The problem I am having is understanding the correct way to setup LS to get it to run using my Mini as a pattern generator and my K10A as the meter.
imo LS is a very generic version of CM in the way its laid out.
btw, I am not trying LS because I don't like Calman but because of the hype.
as stated before, LS is a rather bare bones application with superior power under the hood... but u need to learn how to use it, although it is rather simple once u understand the workflow...
with the Klein in CLOSED LOOP (Lightspace controlling the Mini patterns) it'll take roughly 1h 40 mins +/- whatever delay u set for the pattern to stabilize on your VT50 plasma for a 17p DC (4913 reads) ... if you choose DIP mode, then this is an option where the patterns are displayed for a fixed set of time (e.g. 7 sec each) and this can be time synced with a BD player using Ted's disk - this mode takes much longer, and that's probably what u incorrectly selected...
setup in your case for a full 17p DC:
> setup your VT50 properly before doing a profile (very, very important - do this carefully and correctly) - in ISF, set color space to WIDE and gamma to 2.4 on the VT50 (it will match 2.2)
> connect Mini to PC (as stated before you need a proper serial-to-usb cable for LS to recognize and control the Mini - one of my generic serial-to-usb cable that worked with CM does not work with LS)
> connect meter to PC and position correctly for screen readings
> start LS
> set the Mini as the pattern generator under File > Upload - it's there where u also choose the pattern size
> open the DISPLAY CHARACTERIZATION dialog box
> set all appropriate meter options under PROBE OPTIONS - set DELAY time here for the patterns to stabilize on a plasma, choose whatever you like, the longer the delay the longer the 17p will take, I use 1sec with the VT50
> click OK to get back to the DISPLAY CHARACTERIZATION dialog box
> select 3D CUBE, choose 17 SIDES in the slider for a full 17p characterization
> select CLOSED LOOP
> total frames and time will now be estimated in the lower, greyed out text fields - 4913 frames, time: variable (depending on meter)
> hit MEASURE to start your 17p DC
> optionally, before u do a full DC (DISPLAY CHARACTERIZATION), u could do a QP (Quick Profile), to get an overview on what state your display is currently in (and possibly adjust your setup):
> to do a QP, open the CALIBRATION INTERFACE dialog box
> again set all appropriate meter options under PROBE OPTIONS - always exit with OK
> click on PROFILE to get to the QUICK PROFILE sub menu
> select CLOSED LOOP (if u have the Mini setup as pattern generator, or you could use this for HDMI Out patterns)
> select to profile primaries (RGB) only or primaries and secondaries (RGBYMC)
> select START to start your QP
hope this helps, buddy
