[Request] Monitor Fading enhancement

Hi!

The new Update of DisplayFusion is awesome. And I really like the Monitor Fading feature which is pretty nice.
However, I think it would be even better if one could set it up as the following:
(1 / high priority)
- Primary Display never (!) faded out (good while gaming etc.)
- Second Display(s) faded out by default
- When clicking on a Window (or maybe even anywhere) on the dimmed second Display, the Display should no longer be dimmed until Mouse is back and clicking on primary Display.

(2 / low priority)
- When a video is playing on the second screen, dimming ends automatically until video playback is over

Is this somehow possible? At least the first scenario would be awesomely great!

For scenario 1, it sounds like you basically want a combination of "Fade non-primary" and "Fade non-current monitors," is that correct?

For scenario 2, I'll add that to our feature request list :)

Thanks!

That's absolutely correct. Is there any chance to get it like that?

If I may add to the requests, if there were a slow timed fade in and out option, in a darkened room, if you look at the monitor before "activating" it and it brightens it puts a strain on the eyes. Also, if you minimize on an active monitor it switches to another monitor with the active window, even though I am still using the first monitor, so maybe a little better priority determination, maybe follow the mouse more closely or something?

P.S. When in steam while moving the mouse across the different tabs the fading "flickers" on and off, had to turn it off because of it, but I am really excited for it in the future. :)

Hi - long time user, first time posting...

OP's scenario 1 is exactly what I'm looking for also.

My Scenario:

We do a lot of developing where we might be coding on primary screen and previewing on secondary monitor several times a day. It would be incredible if that secondary monitor fades away when we're not previewing. But when we are previewing, do not fade the primary mode so we can instantly review code alongside preview.

Settings could be as straightforward as simple checkbox before the "Monitor Fading Mode" picker list (and reword picker menu if option selected obviously)

[x] Never fade primary monitor

That would be awesome thanks.

I think someone already mentioned here an option to fade in and out of focus rather than an instant switch.

A 250ms - 500ms fade would make switches in window focus less visually jarring.

+1 on the "Do not fade the MAIN display" option.

Been using display fusion for years and this feature is something I badly needed since. I'm a video editor/animator with 6 displays and having the option NOT to fade the main display would help a lot.
