I tried calibrating 3D again last night, but I'm still having difficulty. When I finished my attempt, I realized I'm not playing back my AVS calibration disk from my desktop which is using Cal PC calibrated to D65 for 2D. Will this be a problem trying to calibrate because video is set to 0-255 with YCC 4:4:4 (16-235) output? Also, Sotti, my old ATI HD3850 did not have the option for 0-255 for video playback, but my new HD7750 does have that option now, so it must be a newer implementation in the software compared to the CCC 11.4 that I was using before.
It still seems that I can get decent readings at 30 and 40 IRE but 70, 80, and greater IRE don't read well at all. With 50-60 IRE I get low blue readings and high red and green, but when I change to 70 and higher IRE I get extreme blue and extremely low red and green. If anyone is familiar with Panasonic TVs or 3D active shutter glasses in general, would be be strange to have Blue Drive at a really low value? I have red and green in the upper ranges, both Fn, but I had blue down at Cn. But even when I cranked blue up to Fn it didn't read any higher than before.
It seemed to help setting 2D-3D to separate left and right images and syncing the glasses and making for the transmitting lens is in front of the proper frame. I have my glasses taped to an i1 Display Pro on a tripod about 18-24" away. I also noticed it's difficult to tell a difference between my 2D WB calibrations and my attempted 3D WB calibration (wearing glasses). Does Panasonic offset the selected color temp when it enters 3D? As I've mentioned before, the only way I can do WB calibration is through the service menu repurposing one of the color temps (cool).
