I was trying to get a comparison between the spyder2pro and HCFR DIY probes over the weekend, but the spyder lacked a dll file to run with HCFR so I had to give up.
But I have managed to get my DIY working. I managed to address some of the addivity issues, that is lower them to 15% from 30% on my PC LCD screen by postioning the probe closer as suggested by Laric.
Now I have got onto some actual readings I'm in a learning curve as what does what.
My first question is, is it possible to set the basics of brightness and contrast via the HCFR software and DIY probe?
I had to revert to my DVE disc to set brightness, black level first.
Next question is about color and tint; what can you do if the CIE triangle is way off with one color, in my case green on my projector. It seems that color and tint only adjust balance between the primaries not individual saturation.
I've attached 3 zips with HCFR runs with my DIY probe.
I have alot to learn to get these right, so far I am a bit off base.
The phillips one I got the RGB tracking together nicely, delta e looked good, but dispite the RGB fitting nice the gamma went awol and the picture look awful dispite the grey scale right on the money.
The next 2 is my AE900 runs, here I am trying to get the basic CIE triangle on track.
Thes were done in Cinema1 with no filters and my screen is just a painted surface(firehawk shade of grey)
Run 001 I tried to do color and tint via the HCFR software, but I am fighting green.
I had a small tweak of individual RGB and got some tracking.
Run 002 I did color and tint via DVE. Green is an issue again, I could see errors whilst tweaking the levels in DVE, but couldn't seem to do anything about them.
I see inaccuracies with my results through 2 pieces of software, and it is this issue which led me to build a DIY probe, to confirm what I was seeing in DVE and visually when watching movies.
anyone got any ideas on how to tackle the green saturation issue.
