    Production Pyra photos/videos/thoughts thread

    I add apt-file search to find any file, not just binaries, in any package of the repository, dpkg -S apply only on installed packages. apt-file wasn't installed by default on my distribution, it's especially useful to find a package which contains a missing header file when compiling.

    Is xrandr impossible to port on the Pyra or there is a chance that we get it ? I thought it was only a software interface for any graphical hardware. Talk is not that cheap actually especially when you do a lot of brain work before talking. I advise you to stop waiting in vain.

    Actually I misread a post by @Askarus , I thought he said that it wouldn't cause delay for now so I was convinced that it wouldn't cause delay. I just realised because I wanted to quote him. If it cause delay I won't argue. Now I feel like I lost my job.

    And? I'm not trying to blame someone but if I had to blame someone that would be me. I was the one who made the poll shift towards dp when someone finally submitted a dp version which was very good. I was an heavy advocate of the angular flame, then the genius version of dp was submitted and I...

    No doubt. It is the dream device I wanted even before it existed. Not if you set Opacity in Tool Options to make it transparent, it works well with not too much opacity especially, I managed to get the same result as you using it. I can see that. You have to set the Threshold in Tool Options...

    Nice, seems like you used bucket filling with very low opacity which is more realistic. Seems like you know what you are talking about, I was thinking that I'd have to do just that when simulating in my head. I also imagined I'd have to spray far from the target. The hard part for me would be...

    Thank you much for this. I may do that. Though it'd be hard to protect the translucent logo which is sticked to the logo plate from the paint. It'd still cost more than a 10€ logo plate. We need 30 people willing to buy, for the logo plate to cost 10€ by the way. I don't know how to do it. I...

    There is more than one color on the lid because of the light, I had to choose a grey, I could have chose a better average but I did it on purpose. It's just an example I'm not skilled in editing photos. Vantablack doesn't exist on a screen. If we don't choose black it'll be hard to choose...

    You can't really do darker than black. I guess it could be textured like the grey logo plate or plain black. There will be some contrast anyway since you can't get the exact same reflectance but I don't see an issue with it, it can even look better.

    I made a black Pyra with a black logo plate using my poor editing skills: Let me know if you are interested to crowdfund 300€ to get a black logo plate.

    According to ED: I'm not here to convince people I just thought that I had to say something since I have the opportunity. If enough people would just ask for a dark color plate since it's better, instead of taking my viewpoint as an attack on the forum, maybe we could have the best color. We...

    Might do that but I'd have to find a good paint. Might do that. The last time I used a tape or a pen like that on a device, it rubbed off in a few months. The Pyra being an all day every day device I'd rather have something sturdy. I don't know if removing the silver plate leave hard to remove...

    I liked the chrome version but it doesn't look good on the video. It may be the camera though, we need a video with not perfect lighting. The black coating looks gorgeous. The logo feels like some pigeon shit on my gorgeous, infinite like, all dark black precious Pyra. I don't know if I can live...

    I thought the translucent logo was trapped somehow and you can't push it against the screen because the plate is blocking, anyway it's better glued. I thought the main function of the plate was to prevent led light from bleeding, well I remember you also wanted to make the lid easily modable...

    I thought the translucent logo wasn't sticked with the plate, that's why it made perfectly sense for me to stick the plate on the case then coat. Nevertheless it could be sticked then coated, unless some paint or dirt would stick on the adhesive or unless the adhesive would dry too much. I know...

    Indeed, and that is exactly why I was saying to TRY to coat the logo plate with the case in the previous post. The chrome looks better to me, it is ok. But I don't like FAKE metal plastic. The black color is way too mismatched with the logo color. And it looks too shiny I much prefer the...

    The hard part is finding something durable, safe and aesthetic to replace the plate with.

    Where are we now?

    Yes, the logo plate is too visible and not so beautiful. It was originally planned to be just a logo cutout but there were light bleeding hence the plate. I don't have unlimited spare energy to mod my Pyra. No, the color of the case hasn't been chose, there will be a pool soon to decide. The...

    Where are we now?

    Yeah I know, but ED has already printed the logo plates and the color he chose is the best compromise for any case color in any quantity. Anyway the black coating would be different than black printing. I'm not asking for anything more than a test along the other coating he is going to try, is...

    Where are we now?

    Where did did I say the logo is a metal plate? The matter isn't relevant when you talk about the look. A metal plate couldn't get coated, the plastic can, and it's a shame it isn't tested.
