Q1: Why my laptop GPU utilization is getting higher after Aura Wallpaper activate?

A1: We suggest checking Windows Task Manager with GPU Power usage, then you can see that the actual Aura Wallpaper does not affect the overall performance and power consumption. Once Aura Wallpaper activated, it will occupy some GPU resource, so  the GPU utilization goes up, but due to Task Manager usually doesn't count all GPU Power Usage and GPU Clock rate, so the GPU utilization  looks may higher than actual.


Q2: Can I edit Aura Wallpaper lighting effects through Aura Creator?

A2: For now, each Aura Wallpaper has exclusive lighting effect and feature already, so there is not yet to provide for customizing lighting effects through Aura Creator.
