainfire 3D, an intermediate proxy driver that allows you to control almost every aspect of your device’s rendering pipeline. Since then, several handy plugins have appeared around the Internet. The latest plugin comes straight from XDA Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire himself.
CF.lumen intelligently modifies your device’s color temperature based on the time of day and relative solar position. Installation and use couldn’t be easier—simply provide the plugin with your geographic location, and it handles the rest. The fun doesn’t stop with the prebaked functionality, either. The color filters for day, sundown, and sleep are entirely end-user customizable. In the developer’s words:
CF.lumen changes the colors of your Android device’s display based on the position of the sun. With the default settings, your display will get a warmer tint (lower color temperature) when the sun is down, to look more like indoor lighting and less like the sun, which causes less strain on your eyes and doesn’t keep you awake as much.
This is an addon for Chainfire3D, you need to have both Chainfire3D and Chainfire3D Pro installed to be able to use CF.lumen
