Black Light

2.3.5
28 April 2019

Adds visual effects to the screen.

Overview

Black Light applies visual effects to the screen by changing its gamma curve. You can invert colors, darken the screen beyond what's usually allowed, apply a color filter, or apply the 16-235 luminance gamut expected by some HDTVs.

What's new in Black Light

Version 2.3.5:
  • Resetting gamma curve more proactively on quit, instead of counting on macOS to do it for us. This does not change the behavior of the app but resolves a somewhat nebulous issue with video capture and/or playback with certain applications on particular hardware configurations.

Interesting program that makes nice effects but it is WAY OVERPRICED for what it does. I'm sticking to the free version until that price get REASONABLE!!!

It doesn't appear to have the ability to adjust effects according to the time of day. That makes it unacceptable for me since f.lux and Iris both do it.

It also doesn't appear to have slow transitions, meaning that effects are applied immediately when you enable it.

I don't want to sit down at my Mac in the evening and have to manually enable it, then have the screen suddenly dim.
Even worse would be the sudden change from dark to light in the morning when I manually disable it.
