As noted above,i'm not what you would consider a "technical expert" and will hardly explain it in that manner as well.I am fairly basic when it comes to calibrating,limited to calibration discs and don't have any instruments outside of that.Well maybe just an SPF meter...lol.
I come from a background in graphic arts as well as fine arts and rely on that in the end to finalize the video presentation on my display.With all the calibration you can do technically,i feel that how it really looks visually in the end is what truly matters.
As far as the RGBYMC controls,i felt that it was crucial and indeed helpful.Each one allows you to manipulate the Hue,Saturation and Gain,i guess that's basic...WIth the Green and Yellow,i ended up toning them down and the Blue and Red were increased.(For 3D, i ended toning down the Yellow as well)
I have some basic philosophies that i go by: Go as deep with your blacks without crushing and loosing the details,Go as bright without blooming and losing the details.Second,the skin tones have to stay realistic without over coloring.The skin is probably going to be the least "colorful" in a real world.And as far as color,you would like a vibrant picture without bleeding of course.Contrast from my background in art has been very affective in visually presenting your "art" The more the better but still staying within my basic guidelines.
With the Epson,i basically had it to low and with 3D, it was completely disabled.
From Kaine and a few other forums i visited,it was noted and concluded that the Optoma was triple flash compatible in 3D.Don't ask me how to explain that one.How do you go from 2D to 3D and end up with 144 Hz.? Where in 2D,Optoma can only do 120 Hz.
Anyway, i didn't really miss it on 2D since my use was very minimal.In 3D,the motion was very smooth with no artifacts to be seen and didn't have any judders or vibrations like the Epson did.The 5020 had a difficult time handling certain movies and contained "minimal vibrations" that's how i would explain it.Avatar was a good example where the Epson had this issue throughout.Optoma with the so-called triple flash was very smooth and didn't exibit any "vibrations or judder" and this is what i hoping for as well as the "non-ghosting"
Some of the difficult 3D movies with the 5020 when viewed with the Optoma had so much depth and realism,it was an eye opener indeed.Prometheus had a reputation as being very minimal with the 3d presentation from a lot of reviewers.So i revisited that one and was almost in disbelief with how much Pop and depth it had! It is one of the movies i am looking forward to with the Optoma.
