What is a RAZERCHROMA file?
A RAZERCHROMA file is a color profile used to determine how the LEDs in a Razer PC and accessories light up. RAZERCHROMA files are created using Synapse 2 Chroma Studio. In Synapse 3, .CHROMAEFFECTS files replaced RAZERCHROMA files.
Razer is a Singaporean-American company that sells a variety of PC-related products, including desktop PCs, gaming keyboards, mice, fans, chargers, and mousepads. If a Razer device owner wants to control how the LEDs their product includes light up, they can do so using Chroma Studio, an RGB color profile creation tool included with Razer's Synapse hardware management program. Chroma Studio allows users to determine in what colors and patterns their LEDs light up, and it saves these settings as color profiles.
In Synapse 2, Chroma Studio saved users' color profiles as RAZERCHROMA files. However, in Synapse 3, Chroma Studio began saving users' color profiles as CHROMAEFFECTS files. These files are not interchangeable, so if you want to recreate a Synapse 2 color profile in Synapse 3, you will have to do so manually.
How to open a RAZERCHROMA file
You can open a RAZERCHROMA file in Synapse 2 Chroma Studio (Windows, Mac). Doing so will allow you to adjust the color and pattern settings your RAZERCHROMA file contains. Remember, you cannot open RAZERCHROMA files in other versions of Synapse.
