Would anyone happen to know whether this plugin could grab color information from a Wallpaper Engine background?

It would be nice if the application saved a single screenshot whenever a Wallpaper Engine background were loaded, allowing people to use that jpeg to pull color information easily for other apps. Anyone know if it does this?

I suppose instead of FrostedGlass plugin, Chameleon could do this. Give it a try...

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?

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.
