In PR #4360 I brought back colored sliders for white balance module + added tooltips and options to configure colored sliders colors (or lack of thereof).
Since I don’t have many UI/UX testers I’m asking for your input, especially regarding default options.
Here’s how white balance looks now:
Here’s how it looks with
colored sliders being enabled:
And here’s how it looks like when enabling “Lightroom emulation” for temperature slider (so instead of blackbody radiation, we show effect on the scene):
Both my wife and I agree that colored sliders are way better UI/UX than standard ones (and tooltips help tremendously). My wife however says (and it is confirmed by some opinions I found regarding old behaviour) that having temperature slider showing blackbody radiation instead of scene effect is “a bit confusing and needs at least explaination in tooltip”. One can however get used to it and it makes sense in a way, eg “this is the color of light source that was iluminating the scene”.
My question now is: what should be the default option set for this:
- Gray sliders
- Colored sliders, blackbody radiation for temp slider (with tooltip explaining it)
- Colored sliders, lightroom emulation for temp slider
I would love to know your opinion overall!
