CinemaDrape Review

Tina de Pierre
Desktop enhancement that helps increase productivity and focus by dimming areas of the screen while keeping selected area bright
A review of CinemaDrape by Tina de Pierre

CinemaDrape is a Windows desktop enhancement tool which helps you focus on what you're doing by dimming the rest of the desktop.

The program is a portable application which means installation is not required; just run the executable and you have access to all of the features that CinemaDrape has to offer.

The main goal of this program is to help reduce the amount of distraction other content on the screen may be causing. CinemaDrape can be useful for working with word processing (ie. for writers), watching windowed video playback or for reading eBooks. In fact, it can be used for any task, really.

The application allows you to set the degree of darkening to your liking and you may also adjust the size of the darkened area either by customized sizing or by using a number of predefined sizes. Creating customized sizes is not too dissimilar from selecting a recording area in many video capture applications.

All of the options of CinemaDrape are accessible from the system tray where you can change the level of opacity, the background color, reset to black and more. You can also pause and resume using the application with the CTRL F11 keyboard shortcut (which may be customized).

In conclusion, CinemaDrape can make watching videos or working on other tasks more enjoyable and less stressful by blurring out distractions.

  • Helps you when writing an important document, watching an online video, composing an email

  • New transparent focus area is like drawing a rectangle
  • Move or resize the focus areas using the mouse or arrow keys
