Lucky I found this app

I needed something to dim a DisplayLink external monitor with no brightness settings — *and* it also doesn’t respond to any of the system color calibration settings… So I knew I needed something to essentially put a software rendered “layer” or “filter” over the screen in order to darken its content. This application does exactly what I need and is simple and easy to use.

Only issue is that the hotkeys aren’t working for me, but they’re not necessary — more in the “would be nice to have” category — so whatever.

Great App!

The app is powerful and customizable, but very simple to use. Customization for multiple screens is great! And great support from the developers too!

Beauiful! Allows full control

I have this set up with option - and option + hotkeys.

It has a great option which will dim the monitor which the course is currently within.

The shade color is customizable, allowing me to set it to slightly yellow to correct for the color balance of my non-apple external display.

One complaint - that the cross fade doesn’t apply when using the hotkey to change dimming amount. But this is so minor.
