Oops. I meant to post this in the Chameleon thead. Thanks.

Ok, it happens sometimes. But Chameleon definitely can do what you want.

I don't think it can, since it needs a jpeg in order for it to pull information from. Wallpaper Engine, to my knowledge, doesn't do this. It is an animated overlay on the Windows desktop that the Chameleon plugin obviously won't be able to read.

I suppose you could save a screenshot of the Wallpaper Engine, have windows use it as the wallpaper, then start Wallpaper Engine. Chameleon will then use the Windows Wallpaper for colors. I Think?
Never underestimate the power of stupid! :D

Ok, maybe (probably) you're right. I have to admit I don't know what Wallpaper Engine is, I just supposed it sets from time to time new wallpapers. Sorry if I was wrong...

Nah. Animated desktop overlay.

You could absolutely do that, but then that would defeat the purpose of the plugin setting colors automatically.

More info and example: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=32501
Unfortunately this topic just loops back around to this the current thread. Is there an update on this issue?

Noticed this. Dragging a window with Acrylic type causes extremely slow dragging with extreme lag. Setting the same window to regular blur doesn't have this effect.

1 = Regular blur
2 = Acrylic blur

My plugin TranslucentRM is using same undocumented winapi , so

I cannot fix it, this is Windows bug.

Thanks.

There's probably something that can be done with a Calc measure that shuts off blur while a window is being dragged, and then reenable it when it stops moving.

Acrylic seems fine so long as the window is still.

Would have been awesome to have an OnDragAction for this.
