Crafting tables, furnaces, brewing stands, enchantment tables, looms, chests, and other containers all dim the screen when accessed.
Three GUIs do not follow this pattern: signs, command blocks, and books (in hand or via a lectern). Instead, they actually brighten the screen by removing the vignette. Observe the following three screenshots:
Normal gameplay (vignette active)
**Regular GUI (screen dim)
Book/command block (screen light, vignette gone)
How to reproduce
- Go underground somewhere where the vignette is clearly visible, but it's still bright enough to see.
- Open a chest.
→ The screen is dimmed
- Open a book.
→ The screen is not dimmed, and the vignette disappears
