Rubylith masking film

  1. Hi
    Does anyone use the Rubylith masking film on their screens?
    Does anyone know how much blue and green light it blocks out during the daytime and also an night?

    I have an old laptop that can't run an operating system new enough to install Iris Pro (https://iristech.co/), but it can run Iris Mini. Iris Mini has the color settings 6500K, 5000K, 4200K, 3400K, 2700K, 2300K, 1900K, 1200K (and brightness adjustments). The 1200K setting has a little more orange than how red the color of an opaque red coating 11w incandescent is (https://www.lightingnewyork.com/product/satco-lumos-light-bulbs-s3961.html).

    So I got red acrylic from an art supply store and put one layer on the laptop screen, and that makes the 1200K setting a little darker red at night, more like the red bulb. If the Iris setting is 6500K, the acrylic just makes the screen lightly pink tinted and blue and green and other colors still show through but with that light pink tint mixed in.

    So if you use the Rubylith (because I think it'll change the color about the same as generic red acrylic from an art store; maybe I'm wrong about that) during the daytime it'll probably make the screen pink more than red, and if you use it at night it can be useful in combination with something that changes the screen colors to make that a little bit darker. But maybe the Rubylith is better than generic acrylic. You might also be able to use more than one layer if they're stretched tight enough that the layers don't have space between them enough to add blurriness.
