Do we need the artificial glare ?
« on: January 04, 2007, 09:19:30 PM »
I realize that it's a matter of taste, but can the glare on the various buttons be eliminated?

I realize that it's there to make them all look realistic but when we consider all the things we do in everyday life to eliminate glare - anti-glare screens, sunglasses, visors, etc., is it necessary to actually add it intentionally to the screens ? For my eyes, I actually find that the artificial glare makes the screen items even harder to read, not easier, ... just like in real life !

I'm not trying to be critical guys because I really love what you're doing.

When the screens are available for download, and assuming we have the right software, can we users remove the glare ?

I agree that the screens should be more geared towards functionality and ease of use than realism.
I think there is going to be the full gamut of screens to chose from coming out here soon.

Glare looks pretty when sitting at the computer development desk, but in the real world when youre watching your screen from 3-4 feet away, jogging up to a part.... Glare is WORTHLESS

I guess that is why we are all free to design our own screen to suit our own tastes :)
