Hello Chunon, today I updated my disk's thread with information about how the Automated Measurement Procedure Batch Files for CalMAN 5 works with every detail, you can read it here
If you like to test that feature, you can download the Free (Lite) Version of my Disk
where you can test that feature using CalMAN's ColorChecker Classic measurements (24 Colors) to see how it works.
I have chosen one pattern size of 11.11% pattern size (same as Lumagen were using for years before adding before months the capability of custom sizes) that is very close at the Accupel's 10.85% Pattern size that is the most classic pattern size that a lot of pro calibrators are using for all display technologies, to have one size for all displays.
The fact is that the Lumagen had 11.11% window patterns for many years (before custom size option become available) shows that they did some testing to various display to choose that size.
When you are using small patches you may prevent ABL problems but when you watching a movie, the APL are higher and also APL levels are not fixed, they are floating, had to do with each scene of movie.
If you check the of Fiji's IS-Mini Manager; the software that is coming with Fiji-IS Mini 3D LUT Box for display profing:
Fiji IS-Mini works also as a hardware pattern generator and I saw at it's Settings window that it has by default the 640x360 pixels of Window Pattern size which is the exact size like my disk's window patterns.....like the Lumagen Radiance Window Patterns 11,11% are using also
This shows that the Professional Industry where Fuji IS-Mini is designed to be used, the default window size is 11,11% for color patches.
If you see at professional industry world for example, CineTAL's DAVIO was recommending about 25%-40% window patterns for Panasonic Plasmas:
This picture is coming from Cine-Tal Davio Plasma Calibration Workflow
This Window Pattern Size of 25-40% was the suggested one for Panasonic Professional Series Plasma's, I got the same size suggestion from THX CineSpace Support for Plasma Profilings, when i was using THX CineSpace Evaluation Software.
