I have a laptop with integrated Intel graphics and can choose either RGB or YCbCr with a linear gamma of 1.0
I've been using YCbCr and from what you have written in your earlier post, the pattern generator should probably be set to 0-255 in this case.
I am matching against a blue ray player that can be configured for RGB, YCbCr (4:2:2) or YCbCr (4:4:4). I've been using YCbCr (4:4:4) but if there is any reason could use (4:2:2) if it better (that is the native encoding of Bluray 1080p, correct?).
So I guess my question is if YCbCr (4:4:4) from my Bluray player is matching pretty well against the generator using 0-255 and configured for YCbCr with 1.0 linear gamma, is there any reason I may want to use Bluray player on RGB and generator using 16-235 and configured for RGB with 1.0 linear gamma instead?
And my other question surrounds the SKIN ColorChecker patterns - I am able to generate and drive CCSG through Bluray and disk, but when I switch to SKIN, I can generate fine, but when I switch to DVD manual, load up the SKIN patterns on the disk, and try Measure Saturations Color Checker, I get an Initialization Error (but the same sequence works fine with CCSG) -is there anything special I need to do to use SKIN Color Checker patterns on a disk?
