- Color blindness affects a large number of individuals, with protanopia and deuteranopia being the most common types. In individuals with Northern European ancestry, as many as 8 percent of men and 0.4 percent of women experience congenital color deficiency.
Like 5 to 10% of men I inherited a red/green color deficiency which results in me seeing colors slightly different than normal people. My inability to see colors exactly as normal people do has never been a problem in terms of working within Vegas.
That was until Version 15. I am unable to adjust to the visual changes to the GUI in V15. Everything blends together and is very off putting/confusing to my eyes.
I'm reminded of the NFL football game from a few years back where a portion of viewers couldn't tell the team due to a new "color rush" jersey design: http://deadspin.com/stupid-nike-uniforms-wreaking-havoc-on-colorblind-nfl-f-1742272136
Nike introduced some stupid new uniforms for tonight’s Bills-Jets game, and the color-on-color combination is especially bad for people with colorblindness, who are taking to Twitter to let the NFL know their displeasure.
We’ve simulated what the game looks like to people with red-green colorblindness (using the formulas supplied here) in the video above. Below, you can read some colorblind fans’ (and media members’) reactions. Up to ten percent of all men suffer from red-green colorblindness.
Can't there be a "Legacy Option" to revert it to the Version 14 bland color style?
Are there any other Vegas users out there with semi-typical form of male "color blindness"? Has the UI change in V15 affected you as it has me?
For normal people I found this site which lets you simulate how it (may) look to someone like me. Take a screenshot and use: http://www.color-blindness.com/coblis-color-blindness-simulator/
I know I'm a minority and some say I shouldn't be in the editing field w/ my handicap but I really hope you consider us.
Thanks for reading,
