[Software] Razer Ambilight

Hello folks,
Since I haven't found a program lately, which gives me an ambient effect on my Razer Ornate Chroma, I simply wrote a program myself.

Function:

  • Maps your screen to your Razer mouse, keyboard and mousepad to create an "ambient effect"
  • You can change the saturation
  • Only ca. 3-5% CPU load!

Settings can be found by right-clicking the program icon in your notification area on your task bar.


Download:
You can always download the latest release from here: https://nicojeske.de/razer-ambilight/

Note:
A Windows Smart Screen message may appear during installation. This tells you that my program is not signed by a certification authority recognized by Microsoft. Because these certifications cost a lot of money, which I cannot afford as a student, my program is not signed.

Hm. The installer is in german.
Isn't there already a software of the same name, Ambilight? Or was it Amblight?

Its called Razer Ambilight. It already exist. Ambilight is lighting say behind like a screen that changes colors depending on what is on the screen, so I guess it looks like its coming to get you. I wouldn't know I'm still rocking the Blackwidow ultimate 2016 edition green green and more green. It might be op in a grass simulator though

Yeah, I think he might have made this because the Ornata is not supported with that other program (at least it is not for me), it seems like that program is abandoned now.
Is there already such a program? Oops, my mistake, I probably didn't find it when I was looking for it ^^. As for the installer, I forgot to set it to English. Just download it again, and it should be in English now.
I would like to know how to use this software.

Just download the installer "RazerAmbilightSetup.msi" from here, install it and you should be able to run the program from the corresponding desktop icon. Make sure, you have Razer Synapse open and chroma apps enabled.

Nicely Done. For a minute there it appeared to be working on my all my other gear too, but then they dropped back to my default settings. 😞
I know how to install it. I downloaded it into API source. Thank you.
Thank you!! I just got an Ornata Chroma myself (and loving it) and this ambilight effect on the keyboard is awesome! It's pretty impressive while watching videos or gaming 😃
Endlich ! Vielen Dank für die Arbeit ! :smile_: Nach einem funktionierenden AmbiLight Programm/App habe ich schon lange gesucht.

Super gemacht !
Hey, nice features, but i think there is a big problem here,
In fact, your software copy all the screen, but it should be the extension of the screen, just the down of the screen must be copied to get a full ambilight effect
Hm .. i think at all it is a nice Ambilight Effect.

Could the Color get a bit more intense ?. :wink_:

In theory, you're right. If you take it exactly the term Ambilight is not suitable for my program. However, the effect is what I wanted it to be. If you like I could try to implement a real Ambilight mode. ^^

I'll see if there's any way I can do it. :wink_:

EDIT: Just implemented it!
Release V1.5

Added the ability to change the color saturation with a slider. Just install the new version from here and the option can be found by right-clicking the notification tray icon. ^^

I don't know if anyone else has developed something like this. For myself I built my Ambilight-monitor setup with an Arduino and single RGB LEDs following this instructions: https://imgur.com/a/7jRhp
seems like it would be easy to add since its part of the same sdk, no?

Probably, but I don't own a HDK, so I can't test it.
Really great work! I love how smooth and fast the colour changes! ♥️
Real Ambilight would be soooo lovely! I didn't test it with my HDK yet, but i'll try. Would be nice, if it works with your program too.

But honestly, it must be a lot of work. So thumps up for that ♥️
Ohkie. I didn't test it with HDK yet. But I have some Hue Lamps. I can connect them via razer synapse, yeah we all knew that! But, there is a hue app too, which can synchronize with the razer gear and guess what. It works with your ambilight program! Thats so awesome! ♥️
I'm glad you like my program. ^^ With the HDK the program will probably not work. I can't test it because I don't have HDK. I have not thought, however, that the Hue lamps would work. But I also do not have any of them to try it out by myself. But apparently it still works without a problem ^^.
Yeah, I tested some things. HDK won't work. But in theory the hue lightstrips might work, cuz' the lamps work.
And it's a bit complicated to make it work all together! Anyone who want this synchronized with hue lamps and don't know how, you can just ask me!

I'm not a programer, but is it possible to get this on the razer naga and razer firefly mousepad? Don't feel forced to do so, when it's tooooo complicated.

Again thanks for this ♥️
