Bug report: Screenshots are affected by screen color change.

asked Mar 4, 2017 by Tobias Bergkvist
I didn't find anywhere to post bug reports, so I decided to do it here.

When taking a screenshot (using snippingtool in Windows 10) while using one of the screen color filters, its color is affected, meaning the filter is basically added twice when I look at the picture.

Anyone else has experienced this?

I am using the screen effect Achromatomaly and color temps of 4200 (day) and 2400 (night)

os: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit,
cpu: Intel i7 6700K (skylake),
gpus: 2x Asus GeForce GTX1080 Advanced,
monitors: 1080p60Hz (FHD), 1440p75Hz (qHD)

License: $10

This is normal and just can't be fixed. You need to pause Iris.

I'm interested why do you use the color blindness effects do they help you see better?

The current answer is 100% false, as I've begun experiencing this issue in the last day but never experienced it before. It is definitely either a bug or a setting that has been changed somewhere but I cannot identify either.

I have just installed Iris 0.9.2 and I have the same problem.
This doesn't happen with Iris Micro.

I was about to pay $10 for the licence, but having to disable Iris every time I want to do a screen dump is a big turn off.

Andrea, after the first installation of Iris you are using High-level color API.
You just need to restart your PC once and this will be fixed.
