Works as advertised

My only gripe is that you cannot turn off the pixel grid that appears with 4x (or greater) magnification

This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for

I use Adobe Premiere Pro on a daily basis and do a good bit of compositing both in Premiere and After Effects. After Effects has a great little “Info” window that tells you the color and positino pixel info of whatever your mouse is hovering over. This would be really useful in premiere as well, but doesn’t exist. The closest thing in premiere I can find is to use “Ultra Key,” select a color, and then see the pixel info, but that’s a really clunky process.

This app gives me real-time pixel data anywhere on my workspace. It’s beautiful!

A sincere thank you to the fine folks at Sol Robots!

Measurements start at 1,1 intead of 0,0!

The ruler is effectively useless. You can set an origin and then measure the distance to some other point. The problem is if you set the origin, the initial value of W and H are 1 and 1 instead of 0 and 0! Move a pixel to the left, and it goes from 1 to -2. So, if you have positive measurements, you need to subtract one, but if you have negative measurements, add one. Sure you can do the math, but for $4.99 you shouldn't have to.

Thanks for your feedback. How best to measure distances was a difficult design decision to make. The mouse doesn't move between pixels but rather on them. Where do you measure from? Measuring from the middle of a pixel would always give you an extra half pixel, which isn't particularly useful. So we choose to measure from the corner of the pixel you start from to the corner of the pixel that you end on, such that both the start and end pixels are included. This is great for measuring the whitespace between two screen elements, simply mark the beginning of the whitespace and move to the end of the whitespace.
