When they are dim and I move my hand in front of them I get this weird "tracer" type phenomenon, but it doesn't happen with the halogen bulbs in the same scenario. I'm thinking it's the color temp, but it's really annoying to function that way in low light. Has anyone else experienced this? Am I crazy?
Just buy warmer LEDs. Everything is available these days. Probably cheaper than a filter, and very likely more effective.
As for the "tracer", you are probably seeing a strobe effect from the pulse-width modulation from your dimmer. You don't see it with halogen because the bulb doesn't have time to cool between pulses. LEDs turn off instantly. Try replacing your dimmer with one designed for LEDs.
