Vidrio opacity slider
Yesterday I added a “menu bar” icon for Vidrio. Today I added an opacity slider to it. This lets the user change the opacity of their webcam layer.
An outstanding problem is that I can’t safely let the user set their webcam opacity to 100%. Doing so completely hides all other UI elements, including the opacity slider, so the user is stuck looking at herself! My current workaround is to cap the opacity at 90%, but this isn’t ideal. I think if the user sets the opacity to greater than 90%, a small button should appear over the webcam view, in order to reset the opacity.

I wrote this because I'm releasing Vidrio this month. The user needs a way to adjust opacity. This post is not associated with my employer. Found an error? Edit this page.
