What is a render effect and how do I use one?

Last Updated: Mar 16, 2016 12:32AM EDT
A render effect is an option built into CyanogenMod 7 that allows you to change the color of your screen. This can be fun to play with and, depending on the color you choose, it can also be a potential battery saver.

The simplest way to use a render effect is to place a widget on your home screen. To do this, long-press (press and hold) an empty space on your home screen. In the pop-up window that appears, press the "Widgets" button.

Scroll down to select "RenderFX Widget."

Press the drop-down menu for "Render Effect" to choose the color you want to tint your home screen.

Click the "Add widget" button.

A pop-up window might appear asking how many rows and columns you want your widget to appear. Click "OK" to select the default. Now you will see an "On" and "Off" button representing your widget on your home screen. Have fun.
